“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”

I’m still alive, I swear it! Have just come back from being sent on TWO consecutive trips for work (that makes both 2 in 3 weeks, and 2 in the last 3 years… when it rains it pours!) But I’m back, I’m loud and opinionated, and I’ve spent a lot of time in airport lounges browsing the web, so here are some fun souvenirs I’ve picked up…

1) 221B is a game Warner Brothers have put together in an interesting marketing idea for Sherlock Holmes the movie. Plugging in through FaceBook (though admittedly we should be a little wary about that one… read the privacy policy!) you play either with a FaceBook friend or by yourself and solve the cases they’ve made up for you. I’m about 3 cases in, and so far it’s exceptionally well done as a game, and hasn’t posted anything on my wall without asking me. Success!

2) Looking for the perfect holiday hobby / birthday gift? Make your own Thing In A Jar! (Note: SO want to put one of these together!)

3) No YouTube this week: but since I’ve been hanging out with fun (and slightly naughty) librarians I wanted to share this one with you instead. Gotta love old ads. Especially old Playboy ads. And double-especially ads that make both smoking menthol cigarettes and librarians cool… (or try at least)

  1. I love the thing in a jar, I, too found that recently and yes, I can’t wait to make my own… green I think…
