around shades in East London towards the end of November. I had to mess
with some I already had, bending them inwards and upwards to get that
As Agent Smith points out, the ear mike is essential. This I created out of the little curly lead/cable that stop folks from wandering off with pens after signing at the shop counter. This I chopped from the 50p pen I found in a tat store, and wrapped around the 'phones. A dab of sticky tape behind my ear and that was it. Instant CIA goon.
Essential Agent Observations: despite 300,000+ protestors, not one will jostle you, jump ahead, push in, or in fact engage at all except behind the lens of a camera. As Mo pointed out, they probably know it's not real but there's always that residual doubt... Are you feeling lucky?
(In fact a few people came up and asked if I really
was an agent. There was me thinking my outfit sucked 'cos I didn't
have a full-length coat and properly black shades!)
Several other Agents were sighted, though only one to my knowledge taking pictures of himself in the British Museum men's toilets.
Mission Report: Reality remained war-stricken but consciousness was altered somewhat during a superb post-event meal at the Thai Garden.
Overall: Mission Successful
