Minnesota Blogger Not Really Trying

  • If the government is shut down, while the hell were there politicos yammering on last night when EastEnders was supposed to be on? Bastards. Don't they know what's important?

  • I love these pictures of lightning from last week's storms in Britain. My question is this: How does one capture a picture of lightning? I can't imagine ever getting the timing right.

  • Cavemen would have enjoyed rap music.

  • Quick, describe your daily life in the form of a newspaper headline:
    St. Paul Man Corrects English, Drinks Heavily

    You just open the lens of the camera and wait for one or more strikes to appear in the area where you're aimed. No timing needed. No kite flying needed, either.

    Completely unrelated but I met a guy from Minnesota tonight - claimed he was from little Canada or summit
    ? A completely nice guy but I was too hammered to hold a decent conversation with him. Just talked about Vermont and Montreal instead....! Common interest.

    Little Canada is just a few miles northeast of St. Paul. He may have been talking about Summit beer -- it's a laudibly good local beer. But the adverts involve two guys going to Europe and making people try the beer, so many Minnesotans are under the impression that we and our beer are beloved in foreign lands.

    yeah, I expect that beer was the main topic of coversation! I think I talked to him for a while, don't remember much though - he was no doubt telling me loads of interesting things about Little Canada!
