Uninteresting Trivial Facts

Came across a new (for me) word last week, zugzwan, in Headhunters, a Joe Nesbo book. I'm now reading an Ian Rankin book, Blood Hunt and it's cropped up again.

It also comes up in an episode or maybe 2 of Criminal Minds

I am having my brake pads changed tomorrow.

 

What about the ones on your car though?

I am watching all the original planet of the apes films in order at the moment on DVD.

Oh, some people leave themselves so open.

I'm sat in New York eating a Five Guys bacon Cheeseburger (with grilled mushrooms and green peppers).  Do I know how to party?

It's chucking down and windy in the Calder Valley.

 

There's some snow on the tops.

If Scooby Doo was real life, the #1 crime in America would be dressing up as a ghost.

On the bright side, if Scooby Doo was real, the rate of unsolved crime in America would be 0%

Relative to the two posts above. I've just started a new job and it is one of the most relaxed and convivial places I've ever worked. Makes a pleasant change.

I sold my car yesterday and I will also collect a suitcase today.

I don't think a suitcase will go as fast as a car. I may be wrong, having lived in London for 20 years sometimes it feel quicker to post yourself somewhere, rather than drive.

A miracle happened at Heathrow Terminal 3.  10 min walk from plane to border checks.  No queue at all at the border, straight to the front and straight through.  Downstairs to the baggage reclaim, stopped for a pee, then grabbed a trolley, walk to carousel and both my bags appear, together.  About 20-25 mins after walking off plane I am outside the airport.  Such times are unheard of!

Went out to see my first band for years on Saturday. Ended up at 40 with my first stitches ever after stumbling head first into the pavement. 9 stitches in head, three strips on noses, suffering from effects of concussion three days later and both eyes are swollen!

I threw away some kidneys whose use by date was 10 days ago.

 

They were turning black and had a strong aroma of a very ripe soft cheese.

Had an argument with someone at work today

Had another, or rather a continuation of the same argument today but this time the person I was arguing with asked me if I'd like to "step outside" to sort it out

I went out for 'a couple' last night. Got back about 3am and am both hungover and in the bad books as well.

Not going to manage to do those things I promised unfortunately.
