What’s this?

Myself and my friend Marlena noticed these pictures on the way to Portobello Market the other day. They are on the wall of The Parkside Clinic, W11. It strikes me as really weird because the clinic has always specialised in dealing with children’s counselling and these do not look like kid’s pictures – even if the clinic has generalised over the years, are they really going to put patient’s therapy pics on the walls?

The text says “please send more yellow birds for the day interior ______” and on the bottom by the root is RIP something, but again we couldn’t make it out :C

A mystery! I counted nine pictures last week, and no more have arrived(or been taken down) in the two visits I’ve paid since. If you have any clues or ideas, please let us know – and we will keep our eyes on it…

A little love…

Wow its a bit quiet around here isn’t it?

I guess that’s what happens in a big massive City with big massive problems, changes and responsibilities. Things get left till later, re-prioritised and eventually forgotten. :C

Poor Metroblogging London. We – I forgot about you. Im sorry. I was supposed to look after you, and instead I just had loads and loads of fun (and some studying) and I didn’t bother to bring you in.

Im a bad person. I promise to be better. I made you a twitter to make up for it ( I don’t think website’s like roses), and I promise to come and see you everyday… even if I didn’t do anything to tell you about, we will look for something together.

Don’t look at me like that… We always had Flickr. We’ve had sixish years together now… We can make this better again.

Its time for Conga Conga !!!

………From the bringers of the Undie 500, International Optimism Day , and Happy Wednesdays

Group aim to set new “Conga Line World Record” in support of Red Nose Day
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 @ –
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…


The Optimists Society, is a social-action group promoting positivity and helping people make a difference to themselves and others through simple actions.

Engrish, as spoken in Dalston

So – I took this pic of a pair of jeans in the window of a clothes shop in Dalston.



One gets used to seeing mangled English on T shirts and jackets of cute Japanese tourists.

But what local English-speaking person would want to be seen wearing this load of bollocks? You’d do better to print out some Spam and wear that instead.


How gross… theres even some hairs stuck in it!

Gynecological Christmas Decorations

It’s well past 12th night, so I probably shouldn’t be talking about Christmas decorations at all, but I can’t resist posting this pic of the lovely lights that were up in Regents St.

Is it just me, or is there something a trifle… uterine… about the design?

Love on the Line

Saw this on the road near where I live:

road paint love heart

Don’t ask me why I was examining the white lines on the road. I just notice odd things.

Isn’t it just the most perfect little road-paint-blob love heart?

I *heart* N16! Or does N16 *heart* me?
