and in local news : stolen fish

Punt tomorrow. School night gig marathon from heck. I blogged it a couple of years ago as a gin'n'tonic crawl. Things have changed a lot since then -- the venues are a different (and, I think, nicer) set and at least one of the venues has been renamed. Twice, I think. Not to mention that this year I'm actually on stage, shouting for Space Heroes of the People (11pm, at the Cellar). Eeek.

In other news, something has been digging up my garden. Cats? Hedgehogs? Crows? I'm planting hardy things (marigolds, night-scented stock) in the disturbed areas, but damiancugley favours a more technological approach and wants to cam up the garden. Oh, and I have a greenhouse, in bits, in the garden. Just like flatpack furniture, right? (god help me...)

Pictures and educational notes about spotting when a panda is on heat accompany this account of how the introduction of a hot young male sparked off a panda mating frenzy. Also: inflatable whales!

A couple of links from douglasnoble, deserving of further investigation: Look inside the suitcases of Peter Greenaway's fictional archivist Tulse Luper; and explore the work of Jason Nelson, whose game, game, game and again game I just failed to finish (hard to avoid the nagging suspicion that success is impossible, having built similar things myself in the dim distants).

Last: making strawberry daquiris by injecting white rum into strawberry with a syringe is a) possible and b) delicious. Photographs of shooting up the strawberries will follow.

...and in local news someone steals a massive quantity of fish. The mind boggles just at the logistics!
