More events of unimportance

I have been rather lazy today, although this morning I did go and see the doc who reckons I am still sane but my joints are rubbish and tells me I will never run the 100 metres in less that 10 seconds ever again which is good news. Then my plans to go outside were sort of scuppered by drizzle and a grey sky, which is quite a contrast to last night when the sky here was crystal clear for the Meteor shower. It was very impressive although shouting there’s one does not work because it takes too long to say even if you try and say it very very fast or just say T O or even just T. Shouting just T is not a good idea either as voices in the dark started shouting For good sake get him a cup of Tea we are trying to sleep. . . .  



So back to today, I attached a new light fitting to the ceiling in the end in order to be productive and then I decided to use the computer to tweak my artists impression of a meteor shower. Mr Jones said he did not watch the meteor shower as it was in fact a cunning distraction tactic used by aliens to distract the public and that we need to watch The Day of the Triffids, I did a rather good re-enactment of that film once so I can understand his point.

Anyway I have some arty things I need to do so I may vanish off now and do the arty things of which I am sort of briefly passing over in a non descriptive veil of vagueness in order to imply mystery and excitement. It is an interesting fact that us humans always think that the thing we cant see or get too or have is far more interesting and exciting than they really are, although in this particular case that is not true as it is far more interesting and exciting than you think it is (I think).


Ooooo just as a small passing point I dreamt we had twelve cats last night; I know this because I woke up thinking this lot is going to cost a fortune to feed. I just hope Zombie defence systems work on cats although dad says they don’t and I will probably turn into a Zombie Cat and eat the brains of small rodents……..

  1. If you had a space based meteor detector it could send a message to a box right before the meteor, announcing audibly,
    "There Will Be One!"

    1. Most of the time I would think that twelve cats is thirteen too many. Of course a catophile might hear that sentence and think I meant 1,302 and 12 and do something with those two numbers. Probably the only thing good about the year 1302 for cats is that there were probably more tigers back then and if you were a human there was a stronger chance of a tiger jumping on your back.

    2. I agree about the tigers, but there were less domestic cats, so the answer is domestic tigers.

      I will get one of those meteor detectors for next year.

  2. I once had a meteor shower but ended up getting dirtier rather than cleaner. Do not buy this product.

  3. I love that picture, it's awesome. Twelve is a lot of cats to have, I struggle with my two.

    1. We also have two and I agree that is enough, although we did have seven several years ago. I just hope this is one dream that does not happen
