They descend. [20060529|10:57]
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
[Tags|, , ]

Tis the season. The season all your stateside friends and relatives suddenly remember that you live in London and they've always wanted to go to London. Then they realize that accommodation in London is very expensive. As of yesterday, the Hotel du Expat is now open, and the Welcome mat is about to get worn to shreds. I won't be around these parts much for the next month, because most people seem to regard "watching me dick around on the internet" as a crappy way to spend their holiday. Bastards.

As a consolation prize for the lack of comments, I show my love for all of you via Tacky World Cup Merchandise, Exhibit B.

In case you can't tell, this is a computer mouse in the shape of a lady's torso, wearing an England shirt. I found it at Foyle's bookshop.

Dude. It's not often computer accessories can render me speechless, but, dude.

The breasts are not actually separate buttons. Also, no nipples. Sad.

The merchandise people have sunk to a new low.

Yes. I have yet to find anything worse than this, and I've been looking.

The solution to 'watching you dick around on the internet is boring' is easy.

'Okay. Walk down that hall. Turn to your right. Open that door. Go down some stairs. Walk around a bit. Ta-da! You're in one of the coolest cities in the world. Now shut up and let me get back to the internet.'

Haha. The problem is, a lot of these people seem to be more interested in spending time with me than in the city. Bastards. ;-D

Well that's your own fault for being so interesting and wonderful. :P

This is so tacky that I think I might need to own it. Any time one of my friends wears their foam hats or suspenders with Cubs logo on it, I could laugh knowing I have the king of the worst merchandising...

My thoughts are with you in your B&Buying lots more food period. If you feel like escaping to 'somewhere inside from the cold without having to buy a drink' feel free to pop around and you can sit on my couch being ignored while I play on the internets.

Not working in an office has severley deprived me of people to ignore.
