Curious and curiouser

A few interesting snippets from the news:

The old folding sofa trick:

"A Russian woman in St Petersburg killed her drunk husband with a folding couch, Russian media have reported."

So next time your wife tells you to get your butt off the sofa and do something, you'd better listen, buddy.

Even the crims have manners:

"A note with the words "thank you" and a smiley face has puzzled police investigating a break-in at a Masterton house..."

If a burglar can manage those words, why can't the kids?

World's oldest blogger makes final post.

"The Australian woman renowned as the world's oldest internet blogger has made her final post, aged 108."

For all those people out there who say they're too old - you've just run out of excuses!

108!! Oh god, Vanda, please let me stop well before then. But how does one stop once one has begun....? Hmmm. Sounds very Alice in Wonderland to me.

BTW there's a lovely review of Overkill on a new writer's blog http://www.joanneganley.blogspot.com/
