a bit of a wander [Apr. 13th, 2007|10:09 am]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |pere ubu - the tenement year]

went for a bit of wander this morning.
during the dawn chorus,
man those birds can really give it some!

so, down the french style avenue
like a deux cheveaux out of hell
to rothamsted experimental research station.
it's an agricultural thing
they test crops and shit
they have fridges full of locusts
and greenhouses full of cucumbers that you would not believe the size of.

the picture is of an old sun measurement device.
you put a graduated piece of paper behind the crystal ball
and it literally burns a record of the hours of sunshine.
of course it's all done digitally these days.
i was sorely tempted to unscrew the whole thing
and sell it on ebay.
but i managed to curb my cleptomaniacal tendencies.

on the the way back home i picked up these pieces of western detrius:

wtf? i really have no idea what this denotes unless
it's an anti-easter egg thing...
hmmmn... maybe it's a battery chicken thing?
it's credit card sized, the reverse is blank...

mr quiet? mr quiet! i'll give you mr quiet young lady!
mr bloody noisy. that's what you're going to get. oh yes. noisy baby
(in a stewie from family guy style)

this was a label amongst a patch of willow
that all had numbers consisting of nc6xxxx
it was the only broken one i saw and it read:

i'll have to ask them about that.

black sponge tool outline
i think.
looks pretty cool though.
