Red Hot Chili Peper

Well, about a few months ago I decided to learn a couple of things regarding how to grow plants.

Not just plants, more specifically I mean small stuff like garlic, onions, peper, "salsa" (don't know the english translation) and such.

I live on a small flat so there isn't much space where one can grow plants and I ended up choosing a spot next to the kitchen from where I could see how they would grow from day to day.

Was a cold January right after returning home from vacations that I started and throughout the months I've been collecting some of the results from these experiences.

Not all my plants went well, for example, the location that I originally selected to place the plants was only exposed to direct sun light during a short period of time in the morning which proved to be very insufficient, also, I wasn't aware that some plants required a lot of earth and room to grow. I had placed most of them on very tiny pots where one could only expect troubles.

Eventually, I started a fresh one from scratch on the opposite side of my house where I will leave the plants with much more direct exposition to the sunlight.

Two days ago I've collected my first red hot chili pepers and this pretty much concluded the first season with of nuno vs plants. Now I'll wait to see how the next season goes until December.

eheh.. Yes sir, the pepers I gathered were d**m fine.

My wife wanted to eat chicken soup the other day but I wasn't happy with just a soup and decided to coke my own spicy pasta with chicken. Gave a try to these pepers and placed only one of these specimens inside the boiling pan.

One peper was well more than enough and I'm glad she didn't wanted to try a bit for the sake of her health - it was way spicier than one could imagine and I only managed to eat the meal after drinking a huge amount of water and some effort.

Talk about a learning a lesson the hard way - if you're a smart fellow then don't follow my example and avoid exaggerating on the condiments.


That's all about it for the latest news in life at the moment.

Thanks for reading, be well.


wise teeth complications

Who ever said that the wise teeth only appeared when an individual is "wiser" couldn't be utterly more wrong if they asked me..

Two days ago began the emerge of the "wise teeth" that brought nothing but pain, hassle and expenses.

For the first time in years (more than I can even remember), I actually went inside an hospital to treat myself.

Of course that I was too hesitant to place a foot of mine inside such place for such a tiny teeth issue and as a reward on the next day I woke up with my mouth and face completely transfigured as the infection spread to the rest of mouth giving me that sort of "punch bag" look.

After two nights without much sleep, a lot hot tea and teeth brushing trying to calm the infection I eventually had to seek professional help and went to visit the good doctor on the public hospital that quickly prescribed two boxes of drug pills that will serve both as antibiotic and pain relief.

Good part is that I got to stay at home as my face looked a bit like the famous hunchback from notre dame but it's no fun at all as I can't really chew anything and I eventually get bored too quickly when I'm not busy with something.

Today I went back to work, still have a "punch-bag" look on my face but I'd rather be here because it will at the very least keep my head outside these complications for a while.

I also get quite annoying when I'm sick so maybe my wife can also enjoy some piece of mind while I'm not around.. ;)


A single word of advise for all the others who ignore their teeth - don't!

It was my bad for ignoring these teeth for so long or only visit the dentist in the last of all cases when absolutely necessary and I've learn my lesson to keep it straight and try to keep the dentist visits on my schedule more often.


Busy days..

Seems like it is a terrible thing to stay at work during the August month.

I deducted that since most of my fellow co-workers would be away on vacations during this month then I would naturally be less busy with daily work and have more time for my hobbies but this spell has surely turned against the wizard.. ;)

Since most people are away, those who stayed also need to perform the tasks that were previously assigned to others which means a crazy month trying to get everything into place.

Well.. One of my new assignments is to manage the local coffee shop that is used by our workers.
My duties include the responsibility of ensuring that all money accounting and paperwork are done correctly and that the coffee workers do their work right.

It's not nearly as easy as I first imagined.

When I grow up I'll likely not be interested in owning a coffee shop myself. If I account all the headaches to ensure that the money flow and profit are fully balanced and ensure the overall conditions of the place are left a bit better when I pass this duty to someone else I can't imagine how someone can actually enjoy some quality of life.

To improve things, my own staff at the computer department also checked out on vacations, meaning that I'm now completely alone getting my daily dosage of computer reinstalls, virus cleaning, client support and network diagnostic since our own electrical grid decided to go crazy and take along some of the machines and equipment not protected with UPS.

Oh well, that's a life lesson to remember next year.

Guess next time I will plan my vacations in advance to see them last all the way from July up to August..
