Elevators

In Saint Dénis, France, yes in Europe, a woman with not the quickest of minds or rather "problems of confusion" found herself stuck in an elevator. Stuck for three days! The 'concierge' or janitor as there also known (we are talking suburban Paris) didn't seems too concerned when learning that there might be someone stuck in there. So no fuss about when the repairman should get his toolbox and hurry up. Three day's! What if that was me, with a soar throat, a single sudoku book. I'd never be able to cope! Well that's the stairs for me from now on. I'd rather walk to the fifth floor. ...eh well... On second thought, maybe not.

Silver Surfer

I used to read comics. Spiderman and DareDevil were my favourites. But also Silver Surfer, especially when Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) doodled the character on to the page. A bit like when Frank Miller come with a alternative Batman treatment "The Dark Knight", which by the way has become one of the standard treatments. Moviewise Spiderman 1 is unmatched and DareDevil a bit of a disappointment. I haven't seen the Fantastic Four movie for the simple reason that it didn't seem to inspire me. My thoughts on that have now changed. The next Fantastic Four movie "Rise of the Silver Surfer" has now got me on the edge of my seat, the trailer looks so great. Now all I have to do is wait half a year, on the edge of my seat. Bugger.

What's the time again?

This time of year everything tends to get a little bit hazy. So if this Christmas you got a watch that doesn't have any dials you're kinda screwed for a month or so before you get the hang of the little bugger. Still pretty Blake's 7 though (I think that's cool, right?).

The Guilt Mug

If I would ever have a guilt inducing mug like this I'd keep in the back of my cupboard. Even if I would use it my mother would call me at the exact moment that I'd pick the thing up. "Hi mom, I was just thinking of calling you, no honest", I'd cry. To no avail of course.

Fashion victim

Going off on a trip? Going though airport security? Imagine placing your 'designer' man purse concealing a mobile phone in the Tupperware™ container for passing through the scanner.
You'll be shot in the head before you can say "Isn't this snazzy?"
