strange kitchen encounters

okay

current mood: okay

Katherine and I were in the kitchen upstairs getting a cup of tea. How many stories start this way? Quite a few, in spite of the demise of the poster featuring a bowl of ducks' feet.

Anyway, a strange man said a poem at us about a bird in a tree. And we were reminded of a previous strange man on an earlier occasion who wanted me to give him my used tea bag for some apparently formidable woman from House Services whose name was meant to inspire awe in us, except we'd never heard of her.

Perhaps our work kitchen is a gateway to a parallel universe. One in which the very atmosphere is hallucinogenic.

Meanwhile, back in New Zealand...

ALSO:
This is a tiny picture of the famous poster with the bearded man thinking about a bowl of ducks' feet while being driven to work by a nurse. In case anyone wondered.

It's a bag of shite anyway. Save 10 minutes in the 2+ lane, spend half an hour dicking around picking up Mr Dozy Duckfeet from his house.

It doesn't add up!

But you have to add up all the pairs of people picking up Mr Dozy Duckfeet, and then work out how much fuel is being saved, and the impact of that on the environment and your energy expenditure...

But they don't mention that in heir poster - if they did it would make sense.

No, they just say you'll save time. THEY LIE!

What if the distance you have to travel to pick up Mr HardHatDuckFeetMan is greater than the distance he has to travel to work? Then you are using MORE fuel.

And what are the chances of a nurse and a construction worker working in the same place? For a start construction jobs move from place to place, you don't work in the same office all your life.

It's just a silly nonsense.

Maybe she's a construction site health and safety expert nurse person. And if they don't have those, then really they should.
