The comic that shouldn't be my sort of thing (young adult, fantasy, American Ghibli-inspired manga, chalk-and-cheese pairing of a grumpy zombie and an annoying little girl with a tail) and yet... is unsoundedcomic. Read from the beginning (of a chapter, if you can't stand to do the whole thing).

That thing timscience and I are doing on our wedding anniversary this year is staying one night in a room for London, a tiny boat perched atop the South Bank designed in collaboration with the artist Fiona Banner. It has a tiny octagonal library! We have to turn up early for a Safety Briefing! There are performances from the room, too (Laurie Anderson's playing it in March).

Madam Fatal, the golden age transvestite superhero who features in the latest issue of Shade (in rather more, uh, endowed guise than in his original little-old-lady incarnation). Retired character actor, originally appeared in Crack Comics, has a pet parrot called Hamlet. Whoever next? I'm hoping for The Owl and his ultrasonically controlled robot Owlos and his ga-ga ray emitting Owl Gun (makes people act like owls, apparently, I don't know, is that useful?).

Room for London! I didn't know about it until now. What a wonderful thing to do.

initially he told us lies
We found out about it by wandering past, spotting it up on the roof, heading up the concrete stairs to see if we could get a closer look, finding a temporary Christmas roof garden and asking an elf what on earth the little boat was.

Re: initially he told us lies
It looks incredible. I feel quite jealous!

There are still plenty of competition places left and the competition is somewhat in your market area -- utopian ideas for civic improvement. Perhaps one to do on work time (judging by my follow-furry it may be worth it for the retweets alone)
