Body Parts

Feet and balls

Still getting used to my new journey into town involving the Waterloo & City Line

(which incidentally was the answer to one of a set of tube questions on University Challenge earlier this week -

1. What 14 mile line includes parts of the Hammersmith and City,
District and Metropolitan Lines?
2. What 1.5 mile line with no stations connects Waterloo and Bank ?
3. Which underground line connects with all the others? - thanks to Jon Allen for letting us know this)

It's probably my imagination but Waterloo and City Line carriages seem really small and on the way into work - I'm usually lucky enough to get a seat but yesterday it meant that the trouser parts of a brown suited City gent were completely at eye level for me for my five minute journey. It's that awful moment where you know you should be looking elsewhere but your eyes get magnetically drawn back to spot where you shouldn't be looking - Oh well, better than having a train journey with a
midget's bollocks in your lap.

On the way home on the DLR I was equally fascinated by a woman's particularly ugly long middle toes which looked like they were doing a V sign. Someone should tell her, she really shouldn't wear sandals ever - certainly not in the middle of November.
