Another brain in my notebook

Photograph of page from notebook, showing very bad sketch of human brainMy notebook is full of references to the human mind.

Once, on a Saturday Night at The Duke last year, it was a written note by a chap who’d only just been released from jail.

This time (pictured) it’s ’Pong explaining certain basic neurological reflexes.

No, it doesn’t say “Eight High Freeze” — whatever that is! — but “Fight Fligh[t] Freeze”. This diagram explains it all, neurochemistry and everything. Uhuh.

I just love the way that sketched explanations only make sense at the precise moment they’re being created.

Maybe I should go back through that notebook…

    Your notebook is also full of references to Julie Bishop…

    Diagrams and Ms Bishop — I think yesterday’s First Dog on the Moon cartoon in Crikey says it all.

    @Snarky Platypus: Yes, Julie Bishop gets a few mentions in my notebook. And she certainly gets mentioned a lot on this website. Your point?

    As soon as Thursday’s First Dog on the Moon gets published at his free website rather than Crikey I’ll link to it.

    I think three of his best recently are John Howard — where is he now?, Tony Abbott — Friend of the long-nosed bandicoot and The Ghost of Binges Past”.

    Oh yeah, the bandicoot one was brilliant.
