That was excellent. And surprising - would not have picked you for a beach person, or a beach sloth for that matter.

What do you think about this, though: without fashion, there can be no out of fashion, which leads straight to the death of the op shop....

boynton said...

Thanks, Luce.

Beach in Winter mainly - but wouldn't say no to beachside in Feb somewhere cheap.
Sloth is one of me Dad's faves, and a great coodabeen song which kind of suits this exercise which can make one confront one's best laid plans.

You're right. I guess I meant High Fashion - but to borrow the Sloth's world view - when seen from upside down - you're absoloutely right.
I've really got out of the habit of buying or even wanting new clothes. (So many better things to spend money on) But I do rely on the hop-shop for found haute.
(Which is too parka-d to be shabby chic or chic of any kind really)

Good profile. I would have said so earlier, but I was doing a sudoku.

Hmm, let's see. 7 to queen's bishop 1 followed by a bid of 8 no-trumps. Snap!

TV Snap! might be a different kettle of fish.

(No offence to Suodoku enthusiasts btw. It's a failure to understand on my part that prevents me joining the ranks.)

Tres cute but I couldn't help noticing it artfully avoided shedding light on the evil Boynton side.

And check your email oh Dark One.

boynton said...

Do we need a new meme by Nabakov that will draw out the evil?

Or a caption contest.

Congratulations. I knew you could do it. You're finally on a list with Saddam Hussein.

Here's hoping that your paths now diverge.

I was surprised by 'Hey Jude', too.
I heard on the radio yesterday it started off as 'Hey Jules' and was written to console Julian when he divorced Cynthia. They did mention why he changed it to 'Jude', but my brain's fried lately.

normal?

i wonder how minimalist a blog can get

Juke said...

McCartney to console Julian Lennon on the divorce of his parents is how I heard it in some long ago conversation somewhere.
Boynton if it is any comfort I am a reformed sudoku addict. Two months numerically clean with only one minor relapse.
It's not a maths thing, it's a spatial reasoning/geometry thing. Could be played with 9 items of fruit, or particularly passive chooks, or even, given the right board and temporal circumstance - 9 Giant Ground Sloths.
Which as you know could flip an adult glyptodon.

I liked your 'keep an offline journal' advice.

boynton said...

pk - Listless no more.

fx - Formally normal.

(I think this post is minimalist to the max)

CIB and Juke.
I heard that too. I think Jude was easier to sing.
(I love Heyjude of course, but it's all the childhood associations that pushes it over the best line.)

Hey juke - if bananas and oranges (chooks n sloths) were used more widely as mathematical symbols I could win at chess or be an eminent professor.
and Hey Jules

3cat. Helps to keep the selves
differentiated.
(Tho' I suspect that blogging the personal/offline stuff has evolved to become the currency of blogging.Which is why my niches are getting nichier I think)

Fascinating! Boynton out of the shadows...

I had to repost your comment, Gummo.
For some reason Storago read it as posted 2/3 not 3/2.
It would be the most recent comment for a norming month, which would be stormin'...
