On my way home through central London last night I saw two sandwich-boards advertising the Evening Standard (a London newspaper). The headlines, conveniently next to one another, read:
"Latest on Big Brother", "Tony Blair flies to the Gulf".
For non-British readers, Big Brother is an inexpicably popular tv series here.
I should have realised before I bought it, but I've lost an entire weekend to Zelda (on the Gamecube). Is there a Zelda Anonymous community? I think I'm going to have to go "cold-turkey" if I'm going to get anything done in the next week or so.
I heard a darkly funny but true story today about a charity for the blind that was forced to close in the '80s due to"financial irregularities". It turned out that the entire board of trustees were completely blind, except for the treasurer. You can imagine the rest, I am sure.
I keep saying this, I know but you couldn't make it up, could you?
