I got 7 slices of bacon in my 6 slice packet yesterday, free is good, bacon is also good.

Standing at the corner when a cyclist pulled up and waited at the lights.  i remember when i used to cycle.  loved it, i remember flying down this very same hill where i'm standing overtaking cars and ploughing head first through red lights.  i remember having a bike like that, a hybrid, a hybrid with black pannier rack, continental road tyres, sprayed black, wait.  that IS my bike!!! and it's gone down the hill.  every bike i've owned has been stolen, that was my favourite, i sprayed it black so people wouldn't know it was expensive, so they might be less inclined to steal it...

I keep noticing the lights on during the day. when i point it out to people they tend to look at me with indifference, like being offered a salad when you're drunk.

finding it hard to look your television in the eye? i recommend three recent films 'music within' (2007) a true story about fighting for equal rights, an excellent soundtrack, mellow directional style and good humour. the second 'definitely maybe' (2008) an american romantic comedy, certainly not my first genre of choice, but this is a great example, heart warming and intelligent. the third 'franklyn' (2008) is a jigsaw puzzle of a movie that chops between stories and perspective to fantastic effect, very strange at first, but more than worth the perseverance. nice when a director doesn't try to ram a story down your throat i think.
