Scatterday J

I've decided to join in the Scatterdays fun (cause I don't like to miss out when my friends are playing - mature huh?). The letter this week is J so here we go...

For the category Restaurant we have the Jasmine Rice Thai Restaurant here in Wollongong. They have very nice Thai food, but eating here is a bit odd for me - 20 years ago my parents owned and ran their restaurant in these premises. It was American style Ribs & Steak and I think they were a bit ahead of their time, given the success of Chilli's, Hog's Breath, etc in more recent years. I'm yet to taste any ribs as good as theirs.


The next category is sport and although Adam made a very good suggestion of Jousting it was a little difficult to find any of that going on. So instead we have Emma jumping rope (it is so a sport).

And finally we have Pointy Things (who thinks up these categories?). For this one I found this picture of Javelins and Javelinmen which is part of the Bayeaux Tapestry from the Middle Ages. Javelins are definitely very pointy, just ask that poor guy in the middle of the shot with one sticking into him.
I'm in Brisbane this week for the Quilt Show, so I'm setting this up to post on Saturday (hope it works). I'll try to post while I'm away, but I'm not sure if I'll have access to the internet. If not, be good and have fun, and I'll bring you up to date when I get home.

So glad you've joined in Nic! I agree, jumping rope is absolutely a sport!! Good job on finding a javelin too, with a crafty theme no less.

As far as I am aware, Blogger does not have future-posting functionality - although you can modify the date stamp, it still publishes the post straight away. If you have found a workaround for this, I would love to know!

Ha, sucked in, Nic! Clever to think of the Bayeux tapestry. I'll have to file that Thai place away for the next time we want a restaurant in Wollongong - we are working our way through them slowly.

You have done very well Nicolina. I am very impressed with all your scattegories! And you did it from a remote location as well!
