My mobile contract allows me to make a couple of hundred free minutes of calls a month accross networks anytime - so what do I spend all my time doing? Texting at a few pence a pop, usually circa 20 quid's worth a month. Doh! So how could I resist the beeb

A new mathematical formula to predict the time of day when we will feel most tired...in the form of a cheesy flash quiz
. My typical day starts at 5am and finishes around 1am and quite frankly I'm knackered all the time, but apparently I'm most
knackered at 2 in the afternoon (I actually think this is quite accurate). The quiz is of course sponsored by those supporters of the terminally tired, pro plus
, who I can't recommend since I've been PP free since I left my final nightmare year of university. These days I prefer my regular caffine hit to be more entertaining in the form of endless cups of coffee. Espresso anyone?
Chilling out in the courtyard of The George
(it's owned by the National Trust
so you can pretend it's a cultural thing, not a drinking thing) last Friday we were approached by a roving troupe of young masseurs/masseuses. Eh? Some keen questioning revealed they were from urban chill
a rather cool new business venture that purveys 5 minute head & shoulder massages, either in your office if you give them a call, or in various nightspots around central London. Nice. The price? Whatever you think it's worth. An odd pricing scale, but cool none the less.
Several 5 minute massages later and my colleagues were even more relaxed than a few hours' worth of beer had already got them. For my part I got all shy claiming I thrived on stress (actually massages make me giggle). It's amazing what nonsense you come out with when you've had a bit to much to drink, not to mention the hidden truths that have a habit of slipping out. But therein lies a tale for another day...(or never).

I can't believe I haven't posted Tedi
before, I've had the link lurking around for positively ages, and I only unearthed it again when I was hunting around to see if chapter 11 of Ninjai
was out yet (it still
isn't!). He doesn't seem to do much, but I do love a good animated ninja teddybear, and playing around with the different music loops is pretty cool while he goes through his moves for you.
