Mr and Mrs Caveman

Meet Mr and Mrs Caveman.

Gra and Rog, the cave dwellers

This is Gra and Rog.

Gra is the female of the clan while Rog, with his beard, is obviously the male of the clan. Both are equally in charge and not at all in charge, at the same time.  They were once human, but after 4 days of a rare November Adelaide heatwave, they have reverted back to their cavemen habits.

Gra tends to the day to day computer work at home while Rog does homework when home and twice weekly gets on his Suzuki-saurus and heads to the city to learn more about programming than even he thought was possible to learn.

When together, the once vibrant couple now greet each other with grunts.  Current habits include dunking their head under a spray of cold water to keep cool along with a couple of cold showers a day.  Another favourite pastime is watching TV in their darkened bedroom with the ceiling fan on.

As the heatwave progresses (it is now expected to ease up slightly on Monday), it is a concern how far this pair will regress.  Will they start flinging objects and one another or simply fade into the cave and cease all communication all together? Only time will tell.

We don’t know why she’s smiling in both photos, but perhaps she has just reached the point of no return and her mind no longer comprehends misery. Whatever, best to leave her to her smiles and not interrupt her evolution… or was that devolution?

21Sep20  Quick and easy pasta and veg made with @vettapasta’s new Ready Pasta Fibre Penne.  I wanted to have some pasta for dinner but was having leftovers so didn’t feel like cooking. I had a packet of the Ready Pasta so made that, microwaved my green beans and then added parmesan and garlic butter to give it some WOW.  Perfect dish for one person and all done in under 5 minutes.  It went well with my leftovers and I had my veggies too.  The pasta is a winner. It tastes exactly like I’d made it myself, and saved me a heap of time too.  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #easypastaandveg
22Sep20  New vape.  This is a beautiful Rainbow Eleaf iStick Rim C.  I ordered it in June and finally received it today.  It came via the Netherlands so of course it was opened by Border Force.  It perfectly matches my rainbow Crown 4 tank.  The “C” in the name is because it charges using a USB-C cable and is fast charging. You add your own battery to it so I can have a spare ready to go. It’s small, fits well in my pocket and even though the sides are quite smooth the back has a rubber strip on it so grips well. It’s early days but I think this one is winner.  #2020pad #vaping #vapegear #eleafistickrimc #uwellcrown4tank
17Sep20  I had an appointment at Flinders today for my carpal tunnel issues and a friend took me and brought me home. I’ve had a change in my meds recently so until I’m completely used to them, I get a bit befuddled. I’ve done a lot of dumb things this week but losing my keys at the hospital was right up there.  I had to have neighbours (who have a set of my housekeys) let me in.  And then, a few hours later I double checked my purse and there they were. NOT lost, after all. YUP. It’s been that kind of week.  #2020pad #keys #lostandfound #frustratedbutgrateful #befuddled #medchanges

21Aug20 BUNNY!  This cute little bunny blankie belonged to somone really special to me.  They used to sit holding it sucking on two fingers.  When I ran into Bunny while visiting family, I first took it to the original owner who let me have it as a keepsake. So sweet. #keepsake #cf20 #muchlatergram #bunny #fisherpricebunny
