NW Room 101 special feature

This occasional feature serves to fill up a gap in my blogging repertoire as otherwise my readership will become negative.

Just to be clear here, it's my blog and if I want to rant and rave I shall and salutations to you all!


What is Room 101?

You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is all pink and squidgy. What we have here is a selection from the NW roving camera during January and February 2013.

First off:

Jacuzzi tubs


Politicians with false smiles*
Smiling people who take themselves too seriously....


Clothes shops that only cater for midgets

High speed rail that costs too much to use, destroys the environment and goes wrong frequently leaving me starnded at Cologne with no spare underwear

*that would be all of them except those with wooden teeth


  1. If it is pink and squidgy - why do they call it grey matter - I wonder?

    I like your eclectic mix of photos Niko.

    And now we know why you've started carrying extra underwear in your coat pockets........ :-)

    1. Remember Brandy that we were created by the blind watch maker?

  2. Mr Nikos:

    Photo #3 is a keeper, you are usually so bashful

    and carrying spare underwear is good. You just never know when you may need it . . .

    as I look at those Jacuzzi's I am wondering what has happened to your bathroom project.

    Riding the Wet Coast

    1. Ah yes, Mr bob skoot,

      Scots people please note that carrying any under wear is good!

      That jacuzzi was a collaboration between NASA, ESA and suzuki I believe.

  3. I get exactly the opposite reaction to your dislikes, so that settles it, I'm coming to live in your Room 101.

    #1: Though that Jacuzzi tub looks like an Arthur C. Clarke spaceship turned inside out, the wife and I hope to be enjoying the pleasures of one tomorrow.
    #2: False smiles? Politicians here (Romania) don't even bother to smile.
    #3: Join us in the Jacuzzi - that way we'll need to heat less water to fill it.
    #4: A well-dressed midget would be a delight to see.
    #5: Stranded at Cologne with no clean underwear - what a party THAT was!
    #6: (I think there's a joke here which I don't get, but I'll eat the sushi anyway....)

    1. I did not mention that the real room 101 is in Athens?

      Are you up for it?

      I'll courier the keys to you αμέσως

    2. Ok, I'm always up for a challenge, as long as it doesn't involve anything too 'classically' Greek.....

  4. Would pants in midget stores really be extra short? I think they would have their own sizing system single platform, double platform, stilleto...

    1. I'm still coming to grips with the implications of your sizing system, me being in the spectrum of special size 110 in the catalogue!
