Exterminate! Exterminate!

This is a Dalek.

This is someone's interpretation of a Dalek in cake.

And so, apparently, is this.

More horrible cakes at this wonderful site.

What exactly do you want to film me doing?

From a cocktail party I went to on Friday night at a model agency.

Dismembered body parts – with lovely nails

The display in the window of a new nail salon in Kings Cross. I've never seen fake nails for toes before.

Making a scene

Two people are having a fantastically heated argument right outside my house. When it started I thought I was going to have to call the police – it sounded like he was going to kill her. Then it stopped really suddenly.

It started again about five minutes later, but the strange thing was they were having exactly the same argument. I mean, it was exactly the same words, same intonation. It stopped again, then once again: exactly the same.

I just stuck my head out the window: they're not alone out there. There are about 50 other people in the street watching this argument over and over again because they're making a movie.

Searching for smears

Apologies to all my regular readers – hello east coast of India! hello person in Sweden! – for the lack of posts lately. I'm launching a new magazine and a new website on 16 October, so busy is an understatement.

Anyway, I was cruising around the Barack Obama campaign website and there's a page devoted to correcting false stories about the candidate, including this gorgeous search tool.
