Monday Musings

Some days the world is more interesting than others - well at least it appears that way:

  • England beat the banana capital this morning, ironically with a Beckham banana kick. There really is no one who can bend it like Beckham and I have to say I was pleased for the guy. Its great to see someone succeed at something where they have a special gift - he's been getting such a hiding in the UK press that it was good to see him come right - after all what else has he got to fall back on? OK I guess I asked for the inevitable comment...
  • The ultimate utility vehicle has to be the Rover soft top I saw in Panmure today. You wouldn't think you could get a washing machine in the back seat. But you can. Just take the top down and in she goes!
  • The otter from Auckland zoo is still loose! This is a more dripping drama (sorry I meant gripping) than the P addict of a few weeks back. But here's the cool thing - the very DOC worker responsible for capturing this wild beast, was the lucky recipient of a visit from the said furry friend just last week - he appeared in the guy's driveway! This is the start of an arch rivalry on the same level as Superman and Lex Luthor...or maybe Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny...Brian Tamaki and G. Beyer...

Maybe its just me?

Nice work on bullet point #3. Pity some of the other international news - see political decisions in Iraq - got less coverage as they didn't contain as much 'human interest'.

On bullet point #2, I agree that DB's free kick was pretty flash - though not nearly as good as MR's strike for ARG the day before but definitely a sign of class. A pity that once you have a 'reputation' anything even slightly less than that makes you worthy of public scorn.

Bananna Capital? - that sounds dangerously like a deogortory/racist remark...

Oh, and Jacob, I'm with you, more nudity in films! Um, well, actually what I mean to say is more female nudity in flims. Attractive females of course...

For many reasons, some complimentary and others not, Ecuador is referred to allegorically as a Banana Republic. The truth remains that Ecuador is the number one exporter of bananas worldwide and is said to produce some of the best tasting bananas.

nice use of the G to avoid any controversy by using either George or Georgina ;o)
