It's like you're trying to hurt me physically. 

Heaven forfend that I'm causing any kind of physical, intellectual or emotional discomfort.  Nay, pain.


Those of us who may toil in our gardens in our leisure time can cease worrying about what they look like, and relax in the knowledge that a woman in the Australian state of Tasmania has won a competition to find the world's ugliest lawn.

I'm quite taken with this cover of the song.


And what was the trigger, you ask?

loved that cover of SOS. Really nice. Better than the original, perhaps. They’ve stripped it down and you can hear how very clever the guitar changes and playing are. 


Interesting, historical work.

It contains a few, unfortunate headings, though.

I had the same question; A hour??? 


That's how you'd say/write it after an hour of babies crying?  Or 5-10 minutes?

That's not an reaction I'd have. 


I was speaking recently to an old engineering friend of mine and asked what he was working on these days.

He replied that he was working on the "aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, steel and aluminium under a constrained environment."

I was very impressed by that until I learned, after a few more questions, that what he was actually doing was washing dishes with hot water under his wife's supervision.

So much for engineering.

Moving on to chemistry.

I’ve just finished writing a book on penguins.

In hindsight it would have been much easier to write it on paper.

There was no fear of frostbite, as these were temperate climate penguins which inhabit southern Australia.

The main problem I had was holding them still while I was writing.  

They tended to wriggle and squirm a lot, which led to my writing being very squiggly.  There was much gentle swearing and cursing going on at the time.   So much so that my penmanship is now recognised as cursive script.


There’s something fishy-smelling about this novel penguin novella.
