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…

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…

Have you ever seen those rubbish Christmas themed films that seem to appear around Christmas? You often think why do they make them and who on Earth would buy them?

I will tell you buys these £3 dvds from Tesco, my mother. I can’t understand it and just thought she was winding me up, but she had actually bought them. When you read the synopsis of these films it gets even worse. I can’t bare to write anymore on this because it hurts.

We need another Christmas turkey

We need another Christmas turkey

Some of you may have seen my tweet about this around Christmas time. Just to quickly fill you in, my Grandad is a retired wheelwright / carpenter who lives in the countryside.

So, me and my family were eating our Christmas dinner at my Grandad’s like we do every year. Usually at the end of dinner my Grandad gets the same puzzle toys he made years ago for us all to figure out. This year he went one better when for some reason we got onto the topic of my Grandad’s shot gun. I didn’t believe he owned one so he went and got his shot gun out. Just to point out there was no ammo in the gun, but that was brought to the table just in case.

To own a shot gun, I’m not sure on this exactly, but you need to pass a medical certificate each year, keep it in a cabinet and the police come round each year to check on it to give another certificate. I really don’t know how he passed all these! Anyways, it did provide something different to the traditional Christmas dinner.

My mum has recently informed my sister how our Great Auntie died. Now I never met her or my grandmother as they passed away before I was born. This is short story.

My Great Auntie died from being run over by a bus. Her niece / my grandmother was on that bus. Unbelievable!

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!

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.

Many of you could probably guess what this special post is about, many of you might not fully understand the true scale of this post. Either way I shall explain.

It all started in a pub quiz around 3 years ago. The question asked was what name is given when a cricket batsmen scores 111 runs. We didn’t know so we tried to work out the answer and decided upon the answer stumps – because there are 3 stumps in cricket and they look like 3 ones. The actual answer was nelson (see here for more on this on wikipedia). Our answer was laughed at by the quiz master – i’ll do a post just on him actually in the coming weeks!

For the months that followed my mate Jason who was at the quiz was somewhat haunted by the number 111, he kept seeing it everywhere. Stumps was everywhere. Jason was able to tell his problem to us all, but after his confession it seemed noone was safe and 111 was everywhere.

We couldn’t escape and it has now got to the point of ridiculous. There are so many links to this number it has almost become a blur now. It’s got so bad that my mate Tom’s mother prank calls his mobile phone everyday at 1:11!

Jason once went to a poker night and had to pick a seat and table position from a bowl. What did he pick out? He picked out table 11 seat 1! He could have had any position and he got stumps.

I seem to glance at the time everyday at 1:11 most of the time without meaning too. I now seem to score goals on football games in the 111th minute, i keep walking past house number 111, on my exercise bike i deliberately cycle 11.11km everytime, it’s just taking over – partly i’m looking for it but mainly i just keep running into it – it’s just slipped into mine, my friends, my family and their families subconscious.

Below are just a few photos I have of this phenomenon…

And if you think me and my friends and family are the only ones going through this you would be wrong! There is a facebook group (click here) set up i found recently where other people keep seeing 111 too.

On top of this in the last month Lady Soverign was interviewed on Radio 1 explaining her new tattoo – 11:11 – why? Because she keeps seeing it everywhere and because if you see it it apparently means an angel is looking over you. This sparked a mass phone in with many other people saying they keep seeing 111 or 11:11 everywhere too.

It seems this disease is just spreading and spreading and soon everyone will know about 111’s power!

I still can’t believe my parents keep this plant in the house, surely it is dead and needs throwing away. It’s been like this for years!!

My dad goes to a soul nightclub called Junction 11. Have a guess which junction it’s off on the M6. Junction 11 you say? No it’s located off junction 9!

The Best 100 Names Ever

The Best 100 Names Ever

The winner is…

1. Dave Cheeseburger

Dave Cheeseburger

Dave Cheeseburger

The name Dave Cheeseburger was originally made up. One week at our local pub we used Dave Cheeseburger as our team name in the pub quiz. We did not get the bonus point for the team name that week and the quizmaster was annoyed with the name.

Two weeks later we did the quiz again and called ourselves ‘The Return of Dave Cheeseburger’ just to annoy the quizmaster.

This time he gave us the best team name bonus point. After the quiz he came to apologise to us for being so irritated with the name Dave Cheeseburger. The reason he was so irritated was because his name was Dave, and at school he was quite fat and the kids bullied him by calling him Dave Cheeseburger.

He thought we knew this and we’re laughing at him, but we weren’t, it was just a name we made up! Unbelievable!!

If you would like to see the list in full again you can view it in the bonus material section.
