This morning I was very stiff and sore and couldn't move my right arm and shoulder properly. Also couldn't drive or work, so I puttered around the office doing not much of anything really.
More painkillers and Voltaren gel before bed tonight and hopefully I'll be better in the morning.
Colour me unimpressed.
No, it's not like you going to a London restaurant to eat three nights a week then wanting a stake in the place.
The proper analogy is that you own the restaurant and it is the chef and kitchen staff, who actually produce the food, who want a stake in the restaurant - which is currently run solely for the benefit of a megalomaniacal dwarf who charges the customers an absolute motza to eat there.
Yes, the waiters are the best in the world at what they do and the customers don't have any other option but to come to your restaurant if they want to see these waiters perform to the best of their ability. But that doesn't mean that someone else may not want to buy you out - or at least get a stake in your exclusive place.
Now that's an analogy, Bernie, that's an awful lot closer to the real situation.
Mark qualified 18th due to no KERS(1) and hard tyres - which had the unintended consequence of leaving him with 3 sets of brand-new soft tyres for the race (not having wasted any in Q2 or Q3). A full-on incredibly balls'n'all drive - still with no KERS and a 3-stop strategy - saw him finish 3rd and on the podium for the first time this year. He's now 4th in the championshiop standings and only 1 point behind Jenson Button.
I still don't like KERS and I'm definitely against the DRS(2) as well. But this does seem to be shaping up to be a very interesting year in F1 for all that.
1 - Kinetic Energy Recovery System: stores the energy from braking in a battery type thingy and it can thern be accessed by the driver pushing a button - gives them a sudden boost of about 80bhp.
2 - Drag Reduction System: a flap opens up in the rear wing allowing the car's aerodynamics to overcome drag from following someone closely, supposed to assist with overtaking.
No Internet at home because the Telstra tech stuffed up. So I'm giving the lj app a try
Have the body and one sleeve of Samantha's school hoodie done. Second sleeve started then it's put it all together for the raglans and hood. Just like the one I did for mmegaera but with a v-neck and hood instead of crew neck. Getting quite cool now so I'm trying to get it finished ASAP.

A quote from Herself. I almost fell off my chair laughing so hard and had to wipe down the monitor!
ETA: We went out this morning looking - secondhand freezers are rarer than rocking horse poop. Ended up in Hardly Normal's bargain basement and got a "second" Fisher & Paykel chest freezer for $399 down from $649. It's only 220 litres as opposed to the 300 litre upright that died but I guess that means we won't be able to stuff it full of things and forget about them. Fortunately I had a bit of space on one of the credit cards.
A small donation will help to see them on their way to a lifetime's dream. If you can, it would be great for our NZ cousins. And maybe boost the signal further?
