Ok, this quiz
will make no
sense at all if you're from outside the UK, it's debatable if it makes any sense at all, but I enjoyed myself. Turns out I'm a confirmed Southern Fairy:
"Alwight, guvnor? For you are a Southern Fairy. Thank God you didn't turn out to be one of those northern gits, eh? Too many of them around for anyone's liking. And, don't even get us started on the Scots. Celebrate down your local bar with a cool pint of lager. That costs £3.00."
I'm so proud. Where do they find lager that cheap though?
Final musical post for this Friday; chill out a little with the Kings Of Convenience
. Oh dear...another
album for me to buy.
I travelled the world and the seven seas...sweet dreams
flash animated through a half hour dance intro, the full song and even after the music stops. Rave
a little bit on Friday you crazy cats. Big box, little box...etc.
Let's Rock! What lazylaces knows about rock music could quite happily be written on the back of a particularly small postage stamp (remember them?), but this is musical Friday and this flash animation
has spaceships and stuff as well as rock
so how could I resist? The music is quite possibly by slipknot
, but I'm clueless so don't rely on it.
Visual Aside: I'm trying to do that rock hand symbol thing where you curl up your fingers and stick your little finger and thumb out...in rock terms I am pathetic.
One for the master
....musical flash madness for a Friday.
Find out what you've been doing with your life

See some of the natural world whilst you're cooped up at your 'puter with these fine wallpapers
. Bonus kudos points for anyone who can identify all the homestarrunner
characters hiding in the foliage on my desktop from the mini-pic above.
A bit late, or very early, for a musical Friday post, but I've just discovered (and downloaded) Wire Daisies
who I'll make an exception for as a). They sound great, b). They're from the greatest county in the UK - Cornwall
(the fact that I was born there doesn't influence my opinion on this one at all). Pop over and have a listen - some great tunes for a Sunday evening.
Continuing what is now an almost regular feature, this Friday's musical interlude features the smooth sounds
of Pink Martini
. The music is as lush as the description:
"Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brasilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini."
It's a Friday rhumba in the lazylaces household [thanks to ritilan]!
If you haven't seen it already and you've ever so much as e-mailed the person sitting next to you at work you'll love instant mess
. I especially like the football game at the end. We've all been there...haven't we?
BTW - I now have an AIM account if anyone would like to chat - screen name lazy graeme - drop me a line with your details and I'll watch out for you.
Modern day Britain is a classless society supposedly, so it's slightly strange that we all know exactly which class we belong too, and could probably make a fair bet on what class any random person we bumped into in the street belonged to as well. Not that we categorise or anything - no siree. Anyway if you're having trouble deciding which exact sub-category of middle-class you belong to (not me obviously since I'm a toff - no question) this is the on-line quiz
If I were middle-class, which I'm not, I'd apparently be part of (Jamie) Oliver's Army (worryingly I own a Jamie Oliver book). All this of course will make no sense if you are from outside the UK. I would explain, but it would take a very long time.
