We’ve all heard the phrase ‘That ship has sailed’ well for this lady it undoubtedly has. She is pining for those halcyon days when her life was so much easier and straightforward. When her life wasn’t the mad dash that she lives through today, when she didn’t have to juggle everything in her life at the exact same time. Nowadays there isn’t even time to take a break.

The trouble is just last week she lost her Nokia 8110 which she treasured with all her heart. It’s sleek lines, it’s futuristic ‘slider’ form factor. After so many careful years she ended up leaving on the night bus whilst drunk, which she firmly blames on that chatty and well groomed guy she was trying to impress on the way home. Now though she has nothing. The man has gone home and now she is stuck in one of the lower levels of hell with her sister’s old iphone 4 with cracks on the screen.

People keep calling, texting, sexting, emailing, snapchatting, twittering, facebooking and instagramming. The fitness tracker keeps telling her to do more, the music app keeps telling her to download more stuff. It’s relentless and is all getting a bit too much. She’d love that phone back. Maybe eBay can help…

Dropping the bomb

How about this for a blast from the past? This is some original old school id-iom graffiti from probably about 1988 or thereabouts and is still going strong. That’s mainly because it’s on the back of a cupboard in the attic at our family home so there’s been little opportunity for anyone else to tag over it. I’m glad our vandalistic tendencies we’re in show even back then though. I’m not sure if it’s subconscious or what but our sometime motto is ‘dropping the bomb with absolute aplomb’ and this early throwup eerily connects with that. Spooky! But then it is almost Hop-tu-naa (or Halloween as other people call it)…

Cheers
