Optimists to raise money by dancing through central London

On Red Nose Day, Friday 13th March, a group of Optimists Society members will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for a Conga Line, by distance travelled. They’ll be doing it to raise money for Comic Relief, get some exercise, have fun and cheer up Londoners along the 17km route.

\Its not to late to take part mail James @ – james@eternaloptimist.net
The attempt has already been “accepted as a New Record Category” by Guinness World Records, who await details of a “Suitable Claim”. Society members will use Guinness standard rules for endurance dance routines. Bringing together a lead “Conga” and 10 team members to follow. Of course the public will also be welcome to join at the back wherever they like along the route.
The route takes in many of Londons top tourist sites. It will start in London Bridge, take in the sights of the Southbank, head past Comic Relief’s offices on Embankment then head up through Westminster into the Royal Parks, through St James Park, Green Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens turning down Notting Hill to Shepherds Bush, through the new Westfield Shopping Centre and ending at BBC Television Centre in the early evening. The proposed distance will be 17km. It will take an estimated 5 hours to complete. Though we might continue to conga into the night if people sponsor us to…

These lovely Community Support Officers agreed to have their picture taken with a rose given to them by The Optimists Society on Valentines day.

However when we asked them about how they felt about the New Anti-Terrorism 2008 acts, they had absolutely no idea what we were talking about.

Heh, nice picture though!

The Real London

Feeling Blue?

I got just the place for ya!

Today is Blue Monday, and considering yesterday was my birthday.. I know exactly what they mean.

Yes Boys and Girls. it is the worst day of the year! But lovely James and the Optimists Society (do you remember them?) have a cure.

Reclaimation of the most depressing day of the year will be taking place in various events and locations across the capital, with the main event being held at the Comedy Store. There you will find a laughter workshop. rumour has it there is SPACEHOPPERS, motivational seminar by the “The Gansta Motivator” that cannot be missed, as well a laughter workshops and laughter Yoga.

Did anyone else hear the alternative tube announcments at Hammersmith last night?

It was absolutely Hilarious!

I noticed something was up when the guy announced the "district line train on platform two, calling at all stations to Upminster with a U." Hmmmm...

Swiftly followed by "The next train on platform one will be the cockfosters train" and he giggled followed by some static.

This was my train. I was tired and figured I was hearing stuff. No one else seemed to have noticed anything.

Until... "Lay your bets ladies and gentlemen please"a doff and some static.

Now the people were paying attention. "On your right we have the Piccadilly line and on the left the District line in racing green"

You know Im giggling my head of now right? The people are just like staring...

*STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS -MIND THE DOORS PLEASE*

"and while the Piccadilly line is talking about it the District line is closing the doors taking the lead!!" doff doff.
So the train doors slam shut and as it accelerates out I just catch him...

"TOO BAD Piccadilly ... looooser!"

I wish they did it like that everyday....

Tube Map-o-rama

SPANK ACORN!

WOBBLY EMBRYO!!

WET MASH!!!

I was talking to some peeps last night, some of who hadn’t come across the famous (as I thought) London Anagram Tube map. It was a mini net sensation back in early 2006, before – believe it or not – it had to be taken down following threats from Transport for London’s lawyers. As if a humorous map of the tube is going to harm their public image!?

Whole sad story here (harms TFL’s image much more than some silly map)

Anyway, as we know, it’s impossible to get anything much taken down off the net by bully-boy tactics, and I found a version of the map after about 30 seconds googling web searching. Plus a load of other humorous and interesting variations on Harry Beck’s iconic and beautiful London Tube map.

Hopefully this post won’t call down dismal locust-like hordes of cold-hearted legal types.
