Ever wondered which famous celebrity you most resemble? Yes, of course you have! So now help is on hand HERE (you'll need one full face picture).

After a shaky start of apparently closest resembling Bjork, I reset the gender button and now apparently I am 1) Ralph Fiennes, 2) Sean Connery, 3) Michael J Fox.

I think I can live with that!

Note to self...

.
Prawn, stop reading fecking LiveJournal and go and do something constructive.

Like, learn how to rollerblade.
Or start improving your German.
Or restore another Dinky lorry and sell it.
Or finish listing your ebay stuff.
(Or look for a real job).

In that order. Now. GO!!

Something for the weekend...?

.
”Hey kids, do y’wanna go to Badger Land this weekend?”
“Nah, we’re bored with Badger Land. If only there was some other vicious-hedgerow-animal-themed-Theme-Park we could go to.”



Stoat World! Come to Stoat World. It a day out full of stoats and weasels.
(sung to the theme tune of "Flintstones, meet the Flintstones etc)


Sick of badgers? Then come to Stoat World, it’s stoat-ally different!
Swim in the Stoat Moat!
Ride the Ferret Wheel!
Sail across the Stoating Lake!
Eat lunch in our 5-star Rest-stoat-rant!

Fun for all the family - don’t get in a state – get in a stoat!
Just off the A273 between Courtney Pine and Chorlton-cum-Wheely.





I think there is a piece of my brain missing today. Nurse? NURSE!

Zoinks & retribution

.
Zoinks!

Scooby Doo rocked like I knew it would - you can't go wrong with ghosts, monsters, an animated Great Dane and Sarah Michelle-Gellar in pink go-go boots, even Velma was dressed in a red PVC catsuit. Unfortunately, the movie was surprisingly a little heavy on the be-yourself / dont-wish-for-things-you-can't-have moralistic values for my liking, but oh well.


Retribution!

And I have derived a certain amount of satisfaction today selling some recently discovered fetish clothes on ebay that were left behind by an ex-girlfriend after we split up - it certainly recovers some of the many £££s that I pointlessly lavished on her spoilt, selfish and rather sizeable ass. More coffers to add to the Leipzig festival pot.

Another Tuesday...

.
...and another almost-but-not-quite-half-price-night at Odeon cinemas is upon us.

Now I know we are up against stiff competition from the Kill Bill 2 posse this evening but at the polar opposite end of the cinematic scale, if anyone fancies some animated-dog-and-that-bird-out-of-Buffy-fun tonight, we are going to see Scooby Doo 2 - yeah that's f--king right, I said Scooby Doo - so sue me!!!*

(* or we might chicken out and see Gothika instead)



UPDATE: expressions of interest via text might be preferable as I don't visit LJ very often.

UPDATE 2: Forgot to mention Holloway Road, 8-ish.

Hey, net people - HELP!!

.
Can anyone out there recommend from personal experience, a decent, reliable web-based email service provider with a good sized inbox? Preferably with a cool domain name. Oh yes... and FREE!

Sadly, Angelfire.com is closing down soon and I need to find something quick. I am trialling two other email accounts at the moment but on average the messages take somewhere between 12 hours and never to arrive.

Do you think that we could all get a group saver ticket to ride on this bandwagon?

.
Jeeez, I s'pose I might as well...


Ask me 3 questions, no more no less, about anything you want and I will answer it honestly (unless you are from the Tax Office or the Sussex Police). Then go to your own journal and copy & paste this allowing your friends (including myself) to ask you anything..


My god, I hope I find a job soon... :(

Favourite quotes of the day, so far...

.
George Bush on 9/11 memo:

I can categorically state that I was not and never have been aware of any intelligence in the White House.


From Radio 4 Today program on today's civil servant strike:

The Ministry of Statistics is among the departments affected by the strike. Unfortunately, we are unable to give you an idea of the numbers involved.

Introspection...

.
Sitting and holding your 96 year old grandma's hand and watching her slowly dying in front of you certainly focuses your thoughts about how ultimately pointless all of our lives are; what a short time we really have to try and make a difference and how we should not waste any of our energies on pointless activities or even more pointless people.

After saying goodbye to her for quite probably the last ever time, I decided whilst I was in the Reading area to pop in to Church of Madness, my old stomping ground with Helen et al from a couple of years back. Yesterday, had the added bonus of Psyche down from London filling the dee-jay slot but whilst I said hello to everyone that I once knew, it was perhaps not surprising that I did not really feel in a very socialable mood. Hopefully, my mood will lift (naturally or artificially, I don't care) before tonights party in Wimbledon.

Oh and some of my less employmentally-challenged friends have pointed out that due to some bloke being nailed to a cross a few years back we have a four day weekend to look forward to. Yay, go us!
