Alright. This is why I listen to BBC Radio 4 in the morning. I found out that Mr. Gordon Sumner (Sting) sacked his chef because she was pregnant. He was ordered to pay her 25 000 (oh, where’s that silly “pounds” symbol?) for gender discrimination. Grrr….Anyways, double that number and he (essentially) has to pay 50 000 CDN to this lady. Serves him right in my opinion. Now, I’m sure, as he mourns the absence of gourmet tofu from his dinner table, he’ll ramble into a soulful rendition of “Can’t Stand Losing You…”
Now, the hosts of “Home Planet” are discussing questions regarding the planet and the natural world. Urm, I’m only on my first cup of coffee and my brain is throbbing now (Uncle Spock would be disappointed). Anyways, the hosts are discussing the theoretical number of galaxies surrounding our very own (millions) and the shapes of these galaxies (spiral, lenticular, etc.). A plea is being made to “amateur-internet-astronomers” to contribute information to this “Galaxy Zoo.” Hmmm…I wonder if they need a “Galaxy Tamer” for this “Galaxy Zoo?” I could imagine myself in a “stellar” outfit, whip in hand as I order the Milky Way to contort into bizarre shapes. Hm….sounds like a great plot for a Dr. Who episode (David Tennant watch out!).
I think the heat of summer is getting to me….!
