This is the email to blog thingie.  Not quite as funky as Blogger Mobile, but I can still post from my phone.  Yay!


I'm Still Alive

Just in case you were wondering, dear readers.

Stressing out over assignments and stuff. Blogger have just started Blogger Mobile, so maybe I'll find the time to post via my Motorola if I can figure out how to work it.

Constant vigilance!

Bluewater Bans Hoodies

"Hooded tops, baseball caps and swearing have been outlawed at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour."

This is a nice idea in theory, but they can't stop every single person who wants to shop at Bluewater from wearing a hooded sweatshirt. While I would presume that 99% of trouble makers at Bluey wear hoodies and baseball caps, there are many more people who wear them and don't cause trouble. I suppose it might work if they enforce it the same way as motorcycle helmets.

This comes from a shopping mall thats too "posh" to have a Woolworths and Argos. How does it become a mecca for young chavs? Prehaps they should ban Mcdonalds and sports shops as well?

If it gets rid of ASB then good. But I've never seen any at Bluewater.

I am very tempted to buy a cap and pay a visit at the weekend.

Sitting on the fence with this one...

Panorama of Erith Pier

Went on the Erith Deep Wharf pier during my lunch break and took some pictures which I have stuck together to make a panorama. Not quite as posh as the Beeb, but at least I managed to stick it together properly. ;)

If you click on the picture, it links to the original large file.

If you look very carefully, you can see the wind turbines at Dagenham, and the QEII bridge. The view of the Thames from here is truly a fabulous thing to view while eating your sarnies.

Another version here.

Purple and Gold

Woke up to a nice surprise from the postman. My beautiful sari bag arrived. A wonderful patchwork of purple and gold. Doesn't have a zip or anything to close it up. So I'm going to have to get a bit handy again and sew a couple of press studs in. Not brave enough to do a zip.

I'll stop stroking it soon.

Bexleyheath & Crayford

My constituency was number 21 on the Conservative hit list, and they won. (They were number 16 on the Labour defence list.) I suspect this was more to do with the people of Bexleyheath, than the people of Crayford. We have joined the rest of the SE and NE suburbs in turning blue. Anti social behaviour, problems for first time buyers, cleaner hospitals and lower taxes, I suspect are the reasons for the change.

I didn't stay up till the end. As soon as Putney fell I knew B&C would, so I went to bed. I did like the beebs live desktop score card which let me know who had won when I woke up for a few minutes at 4.30am.

I didn't vote for Mr Evennet, my old school governer, so I shall be keeping my beedy eye on him.

Who Should You Vote For?

Apparently I should have voted Green. Unfortunately they wasn't running in my constituency....

The Obligatory Election Post

Just in case you've been stuck on a Vorgon ship for the past few months, today is Election Day.

Polling Stations will be open from 7am till 10pm, so I hope you will be making the effort to vote for whoever your heart decides. Doesn't matter who you vote for, as long as you exercise your right to do so. Even if you just spoil the ballot paper.

If you don't vote, you lose the right to complain about anything for the next 5 years.

Women have been allowed to vote for over 75 years now. (Aren't men kind?)

During the 1900's suffragettes chained themselves to railings, burned down buildings, attacked politicians, refused to pay taxes, broke all the windows in Oxford Street and vandalised works of art. When they were put in prison they starved themselves and were often forced fed through tubes. Emily Wilding Davison threw herself in front of a horse and died in the name of suffrage.

All so we have the right to vote today.

I have Friday off work, so I will probably sit up all night and watch it all unfold.

I'm getting excited now!

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be released at Imax cinemas on the 18th November as well.

I think I will be first in the queue.

Hot Chocolate

A work friend of mine is leaving on Friday, and I've made her a fab present to take away to her new office job. (Hope she's not reading this!)

One of the things she is looking forward to is being able to sit down at her desk and have a nice hot drink. So I've brought her a new mug with some hot chocolate, cappuccino, and Ovaltine sachets for her to drink. Also the (essential) teaspoon, some chocolate bars, and a lollipop. Then I got really creative and wrapped it in cellophane and a ribbon.

I'm very proud of myself. Normally I would just go to Boots and buy a gift set and a bag for it to go in.

This is a picture of the mug and sweets, and this a picture of it all wrapped. Cellophane doesn't photograph well. Taken with my new camera.

Now what can I make next?
