The Sole Of Sci-Fi goes in search of the Golder fleece (hint, it’s on a coat hook by the front door)
While Talos is off chasing those pesky Argonauts, he doesn’t notice an even larger menace on the plinth behind him – the dreaded Toe-Los, wearing the fabled “slightly odd, bobble-covered, leather Cons”. Uh oh, he’s come alive…
The mini Talos actually belongs to my mate Jayne Nelson. I kidnapped him when I stayed there last week, and his sword didn’t survive being carted about in an overpacked overnight bag for a day and a half.
On the other hand, we did discover that the little superhero cloaks that adorned the free bottles of Mountain Dew at the X-Men premier last week fit him perfectly. Is it a bird? Is it a plain? No, it’s Captain Ancient Greece!
Tomorrow’s my birthday. I wonder if I’ll get any trainers? Or any donations? Either would be nice. Today’s a work from home day, so I’d better get on with some work. But apropos of nothing at all, here’s a couple of photographs I took at Chew Valley lake yesterday.
• Current total: £770
• Remember this is all for charity, so any pennies or pounds you can spare PLEASE DONATE BY CLICKING HERE.
• Follow me on Twitter to make sure you see what trainers I’m wearing each day.
• If you have any trainers you could donate (either on loan or old pairs you’re getting rid of) which are size 9 (ish – I can do anything from 8 to 10) contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can arrange collection.
• Please, please, please leave comments below! I’m after ideas for mini-challenges, future photoshoots and how I can find enough pairs of trainers!
