Eggs from Sainsbury’s. Organic eggs, out of a refrigerator, intended for cracking into a frying pan. BEGAT LIFE. Well she’s written about the […]

A Drunk’s Logic

South Dakota’s started a “24/7 Sobriety Program” that seems to be working well and is being copied all over the place. It makes people come in for twice-daily breath tests, wherein you actually have to show up, in person, every 12 hours, to prove you haven’t been tying one on (or making your 9-year-old get […]

Of Flags and Fruit Baskets

I went into the office today finally to claim a desk. Peter went in for his first day of work and came home with a small goody bag. Apparently there’s a whole fruit stand on his desk but I’m not cool enough to see yet. He’s having a team lunch tomorrow, see. :( Then the […]

And Now: Baseball

(A passing mention about Stephen Hawking in a newspaper column made me Wiki him to see if there are any photos of him before he got sick which made me read up on his illness which made me read up on Lou Gehrig. Gawd I lurve Wiki.) Apropos of nothing at all, here’s the equivalent […]

Filed Under: “Pop Music,” “Brain Candy,” “Non-Intellectually Stimulating”

It’s a sign of my emotional state these days that I’ve spent a lot of time catching up on Cheryl Cole’s pop video oeuvre. Apparently they’re importing her to judge an American X-Factor. I view this as a Bad Thing: Obviously they’ll make her drop her accent and her accent is the most incredible thing […]

Relocatin’, Day IV

We’re literally on the fruit company’s door step (well not literally but across the freeway). My laptop is plugged in (woo, chargers!) but as yet unopened. Meanwhile, (RC2 seems to have overcome her conference fever and has been making me laugh. And no, the iPad 3G is like 30 bucks a month, which is a […]

Relocatin’, Day III

It’s a sign of how bad the WordPress iPhone app is that I can’t be bothered to even open it for two days, and in fact don’t even think of it, whereas I can happily tweet away for days. It’s because they want to give you control over everything you would in the main blog […]
