My hairdryer instructions said that one should not use the hairdryer when asleep.

On my way to work this morning, I discovered several lengths of police "do not cross" tape draped across the road leading into Clerkenwell Green from Clerkenwell Road. Traffic & cyclists who had been about to turn out of the Green and onto the road were paused on one side of it, looking confused. None of the other roads in/out of Clerkenwell Green were cordoned off. There were no police officers to be seen.

After looking around (along with three cyclists and a bemused van driver), I walked around the cordon and continued on my way to work. There were no other signs of incident.
Thieves, arsonists and deserters.

Massive great clap of thunder early this morning. Looked out of the window: blue sky. An explosion? Nothing on the news :D

The officious spellcheck feature in Outlook just tried to change "parmigiana" to "ptarmigan".

A web site I was browsing started to play background music. And it was the same music I had playing on my CD player. Almost exactly in sync too, I almost didn't notice!

That's because you didn't use an upper case "P" :D

Adjacent items on page 2 of the Times' Metro section today:

-hundreds of chickens spilled onto the New Jersey Turnpike

-boa constrictor killed by commuter train

So I ask you, why do you think the chickens crossed the road?
They're really rockin' on Bandstand.

Can't see what it is on the right.

Is this going to be called political? :D

Not being able to see what the thing is on the right, it wasn't clear, although the reward did seem a bit low :D
