One or two shortish items…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s combined food item and insult is – You biscuit bastard!…

Excuses for being late. No. 357.
I’m sorry I’m late, but I had to carefully adjust my line of perspective.

A single overheard remark:
‘But then Carla, it was a very close-knit choir…’

An observation:
A sign in the window of a local tanning shop – Cutting Edge Sunbeds! – Whoa!…

Oh, look, a new kind of vegetable is available in the supermarket, it’s a cross between kale and spouts, I see that they have named the things kalettes – me, I think I’d have called them krouts

When I’m visiting a big London gallery and I see someone sitting on a bench gazing in rapt contemplation at one of Mark Rothko’s big colour paintings I always like to walk across in front of them, give the work a cursory sideways glance and make some just about audible tutting noises as I pass… (MR)

Yes, I’m thinking of changing my name to Drew Ling-Beest.

Hey! What’s this?…
Oh, it’s an item of spam just flopped into my comments box – let’s see what it says. Ah, it seems to be from someone called FloydWer:
It really is a poor idea permit espresso sit on a popular burner right after making. Retaining the warmth on can cause your espresso to cook and can wreck its newly-brewed flavoring. Rather, disconnect your caffeine-producer or other home appliance, or transfer to a insulated cooking pot to maintain it hot.
Well, thank you FloydWer, I will keep your suggestion handy in case I ever decide to start drinking coffee – I think that you will be pleased to hear that I already have a (so far unused) popular burner. Thank you again for your input.

‘That woman – she’s a really good looker!’
‘Oh, is she a photographer, an artist of some kind? How could you tell? Of course, looking and careful observation are key elements in the visual arts, and…’
‘Just shut up…’

Today’s old recording that it might be very cool to like is Moonlight on Vermont by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band. (CB & TMB)

A single overheard remark:
‘I don’t know what I wanna do in my head Sandra…’

    Krouts! Ho ho ho! And have you tried them? They’re delicious. Best steamed. Mmn! We’ve been growing them for a few years, though always knew them as “flower sprouts”. The supermarket ones are nice too, though a bit pricey.
    But then me, I like Mark Rothko. I also like “Moonlight on Vermont”. I’m quite easily pleased really, unlike some curmudgeons I know ….

    These comments are so funny, Dave. I’m using “Biscuit Bastard” next time I need to say something profane.

    I’m always adjusting my line of perspective…but it doesn’t seem to get me anywhere. Perhaps I should cease and desist…
