Listen in, listen Ian!
Brr. It was cold this morning. This was because I had a haircut last night,
which turned out to be more drastic than I'd imagined it was going to be.
This is because I'm rubbish at hairdressers. I'm sure that last time I went
to Mr Topper I got a number 5, and it wasn't this severe. The drastic
haircut also made the hair/beard balance all wrong, so most of that had to
go when I got home.

At Finsbury Park station this morning, there was a group of three people
standing talking in front of the entrance to the tunnel under the station.
I mentioned to offensive_mango how it's hardly rocket science
that if you must stop and have a chat, it's not rocket science that you
don't do it in a confined space like that during the rush hour and she
mentioned that London's more agressive than other places. This maybe so,
but I think it's wrong to look at this as a flaw - London should capitalise
on this. In fact, I think London's new slogan should be "London - what the
fvck are you going to do about it?" and we can see where New York
goes from there.

How about, 'London - Did you spill its pint?'.

I think you're on to something here.

Number 5 - surely that's just waving the clippers in the vague direction of the head?

I went for a number 6 last time, with the home clippers, and the damn things mysteriously turned themselves down to 4 halfway through. Only now getting back to a sensible length. Needs tidying, actually...

Last time I had my hair cut I asked for a number 6 and I swear it was shorter than the number 3 I used to get in York. OldBloke called it the Belsen cut.

It was certainly shorter than the number 6 OB gave himself last month.

In London I've seen more people spitting on the street then I've ever seen before. And it's not like it's mostly kids or men or Neptunians or whatever, it's a mix of people. Why? Why do they do it, Tim? WHY?
