There are still a few benches in the square, and here I am sitting, watching the crowd thronging back and forth. In and out of shops and clubs, pausing to admire this or that. Never suspecting that they themselves are being admired, or in some cases judged harshly for their numerous fashion faux pas.
Nothing so ordinary as spots with stripes, but the more outrageous crimes of leopard print with fluorescent pink. Or the hideous monstrosity that is the combination of fake tan and ugg boots.
But there is always balance, amongst the screeching harpies and strutting cocks a few quiet souls pass by. Striding, intent on their destination or ambling along just enjoying the warm evening. A saxophone solo echoes faintly off the building opposite, jazz curling like noodles around the smell of warm Chinese food...
Hello London, I'm back...

I finished Mass Effect 3 over the weekend.
Rarely have I felt such a phenomenal let down at the end of a game...

Very good game, very very good. Involving some hard decisions and a fair amount of emotional investment in the characters.
Will MAss effect 1 and 2 I had to resist the urge to play again just to see what would happen differently.

Now, Nothing. Nothing at all.

Work us dull, boring, and carries the stink of fail about it.
So I am sat in the park watching small children chase squirrels and adults have fun on the swings.

Big hugs all.

Though possibly this one will do.

I need an icon that says

"It's a sunny day.
Warm breezes sprinkle my hair
with cherry blossom"

This will still not make a lot of sense unless you're actually me.
Some days I hate being able to see into the future.


But I'm once more sat here trying not to drip saltwater into my keyboard.
Not because of the overt message in the video above. It's obvious, possibly even lacking in subtlety. But because I am entirely convinced that the scenario would be repeated with every instance of every model a hundred times every day.

Do as you are told or we will kill you.

Other days I want to turn the entire human race into fine radioactive ash and give someone who deserves it a chance.

Do something worthwhile today.

Or we will kill you.

Gentle reader, do come in. There is coffee in the pot and a selection of fine biscuits on the tray. Feel free to indulge...
I'm staying away from the brandy until later, sun yard arm and all that. Once this mood of contemplation is done with I may need a stiff drink.
Contemplation? Why yes, I have a series of things to think about. The one most currently pressing being a most disastrous first "date" which occupied much of yesterday evening. Time which could have been spent to greater profit and enjoyment by cleaning the oven.

Now a date usually implies two people, and a first date often comprises little more than a gentle interrogation regarding the other person's mental state, desires, predelictions, and appetites.
Having a third person invite himself along is unusual, that this is the ex boyfriend is startling, and that the ex boyfriend spends the entire evening oscillating between embarrassing revelations and unsubtle blocking tactics merely tediously predictable given the first two.
I managed to remain polite throughout, even when the fellow suggested a threesome in the back of his van, right here right now in the restaurant carpark. Even when he was trying to come up with ever more outlandish, and frankly unpleasant, sexual variations which he claimed were the mainstay of the relationship between himself and the lass I was failing to engage in any level of civilised conversation.

There may be an opportunity to try again, but if something similar happens again I think I may have words to say, and possibly a body to dump in the Thames.
