an eye for the mundane

we went to the Reading Childrens’ Fun Day today.
Self portrait on the Greyfriars Church stand. Esther obviously
thinks of herself as a spider
a couple of hours later with tiger face paint and a balloon flower

this is a story about a fairy who didn’t have anything except some furniture and one guitar.
one day a cat went upstairs and chewed the cheek of her favourite toy.
(that’s as much as we have from her at the moment).

there is a habit in london of bricking up doorways with breeze blocks.
and then doing some nice big graffiti over it (thus ruining the nice
breeze block patter – but there you go – you can’t have art without
destroying art I always say)
here is an example featuring an alien:
you can’t quite see on the small version, but someone has drawn a
little eye and nose, and converted the mouth to a moustache:

My Lords, I hope noble Lords will appreciate how I move seamlessly from corned beef to spam.
My Lords, will the Minister explain how it is that an inedible tinned food that lasted for ever and was supplied to those on active service can become an unsolicited e-mail, bearing in mind that some of us wish to be protected from having an e-mail?
The United Kingdom Parliament

title-less emails are a queer thing. you feel obliged to open them to see what they are about. an email or website title is like a headline on a newspaper, inviting you to read the content. But conversely it is there to warn you to stay clear if you don’t want what it offers.
a good title is inviting (or warning).
a misleading title is a social no-no.
a non-title is an cheeky invitation to sample the unknown. dive in my friends it says.
so where do i stand on this issue. good question. thanks for asking.
and i haven’t even mentioned the numerous issues relating to attachments …
