Grauniad vs Dogwonder

I have been working in the Kings Cross area for some time now (and no, I am not a lady of the night). I have seen the area change quite considerably since working here, many a time was I welcomed to my building by somebody injecting brown muck into their arms or offering certain ‘services’ on my short walk from the tube station to the sanctity of our building.

With the development of the new European terminal at Kings Cross station, the area is gradually being converted from a crumbling Victorian mess into a kinda cool, glass and brick warehouse place.

For some time it has been rumoured that the guardian are to move into the area from thier current location in Farringdon. I have just found out that they are infact moving next door to where I work into a rather new swanky building (where previously sat a 60s modernist cube of brick containing a various storage facilities with a faux Olde Worlde Pub attached to the side).

So cool


So 2006 has arrived. I only really want to post today to see 2006 in the title. So as I am here, I may as well do what all others are doing and attempt to predict what will happen in 2006.

I have already made my feelings clear about prediction, so forgive me for being a little negative about the entire process.

  • A company I hate will not be successful this year and their new product(s) will bomb
  • A company I love will be really successful this year and their new product(s) will do really well
  • This will be the year when four letter anachronism comes into the mainstream
  • Three letter anachronism will continue to grow throughout 2006
  • Three letter anachronism 2.0 finally replaces Three letter anachronism
  • Something something, exclamation point
  • I am the lord of predictions, bow before me
  • I will edit this post in Dec 2006 to make me look good
