Anything noteworthy happen to you today?


Around about 6:45 PM today the power went, at least in our street. It didn't come back on until 9:00PM. Now, I know a little over two hours isn't that long but when it happens just before you start organising dinner and the natural light is rapidly fading and one of your sons is desperate to finish some overdue assignment etc, etc, ... Anyway, we missed Earth Hour the other day, so we made up for it tonight. It's scary just how dependent we are on electricity.



Have the courage of your convictions.

Yeah. The same thing happened all over Victoria. I had officially my worst public transport experience ever, which is saying a lot. After waiting 40 minutes for a train from Clayton where my university is, one finally came but said on it (instead of its destination) "Data Version 8.1". The station master had no idea where this train was going. I got on it anyway. The driver made no announcement and all passengers didn't know where it was going either. It was the MYSTERY TRAIN.

I'm just realised i'm too tired to relate the rest of this story. Sorry...

We had a power failure just a few days ago, only for a few minutes. Sucked, but fortunately I was up already for my round.

Today I went to visit a friend and did a lot of stoopid things. I need sleep.

Found out this morning on the toilet that we were out of toilet paper. What a suprise that always is. Fortenately our host takes care of everything......... I must not forget to buy some new rolls, altough I think There is not much paper left in the shops after the disaster in Groningen stadium yesterday.

The soccer game groningen - Ajax should be played. After that game we should have known if our own PSV is the 2008 champion. But we had not taken into account that toiletpaper burns. :-P
Groningen Hooligans throw rolls of toiletpaper towards the grass as huge serpentines. Al the tribunes, and part of the field were covered in toiletpaper. One fool lighted that up and in no time the gras and pvc seats were burning in a cloud of smoke. The only fire extinguishers around were buckets of water for the first quarter of an hour.
It all ends up with - no game- 30 injured people some upto now hospitalised and a lot of confusion........

Sometimes its better that you are out of toilet paper
Awful movies about this on youtube (search arguments groningen ajax will lead to several)

Hit town today for B-day shopping.
PSV is not champion yet, but there are huge football-shape lampoons hanging around in town. Could be fun if they'd turn 2nd!

Sorry I cannot read this without my reading glasses, what were you saying?

No kidding
When I was 46 I could read anything small big and worse copies
when I was 47 I bought my first reading glasses ampl. 1
Now I'm using during the day ampl. 2 and in the evening ampl. 3
When I repair old tape junk I even use sometimes 2 glasses and a magnifier.

It is the price we have to pay.

I've had more eye problems than I can poke a stick at. I've been to the opthalmologists and optometrists and etc. hundreds of times I reckon. My eyesight is bad and getting worse, and i'm only 21. I have to wear two different types of glasses because there is no one lense that can do enough magic for me.

For some reason the glasses i have now get really dirty really easy and it's a complete bitch to clean them, and the cleaning liquid that came with just seems to make it worse.

I don't know BBP. Actually I do know. I remember the optometrist saying that glasses will work ok for a few more years, maybe ten years, and then i'll have to get surgery. I guess it will be laser surgery.

It makes me wonder about all those people in past centuries who had to stop doing tasks when their eyes went before glasses were available.

Life expectation was much shorter at that time
45 was a normal age for most people.
Glasses (lenses to approve sight) were used since 1250 in Europe and maybe before that in Arabia and China.

Good point, and only the people who could afford glasses would have been able to read anyway.

Fun! It's been ages since I last was in Paris. Shot some nice pics there too, of my favourite fountain (I always forget the name somehow).

Today the magazine with my picture rolled in! Scan coming up!

Ouch!
I hate injuring a foot.
Always worse than a hand somehow.
I can get a lot more done with one hand on two feet, than I can get done with two hands on only one foot.:duh:
Never been to Paris. Someday. Who knows, maybe next year./
