My dabblings in editing HTML code (OK, not really I just deleted four numbers) and serif fonts can be found here:

i could knit that

Well done to Jean for actually doing some blogging. Now I've finished adjusting the banner PIXEL BY PIXEL until it's the right size, I might get some stuff written!

Group Texting and Other Ways to Make Contact

This is what I looked like between the ages of 11 and 17.
As you can imagine, I was a real hit generally.

Oh well look some of my old secondary school friends have caught up with me on Facebook - some of whom weren't so hot on the 6th Form Leavers' Prom coming out stunt I pulled.

Slightly hideous, slightly uncomfortable, mostly VERY AMUSING.

The internet truly does rock.

Pretty Boy

Charlize Theron, eh? I'd like to thank:

  1. My shapely eyebrows
  2. My comely manner

Also quite happy with Avram Hershko, winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. YEAH!

Doubly so Alizee, who sang 'Moi Lollita', possibly the best French song I have ever heard.

Fuck off HSBC, yeah?

Bloody arseholes blocked my card for taking the apparently fraudulent step of actually using it to buy something.

"Well £200 is a lot of money to spend online, Mr Sauntson, so we blocked the transaction to see if it was genuine. Did you go to ASDA last night?"

"Yes I did go to fucking ASDA, what is this? Nineteen-eighty-fucking-four? Now here's a fucking idea: FUCK OFF, stop monitoring my every move and let me buy a Wii. It's hard enough as it is you cunts."

"I notice you have a savings account with us Mr Sauntson - would you like a credit card?"


"Thanks for calling then."

Things I learned:

  1. No matter how much you've eaten, there's always room for a $2 hotdog.
  2. How to work out 20% of any bill really quickly.
  3. Americans tip too much.
  4. I want to work for the UN.
  5. I want to be in a Broadway musical.
  6. My little camera is in fact a bit shit.
  7. Hailing a yellow taxi DOES make you feel like you're in a film.
  8. I can go a week without knitting and not die or kill people.
  9. I'm not very good at spending every day with the same person for more than two days.
  10. Shopping for musical scores whilst drunk at half one in the morning is a legitimate and enjoyable holiday activity.
  11. In America: bread = brioche.
  12. Long haul makes my ankles swell.
  13. Queuing's shit.
