Go Darke

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Fundamental Joeyism


I’m multi-tasking, watching Shaun the Sheep. It’s the episode where the farmer needs to go out because the milk for his morning cuppa has gone off.

I feel a great kinship with the farmer. We are both broadly useless individuals, but we endeavor… to well… endeavor.

Although to be fair, yesterday I fixed our dishwasher. Which unlocked a rare achievement award in the character sheet of the Jo.

I am briefly tempted to embellish this foray into the murky, exposed butt-crack world of appliance repair. But it was just a fuse. Still, this meant having to take things apart… which left me with (in my mind at least) a scary amount of screws and only a dim idea how to put it all back together again. Still… on the second time round we prevailed. Heroically some might say.

The dishwasher feels like our most critical (non-fiber) technology. Without which we* would have to don marigolds and manipulate crockery with soap and brushes. How medieval.

*I use the term ‘we’ quite loosely. Thats not to say I won’t wash dishes… but lets just say my enthusiasm for this enterprise would likely be sporadic.

In other news I dropped the toddler off the jungle gym at the bike park this morning. Well… really she dropped herself, but I wasn’t quick enough off the mark to facilitate an intervention. She blocked the planet with her face and ended up with a double blood nose. Both our kids first bloodied injury have now occurred on my watch. Another dubious achievement award.

I guess I will take what I can get though. Its not like my trophy cabinet is overflowing anyway…
