Working

I don’t work in London, but if I did then I’d see a lot of this. People going places fast (all wearing the same shoes!?). I got told not to take pictures by security becasue I could be planning a terrorist attack. The underground is a strange place. I don’t know how to feel about it. In a way it’s facinating but at the same time really boring and dull. I am glad I don’t live in a city.

Pretty Shady

It looks like pretty shady has died. I think it’s a year old – if you don’t pay the server money then it won’t work.

Not sure what the future is. Will pretty shady get renewed? Will joe go back to geocities? Will the internet ever be the same again. For now I am afraid you will have to get to know the other sites on my links page a bit better.

Ricky Gervais: Animals

This is on TV tonight. TONIGHT. You have to watch it. If you are out record it. It is very funny.

It’s hard to do a review without giving jokes away, or making something sound so good that you will be disapointed but I will give it a go.

After watching the office you think that no one could be more annoying than David Brent. Ricky Gervais is able to continue playing this character in his stand up show, but in a way that doesn’t make you hate him – you know that he isn’t serious. Maybe this makes it better than the office, or maybe its more annoying. I think that’s it’s less subtle humor, although the distinction between Gervias and the characters he personifies is less clear.

This probably gives it a more mass appeal than the office, without loosing Gervais’ humor and wit. He has a knack with his phraseology which I really like as well. Like he will say some stupid phrase like “every cloud” or “swings and roundabouts”, but with so much sarcasm that it will be hilarious.

The show is basically about animals – the bits David Attenborough left out. And it really is that. There are a lot of strange facts about animals. Which I like.

Politics isn’t as good as Animals. It is a bit more picky. So anyway, you have to watch it.

Food


I ate some interesting food yesterday. Above: Tea was blue because it was made with blueberries. It looked very strange but it tasted really nice. Below: My first ever egg sandwich. I never had an egg sandwich until yesterday becasue they smelt so disgusting. They were actually nice though. It was a free lunch with wrok which is why it’s on a fancy plate. I have 2 lunches on Wednesday and 2 lunches on Monday.

Jessops

My camera has been broken for a bout 4 months probably. It does this thing where when you press the button down to focus, and then down all the way, it doesn’t take a picture. This can get annoying, but it’s less annoying than not having a camera so I put up with it. I have an insurance package with Jessops which cost about £50 but I didn’t want to use it becasue I would be without a camera for about 6 weeks. Anyway I got annoyed with my camera and 4 months later I took it to Jessops for them to fix it. I asked if they could replace it while mine was away and they said that’s fine and gave me a 4 mega pixel olympus digicam. Thanks very much. So at the moment I like Jessops.
