Bits and bobs:

1. British expressions are much cooler than American ones. Thanks, Brits.

2. Yesterday's post in which I sought an LJ user to impregnate me was in fact an April Fool's Day post. A number of people, including my wife, seemed to think that the post was convincing enough that it could have been real. I was really quite disturbed to learn that my LJ persona is apparently such that people are willing to believe that if I were seeking a man to have sex with and to father my child, my first instinct would be to post a (public) LJ post about it. I became even more disturbed when I thought it over a bit and realized that people probably aren't so very wrong to believe that.

3. All I want out of life right now is a fresh granny smith apple. Sadly, the 7/11 is the only purveyor of granny smith apples in walking distance and they are not really a viable option because the particular apples they have on display seem to have been plucked from the tree in 1974 or so. The world is a cold, cruel place.

4. Have a poll:

True or false: In the absence of a real granny smith apple, my best option at this point is to buy a bag of Sour Skittles, which include a green apple flavor.

True -- this is obviously not just your best but your only option
False -- Skittles do not equal apples
I vote for the witty option that would have gone in this tickybox except that your boss came in just as you were writing it, causing you to become flustered and forget what you were going to write

On an entirely different note, are you aware of the gay hanky code?

Yes, it is an integral part of my romantic life
Yes, I know it
I am aware of its existence but I'm not familiar with the particulars of it
No, I've never heard of such a thing
Didn't that go out in the '70s?

5a. Yes, the second question is entirely random and prompted by curiosity.
5b. I am pretty annoyed that my boss made me forget what I was going to write because I wasn't even on the schedule when he came in, and I had every right to be on the Internet. Unfortunately I am on the schedule now, so I must bid you good day.

Good day.

That's... um. Yes. There was-


(Who was, in fact, just being a pompous idiot. Or a real estate agent, with words like 'cosy' and 'w.c.'; did he talk about the view? About being convenient to public transport/schools/shops/whatever else?)

AND THEN YOU DECIDED TO PLAY HEGEMONY TOO, Which should've been a give-away, really: if ever I start ranting about any kind of hegemony, it means that whatever follows is utter nonsense, but I'm meant to be using SHOUTY CAPS right now, BUT THEN I GOT CONFUSED. SO... UM, GOOD. DON'T DO IT AGAIN? WHATEVER IT WAS.

Plus, being the third of April, my ethical responsibilities demand that I once again start treating the whole world like a joke now that everyone else has had their one day of it for the year.
