I was going to learn to knit, as more of the people I know get into the baby business. Maybe I’ll crochet instead, I like the idea of working with something called Patons cha cha eyelash yarn.
I don’t have any one thing I’m so interested in that I could devote a whole blog to it, but Tiff does. More power to her.
We were discussing this earlier. Who can possibly forget Mr. Darcy’s penguin, which accompanied him everywhere? Or that heart
rending warming moment in Romeo and Juliet where the penguin gives young Romeo a helpful boost on the way up to Julie’s balcony? (It is a measure of the Bard’s genius that he could slip this in so effortlessly but at such a key moment in the story.)
Matrix 1 “What do you need?” “Penguins. Lots of penguins.” Excellent movie.
Matrix 2 & 3, no penguins- major disappointment.
Throw the penguin up the crevasse, bouncing it off the walls. Get as high as possible.

NEVER LEAVES HOME WITHOUT:
His joybuzzer, his whoopee cushion and Clyde, the rubber chicken.

Cycling on the Pavement won’t be up until tomorrow. I got distracted.
God knows, it’s easy.
The short lived American TV programme K Street was supposed to be a part documentary, part drama look at politics in Washington. As well as the actors, actual politicians and pundits would appear playing themselves. The series was supposed to stimulate interest in politics which would, theoretically, lead to more voter involvement and the raising of issues to be addressed in future episodes.
The Royle Family, a TV series mostly about a family sitting around and watching the telly, has to count as recursive, surely?
First John and now Brian. Where’s everyone going?
At least Brian’s page is, as it says, intentionally that way, which suggests plans for a future comeback.
I’m beginning to feel lonely.
Brian commented last week that Johnnytheo was missing its eponymous leader. I just went to see if he’d returned and got a 403 Forbidden message.
Does anyone know where this erstwhile member of Team Spinneyhead has gone and why his website is no more? I’d hate it if his meandering, and occasionally drunken, posting style were to disappear forever.
Plus, he owes me some money.
Another entry from the occasional series of the wit, wisdom and rants of casa Spinneyhead-
Emily- “If you ever did pull in your Must Not Mention Sheep T-shirt, you’d have her for life.”
I will refer to this post in some future post. At that time I will make this link active to point at the referring post.
A Google search for the phrase “boxes in boxes” (quotes included) helped me find out about a minimalist art project- Time Boxes. The boxes, containing art works, were sealed in 1975 and reopened in 2000.
A couple of months ago I posted about Bourton-on-the-Water model vilage, which incorporates a model of the model- within which is a model of the model of the model.
Or something like that.
I’m up for another piece of data trawling tomorrow. Does anyone have any suggestions for subjects?
Have many levels of recursion do you see in real life?
The concept of “toy knights of the round table” (sic) is a bit like having a doll’s house in a doll’s house in a doll’s house (not that I would know, mind you!).
So the challenge for Ian and rest of team Spinneyhead: Find some more examples of recursion in real life, e.g. somebody watching a tv advert within a tv advert.
Plans for transporting icebergs from the Arctic to arid regions are still being considered. The kite powered version is typically British.
“A website devoted to the toy knights of the round table, providing valuable information on toy knights and other toy figures” – taken from this toy soldier and train site. Now I’ve got the image of 3″ knights.
