A crafty seagull has been ruffling feathers in England, after it was filmed entering a branch of high street bakery Greggs in South Shields. It waits for the automatic doors to open, slips in quietly, picks up a bag of crisps (always the Walkers Salt & Vinegar variety) and calmly walks out without paying.

Twitter is marking 10 years since the hashtag was first used on the social media site by celebrating some of the most memorable uses of the digital symbol.
Former Google and Uber engineer Chris Messina first used the symbol as a way of tagging or categorising a tweet on August 23, 2007, when he suggested the symbol could be used to create group messages.
‘How do you feel about using # (pound) for groups. As in #barcamp [msg]? (sic)’, he wrote.
Happy 10th #birthday, #Hashtag!!
Haha… Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson have gone full anime, doing the cat-ears dance. Elementary dancing, my dear Watson.

My colleague Sandra’s husband works as a delivery driver for a restaurant, and brings home a lot of leftover food from his workplace. Sandra brings a lot over to our office. I’ve had cake, salmon and chicken, all in neat little white boxes. She and her hubby don’t even have to cook that much.
This morning, my landlord’s brain-dead girlfriend decided to warm up the house with the strong aroma of fried eggs and chips (fries). Now I don’t find the smell of fry-ups objectionable at all, but this woman has a habit of leaving the gas on and disappearing off somewhere. No surprises, if one day she burns the kitchen down. Slow clap, Buk Lau, slow clap!! 🍳 🔥 🏥
It’s my first day back to work since my Indian holiday. I’m not particularly sleepy (got a nap on the Circle Line via Liverpool Street) but I’m now going to have to figure out what tasks I have to do.

I have just been reading this fascinating article on Tube stations here in London, then and now. Several stations are mentioned, with special slider galleries showing the station’s entrance in the past and how they look now, side-by-side. The article by TimeOut can be seen here. For those of you curious about which is my nearest Tube station, it would be Plaistow, with Canning Town being second closest.
