Starling Fixation

Since buying my new camera I've had a bit of a Starling fixation.
Here's my latest offering.
This one was eating some of my home made (sad I know) fat balls.

Electric Cables Again

More proof tonight in my house has emerged that 'Electric Cables are Alive' (and working against me).

I opened up the bag to get my beard trimmer out and the cable had actually tied itself into a knot!

Yes a perfect knot - and pulled tight at that.

Alive. Proof.

Winter Starlings and Chimney Pots

Since I got my new toy (see two posts ago) I seem to be getting a bit of an obsession with Starlings of all things.
Here's my latest offering, hope you like it...more to follow I fear.

The Slide of Life

I got to thinking today that life is like a big slide, a great big slide that you slide down.
It's a huge slide that is so big that it takes years to slide to the bottom, but at the bottom are spikes, and when you hit the spikes you die.
You can't get away from it, you can't get off the slide and you will hit the spikes and die.
Enjoy the ride I suppose.

New Toy

Bought a new toy, a Pentax KM digital SLR camera.
This is one of my first 'efforts'.

Starling Against a Winters' Sky.

TV Sport Fans, and Snotty Footballers

Two things came to my mind whilst watching sport on TV today.

One: Very annoying is when sports fans (rugby today actually) are shown in close up by the TV cameras they always immediately realise what's happening (watch the bloody pitch not the big screen) and start waving and flapping madly.

I say to the TV companies 'stop showing fans in close up to avoid this constant annoyance to the viewing public', and to the fans who flap and wave I say 'stop it you fucking idiots!'

What if the players did it as well?!

Two: Why is it that seemingly every time a footballer is shown on TV in a close up shot he invariably at that precise moment empties his nose? I wait for it every time and it always seems to happen!

It must be nice for them all slipping about in snot.

Snow Killjoys

I for one love the snow and have really enjoyed the recent wintry weather.

But the snow brings out the killjoys in society I'm afraid, we all know them, they say when it's snowing such things as 'it's not sticking' and 'it's turning to rain'.

Electric Cables Are Alive!

I took my laptop out of it's case last night and the tangle that the charger cable and mouse cable had got into led me to believe that the only possible explanation for the insane and extremely intricate tangle that presented itself to me was the fact that these electric cables are actually alive and tangling themselves on purpose.

They couldn't get tangled like that by accident just sitting there surely. They weren't tangled when I put them away so they must be alive!
