Come the Bosnians

We are really just guessing what this is all about, but we figure it was someone being welcomed to Perth.  Our Bosinan sources tell us that the translation of "Dobra Dosla" is welcome to a female, rather than a male. 

The message also proclaims in large letters "MNJAUUU".  Randomperth has unsuccessfully tried to decipher whether this is the name of the person being welcomed or a reference to something else.


Anyhow, if you know what this is about, please let us know.

Mexican Gold .... and we are not talking about tequila

Today Eliza is seemingly celebrating a massive win by Mexico against the global soccer giants, Brazil, in the Olympic gold medal match last month.  We can only presume this because a cursory google search revealed no other London gold medal wins for the land of Corona and Quesadillas.

Mexico scored two goals against the one by Brazil, who has won five of the nineteen FIFA World Cup Tournaments that have been played.  Mexico, who hosted the Cup tournament in 1986, has never won it.

You get a sense of the symbolism of this victory when The New York Times proclaims that it ... "is likely to be hailed by many Mexicans as the greatest ever for the national team".   See: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/12/sports/olympics/mexico-downs-brazil-in-olympics-soccer.html?_r=0

We are just pleased that Eliza was around to help celebrate a massive Olympuic win by a country whose food sits right at the very heart of many domestic and commercial kitchens in Perth.

Phew! Eliza is Phinished.


So Eliza has turned in her speedos for a mortar board and gone all nerdy on us.

Randomperth offers up our hearty congrats to the lucky guy or gal who has just completed a gruelling university stint to secure their doctorate of philosophy (PhD).  You can tell that this stunt was pulled by an intellectual giant because of the play on words in their clebratory message ... "Phinished".

So the lucky Phinisher will henceforth be known as Doctor Soandso.  A real doctor.  Not like those Phraudsters who call themselves "doctor" after simply completing a medical degree.

So if you are the successful Phinisher who has pulled this little nerdy dress-up stunt, please tell us about yourself and on what topic you have dedicated yourself to for the past four years or so of your life.

Phew!
