You Are An INFP



The Idealist



You are a creative person with a great imagination. You enjoy living in your own inner world.

Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.

It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close to you.

But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.



In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.

You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.



At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.



How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual



When other people don't get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak



And a couple of videos for you all, from my recent trip to Wildwood.

There's still snow here today, not as much as most of you but a good inch or so, and more is falling now, meaning UKC is closing at 2pm, and a couple of schools are closing now that were open earlier due to worsening conditions. Our stairs, which have been swept and salted twice since yesterday are overwhelmed with snow again. It's all rather exciting ;)

For readers elsewhere I should explain that here in the UK, especially in the South East corner (and I'm almost as south and east as you can get) we don't usually get snow, especially snow that settles enough to do stuff in due to the jet stream which keeps Britain warm, despite it being on the same longitude as Moscow (I believe). So when it does snow and settles it causes chaos ;)

Our excitement this morning was doubled (or more!) by being able to have a proper play with [livejournal.com profile] benc's Christmas present, Lego Technic set 8275, a Motorized Bulldozer in the snow.

Research suggested it would work very well in the snow, as there are videos of the Lego development team testing one of the development models in the snow, but we still wanted to have a play ourselves. This most recent (and heavy) snow has given us the perfect opportunity.

So we did. Here are the videos to prove it!

First [livejournal.com profile] benc had a go while I filmed:


Then I drove it while [livejournal.com profile] benc filmed:

I think I can safely say that a good time was had by all :)

You Are a Comma



You are open minded and extremely optimistic.

You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.



You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.

You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.



Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.

(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)



You excel in: Inspiring people



You get along best with: The Question Mark



As with most memes, I have no idea how true it is.

Weirdest advert I've seen in a long time. Saw this while watching something on tv, and boggled. Still boggling at it a few days after inital exposure. So I thought I'd share ;) )

Finally, I know that Britain, nay The World, is "Credit Crunched" (*shudders* - I hate that term), but I think that this is going a bit far in terms of swapping products to save money )

I've been pretty wound up about Proposition 8 (with good reason), but I felt we could do with a lighthearted but pointed interlude to giggle over for a bit :)

And so, without further ado, I present:

Proposition 8, The Musical starring Jack Black, John C. Reilly, and many more...



From various sources, but the one that actually prompted me to watch to and then post was Boing Boing.

Look what the BBC did! They've made a trailer for their showing of "War of the Worlds", starring Tom Cruise with the irritating Dakota Fanning screaming her way through. My problem with it is that they have taken the awesome music of Jeff Wayne's "The War of the Worlds" and used it to advertise this travesty.

I dispair :(

So Saturday was the second annual "Tapas at Typo's", otherwise known as "typostock". There was much too much food again (better than too little!) and it was a lot quieter than last year which was nice though I missed foo, rah, xiphi, si, bethan and lacey who all should have been there :P

The lack of Sangria (provided by liz and si last year) led to a lack of amusing fights with bushes, getting undressed behind cushions and vomiting incidents. However, it was lovely to see kimble and barakta who weren't there last year, and the old faithfuls - mark, azz, typo, phil, sam, pao and anyone else I've forgotten.

People played on ben's wii which was cool and very funny for all concerned, especially the cow racing :D

In the end Phil lit an excellent fire which was built around a metal chair. It got very hot and was really cool. Pity it couldn't have continued for longer. It scares me how good Phil is at building fires. I guess I should take his threats to set me on fire more seriously in future.

Pao took a photo that summed up the fire (and the pyromania shared by Ben and I) :D



On Sunday we brought Phil back to Canterbury with us and bought him his birthday present. I was weak and let him have it now, even though his birthday is not for three weeks yet. Sunday was far too hot and when we got back to the flat we all flaked out. It seems summer has actually arrived now. I don't feel like I've had any time to prepare for the temperatures, hence why I think I flaked out.

Yesterday I took Phil to Greenwich and he showed me around his Uni campus (or as much as he could - they have scary security there - you need an ID card just to get into regular buildings) and I had a market related accident - I now have a new bag, hair band, toe ring and friendship bracelet that makes an excellent anklet.

As the parking ran out in the Greenwich car park at 11am we decided to go to Bluewater for a wander around, some Krispy Kremes and lunch. When we got there we found that there was a bungee trampoline set up in the grounds and Phil and I went halves on a five minute stint for him and I filmed and photographed him with my crappy camera phone which was all I had.


One of the better pictures

Other pictures of him doing his thing are here.

I've uploaded the videos to youtube cos they were in a silly format. Apologies for my silly voice over the top.

The second video is by far the funniest and I actually managed to capture the only successful forward somersault he managed:





After that, which was really very funny to watch, we wandered around various shops, lusting after shinies (particularly in Game and the Lego shop) before ending up in Ed's Diner opposite Krispy Kreme for lunch:

It was very nice food and it didn't have that yellow tinge in the diner! I blame crappy camera phone.

In the end, full of pie, we purchased our doughnuts and headed back to the car, but not before Phil had a play with the pirate ships just outside one of the entrances:


Finally I dropped him home in Coulsdon, picking up left over serrano ham, and headed back to Canterbury.

A busy few days, but very nice and fun :) I especially treasure the memories of Phil making a tit of himself on the bungee trampoline!

US Home prices adjusted for inflation plotted as a roller coaster. It's a really awesome video, made by someone with way too much time on their hands.

Basically someone with Rollercoaster Tycoon has made a rollercoaster that's just like a rideable graph of US house prices, adjusted for inflation. It's pretty cool and the ending is pretty terrifying.

Now I have to go play Rollercoaster Tycoon again. Grr ;)

My favourite ever XKCD. It's funny cos it's true. The days I have wasted clicking through wikipedia links after looking something up and ending up with 20 tabs open on incredibly diverse subjects.

The result when a third grader with a shaky grasp of maths was asked to "Draw a triangle, CAT, with one right angle". Fantastic :D Go take a look. Seriously cute too :D

Last weekend ben and I watched some programs about "Monty Python's Life of Brian", including one called "The Secret Life of Brian" which showed the televised debate about Life of Brian between Palin and Cleese for the Pythons and The Bishop of Southwark and Malcolm Muggeridge on the case for the opposition. Look at the very top link for a run down of the debate.

On searching youtube for it I came across General Synod's "Life of Christ" which was a Not the Nine O'Clock News sketch from the next week, taking the piss out of the debate (which itself seemed farcical in places). It's really screamingly funny. See below for the video (unfortunately the sound on it is very quiet).

The advert would appear to be real (the product definitely is).

How genuinely terrifying (and full of innuendo) ;)

I was reading through my friends list tonight (and my bloglines feed) both of which include quite a few Americans. As a result of this, and the fact that we have been thinking about 9/11 on this side of the pond too, I have read several posts about the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington 5 years ago today.

The best one I have found was by [livejournal.com profile] lisaofdoom in this post. In case you are too lazy to click on the link (I know most of you too well :P) here is the video she has, embedded right here in my very own ickle LJ.



It's the start of The Daily Show from 20th September 2001, the first one after the terrorist attacks. The host is Jon Stewart who lives in New York where The Daily Show (shown on E4 at 8:30 every weeknight for those of you in the UK) is filmed.

I think he says it better than anything I could write or anything I have read today.

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] benc, [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple, [livejournal.com profile] red_pill and I went up to Cane Hill Hospital (as written about before here). We decided we wanted to walk on the public footpath (in green) around the old place and take some pictures. It was a nice day, we were in the mood for a walk and we thought this would be cool.

We got up there and stood taking a few pictures of the main entrance from the footpath when a security guy in a white van came up, got out and came round the fence. He ignored [livejournal.com profile] red_pill and [livejournal.com profile] benc (and also [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple who was ignoring him and being non confrontational and cool) and went for me (young, female, short...) and started to be very confrontational with me, telling us that we would have to leave immediately, that he would escort us from the premises. I told him (seeing as he was only talking to me) that it was a nice day, we were going for a walk along the footpath and that we would walk to the end and back again. He told us that he was the boss and we were going to be escorted off or he would call the police. Eventually he said we could walk to Portnalls Road (the other end of the public footpath) and he'd meet us there.

We got there, he yelled at us a bit more and we walked back the way we'd come like we'd always intended to. When we got back to the point he'd originally met us at he was there again, with a mate in a car painted like a police car, which followed us all the way down the road.

I was (and still am) to some extent absolutely furious at being accused of something I had no intention of doing and being made to feel like a criminal for doing nothing wrong. What a dick.

He was employed by Defense Security Services (UK) Ltd, and their contact number is 020 8640 3000.

Pictures are here (note [livejournal.com profile] red_pill doing his insane thing - ).

An account by [livejournal.com profile] benc is here and here.

An account by [livejournal.com profile] bethanthepurple is here (friends only) and one by [livejournal.com profile] red_pill is here.

A video I made about yesterday's goings on at Cane Hill, with sound (yay Queen!) OOH! And an avi version. JOY!

Edit, 22nd Jan 2008: A YouTube version!


If you visit, make sure you stick to the footpath and stand your ground if security start questioning you. I would also suggest phoning the police and reporting the harassment should it continue. I wish we had. I also reccommend getting their SIA identification so you can report them later.
