This weekend was Matt‘s birthday, someone I have worked with for quite a few years now and have enjoyed many a time with. One of our achievements was inventing The Sandwich Game way back in ’03 , which although seems a bit silly, saved us a pretty penny on lunch sandwiches!
For Matt’s birthday he organised a trip to Wimbledon dog racing to bet on dogs running around a track. It was a fun event although I must admit I lost all my money as none of my dogs seemed to have the ability to win! I applied a ‘past performance’ measure where I studied the form for a race and then based on its previous winnings bet on that one to win. The odds did not seem to reflect this (IMHO) obvious trend!!
Also this weekend we made a little trip down town to get some things from Harrods. Unfortunetly the tube was closed to Knightsbridge so we had to get the bus. I took this shot through the window of the bus on the way which I thought was pretty cool and hence placed it on DeviantArt.
Picadilly looking down to Hyde Park Corner – January 2006
Nothing else has really much been happening due to the fact that January is the longest month without getting paid and as such no ££ for doing anything really interesting, I also have to save for the world trip in three weeks time!!
