A rose by any other name would smell as… Hang on, can anyone smell burning?

Clicky! It’s Friday night, I’ve finished work until September… let’s party like teachers…

Friday night top

Yesterday I saw my name, quite unexpectedly on an article at the Slog.

the slog bonner mention

A Thoughful Man reckons our name comes from ‘debonaire‘. He might be right but it also has other meanings

‘The Bonner surname can be derived from a town in Scotland; or it can mean a chain of hills; hills for tillage; or, the hill of slaughter.’

Indeed, Clicky, a shamble is a device used by witches to detect and amplify magic… elsewhere it was a place to butcher and sell meat

Victorian Slang Bonner

Ha! Also yesterday, Clicky, from ‘Passing English of the Victorian Era’, a gift received from my Y’Ello good friend Mhehed Zherting… I lost my virginity to a boy named Hatton, you know…

What was I saying? Ah yes,Bonfire of the Vanities by Tom Wolfe is the ‘quintessential novel of the 1980s’.

I haven’t read the book but I have seen the film version by Brian Depalma…

Yeah, that opening shot is probably the best bit of the film, Clicky… 

Hugo brings fire to Merovee

Good thinking, Clicky…

And the day before, Hugo was posting burning man stories and images on Merovee. Last year Hugo brought us a Superb ‘Owl Burn-a-Debt with Bruno Mars (Roma Burns) sync 😉

So what has the week been like for financial markets?

  1. Satirical wit?! Its ROOOOOOBEE! 😀
    Bonfire. Bon in Francais is “good”.
    GOOD fire
    GODFIRE!

    And punny, I was just thinking about the merovingians having a shared “spiritual” gene. We are children of Abel, not Cain.
    Cain is dust to dust.
    Abel means “spirit” and “vanity”.

    Pneuma (πνεῦμα) is an ancient Greek word for “breath”, and in a religious context for “spirit” or “soul”.
