Warmth

It's no kind of weather to be stuck in front of a PC.. ah - that's a lie. If your PC happens to be in the fridge, or in Antarctica/Aberdeenshire, you're on a winner. Mine is on the ground floor of the house, so I'm OK, although my bed (where I should really be going now) isn't. In fact, it's about ten degrees cooler outside than it is on the top floor, but I don't want to come a-cropper.

During my weekend down on the South Coast, I attended a shindig, during which the subject of bizarre websites came up. As I was a little iniebriated at
the time, I have since forgotten many of the rather odd topics (isn't that why blogs exist - to highlight the 'all human life is here' facet of the wonderful internet) but one sticks in my mind. Don't try this at home (best to visit someone else's house) but much fun may be had at the expense of a humble kitchen microwave.

Evidence of this may be found here (worthy of a "Good heavens" at least) and - even scarier, here.

My brother-in-law, Rob sent me the latest in the "Dismount" collection. If you haven't seen it, there's a good couple of hours (!) of entertainingment to be had either in pushing a computer generated man down some stairs or driving a lorry into a wall for maximum measured damage. This particular blog is turning into a catalogue of things not to try at home, isn't it?

At least there are no sites on "do it yourself taxidermy" ... or are there? Yes. Woo.

No limbs left after all that? Want a safer hobby? Why not become a voice-over artist? I went on a new-fangled train today, and heard the voice of the railways (and plenty of other places)... who is she? She's Emma Clarke and she's fab. Once you've listened to her samples, you'll hear her everywhere.

Back to work tomorrow, so I'd best get to bed.
