Too early

Been here since 7.30 a.m. Although it is good to get a change of schedule now and again, and it was fun on the train as I had new people to watch. Aren’t we a funny bunch, from the man picking his nose who only seemed to remember he was on a train when he…

Difficult to describe this, and it affects Louise more than it affects me, but do you ever listen to some songs and just think… ohhh that’s raunchy… Doesn’t have to be obvious, or overtly sexual in content, just something about it that makes you go… “Phwwwwoooaarrrr” ???

The day Britain stopped

The day Britain stopped. As usual I missed the thing everyone is talking about (here in the office, and in blog-land). Thankfully I can watch it tonight as the BBC have provided the whole thing in a Real Player stream. However it does kinda limit my participation in any discussions about it, but from what…

I really need to spring clean my head, unfortunately it’s chock full of work stuff (the joys of working on three projects simultaneously). Expect more short, sharp, and possibly shifty postings over the next day or two.

Tornation

I’m a huge fan of simple graphics used to describe a complex concept. Like the birth of a tornado. Five short animated screens, and I now know how a tornado is formed.

LOSING MOBILE ‘LIKE DEATH’ “Research among 25 to 34-year-olds found that 46% “could not live without” their mobile”. Who the hell did they interview? Yes I’ve been banging out about my spiffy new phone but, it’s just a phone. Get a grip people! Ohh and a point made by my Dad yesterday, he’s a schoolteacher,…
