It is somewhat foggy today. So I went out and took a bunch of pictures. That’s just a few of them – the rest are on my flickr page. The link is in the sidebar.

It was seriously cold out there, so after about 10 minutes my hands were numb, and even my camera was icy. It was also very quiet. Apart from the constant noise of traffic from the motorway over the other side of the field, it was silent. All that could be heard was the rustle of squirrels and rabbits in the leaves. I tried taking a picture of one of the squirrels, but it ran up a tree and disappeared.

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour

I’ve become somewhat obsessed with this song. The singer was on Never Mind the Buzzcocks last night. Their other songs are pretty decent, too.

The Tastiest Accident Ever

(from news.bbc.co.uk)


Part of the M42 is shut after a six-vehicle crash sent marshmallows and beer spilling out onto the carriageway.

The northbound stretch was closed at junctions 10 and 11, near Tamworth Services, after several lorries and a van collided at about 0400 GMT.

I just love the idea of a truck full of marshmallows.

Yeah, I spent twenty minutes drawing this.

It’s probably due to another one of those bizarre European laws (hello, bent vegetables), but these seeds I bought today provided a good ten seconds of amusement.

For the blind:

Ingredients: pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pine nuts
Allergens: contains pine nuts
Packed in a factory where nuts (including peanuts) and seeds are processed

I love food labelling regulations.
