I'd make her mother smile, and the kid survive
FML. What a day. Nothing seemed to go right. A class where one student showed up. One. Pouring rain and gales. Cancelled meetings. I even lost my part-time job turning tables round at Marks & Spencers. But, I guess, at least Mono was something of a saviour (you literally have no idea) and I even got served by Stephen Pastel in the record shop bit (who, yes, is still as cute as a wee kitten playing with a big ball of tartan wool by a roaring log fire... awwwww!) who sold me a Stereolab album that might not suck entirely even though it's one of the more recent releases that I didn't buy at the time it came out as I thought it might suck a bit so decided to avoid it and hold onto the glorious memories of albums past and previous (just like.... er, no, so not going there). You know, I really <3 this city. It just restores and revives me somehow. So, no, let's not FML just yet. Please (thanks, you, Stuart).

I'm pretty much the same person. Aren't I?
