Is Essex the place Clarkson is always giving a hard time about for the wings and shiny bits on the cars?

Yup. It's like New Jersey without the veneer of civilisation.

Blocking all users, would be a better option.

Things that have surprised me today:

Giving fashion advice to a high street retailer which will effect a range of products throughout the UK.

My boss being almost apologetic about the amount of work I have on at the minute and being appreciative of everything im doing.

My little 3 year old boy after seeing an egg on the telly, said 'they come from chickens dad', very proudly.... I said 'so if they come from chickens, what came first - the chicken or the egg.. he said 'the egg'... so i asked him where did the egg come from if it came first...

A: the box

I had no come backs for him i was laughing too much .. this was while watching natural world on bbc 2, and him asking a million questions per minute about the animals that were on the telly... makes a change from nick jnr!

It's pretty annoying when people ask you for a crit, you give it then and suggest little things that I think would make it better, then days later you ask them how they're getting on with it they say that they aren't going to change anything because "it was just my opinion".

It's as if they just me to praise their work for fucks sake.

Surely some of the bug guns will, DHL, FedEx, UPS etc. If not a local company might be your best shot.
