Obligatory LJ posting of the day...

Not sure what to say... I could tell you what I have done for the past few days, which wasn't entirely uneventful, but I'm not sure of the point. I guess have done a bit... gone out dancing, to shows, to restaurants, etc... kept myself up late at night. Sometime, it seems somewhat productive, especially if I meet people that are perhaps worthy of friendship. Most of the time, it feels like I am still walking the familiar and tired streets that I have in the past, going to the same places, doing the same things, etc.

When I was about 20, I remember saying "I have a lot of fun, but I'm not enjoying myself..." It's the same kind of thing. Fortunately, there is Kirsten, but still, you shouldn't expect a relationship to make everything rosy. Perhaps I am a frustrated idealist who has turned somewhat bitter and cynical, but I think I need to take a good look at all of this fun and decide which elements of it actually make me happy.

Toilet humor...

Are our so-called modern cities falling apart right under our... noses? The day-to-day conveniences of life that we take for granted are becoming potentially lethal death traps.

Case in point... the stunning, collapse of toilets in Glasgow. Glasgow's critical public toilet system, overburdened by decades of heavy usage, is starting to collapse. What should we do when toilets attack?!
