For something that didn't last very long, it sure did produce a lot of busywork.

SO MUCH SO, that I must beg for a volunteer to handle Thursday Three duties for tomorrow! And remember, no fair volunteering other people, unless you get their permission.

UPDATE: Seeing as how I have offered you no entertainment today, I decided it would be best if I went and stole this for your enjoyment: "Just picture a 30-something brunette woman in underwear roaring around the front yard brandishing a toddler size 12 shoe at a bounding, barking mutt, followed by a short brown blur of growling fur and teeth at 4:30 in the morning..."

Needless to say, I imagine such things on a regular basis.

Isn't it usually a red head?

Unless it's a blonde or a brunette.

I offer my services for Thursday Three.

It is already Thursday here, so I am in the mood; and if I post later today, you lot will all be in bed (I don't mean together), and when you wake up you can answer the questions on your Thursday.

HOORAY!! We is saved!! Thank you so much, Kitchen Hand. We'll be sure to make the trek when we get all woken up. And I apologise (and note that I even used an Ess instead of a Zed) for saying you Aussies are show-offs for having robot dogs and flying cars. The Land of Tomorrow really IS spectacular!

We have law-enforcing crocodiles too. (See my comment at Ms Janis Gore's blog.)

I'll post the Thursday questions here a little later.

Thursday Three Questions:

1) Here, it is the first day of autumn - Wednesday 1st of March. However, in some parts of the world, the new seasons do not arrive until the 19th of the month, or later; due to large cattle breeds called solstices and equinoxes that issue huge amounts of methane, which increases global warming and makes the seasons run late. Question: what is your favourite season, and why?

2) When you started your weblog, did you deliberate over whether to choose a nom-de-blog or use your real identity? What swayed you either way?

3) Discussing religion, politics or sex has always been impolite at cocktail parties, because of the risk of embarrassing face-to-face arguments. However, this is not a cocktail party, but a blog. And since the whole point of a blog is to have robust discussions, make a comment on the first thing that comes to your mind about religion, politics or sex. Pour yourself a martini first, if it helps. Don't forget the olive.

Change that first question to Thursday 1st March, not Wednesday 1st March.

Thank you once again, Man of the Future!
