Finally! Recognition! This blog, or if you're reading the feed, the blog at is now banned on my company network as being unsuitable for workplace consumption. I feel like I've arrived. Actually, it's probably just anything on - visits for last week totalled, um, 5.
Meanwhile, Garlik, a service the BBC reported on a while back for finding out how vulenrable you were to ID theft, claims to have found me on the net, with "relationships with 1710 people." and "connected to 232 companies or organisations" Oh how widespread knowledge of me must be!
But none of them are actually me. After much effort, Garlik has found two pages of my photo gallery, a site which has been up for 6 months, and hasn't found me on facebook, MySpace, this blog or anywhere else where I have a public profile with my name on. Not very impressive - and at some point they'll be charging for this. So as a review - 3 stars - the credit check's handy.

Isn't she lovely

As I've mentioned before, one of the nice bits about public transport is the wide range of people who use it.
My usual mode of travelling is squeezed between two overweight men in suits or opposite a basketball player who is unable to bend their legs. However this evening, a vision of beauty sat down opposite me. The kind of woman who turns heads in the street. One who walks past you and causes you to stop your conversation mid-sentence, unable to regain your train of thought. Someone who causes everyone in the carriage to sneek admiring glances at. And someone who knows that they look a million dollars, and spends time each morning ensuring that this remains the case.

Yup, I'm still single. Don't think I got caught looking though.

Whilst scouring local bookshops for books on kiting (I can get it up, but lack control, and could do with improving my technique. Stop sniggering.), I discovered that according to Waterstones, Football Hooliganism is a sport.
Couldn't find any kite books, closest I got was a kitesurfing magazine. Now as I can't surf and can barely fly my kite safely, I thought this was unwise. Did discover magazines for everything else. 'Which Mountain?' magazine for climbers, 'Popular Deep Sea Angling', that sort of thing, as well as other titles where you can't really see the activity featured and magazine reading being compatible.

Roundabout route

Checking the service updates for my journey home (it took me ages to get in this morning, every other train was cancelled) I found the following info:
Line problem in the North Pole area.

Train services between Willesden Jn. High Level and Clapham Junction are being disrupted due to a points problem in the North Pole area.

Engineers are working as fast as possible to restore services to normal. Short notice alterations can be expected.

Tickets are being accepted on south west trains between Clapham Jcn and Richmond

Isn't the North Pole a bit off the beaten track? Is there not a more direct way?

Headline grabbing

Evening Standard board headline:

In David's head: Ken running towards fat cat train bosses, a bivalve held aloft in each hand screaming "AIIIEEEEEE!!"

I did a tour of gyms this evening. Five visits, and the most exercise I got was climbing up the stairs to one on the 3rd floor - whilst gym members, supposedly 'getting fit' took the lift... But I'll shift these damn marathon places if it's the last thing I do.

Shiny... new... broken?

Righto, the new thing is... another blog
But wait, it's got photos
And I've set myself a ridiculous challenge
A photo a day, every day, for a year

It's proving more difficult than It hought already... and I've broken WordPress [the software running said blog]. Twice.

Oh, a link. It's here -
