Off on a tangent



I came home tonight to find the following email.

Dear Chris,

Would you possibly do me the honor and post two similar but different pictures -? This is the challenge:

Warm regards,

Anne

In fact i came home to a lot of emails but this is the only one i am going to talk about because i'm in a bad mood and time seems to be running away from me tonight and it's already nearly midnight and i have to get up at 6.30 again and nothing i seem to say is what is needed and i've been shouting at everyone around me and ....

You know how it is.

Anyway.........

Anne has a great blog - much better than mine in fact and you really ought to go and see it - it's here.

On this blog we are limping to the last few days of On/Off month - something explained - here - and since there are only four days to go and i really don't know what to do/say/be and i'm in a bad mood and time seems to be running away from me tonight and it's already nearly midnight and i have to get up at 6.30 again and nothing i seem to say is what is needed and i've been shouting at everyone around me and ....

You know how it is.

So i thought i'd respond to Anne's challenge/request/warm regards.

Ps beginning of trip/end of trip. Penzance Harbour.

Oh, Chris, sorry you had a bad day and so little sleep. Not a good cure to general grumpiness.

Well, warm regards back.

Have never been to Penzance. Here's something - erm - fitting Ihttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQ7SVMVrick

beautiful photos, Chris. Saw Roscoff in another post, which is only 30 minutes from where I'm working right now.

@Anne... had never seen Kevin Kline as a pirate... did you know that pirate comes from "pier rat". Ah... etymology

You're kidding! Really?? Wow, love it :)

You know what... i went to go find the hard evidence, and I"ve found that I had fallen prey to an urban etymology legend (and there are many !). Pirate and peril are cognates of the Indo-European root "per".

Now we know... but i liked the "pier rat" version better ! ;-)

Brad! - good to have you on board (matey).

I'm really tired again - seems to be n ongoing problem this week, the grumpiness factor is lifting but still, i'm off to bed - i'll visit your blog tomorrow.

Come again.
