Animal Kingdom

After today's expedition, I was rather pleasantly surprised about the current state of Prague Zoo. The disastrous 2002 flood was, in the end, beneficial, because the whole lower part was re-developed and made into something resembling safari rather than traditional zoo.


It's also nice to note that there are now enough clean toilets, nice souvenir shops, passable food and refreshment and the whole place is dog-friendly (although dogs are prohibited in some indoor areas). One of the few foreign zoos I ever visited was in London and Prague zoo is currently much better than its London counterpart. Here are some photos - they are really just some random shots, in no way exhaustive.

Prague Zoo can be reached by pleasant walk through Stromovka park or by bus from "Nadrazi Holesovice" Metro station.

Les Saigon Miserables

I'm afraid someone is slightly confused about his musicals (click for large).

Commodore 64 Orchestra

After hearing this, I am seriously considering going to Amsterdam! What? It's in one week? OK, then probably not... :(

OK, I get it...

When Karolina got back from Trebon (where she was with the dogs), she brought me this "gift pack" (click for large photo):

I guess this is a subtle hint it's really over between us.

Let's Roll!

Because the dogs went on a vacation with fellow dogs for a few days, I can now do things that require no dogs around (because they could've been hurt):

Erlang is Fun

While looking for some Erlang tutorials, I found the following video:

This is NOT supposed to be funny. It was made in 1990 and the people featured are the actual people who developed the language. That's probably the reason why it resembles Monty Python sketch. At the same time, it's rather informative and - dare I say - poignant.

P.S: If you are looking for little less funny introduction to Erlang, read this.

The Ceremony is Over

Have you thought about what happens with all the rose petals after the wonderful expensive wedding?

The ceremony is over

Chucky is not a Kid Anymore!

Two days after his 3rd (21st) birthday, Chucky tries to be a man (dog) and fails miserably (for now). Click below for photos:

Chucky's 3rd Birthday

Today was Chucky's third birthday. That means he's 21 in dog years and if he lived in the US, he could now legally drink alcohol. Several people wished him well through the net and he even got a postcard!


I made a special cake for the boys and sung "Happy Birthday to you" to Chucky (in a very low voice). See here for the photos. The videos (in chronological order, three ingestion phases) are here, here and here. Someone will probably be very sick tomorrow...

This is Love!

My love, please don't switch this off!

Sadly, this is not my photo or photo taken in my flat. This is from someone called _KOFILA_ on Oh, the stories this photo tells! The text on the post-it note says "MY LOVE, PLEASE DON'T SWITCH THIS OFF".

Note the sad implication he's probably playing "Zelda: Four Swords" alone (because he uses the GC controller, not the GBA)! Or is he waiting for his loved one to join him? Or... was it her who was playing when he wasn't home? Most excellent...
