As I left work on Friday and was walking along one of the many soulless hospital corridors I came across three elastic bands on the floor.
Big deal I hear you say. I see loads of elastic bands everyday.
But have they fallen, apparently at random, to spell out 800?
Does anyone know of any significance of this number in mythology etc? Like 7 is a lucky number for some reason and 13 is seen as unlucky. The Wikipedia page is a bit dull and doesn't contain anything like that.
What could it mean?
This is an experiment to see if I can get the hang of this adding a YouTube video to my blog.
If you like this video please visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAzjwN_Ht0o and rate it, and even favourite it if you like it that much!
A bit of advertising for my friend who made the video and sings. Also check out his band page linked on the right.

Quite dull really, this was me literally testing that the camera worked as it only arrived in the post yesterday. Quite funny though and I love m'kitty! I made a personal best of power walking from my house to the Post Office as it shut at 6 and I got in from work and found the delivery card at 5.53. Got there just in the nick of time.

Only ennui the woman on the advert says. What do you mean "only ennui"? I think. If you've ever suffered from it you wouldn't dismiss it so.
Ennui is awful. I'd rather have a Nintendo.
Neville is from The Gashlycrumb Tinies, one oof the best books for "children" ever. Edward Gorey is a genius.

A fleeting moment of sunshine! It was a very odd day and we caught the best of the weather whilst on the beach. The little people in the photo are mum and Vince.
Looking south down the coast towards Drigg and Ravenglass there was an odd mist. I think the person in the right of the photo is mum.
"A dirty place to live"
After living in Scotland for just over a year I picked up some choice phrases, some of which I still use, mostly when sharing in-jokes with Vince (who is kindly modelling the street sign above).
For those of you who haven't lived in Scotland and don't know any Scottish slang the word mauchit (as it is normally spelled) means dirty, grubby, filthy etc.
Should you wish to visit this beautiful street Mockett Drive is in St Peters, Broadstairs, Kent.
