Oddly enough I experienced none of the angst this year that I did the last few years on the same day. I think it’s that this year I know I really am doing nothing whereas before I was under the illusion I was doing something because I spending a few hours a week at a ‘job’. I’ve been thinking of different jobs I could do, like recording those in-shop messages that come over the intercom saying, “store security to department 3”, and then a minute later [more urgently] “Security, department 3″. Or I could roam around eliminating wrongly placed apostrophes from signboards and other public places. I’d need a govt grant for that. I’ve noticed via Twitter that pretty much _all_ the V8 supercar drivers are apostrophe abusers but Lewis Hamilton, of F1 fame, knows well how to place the ‘stroph.
This link is already on the <a href=”http://previous.delicious.com/yaksox”>delicious feed</a> (right) but I am quite inspired by <a href=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22766029″>this 15thC. boy</a> and his diligence in documenting his own fashion sense. I may do the same since I got some clothes for my birthday.
Also I wanted to show and tell my piggy plate. I got it as part of a set of four at a garage sale. The others are sheep, cow and chicken. Piggy is the stand out, partly because he is wearing a napkin as if he is about to have a meal rather than be the meal as the collection would suggest. They were made in Indo-nesia.
