Mierda maliciosa y muslos musculosos / Catty sh*t and thunderous thighs

La versión en español está después de la versión en inglés.

I WALKED TO THE PORT of Fuengirola yesterday (where I saw those fish) because I saw the Nao Victoria had returned. It’s a replica of the first ship to circumnavigate the earth in the 16th century and it was initially captained by Magellan (Correction: Nao Victoria was one of a fleet of five ships of which Magellan was fleet commander). The replica was built in 1991 and, in 2004, it repeated the original around-the-world trip, which was the first time a historic replica circumnavigated the earth. The ship was supposed to open to the public starting yesterday, but it wasn’t open when I was there. I don’t know if they were behind schedule or closed for siesta.

I’ll go back during the week — when I’m not tooling around on my own for the first time behind the wheel of our car. Last night was another strawberry moon, the last supermoon of 2021. And now to the title of today’s post.

First, the thunderous thighs. I saw two guys setting up volley ball nets on the beach yesterday. One guy appeared to be sporting the Fuengirola style of shorts with one leg pulled up higher than the other. That wasn’t actually the case. His shorts were so tight on his massive thighs that every time he bent over and came back up, the legs wouldn’t drop back down to their original position.

Then there’s the Catty sh*t. Today I managed to grab a shot of a delivery van as it quickly pulled away. It was a catering van and at a glance I read the name as Cati Schitt, which to me obviously sounded like Catty Sh*t. It turns out the company name is Cati Schiff, not Schitt. Maybe it’s simply the name of the owner, although I like my version better.


AYER CAMINÉ AL PUERTO DE Fuengirola (donde vi esos peces) porque vi que la Nao Victoria había vuelto. Es una réplica del primer barco que dio la vuelta a la tierra en el siglo XVI e inicialmente fue capitaneado por Magellan. (Corrección: Nao Victoria era uno de una flota de cinco barcos de los cuales Magellan era el comandante de la flota). La réplica fue construida en 1991 y, en 2004, repitió el viaje original alrededor del mundo, que fue la primera vez que una réplica histórica dio la vuelta a la tierra. Se suponía que el barco abriría al público a partir de ayer, pero no estaba abierto cuando estuve allí. No sé si se retrasaron o cerraron para la siesta.

Volveré durante la semana — cuando no esté manejando por mi cuenta por primera vez detrás del volante de nuestro automóvil. Anoche fue otra luna de fresa, la última superluna de 2021.

Y ahora al título de la entrada de hoy. Primero, los muslos musculosos. Ayer vi a dos tipos colocando redes de voleibol en la playa. Un tipo parecía estar luciendo el estilo de pantalones cortos de Fuengirola con una pierna levantada más alta que la otra. En realidad, ese no fue el caso. Sus pantalones cortos estaban tan ajustados en sus muslos musculosos que cada vez que se inclinaba y volvía a subir, las piernas no volvían a bajar a su posición original.

Luego está la mierda maliciosa. Hoy me las arreglé para tomar una foto de una camioneta de reparto mientras se alejaba rápidamente. Era una furgoneta de catering y de un vistazo leí el nombre como Cati Schitt, que para mí obviamente sonaba como Catty Shit (que signfica mierda maliciosa). Resulta que el nombre de la empresa es Cati Schiff, no Schitt. Tal vez sea simplemente el nombre del propietario, aunque me gusta más mi versión.

• Two passengers in green vests were being taken out to sea, where they’d climb into the little raft being towed and then pulled along at high speed until they perhaps fall out.
• Dos pasajeros con chalecos verdes estaban siendo sacados al mar, donde subían a la pequeña balsa que estaban remolcando y luego tiraban a gran velocidad hasta que tal vez se cayeran.
• My chariot awaits.
• Mi carruaje me espera.

      Don’t let my mind go where it’s going. What are “ffs”? I’m drawing a blank and I know it’s something obvious.

  1. Wait until Deedles gets a load of those thighs!!!!

    And Cati Schitt would be a horrible name for a caterer … unless they catered to cats???

    For now, i return to the thighs and the culo attached to them.

    1. Bob:
      Yes, great thighs and culo. I wonder how Cati Schitt sounds to a Spanish mind.

  2. So you drove? Those thighs are a tad extreme for my taste.
    I was hoping the hibiscus flowers were on your terrace, but I can see that they are not.
    Cool ship – I hope you take the tour and report back with photos!

    1. Wilma:
      Haven’t driven yet. Planning to drive Monday for the first time. I’m still trying to get the hibiscuses on the terrace to hold their blooms. One plant does fine. More photos of that one, at least, to come. I might even try to tour the ship today.

  3. I approve of the butt-bump. Very hygienic in the troubled times… not to mention photogenic.

    1. Jennifer:
      I have a feeling with thighs like those, it’s not easy to find a pair of shorts that won’t get stuck.

  4. I knew something was up, or out, when I saw mierda. It looks like Schitt to me. You had me laughing with towing the passengers till they fall out. Those are some big thighs. He must do a lot of squats, but oh, well, butts together! Did you dare to drive with all the uncertainty? I will be impressed if you did or didn’t.


    1. Janie:
      I’m going to take my chances behind the wall Monday for the first time. I’ve been assured it’s OK (not that I believe it, but I’ve been assured).

    1. mcpersonalspace54:
      We bought a Prius in 2004 and it was our favorite car. So, when we were ready to buy a car here, we didn’t debate it. And, yeah, those are massive thighs.

  5. Okay I see that I missed an important post on June 23 (busy, you know, birthday-ing 😉 )… you are apt! Or were apt! Or whatever (because that expression escapes me, anyway). Ha! It’s still all so weird that you are not in the system there. And, I see what you’re referring to about the legal issue. Shaking my head. At least you’re not running a business called Catty Shitt!

    1. Judy C:
      Cati Schitt… Poor font choice, I think, and maybe not the catchiest name. Not very apt.

  6. I do love thighs and eyes and everything in between! Proportional too,yum! I’m trying this on my ithingy for the first time so I’ll leave it like this, short and no mention of cat stuff.

    1. Deedles:
      I’m with you about my physcial attributes. Everything in between. I hope you’re enjoying your ithingy.

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      I think they usually retrieve the passengers. I was on the ship a few years ago. Will try to visit again today and get better photos. I think it leaves tomorrow.

    1. Urspo:
      And an interesting font choice that makes the name even more memorable.

Please share your thoughts...
