I got nothin’

Sorry to be so boring this week, folks. I’ve had a serious of work things and technology things and household things and things.

I need a little televisual therapy…

Dammit Uncle Badger!

You KNEW she’d bought all those surgical tools on the internet… you were supposed to keep an eye on her.

I love the image, stoatie. Whimsical and spooky both!

But now I gotta know:
What is the significance of “ket” please?

Thank God you have your yogurt machine, stoaty, because post Brexit there wont be any. Nor will there be milk for your coffee (you do drink it, dont you?) nor butter for your toast!

Bah. Television is so awful over here—I’ve given up on it. If I were stuck in the hospital, I’d need recorded books to listen to; watching TV would kill me, and what would they put on my death certificate then? Death by ennui? I could do with some retail therapy, though. Baby needs a new pair of shoes 😉

Ah, I see you’ve purchased one of our government technical design committee cats (model 7321.302.5e)
I was wondering when that would go into production, I’ve been out of that loop because I’m working with another committee to design a better JATO gliding Dachshuahua.

Just so you know, we’re ISO-9000 certified and we can reproduce that cat any time, on time, every time.
Along with the Basset Hound with the elephant’s trunk.

Or is it a gliding Chihuahund? Let me check the minutes from the last meeting. About half a normal bi-weekly meeting devolves into that argument, and the other half is usually taken up eating the donuts (doughnuts? – Engrish is hahd accolding to Wakattamujo-san)

The critter is vaguely JarJar Binkish, huh.

Thank you Ric Fan, for the audiobooks reminder. My current Kindle is slowly wearing out, but my next one will be able to play audiobooks. Husband and I listen to books on CD for road trips because he doesn’t like listening to AM radio the way I do, and I don’t care for his music list—so the books are an excellent compromise. I used to read aloud for us on road trips, but the CD are a nice treat.

Looks like a cross between a toad and a cat … Urk!

Stoaty—remember when you asked us if we (Americans) recalled learning or somehow “knowing” that petroleum was the result of dead/decaying dinosaurs? Scroll down to the last pix at this link. I thought of you first 🙂

Deborah: DL them, listen to them on your computer or burn them to a CD and listen to them when you drive. If your car has a usb port, you can put them on a thumb drive and plug it in.

I stole the image, Uncle Al, and “ket” was just a stupid way to say “cat”.

The confirmation is appreciated, Deborah HH, but I’m not sure if he’ll accept a meme as a definitive scientific source.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
