Let me tell you about my groin.

I’ve been working on it, mostly by sitting on the floor. Cross-legged. It’s another crazy old man mobility hack I read about somewhere or heard on a podcast or something.

Apparently, kids do it all the time, but after kindy we get out of the habit. By the time you’re out of school you there’s a fair chance you’ll never sit cross-legged on the floor again. Not even for cones. (Kind of difficult to lean over the bucket, from memory).

I want to watch Seven Kings Must Die but I don’t want to start watching until I know with one thousand per cent certainty that I can enjoy it without interruption.

I remember the trailer for the original Dead Island being utterly fucking harrowing. I’m not gonna embed it here or even link to it. If you’re looking for that sort of emotional damage I’m sure you can find the search box at YouTube.

Had to run down to the post office at lunch to renew my PO Box. I ‘d been getting a lot of emails from Aussie Post telling me that time was running out, and I needed to renew. But… I also get a lot of scam emails and texts, supposedly from Australia Post, all of them demanding I cough up my credit card number.

If you have to explain a joke...

April 18, 2023 - 09:38 -- Admin

… it probably wasn’t funny. But those of us who make a buck from writing jokes do sort of need to understand them, and that sometimes means being able to explain them to ourselves.

I had a moment of clarty this morning, on my walk, when for no reason at all I remembered how much I enjoyed the ‘Ralph and Sam’ cartoons as a kid.

No need to explain them. This will do.
