I'm going to do a very un-Grimlike thing and enthuse about a mower.


A mower.

We used to get our little plot of neighbouring bits of land mowed on the cheap, but what with things being as they are it's necessary to save some moolah. Paradoxically that means spending out to buy a mower and so we looked at the options.

What we eventually settled on, at my insistence, was the Bosch 34 LI which is rad because it's a cordless electric, rather than a petrol mower.

I think I made the right choice as even though it takes three charges to do both gardens, this is a plus since it forces you to take breaks. The really cool things about it however are that it is relatively quiet compared to petrol mowers and that it doesn't smell. That's the real bonus with it. When you're mowing you don't smell petrol fumes but rather the scent of the grass and anything else you run the mower over. While this may be a disadvantage if you go over some animal poop, most of the time it's nice. Some wild mind was growing in a patch in our garden and going over that was delightful - and I don't even like mint!

Hurrah for powerful, rechargeable batteries!

Japanese Porn

One of the more dubious 'advantages' of being the creator of Hentacle is that I occasionally get sent things that 'fans' think I would like to see. This morning I awoke to an e-mail with a link to a stream of some Japanese gothic-lolita porn. In the interests of research (*cough*) I decided to follow up this lead.

What a peculiar experience. Between the high pitched squeaking language of the girl, the bizarre and impenetrable 'plot', the creative camera angles to get around Japanese censorship and the beep-boop incongrously light and bouncy music, not to mention the elaborate costuming, it was much more like watching 'In the Night Garden' than porn, only with jism.

The Japanese are a strange people... if judged by their porn... but then I suppose so is any nation if judged solely by their pornography.

Horrific Urge

I have an horrific urge to make a LOLcats card game.

The aim would be to end the game with the most Lulz, Lulz gained by having LOLcats (and other LOlcritters) in your play area in front of you at the end of the game and each LOLcat can 'has' thing, to increase lulz. Especially Cheezburger. But some cards take things, or remove LOLcats.

But no, it would be silly.
