guerrilla gardening

I read this news article about a guy who calls himself a Guerilla Gardener and I thought it sounded like something a few of you might like the idea of :) Actually, I even like the idea of the really simple seed dropping attacks. That’s even easy enough for me.

An army of self-styled guerrilla gardeners is growing across the world, fighting to transform urban wastelands into horticultural havens.
They work under the cover of night, armed with seed bombs, chemical weapons and pitchforks. Their tactics are anarchistic, their attitude is revolutionary, their aim is to beautify.

Through an otherwise unrelated series of links, I came across this page with a very long list of euphemisms for condoms. There are a lot of pretty silly names there but some of them are quite amusing. I think my absolute favourite is cumbrella, it’s just such a simple change that makes perfect sense :) I also liked embryno and third leg trouser and I like the rhyming of zucchini beanie and the quite simple wank tank.

why we write

I can’t remember now where I came across this, but it’s an interesting blog being put together by some TV writers. Each day they have an essay by a different writer talking about why they do what they do.

Why We Write is a series of essays by prominent – and not so prominent – TV and Film writers… and by people like you: writers and those who hope someday to call themselves writers. Conceived by Charlie Craig and Thania St. John, the campaign hopes to inspire and inform all writers.

They say they hope to continue at least as long as the strike continues. While the essays are very interesting, I have to admit that I hope they don’t get to post many more – I miss my TV.
