Stick 'em Up.

Maybe you are not the driver of your car. Maybe you can take the hands off the wheel, look out the window and enjoy the vista. As my friend Alex added "maybe you are not in the car at all".

Don't mention it

"The most reassuring thing about zen is it's lack of answers". But what about the questions says Rudra.

Rudra's Friend

Rudra's friend Timmy was 7 + tax today. See the card he got. Rudra, who despite being a fundamentalist aetheist (elsewhere he describes himself as a Jehovah's Witnes says archivist Didier Defargo), came out of a Zen retreat (?) with this gem "Maybe things aren't what they seem to be, but they're probably not something else either".

Ab ovo usque ad mala

"From the egg right to the apples. Horatius 65-8 B.C.

Due to a surfeit of chicken, Rudrina (Rudra's feminine aspect) is in need of bodily balance. We learn that a trip to the Indian Sub-continent is in prospect and that she has availed of the following offer:

It is to inform you that summer discount @ 25% on total cost of Panchkarma Treatment covering the period from 15th May 2007 to 31st August 2007 has been approved. Please send your kit & kin for availing the good opportunity and take the Panchkarma Treatment and inform the other persons also who are not enjoying this facility during the season time so that the paucity of time would not affect.

Kit and kin have been duly notified as we are sure that the paucity of time will not affect.

Rudra himself is preparing for an Amazonion adventure and taking all possible precautions against the Phoneutria Nigriventer*. (Investigations report that men bitten by the Phoneutria Nigriventer experienced priapism - long and painful erections.)

*You find this species in the southern and southeast of Brazil and in parts of northern Argentina.

Vote Meher No. 1.

Rudra votes according to the state of the teeth like many a good horse doctor. The less teeth the more he votes. On being asked his age he opined; "as old as my tongue and a little older than my teeth".

Rushka, Rudra's half brother and a fellow spiritual pygmy, was briefly ' taught' by the Indian 'Master' Meher Baba (1925-1969). If we didn't know that Meher was no longer with us we could surmise that he is standing for Fine Gael in Cork South-West in the General Election on May 24th 2007.

Unseated at The Chair

The intrepid Rudra was fool enough to participate in the Aintree Grand National but was 'unseated at The Chair' as the official report reads. This explains his recent vow of silence. It is in fact not elective, as many supposed. He suffered a rare and hopefully temporary brain injury that leads to him being unable to initiate any communication although he is well able to respond.
This condition might have some bearing on a communication just received from our corporate correspondent M.P.W of Kenmare and The Basque region:
"Despite his apparent fluency in the English tongue, Rudra still has some rudimentary problems to overcome, as witnessed when boasting about his recent work as understudy to the famous Western actor Boy Bodgers. "
