“You sound weird… do you have a beard?”

“After life? If I have to go through another life like this I’ll kill myself.”

Any person who vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the public to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way shall be guilty of a misdemeanour.

Hello dear R$N-ness, you’ll have to excuse the brevity of this communique but it’s been a somewhat frustrating 72 hours in the life of mr orange top… cancelled flights, creaking flats and failing internet. I’m going to get this out while the going’s good!!

Egypt a go, go… “an islamic awakening, inspired by the iranian uprising of 79″… khameni’s stirring it up nicely… All kicking off all over. Change soon a come should be a good thing. I need to read more papers this week to even pass comment i think. Listening to the BBC world service feels strange!

I don’t really understand this underwater river??

Writerisms: overused and misused language.

Dispatches from the other side of the pond will continue in length next week once normal service has been resumed. I’m almost there. The problem is I think I can fix everything… but I can’t. And my frustration turns to irrationality.
