Ah... yes... naming buildings...

London has 'the pile of plates' or the Mayor of London's office on the south bank.

Then there's the Gherkin - the Swiss Re building, which also got the unfortunate epithet of the 'glass dildo' from its' not so vaguely phallic shape.

The 'Inside out' building is the Lloyds building and 'the harmonica' is Centre Point - a tower block at the end of Oxford Street/Tottenham Court Road that looks like a mouth organ put on end.

I'm not doing the insect squashing any more.. I have made other arrangements. So far, the cat approves.
