Men doing crazy things in planes  
Firstly, happy birthday to morbid_sparks!

Secondly, spent today in London at the Red Bull Air Race. For those of you who have never seen/heard of it, it's an event where some very skilled pilots fly very low and very quickly through a series of giant, air filled bollards to see who can do it the fastest. Very exciting to watch. The London race takes place over the Thames down by the O2. The weather wasn't all that great (quite showery) but it did make for a very interesting show - quite a few bollards hits (they burst and collapse when struck). Too tired to say anything more than it was good.

Funky picture.

Day's been a bit shitty, really, culminating with Mum breaking a bone in her hand.

Brilliant! I'd love to see that. We're going to the Leuchars air show soon but I doubt there'll be anything as crazy as these guys :)
