“Release the Geese” – quoted on Doctor Who Confidential on ABC1 last night.


Speaking of the ABC, ABC2 had a special on Lovecraft featuring input from my favourite author Neil Gaiman. http://www.mousecircus.com/ (children) and http://www.neilgaiman.com/ (adults).

Last night I dreamed I was having a long conversation with Art Garfunkel. Later I dreamed it was my second last day at work and I had cut down a tree which caused someone’s computer program to fail because it used something in the treetop to determine where the program was being run, so I had to try and find the help desk, explain what I had done, and leave it up to them to resolve it. I never did find the help dek in the maze of corridors…. Ah, dreams are more real than life sometimes. I suppose this was stimulated by the very good Doctor Who episode, featuring an intelligent and complex storyline, for a change for this series…

Good weather for geese, the May rainfall in our backyard was 85mm so far, most of this in the last couple of days.

Geese you are released for two weeks before I round you up again.
