Houseperson | Work | Seeing Things

"Work" had a staffing crisis, so I got a call at 9.30 and ended up on the bus to town. Sadly, I had forgotten that bbd and mummyfrog were going to be elsewhere, so ended up getting a single there and a single back. If anything else, Stagecoach (the bus company) are damn good at highway robbery.

Everyone was disgruntled at "work" so it felt like I was being followed by a cloud of bad humour. Went to park for lunch. Pasta salad with oven-roasted toms and feta. Not sure why I'm telling you guys, I don't normally talk about my food.

Last night was deeply amusing with papajoemambo showing me some Canadian you-tubed awesome in the form of "Seeing Things" a seventies "quirky Canadian detective show" featuring a psychic reporter who solves crime. And there are some lovely touches of silliness, especially when our hero addresses somebody as "so, you're the houseboy?" "no" "houseperson?". That amused me greatly, even if I have a tough time getting to youtube in the evenings.

We also had some delightful PSA's about Canadian wildlife called (really) Hinterland Who's Who. We would like to know which Mountie would set his ring-tone to the theme tune.

First attempt at youtubery *crosses fingers*



I love the absolute monotone seriousness. Actually, I might like the beaver one even more, but hey, what can say Canada better than a moose?
