LOOK! LOOK! LOOK There is a Playstation 2 going for a song on Ebay! Starting at 160 quid with some amazing games… Get your bids in early…
The New York Sun article I just found is really really scary. Basically it’s a direct attack on any American’s freedom of speech….
Have you had a creme egg yet this year? I doubt you have. This is why I propose you go out and buy one and spread the wealth a little.
Buy a creme egg, ask the next person in the street you see if they have had a creme egg this calendar year (- why is it spelt creme and not cream) – if they reply in the negative, lob the wrapped egg at them and continue walking. This way everyone will eat an egg very soon.
This is exactly what I did to two unsuspecting passers by on Friday night having purchased said egg from a 24 hour garage. Obviously I missed out on consuming it myself but I made somebody’s night (well maybe not…)
Oh yeah, I reckon i’ve had 10 so far this year. You only need to be generous once!
PS It’s not really a challenge…
Found this strange cover of a flaming lips track on the web, no idea who it’s by.
Update (12:45) : Due to contractual difficulties with my housemate, I have been asked to remove the offending material. A re-recording will be posted once legal technicalities have been resolved.
