I was on my annual two days of torture at a European theme park over the weekend and I must say, what a drab and unispiring vista it was: a vast sea of undulating black bubble coats that passed for humanity. We have really arrived at quite a boring junction of fashion sameness and across the sexes too. All the same, utility wear with crap cheap things that are neither sneakers/trainers or shoes on the feet.

The only thing I had going for me, was that it wasn't Disneyland Paris.

I've been sticking to a routine walk since adopting 12 hour work days. Every morning I am passing by a taller dyed blonde version of Keira Knightley enthusiastically listening to her music on her iPhone. She seems genuinely happy.

Why do women have these sasquatch sized winter boots? They make the boots NASA astronauts wear look svelte.

Was in Indian country last weekend. Went to put something in the freezer in the health centre and this is what I found:

I had to move seats couple days ago because this overweight guy next to me starting watching porn on his phone.
I survived this one brown kid who was coughing every five seconds. I swear his throat will be raw and chafe by the time he made it to wherever he needed to go.

The term "comfort zone". I keep seeing it used these days. Hopefully it dies away like a fad. It's similar to mental health.

People who buy food and travel with them. I see it all the time where someone buys let's say a Subway sandwich and then carries it with them on the train until they get out at the rail station which also features a Subway. Why would you buy food and carry it with you when you know you can get it at your destination?

Yesterday I was wearing some summer suit, a lighter shade of blue with chalkstripes and a brown guy comes by, grabs my elbow, and starts asking where I bought my suit, is it good, what brand, can we trade? (Are we supposed to strip in public?)

Today I got in the lift with Trevor who works in the office across from mine. I am positive he only picked me based on my attire. Also asking about today's suit.

If I get another person asking about my suit tomorrow I will dress in separates for Friday.

Hiking poles in the financial district in a province renowned for being so flat our one ski mountain is a small hill elsewhere. He was wearing dress trousers with one of those synthetic outdoor jackets.

Before passing him I thought he was struggling with polio.

My office lobby is under renovation. Typically there is one security person behind a desk but these days they hired another person to stare at this panel all day. Some of them read a book and glance up for blinking lights from time to time. Some play with their mobile. But the chap I see the most just stares at it.

If you're a bald headed eagle, one has to be careful as it's so easy to look like an some kind of deviant as that chap does.
He looks like a deviant? I think the Dutch bartender at my men's club is like that except he's a bit taller.

Been watching this demolition job that started last week, the windows went first and a rather odd and somewhat disturbing sight as it progresses day by day:
Why don't they use demolition explosives?

Despite the trees, it's quite an urban residential area and there's a train line running next to it. Not really an option to take it down by explosives.

Why do women with visible body fat wear clothing that exposes their mid section? For that matter, why do women with huge sagging breasts wear dresses without bras?

Applies to women too. I just saw one this morning as she leaned forward to speak into the polycom.
Now you know why the women want equality so much. Same rights for fat chicks to show their bum cracks, too. Must be so empowering!
Maybe that's the reason why so many fat chicks with coloured hair claim to be "feminists"!
Just FYI, I found both versions disgusting.

I don't think anyone should have rights to do that. Man or woman.

Dreadlocks bloke on the bus into Kingston(Surrey not Jamaica). He had a baby’s dummy in his mouth throughout the journey.

When he got up to get off his trousers were falling down. More so than the usual low slung style. He had to hitch them up.

Unlikely to be gainfully employed, so my taxes probably pay for his upkeep.

Lately the homeless people here have been hording strollers to transport their belongings. I have yet to see any bugaboos yet though.

I often see the security chap using the treadmill at 5 am. Officially the gym doesn't open till 6am but I like to get in at 530am so I can make it to the office before 8am. How he runs in uniform with his watch and glasses on I haven't a clue.

There is this bloke at work who keeps brushing his teeth every day after lunch. He likes to spit out his toothpaste crud into the sink and not rinse the bowl. Our sinks are touchless so I don't see a sanitary issue with waving your hand underneath to start the water. Today I caught him brushing his teeth with one hand taking a piss with the other in front of a urinal. (multitasking? can't hold your bladder?) Then he did the usual and spit in the sink and ran off without washing his hands.

Yes - his teeth must be squeaky clean but other hygiene who gives a toss.
