big nappy

a baby with a full nappy. full to bursting in fact (which accounts for the small ‘nugget’ on the floor !

hair by malcolm

it’s true you know. in this shop they employ a number of people called malcolm to sit next to you when you are having your hair cut.
it’s a lovely, but ultimately pointless idea.

286 – the feline number ?

here is the number 286, but look at the serial number on the tickets. KA77 (which looks a bit like KATT) and puss which looks a bit like PUSS.
Both of these are words are catty words ?
just a coincidence ? i don’t think so !

puddles !

it must have rained over night as there were loads of little puddles drying out as i walked to work this morning.
i don’t know if it was just lack of sleep, but most of them looked like people or animals.
i took a photo of a few for you

i think they look a bit like prehistoric cave paintings.

scarves

i saw a few scarves this morning, but this one was the best. it was like a giant knitted snake, snaking across the road.

giant satellite dish

i wonder how many people get injured with these things dropping off people’s roofs and walls ? probably none. but that doesn’t make it a silly question does it ?
i asked this question to Ask Jeeves and he suggested i went to a website on Iraq War Deaths. So perhaps it’s a problem over there.

hat tricks

few people are aware but in addition to carpentry the young jesus also had a job as a street performer where he and his mum would balance flower pots on his head

more media

i went to a place where they were showing what the future would be like for a drinks reception as part of a conference i went to recently. it was too hot and stuffy and we were trapped because it was a bus ride from civilisation.
someone said it was like being trapped in an Dixon’s warehouse, which it was.
there was some good points though. the food was fantastic and i got to see an actual 3D TV which was really showing proper 3D stuff without requiring magic glasses etc. it was totally incredible.
less impressive was this massive bank of flat screen tellies each showing a different program. i’ve seen the future but i couldn’t find the remote control or the off button.

hotel chapel

here is a self portrait of me in the chapel in my beligish hotel a while back. it was set up for a wedding and looked mighty fine.

(you know what, this doesn’t really look like me ! i set this to auto-update but i must have put the wrong photo in. never mind, this looks better than me. although the hotel chapel did look very pretty dressed up for the wedding)
