I'm been away for a couple of days in London for a friend's wedding. Fun, fun, fun. I can't believe she's married.

(Lord of the Rings, wow.)

Note: There's a new blog in town.

We don't celebrate Christmas in

We don't celebrate Christmas in this house. We have turkey, pull crackers and get presents but we don't celebrate Christmas. I've been labelled Scrooge because I find this a little weird. Bah humbug.

Not that I don't like the Christmas spirit. It reminds me of days gone by. Participation in the nativity play (they always cast me as an angel, and once I had to do a solo, scary), fun carols (we often changed the words to rude ones because we were mature like that), pretty cool movies on the telly (some of the classics like A Christmas Carol and The Wizard of Oz still give me a warm feeling inside) and overdosing on chocolate.

If Christmas means a little peace for a couple of days then I won't complain. Merry Christmas.

Right now there are 5, yes 5, pairs of shoes that I have my eye on. Send me Dolcis vouchers for Christmas y'all.

Useful link: Special HTML Characters

I have so many ideas, design and creative ideas buzzing around my head right now but no time to execute them. I may explode.

Microphone, hmmm.

I love you reader. I love that you visit and read my words and visit the links I put before you. Say it ain't unrequited love.

My posts are becoming more surreal as time goes on. I like that.

There were many highlights this

There were many highlights this Eid. Say for instance, family, friends, food, Harry Potter, rediscovering how fine Brad Pitt is, Haagen Daaz, silly games like Chinese Whispers and more.
The downsides? None. Oh, except four alarms going off at five in the morning. Simultaneously.

How to make biryani. Now there's no excuse for not making it when I come to visit.

Sorry, I didn't send out any virtual Eid Greetings this year. But I was thinking of you, promise.

It's not often you'll read

It's not often you'll read an article and know most of the people and places mentioned in it personally. I know Marsh Farm! I went to that sixth form college! John Ramm teaches my sister and was my best friend's favourite teacher! I live near Bury Park! My sister knows those people! Anyway, it's a good article.

I remember a while ago

I remember a while ago watching this programme on BBC2 and seeing this amazing piece of art. Could'nt remember the artists so I thought that I'd never see it again. But I found the artists and even a picture of the piece of art I love! I love the internet.

To me, it's always a good idea to carry around two sacks of something when you can walk around. That way if anyone asks you for a hand, you can say 'Sorry, I've got these sacks.' - Jack Handey

House for an Art Lover

House for an Art Lover

Glasgow's most famouse architest, Charles Rennie Mackintosh entered a competition in 1901 to design a 'House for an Art Lover'. The house was not realised during Mackintosh's lifetime. The construction of the house began in 1989 and was completed in 1996.

Near the entrance to the house

Garden seat. Those colourful jelly mould type things were...colourful jelly mould type things. Don't know what their purpose is.

It feels like it should be snowing.

My body feels like it needs a nice long relaxing bath.

Those books feel they should be read.

The bank account feels it needs some money.

That car feels it needs a wash.

Oh well.

Glasgow Science Centre and IMAX Cinema. Unfortunately you can't see the Glasgow Tower in these pictures which stands alongside these two buildings. It's the only building in the world capable of turning 360° from the ground up.

I don't remember what this is or where it was. We were out retro clothes shopping one day when I saw the view and snapped this photo.

I want this t-shirt. The sad thing is though that no irony/piss taking would be involved whilst wearing it. I did like them when they were 'underground'. Ahem. Mango juice makes me phlegmy.
