Hello! Is there anybody there?
Cold damp night in Kerkeri, I have lit the fire.
I am home alone.
BB is having fun in Auckland.
Well, I hope he is, as he has had a tough week.
It's been busy for me too.

Hi FFM. Just arriving on the scene. Will check for clues.

mojo said...

Hi all ... & again a sense of emptiness descends, and nay a clue to be found.
I must say that I am impressed that classical poetry is still to be found in the home paddock though, quite lovely.

Madeleine said...

I'm here! Feeling the cold too alas!

mojo said...

59F (15c) here, & feels pretty warm ... no home fire, no jersey, just nice.

Got the fire going here in Auckland, although it's not super cold. It's just more...comfortable...with it.
Looks like the fine weather has gone for the moment.

Madeleine said...

We're out of gas and are too cheap to get more so its red wine and blankets to the rescue.

Madeleine said...

Well that's my excuse anyway....

Madeleine said...

Let's get the conversation going... turn your head to the left and name the first colour you notice. Turn to the right and name the first electrical item you notice. Then list what you drinking and what you are eating and what you think your next blog post will be about.

Madeleine said...

Lime green.
Playstation.
Diet Coke (figured I needed a break after 3 red wines).
Allens Kool Mints.
9/11 and the left's blindness to the threat of Islam because of their anti-american ideology and the way they view religion.

Matt said...

Beige
Printer
Diet Coke (Madeleine drank all the red wine)
Kool Mints
Part II of my Sunday Study on Augustine on Homicide.

Ozy Mandias said...

drinking water and eating toast
next blog post: my skinny white legs

mojo said...

You could just post the picks Oz & prompt for creative descriptors & potential uses.

Madeleine said...

Very good - the lazy post-modern bloggers post - put up an image and let the readers interpret it!

mojo said...

You are far more harsh than I Madeleine ... have you already been privy to them legs?

Madeleine said...

Whilst I have met Ozy I confess to not looking at his legs.

Ozy Mandias said...

I could put forward a picture but the sight of my hairy white legs would have you all in fits of laughter. My wife thinks I have chicken legs!!

Madeleine said...

I think most of us coming out of winter have a case of white chicken legs.

mojo said...

madeleine ... wives are pretty discriminating creatures ... & this characteristic may be what she finds most endearing about poor Oz ... and you have now made it common ... oh dear.

Madeleine said...

I'm not sure how the chicken legs could compete with the citrus peel hair... LOL

Where are NZ Conservative tonight one wonders...? Zen went off on his clue hunt and failed to return.

ZenTiger said...

Internet access problems, combined with discovering Futurama Series 4.

Umm, Blue, Fridge. Drinking Water, finished food a long time ago and my next post might be about Mojo's last post.

Madeleine said...

What was Mojo's last post?

(Mojo's profile is not publicly available so I don't know where he/she blogs)

ZenTiger said...

And only an hour after the last comment...you couldn't do better if you rang an outsourced help desk.

Ring 0800-Blog-Ideas.

Yes, we are pleased to being offering good ideas for the contents of your blog.

Oh, hi Madeline. Still up and about? Mojo is on the friends sidebar under "Wine Enhanced ..."

He made an interesting observation that one of the reasons NZ'ers are considered to be increasingly turning to the turps is because various studies use (loosely speaking) the concept of a "standard drink" to sum the amount of alcohol we consume, and note that it is increasing.

Or is it? As Mojo points out:

Standard drink
In New Zealand, a standard drink is defined as the amount of beverage that contains 10 grams (or 12.67 millilitres) of absolute (pure) alcohol (ALAC 2004).

This definition of a standard drink differs from the definition used in the previous national surveys on alcohol use in New Zealand (Habgood et al 2001; Wyllie et al 1996), where a standard drink referred to 15 grams of absolute alcohol.

Bon soir, bon nuit. Oh as they say in Rotorua, "My name's Goff and I'm off"

Lucia Maria said...

Morning everyone!

Sorry I wasn't around last night, I went to bed really early just for a rest (at 8:30pm), and then didn't get up again until the morning. On the the bright side, I am wide awake and perky right now. Getting a reasonable amount of sleep is amazing. I should do it more often. Of course, that would mean we would have to lock our kitten outside for the night - she's causing havoc right now with sleep.
