This is London, not Antartica, so why don't the tubes run all night,
You are my Girlfriend, not Molly Ringwald, so why won't you stay here tonight,
This is sixth form poetry not Keats or Yeats, and now we find the part that we both hate.

We love the city because it lets us down, We love the city NOT the suburbs that surround.
We love all the dirty things, that lead us to think, that maybe true love could be found.
We love the city because its how we live, We love the city cause it never loves us back.
We love it all because sometimes, even though they're hard to find, it contains all the virtues we lack.

(Hefner "We Love The City")

I've been working here nearly a month now and I'm yet to meet him.

Decisions, decisions

For the first time in my life I'm a floating voter (this is what happens when the GLA lumps your constituency in with a Tory stronghold but you just can't bring yourself to vote Labour...).
And I just found out I have another vote on top of the 5 I already have as there's a council by election happening too round my way... ah, fuck it, as long as I do my bit for democracy, keep the BNP out etc...

Work does indeed suck

Possibly the most boring and depressing debate ever. Don't these people have other things that they want to talk about at half 7 on a Wednesday evening?

Literature

I've decided the only way to survive the next 2 months of captioning is to broaden my reading habits (being an english lit student and all). Any suggestions?

Sunshine fix before work

(viewed 1121 times)
These are the gardens opposite 4 millbank (where I work), adjacent to houses of parliament... A nice place to come to get my rare dose of vitamin D when, on a rare occasion like today, my train gets me into central london early enough.
Some guys were playing football and pissed another office sun seeker off by hitting her with it (by accident, I think). Cue shouting match. Isn't London lovely in the summertime?

Middlesex Uni Degree Show

This was my friend Myra (and others at Middlesex Uni)'s degree show... photos are mainly from the printed textiles and decoration course as that's what she was doing.I'm so jealous of everybody's talent! When I'm in the position to be an owner occupier, she's definitely having a say in the decor. (oh, and give her a job, someone, she's brilliant!)

A very nice evening, with the added bonus of free champagne.
