That is totally book

Spoke to a mate the other day. Apparently the "kids on the street" have now started saying that things are "book" rather than "cool" as book normally comes up on predictive text when trying to say cool on a mobile phone.

Not sure if I kinda like that or not. I suppose it is a 'growth of the language' thing, and is almost like a pun. I think I do like it on reflection.

I certainly do say cool far too much. Not quite sure what else to say really, and I don't generally fit the 70s hangover surfer dude (apart from the hangover bit, that's often true. see what I did there!!). I do get odd looks every now and again if I say cool in a business meeting. Probably get even weirder looks if I start saying book though.

Fab badge

I've been meaning to post this all week but have only just plugged my phone in.

Granted this may have been fuelled slightly by alcohol and the faint hysteria that usually settles in at the end of Christmas day, but we all found this ridiculously funny.
First is the box, then comes the joy of the badge within:
