Random thoughts, comments, observations and general fluff from a random bint who left London at the end of September 2004 to embark on a new life and new adventures in Tokyo, land of the cute.... and is leaving mid-June 2010 - and counting!

Tuesday Tuesday

Nine days til Thailand.


Supper was yummy: sliced carrot, cucumber, avocado and sun dried tomato, rolled into crunchy lettuce leaves and rolled into a sheet of nori (seaweed).

Super simple, super crunchy and super delicious.


A colleague today commented: in the US Marines [before going to fight in Vietnam] we were taught how to shoot babies.

Now WHY would anyone share that information???

(the context for the conversation being the woman who had taken a gun with her to church and who shot the gunman because god told her to)


The other day I was coming home in the evening and someone had fallen down the stairs at the station, cracking open their skull. Well, from their lack of movement and flow of blood I'm assuming that's what had happened. So, a member of station staff was 'looking after' them while the ambulance was coming and another person was also kneeling down and looking concerned.

What got me though was the crowd of onlookers. Why do people stand around staring at accidents when there is nothing they can do. That kind of voyeurism makes me uneasy. But not as uneasy as someone in the room telling me they were taught how to shoot babies.

Jo, Jo, Jo we already covered the reason 'why people wait around looking at accidents' thing.

It's just as likely to be because they:
a. Don't want to walk away until they know the person is alright or
b. Because they don't want to walk away until they know there is absolutely nothing they could do to help

and just as unlikely to be because they

c. Want to stand looking voyueristically blood coming out of someone's head

Don't feel too uneasy. There was probably only one person sneaking a keitai shot.
