Holding Our Hands

The dead don’t go till you do, loved ones.
The dead are still here holding our hands.

Word For The Day: Resistentialism

Resistentialism is one of those ideas that has occasionally niggled away at the back of my mind, but I have never been able to put a word to. Resistentialismis Paul Jennings’ comedic theory that inanimate objects show malicious or spiteful behaviour towards humans; almost as if they are at war with us. Next time you “misplace” your keys you will know exactly what I mean – where can they possibly be hiding?

Thanks have to go to Mark Frauenfelder for naming this thought in his on Dinosaurs and Robots about the finger-slicing razor and his bulldog clip revenge [^].

Sixpence Cufflinks

Sometimes my creative urge gets tickled. That was definitely the case when I saw these sixpence cufflinks [^] from Thornhill Jewellery.

I don’t object to the price – £30 seems quite reasonable. It’s just that all of a sudden it doesn’t look all that hard. After all you can get 100 cufflink backs for about $50, then you can put whatever you want on the front. But I may get tempted in the meantime.
