Is this the way to Amarillo?

Ms Z and I ended up in London this Thursday night for some coverband pop - well, the 94 year old London Bar off Nuo de la Rambla in Barcelona anyway. Seriously, until you°ve heard "Back in the USSR" in the original Catalan, you don°t know how lucky you are.

In light of this Damascene experience I have at last made a resolution for the coming year: namely to further develop, or adopt anew, a joyous personal eccentricity. While facial tics and garden gnomes are old hat, and limps and penguin fetishes are completely passé, Iàm sure there°s still a niche market in amateur cartography.

Anyone know where I can get a second hand theodolite?


  • You have to ask? Dude...

  • What ARE you talking about? Either you're on a higher mental plane than I (most likely), or you are spouting complete drivel.
    Idiosyncracy is the way forward, however. But don't be surprised if your friends don't want to hang out with you no more.

  • In a previous existence, while enjoying a boca in a La Gracia cafe, Dr Lee and I were very pleased to hear a Catalan version of the Eagles' 'Take it Easy' ('Tranquilo').

  • Surely you're an individual with some ingenuity? A telescope, couple of magnifying lenses and 3 thumbscrews and Bob's your uncle...well at least it's something to do at 3am when you can't sleep.
