Pac Man actually eats cherries

not pills. I've already blogged about Pac Man's influence on modern day youth culture, so I won't mention that quote again (even though it does generate few hits). Instead I'll talk about cherries. Related to peaches, cherries are a wonderful fruit. Did you ever see that one episode of Twin Peaks where Sherlyn Fenn ties a cherry stem into a knot with her tongue? If not, youtube it, it's hot.

I wish the weather would make its mind up

Fluorescent t-shirts are fine in the sun, but look a tad odd during a downpour.

I wish I was less busy

I don't think my new cloud backdrop is helping either.

Yes, it's really me*!

Would you like me to sign that with my massive hand? Remember that joke about Jeremy Beadle? In the interests of taste, I won't repeat it. In many ways, it was a tad unfair how he was, at times, vilified by the public for hosing a prank show. I mean, yes he may have had a hand in devising some of the pranks, but you have to remember ALL of Beadle's About's 'victims' were the subject of practical jokes instigated by a friend or family member. Jeremy didn't select random members of the public, unlike most modern day prank shows (Trigger Happy TV, Phonejacker etc). I'm not saying those guys don't get people to sign a release, they do, but Dom Jolly and the bloke who does Phonejacker are never commonly referred to as cunts is the same was Jeremy Beadle was. Anyway, at least Jeremy Beadle could have a laugh at himself, the cunt.

Today's tee is from Local Celebrity.

* by the way, I'm not Gok Wan, the drummer from Bloc Party or Xavier from Justice.

Spelling errors

I love 'em! I'm assuming this t-shirt is meant represent St. Tropez. Anyway, I like the boat on it.

Blue sky thinking

I hate that term nearly as much as mind mapping. No, more so than mind mapping

One of the main things I like about Leopard, aside from the fact it makes whatever windows os they're on at the moment look rubbish, is the quicklook button. I'm not really going anywhere with this post as I have no interesting stories about leopards. Or quicklook. Or anything today.

This isn't even my highlighter, someone nicked mine a long time ago.

Hawk eye

I think I have already explained about how much I would like some form of bird of prey as a superhero sidekick. However, I'm not a massive fan of Hawk-Eye in tennis. I'm not against using technology, its more the problems that crop up that sits uneasily with me. See these copy paste examples(I started writing an abstract explanation but ended up using google and finding this: 
For example in a match last year, Andy Roddick was just about to hit back his opponent's ball. But just before he was about to, the line judge called his opponent's shot wide so Roddick left the ball alone. His opponent then challenged and it actually showed the ball in, but since Roddick didn't hit the shot prior to the call, his opponent wins the point regardless because it is considered a winner as the supposedly-out-ball-which-was-actually-in surpassed Roddick even though the line judge called it out before he hit it. The chair umpire would claim that Roddick since he didn't hit it originally, it shows that he couldn't get to the ball. And since it is actually in, it should be a winner for Roddick's opponent. This is a common scenario which I see many times on the tour, especially with serves.

Another situation is when a player is returning a serve, say a second serve for example to emphasize the ridiculous reasoning the 
ATP sometimes has, and they play a rally in which the returner is in control in which he hits a forehand that clips the line and forces his opponent to dink to ball back. But all of a sudden, the line judge calls the returner's forehand long which causes a challenge and they end up finding that the forehand was indeed in. But since the server was able to get the ball back, regardless of how badly it was hit back, all they do is replay the point with the server getting two chances again on serve even though he started the point after missing the first serve. And then with this reborn opportunity, the server shoots off an ace with his first serve giving him the point/game/set/match. There are a few other situations but this shows how ridiculous the rules are sometimes.
I think the lesson to be learnt here is that even with technology you can always find fault with rulings in sport. Have an image:
Fun with the timer

With the heat wave on us I was missing wearing a cardie so I decided to wear this WeSC cardigan print t-shirt today. Its nowhere near as awesome as the wolf tee I got in the post yesterday.

I really don't like excel. Or any of the horrible RAM chugging Office applications. Does Word really need as much as Adobe® Photoshop™?

Strobe effect

Have you noticed how, these days, instead of having a 'strobe lighting' warning before films on the telly they just slow down the parts of the movie with such effects. I wonder what it would be like if this thinking was extended to life in general - instead of warnings things would automatically be altered to be 'safe'. Driving might be fun I guess.
