Mostly Internet Madness

Last night Varen & I dutifully hit the gym and then headed off to dinner with DJMike. We were supposed to go to Ghazal's, our fav little Indian spot ... but it has apparently become everyone's fav little Indian spot. One would think you could get away with not booking for a table of 3 on a Tuesday night, but apparently not. So we ended up at our fav little Thai spot, Cranks. Dinner was good as usual and it was nice to catch up with DJMike :)

I also have loads of internet madness to keep you busy as work quietens down (am so annoyed with work at the moment, but I don't want to talk about that right now because I am in a semi-decent mood this morning).

1. Strictly No Photography
This is a site where people can upload photos from all those places that ban photography. These people have sneaked their pics and are reveling in their rebellion online. I find it entertaining ;)

2. Ecological Footprint Quiz
This is quite an interesting little quiz you can do to see what your Ecological Footprint on the World is, basically the effect your fuel consumption, eating habits and existence is having on the planet. Mine is not great (but better than some, I hope). We'd need 4.6 earths if everyone on the planet lived like me. /* guilty */

3. Know Your World Geography Quiz
Now this one is great fun :) I found it via Andy's Blog. And I'm betting some people who try this will be surprised. I don't think I did terribly badly ... but I did only get to level 6 out of 12 with a traveler IQ of 92 on my first attempt and I'll definitely be trying again :) But, my Geography has never been all that impressive, dropped the subject as soon as I could in high school!

> 08:43am I seem to be pretty consistent with this because on my 2nd attempt I got to level 6 again with a traveler IQ of 90. And on my 3rd attempt I was caught at level 6 again with a traveler IQ of 91. Must be a good quiz if my results are so exact each time (although I do feel like I'm learning with each attempt!).
> 10:15am Waahaa, I did it :) I got to level 8 with a traveler IQ of 101. Had to take a break to do some real work, but still - Yippee for me.

And here's the last one just for the sheer bizarreness factor ...

4. Kitty Wigs
OMG, are these people serious? And besides, I've met a few cats, I can't imagine a wig would be their ideal Christmas gift. Anyhoo, I found it via A Welsh View and decided I just had to let you all in on the insanity ;)

1st try level 5 and a traveller IQ of 88.

Will try again later :)

Wow - I didn't get past level 4, and I'm involved in the travel industry. I'm quite embarrassed.

Haven't tried that one yet, but i worked out my carbon footprint. We'd need 3.7 earths if everyone lived like me.

Glad I contributed to a serious deterioration in office work yesterday ;) My mission is accomplished.
