Yes you read correctly. There will be a house warming at the Tooting Bec Palace on Saturday 7th of May. We expect the house to be fully warmed up if not actually on fire by the end. Dress is strictly Chav so dust or your cheap market knock-offs and fake bling jewellery because the Tooting Bec Posse are going to say “al’wight guvnor” to our neighbours CHAV STYLE!!!

I attended the London launch of a facinating book called Mind Hacks at Foyles Bookshop near Tottenham Court Road tube.

The presentation was very interesting and I bought the book which looks excellent.

It’s described as: “Mind Hacks is a collection of probes into the moment-by-moment workings of our brain with a view to understanding ourselves a little better and learning a little more, in a very real sense, about what makes us tick.”

Personally I prefer the old fashioned way to hack the mind – with drugs and alcohol. But that is just me. I’m a traditionalist.

I am finally making the big move out of the West London antipodean stronghold of Acton. I moved here in 2001 a staggering 42 months ago. But it is time for a change so I am moving to Balham in South London at the end of the month.

On the up side the new flat is flash as. On the down side my rent has doubled. But as they say, you get what you pay for.
Here are some pics.

Today at three the bombers hit London again. Thankfully these bombers seem to be about as competent as The Three Stooges and early reports suggest that no one was seriously hurt.

These are my options for my journey home.

My Journey home looks shiteI really can’t make up my mind between walk bus train walk bus walk or walk bus walk bus train walk bus walk or even walk bus walk bus train walk bus walk. On the face of things bus train walk bus walk looks like it might be the go but if everyone else thinks the same thing then it almost certainly won’t be. I have a suspicious feeling that I might end up taking the walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk option.
