30 Rock Rocks!

Jack - Lemon, what tragedy happened in your life that you insist upon punishing yourself with all this... mediocrity?

Lemon - What? Cause I'm eating a turkey sub?

Jack - Your turkey sub, your clothes, the fact that a woman of your resources and position lives like some boxcar hobo. Or maybe it's the fact that while I'm saying all this you have a piece of lettuce stuck in your hair.

Promises, Promises

There’s nothing quite like a summer storm to round off a hot and humid day – the cooling breeze, the slow build up of cloud, the transformation of day to veritable night, the gentle rumble of thunder and the freaky flash of lightning as nature asserts her authority.

Granted, no one wants to experience destructive winds or flooding rains on a regular basis, but I’ve been feeling a bit let down by the weather of late.

Let’s start with the temperature. Ridiculous. One day it’s too hot, the next too cold and then there's one that’s just right thrown in for good measure. Not that I’m complaining – there are worse fates weather wise. It’s certainly keeping us guessing.

As for those promised storms – most mediocre. They’ve come to nothing in my neck of the woods. A wee drop of rain, the odd rumble and an occasion blanket of lightning. Not that I’m after one of those “get the insurance policy details ready” type storms, but how about a decent light show and some soaking rain. Is that too much to ask? Perhaps. One must always be grateful, not only for what one is given, but also for what one is spared I suppose.

May the rain fall lightly on all your fields.

Round the Bend

People driving on your hammer when you’re doing the speed limit – mediocre
Letting them fly past you while spying a speed camera ahead – priceless

People not indicating and cutting you off in traffic (they’re called indicators people, not reflectors) – mediocre
People giving you a thank you wave – priceless

The price of petrol – mediocre
Walking or riding a bike – priceless...but mostly a lot more effort

Me trying to reverse park – mediocre
People who successfully reverse park in one go – bloody annoying

Just a Moment

All in a moment,
The world stood still.
Life sparkled and glistened
On each drop of water,
In each grain of sand.
Peace prevailed and
Calm was caught on
The breath of air that
Tentatively hovered
In the fading light of day.
All entities relaxed in harmony,
All in a moment.
