Saturday Afternoon, South Camden (PhotoBlog)

21 February 2009

After the fun and enjoyment of a Shoreditchy night out at Kill Your Pets and Trailertrash I needed a more relaxed Saturday. This involved wandering around the southern end of Camden Town, mostly, after a strong coffee at the Market (so strong the spoon stood up in it: see the picture).

F*cking Politicians

18 February 2009

So, apparently, politicians swear, what a shocker. First it was Boris, now it’s Peter…

Boris, apparently, said: “You … try and give the impression that I f****** tipped off David Cameron. You are trying to make me look like a f****** fool… This is such f****** bulls***”

…meanwhile the New Labour politician who was some time ago considered the cosmopolitan cappuccino-sipping New Labourite spluttered over his coffee when he heard the top brass of Starbucks rubbish the UK economy, and spurted out “Why should I have this guy running down the country? Who the f*ck is he? How the hell are they [Starbucks] doing?”

I’m not sure I know of anyone to whom the fact that politicians swear would be a shocker and, hey, we all let our guard down once in a while. Then again, maybe they’re spending too much time getting told to eff off by those foul-mouthed “white van men” as they persuade them to downsize their vans.

I have recently discovered the joys of iGoogle… being an avid Gmail user I am usually logged in to what they like to call my Google Account. I have, however, always been bemused by RSS feeds so clicking randomly on them I realised I could add feeds to a ‘Google Homepage’. I now have three pages (I am sure I will get more) one with my gmail and blogs I read quite regularly for personal or work reasons, feeds from newspapers or work journals and even my gmail and TfL updates… I no longer need to search through multiple websites each day, I get it all in one place!

I haven’t worked out yet, though, whether that means it’s time saving or whether sitting in front of it as I listen to Radio 4 with my coffee in the mornings means I’m wasting time when I should really be heading to work!
