When we were in London last year we booked an AirBnB thing on a boat, it was really lovely... except there was a huge problem with the electrics, the power kept running out and we had to sit in the dark. They obviously knew they had the problem so they supplied loads of tea-lights but it was dangerous as fuck to have hundreds of tea-lights in a tiny cabin filled with soft furnishings. We did pretty well but on the last night inevitably we set fire to one of the pillows. We survived but we managed to get a (not big enough) discount by saying that they had been cavalier with our lives... which they had. Bet it's still like that though.
i have been to a few bars last couple of weeks and something which is now starting to disturb me is that i have been offered coke out of the blue by 4 different people on 4 different occasions. all of them people i had never met before. and in neither situation did i bring up the subject. isn't it weird that people come up to me and ask if i want it? i'm starting to think do i look like someone who needs cocaine? and if so, what does that mean? or is this now so omnipresent and accepted that it's like asking someone if he wants to have a fag?
it's freaking me out a bit.
anyway, besides all of that i have decided to go straight this september. no alcohol, no tabac, no coffee, no drugs.
