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…

I recently went to get my hair cut back where I used to live in Palmers Green. I have a wierd thing with hairdressers, only 3 salons have ever cut my hair and I just feel uncomfortable going to a new salon. That is why I go on a 3 hour round trip to get my hair done. Convient? No.

The one salon is a family friends from back home I’ve gone to my whole time in Worcester. The 2nd was in Oakwood, London near my halls and I only went in there once. I ended up having the worst hair cut of my life, but that wasn’t what put me off. This was a proper rude boy barbers I was to discover. During my 30 minutes in there I was offered, and no joke, illegal Batman and Star Wars merchandise, 2 A0 metal picture frames, t-shirts, cocaine and weed. I said no to all. All I wanted was a hair cut.

The third and current salon is in Palmers Green and this is where this post takes shape. I do miss the wierdos in Palmers Green, I really do, everyone is just too normal in Crouch End and sometimes that is not a good thing.

I got off the bus and crossed the road. I was in the middle of the main road when I heard someone shouting at me. It was a tramp asking me if I could give him some money. I replied “I am in the middle of crossing a main road and would like to get to the other side. No thank you.”

I entered the salon and waited my turn. I then got my hair washed before it was cut. There was a new woman washing the customer’s hair, she seemed like an illegal immigrant (possibly) and 50 years old. I question this, because she is 50, why is she just washing hair? To be fair she seemed nice enough. I layed back and she said i will alter the seat, she yanked it so far upwards as smooth as a rollercoaster.

I then noticed her bingo wings on her arms, and I really noticed them as they slapped my face not once, not twice but three times before she said sorry. Lovely. Around 10 minutes later while my hair was being cut, what song came on the radio in the salon? “Wind Beneath My Wings.” I found it almost impossible to stop laughing at the irony.

Now best of all between having my hair washed and hair cut, the sort of thing I seem to attract happened again. Another tramp came into the salon and I quote, “My nail is half coming off my finger could you cut it off?” The owner politely declined saying she can’t use hair scissors on nails for health and safety issues. He then left and everyone burst out laughing. I have to question why he didn’t go into one of the billion nail salons in Palmers Green (every 5th shop is a nail salon there, no really) or just didn’t pick it off if he was that desperate.

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!

I recently got told by one of my close friends – I shall not name her for the embarrassment this post may cause – has problems while going to the toilet and being in the bath. What possible logical explanation could there be?

Well obviously, she often has panic attacks that a shark may come out of the plug hole in the bath and up the toilet while sat on it. If this happens she has to immediately get out of the bathroom and go into another room, compose herself before returning to the shark infested waters of her bathroom. Unbelievable. How old is she? 5? 12? No 24 years old.

I would like to add I can understand unusual phobias, after all, I do have a ridiculous phobia of tuna, I can’t even touch an unused can – but a shark coming out of your bath’s plug hole – it could be stretching things.

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…

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.

Another thing I tweeted about recently that I’ve got round to posting – The Sun came up with this great you couldn’t make it up related headline. Incase you wondered the article is about a primary school kid couldn’t share her birthday cake her gran made with the other kids at school for health and safety reasons.

Go Leory, Go Leroy, Go Leroy

Go Leory, Go Leroy, Go Leroy

About 3 years ago I went to my now housemate Tony’s girlfriend’s joint birthday party. She’s a dancer and so 95% of the people there were off the dance course apart from me and my mates it seemed. Everyone was in the one room or on the balcony.

A few hours in everyone without being told spread out to the sides clearing a space in the middle of the room. Suddenly chants of Go Leroy, Go Leroy, Go Leroy were being chanted by everyone bar me and my mates. We didn’t know what was going on! Suddenly this guy I’ve never met slides his way onto the dancefloor doing his best dance moves. The girls were all in hysterics, loving every move he made. After he finished everyone cheered and were so happy with what they witnessed. Me and my mates were a bit perplexed and were like who was that?

Years later, to a few months back my housemate said Leroy was going to be on Britain’s Got Talent. I never spoke about him since that houseparty with my housemate til then. I then find out he was now going out with my housemates girlfriends housemate.

Leroy was in a group called Flawless. I then watch their audition video, not only was it amazing he was on Britain’s Got Talent, they were absolutely loved and Simon Cowell labels them the best thing he has ever seen!!! You can’t make this up! Here’s a link to the video on youtube.

While on a night out back home I came across this window display, now this is one unique selling point and a half. Why not entice customers into your shop with a huge amount of toilet roll in your window!!
