Very odd..

Do you suppose that there are some people out there who feel so compelled to sing along to music playing on a personal stereo that it overrides any sense of self consciousness or consideration for others?

I only ask because a woman at the bus stop just now was loudly humming along to whatever was in her headphones, in earshot of several people.. And I can't really imagine doing that..

Because it's early and I'm feeling uncharitable, I could speculate that because she's large and unattractive, her coping mechanism involves ignoring what others think of her, leaving her free to act as she pleases safe in the knowledge that she needs no validation. But I can't know for sure if that's what it is without asking her, for which I would not be thanked..

And speaking of unattractive people, I've noticed that at 6:30am, not a single person riding the bus is actually good looking. It depresses one after a time, because it just makes Cardiff feel that little more hopeless and alien.. And the train isn't much better..

I am reliably informed that it would be okay if there were attractive people to brighten my journey.. According to Naomi, the saying "I don't mind where you get your appetite from, so long as you eat at home" (or similar) applies here. Though I've come to realise that the Internet is most likely excluded from that.. In fact, I suspect that it's more like "I don't mind where you get your appetite from, provided they have a strict policy against serving you". Which doesn't actually sound unreasonable, so that's fine by me..

And in closing news, Metro seems to have invaded Cardiff.. They provide them on the bus, they have people giving them out at the station.. Then when I get to Bristol, they try to give me one there too (so to speak).. I bet you could make a sinister b-movie out of that, with sufficient imagination..

Anyway, I should be catching a train..

Fantastic :D

It's a valid theory ;o)

Glad to see you're up and about :o)

Indeed. I would have slept a little longer, but I think your shirt must have broken my eyes...Every time I close them I see flashes of neon blue :oP

(taking a look at map generated from Long/Lat)

Interesting. Cardiff looks ... complex to navigate :)
