I do, on occasion, leave the seclusion of Palace Meadows. And when I do, it is to find with great disappointment that the blood baths are closed. Well there go MY plans for the weekend!
I’ve been looking for new hairstyles because I am SO bored with my current hair, and I stumbled across these street portraits on Flickr. I love the idea of snapshots of the anonymous crowd that surround us every day
Oh noes! Tea is getting more expensive! I do love how people drink MORE tea in a recession though, not less. Well, we all know the British will be drinking tea on judgement day
Are you a spotify or last.fm? Me, I love spotify. For some reason, I never got into last.fm – perhaps because I’d think I’d find a song I liked, but it was only a thirty second preview. I’ve yet to fail to find an artist on spotify. It also seems slightly more robust that the browser-based last.fm The adds aren’t too bad at the moment either
New Day of the Triffids. With Dougray Scott, Eddie Izzard, Brian Cox and Jason Priestley. Yum.

Fanboys – I don’t know why I laughed, but I did. God help me, but I did
The Soloist – so I’m a Robert Downey Jr. junky. Can you blame me? (And this also looks like a good movie)
