103: Odds and Ends

In Season 1 on December 22, 2010 at 5:07 pm

After another morning at work, I’m too tired to come up with anything new. So I thought I’d post some odds and ends that I had on my phone. From fleeting thoughts to curious observations, recorded whenever it is socially appropriate for me to pull out my phone.

There are two reasons they don’t offer free to air tv on aeroplanes. One, it would seem unfair to charge passengers for it. And two, it would mean that you could get channel 7, so you don’t miss the weekly screening of air crash investigations, which just happens to be doing a special on the carrier you chose to fly with.

There is a tv set up at work, so that we can keep an eye on the cricket. And on slow days I like to come up with, what just isn’t cricket.

Soft balls, it’s just not cricket.

Summer is kind of here. While it has been raining for much of it so far, it has been warm enough for snakes and spiders to wake up again. Which got me thinking, that was one thing I really liked about New Zealand, the only way for a spider to kill you in NZ is for you to get too scared, fall over and hit your head with enough force in the right spot.

Well I think that is enough for today. Hopefully it was entertaining enough for you to keep reading to the end (and still be interested), because obviously you did if you got this far. Unless you are one of the people who skips to the end just to find out what happens. Well, Dumbledore dies. I hope you’re happy. Can you tell I haven’t read the 7th book yet?

  1. […] there is again no time to come up with original material. So this is the sequel to yesterdays Odds and Ends, with even more odds and ends. Going beyond the realms of my phone, I found material in old […]
