we are feeling smug today

30 May

london 6.27am 12.8C cloudy bank holiday monday 2016

today is the spring bank holiday. the one on 1st May was labour day, but i dont see that name being mentioned much nowadays. i wonder why.

this one only serves to remind me of all the horrible things that i have missed by living in london and not going anywhere.the news is full of  huge traffic jams on the roads, and clog up in euston train station. and french strikes petrol shortage making it hell for travellers. not to mention the weather not doing its part, but raining down on everyone. haha. the forecast got it wrong, as usual. scorching, it says. but those of us who live here long enough realise it will never happen as predicted, the gulf stream will put paid to any prediction.

well, it makes me very smug that i chose not to go anywhere haha. i get to feel this way every year, because it always happens like this every year. people dont seem to learn from it, or expect it to be different.  or they forget. or the craving for some hot sun on a sandy beach is too strong to resist. haha.

those who managed to get to their resort early and so are there  today  and have it hot there must be just as smug as me… haha. nothing like doubling the pleasure of a hot holiday abroad when u hear people in uk are having a right old miserable time with pouring rain. haha. so that is two lot of people who will be feeling very smug today.


a kebab shop called lolita, in paddington. bus advert for teenage mutant ninja turtles. i find the title amusing… i dont think they will have this bizarre combination nowadays as a title to anything. in fact, i know so, as there are no new titles with such a strange combination of words.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a film series based on the comic book characters of the same name created by Kevin Eastmanand Peter Laird. The first film in the series, titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, was released in 1990 at the height of the franchise’s popularity and was a commercial success. The success of the film garnered two direct sequels, respectively released in 1991 and1993, and a CGI animated film in 2007 billed as TMNT building on the success of the 2003–09 TV series. The series was rebooted in a new film made by Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies, released on August 8, 2014. The sequel will be released on June 3, 2016. (from wikipedia). though the film is now being shown in uk today, 30may.
