Coolday Saturday

Mutterings continued.

Lovely cool morning, overcast, Baudins cockatoos overhead - almost winter. It's a little humid but there's a nice breeze coming through the window.

I've been props purchasing today. Director Milson wants check tablecloths - unfortunately they're out of fashion this season so I've had to buy material to make some up. Cheaper but less convenient.

Amusement from the New Scientist - winners of the wackiest warning label competition.

"1st prize
Do not use for personal hygiene - ­ on a toilet brush
2nd prize
This product moves when used ­ - from a child’s scooter
Previous winners have included:
* Remove child before folding - ­ on a baby’s buggy
* Once used rectally, the thermometer should not be used orally -
on a digital thermometer
* Never remove food or other items from the blades while the
product is operating - on an electric hand blender
* Harmful if swallowed - ­ on a three-pronged brass fishing lure.
* Do not use this product as a toy, pillow, or flotation device -
on a bag of air used as a packing material
* Do not use as a ladder ­ - on a 30cm tall CD rack
* Never iron clothes while they are being worn - on a household
* Do not use the Silence Feature in emergency situations. It will
not extinguish a fire - on a smoke detector
* Do not eat toner - on a laser printer cartridge
* And on a pair of cyclist’s shin guards ­ Shin pads cannot protect
any part of the body they do not cover."

I'm making stir fry chicken noodles for dinner. Very quick and easy, with the added yum power of sesame oil.
