no time to go to the movies

Or go shopping for Tank Girl Boots, or watch Black Books, or finish my Annual Report.timekeeper On the way to the busstop I noticed my watch had lost three minutes again and wrote up the rest of what I was thinking on the bus, in the tiny sketchpad. I'd work it up into some proper artwork but I just don't have the time. Some of the time I didn't have I spent watching Shaun of the Dead, and after that we went to a pub, because we had to. We tried to go to The Grapes, because that seemed pretty defensible, but there wasn't any space (full of zombies already) and it smelt really nasty, so we wound up at the usual. It was great, of course (the movie, not the pub) but you knew that. And we got a decent selection of music played beforehand and the extra long Van Helsing trailer. Growl!

Work didn't go so well, report writing just making me feel sort of matt-black-flat-pack (be depressed, be desired), but on the bright side while trying to look up a good link for green growing things I found that someone has invented concrete you can plant trees on.

Concrete to grow with
That is fantastic!

Thinking on it, I should be surprised that the Japanese came up with it ... the Japanese have become increasingly keen to 'green' their concrete metropoli - in a bid to reduce the urban 'heat island' effect ... particularly nasty in Tokyo summers.


re: time - have you thought about pocket watches? I made the switch after disatisfaction with those 'handcuffs.' My uber-cool night-glo Eddie Bauer model kept failing on me, even after battery replacement - so have returned to the tried & true cheap-o Russian-knock-off wind-up variety. It serves me well, and I make a habit of winding it up every morning.

Re: Concrete to grow with
I was impressed (with the concrete) -- I had a pocket watch for a while, but it eventually broke, in just the same way as my wrist watches used to -- probably the stress of being pulled in and out of poorly-designed pockets. Not all my clothes have pockets, either -- it's a girl thing.

Re: Concrete to grow with
Well lack of pockets needn't be a deterrent if you're up for lots of chains thing.:-)
