Living life in the closet

I come across some pretty wild and wacky stuff in my endless internet nooze trawling (for work). This just about takes the biscotti:

From Associated Press:

Woman hides for year in bedroom cupboard

A homeless woman has been caught after spending a year living undetected in a man's cupboard.

The woman sneaked into his house in Japan and was only discovered after he became suspicious over the mysterious disappearance of food.

Police found the 58-year-old hiding in the top compartment of the cupboard in a bedroom in Kasuya.

The homeowner had installed security cameras that transmitted images to his mobile phone after becoming puzzled by food disappearing from his kitchen over the past several months.

One of the cameras captured someone moving inside his home and he called police believing it was a burglar. However, when they arrived they found the door locked and all windows closed.

"We searched the house ... checking everywhere someone could possibly hide," a spokesman said. "When we slid open the shelf closet, there she was, nervously curled up on her side."

The woman told police she had no place to live and first sneaked into the man's house about a year ago when he left it unlocked.

The cupboard is part of a Japanese-style room, one of several in the single-storey house.

Police were investigating how she managed to go in and out unnoticed, as well as details of her life inside the closet, and if she had taken anything else besides food.

She had moved a mattress into the small space and apparently even took showers, the spokesman said, calling the woman "neat and clean".

Here's something you don't seen everyday - a down shirt. Ideal for nipping to the corner shop for a big bar of Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut.

The down shirt is made from a heavy 60/40 cotton poly outer and filling from down and feathers. Snap buttons with leather enhancements. Chest pocket with snap button.

QPR 1 Chelsea 0

It's been almost a week since the Rs beat Chelsea. I'm still not over it. Will I ever be? The moment when Juan Mata was so spooked by the R block that he had to hand over corner duties to Lamps was golden. For those whose weren't there, here's the only piece in the mainstream media worth reading about the best Sunday afternoon at Loftus Road EVER.

Thumbing a ride home

Props to Prowser the Arouser for the spot

The new Libya?

Sarkozy, Cameron and Nato will all have their fingers firmly crossed that Libya does not turn out to be another Iraq (ie ungovernable, violent and divided). This is a bad sign:

Stay classy John Terry

Mt. Rainier Design Nordic meggings

Phew, the woolen shorts problem (see below) is solved. You wear the shorts with these Nordic bad-boy meggings (male leggings) under them for that snazzy courier look.

Available from Inventory

Mt. Rainier tweed woolen shorts

I cannot possible imagine when I might wear a pair of tweed would shorts but that doesn't mean I don't dig these tweed wool shorts from Mt Rainier Design. They sold out almost immediately from Inventory.

When I fuck up who bales me out?

Not everyone Occupying Wall Street is in a tent fucking. Some people are r e a l l y there to protest against the system as is ...

Slow spotlight dance (who can you count on to be by your side???)

There's SO much to dig here. As my source Xan B says, "its shits all over the X-Factor."
Here are seven reasons I can't stop watching this oh-so tasty slice of American good times:

1) Rich's vintage Nike kicks. So fly.
2) The fact that Mike is thinking of his mum while dancing with his slow dance sweetheart.
3) Pisces' killer vaders.
4) The $ sign in Pisces' hair.
5) Pisces' name.
6) Pisces.
