The guys offshore have been posting on FB about last nights 110+mph winds and 18+metre seas. Also, one of the standby boats was damaged and started taking on water. A rescue operation was kicked off at 04.30, but haven't heard anything else.
Dave, good grief, thank the godz you are safe, and I hope your co-workers last out the storm safely !
Looking up the origins and usages of the word "bawbag:" was most illuminating. I'd never heard that term before.
"We live in a world ruled by fictions: mass merchandising, advertising, politics as advertising, instant translation of science, technology, into popular imagery, increasing blur of identity in realms of consumer goods, preempting any free, original, imaginative, response to experience by the television screen. We live in an enormous novel. For a writer it's less necessary to invent a novel's fictional content: fiction's already there. A writer's task is to invent a reality." J. G. Ballard, 1974
