If I had more brain power right now, I'd make some kind of clever connection between several British points-of-interest, including tea-time with jam and James Bond. But it's still raining, and I'm still drinking my tea. So.
Neatorama posted this great article about an artist named Lindi Kirsin commissioned to paint a landscape for a British jam and condiments company. The painting of the Manchester library is, of course, painted only using jam, marmalade, mint sauce, tartar sauce, and a few other eatable spreads manufactured by the company. In the subsequent charity Ebay auction, the lucky winner will receive the painting ("Manchester Preserved", hyuck), as well as a color print of the painting (in case the jam doesn't hold up very long - who paints in jam?). Ant insurance, anyone?
Speaking of ants at the picnic, a British popsicle - or shall I say lolly - company took a vote: Who is the coolest British celebrity (whose image you'd like to lick on a stick?) Women overwhelmingly voted for...Daniel Craig's James Bond. The company obliged by sculpting their new fruity popsicle effigies in the likeness of Daniel Craig emerging from the ocean, bare-torsoed, in Casino Royale.
I mean.I think Craig's a good choice - I kind of want to lick Daniel Craig, and I don't even like boys. Thanks again, Neatorama! It's always a kick.
