Maybe next year

The dawn of the doughnut
Only one day to Basement Day. I just know there is nothing unusual down there but I will need to check all my bulk supplies of the stuff I buy from Costco. That store never ceases to amaze me.

I will also be allowed to drive under supervision and am looking forward to the day when I can start doing the kitty litter again. Cate has been doing this since 9 October and this really is a heroic performance. Of course she does wear a surgical mask and Ugg boots - but even so.

I have decided after Buffalo that we need to store more food in the basement because I just know that at some stage we will be buried here and will not be able to get out of the house for days. The weather in the mid west – and indeed in most places – seems to be just crazy. I have supplies of Saos and Vegemite but probably need some kangaroo tail soup and pickled koala ears for emergency use.

The colts are playing on Sunday – but they are playing like headless chooks and I have no hopes for them at all now. Maybe next year.


  1. In this part of the country, as soon as there's a major storm warning, everyone goes to Walmart and cleans out the cheap white bread and milk.

    That still confuses me.

  2. I, too, am running low on pickled koala bears. It is also time for a fresh jar of oyster sauce and a tube of anchovie paste. Sadly our new super Wal-Mart does not stock any buffalo meat. I think you are far enough away that you won't get any lake "defect" snow. Remember the fish in the snow storm from Fargo the TV series? I think I read that happened in Australia ....

  3. Make me a list and I will send Big Daddy, this launch is so bad I cannot imagine getting ahead right now.
