# I had this idea for a project (no politics involved)


We get a bunch of happy pictures and make some A3/A4 posters, asking folks to cheer up. Just a bit.

Then we go up and down our local High St asking shop owners and managers if we can put a happy poster in their window.

If you wanted to get Gormanesuqe about it, you could map out which stores are happy and which aren't, and then set up a town-by-town happiness index, but I digress....

1. What do you think? Sound like fun?
2. Does anybody have any deliriously happy 'shops that they wouldn't mind sharing this way?


[edit] OK, give me a few days to make a home for it and we can start building some posters next week.

# 1 minute to go
until 5:30pm I saw this. I just had time to knock up 2 quick copies of it before 5:30 - (slurfers HAVE to leave work at 5:30, not a second later!)

First up - Blockbuster:

and then the 2nd one? Well, this poor van driver HAD to have it:
