On the subject of the previous post on the number 111, i think it’s a good a time than ever to post another 111 update as there has been quite a high level of quality of 111 sightings in recent times. So here are a few more…

The above is taken from SkySports tv advertisement for the Champions League next season (2010/2011 season). How many games are they showing?? This advert seems to always be on at the moment too.

I was doing some research on Playboy at work and what was the main article on the homepage? No, I don’t get it either.

Ashes to Ashes countdown clock

Ashes to Ashes countdown clock

This was taken from the first episode of Ashes to Ashes series 3. There was a countdown clock in the office counting down to when the kidnapped child was going to die. You may think so what, there was a countdown, it was bound to show this time, well maybe, but there were only 2 sightings of the clock in the episode and shortly after this final sighting of the countdown clock they actually found the kidnapped child.

My first ever £1.11 receipt

My first ever £1.11 receipt

Some doubters may think I deliberately make sure everything I buy totals to £1.11, but you are wrong, I would never force a 111 on myself, it happens enough as it is. I only have had 3 £1.11 receipts so far and the above was my first. This one really was unusual because someone I worked with was going to the local shop and asked if I wanted anything. When he came back he gave everyone their items and receipts, amazingly my choice of drink and sweet came to £1.11!

UFC 111

UFC 111

I don’t know much about UFC, but I have a few friends on Facebook who do. Recently the big event – ‘UFC 111’ happened and got mentioned a lot on my news feed. I thought it was a joke until I found the site for the event and it was in fact real.

Below are 2 news articles I actually saw quite awhile go but I went and found again to add to my new blog as they were such good sightings…

I See 111 Everywhere

I See 111 Everywhere

One of the things I have done recently since I’ve been quiet blogging on ‘U Couldn’t make It Up’ is setting up a sister blog called ‘I See 111 Everywhere.’

Some of you may know about my fascination with the number 111 from knowing me or reading a few posts on here, but since I got a new phone that can actually access the internet I decided to set this site up. Everytime I see the number 111 or see a story on it I shall post it on there. I say that but my regularity hasn’t been quite the best because I see this number so often I haven’t taken a photo everytime because I could be here all day! I have however kept uploading the better sightings!

‘I See 111 Everywhere’ can be found here at isee111everywhere.tumblr.com

A while ago, infact post 111, I mentioned how the number 111 had taken over certain sections of my life. Well since then there have been many more sightings and experiences of this phenomenon I want to share. So here are a few of them…

A local shop

After talking at work how I kept seeing 111 and the general feeling was I was looking for it so I saw it more often I then went to get some food for lunch. Low and behold opposite Square Pie was this sign!

This photo was taken when we were walking around the harbour in Brighton.

Table 111

Table 111

This spot was brilliant. We were in a spoons in central London and for half hour there were no tables free in the entire place. Eventually some people left and we immediately grabbed that table. We were sat down for awhile before we decided to get some food. I chose my selection and started to walk over to the bar to order before I remembered I forgot to look what my table number was…. and what was it??? 111!!

Bowling

This one was kind of inevitable thinking about it afterwards, but the first time I go bowling in years and one of us ended up on a total of 111. We all know who the real winner was!

Finally, I went home to Worcester recently and as I walked through the my house door there was 1 leaflet only that had been posted through the letterbox and it was the above. It could have been any value but it had to be £111.
