    Oi, what is this, a livejournal thread?

    Pedants could object that the day is < 40 minutes old and therefore it might make sense to wait until more of it has been seen before commenting further. I, however, consider that "today" colloquially starts at sunrise.

    Since you ask, I:

    * slept in.

    * finished and sent a rather long and considered email to a fellow snail expert. We are discussing whether a certain snail previously supposed to be one of the commonest and hardiest native Tasmanian species might in fact be an introduction from New Zealand, and considering evidence for or against its nativeness elsewhere

    * walked to and from the supermarket (c. 25 mins each way)

    * cooked dinner (a relatively rare event)

    * watched two TV programs, both featuring violence between animals of questionable intelligence

    * exchanged four PMs back and forth with Arrogant-One in which I told him I didn't believe a word of his claim to have at some stage sold chesschat.org.au, and asked him several questions to which he gave evasive non-answers and then sent me a one-liner that was absolute and feeble BS.

    * annotated six games from the 1999 HICC championship, three of which I should have lost (of these three I drew two and won one on my way to winning the event undefeated). I was embarrassed to find that in one case I had previously given !? to a move by me that most properly deserved ?? (it should have dropped a piece to a zwischenzug).

    Please do not expect me to post such summaries to this thread on a regular basis.

    Or, indeed, ever again!

    My day was far less exiting than Axioms.

    In the morning (should not be called morning really as i got up late ) Went jogging and did yoga. Followed up by a beautiful brunch (mixed all the fruits into a lovely fruit salad and added some fat free Greek Yougurt, also had a cup of tea)

    Afternoon was productive but boring as i had to mark assignments at 4pm. - took a break from marking to go for a local walk with friends to Caulifield park. On my return - had a lovely dinner (Big Bowl of Veggie Soup, chicken fillet, and a cup of green tea)
    After dinner got back to marking. Once the marking was funished (yay!) played a bit of chess on the Internet and surfed the Web.

    Right now...watching a Russian Video (Very interesting Documentary), having apricote tea, and finalising my agenda for next week.

    Went to the Marion Cultural Center Chess club (I am not sure of the official name). I hadn't been for a while, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that we had a few new people. In total there were about 12 people. This is great because for a long time there would be usually 6-7 people, and 4-5 of them were the same each week.

    Got a haircut. (I think I might dye it bright green again soon.)

    Went to family dinner for cousins 18th birthday. At said function, won (with another person) a game of billiards, first to 100. Final score, 100-99.

    Talked to humans on the internet.

    Read chapter for uni tomorrow (that one isn't done, but it will have to be).

    The highlight of my day was going to Brumby's to buy a loaf of bread and ending up asking the cute sales assistant out on a date.

    "Today" is now yesterday (Sunday). I went to my local church as is my habit. The service went overtime. It started at 10am, and the chap preaching only got started at about 11:15, by which time I was already getting fidgetty. At around 11:30, after 15 minutes of rambling semi-incoherent thoughts, none of which seemed particularly logically connected to the one which immediately preceded it, he said "I suppose I'd better start my sermon" ... at which point I leaned over to my wife and whispered "I'm outta here, call me when you want me to pick you up" ... and went home. I then spent a productive 45 minutes re-stringing my acoustic guitar, before returning to church to collect wife and child. A few people looked at me oddly, but I just smiled sweetly and ignored them.

    n.b. for all future preachers ... its against my religion to spend more than 1.5 hours in church on a Sunday.

    Mondayitis

    The highlights of my day so far have been seeing the duck couple splashing around in the freezing looking stream on my walk to the train, passing the 'horse riding prohibited' sign in our street and then reading on the train on the way to work. I expect the day will pick up again when I get to read on the train on my way home and things will improve dramatically once I get home in the late afternoon … the true highlight of the day!

    (like Spiny, I think it’s time for a job change)

    I did. It appears the catalyst of the problem was one black straw that had doubled up inside the pipe and trapped (until total blockage occurred) a considerable amount of muck.

    We have a suspect and this man is presently being held and is assisting parents with their enquiries.
