1. What was the last TV show you watched?
The first of the new series of Will and Grace
- they're back and better than ever.
2. What was the last thing you complained about? Micro$oft Word. It destroyed a 64 page document (including my saved copy) I was working on this morning meaning I had to start again. It made me so happy - it's not like I'm the world's biggest fan of documentation as it is. At home I use Open Office which I would encourage everyone to use instead off bloody Micro$oft Office.
3. Who was the last person you complimented and what did you say? My friend Jules. I called her a bitch via text message. Hmmm...on second thoughts perhaps that doesn't count. I did mean it affectionately. Honest.
4. What was the last thing you threw away? The pile of junk mail waiting for me when I got home from work today. I did a similar thing with 128 spam messages sitting in one of my hotmail accounts yesterday.
5. What was the last website that you visited? Chasing Daisy having followed Daisy's comments on my conversation with Manly Smell. Just before that I was living in dream land at Apple - drooling over a Power Mac.
A guide - originally intended for Japanese vistors - on how to survive everyday life in England - but it works and is useful for any nationality. Even for a Brit like me it points out some fabulous home truths. I've linked to the pub crawl
page as this rang very true indeed. Spot on.
It might seem like another ordinary day stuck in the office - but beware it can all go horribly wrong when office supplies attack. This photo gallery captures some of the more gory moments - although it doesn't touch MS Word's treatment - and subsequent total trashing - of a 64 page document I was writing today.
The other week I posted
the NASA picture of London at night
and now - thanks to the manly smell
of a pipe - I've found this flash version

I haven't seen much that's caught my eye recently to post here (please someone send me some deranged flashness) but of course thinking you have to say something
in a blog is a common misconception [blagged from iamadonut
I'm getting obsessed with Wi-Fi to the point where a wireless network in the flat is becoming inevitable. Here's Wired
's beginners guide to becoming unwired which I'm sure will come in handy.
When stuffed animals attack the only way to stop them is with a water gun. Control Dexter is his bid the rid the home of the evil (stuffed) creatures in this cute little flash game.
Faster wireless computing with Wi-Fi Speed Spray ;o)
A very late Friday Five
but here it is none the less. Seems to be a celebrity theme this week:
1. Who is your favorite celebrity? I would have been totally lost for an answer on this one until a few days ago when I saw Minnie Driver on telelvision. She seemed so bright, intelligent and attractive; I'd love to bump into her in a London bar *cross fingers*.
2. Who is your least favorite?
Any of the so called "celebrities" associated with the BBC's Fame Academy. Words fail me when it comes to describing how dire this whole venture is. Argh!
3. Have you ever met or seen any celebrities in real life?
I hadn't seen any celebrities at all up until about a year ago but within the last twelve months I have shared a table with Tim Westwood at Wagamama in Wigmore St and been on the same flight from Manchester to London on one occasion with Andy Cole and another occasion with chef Gordon Ramsey.
4. Would you want to be famous? Why or why not? No. I can be quite outgoing - especially on-line - but at the end of the day I enjoy my privacy too much which would be an impossibility as a celebrity.
5. If you had to trade places with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose and why? I wouldn't mind being Michael Palin so I could try out some of his great travels but failing that any celebrity with a knowledge of where I could meet Minnie Driver for a drink would do ;o)
If there is a technology I am getting really excited about at the moment it's wi-fi
. I just love the possibilities. Trepia
lets you find wi-fi enabled bods near to you so you can create a roving community. Superb.
All those childhood years playing with Lego have left me vunerable to this kind of thing. Where's my credit card...
Photos of current Japanese street fashion. I'll say it once again: I will go to Japan someday.
