World Mouse Clicking Championship
I've got a couple of particularly nasty point'n'click adventures lined up for you soon that I've been holding off on posting as they're so evil, so in the meantime you better brush up on your clicking prowess in the World Mouse Clicking Championship. I got a top score of 68 since you ask (and that was on my X40).

The Cat Came Back
I remember watching the original Canadian animation for this on television and it's a classic. "The cat came back, he thought it was a goner, but the cat came back because it wouldn't stay away.". You'll sing-a-long to this tale of a feline with boomerang-like qualities.

Banghra Groove
Banghra Groove trys to be cool with some funky Indian beats and some Gilliam-esque animation. But as I say the phrase "Banghra Groove" to myself, all I can actually hear is "Byker Grove". Whey Aye Man.

Taba Express
Batten down the hatches. Insane techno manga flash animation alert! The audio equivelent of 5 double espressos with a Red Bull chaser - you will not sleep tonight.

Dog Judo
While I eagerly await web sites for Cat Karate and Terrapin Tae Kwon Do my love of animal martial arts will have to be satisfied by Dog Judo. Er...obviously.

O' Christmas Tree
Some people say to me "why haven't you posted any links for so long", and I reply "because I'm sooo lazy - the clue is there in the domain name". Anyway despite a week off work I haven't caught up with any of the linking, photo processing or coding I was meant to, but have spent it all chilling out. I'd say sorry but I'm not. I feel much better for it, thank you.

One thing I did manage to do in my week off was erect the lazylaces Christmas Tree, which for the more observant of you may look familiar. Yes - it's exactly the same tree as last year - I spurn real trees for plastic tree goodness. The really observant among you may notice that this year it is situated on the otherside of my living room - it's this kind of detail that really spices up my life.

Meanwhile the photos of me in black tie at my awards ceremony lurk on my hard drive waiting to be commented upon. When I buck up a bit they'll be on-line too. I know some of you (well one of you anyway) waits with baited breath.

First Christmas game of the year for the 'laces, but what the heck, it's the 1st of December, we're allowed aren't we? PandaGolf is a weird little mini-golf/platform game hybrid with a Christmas twist from the same people who brought you PandAventure.

Okay this is one of those circular e-mail things that I'm sure you've all got by now, but because I can't be bothered to forward my replies onto a gazillion firends I'm going to write all my answers here and I'll let you do yours in the comments or e-mail them to me if you're all prissy and private. The idea is you take the questions and post your personal responses to a bunch of people (you can know your friends too). Anyway here they are with my replies:

What time did you get up this morning?
Alarm got me up at 04.55, a couple of snoozes later I got up at 5.30.

Diamonds or pearls?
Diamonds (bit of a girly one this I thought, my jewellery actually consists of a steel watch and that's it).

What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
I really can't remember, it's been far too long since I went to the cinema. The last film I watched was School Of Rock which I highly recommend.

What is your favourite TV show?
At the moment it would be Spooks or West Wing.

What did you have for breakfast?
Black coffee, no sugar. Multiplied by 3.

What is your middle name?
Fascinating fact #1 - I have no middle name.

What is your favourite cuisine?
Pizza. Domino's to be precise. You might not think they are cuisine. I know they deliver. I win.

What food do you dislike?
Brie. Don't ask. It sends shivers down my spine just looking at the stuff.

What is your favourite crisp flavour?
Golden Wonder sausage and tomato. They're damn hard to track down though.

What is your favourite CD?
Big Calm by Morcheeba is an all time favourite. I'm currently listening to Jamie Cullum, Snow Patrol and The White Stripes though.

What kind of car do you drive?
Mini Coop.

In men/women what characteristic do you look for?
Just that I like/get on with them. Most people would agree I don't have a 'type'. Especially at the moment when I'm a sad singleton.

Favourite sandwich?
On a friday/weekend/bad day it would have to be bacon (hot). Any other day of the week Pret chicken caesar.

Favourite item of clothing?
G Star jeans that are 5 years old if they're a day.

If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation where would you go?
Cape Town. When I was in South Africa everyone insisted I had to go there but I never did.

Where would you retire to?
The Somerset countryside just outside Bristol. Great memories.

Favourite time of the day?
Early summer morning in London by the Thames. Sometimes it can take a long time to walk to work.

What was your most memorable birthday?
21st - also the most unmemorable - you know what I'm saying.

Favourite sport to watch?
Sunday village green cricket. As long as there's a village pub.

Who do you least expect to send this back to you?
Any relation of mine.

Person you expect to send it back first?
Daisy - except I think she might have posted something similar a while back.

What fabric detergent do you use?
Tesco Colour.

If you could choose any animal as a pet what would it be?
I'm not to be trusted with pets.

Are you a morning person or a night owl?
A little bit of both, but I definately get more work done in the morning.

Favourite alcoholic beverage?
Laurent Perrier or a Mojito if I'm feeling flash, a London Pride otherwise.

Do you have any pets?
1 fake cat. It's quite realistic.

Any new and exciting news you would like to share with your friends?
A project I did most of the development work for has been nominated for an award.

What did you want to be when you were little?
A train driver if I remember rightly. You wouldn't believe how much I hate trains now I commute every day though.

What are you meant to be doing today?
Working about 11 hours on 3 different projects. I have a week off starting on Friday though.

Can you torque the talk with tork? Breaking with tradition (ha ha) I'm posting a point'n'click game I haven't completed yet, or even understood ;o) This is sooo cute though and the idea seems great. Try and understand the aliens' languages to escape the planet. People cleverer than me (ie most of you) post helpful hints in the comments, people denser than me (anyone?) ask for help - I'll be joining you when I get time to play [ta tabby].

Gym Class
Ok guys, listen up! Today we're going to be learning all four basic strokes of may think this quicktime movie is a little dull if you quit out of it within the first 1min 20sec, but if you persist you'll see it for the work of genius it is [at olde english].
