A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right.


Is that a Russian on that yacht? The Derwent, as seen from Alexandra Battery, Sandy Bay. January 2012.

Tuesday Q and A and I am already back at work after losing my week's break to the flue.

BAH!

This week it is The Battle of the Memes

1. When you buy a greetings card are the words or the picture more important to you?
I don't buy 'em!

2. Do you ever make gifts for people, if so what, or do you buy them?
I have been known to both make and buy gifts for people.

3. Are you going on holiday this year? If so, where?
We are headed to the Tasmanian Rivera, the sunny north-west coast!

4. What was the best party you've ever been to?
I have never been much of a party-person. Anything relaxed and laid back is more my scene.

5. If you are married, describe your wedding. If not, what would your ideal wedding be like?
Our wedding was nigh on THREE THOUSAND kilometres from home, with nobody else about to bother us. I'd say that's pretty ideal...

Something about wanting to make babies.

Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On.

Wilco's She's A Jar.

Juliette Binoche.

11. Which male celebrity do you think is attractive?
Friedrich Engels.

Happily married.

21. Ever have a near death experience?
Not that I am aware of.

22. Name an obvious quality about you?
I am not certain that I would be the person to ask. Maybe "playful".

23. What’s the name of a song stuck in your head right now?
Rather clich├ęd to say Adele's Rolling in the Deep.

24. Name a celebrity you would marry.
A wealthy, stupid one.

Always enjoy hearing you talk more about yourself Krispy. You're probably one of the most interesting people I've met in this existence.
Re "Rolling in the Deep" - I heard a great mashup track of that and one of its sources, Rolling Stones's Gimme Shelter. Terrific.

Every Tuesday Vince!

She's got a great set of pipes on her. I'm sure the bloke who dumped her is regretting it now.
