Silly Sarah

She put her shoes on the wrong feet.

No Snakes On A Tony

Yes, well, whose fault is that?

-- Sarah

No snakes for me

I haven't seen Snakes On A Plane... yet.


Snakes On A Micro Mart Blog

Snakes on a Plane was better than great. It was awe-inspiring.

-- Sarah

New surroundings...

Well, this is strange.

The last time I posted on this blog, I was in the middle of Birmingham, surrounded by entirely different people. As the only full time survivor of Micro Mart from that day (basically, the only one who decided to follow the magazine to its new home), I now find myself in the midst of new people.

So, before I get into the midst of blogging from our new home, I'd like to again thank all the Birmingham Micro Mart team for their work on the magazine. It's odd down here without you all.

Yet a hearty welcome to the new recruits, who are already making their presence firmly felt. Sarah, Tony and now Martin are making their mark already, and it's great to have them on board.

Snakes on a Plane was great, by the way.

Campaign To Stop EVERYTHING

Right, apparently, someone's started a campaign to be rid of the Caps Lock key. In the spirit of banning stuff, here are some things the Micro Mart staff would like to prohibit:-

- Incorrectly used ellipses
- Movies that last longer than two hours
- Smelly people on trains
- Charity muggers who stand between us and our lunch
- Incorrectly used apostrophes
- Pointless blogs
- Too many videos and songs on MySpace profiles (i.e. any)
- Spam that doesn't really contain pictures of Anna Kournikova, at all
- Late-running trains
- Overpriced sweeties

More to come, undoubtedly.

Yeah, Well...

I was clearly too busy watching Chopper Chicks in Zombietown, and other such improbably titled horror movies.

Mmm... Danish

It's come to our attention that Sarah, the Editorial Assistant, has gained access to the Micro Mart blog and is currently using it to promote Romanian boybands.

Anyway, today we discussed the amount of syllables in my name. Simon reckons it's too much. Too much for what though?

Other highlights include buying three Danish pastries for £1 and a lively conversation regarding the finer points of Con Air, which Sarah hasn't seen.

-Anthony Ian Enticknap (eight syllables) -

Numa numa

Song to annoy your coworkers with today:-

Dragostea din Tei, by O-Zone.

Somewhere Waiting For Me...

A new game has gripped the Micro Mart office!

Well, it's not really a game, that would imply there are rules, or some sort of purpose. Basically, the "game" consists solely of one person starting to sing or hum Beyond the Sea and seeing how long it takes for the tune to infect everyone else's consciousness, at which point they too start singing it ...

For hours.

Yeah, we're easily entertained.

(And it's more fun than horse-racing.)

We're Baaaaaack!

It's been nine months, almost to the day, since this blog was last updated. In that time, Micro Mart has joined Dennis Publishing, moved to London, and hired some new staff.

Like me, for example.

The blog didn't really get off the ground last time we tried it -- let's see how we fare this time.

For now, though, it's Friday, we're all very caffeinated (because we've got posh coffee in the office) and I'm off to play Crazy Chicken Kart 2.

Catch you later!
