I can beleive it (pant)

Walking along the corridoor this morning a huge long-legged spider (looked almost too big to be native) eased itself round a door frame. Going up the stairs, I stepped over a huge bluebottle dead next to the stain from yesterday's tea spillage. Later, in a different corridoor I walk past a strikingly similar spider, this time dead. However, when I go upstairs again, the dead bluebottle has disappeared, but there's one of similarly intimidating size on the ceiling, alive. Looked like. Life and death in the wrong order.

Sanity briefly restored by soaking my hair and sitting by the fan. How much heat do we lose through the head, anyway? According to Google, it's 30%, or possibly 40%, 40-50%, or could be over 50%, up to 70%, 50-80%, or even X%.

The water from the cooler tastes of tin. Or maybe it's my mouth.

Stop what you're doing and play with this interactive kaleidoscope! Or don't, if you prefer. It's colourful.

I did stop what I was doing and played with the interactive kaleidoscope. I liked the way they gave instructions for printing and saving the picture. You never know when you'll need to decorate your bedroom with kaleidoscope pictures.

I spent a good ten minutes
trying to make Damien Hirst spin paintings.

Kaleidoscope doesn't seem to work on Safari. Will try it when I get to work.

er, yes ... I think it's a bit of an antique, in web terms
though that does mean it's zappy as all get out on my work machine

It didn't work on my mac at home either. But it's very cool.
