Went to London today, one of my favourite places. As I have mentioned before in a previous posting, it's a dirty smelly over-crowded noisy place where everyone ignores everyone else.
If you wanna check, you'll just have to trawl through the old posts, some of which are pretty crap.
Suffered from a little bit of deja vu on the journey down, as I had done the very same one yesterday morning when I went to see the boys.
Today though it wasn't so cold and icy, the music was different (not so much Toy Dolls) and there was more people in the car, as I was on my own yesterday. It was the same road though, until I got to the A14, and then it all changed.
There was three of us in the car, two 41 year olds and a youngster in the back. The CDs that were played included tracks such as Human League (Love Action), Japan (Quiet Life), Spandau Ballet (To Cut a Long Story Short) and Thompson Twins (Love on Your Side).
Well the two 41 year olds in the front, me being one of them obviously, reminisced about life in the eighties and what we were doing when these tracks were out and we kept asking youngster in the back if he had heard this song and had he heard that song. He told us that he had not heard of any of them, which we found amazing.
Until we were reminded that he wasn't born until 1991.
And then we felt old.
Still, I hear that the European Government has decreed that it is no longer acceptable to call people illegal immigrants or assylum seekers. They are now to be addressed as "Travellers Without Authority To Stay", or, in this age of acronyms......well you work it out.
Still, it saves pushing I suppose.............
