a nice random image to get you started:

i now have a FLICKR page too!

"why would a reviewer make the point of saying someone's *not* a genius? do you especially think i'm *not* a genius? you didn't even have to think about it, did you?"

"monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey.”

"i am secretly afraid of animals.... i think it is because of the usness in their eyes, with the underlying not-usness which belies it, and is so tragic a reminder of the lost age when we human beings branched off and left them: left them to eternal inarticulateness and slavery. why? their eyes seem to ask us."

"we've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of shakespeare. thanks to the internet, we now know this is not true..."

african monkey proverb: "the day the monkey is destined to die, all the trees get slippery."

"i'll buy a bunch of monkeys, dress them up, and make them re-enact the civil war"

i went to the old duke last night with my dad, who some of you will know as
mr P, and we watched some excellent music by a band called sheelanagig.

then, because mr P was pissed, we went to his hotel and had another beer in the creepy bar, with a white piano

i took a very unflattering picture of him early on, and he deleted it from my phone.

plus i think he was a little put off by the fact that every time i took a picture i shouted 'thats going on the internet!'

20th Oct 2006, 09:40

20th Oct 2006, 09:42

Geodyne says:

Dhamaka NLI & about to do some work says:

That (first) place looks like a great laugh!

21st Oct 2006, 09:42

Maggie D: "bought me a copper turtle" - is this some kind of euphemism i know nothing about?

21st Oct 2006, 13:37

paintist says:

nope its just a courting ritual, made possible by everyone being very drunk and there being a man in the pub using stripped electical wire to make....well, copper turtles apparently :-)

21st Oct 2006, 13:47

i think i need to qualify this - i thought she was offering it to us for sale, and i was going to give the copper turtle to dad, but then she demanded it back, and i thought it more prudent just to give up and give it to her than cause an argument over the ownership of a copper turtle.

the man also makes bicycles out of wire.
