There's a storm in my teacup!

Well, in my dollar store mug.

Look Around You Returns!

The Good: It's only a week away, as it will be on BBC2 at 10 o'clock on Mondays.
The Bad: Josie Trent D'Arby? Can't remember a time I believed her to have much talent in whatever role she took on.
The (potentially) Ugly: It'll be in 30 minute stints instead of the fun little ten minute chunks the episodes used to be - the twenty minute calcium trailer on the Look Around You DVD suggested the subjects could get a bit... unfunny if stretched out.

Still, I'm more pleased than not to see this show back on television.

Jamie's been ill for most of the day, but I forced her out for a little walk at a late hour, just so we could have some fun. To those who wonder what fun two people can have outside when it's dark and quiet, I respond thusly: I Spy.

Here, let's try it now, just you readers and me.


Yes, there's a pizza around the bus stop. We walked out of the house with a pizza that was surplus to requirements (when I order pizza in, the companies never seem to remember me consistently saying that I don't want pureé) and arranged it elegantly around the stop, just to see what'll happen to it over time.

I expect the offending item to be gone within 24 hours. It's like the Stinkymeat experiments, but blatantly on display. I'm hopeful it could be taken as an art piece, or taken and eaten by the foxes in the area. Either way, I'd be proud.

We also shot-putted ice cream into a bath tub. I think I win on the 'having a better evening than you' challenge.

Tomorrow/today in six hours' time may become a manic day. We have plans, foolhardy plans. It'd involve waking up earlier than usual, heading into London just to watch a film before we cannot watch it again, wandering around London, coming home for a bit, resting, heading off to work and coming home without feeling tired or cranky. Personally can't see it happening, but it's a nice pipe dream to have.

Man. I need your creativity. My brilliant ideas for fun usually involve the library somehow.

... not dissin' on the library at all, though!

Dick and Dom, kids' TV presenters, have a great idea for a game in a populated yet quiet area. The name of the game is Bogeys.

The object of the game is that one at a time, people whisper/say/shout "Bogeys!". Nothing else to it.

Each person has to out-bogey the last person until you're shouting "BOGEYS!" as loud as you can behind a frumpy old receptionist and running for it.

Last person to say something before you're kicked out wins.

Peurile yet horribly amusing to watch on television - it looks like something you have to start doing in your 30s to remind you that you don't have to grow up entirely.

1st thought: That looks like a floating lollipop!
2nd thought: What's that underneath it?
3rd thought: It really looks like a lollipop!

I think it's a lovely addition to the scenery.

Good luck with your crazy plan! :)

It's a lovely temporary bus stop!

Already noticed one was stolen a few weeks ago. They're quite desirable to the average student, I suppose!

I'm quietly confident about the new series, apparently they're taking a "How 2" style with it, which means they can be a bit more flexible.

I assumed from the trailer it might be a bit like Tomorrow's World. Either way, that works okay - short stints on lots of bits and bobs, then.

I'm looking forward to look around you, i only got introduced to the original over the summer when the boi showed me the DVD :) My family only saw said dvd at christmas!
Mwahahaha thats a great idea with the bus stop XD

btw, from here that pizza looks like a pancake XD

On man, you should hunt down the person that put the pizza there. That could win the Turner Art Prize.

I did it - it was one of those pizzas that had puree on when I told the company making it several times not to put puree on it, and it was a pizza nobody else in the house was willing to eat.

I was thinking about the acclaim I could achieve when I did what I did. Alas, the pizza's gone now - some kids must have dared each other to eat it or some foxes found it or somesuch.

I prefer the image of old ladies tucking into it while they waited for their bus.

Let me be your agent, kid, you could be going places.

It would have been even funier if you made a trail that led to the sewers.

Very creative. Whats more shocking was NO alcohol was involved.....right?
