London, your surprise summer day...

...caught all by surprise - and so then your denizens rejoiced in light clothing and indulged in flavored iced cream - got drunk and swelled with national pride on St. Geroge's Day, and then rode the dark and lonely bus home.

The aforementioned iced confection combined swimmingly with these young lasses.

"Brothers, lets revel on our liquid buzz and float down to the city center to gather and yell - YES! Sing songs and chants– "If you don't like our country - fuck off home, If you don't like our country - fuck off home, If you don't like our country, If you don't like our country, If you don't like our country, FUCK OFF HOME !!!!" Again! E N G L A N D ! We will ride the night with our party, all who are in our path will know the colors of our flag and the just cause of remembrance and best, the fact that we are Engalnd! Paint yer face ya fuggin' slag!"

O-Mhy-Gawd, is that Miley Cyrus's boyfriend or dad?

The sun impaled itself on the skyline over the river Thames, failing in it's attempt to warm us anymore, sliding, yielding to the horizon, it's nemesis and giving way to a particular darkness, first the dusk, but then a vast and expansive black that streetlamps need all their effort to push back.

The day was no more or less than the night as far as humans cared, and even though the day was finally gone, strangely certain humans wore less clothing in the cool blackness than in the full weight of the suns fire. The carlights illuminated the slender white flesh of legs as they scissored across the lane, a small handful of cloth covering the socially unacceptable bits while simultaneously advertising them with the budget of Microsoft.

In front of me there are people and lights that cry out "the night is young old man!" and so bitterly how I know this! So I sit and read my paper wantonly abandoning any desire to look out and partake in the thoughts that looking would inevitably bring to my perverted head.

Homeward bound? Perhaps. Or off to the beckoning night!

Seen this photo before? Maybe in the new Hamburger Eyes, get it!

And a new book to get as well...

Haha,wannabe art photographer.
Is this a sign you have a novel in the works?

At first I thought there were way too many words for my little brain to process and then I decided to accept the challenge of actually reading for once in my life. Now I feel blessed to have taken the adventure through a black and white Great Britain, in day and night, with you, Ed,as my tour guide, exposing me to all the beauty of trains and ice cream. Such is my great reward!
It's been a long day and I think I need to eat.
If anyone needs meat-free protection (insert bad puns here), check out my friend Biggie:

Eggs,

#1 Thanks for all of your comments. I know many more people come here for a look without commenting, but I really enjoy hearing from people - anything will do!

#2 Thank you for reading the text. I don't always write, but I always promise to have a point and not waste your time when I do write. I was just having fun writing this morning - a good mood I think it was, it made me attempt to flex the language muscle a bit.

No plans for a novel, but it is quite possible someday.
