Weirdly appropriate to last night's Slapper Gear was the kerb crawling I've been practising this week. It took me many hours, but I'm now a master at prowling along a kerbside at 4mph with a quietly humming motor, as I eyeball those waiting willing victims who line the roadside, trying to find the one who will satisfy my keen probing eye ....

I spent forty minutes in the Sainsbury's car park in Charlton last week, looking for number 21. I swear the woman eating a sandwich in her car outside B & Q was about to ring the police. I spent a bit less time in Canary Wharf car park, hoping to find a personalised plate (mostly because they have CCTV, security checks and a ring of steel to facilitate my being thrown out all the more swiftly), but spoiled the artfully 'careless' effect by doing it three days running.

I know where there's a 24 and a 26 regularly parked. I also know there is a God and he's laughing up his sleeve at me, because I've now spotted 721 and 217 approximately five separate times, each. As well as 214, 215, 216, 218, 219, 921, 821, 621, and 421. Fucking bastard god. Stobbit!

Which reminds me, during last night's prostitute impersonation on a Charlton by-road, I spotted a huge car park outside Asda. Ahhhhhhh. That's my Saturday night sorted out, then.

oh na - not another one. so many people are into this, and I just can't get motivated about it.

I did get highly excited when I passed a car just like mine once, and it had a number plate only one digit different from mine. dave has a sibling! ooo!

Have you tried going to a Port where they import/export cars, or, indeed, a car factory?

Hah!! I live in hope of catching you up, I found my 15 yesterday. Of course, here in Northern Ireland I am disadantaged because our number go form 1-9999 rather than 1-999, so it's harder for me

It's not the sort of thing one gets motivated about - it's depressing, guilty, secretive. Which means also that you can never give up.

You started way after I did, you have a real excuse. Besides which, if memory serves correctly, you first heard of it while mooning out of a cab window at the people queuing for trains in King's Cross, after leaving a nightclub where they confiscated all your drugs and soon before the can driver suggested you pay him in a non-monetary fashion. You're way too rock n roll for CNPS. :o)

Yeah, I used to do that too. It becomes a little pathetic and whiney somewhere around the point when I try to persuade people it was what all the trendy kids in my Scouse town used to do.....

I soooooooooo wish I hadn't started with the whole CNPS thing.. I've been looking for no.29 for a month and a half!! There's a number 28 parked at the uni every day. So frustrating!

I did realize it was getting a little out of hand when I almost crashed on the A1 though... Trying to up my chances by looking over the other side of the road as well as my own... CNPS WILL become one of the biggest causes of accidents.. Then the Guardian (or the BBC) will get hold of the story and it won't be cool any more. Because too many people will be doing it.

I think one of the things turning me off I cnps is that it'd involve going out in the sub-zero temperatures. Unlike perpetually sitting online, which my mates treat like a slightly-embarrasing hobby that I have.

Now, a train set, that'd be cool..

Noooo, the rules say you can't do it while you're driving! I was tailgating and waving fisticuffs at a number 21 for half an hour today before the red mist cleared and I noticed the number.
