Good afternoon guys. Welcome to your Good George daily dose of distraction. Today is a Thursday which feels a bit weird cause most Day Ones are Mondays.
Like 6am on a Sunday morning in August
Today’s working from home discovery:
The unusual habits of your pets
Lockdown resolutions that may or may not begin today:
- Practice that Guitar
- Pair all of your odd socks
- Devise a cunning plan to stay fit/get fit whilst sitting on the couch (you are awesome)
- Plan an extravagant 3 course dinner each day. Forget it, and settle for spag bol. Again
Today’s Lockdown Project:
Build an obstacle course out of cushions and record your fastest lap times around the garage and/or lounge.
For inspiration Google little-known kiwi legend Arthur Porrit. “Arthur Porritt was New Zealand's first Olympic athletic medallist, winning bronze in the 100 metres at the 1924 Summer Olympics. The race was later immortallised in the 1981 film Chariots of Fire, although at Porritt's request his character in the film was renamed ‘Tom Watson’.”
Happy Hour Tip for the Day:
Put on the Movie Diehard, take a drink when:
- Anyone uses a radio or walkie-talkie to communicate
- McClane kills a bad guy
- There's a Christmas reference
- McClane talks to himself
Netflix Recommendation of the Day:
Drive to Survive, based on a season in the Formula One. Fast Cars and intense drivers with fragile egos. Spoiler Alert: we are half way through the season and none of the drivers are named George.
