    It gets better and better, the train I was about to catch is cancelled and the next one gets me to Cardiff 20 minutes late, with a half hour walk.

    Couldn't make this tulipe up you really couldn't.

    The weather forecast is dry, so of course it rains on me on the way down to town.
    When the fun stops, STOP.

    Afternoon denizens

    Grey, mild at 9°C, and dry out there today

    Not that I’ve been out there. I just look out the window and at my phone and report what I see.

    Lunch was the rest of the pâté from the other day, once again on wholemeal toast

    Looks like the weather is messed up again: it’ll rain tonight but not until about eleven o’clock, long after I’ve been to the Chinese and back. Won’t catch me that way, weather gods!

    The Polish café has been decorated in the style of a Polish Christmas.

    Apparently it’s a tradition in Poland to put hay beneath the tablecloth for the Christmas meal. I wonder if they’ll do that over there?

    The traditional Christmas gingerbread sounds OK though

    Twas dryish in Cardiff.

    Cost me £10 for the taxi from the station to the Catalan restaurant.

    Food was excellent, and I was a mere 30 minutes late.

    Got mildly pissed and enjoyed the meal muchly.

    Then a stagger back into Cardiff to find a pub that served Brains () and had a table where gifts might be exchanged.

    Then the nephew & wife buggered off, I presume back to Neath, whereas I remained with the adults and discussions took place over how to avoid the traumas of cooking turkeys, geese, and any fecking thing else in the future.

    After which it was time to return to the metropolis, such as it was, i.e. totally fecking empty & dead, with added drizzle and a cold wind just to make it that little bit more miserable.

    Now having made tea which was the poached tomato and scrambled egg thing with 1.05 pints of Good Glengettie Tea, it's nearly time for yet more BTVS and Angel, probably S7 E9 & 10 and S4 E9 & 10 respectively.

    There is (oddly enough) a chart that shows how to watch the two shows for maximum enjoyment but I'm not sure I can be arsed.

    In the Chinese early, as I’m meeting a friend for a drink later

    Are there Other Customers Who Might Want To Talk To You?

    Just askin' like.

    I'm sure I had friends, once, long long ago, and far far way.

    Things were different then.

    Like they didn't put bits of fecking shark in the flu jab for one thing, just mercury.

    I think the lurgie is resurrecting itself as my alcohol level drops.

    I hope the chef is versed in the art of self defence with narwhal tusk?
