The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

That's the true meaning of Easter, praying to the Pibb god.

Spoiler:
Rimsky-Korsakov said in his autobiography that he was eager to reproduce "the legendary and heathen aspect of the holiday, and the transition from the solemnity and mystery of the evening of Passion Saturday to the unbridled pagan-religious celebrations of Easter Sunday morning".[This quote needs a citation] He had always been interested in – and enjoyed – liturgical themes and music, though he was himself a non-believer.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I always win.

In my own little world.

Mrs. Camel went God-Bothering on Easter Sunday, as is her wont. Warbling away to the faithful.

I, however, stayed in bed until noon, had a pleasant wander around the nature reserve where I volunteer, (chuckling at the poor girl who'd agreed to wear the Easter Bunny costume and hand out melting chocolate to the kids in 24C temperatures), smirked at the perspiring warden and his wife, washed a few pots, just to show willing, and biked my sorry old arse into Manchester.

Where I...

Snorted at the antics in the Gay Village. :)

Visited the Manchester Museum to see how the upgrade is progressing. (Very well.) :)

Scoffed a gargantuan double kobeda at T3h Rusholme Chippy™. :)

Quaffed two pints of Guinness at The Albert. :)

Burped and farted a lot whilst smoking a churchwarden-full of buttered rum tobacco at Platt Fields Park. :)

Pedalled the rest of my five miles way home, trying but failing to not notice copious quantities of female flesh on display. :)

And concluded my day out by snarfing port-soaked stilton cheese on crackers with a VAT blended Scotch accompaniment. :)

When Friedrich Engels wrote of "Manchester Man" he was referring to this species:

The Kraut bastard didn't know what he was talking about.

Manchester Man is...

Well, Jabez Clegg, from a novel by Isabella Banks.

There used to be a thriving pub in student-land named for the hero but it, alas, has gone the way of all things.
