Thirteen things that set my brain off on a tangent yesterday

  1. Thieves steal 250,000 Flake bars: The police are looking for a gang of attractive, long haired women moving in slow motion. The gang were heard chanting about the quality of the chocolate at the scene. A senual, warm rain shower followed the gang as they made their escape until they passed under a waterfall where the trail goes cold. Police refuse to confirm all CCTV footage of the crime has been affected by a technical fault so it is in soft focus. A dead lizard was found at the scene.
  2. wxPython in Action: Arrived from Amazon on Wednesday. Swishier interfaces on my python scripts as soon as I’ve digested it.
  3. Blogging: When I should be doing something more useful instead.
  4. Marrion Raven’s music: Here set as support at Meat Loaf at the MEN on Saturday night was great.
  5. Nottingham Forest: Will they get promotion in the play off this year or spend another year in the first division?
  6. Guardian Great speeches:
    I picked a few of these up in the paper but missed most of them so being able to read them online is great.
  7. Darwin’s Letters: Not just evolution but his correspondence from the age of 12.
  8. TT and WW: Need I say more?
  9. Ms Mira Muffet: Who suddenly turned out to have an interesting story all of her own in my Fairy Tale Noir. She was supposed to be a bit player in the story. Bo Peep, the Pied Piper, the Spider, a refuge ginger bread maker and Jo, a taxi driver, all tried to make a bid for fame but Ms Muffet is the one with the real drive.
  10. gatineau rumours: Microsoft planning Google Analytics competitor
  11. TV: CSI, New Tricks, ER, Hustle, Doctor Who and Great British Menu.
  12. Vue: Sometime I just get an idea and want to try it out to see what kind of picture I create.
  13. Raymond Chandler: I’m enjoying The Long Goodbye at the moment.

Busy mind! There are certainly things in your list that set my brain off. :-)
Thanks for visiting my detective TT. Enjoy Marlowe!

I caught Hustle twice (by accident) and really enjoyed it. But now I can't find it in my tv listings... Damn!

Malinda777 Friday, May 18th, 2007

Obviously, Ms. Muffet is NOT just sitting around on her tuffet...she's making the powerplay. Cute list.

Fence Thursday, May 17th, 2007

Thanks for the link to the Great Speeches, looks like some interesting reading ahead.

As for the flake thiefs, I wonder are they the same chocoholics who stole those creme eggs a while back.

Happy T13
