On my way back from Heathrow airport where I dropped off my sister. Must have gotten the wrong way but thankfully a smelly (but friendly) IT contractor with a beard in a pink Merc SLK gave me directions on how to avoid Swindon. His long winded rant made it obvious that he had plenty of experience.

How did I know he was an IT person? He gave the wrong direction and charged me hefty fee for it! http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eyes.gif

Alf: she was here on holidays, I suggested that she claims asylum and stays here to only go to Canary Islands for holidays, but she is too honest for that.

I hear that the Canary Islands are popular with aylum seekers lately. I suppose the weather is better than the UK and if you can manage a nice hotel for a few months while you are there, it's worth a try.

But most of them swim/sail from Africa... not Russia... :D

How did Viktor get here then?
