Em. What?

I’m sure most of you have heard of the tragic infanticide in France of the 8 babies. I was just reading about it there on Sky News which had the following to say about the womans husband:

“Her husband, a carpenter in his 40s, has been freed because there was not enough evidence to charge him. He denied knowing about the babies being born or killed”

I’m sorry, what? Is he blind? Did he not see she was pregnant? Or did he he just assume she got really fat and really thin really quickly…8 times?

Also one neighbor had this to say:

“These are attractive, helpful, polite and courteous people, who did nothing to make you think them capable of anything abnormal”

Ah yes. The first thing we think about when we hear about our murderous neighbors is how attractive they are

Fanny dreams

I’ve been learning quite a lot during my training here in London. Possibly the coolest thing I’ve learned so far – opening a fan (like those Spanish ones) with one hand. It’s cooler than smoking with Tom Cruise while wearing sunglasses.

Speaking of dreams, I went to see Inception. I think I enjoyed it. As Sandy in work said “Bit of a mind fuck”. It definitely has one of the coolest and most original actions sequences I’ve seen since this(at least the first minute of it).

Something I miss from home (apart from people obviously!!…*cough*) is Eddie Rockets. I did see one very similar though! I think it was called Rockets or something.

I bought a comic at the weekend called Red Son. Basically, it’s a what-if scenario about Superman, landing in Soviet Russia instead of USA. Instead of Truth and Justice for All, he is “…the Champion of the common worker who fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact”. Isn’t his costume cool?! Also stars Batmanakov

Not taking aim

I was half way through the first in my series of big rants (aimed at journalism for those who care) when I was like “God, I really can’t be bothered”. I’m in a happy place now, so I don’t really want to be giving out unless I absolutely have to (unlike journalists :P).

Let’s talk about other things. Poor Apple. The whole iPhone 4 debacle hasn’t done them any favors. Which is such a shame. I think it’s a really nifty phone. Lots of snazzy features. And it looks well slick. I want one. Screw it, I’ll hold it with my right hand. I’m right handed anyways. Steve was right. Just hold it a different way.

A man of brilliance

There are some amazing people in this world.

And then there’s Duncan Banatyne. Dare I say, a man as great as Richard O’ Kennedy? Quite possibly.

I do apologise for my lack of posts, I’ve been busy away in London. I WILL come up with something funny soon though. Or informative. OR both.
