You know something is seriously wrong with the world when ...

... it's the middle of winter. And a buzzing mosquito wakes you in the middle of the night.
... there are fruit flies in your coffee sludge. You just put the mug down five minutes ago and all the windows are closed.
... you start drinking bottled water because the tap water smells like chlorine - even after you run the tap for ages.
... the bag of onions you just bought yesterday already have mould growing on them.
... the house was cleaned top to bottom. The next day you walk through the house barefoot and your feet go black.
... there is a bomb one block from your apartment and you wake up thinking a helicopter rammed into the side of your building from the sheer force of the explosion (ps: this happened while I was unplugged. You can see a broadcast HERE.)

  4. Way to scary. I'm also thinking birds falling from the sky and crazy floods.
    Not a good feeling.

  6. Yikes. The only good thing about winter is escaping the bugs for a few months.

    That bomb was a little too close to home, if you ask me.

  7. I can't imagine how frightening something like that would be. I wasn't aware that Athens had been plagued by so many explosions. Stay safe.

  14. Oh my gosh. That looks really aweful. Did this just happen? I never turn on the TV anymore, I guess I need to keep up on what's going on in the world. It's a crazy place.

  15. Oh my goodness! How awful. It especially gets to me when the exterior is gone from a house and the indoors becomes outdoors. So symbolic of how their lives have just changed.

  21. This is like the beginning of one of those end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it mnovies... probably feels like it too. I recommend a large gin and tonic or two to calm the nerves.
