Not sure why

Today’s entry is just a random selection of probably-hard-to-explain things:

I saw the term “cogito ergo sum” being used in three totally different contexts in just one morning. It makes me think that the term is becoming quite fashionable. Not sure why though …

The other day I took a call from Australia on my mobile phone just before I set off for work. But the signal strength inside my house is not very good on the bottom floor – so I went to the top floor and found an optimal position near my bedroom window where I could get “5 bars”. Whilst I was speaking – I was staring out the window – and at one point I happened to spot a youngish kid walking away from the house next door. Nothing unusual. Except a few seconds later a police car screeches to halt outside my house and two officers jump out and run towards my next-door neighbour’s house and jump on another youth who was obviously trying to get away. They pinned him down, handcuffed him and waited until another police van arrived to take him away. I later found out that it was an attempted armed robbery; the “kids” (armed with knives) had climbed up on the conservatory at the rear of the house next door and clambered into the bathroom through an open window – not realising that someone was actually at home at the time. So – they locked themselves in the bathroom until they worked out what to do next – by which time the police had arrived and they decided to try and get away. Throughout the entire incident I continued to talk on my mobile phone as if nothing unusual was happening. Not sure why I did that …

I hardly ever watch TV – and I certainly don’t ever plan for it – but I’m planning to watch the TV drama “The Brief” (on ITV 1) tonight at 9pm – but not because I want to watch it – but because I want to watch an advert that will air at about 9.20pm during a commercial break in it. Not sure why I am going to such lengths to do so …

And finally – a few weeks ago I saw the following sign on the fence of the children’s play enclosure in my local park. I didn’t really “get it” at the time. So I took a picture so that I might try to “get it” later. I’m not at all sure what the underlying meaning of the sign is …

I still don’t “get it”
