A foggy day

Kate and I can't see the river from our flat today.

If one can't see Chelsea, does Chelsea exist?

Play Settlers, not politics


I was going to write something cynical about Peter Hain and George Osborne.

Instead I'm going to go away and play computer games.

PS - Sand is denser than water, right? So quicksand is denser than water? But I float in water...

We love life

There's a drippingly sentiment, nostalgic tune called 'Wickerman' on the Pulp album 'We love life'. It's all about going home to Sheffield and following the river.

I feel like that (well, not Sheffield, obviously, since I never lived there) quite a lot of the time. Nostalgia seems to me to be a natural state of mind. I think I first noticed it when I moved to Philadelphia in 2001.

It's quite ridiculous. I even get nostalgic for Leeds, and I really didn't like Leeds very much.
