...other skies

Just flicking through my Flickr. I appear to have been pointing camera skyward over the last few weeks. Not sure that was a deliberate thing. Probably I'm just finding the Norfolk winter skies more stirring and inspirational than the plain grey of the last few months.

...mainly on course

At first Jennifer thought she had won first prize
Suprise turned to into dissapointment ,
turned into panic,
turned to flee,
turned into lunch.

...alien abductions

When Smithers was returned he spoke of weird experiments with what he called 'Udderpumps' & 'Milkins tools'

Commander Zog still didn't believe in Cows though.

Curiosity can be a dangerous thing.
...,but then so can a tiger.

Most of the time it's your curiosity is left satisfied....unless your question is "I wonder what that tiger eats"

(...another odd moment in my life)

...perceptions of nature

Perceptions of nature.
....mine, not everyones of course.

I think I'm right though :O).

...resevoir spuds

We have good days & bad days
I think this is the result of my bad day & finding dark humour in bad taste.

...I'm just glad my toys never turned the tables on me as a kid.

...The hard cell.

They say he crawled into an old Walkman & died.

Well that's what you get for playing loud music for hours on end I guess.

His own Volt you might say......pity he had potential.

...Just checking mate

With the game decided, Red concedes, but not before pointing out the light shade of pink in the White Kings offspring.

True art of bad loosing.

...weapons of mouse destruction

Weapons of mouse destruction.

By strange a coincidence this pair were called Shrewbert Einstein
& J. Rodent Oppenheimer.

Later Oppenheimer went on to develop Catomic power.

The world almost had kittens the first time it was used in anger.

...the D-plan diet

Carl loved dung, I mean really loved dung
,but sticking to this diet was really too much like pushing it up hill.

...cold or mildly tepid ?

We went sailing as planned this Sunday past.
The weather was not entierly planned, although it was taken on as a challenge.
(Well no one was backing down anyway)

Couple of things I've learned now about sailing in a snow storm.

1) The boat fills with snow
2) The bailers designed for the slightly more fluid version of water don't work with snow.
3) Which ever tack you are sailing on is the side of you that will form a small snow drift.
4) You always appear to be sailing into the stuff, even when sailing down wind.
5) It's quite cold on the ears.
6) Its quite cold on the toes.
7) It's best not to put your feet into the water.
8) Sailing into snow & eye glasses are the best combination.
9) Falling in the water no longer becomes a trivial option.
10) Hot tea is quite nice.
11) Your popularity wanes a smidgen if you forget to turn the heating on in the changing rooms.

...hard core

Born of bad seed & rotten to the core.
'Bad apple' Jack was wanted for rustling leaves & bushes all along the herbaceous borders, along with his gang of wild herbs.

...lament of a lost carrot

Jasper cursed when he caught the wrong bus, to the wrong side of town at the wrong time of day.
It was true, it was a warren of little streets with peeling eyes on each corner.

Fossil evidence for 'Cakedown man' can be found in the sedimentry soft strata between the layers we call the 'Battenburg slice'

...greedy cow

Dennis was not impressed by his share of the Sedge Fund.

Cud do better.

Popping such sharply, pointed questions often came with a gusty reply.

...I didn't moo it !

Sudden Chill ?
"Must be Autunm" thought Dennis

Tarquin later reflected & was glad he had not renovated the bathroom along the same theme.

Well that wouldn't last for long.
Jerry had other ideas.

...well that left Den's ears ringing & his ring err'ing.

The pasture was a strange place indeed.

...moss paranoia

Dennis looked & looked & looked, but despite his claims he never did find any evidence of the Weeds potential to kill off the moss. Only the odd lichen scrapper which at best could only damage a rock.
Eventually he went back to his feild feeling silly & still none the wiser as to what game the Weeds were playing.

...grass roots cynicism.

Oh, poor Dennis was such a one dimmensional & opaque fellow.
He should have stayed his side of the Bush with the other sheep.

...insurgent field oprative.

Dennis now had a little food for thought.
Poppies ! . The weeds appeared to be bringing the reds into the equation.
The field had suddenly became a far more complicated place.

Friday, September 19, 2008

...Troublesome weeds & super flower power.

In the back of his mind , Dennis always thought the daisies were plotting against him.
They seemed to pop up every where. Tripping up his every move.
This underground movement seemed to be growing underfoot.

Dennis felt a sudden shift in positions of power.
A possible 'New weed order'.
The seeds had been sewn.

So it's been a slow day
Iv'e got nothing in particular to demonstrate about.
Just letting the grass grow under my feet.

My appologies to Jasper Fforde for pinching the best line from one of his fine books.

...Fantasy Football :O(

Well I was asked at work if I wanted to contribute a team to the new Fantasy Football League season. (do I have to say Soccer ?)

Well being the person least interested in football in the world bar none, this was the team I arrived at.

Not sure they are going to accept it , but well give it a go.

After all it is a fantasy League. :O)

Name : Jabba the Hutt.
Club : The Tatooine Crime Lords
Position : Goal keeper
Cost : 3 slave girls

Iv'e chosen Jabba for his obvious athletic prowess & keenness to keep everything that approaches him.
Filling the goal mouth is a bonus as is the consumption of pitch invaders.

Name : Duke Nukem
Club : The highest bidder
Position : Right Back (in the thick of it)
Cost : 1 small planet.

The duke is in here for a big sweeping defence,
to kick arse & chew bubble gum .
Come get some !

Name : Daddy Bear
Club : Forrest
Position : Center Back
Cost : Hot Porridge & 3 picanic baskets

The biggest of the Three bears. Daddy bear will bring some stability the rear defence.

Name : Big Billy goat gruff.
Position : Left Back
Club : The Grimm Reapers
Cost : Bridge Toll

Notably the biggest of the Billy Goats Gruff
Defensively nothing gets past him. Good with his head as well as his feet. He will bridge any defensive gap & troll around the park relentlessly .

Name : Billy Whizz
Club : Beano
Position : Right Wing
Cost : 10 pence

Super fast Billy Whizz, the right wing belongs to him
....and that's just his political views.

Name : ScrappyDoo
Club : Mystery Inc.
Position : Center Midfield (and of attention)
Cost : Scoobysnacks

ScrappyDoo, a bit controversial. Never a popular one with the crowds. Scrappy has been included because I wanted a little terrier in the midfield. Not afraid to take on the opposition. Never the underdog, despite his size or his ego.

Name : The GingerBread Man
Club : The Bakers Dozen minus two.
Position : Left Wing
Cost : Chocolate buttons & kisses.

Ginger is in here for one reason.
He will run & run as fast as he can , you'll never catch him. He's the Ginger bread man.

Get the ball to him & it's game over for the opposition.

Name : Animal
Club : Muppet City
Position : Attacking Midfield
Cost : Drum sticks

I would give this chap the Captains job.
Bringing a calm & cool head Animal Is a clear leader, adding some rhythm to the team.
He will also beat any opposition to a beat too. !

Name : Asterix (The Gaul)
Club : The fighting Gauls
Position : Striker
Cost : 1 wild boar.

He may be small , but every now & then Astrix can add just that little bit of magic to a game .

Name : Desperate Dan
Club : The Comic Dandies
Position : Center Forward.
Cost : A cow pie

I've chosen Dan here for one reason only.
He's the strongest man in the world . Nuff said.

Name : Chewbacca
Club : The rebel alliance.
Position : Striker
Cost : I didn't understand what he said.

Bit of a sore looser is our Chewey. He has been chosen up front for his height, his superb positioning around the box & his ability to rip off the heads of the opposition.

So beat that you bunch of overpaid , blouse wearing so called professional sportsmen.
