Cadel Evans – Aussie Superman (#187/365)

Never a more deserving victory than Cadel Evans’ win at the Tour. I’ve followed Cadel ever since he was a skinny teenager dominating the mountain bike world in the 90’s… the guy is a gun!

HAL’s pet OWL (#13)

OWL-9000

Headache. That’s what I got and it ain’t going nowhere.

Today’s ‘One a Day’ is, to be honest a “let’s get this stuff finished so I can go and lie down” kinda deal. My brain just isn’t up to the task of anything witty or insightful.

Introducing OWL-9000, HAL-9000’s pet Owl. Kubrick actually cut nearly all of OWL-9000’s appearances out of 2011: A Space Odyssey but if you look closely in the scene where HAL is reading Dave and Frank’s lips while they are discussing what to do, you can see OWL’s little antenna pop into frame. True story! OK, OK… that’s my brain starting to shut down. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be headache free and ready to move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom… ahem… time to go.
