Hi everyone out there in t’interweb land. All sorted for Xmas yet? I braved the shops the other day (with assistance from Little Miss – who slept through it – bless!) and got a few more gifts for all and sundry. I was amused to hear Radiohead’s No Alarms being played in one of the shopping malls. It’s a great track and makes a change from the usual Xmas numbers they wheel out every year. Clearly, if you want to retire in a good Rock & Roll home, right a popular Christmas track!
With our new arrival I do find myself thinking more about the future. Or rather, the kids’ future. What will the world be like when they grow up? What’s the ‘next big thing’ after the Internet? Are we – humanity – at the height of our game (as some suggest) or can we go further? What will they be like? Sometimes I have fleeting daydreams of the kids grown up – well, in teenage dirtbag / goth-esq mode anyhoo. I also wonder if they may want kids? Who can say. I just hope we’re around to find out.
“Dad! We’re not goths – that sooo 19th cen!! Can I have three euros for the bus…? Please!!” 🙂
From a me-me-me point of view I never imagined I’d be where I am now. Married? Possibly although I doubted anyone would want a gent with *ahem* certain a hobby. Luckily, I’ve been proven wrong and things are going great. Job-wise I kinda blundered into what I do professionally but I could have done a lot worse. For all the occasional moaning I may do, I quite like my job and the people I work with are a good bunch. Socially, I get out to see friends and I still have ‘me time’ despite family commitments. Hell, I still manage the odd trip out in trans mode…
BTW, ‘en femme’. Some folk like the term, some hate it. Do you think the French say: “la semaine dernière je suis sorti ‘like a bird'”? 🙂 PS: blame BabelFish for the translation – my French is terrible!
Have a good weekend!
