The Exponential Time Curve of DIY, Lists & Zombies
So what did I do today well not a lot I did manage to clean up the last window in the Kitchen, which has been lingering about as a job to do for some time now. I have over time come to realize that working on the house you actually live in has its own issues that need to be taken into account. One of the more important of these is the completion of the task, OK it sounds dead easy, but it is not. You see you start off all keen and enthusiastic and the job skips along like a kangaroo chasing a porcupine on a skateboard, but the nearer you get to completion the slower you work. Eventually you will come to a grinding halt although it can be difficult to judge at what point this will happen; with luck it will be with something tiny left to do that folk will not notice.
Now some of you will be thinking OOOOoooooo no I would never do that, but anyone who does any DIY on their own home, which here in
is loads of folk will know this is a universal truth. I am sure that there is a wise old Chinese
saying from back in time that says something like. . . . . No man should ever
completely finish working on his own home if he wishes to remain happy. .
. It is a wise if sexist saying, but
back then old Chinese sayings could be a bit like that, lets face it political
correctness is not something history is abundant in. Britain
However in respect to completing the work in the kitchen this was the last awkward little job to get done and it is all chilled from now on with only a few tiny wafer thin bits left to do which based on the Exponential Time Curve of DIY (that’s Do It Yourself if this is a term not used outside of Britain). So in a mere 15 years it will all be done. However there are loads of other jobs to do I have a list which was given to myself and our friendly builder Chris. Although Chris the friendly builder was given his own list by his wife so he is a bit busy at present, well up to the point he has almost finished then he will be back. We have a project to start in the garden building a Welsh Chapel lookalike Summerhouse and bolthole to escape from passing Zombies. Zombies avoid Welsh Chapels because they will say. . . It is full of Hymn. . . . . HA HAH ahah ah ah a ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha hah ah a hah
Talking of which I still have to write my all new Halloween tale of an old witch from a strange Kingdom where celebrating Halloween was banned until one year when . . . . . . OK that is enough of a hint for now. . . . . Exciting isn’t it . . . AH DAMN
And a bit of Poetry to keep you happy
The strange world of twitter
Is full of bits of litter
Jumbled words in a few short lines
From the jumbled heads of jumbled minds
Where has the Tarra-gone
It’s been missing for some Thyme
It ran off to Coriander
Having heard the Garlic had been crushed
And the Chives all chopped up Fine.
