Today's news made me snigger. It would seem that they are having a stock-take at London Zoo. I would have thought that knowing how many llamas or dingoes or sehlats or targs one has would have been rather central to the business of running a zoo, but what do I know?
Talking of animals, this evening I came home to find a note had been put through the door to ask me to look out for a missing cat. Apparently Petey is new to the area, (having recently immigrated from America), is easily confused and has learning difficulties. Well, I've not seen any cats recently, so I can't help.
I've never known a cat which is easily confused and has learning difficulties: I can't help but wonder if this is perhaps a feature of American cats. Perhaps some of my loyal readers might be able to elucidate on the matter.
After a really good bit of scoff we watched "Treasure Island": we recorded it onto the Sky-Plus box at the weekend and so watching it later we were able to save about a third of the original broadcast time that was used up by the adverts. I realise that the advertising goes a long way to pay for the TV programs, but I shell out quite a bit from my own pocket as well. I wouldn't mind the adverts quite so much if they didn't automatically increase the volume during the advert breaks...
