Watched a pigeon hop onto a train at Baker Street just before the doors closed. It didn't seem too worried - at least not flittering about shitting all over the place like a lot of people trapped on a wrong train. Guess it will hop off at Finchley Road and fly home - but does it have a home and how will it find it ? Perhaps it will stay on the train until Harrow and make new friends.
Techy's xmas present just arrived so I've checked it & hidden it ready for Monday.
It's a whisky advent calendar. First saw them advertised on Facebook about 5 years ago, what a lovely gift! Techy has had a different one each time. His first was a single malts selection. That went down VERY well.
The last one was 'World Whiskies' or summat which included some Japanese ones. He liked those so this year he has 24 to try.
Each evening he opens the little door and takes the bottle out, and reads out the name, and I look up the drink on the website and read out the Tasting Notes. He feels like a real connoisseur!
As I've previously described, the first time he thought it was just chocolate liqueurs and tried to bite the top off.
He said 'It's funny how they've done it, looks just like a little glass bottle with whisky in!'
Had to step in before he sustained a Fortean Times Strange Deaths-type accident.
