Yesterday I was most surprised by the demise of Tara Palmer Tompkinson, and least surprised by the outcome of the Article 50 notification vote.
How about you?
Most: a short film clip emerges of what is strongly believed to be Marcel Proust.
Least: the continuing train wreck that is UK politics.
Least: That a really good, heavy-duty belt sander is quite pricey.
Most: That if you inadvertently let go of it before it has completely stopped it will cheerfully rocket off across the floor and utterly destroy a mains socket on the other side of the room.
--Gee I wish I had one of those.
General Buck Turdgis in Dr. Strange Sawdust or How I learned to love the heavy duty belt sander.
Sadly no video Anchs, but I guess I could post a picture to farcebook of a sad-face kitten next to the dangling ring main.
thimo - you have got one of those. Back seat of the Mazda, masquerading as a copy of Cortazar's Axolotl. Tastes like chicken.
I hope the ring of mexican car thieves who stole the Mazda did not hurt themselves by using it carelessly...
Trump thinks (or rather thought) the electoral college vote rigging was phony when Obama won in 2012:
terrific idea for a thread. Hoping to contribute.
Contributing is least today, apart from getting up because I'd finished sleeping.
Most, my cold, which seemed to be almost over, yesterday, returning with vengeance, Sicilian style, today.
Least, my huffy colleague, who isn't speaking to me, after I took no notice of his efforts to belittle me, in front of audiences; and to give me orders (he's the same grade and doing a different job) passed me a note.
When I was having a break. It ordered me to do something, none of his businesses, which I'd done hours previously.
Most: that you can have a username like this.
Least: that Manchester United won.
Most - seeing my usually rather sedate and ladylike 59-year-old friend J having a go on a rope swing in the woods and letting out loud shouts of "Wheeeee!" and "Whoooo!"
Least - that our student sons, who hadn't seen us for a few weeks, didn't have much to say when we met them for lunch and sloped off back to do some "work" (possibly true in #1's case) as soon as was decently possible.
Most: Cressida Dick being appointed Met Commissioner.
Least: That Brexit wont change immigration levels.
Most. That a science teacher friend of mine is quite happy to lay aside his scientific concepts and attitude aside in quite a few situations.
Most. The Beeb's failure to make anything at all of being barred from Donny's Press Conference.
Most: that the weather forecast was wrong and it's worse than they said, meaning that we can't work, at present.
Least: that my peurile colleague hasn't spoken a word to me, after his tantrum yesterday, when he refused to tell me whether he'd produced some data, which I work on after him.
I questioned him calmly and politely, at which point, he put his headphones on, pointed at them and said, in a tone to have embarrassed the most spoiled, petulant teenager;
'I can't hear you, I have my headphones on, neurr!"
Most: watched an old episode of wotsisface's Good News where he met Brian Blessed. Apparently Brian went to the Arctic and a polar bear suddenly poked its head in his tent. Brian bellowed at it and thumped it, whereupon it about turned and high-tailed it. How cool is that?
And he apparently trained as a cosmonaut in his seventies. He's a legend.
