Robot Games
Sometimes I like to walk about the house and refer to objects/people in the manner of an alien robot unfamiliar with its surroundings ...

Sometime it's fun to throw in a joke one every now and again - my current favourite is refering to milk as Bovine Boob-Juice

The Garden of Earthly Delights
In an effort to give me something to answer the endless 'But why?' questions that children ask, my mum bought me an encyclopedia. In it was a picture of the 'Garden of Earthly Delights' by Bosch (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6d/The_Garden_of_Earthly_Delights_by_Bosch_High_Resolution.jpg).

As a small child the third section scared the bejeesus out of me. a personal highlight is the guy getting swalowed whole by a bird, whilst birds fly out his arse.

My friend Jim ...
Is a Christian. He was always very tolerant of the rest of us not being so, which was appreciated as no one likes to be preached at - specially if you don't care.

One year, he was taken very ill at christmas. We had been told through the grape vine that he was in a very bad way, and that his family were holding a prayer service.

"bugger - he must be pretty friggin ill if prayer is the only thing left for him - we better go round and see whats going on"

The next 2 hours were the most uncomfortable of my life - listening to people criticise the doctors and nurses in favour of god's cure, various family friends egged on by the displays of others, trying to outdo each other in their speaking of tongues. Don't get me wrong - it was touching to see how people were upset by his illness ... but it was very very odd. The only good news came from someone accidentally complaining that they couldn't see him properly because there were too many doctors in his room.

He was fine in a few weeks - and when we saw him next, the first thing he said was 'thanks for going to my prayer service lads!' . we'd seen him in hospital on christmas day, but he appreciated the fact that i'd sat and listened to some guy pretend to be a conduit for voice of the almighty, that little bit more.

That day is now referred to as Jim's 'funeral'.

» My most treasured possession

Grandad's Train set
Im lucky enough that most of my relatives are still alive, so there are few heirlooms in my possesion - but the one I do have is my Grandad's train set.

He died when I was about 4, so I dont really have any memories of him, but when he died my nan insisted that I was to have his train set, due to the fact that I spent most of the weekend sat with him watching his trains.

Always said I'd rebuild it but have never got round to it, which is pretty crappy of me actually.

would be a right old effort to save in a fire mind, its about 7 foot long. would probably take my Laptop too - for no other reason than it is new & shiny

» Phobias

Not me but a friend ...
... Feel I need to share this - A friend of mine is absolutely terified of Polystyrene.

Apparently the sound it makes when you twist and break it is the worst thing in the world - a fact which was abused often as teenagers, and led to a very disappointing christmas day when his dad refused to remove the playstation from its box because he was being 'a Pansy'.
