They didn't lock the bikes up in the bike racks near the front of the store, but decided to park and lock them in an unlit, unpopulated area away from the store. Hence, my $700 bike was stolen after they bought the $2 laser pointer.

I was not very happy when I learned of their exploits.

My son always asks me when I ask him what he thinks are obvious questions, "Do you think I'm stupid?"

This morning, I said, "You know when you ask me, 'Do you think I'm stupid?'" He didn't say anything.

I said, "Here's where it applies as a 'yes.'"


That's a sore one.

I got a text fairly late last night from my cousin's rehab center where's he's going back to after the hospital.

It's official - he has cirrhosis of the liver and can never drink again. If he does, he'll need a transplant and has to stay dry at least six mos before they'll even consider him for a liver.

I've known folks who are waiting for liver transplants. They're not easy to get and it can take awhile to get one.

Not so fast, I guess. My cousin is back in the hospital because he had increased levels of ammonia enzymes.

I recently had my 2-yearly health check, nothing nasty found I'm pleased to say. After the cardiovascular tests I was told that I'm as fit as the average 25-29 year-old (I'm 52), which really pleased me until I got to wondering just how unfit the average 25-29 year old probably is these days.

There was a time in the 1970s and early 1980s (before I met her) that Chip's mother and step-father lived in a long house on the Isle of Harris. Chip was fond of quoting the locals, in that peculiarly lilting and musical Hebridean accent: on such was, 'Och the lambs are dancing', referring to the spring-heeled frolics of very young lambs. I've seen it many times, but this is the first quarter-decent fist I've made of recording, although having Scrap yanking at the lead in my other hand, it's not as smooth as I would have liked...

A 29 year old still has 20 years to look ahead to 50 even if they're drinking litres of diet coke to wash down their 450 calorie burgers and fries and catch up in years - the body is way more forgiving at that age. I'd say you're still doing pretty well.

We have this woman whom I'll call Stella, which is her name so it fits, who has this very loud sing-song voice. Everyone can hear her in the cube farm I work in.

I told a co-worker yesterday that Stella missed her calling because her sing-song cadence would be great for children's stories audio books.

My co-worker asked me if I disliked children and asked why I would want to punish them that way.

Is that the way I actually come across? The reason I answered Markus with "Don't quit your day job," was because usually a joke has to have a basis in reality to at least be a little funny - you know, "It's funny because it's true."

I'm happy to laugh at myself, in fact I think I poke fun at myself all the time on here, but I don't get the connection.

My post was a joke containing several layers of comedy.
