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"

AFAIK, there's only one supplier of live reindeer in the UK & would like to reassure folks that these are happy reindeer. No-one would take a resentful animal with big horns into a public place, after all. :)
If I'm right, they live the rest of the year in the Cairngorms they are free-ranging but come when called & are hand-fed daily, often by quite large groups of people. They also spend time in pens near the visitor centre if they're recovering from injury, having a difficult pregnancy, etc... these are some of the most pro-social reindeer on the planet. They start travelling in a small way as young adults & by the time they're doing shopping centres & panto they're old hands. There's a large enough herd that those who don't take to it don't go travelling. Reindeer are far more domesticated than UK deer species in any case...
You can visit the herd if you're ever near Fort William & check out their travelling arrangements etc; the owners are very open about how they do things; nobody wants to be accused of abusing Rudloph, after all... ;)
Hope this restores the magic of xmas somewhat... ;)

Ooer, sorry, did go on a bit... I was just so relieved when I found out how they really are treated. Tend to assume everyone else wants same level of detail. :)

I love the angle of this shot. It's like a whodunnit (with reindeer).

like a lifesize game of cluedo - it was father christmas, in the reindeer pen, with erm, the antlers!
