It reminds me of the first place I worked in, having graduated.
Design consultancy. Bank Holiday weekend.
Carpet in lift misted with water and watercress seeds added at close of play on the Friday.
Tuesday morning - everything GREEN ;) In the lift.

Just found this languishing in a rarely-visited corner of my desk:



2002 Gerolsteiner bidon that bounced off my knee as the Giro went through Alsace in 2002. Never washed. It was OK last time I saw it.  Wonder what those guys were drinking.

Postcard by Mr Larrington, on Flickr.  If this was an actual proper postcard acquired in a museum and sent, perhaps, by a dotty maiden aunt, it would be a Good Thing.  Unfortunately it's a piece of advertising guff from an estate agent.

Here *is* an actual proper postcard acquired in a museum (in Hamburg in 2014) but not yet sent.

Plastics self-destruct as the plasticisers evaporate or from UV degradation, I think.
But I am no expert on these matters.

I had some PU foam soled shoes disintegrate on me after a few years in a cupboard and Dad has had the same.

Yeah: just found a fan dating from 2003 that has fallen apart in much the same way.

Anyway, this is my delightful Europiccola which I am flogging locally 'coz coffee bores a hole in my gut these days and thanx for the aspirin, doc. :(



I don't really want to sell it but unused it would languish and waste away.

Curious:



The legend on the manhole cover reads "Kanalisation Weissenburg" but the manhole is in the French town of Wissembourg.  This means that the cover dates from the German occupation of Alsace between 1870 and 1918 - unless it dates from WW2, although it's highly unlikely that foundry capacity would have been given over to city furniture in time of war.

So, the builders found that a lamp post was where they needed to put a balcony floor....

A floor guaranteed to give you the heebie jeebies trying to cross it. It is a flat carpet.

I would hope everyone knows that's a horrible carpet, whereas with the stripy fuckers half the people seem to think they're fiiiine and that they're just trendy now...
