Warm and dark

The weather has been odd - quite still and warm. Forestry Tas have taken the opportunity to burn off, so the sunrises and sunsets have been lurid orange, to add to the weirdness. On Mondays and Tuesdays I knock off at 6pm and walk home. Since daylight savings ended, this has meant a walk in the dark, but I have been really enjoying it. It feels so nice, like I am in a cocoon. I usually listen to a good podcast, and I almost feel like I am in the radio equivalent of a cinema, even though I am walking. Does that make any sense? We supposedly have three or four more days of this, then there will be a reality check. For now, I am still employing shorts.

Inside your 'radio equivalent of a cinema' do you listen to maltesers/jaffas rolling down the aisles?

Come on Nobes - maltesers and jaffas in the aisles went out with plots and good writing, years ago.

The State Cinema in North Hobart (just some exposition here for the folks in Arkansas and Costa Rica) used to have a door that was a portal to 1993 - did they keep that in the renovations?
