    Chips of Plutonium are twinkling in every Sunday

    Tesco's used to be decent but they changed the recipe. I wonder if they've changed it again since.

    Adele - 30

    They could have bolstered the pond with a few of the unsold copies of "30" that are in Walmart for $5 just now.

    Chips of Plutonium are twinkling in every Sunday

    Morning. Just dreamt that I helped Phil Wang to get a job managing a block of flats but it took so long that I had to get time to go at 4 times the usual speed to make things right again. Now I'm going to do the business end of nothing all day.

    Just some interesting stats from Spotify's playcounts

    The Friday List

    The UK: The Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson years + not very good + problematic + infected + broke the law + unimpressed party + electoral poison
