I get the out of practice part...but the other?
I honestly can’t tell if you’re happy about thisThis week...
Invited to an art exhibit party on Thursday night by a certain female artist. Don't not come to it I am told.
Finally got the age appropriate date for the wedding on Friday.
Got invited by a bartender at one of my home bars to go to a rooftop pool bar on Saturday night after her shift (although how I'm supposed to get in as a lone man without a bunch of money on Saturday night)

Unherd is pretty good, as is Spiked.
Its a mixed bag, like most. Some articles are good some, not so...Unherd is pretty good, as is Spiked.
I'm with Peter Hitchens, the Blair years were a very damaging revolution indeed. In my business sector we went from engineering construction and projects to the Facilities Management business model which turned out to be a Ponzi Scheme - planned and abetted with New Labour - at the tax payers expense i.e. build hospitals, operate for 10 years and then sell back to the NHS, before the same thing happened again. You couldn't fail to make money, except they all got greedy and overstated income, declared 10 year contract profits in the first year and took endless loans to fund shareholder and director bonuses and expectations. Incestuous relationships between New Labour, the boards of these companies and the Big Four.
They were also the years, when you went out you heard endless talk about how much money people had made on their home through house price increases. That was very tedious.
Blair winged it initially on the Cool Britannia wave, and I was very much of the position that had he not backed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq his reputation would not have been soiled. I've changed that position, I think he was toxic on domestic policy too. On all fronts.
Peter Hitchens made the mistake of thinking he had deduced the current Russian psyche and Putin's mind on his experiences in Moscow during the Cold War. Well, fashion changes. His experience is long out of date.Don't/didn't care for the Hitchens brothers. P.Hitch hasn't covered himself in glory over Ukraine.
How many days since you had symptoms?
