    Glad to see she is back home and picked up a bit. Hope you find she's much better tomorrow.

    Dear Diary

    Been given an opportunity to go on a reverse brain washing course by sleazy PR man from the Cotswolds

    Heard about a man with an Alice band who is getting paid £1.2million a month to live near Manchester ( sounds about right )

    I am looking forward to women only cash tills - truncheons at the ready , Wedgwood pottery sale on its way

    Saw a person wearing combat trousers and jumper going into the HSBC bank in Stafford, circa 1:30pm to-day. I would have been on to you had I been able to keep up with your fast pace.

    Just went and had a lovely bag of chips at the town park with the kids before they return to school tomorrow. Picked up some bargain parasols at £2 each from Wilko's on the way thanks to tek-monkey.

    Didn't know the Park sold chips. Or did you nick them off some poor unsuspecting duck, me duck?

    Thanks folks :)

    Good news is that bunny is still with us - she's very much more subdued than normal, but she's been snatching treats off me which is a good sign :)

    Still a way to go though, 9 more days of antibiotics left (she still has the strength to make that task a heck of a challenge...)

    Just now, I attempted to thrust my 35mm into Toble's box, but it was just too tight - and so, I ended up leaving a deposit on the windowsill.

    Mwahahaha ! So I had to go & email him didn't I?! Here's his responce ...

    Hi *littleme*
    I believe this could be some sort of
    a social experiment, although I
    seem to be one of the guinea pigs
    in it rather than the experimenters.
    I did genuinely find an object with
    bizarre properties, but I now
    suspect it was a set-up because too
    many weird things have been
    happening to me recently for all
    this to be a coincidence. It was a
    friend of mine who suggested I go
    for a walk with him, along a specific
    route (which is where we came
    across the object), and it was he
    who then suggested the specific
    wording of the ad (including the
    word "buckarastano", etc.) that I
    should put in the paper. This leads
    me to believe that I have been
    manipulated into playing the part
    of a pawn in some larger plot or
    game (I reckon the same thing
    happened to whoever placed the
    other ad), although what it is, I
    don't really know.
    Some people have suggested this is
    an ARG, which seems plausible, but
    there doesn't seem to be any
    product involved. The Stephen
    Moles book containing the word
    "buckarastano" has been
    mentioned, but that's old, and the
    idea of building an object that
    seemingly defies the laws of physics
    just to promote an old (and free)
    book seems unrealistic. However, I
    do think he has some connection as
    he is the director of the Dark
    Meaning Research Institute (which
    studies "the Buckarastano", and the
    man who came to collect the object
    said he was from a "research
    institute", although he wasn't the
    man in the video on the Dark
    Meaning Research Institute
    website.
    I actually think there is some
    attempt underway to get some top
    secret information out, but without
    it attracting too much attention.
    The reason I think this is because I
    have been shown a recent article
    about research into "the
    B*ckarastano" being suppressed by
    "dark forces":
    http://www.articlesbase.com/
    culture-articles/further-evidence-of-
    dark-powers-hiding-important-
    academic-research-7079530.html
    It seems to be related to much
    older research, which is mentioned
    here:
    http://www.grownups.co.nz/read/
    interests/entertainment/has-the-
    mona-lisa-got-smaller
    The earliest version of the "Has the
    Mona Lisa Got Smaller?" article I
    can find dates back to 2008, which
    predates the Moles "buckarastano"
    book and video by five years, and
    the research relates to stuff from
    even earlier, so this is perhaps a
    new attempt to continue that older
    research which was suppressed. My
    friend said he has made contact
    with what he describes as an
    "underground academic group", and
    since then his behaviour has
    become very erratic, so I will be
    looking further into that in the
    hope that this will begin to make
    more sense.
    That's all I know, I'm afraid.
    Regards,
    Mike

    So strange, I'm tempted to email him back & tell him were all just donuts
