What I did in November 2014

Saw a house that was melting. (Alex Chinneck's A pound of flesh for 50p).

Walked up the narrowest street in London - Brydges Place.

Went to UX Bookclub at Pivotal's office and discussed A Moment of Clarity, by Christian Madsbjerg and Mikkel Rasmussen.

Ate the largest cake sculpture in the world. (Well, a slice.)

Looked at print outs of an artist's sleep cycles and other exhibits at the Unoriginal Genius exhibition at the Carroll/Fletcher project space.

Ate papaya ice-cream.

Wandered around Jubilee Park near Petts Wood with my mum, looking for goldfinches and oak trees.

Ate a persimmon that was actually ripe and delicious.

Saw Disobedient Objects at the V&A Museum with braisedbywolves.

Went to the Red Bar and ate sweet potato doughnuts and drank a Pandan Mule (Pandan leaf infused Wyborowa vodka, lime juice, lemongrass & ginger syrup, kumquat, ginger beer.)

Went to the Mini Maker Faire at Elephant & Castle with deathboy.

Went to the NaNoWriMo mid-month meet up at the Melton Mowbray pub and had some fun conversations.

Bought a Pebble smart watch and made it display "Hello, World!"

Went to the Garlik Christmas party at the Elusive Camel, and then Kazan for Turkish food, and then the Cask pub.

Had a potato installed in my kitchen.

Played Quixx, Apples to Apples and Carcassonne at the office board games night.

Walked by the river in Richmond and looked at lichen. A heron stood on an obelisk on the Meridian Line.

Made Japanese style pickles.

Walked from Mill Hill East to Finchley Central on a tube walk.

Went to The Research Thing at Moo's office, which was a meet up about UX research and had the theme of e-commerce. Saw coffee art.

Ate packing chips.

Talked to deathboy's bear who spoke back to me, and watched a YouTube video on his smart watch.

Wrote a novel of more than 50,000 words for NaNoWriMo.

Surely the most important thing any piece of tech. should do is be able to greet the world!

Brydges Place - I know that alleyway, and I've walked down it at least once; but it never crossed my mind that it's an actual street with a name.

I'm sure there are wider alleys: the distinction must be either that a street has (or had, befiore pedestrianisation) a vehicular right of way; or that a street can be a postal address and an alley isn't.

Brydges Place was in a guidebook: Secret London: An Unusual Guide.

Other sources say Emerald Place is the narrowest though, so I wonder why the guidebook went with Brydges Place? Maybe you are right that there is some sort of distinction as to what makes it a street.
