Heading for the Big City

Going to London tomorrow. Capital city. Seat of government. Place of residence of the monarch. And I'm pretty sure that there is a Starbucks there somewhere too. I now know that the streets are not actually paved with gold, so I won't be taking the shovel this time. Or the smelter. But I will be taking the train. At 6:18.

This is not a nice time to be rising. Or indeed doing anything else. As far as I'm concerned (and I am quite concerned) the universe doesn't actually have a need to exist at that hour of the day, since I'm not usually around at the time. But then again, I hope it does. Actually, thinking about it, the world doesn't actually have to be there when my eyes are closed. BLINK. Hmm. Anyone else spot that?
