Is this the future of messageboard conversation.... photo diaries? I can't wait for the next installment of Mike's adventures. What about the rest of you? Come on, lets have a photo series about every one of you.
I can't top Mike's one. However, my sister and her 3 girls came down from the Shetland Islands and we all went to London on Monday. Oh the fun of being a tourist around London with a bunch of kids. Actually it wasn't that bad, unlike the photography. Out of nearly 70 photos, only about half were in focus. Stupid sodding digital camera, the slightest bit of movement and it can't cope. Tis embarassing for my sister who took most of the photos as her husband is a photographer by trade. And to top off the misery of a crap series of photos, I look like a fucking twat in every one I'm in. I should be a model.
The Underground! What a shame that at the exact time the photo was being taken, there was a freak and short-felt Earthquake that totally ruined the shot. Bastard's arse!
Not long in London and a photo opportunity presents itself. Although from this angle, you wouldn't know it. (It's Big Ben behind us). Top row from left to right: Some woman my sister knows from Shetland, my fat cousin Lee, some gormless nob (me). Bottom row: terrible twin one (Krissy), shin-kicking Carla, and terrible twin two (Jodie).
The highlight of the kid's first 2 hours in London: McDonalds. Photo of strange 85 year old black man who smelt faintly of wee and was sitting near my sister omitted due to legal reasons (immigration!)
In a London taxi. Oh whooppee-doo. Another chance for a spontaneous photo. Stupid grin still on my face. Armani should see this photo.
All aboard the London eye. If ever there was a photo opportunity this is it. This photo expertly taken by myself, completely ruined by some ugly old trollop who couldn't find it in herself to get the FUCK OUT OF THE PHOTO. Other woman is my sister.
What a fucking job. Standing still. FOR HOURS. Oh how I wish a dog came along and pissed against the leg of the human statues. I'm in the background unwittingly doing the sketch from the Ministry of Silly Walks, or so it seems. The urge to rugby tackle the twat to the ground passed after about half hour of looking at the third or forth such 'artist' and thinking, "sod it."
Un-bloody-believable. Our exit from Hamleys was initially thwarted by Ali-Twat and his incredible bubble guns. Still, he was about twenty-four times more convincing than the 'Hamley's Fairy' - some ugly European teenage girl/broke student in fancy dress who had the worst spoken English I've heard since the last call I got from some cunt in India trying to flog me a mobile phone.
The rest of the photos are of equal rubbish or just snaps of my nieces smiling cutely, but in vain as yet another photo turns out blurry. They've been to the zoo today. Another opportunity for me to view some out-of-focus photos then.
I feel the impending need to go out and buy a digital camera now. I feel left out.
Is it just me, or does that Ali G look-a-like look more like a thin Keith from The Office?
Oh, and your neices look like they could be really evil if they got the chance....
Yes, go get yourself a digital camera and then you too can post amusing snaps of yourself to send to all your chums. To be honest though, I think a cheap disposable camera is often much more convenient to use.
And yes, my nieces can be evil. Well, cheeky and annoying. One is really sweet, the other cheeky, and the youngest is either kicking my shins and being moody or hugging me the entire time. I'm absolutely worn out coping with them for the week. It's the first time I've ever seen them so I suppose I don't mind too much.
Well not exactly. They're from the Shetland Islands -- they're the most northernly islands in Britain and quite a trip to East Anglia here in England. My sister has six kids and a hectic family run business and it's bloody hard to arrange a visit, plus it costs a bomb to send them down so this has been the first opportunity my sister has had to come down with the girls. They're off tomorrow afternoon so I think I'll miss them all quite a bit. But I won't miss them making me watch crappy American kids TV shows whilst jumping on me all the time! I'm pretty worn out and it's only been a nine day visit.
