My uncle Terre shared a story to his facebook wall which I felt required more than a simple thumbs up-thumbs down or twenty-five word response to. This screed is that response. The story concerns a group who are posting bills in an East-London Borough who are attempting to enforce Sharia Law in their neighborhood.

The running gag from the trip was a quote from a cartoon that was in a text book (formal logic?) from college. It showed a professor with a student in front of a chalkboard. On the board, there is a long and complex equation on the left and right sides of the board and written in the middle is the phrase “and then a miracle happens.”

It is bad enough when the are at least PRETENDING that they are cleaning the room whilst I am away at work. What am I supposed to think when I return to my room, and the towels have been haphazardly tossed on the rack and the cleaning products are left behind in the bathroom?

It is not as if we are (with no slur intended to any actual town of this name, I reference it only a the epitome of the small town in America - something to be proud of) in Podunk! For gods' sake! We are within shouting distance of the largest metropolis in America. We are in the home of a dozen high tech companies. Why is transportation so damn backward here!?

Have you ever noticed how - when something starts to develop into a pattern - you come to expect things to happen? You know, like when you open the door to the refirgerator and the light comes on, you just expect it to do so the next time and that one time that it doesn't, you just don't notice for a while!?

“Go for the peppahs!” She said to me as I was standing there, waiting for the omelette chef to ask me what I wanted; her thick north-eastern accent almost completely obscuring her message. “Peppahs will keep ya on ya toes all day!”

I had hoped to share a photo or two with you – but the fact is, technology fails. My camera started reading “write to card cannot be completed” while filming a short video of my last ride on the Wonder Wheel. I have been trying to find a good recovery programme since I got back from Coney Island and discovered the card was somehow corrupted!
Okay, so there seems to be a pattern developing here and I am not entirely sure whether it is just me or if this is New Jersey... Either way, it certainly seems to be (with apologies to The Grateful Dead) what a long, strange, trip it’s been!

Roll-Out The Barrel!? Yes, that is definitely the tune! It took me a bit of a moment for me to identify it because it is just a bit out of tune. But it is definitely The Beer Barrel Polka and it is definitely being whistled by that cleaner on the third floor.
