nonesense you say? what nonesense

the image and the reality?

I awoke this morning to the usual delights of Radio 4's Today programme (actually this was the second time - there was a crash in my room, at 4am, when a cat had managed to knock all my tapes off the windowsill). This time it was John Prescott being unusually belligerent, in the face of 'allegations' about him. John Humphrys seemed to be fairly restrained, today, in his questioning - probably cos he couldn't really get a purchase, what with there being very little actually substantive. Just lots of talk, and 'questions' - whatever these questions are.

Having said that, I do find the idea of making new big casinos - flashily titled Super Casinos, as if they're here to save us - abominable. For a so-called progressive government to be actively supporting new ways for people to lose lots and lots of money beggars belief.

Is that the same cat who kept me awake for two hours rubbing his/her feline face against my cheek one time I stayed there?

Very nice of the cat, but I need my rest!

That's Bagheera, who's a bit of a lunkhead so doesn't always realise when it's appropriate to be so friendly!

Twiglet's the one who knocks my tapes over, from time to time - it's just that this one was such a loud CRASH!!! and got me confused about whether it was just a dream. Thank God my door's fixed, and I can now close it properly...
