Guess what I did today?
That’s right, as the title suggests, I had a go at writing tongue-twisters.
In reality I mainly sorted cupro-nickel sixpences, which is not half so good as a basis for a tongue-twister, but in the WordPress universe things aren’t always what they seem. I, for instance, differ greatly from my blogging persona in several respects. In real life I am cynical, jingoistic and given to profanity. I also have a number of bad points.
I’m also disorganised and, after extensive browsing of ebay I have seven minutes left to post this before midnight.
Julia had a restful day today and, as a result, is feeling better. She seems surprised by this, despite events proving quite clearly that her bad back is linked to doing too much.
She’s just been reading a report on research done on Mensa members. It seems that the hairier you are, the smarter you are. She then offered the opinion that I should delay the remodelling of my beard, which I have been contemplating for some time. I’m not sure the correlation works quite as clearly as that, but it’s something to think about.
I wouldn’t want to decrease my IQ by cutting my hair, after all, by using ebay I’m already damaging my intelligence quite enough.
You don’t need a great deal of intelligence to sort shillings, lift boxes and organise accessories, which have been my main activities of day.

It was still light when we left the shop at 4.20, which is a good sign, and I took several shots of the sky at that point, before doing a few more in the supermarket car park whilst buying things for tea. I tried for some shots of the tiny sliver of moon but it wasn’t light enough and the long exposure meant that they all ended up shaky.
