animals (people dressed up)


today our friend was a parrot. i didn’t try to speak to him like last time though.
his boss probably greated him excitedly that morning and announced “what we’ve been missing is colour. today you’re going to be a parrot”.

frog or dinosaur ?

the dressed up animal advertising is back outside the glasses shop on tottenham court road.
in the name of research i approach the animal (frog or dinosaur?) to ask if it was always the same person inside the array of animals we’ve seen in recent months.
a foreign voice said “speak slowerlier pleece”
i repeated myself slowerlier to pleece him.
he paused then said “sorry, i do not undertant”.
i wonder if he understood what the job entailed when he took it ?

grin and bear it

the animal invasion of tottenham court road just keeps on getting better and better.
have they reached the magic formula by choosing a bear rather than their previous animals ? (or is it a tiger/lion – i’m no good at animals ?)

bear essentials

the monkey and the rabbit obviously didn’t work out. but this chap looks like he’s got a can of beer in his hand.
perhaps it’s cider. or a jar of honey.

marketing rethought

so, it didn’t work out with the monkey. people don’t trust them you see. and what’s a monkey got to do with an glasses and contact lenses anyway ?
“don’t worry about last week’s sales, i’ve got a much better plan”
“are you sure ? that monkey thing was rubbish”
“absolutely. trust me. this can’t go wrong”
“ok, what you got for me ?”
“a rabbit dressed up as a rabbit”

bradley walsh and bonnie langford

we went in to town this morning to do some shopping. i went off with kezia to look at guitars and cool stuff whilst esther and jane did proper girl shopping for clothes etc.
kezia and i ended up being in a shopping centre where they were announcing that they were going to turn the christmas lights on and some celebrities were on the way.
so we waited. for 30 minutes. but nothing happened. despite it being past the allotted time. eventually we had to run to meet the others back at the train station.
apparently we were waiting for Bradley Walsh. but we didn’t. So sorry about that.
here are some fairies getting dressed behind the tree and a giant bear giving out teeny weeny bears:
