About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

E is for Eye Glass

A great favourite with novelty shite producers and issuers, it works; vaguely, and kids love them, where/why the common key motif though, is a mystery to me, sometimes the multiple sets have actually got different levels of magnification, sometimes it's a stack of identical glasses!

That's it really: novelty magnifying glasses in different shapes, plastic, tat!

I do remember having my share of these little plastic dust collectors in my day!

I would hope everyone does Ed...it'd be a strange childhood without some plastic caca about the place!
