I like how everyone's trying to take credit for the Lisa Simpson reference.

Happy (belated) Birthday, Kate!

And on that note, there will be drinks on Friday, and I nominate the Penderel Oak.

So we will be meeting primarily at Holborn Station at 5.30 to pick up chlorrel and her friend, then on to the pub.

I'd say something about the travesty that is the Olympic logo, but much of it has already been said. It's ugly, naff, took far, far too much money to make and looks like the kind of worthless vandalism that taggers put up on walls after London Transport has whitewashed over the Banksy murals.

Ken (who is making it really hard for me to continue to like him) has said: The new Olympic brand draws on what London has become. Which, as it's ugly, naff, overpriced and looks like worthless vandalism,  I guess is kind of true. I just wish it wasn't.

Personally, I'm surprised that it wasn't produced by Foster and Partners. They excel in this kind of ugly cock-up. The one good thing to have come out about this is B3TA getting Goatse on BBC News.

IB-wise, I've been seeping into 'being' ever since PotC3. Maybe this is because suddenly the fantasy world is really attractive right now. (It's not a spoiler to say Dread Pirate Turner! is it?) But I'm doing OK pulling myself out of it, mostly. Although I have been having anxiety attacks when I go to bed. :-\

And the video sets off photosensitive epileptics.

We used to think that there was a supermassive black hole at the centre of the galaxy. Now, however, we know that it is really just a copy of the 2012 Olympic logo that fell through a time warp, and sucks so hard that nothing can escape.

*cracks up*

I'm waiting for them to turn around and say "Only joking! We did it for the Lulz!"

But I know they won't, then I cry.

(So hard, Jim. It sucks so hard.)

If I'd remembered the Suffix of Childishness :) I'd have worded that better.

Oh, and I'll surely see you Friday

So, the article says it cost 400,000 pounds to develop that logo, eh?

Good thing they didn't try to do it for 350,000, it might have sucked...

Friday at 5.30 at Holborn it is. :)

Is it okay if I stay at yours Friday night? Otherwise I'll have to leave earlyish.

Oops, this was to me.

Yeah, should be fine.

Cool. :) Depending what time people start heading home, I may not need to, but I thought I'd better ask. Thanks!
