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. :-\
