Weblog entries for 16 January 2003


My patience is tested

Regular readers of my web site will be aware that Matthew has embarked on a Dave Gorman-like test of the Actimel Challenge. I mentioned to him the other day that he really needed a control subject to compare his results with. As if to prove me right, here is the perfect example of what not drinking Actimel can do to you.

This morning I attempted to buy a new travelcard from the machine at Stockwell, but April Fool's Day seems to have come early to London Underground and it swallowed my card.

I had to stand there for ten minutes while two members of staff tried to free it, and then to add insult to injury the machine was declared out of service and I had to queue up at the ticket office window to get a ticket.

Needless to say this has not put me in the best of moods for the day. Clearly, the fault lies with Actimel. I'd suggest boycotting them, but I fear it would do more harm than good.
