Good Vibrations

Went down to Princess Grace’s Hospital in Baker Street for a scan (result: everything perfectly ok), where the nice nurse said: Ooh, I like your shoes. These shoes are the fashion accessory of the season as far as middle-aged ladies are concerned. Every time I wear them – which is a couple of times a week, some nice lady comments on them. They’re not boring and they don’t say I’m a man-chasing slag.

Mo got back from his camping trip in Wales in one piece. My little boy is all growed up! Have discovered brilliant locale for his 11th birthday party – Mercedes Benz World in Surrey. When LSS showed him the website, he started vibrating visibly.

Speaking of visible vibrations, there were a few people having a meeting at the breakout table near me the other day. One of them, a Chinese girl, was vibrating visibly, entirely unconsciously. It was the most distracting thing. How can you have a serious conversation with someone who is bobbing about like one of those bouncy toys on springs?

I visited a friend this morning who has a new teeny tiny little baby. I held her most of the time we were there and I was reminded how much the little ones move. Constant motion, really, from little squirmy vibrations to out and out full-body twitches, even when they're sleeping.

I'm glad I don't vibrate. I quite like sitting still.

Is a 'breakout table' a place where, when the main meeting stops for while, the inmates are supposed to go as a small group or syndicate and pretend to give a toss about the crap going on in the bigger room?
I had a scan 5 weeks ago now and still havent had the result. I am damn sure they have lost the file again.

No, it is the table where desperate inmates go to discuss their pitiful escape plans, which normally involve some huge statistical improbability, like winning Euromillions on a rollover week.

Well done, Mo! Is the tank party off then?
