introspection

(High) School in a nutshell.

Found in a box of stuff from when I was 14:

Dear Helen!!!
I will miss you even though you don't really like me and I don't really like you. Well I do but thats beside the point!!! I'll miss you loads.


Liar.

You should've stuck with the first sentence, at least that was honest.

You'd known me three years, and still couldn't be bothered to get my name right.

I don't have a lifestyle, I have a life!

I think I'm going to drop compersion off my reading list. I was reading it because it had more mature posters than polyamory, but posts like this make me change my mind. What can I say: while random freeform posting is all very well for your own journal, I kinda like coherence in community posts. (Does that make me a hypocrite?)

And there are so many wrong assumptions in this post I can't even be bothered to start flaming it. For a start, apparently everyone who reads compersion is in America and has the same "lifestyle". *hangs head*, goes back to alt.poly circa 1997.

For those who are wondering, my lifestyle is based far more around geek, extrovert and childfree than it is around being polyamorous. I suspect disposable income plays a big part as well. Who I sleep with seems pretty far down the list.

Official. The coolest geeky link of the week.

What if South London had a decent Tube network and it was north of the river which was neglected? Link to thekumquat's journal and comments, including several from me.

I fully expect this to make no sense to people who aren't very familiar with London's geography. In a one sentence summary, the current London Underground involves lots of places that aren't in London and lots of train line that isn't underground. It is also very heavily biased towards places north of the River Thames, whereas those of us south of the river have to make do with "main line" trains - which are significantly less reliable. (And bearing in mind how reliable the Tube is, that's saying something.) Damn, that was a three sentence summary. Oh well. I could geek about London Transport for hours - my only limiting factor is lack of time. *hugs shelf of excessively Tube-spottery books*
