A blackbird landed on the tree outside my office window this morning and vigorously whirled his tail feathers in my direction for several minutes. A moment ago he returned, perched on the outer window ledge and stared at me through the window with his small black eye, rimmed with orange, then hopped on to the tree and sang jubilantly before flying away.
I?m beginning to wonder if I know him from somewhere.

I once knew a blackbird. Name of Fred.

Nice guy, but messy eater. He could not keep his food on the table. He had to keep flying off and eating it in weird corners.

Still, nice guy.

Yay! It's Friday! Friday means you can eat some cake to celebrate the end of the week (so does monday, for the opposite reason)

It got up to 10 million before they pulled it. I happened to be lucky enough to be looking at the page as it was pulled

I saw the first page, clicked on the bid history which went to an invalid page, and then returned to find the auction was invalid

The worst point was as soon as I saw the first page I emailed the link out to people at work, and then almost immediately had to send out another saying it had been pulled

The grass on my lawn has got very long. When I went into my garden yesterday to retrieve my unicycle from the shed I spied out of the corner of my eye my neighbours tabby cat staring at me from deep within the grass.
Given my recent adventures and the general dazed state with which I was approaching the morning I immediately thought it was a lion stalking me and ran away.
(ok, so cats are smaller than lions, but I assumed it was further away)

You mean they didn't train you to bop them firmly on the nose with a rolled-up newspaper whilst loudly saying 'NO!'?

That's a cool website you've got there! What's the story of Shevy's poem? Did she write it while she was out there or what? It was cool, whatever the reason...

Also - good to know you survived the rhino. Scary.

Cheers bud, I promised everyone I'd make a place to share our pics and memories and stuff.


What's the story of Shevy's poem?


We did a lecture on astronomy and were learning about an astrological feature near the Southern Cross called the Box of Jewels and it inspired her. Shevy was by far the most artsy one of the group, I was quite impressed really

Aren't all thoughts sudden



It depends how you look at it. In one sense, yes you are correct. However in another sense you're subconcious will mull away on things and twist and turn them around, then when it's reached a conclusion it will present them to you, and you'll assume you've just thought of it. In reality though you've just stopped thinking about it.

Rather more interestingly, despite this thread being based on randomness, i has managed to form itself into an almost normal thread with a couple of conversations happening at once. I wonder if that means that all thread's converge. That would mean that there is the thread of convergence. An ideal thread that we are all trying to create.

Curious.

Much as i've enjoyed the conversations, I'm a bit saddened that the thread has resolved itself in that way. I liked the random nature of reading people's sudden thoughts.

I'm going to go and attach my Barbie bell to my bike to cheer myself up. Sadly it only goes ding, I was hoping for something, well, pinker.

It's thursday. It's eight fifty five. the window is open. i can hear birds singing. i can see aerials clouds trees sky bluebells a bench a shed. i'm bored. earlier on i was so bored i took a photograph of my right foot with my phone, in a vain attempt to amuse myself.

it's quite difficult to record random thoughts. they keep wanting to go in a sensible direction.

i once read an article about a man who for an entire month wrote down every single thought he had in this notebook he carried around with him everywhere (i think he was german...), and he said that it really helped him & that everyone should do this at least once in their life because it would help them to clarify what they really thought about things.

hmmm, it does sound a bit arduous though.

Why do I get the feeling that the majority of the notebook was full of "I should write something in my notebook"!

I went to a beer festival last night and now I have a shiny new beer mat with my name on it. It's amazing how the smallest things can brighten your entire day isn't it?

I tracked down the article about the somewhat crazy notebook man, Lion Kimbro: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/3857621.stm

As much as I love notebooks, I doubt I would have the self-discipline to do this (document ALL my thoughts) for longer than a day, and I suspect that by the end of it I wld be pretty sick of my thoughts (what if you discovered your thoughts were actually quite banal? what if you discovered that 25% of the time you were thinking about ... what to have for your lunch?!) What I'd really like is a print-out from my brain every now and again .... but when would I find the time to re-read it (especially now the new series of Lost and Big Brother are on TV!)?

I find that my brain defaults to a radio station when I'm not concentrating. I'd end up with a notebook full of 'the wheels on the bus go round and round and shine jesus shine and have mercy have mercy have mercy on me, jolene, jolene, jolene, jolene, I need some fine wine, and you, you need to be nicer' etc.

25% of my time is spent thinking about what I'll have for lunch, 25% about what I'll have for breakfast and 48% about what I'll have for dinner. The other 2% is filled with unimportant things like work...

Huh, now I could be wrong, but it seems like there's only 2% of your brain that Deanery can fit into. And that's what you consider to be the unimportant stuff. Poor Deanery...

"patience of love you ain't so tough jolene jolene jolene joleee-heeene come fill my little world right up right up right up please don't take him even though you can on a plane and show me spain or somewhere jolene jolene jolene joleee-heeene I'm begging with you but in reality come fill my little jolene jolene....."

Thanks a BUNCH for that.
