KOOL-AID: seriously. do you not get the Kool-aid reference?

Really did think the whole “drinking the Kool-Aid” idiom was one everyone would get. Maybe you’re all too young. Maybe there aren’t enough Americans reading this. (For the record, I am not American. Not that there’s anything wrong with that). Right. So. A brief history lesson on cult-leader nutters for you. Okay. So there was … Continue reading KOOL-AID: seriously. do you not get the Kool-aid reference?

KOOL-AID: signs you may be in a cult

Signs plural? No; in my experience, there’s just one sign: You’re not allowed to use the internet. Sounds mad, no? But true. And possible, even in today’s society. In my “church” internet use was frowned upon. Easy for those of us living on base — we simply were not given facilities to access the internet. … Continue reading KOOL-AID: signs you may be in a cult

45 Notes on London – a little more on Harry…

Harry on university types... Do wonder about these Oxbridge types. Do they arrive at university quite normal but transform into typical student types without conscious knowledge, as if is like a cold or some other virus that has washed over them? Or do they make a concerted effort to become cardigan-wearing students? To play the … Continue reading 45 Notes on London – a little more on Harry…

the tribulations of hiring a car

Francesca. That was the name of the girl who served us at a well known car rental outlet yesterday and she's restored our faith in the industry.  I'm not going to deny that I probably got on her good side by mentioning her makeup application. There's no doubt she's of the contouring generation, probably spending … Continue reading the tribulations of hiring a car
