A: "You should do the can can - you see like this - kick, kick kick [demonstrating high can can kicks against Ninja] "Good idea. Into the shower".
I was at the local grocer's buying some fruit and vegetables for dinner. The owner of the shop is a middle aged Greek man who once told me that he lives about 30km away, in middle suburbia. He put a bunch of green grapes on the scales - they were expensive. "American" he said. "What do you think of America?"
I've been meaning to write about Lotlot for awhile, as I've been aware of hardly mentioning her since she recovered from her near-death illness in January. Now she's sick again, though not quite as bad as then.

I'm sure I've seen references in the media to Jodie Foster as a "single mother", though I couldn't say how recent those were. But it seems her two sons are not just hers - there has been a coming out of sorts, ie. her two sons revealed as having two mothers.
Tasmania: it was good to be away from home and even though we had a television in most places we stayed, so that we kept in touch with the news in a rudimentary fashion, it was a relief to be away from the electronic media. It was good to be reading novels and out in the fresh (very fresh) air most of the day, talking and thinking. As soon as I returned to computer-use, various muscular-skeletal problems I've had recently, returned. I'd like to work out how to restrict computer use in my daily life - I'll have to practise some tough parenting on myself!
