Random TV Notes

I’m pretty sure the Oscar ceremony shown on Channel 9 was “abridged”. I don’t remember seeing the award for best foreign language film, and I’m 100% sure the award for best documentary short was not shown (in fact, I think the award for best documentary feature was only shown because one of the winners is Australian) — the rather sudden appearance of Tom Hanks on the stage was a give away. Also, there wasn’t any mention of the scientific and engineering awards ceremony; they usually show a short clip during the main ceremony.


If “Duck Power Cleaner” kills 99.9% of the germs, it also selectively breeds the strongest 0.1% of the germs. Think about it.


I’ve yet to find a cat that sits as passively as the one in the ad while that Revolution anti-flea medication is applied. They don’t like the smell of the product and they’re not very fond of cold, wet products being applied on the back of their necks.

Ch9 always does a bit of Oscar editing. At least you got to see the ceremony (“abridged” or not) — it was shown live here (2-5am local time) on a cable channel I don’t get, and no-one showed a repeat. I had to watch highlights on Youtube :(

We used to use a flea collar on our cat. It smelt strong for the first couple of days or so, but then tended to die away a bit. The cat hated it, but they worked well. We’d even leave the off-cuts in her sleeping box, but she still slept there.

Always easy to put on though coz you’d just treat her to a good scratch around the neck … which was much desired if she did actually have fleas!

As for it being cold – just warm it up in your hands for a bit! I do that even with shaving gel on the rare occaisions I decide to shave. Seems growing a beard is easier these days, or maybe I’m just trying to live a cold chisel song.
