The Channel 4 wesite has a page listing the companies involved in builds on Grand Designs. This one is particularly useful, being about the underground house built in Cumbria.

Shopping Zen

I can’t remember whether I’ve mentioned it, but for the last few weeks I’ve been working with a few coursemates to create an Oxford Road version of Monopoly. I walked into WH Smiths today and found this-

Fuck the South – a less polite version of Sorry Everybody. I’ve been less convinced about the idea of ‘red’ and ‘blue’ states (fyi Red = Republican, Blue = Democrat) since seeing these maps, particularly the purple one halfway down.

And finally, the one that has entertained me most this morning – How to turn your wife into a house cleaning machine.

No explanation about what happened to the previous four wives. I’m voting for big divorce settlements or jail for attempted murder.
