Man in Hi-Vis jacket...and finally, customers at the Regent Street Pizza Express in Cambridge were surprised to notice a man in a hi-vis jacket stealing all the water from the restaurant and spilling it out all over the street.

According to witnesses at the scene the restaurant staff were ...somewhat put out... by the affair, but ...continued to provide their usual service levels... despite the fuss.

And now over to Trish for the Travel and Weather.

Thanks Alan; reports are coming in of a nose-to-tail traffic jam building up between Impington and Girton, and indeed every other pair of villages around Cambridge. Our digitus impudicus fault diagnostic system suspects that this may be the result of problems on the A14. On the bright side; traffic on the A10 is reported to be ...flowing freely...; possibly for the first time in living memory.

The international capitalist/communist conspiracy of which I've always wanted to be a member...

We played Monopoly this evening.

Slightly strange game; claroscuro went to Jail on her first way round and emperor had to pay Income Tax (100%; quite Novy Le Cygnan really) on his, leaving me in the early lead.

I picked up a reasonable set of property, with the Browns, Oranges and Dark Blues; including houses on the Browns and one on Park Lane; but in the end claroscuro's Yellows (with increasingly large number of houses) and Utilities got by far the largest amount of emperor and my custom, and she won when I couldn't pay her last rent payment (£800-and-something for a night in Covent Garden).

None of us built a hotel though; it was very strange...

Hair dressing

Can anyone recommend a Cambridge-based hairdressers who are capable of dealing competently with longhaired, beardly geeks? (Preferably without chopping it all off!)
