Le Jacques Merde absolutement…

Car pedals 150x150 Le Jacques Merde absolutement...I thought it would be cool to do another update of I Spy – a feature that I have neglected somewhat.  As with the I See Faces feature, there are plenty of pictures to come – it’s just finding the time to update the site as well as tweaking the layout as traffic and content increases.   And then, of course, there’s my day job and social life…  I spend at least 10 hours a week of my life commuting (by train), which doesn’t help matters, but I see it as my “thinking” time.  OK, so in reality I do little thinking and either stare gormlessly into space or read the news on my phone.  Quite often I prefer the former, as I’ll have spent the whole day staring at a computer screen… and maybe a little bit of staring gormlessly into space as well.  It’s my thinking face…

Quite often I’ll be out of the office, driving to undisclosed locations to carry out site visits.  Other times I’ll drive to Wales (or W-Land, as someone I know “affectionately” 🙂 referred  to it recently – Mmmm, pic’n’mix…) to represent the company I work for at meetings.  I drive a lot of hire cars, which can be interesting, as I seem to get a different make and model every time.  But I’ve written about this many times before so I’ll spare you the agony of Abraham Simpson-style repetition.

Well, this feature is about “seeing things in things that aren’t the thing that I can see in the thing in question”…  What?  I said, “seeing things in things that aren’t the thing that I can see in the thing in question” – simples. 🙂  So, what can you see?  What do I see? 

I spy a remote control car pedals 300x225 Le Jacques Merde absolutement...

 

Why it’s a set of pedals in the foot well of a hire car I was driving recently.  It was a mod new one with only a few hundred miles on the clock.  At this point I have to confess I know “le Jacques Merde absolutement” about cars, but I do like making up my own mock French. 🙂  Zoom in on the pedals and it looks like a remote control.  Was I driving the world’s biggest remote controlled car?

Cry baby bunting…

20101005 Camera Case 300x225 Cry baby bunting...Whilst resting my eyes from the computer screen, trying to juggle an endless stream of emails and reinforced concrete design, I noticed the camera case looking unhappy. It’s not very clear in the picture (damn you Nokia E71 camera!) but it looks like a cute baby, except he’s not so cute, in that he’s crying. Are you hungry, little man?

Funnily enough as I am typing this, I’m listening to Last.fm and a smooth jazz version of Stevie Wonder’s song “Isn’t she lovely” came on, which started with baby sounds in the background. Incidentally, if you’re reading this, boss, I am typing this at home! 😉 Don’t pay too much attention to the blog timestamp – it’s back-dated to give my new blog some structure. It is actually 31 December 2010 today…
