PICSPAM

</font></font></a></font></b></a></font>Favorite place in your town; favorite picture in your house; something uniquely English'.

Favourite place in your town! Do you realise how hard that is to answer in Hemel Hempstead?
I can't stand the place, especially since they knocked down the the theatre that was the only place worth going.
I'm so glad I was born and raised in Watford. I thought long and hard though, and I decided that this is the place I like best:



Favourite picture in your house. I couldn't decide, so it's either the Dragon above my bed which is metal and my mum gave me it,



or the mask my mate sexgoddeshilly got me in Bali.



Something uniquely English. Um, didn't do especially well here. I didn't want to do Fish and Chips or a copy of The Sun.
So it's Bonfire Night fireworks instead.
I know they aren't especially unique, but I bet you don't have freezing fingers and bits of Roman wall in the way.
(This was Saturday's display in St Albans, 'Roman Verulanium'.

Oooh



Aah



Use your imagination...



If you didn't believe me about the Roman wall. (compare and contrast with Roman walls at
Pevensey Castle.



And the finale.




[info]mskakaako asked for '</span>Take a pic of the view from outside your window or your closet'. As I did the view from the window here, I did the my view from my window at work and the closet, as a bonus I also did the medicine cabinet. 

Closet. Items of note include: the ironing board I never use (the ex made the marks on it), the Wyndhams box at the top on the shelf contains all my teenage writing (there's some horrors in there), long black vintage coat from my (more) goth days that I bought for £3 from Oxfam and yes, that is a cauldron (from the Halloween collection) and a witches hat.



My 'medicine cabinet', i.e. box under the sink. Lots of Pro Plus. The wooden box contains plasters.



View from work window. Boring isn't it?



That's your lot.

Chinese restaurants are always good. :)

I love Roman walls and well anything Roman, which is probably why I have a Classics degree. I've been to several of the sites along Hadrian's wall, several villas in the south, and also St. Albans. Neat fireworks shots!

And love the dragon and the mask, especially the dragon.

Chinese restaurants are always good. :)

It's the place I always seem to end up!

I love St Albans. Shame it's too expensive for me to live there.


I'm quite pleased with the way the fireworks came out considering t was such a manky evening. Many of the higher fireworks got lost in the really low cloud.

That was wonderful!

A long time ago onetwomany (at least I think it was her) tried to get people to post pictures of just ordinary things in their hometowns/areas... the local grocery store, the street they live on, that sort of thing. It may seem like totally boring stuff, but it's incredibly cool for those of us who've never been there.

I remember that. I think the mundane shots are the ones that really give you an impression of what life is really like. If you went by TV and films we'd all be living in quaint little villages in sprawling manors, not stuck in a one bedroom flat in an ugly new town of boxy council houses.

BONUS! Heee!

Your closet looks just as organized as my storage closet.
I'm cleaning it today though...after months of festering.

You should come out my way for some really, really good Chinese food. I could take you out to some amazingly good places...cheap too.

I'm going out for Taiwanese food with work friends on Wednesday night. Maybe I should take pictures and do a show and tell!

Work window was indeed very boring. :(
I did a night-time view from my upstairs deck in my journal.
Didja see it?

This is after the tidy up.

Soumds lovely. Never had Taiwanese. What's that like? I've had vietnamese and Korean.

Yes, I did. It's somewhat more attractive that my view, with or without the snow.

Never had Taiwanese. What's that like? I've had vietnamese and Korean.

Taiwanese has a lot of dumplings and noodles.

Similar to Shanghainese food, if you've never had that you're missing out.
Vietnamese is my favourite though. Even more so than Thai.
Sometimes I crave Korean, but it's not something that I can eat on a daily basis.

I'm eating sushi tonight. Hmmm...I've been talking about food a lot.

I might take pics for you tomorrow. I'm going out with friends for Taiwanese and then to DAISO, it's the only branch outside of Japan. Everything in that store is 2 bucks Cdn (roughly how much 1 yen is). If you're interested, that is.



Sounds alright, though I'm not a huge noodle fan - I love rice.

I definitely like Thai best, but the Vietnamese in London's chinatown has had many visits from me and the ex.

Yeah always happy to look at pics of oriental food and wierd Japanese things!

Nice pictures... I love fireworks a lot but my favorite is that Dragon your mum gave you.

I have a lot of affection for my dragon too, especially as it's rather unique.

Lovely pics!

Suddenly, I have a crave for fried rice ;) Yep, that would be my dinner.

Hee. The tempatation to go inside the shop was strong, but I resisted!

I liked the fireworks pictures best! They came out really well. I was greatly amused by your medicine cabinet. Does everyone keep thier medicines in a plastic box? I know I do!

There were quite a few duff fireworkk pics too though.

I don't have a bathroom cabinet at the moment so they have to go in the box. I don't use all of it, just the occasional plaster and the Pro Plus (which is vital).

Er, so silly question, but just what is Pro Plus?

Caffine tablets. Sometimes they are they only reason I'm conscious.

Oh right! :D I thought it might be something all healthy and herbal or even homeopathic. I'm relieved! ;0)

Not much healthy about me.

Hee! Great selection - feel it gives quite an insight into the bogwitch personality. And very pretty fireworks. I do love fireworks.

And I didn't have to wait hours for the pics to come up! ::hugs modem:: I love broadband. If only my writing would be 10x faster too.

t gives quite an insight into the bogwitch personality

I dread to think.

You will be glad to hear that my writing is moving again. I tried to write it all out to explain my problem to you and it became a bit clearer.

Glad to be of help! Especially if it gets me more Spike.

Turns out you'll get a lot more Wesley too. Once i realised that the chapter was Wesley's chapter, it flowed much better. Still plenty of Spike in it though.

Turns out you'll get a lot more Wesley... the chapter was Wesley's chapter

::sulks::

::is somewhat mollified::

But... but... Wesley will tell him things!

Thank you for sharing - they're lovely.
I wonder what makes a happy garden? Hmmm.
The fireworks were especially purtty. And the dragon and mask were also wonderful.
Guess your view from work doens't provide much distraction from work. Is that a good thing?

I wonder what makes a happy garden? Hmmm.

Lots of water and pruning, I suppose.

I was pleased that the way the fireworks came out considering the yuckky westher.

Only when the gardeners are out there. They do such a good job, don't thay?
