Kopi Luwak

20130911 Starbucks Coffee Grinder Face 150x150 Kopi LuwakJen from London sent in this image.¬† It is a photograph of a photograph.¬† Jen says, “The picture is a photo I took of a sign on the side of a¬† drive thru, yes, drive thru, Starbucks shop. At Stansted airport. Are there copyright issues here??”

Well, I’d say they are getting free advertising out of this…¬†¬†I¬†have never heard of a coffee drive thru/drive through…¬† That’s pretty lazy, yet very convenient.¬† I wonder if they sell Kopi Luwak.¬† On my home planet we have something similar called Aqh’KapoH.¬† It’s basically Vaxian¬†coffee beans eaten by blue Vaxians.¬† We … Click to read more

Cosmetic Surgery: Lip Curl

20130911 Brushed Stainless Steel Post Face 150x150 Cosmetic Surgery: Lip CurlThis picture was sent in by Jen.¬† It is a round thing… that’s all I know about it!¬† It looks like a brushed stainless steel bollard with some scratches on it.¬† Interestingly, the man spotted a face in a concrete bollard recently and I can’t remember whether I posted it or not…¬† Anyway, this isn’t about me; it’s about this picture!¬† Whatever it is, it seems to be very happy, smiling away.¬† Speaking of smiles, did you know you can get lip curl cosmetic surgery these days to make it look like you’re constantly smiling?¬† I found this out today … Click to read more

Did I mention bacon?

20130911 Yorkshire Pudding Face 150x150 Did I mention bacon?This picture of a Yorkshire pudding (at least I think that’s what it is) was sent in by Jen from London and was taken by a friend or acquaintance of hers.¬† I have never had a Yorkshire pudding and the chances of having one any time soon are pretty slim; the man is gluten intolerant and I’m not sure you can make Yorkshires out of gluten-free flour.¬† Maybe you can.¬† If you have a recipe, maybe you can send me a link.

This “pudding” is very happy, despite the fact that it is a little bit burnt on one side.¬† … Click to read more

A Load of Balls

20130911 Pool Balls Face 150x150 A Load of BallsJen sent in a picture, which she got from a friend.¬† She said, “Somebody tells me they see faces too!”¬† I’m not sure what this particular object is, but it’s definitely got a face.¬† I’m somewhat distracted by the pool balls in the background.¬† I do like a good game of pool.¬† It’s like a swimming pool, only different.¬† I’m not much of a fan of swimming to tell you the truth.¬† Water tends to mess me up for a while.¬† I do like watching women in the swimming pool… especially Kylie…

Anyway, I need to upload a couple more … Click to read more

Cigars are Cool

20130911 Smoking Component Face 150x150 Cigars are CoolCigars.¬† What’s the first thing that springs to mind when you think of cigars?¬† Jimmy Savile?¬† Bill Clinton?¬† Fidel Castro?¬† Saddam Hussein?¬† Or do you think of Birds of Baldwin Street, the Bristol-based tobacconist, where the old boys used to smoke cigars¬†indoors with the door open, whilst giving excellent customer service?

I happen to think of the man whose airing cupboard I live in.¬† He is a complete idiot.¬† He smokes cigars very occasionally, perhaps one or two a year.¬† Whatever you might think of smoking (it is bad for you and I don’t like habitual cigarette smoking), I … Click to read more

Watching Kylie

20130911 SciSpin Mini Centrifuge Face 150x150 Watching KylieThis picture was sent in by Edwin and shows another centrifuge; this time a SciSpin Mini.¬† It looks very much like the type of centrifuge we Vaxians use to enrich uranium for spacecraft propulsion.¬† This centrifuge is pretty happy, just like the other one.¬† I bet he’s watching videos of Kylie Minogue…

Nice picture, Edwin!… Click to read more

I’m spinning around

20130911 Centrifuge Face 150x150 Im spinning aroundHere follows the final batch of images sent in by Edwin!¬† This is a picture of a centrifuge.¬† I’m not sure what kind of centrifuge, but it’s a fairly happy one.¬† Happy because it’s spinning around, move out of its way, he knows you’re feeling him cause you like it like this…¬† Well, I think Kylie Minogue’s version is better; partly because she’s hot…¬† Vaxian women are not as beautiful as she is.¬† Vaxian women suck!¬† But that’s not necessarily a bad thing…

Anyway, centrifuges… what more can I say?¬† Thanks Edwin!… Click to read more

Happy in your job?

20130908 Happy Adjuster Face 150x150 Happy in your job?Edwin sent in this picture of what he calls an “adjuster”.¬† I’m not entirely sure what it is, but it appears to be a piece of steel holding something else in position for some reason.¬† Maybe for machining or perhaps for something¬†entirely different.¬† Whatever it is doing, it seems pretty happy.¬† And that’s actually quite a rarity these days.¬†¬†In the economic climate I know plenty of people who are unhappy in their current jobs.¬† Salaries are low, prices are rising, houses are unaffordable, big companies are profiting, clients and bosses bully¬†and wealth isn’t trickling down.¬† It’s all … Click to read more

Cute and delicious

20130908 Door Parrot Face 150x150 Cute and deliciousAnimals are interesting in that they are¬†both cute and delicious.¬† As a Vaxian I don’t care too much where my food has come from; I¬†crash landed on a¬†strange blue planet and I had to survive, so I made myself eat whatever I could find on the floor…¬†or in the man’s fridge.¬† ¬† Edwin sent in this picture of a door parrot.¬† It’s interesting how animals manifest themselves in the home, in places you’d least expect.¬† Finding mice, cockroaches or silverfish¬†is quite common but random parrots?¬† Maybe on board a pirate ship…¬† I had a Varrot on … Click to read more

A horror movie

20130908 Daihatsu hijet windscreen washer face 150x150 A horror movieEdwin sent in this image of a Daihatsu Hijet windscreen washer.¬† It’s actually quite an eerie image; a bit like something out of a horror movie, where an apparition appears outside the window on a rainy stormy night.¬† The figure has slight exotropia, which makes it even more scary, as I’m unsure where he’s looking.¬† Is he looking at me?¬† Is he at my soul?¬† Either way, I’m pretty scared.¬† Well, the joke’s on him: Vaxians don’t have souls.… Click to read more
