Hurrah for Friday! It's full of stuff. And things. I dusted off the old shuffle this morning, in a spirit of penance. In an hour, it had loaded 37 tracks, and I ejected it IN DESPAIR. It was enough to get me into work, though, even if I (bah!) don't know what I was listening to as I loaded it off the newly-added list. On the way into work I saw a really good crow. It looked at me, from the gravestone it had hopped up onto, decided I was still too close, and hopped onto another, then another and cawed. If you're not cheerful at that news, try this:

I found this thing in the covered market pershop: race track for hamsters!


Hamtrac! Let the good times roll!

It would be perfect if only there were two tracks for racing.

Two tracks + a rail
That is totally awesome! I'm also confronted with the problem of getting two racing hamsters to race in the same direction. Borrowing an idea from the greyhound track, perhaps the device would also require an electrical-powered rail to move a food-item along for the hamsters to chase?

Yes, and tiny scythe blades to strap to the knees of the 'bad' hamster, like in Ben-Hur.

And a chicane.

(FYI I told the people at work I knew of a "2850" SMS service, only for beer)

!!!!! and does that mean I get to charge you a flat fee of £1.50 given that I knew the answer?
