It would certainly appear to have been a highly exciting day out. Well done everyone involved.

A conversation I had in a bookshop the other day.

ME: I'd like to buy this please.

BOOKSELLER: Chris Killen. He used to work here you know.

ME: I know. I read his blog. In fact, he said it was in stock, that's why I'm here buying it.

BOOKSELLER: You're a sad waster who spends too much time on blogs. Actually organising a shopping trip based around something you read on a blog? That's reprehensible. Get out. Get out now.

At least, that's how I remember the conversation.

that thumb's up picture is the best!

you should've braided the hair before going on your merry way.

that hairball is disgusting

sam pink said...

the hair is from someone who was reading the bird room and then experienced such awe that a lock of hair exploded off his or her head.

was it the hair of a man and a woman?

let's get to the facts.

at least provide us with an informed guess.

i think it was a lady's hair. it was stuck to the floor outside a hair salon in picadilly gardens, flapping around. lovely.

hi i saw the hairball. i want to let everyone know that it is chris killen's pubic hair. i cut it off with remmington steele clippers.

I should have taken pictures when my books hit the shelves. Though, I think if I found some hair connected with my books it would have indeed been pubic.
