    I loved the elephant - it was out of this world...the music was beautiful too wasn't it....loved it when the elephant met the little girl on the mall and then they walked together back to the rocket.

    And when the elephant kissed her goodbye with his trunk I nearly cried!

    The whole thing was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. The way everyone followed it around, and the beautiful bagpipe music, and the people controlling all the mecanicy bits, kind of medieval madmax.....and the elephant's wood carving was beautiful and its' leather ears....ahhh

    Yep it's wonderful being able to take over the streets completely and have no traffic isn't it. We should do this kind of thing more often in London!

    Buds and Spawn ...if I can't dance...

    I had a chuckle about all this too - although felt a little miffed that RTS didn't get a mention in the Guardian article (I think there was a bit which went on about how things like this never happen etc..).

    Well good proper good sound system too.

    And just think what we could do with a few of those elephants (harder to hide than a tripod though)...

    I wish i could share everyone's excitement - I think my excitement gland is hardened over and broken.
    I saw a big elephant that looked cool, but five minutes of gawping at it was enough and I went home and forgot all about it til I saw this thread.
    I wish I'd reacted in the way other people did, but as I said something in me must be broken :(

    I did like it!
    I just wasn't as overwhelmed about it as I should have been.
    Funny that, I was overwhelmed with tears by watching Minnie Riperton's widower talking about her early death on the telly on Sunday, but I couldn't muster up much enthusiasm for a giant robot elephant roaming the streets of London.:confused:

    I'm not getting into fights with you for making comments about me. I can't be arsed. It's time for a coffee break with Her Majesty :p

    Ummmmmmm fights? Comments about you?.....:confused:

    I was asking a innocent question based on your reply to my post 'Wonders how many people have me on ignore and why'.... Misunderstanding maybe,or were you just taking the piss when you posted 'Good'?....I thought that perhaps I was missing something and asked you to 'elaborate'.....was a chance you knew more than me. :confused:

    Defo wasn't looking for a fight and I think you'll find it's not really my style to go around the boards making 'comments' about people willy-nilly.

    Hopefully a white one cos I have absolutely no clue wtf is going on here....serves me right for asking an innocent question and leaving myself open to ridicule.

    *thinks about how much she really cares*
