Angry I blew my chance of fame today

So I got up late this morning. First time since I can't remember when.

I'm only working 1/4 of a mile away in an empty house so didn't bother shaving because time was getting on. I was doing some messy work, sanding walls and filling wood etc so I thought I'd put a dirty pair of overalls on to save my nice clean whites. 10.00 am came and needed coffee/smoke.

Went out the front door poured coffee out of my flask and lit a ciggie up. So there I was in dirty overalls, covered in white dust, unshaven with a cig on one hand and coffee mug in the other when along comes the Google street view car in all it's glory

To top it all my van was parked on the other side of the street so it's gonna be a great ad for me when somebody sees that and swings around the other side then sees me in the state I was in.

I'm hoping they only got my lower half because the house I'm working in is about 6 feet above street level

That's funny. One thing I have noticed though playing around on Google is alot of faces end up blurred. Not sure if it's on purpose or just from the quality of the camera and movement? Go look up your local prostitutes. They all have blurred faces. Not that I was searching for them. I swear.

They haven't put the UK street view on google yet. I dunno when they intend to. That car's been spotted a lot around here lately so it looks like they're working hard to get it up and running. I'll have to download google earth again and have a wander around that. I think they prolly blurr out the slapper's faces deliberately. I remember reading that one of them was suing google for showng her photo leaning in a car window (or it might have been a purple van) .

He came back for a second shot! I caught the swine on my phone camera. I was just leaving the end of my street in my van and saw him sat there. I think he was wondering if he was gonna fit under that low bridge ...

Lol - Nahh we've got an early warning system in our town for him. That's one of the benefits of living in a small community. If he's spotted coming then the farmer pulls his tractor out in front of him and chugs along at 2 miles an hour while mrs Mcfee lights the bonfire so we all know he's on his way and can turn the tellys off
