If you happened to be looking at the live webcam from the Baltic this afternoon you might have seen being part of the exhibit. The Quayside was buzzing and the atmosphere was great - I tried out the new bus service from the top of the town to the Quays and it's really good.

Looking at the entries recently I think I shall write a program that randomly grabs a link and tags it with either Hmmm, Odd, Excellent or Good Grief, and then intersperses those with random musings about nothing at all. Like this one. Which might have been generated by a program. For all you know. And for the record I like artichokes, chillies, olives and mushrooms on my pizza. And please note that my ban on all things meat and fish is a default and personal : you want to eat dead stuff on a pizza then fine. The ban on pineapple and smoked cheese (and possibly peanuts) is however binding on everyone, and those who break will be doomed for ever to reading live journal pages written by goths who like Hello Kitty.

Reading Lynn's comments in the Pizza thread, let me add Peanuts to my list of banned toppings (and of course all varieties of meat and fish are banned by default). I am not a fan of the peanut, though I appreciate that it is a food embedded deep into westpondic culture and so might well go down well there. I am not at allsure either about eggs - I once had a pizza that had had an egg cracked onto it before being placed in the oven. It was odd, and may be someone's regional speciality as the place was certainly run by Italians - it may even have been in Italy, though I think that it was probably Germany.

Unskilled and unaware "In 1995, McArthur Wheeler walked into two Pittsburgh banks and robbed them in broad daylight, with no visible attempt at disguise. He was arrested later that night, less than an hour after videotapes of him taken from surveillance cameras were broadcast on the 11 o'clock news. When police later showed him the surveillance tapes, Mr. Wheeler stared in incredulity. "But I wore the juice," he mumbled. Apparently, Mr. Wheeler was under the impression that rubbing one's face with lemon juice rendered it invisible to videotape cameras"

Blair was exceptionally creepy today, all weird pauses and concerned eyes. Ken Livingstone's speech on the other hand was excellent, fluent and genuinely felt.

Good to see the EU kicked out software patents again, though they will return in another form as the undead always do. Bad to see that London got the Olympics : we'll be paying for it in taxes for the next 100 years and it will benefit nobody except the construction industry. It's a curse and we should have let the French have it.
