Gots mah psihoop back la la la

So. Anyone here live in a city with a street called Clark St that is very long and ends at the water's edge? Just wondering..

Also, driving a Reliant down flights of stairs with switchback landings is a bad idea. I'm pretty sure when my Dad did it, it was in a Hillman Husky (which, according to his stories, seemed to be powered by ouzo), which had four wheels. Four wheels good, three wheels bad. Words to live by.

In other news, it's nice to see less facial hair about the place. In my workplace, it's been replaced by tinsel. Ye gods. I like shiny things, but for some reason tinsel just doesn't do it for me. Funny, that. I wonder if it's that pavlovian thing? Tinsel = Christmas, therefore not exciting like dance party LEDs..

Am I jaded?

I like street view

Only.. every place I lived as a kid doesn't look like it looked back then. The houses, trees, fencelines, letterboxes, road shapes have all changed. I recognise them by the horizons now, and have to paint the rest in for it to fit with how it should look.

Cognitive dissonance ftw.

(ps i think i would have enjoyed doing the job of driving all those roads with the little camera. next time, google, can you ring me please? cheers)
