...and one final cultural posting from London...

Last Sunday, before flying back to BKK, had lunch at Ask in Kew. Perfectly pleasant as pizza franchises go (Genovese - mushrooms, aubergine, olives, pesto - couple glasses Montepulciano) but something struck me. Every few minutes, a couple or several couples, with varying numbers of kids (but none childless, apparently) would come into the restaurant. All, I guess, between late 20s and mid 30s. All professional/middle-class, but that covers everything from aspirational first-in-the-family-to-go-to-university to trust-funders. But most significantly, THEY ALL LOOKED THE SAME. It was as if John Wyndham had scripted an episode of Coupling.

Beware... we are being invaded by BODENZOMBIES.

Think I'll copyright that one, so fucking watch out, OK?
