Thank you, that is all.

Ok, so what's this we hear today? The London 2012 Olypics stadium is going to cost half a billion pounds to build! Only to be knocked down after the events are over?! OK, so WTF? They are going to take half a billion pounds, from tax payers, whether said tax payers are in favour of the Olympics coming here or not, to build a stadium for 2 weeks of games, only to destroy the stadium afterwards?

As if to add insult to injury, this is on the same day that it's announced the the government wont be giving out money to help those who are struggling to get by in this increasingly costly world with ever more expensive gas and electric bills. Well that's alright, a few thousand pensioners may freeze to death this winter, but at least we'll have a shiny new stadium for 2012... for 2 weeks. Nice to know the government have their priorities in order! /sarcasm.

Also, how is it I seem to be the only one concerned about this Super Collider machine that's being switched on in Switzerland next week, which has a 1 in 50 million chance of creating a black hole which could engulf the Earth? OK, so it's a 1 in 50 million chance... but that's a 1 in 50 million chance I don't wanna take!

Yeah I tend to get super paranoid about stuff like this, and maybe I watch too much Doctor Who... and maybe I shouldn't have watched The Horns of Nimon last night (a Doctor Who episode which focuses on a black hole amonst other things, that they just happened to be showing on telly), but they can say it's safe until the cows come home, but I'm still gonna be fretting about it all week!

In other news, I'm off to an anti-vivisection demo tomorrow, so wish me luck with that. I was hoping to make it to the protest in Worcester last week, for when David Cameron was there, spouting his bullshit. Unfortunately I wasn't able to go, so was a bit gutted by that, so I am happy about going to tomorrow.

Apart from that there's nothing much else to write about, so I'll leave it there for now, so until next time (unless of course we all get sucked into a black hole and crushed into a singularity by then),

Stay Beautiful,


P.S. Excuse any typos, not slept well recently due to a persistent cold, and haven't spell checked due to terminal laziness!
