Listen in, listen Ian!
I had an adventure in North London tonight. I got delayed at work until six, then I set off to collect my camera from City Link at Staples Corner. I decided to follow the TfL recommended route, and completed the first part of it to Willesden Green easily enough. I had to get the 266 to there, but when it turned up instead of going to Brent Cross shopping centre, it was only going to Cricklewood bus garage. Bah. I eventually got to Staples corner, and then had a bit of an adventure getting to the other side of it. It's not really designed for pedestrians is it? City Link found and provided me with my parcel with the greatest efficiency - well done them - and then I had to get another bus back. This was supposed to go to Turnpike Lane, but was only going as far as Arnos Grove station. 2 for 2 there, well done the buses. From there I got the tube to Wood Green, where I can get a W3 home from. One turned up almost straight away, hooray! It said "Wood Green" on the front. FFFS.

Still, I've got a new camera now! It's small enough to fit comfortably in a trouser pocket, yet it has a 10x zoom lens. This makes it a bit better I think than my current 12x zoom but far too big to carry in nearly any pocket camera. I suppose the next camera upgrade step from here would be to get a digital SLR. Maybe in a couple of years or something that would be nice.

Also, I ordered an XBox 360 and GTA IV bundle today. Hooray, I'm going to shoot whores!

Can I ask how much you paid for aforementioned bundle? GTA is an ambition of mine.

I paid £199.99 but they appear to have stopped taking orders for it.

When you get your XBox, it comes with a one month Gold trial of Xbox Live. Once you've got that set up, let me know and I'll add you as a friend, and then we can join multiplayer online games together!

Those TfL recommended routes always strike me as similar to taxi-drivers who use GPS instead of The Knowledge - you end up taking the longer way round.

Don't worry about the TfL route planner, you'll soon be casually carjacking your way home.

Bound to be. Apparently it's completely impossible to play this game without being influenced to replicate your actions in real life.

Jealousy fuelled pah! As far as I can make out the PC version should be out by Christmas so I'm going to employ my well-honed self-denial 5k1ll5 until then. Probably.

tip for you: when expecting a delivery which is likely to turn up while you're at work get it sent to me instead.
