International Jet Set

This post is very late; but very late is better than never, right? And I’m in a good mood, feeling ahead of work for once (Locke: you may be a godsend to future moronic libertarians, but at least you were concise) and having had a moment of ‘awwness!’ earlier today in the sun, standing on a bridge over the Cam, looking at the punts go by and thinking how lovely and beautiful it all was. That and I was sipping a chocolate milkshake at the time. So without further ado, my answers to the shuffle music quiz, since I last did one almost two years ago. I’ll skip the ‘rules’, since I think you all know them by now…

    We need some sort of secret handshake for these moments of sibling connectivity

    Nice life purpose. (Except that, really, you should give them to the Palestinian girl instead! The situation has changed, Dominic, the situation has changed.)

  4. Abbi says:

    I am most disturbed by the fact that according to this you seem to find the idea of a partner with a propensity towards incest attractive!
