I recently went to buy some gym trousers from Sportsworld’s biggest store on Oxford Street. I couldn’t tell whether these trousers fitted me so I thought I’d better double check and try them on.

I had been in this shop a couple of times over the years but when I thought about it I couldn’t remember ever seeing some changing rooms. There must be some somewhere, the shop is huge and has several floors. I asked a member of staff and they said they were upstairs, so there I went.

I then saw the changing rooms were infact just one changing room right next to the till and a large queue of people. It was so bad I just refused to try them on and took a chance on their size (for the record they did fit). I can officially say they are the worst changing rooms I’ve seen in a major chain’s shop in England.

A dog is not just for christmas

A dog is not just for christmas

This is my final Christmas related post for now. I was outside Brixton tube one night just before Christmas when I passed by this busker. His Christmas hat was a nice touch, but the Christmas top and hat for the dog really made it for me. The dog was very well trained because he didn’t move, but unfortunately not much music was coming from him.

Still this dog has a long way to go to match Bella – Will’s/Office dog at Acknowledgement. My fellow employees keep buying outfits for Will’s dog and then claim they were bought by the fictional dog Stella (apparently Bella’s best mate).

While I mention Bella, I should also point out how much she loves to sun bathe and the photo below proves it…

Finally I shall just point out this piece of artwork I saw in a gallery in Mayfair a few months back. It was a stuffed dog eating a rodent which I thought was frighteningly similar to Bella.

The post title explains it all really, this post is all over the shop but it held together by the recent food theme in the final one of these food themed posts.

Looks tasty

First up, yes its immature but still, it is funny – it’s your mixer alternative the classic drink “Pussy.”

Loafing around

Loafing around

Times are hard as a student, not much cash lying around, but not if you like your bread. This is the sight I came back to in my halls kitchen one day – tonnes of bread!

I'll have a half please

Alcoholics? I can’t see how you label my social circle that way, oh hang on this photo? Well this was your average cocktail in Prague and virtually nothing in cost and we had several of these too worryingly. Could explain a lot.

Don't ask me for a jacket potato

Don't ask me for a jacket potato

For some reason I just cannot cook jacket potatoes. Have you tried it in the microwave? You put foil around it in the oven? You did slit it first? Yes, yes and yes I think I’ve tried all techniques but I seem to cursed and cannot do it. On this effort I temporarily broke my microwave for an hour before serving this fluff ball straight into my kitchen bin.

Oh yeah pierce the packaging

Oh yeah pierce the packaging

You can’t blame me too much I was hungover at the time, so I resorted to a dirty microwave meal but only remembered to only pierce the one package with a fork. This is what happens if you don’t kids.

Good reason

Good reason

Morrisons have many good reasons to shop there over the other supermarkets in a recent campaign. This one though is corker! Why should I go to Morrisons over Tescos? Well reason 17 of course silly – “your new Morrisons is now open.”

Blackcurrent no?

Blackcurrant no?

Now what colour would you expect the drink and tablet to be from the box? Pink? Purple? A blackcurrant flavour? Well actually no, as you can see it was a lemon/orange colour and taste. Just bizarre.

Turkey?

Turkey?

While on a night out my sister decided to send me this picture of herself, with a turkey on her head. Kind of like that scene from Friends. It still makes me laugh.

An Everton milkshake!

Another moment from my trips to Brighton, I was down there on FA Cup final day and saw a milkshake shop. I entered and found for that weekend only there was an exclusive Everton milkshake – wicked!

Unusual formation

And finally – all dirty plates must be washed and cleared away. So I’ll end on this photo. Have you ever seen the bubbles from your washing up liquid form this shape? A perfect circle in the middle? I haven’t and haven’t since this happened in my new flat. Let me now if you have!

So this ends the current run of food themed posts. I’m sure there will be more to come.

I was once refused entry to Reflex nightclub. This is a nightclub for those who don’t know it, that is a tribute to everything 1980s, the music, the fashion, the flashing dancefloor etc.

Me and my mates were behind a hen party dressed with huge sombreros, fake guns and big fake moustaches. They went into Reflex and we were then refused entry based on the dress code, all because our shoes weren’t smart enough. Usually I wouldn’t be too aggrieved but after what went in before us that was silly beyond reason!

Is it a man? Is it a zebra?

Is it a man? Is it a zebra?

What a great outfit! This guy was spotted on the DLR line going to London City Airport in full head to toe zebra get up!

Following on from the silly curtains post the other day I had to follow that up with this fence. Seriously, i really would love someone to tell me the reasoning behind this. Before you think, oh you must have just walked past this fence while they were putting it up, well these photos were taken 4 weeks after i first saw this fence so obviously they must just like the security and design this fence brings to their home.

I stay in only the best quality hostels

Now i appreciate i was staying in a hostel in Prague, and couldn’t expect much but surely at least some curtains that covered half the window wasn’t too much to ask! I mean look at them – not wide enough, not long enough and they are see through!

And to add actually the heating didn’t work the first day we were there, it was ok though, it was only -10 degrees in January at the time!!

There is usually someone with a large megaphone preaching the bible right outside Oxford Circus. For a full amazing interview with him click here.

However one time when I was in the area there was a man dressed as a wizard with a large megaphone preaching about wizardry – only metres away from the bible preacher!

I was walking to a gig at the Kentish Town Forum and as I walked round the corner to get into the queue there was an unusual creature infront of me. A 7ft lemon! There was also a 7ft plum too that unfortunately I never got a photo with.

Hayley once bought a pair of shoes, for almost a year her left foot was always in pain when she wore these shoes.

When she moved into her new place Hayley was sorting out her shoe rack and realised the reason her left foot always hurt – she had bought two right foot shoes!

I thought this was ridiculous, I then found out two more of my friends have done the same thing!
