Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

Walking out today at lunchtime to find some lunch in the City that costs less than £10, isn’t smothered in cheese but is vegetarian (NB - this cannot be done), it was like walking into a scene from Children of Men. A scene from which was filmed on the street I was walking down during my lunchtime yesterday, but thankfully nothing blew up.

But there were branches flying all over the place, which was weird because I’d never noticed there were so many trees before. Buses were on a go-slow, traffic was backed up, the streets were filled three-people thick with designer suits and teetering high heels being blown into the path of the very slow moving traffic. In the background, many, many sirens were going off, car alarms and house alarms joining in the echo, and generally it was all a bit Dr Who post-alien-landing.

I did the only thing a sane person could do. I bought a milkyway, and went back to my desk to browse eBay.
