Urgent appeal?
Each time I go into my kitchen - no matter the time of day - there it is.

Cue the sad music - on violin;

This, is an urgent appeal from feed the cats.

Train Companies
Practically all of the longer distance train operators out there offer cheap tickets - £10 from Leeds to London for example, or £3 from Leeds to Manchester - or first class tickets for around 5% more than a standard class ticket on certain services - these are called 'advanced' fares, which basically means they're selling empty seats - or if you're traveling on Cross Country, floor space, on specific services.

If you can purchase said tickets for both your outward and return journey, it makes sense.

But, if you purchase an advance fare one way, and an 'open single' the other, ('Open single' being a normal train ticket, which you can use to travel on any service, with or without a reservation) then you're probably paying £10 more than what it would cost you for an open return, which is usually either the same price or £1 or so more than the 'open single'.

No wonder ticket pricing is harder to understand than the signaling system around London Kings Cross.

» Worst Person for the Job

David Cameron and George Osbourne are in the wrong job when they said that their job was going to be to recover the economy.

That and Mrs.S from our local Co-op. She's been working there for years and she still doesn't know how to work the lottery machine, never smiles, and still hasn't got her around the concept that if there are more than three people in the queue that she's supposed to call for assistance.

35mm Anyone?
When I studied my AS in Photography around 5/6 years ago, we used 35mm cameras, and ever since I've just loved shooting on them because of their manual nature. It wasn't until the start of this year I bought myself a Praktica BCA, which I kid you not, is as old as I am!

Thing is when I get my photos developed it takes around a week, and when I get them back they're on CD, which is kinda cheating - because I miss not being able to develop the negatives and photos personally.

» Insults

aka Coventry, is full of people who have somewhat of a Gladiator approach to driving.

Get in the way - i.e cross the road, at the pedestrian crossing, when it's red and clear for you to cross - and some people are so pissed that you've made them stopped they shout at you.

I've lived here two years now, and I can safely say that people in Cov love violence. Had to film Cov City Games at the Ricoh as part of my course, and the only time Cov fans cheer is when one of the Cov players does something violent...that win against Man U must have been a bloodbath.
