Conscious that I sometimes share material on other platforms that never makes “the cut” here on my blog, I will start sharing a few bits and pieces here also. These are the tweets, posts, and observations that still seem relevant at the end of each month. Lots of ephemera, but hopefully still quite entertaining.
November 3 : Ahead of my NBN installation, I dragged out my old “home phone” tonight. Still, I did messenger video calls with friends tonight. I should just divert the number to my mobile, right?
November 4 : Amanda Vanstone made me laugh with her comment “”The sad thing, I think, is that we have got two guys standing as president, probably both of whom would have to do a test to get a driver’s licence in Australia,” (About ABC TV’s US Election Coverage)
November 25 : Since connecting to the NBN, I have a home phone again. In the week since installation, I’ve had one family call, and every other call (maybe 10) has been a scam call. My number is unlisted, but clearly someone has had it before.
November 27 : Have any journos done the Santa Photos story yet? It’s almost December. COVID-19 distancing with Santa. Need to book photos, and most bookings are full, I hear. Photoshop an option? Lots of parents doing it themselves. A good story, and good talkback.
Air fares, as so many other things need to be sensibly priced and value for money, not absurdly cheap.
Charlie Farrago who my partner once worked with sat in the same seat at the same table at the Balaclava Hotel each evening for three decades. While there were flowers on the table when he died, there wasn’t a portrait.
More nuisance calls come to our rarely used landline than our mobiles.
That Vandstone quote is funny, as is the Clinton and Obama cartoon.
5MV? Murray Valley?
Macca this morning wishing people Merry Christmas in November was nauseating.
The Dorrie Evans thing. I have done similar about the usefulness of one of our bridges built in the 70s, a year or so before the young carpet layer was born.
Is that a young photo of hair dye man? Very much Death in Venice.
I think we are wanting Christmas to come early and then we will soon be past the awful 2020 and into the New Year.
