Brilliant shopping trolley game!

Posted by Martin on May 17, 2007

Just found this fantastic game which has been developed for the University Admissions service here in the UK. It’s called ‘Trolley Racer’, and it’s basically a simple time trial driving game in which you play as a student in a shopping trolley. Grab the burgers and avoid the beer as you attempt to ‘stay on course’ (ho ho).

Great fun – click here to play now!

Coming to America

Posted by Martin on May 17, 2007

Oh yes, I get to go and visit my buddy in California next month! Expect plenty of semi-acerbic observations on American culture….

I’m going for a week on business, and it’ll  be a two-centre thing. First half I’ll be with my aforementioned friend, second half I’ll be going to Chicago where I know absolutely no-one. My travelling companion and I will be seeking out adventure however we can find it, which will probably involve some degree of wind.

Top of our list of things to try to do there is attend a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field. Anyone got any spare tickets for Saturday 16th June? Always worth a punt…

Anyway, tremendously excited, and looking forward to spending time in my second favourite country in the world.

Red Socks

Posted by Martin on May 2, 2007

Len has begged me to put this on the site, and promises to push the cricket agenda in the United States and convert all his friends to West Ham United supporters if I do…

So here goes: Go the Red Socks. Whatever that means.

[cricket/soccer] Ball’s in your court Len.

Mmm… coffee

Posted by Martin on May 2, 2007

An exchange that took place outside my local branch of Starbucks (well, one of my five local branches) this morning, as I stepped outside with a Venti Wet Skinny Mocha with an extra shot in my hand…

Homeless person (looking at my cup): Excuse me… do you have any spare change?

Tubby Christian holding Venti Wet Skinny Mocha with an extra shot: Er… no.

I wasn’t lying – I had spent all my change (over £3) on the aforementioned drink. Though it tastes strangely bitter this morning.
