waste more time

Ah, Planet Earth, latest cross-section of the natural world. Antigrav sharks! Organised dog packs! Snow leopard kittens! You missed it? No bother, it's repeated this Saturday. And, anyway, the BBC has put its spare footage up for download on their creative archive license. Arctic foxes! Badgers! Prehistoric whales!

Can't think what reminded me of googlefight. Still, it's always nice to see how easily George Orwell beats Aspidistra, Derek Jarman put in the corner by tasty fruit, tiny monkey effortlessly destroying rampaging elephant, and pause getting the drop on Pinter.

Mmm, Sheep game. I like split flock.

Margaret Atwood invents a robot pen so she can sign books from anywhere. "The pen can also be used to sign hockeysticks and the project director Matthew Gibson is working on getting it to sign basketballs".

A question: anyone else going to the UK Web and Minicomics Thing? Or fancies going down the pub somewhere nearby?

Good look with Fiend Findlay. Give him a two-fingered salute for me.

Re:.THING
If I'm not slumped staring at the wall with my soul in tatters and stuff, and it's not raining too hard, I might wander along.

Re: .THING
yaya! I might be hiding out in a local pub, whimpering (I think that's why we missed each other last year) do you have a mobile at the moment?

No money to spend, of course, but I like checking out panels, etc...

Think andyluke mentioned he was going, too.

Re: Thing
Brilliant -- I'm down for Fri, too, Andy R. and I plan to be in pub nearby ("just opposite?") talking shop ...

I should be at the Thing for a couple of hours - had to juggle a family commitment but it looks as though it'll work.

brilliant -- I shall be either at a nearby pub or on the Dead by Dawn stall (where I'm helping out) -- see you there

White bread beats brown bread.
This serves as a metaphor for both race relations and fibre consumption in our troubled modern era.

I'm going to see Gogol Bordello on Friday night and I have a cold at the moment, so what time I make it to the Thing will depend on how I feel on Saturday morning. But I should be there...
