Summary of my day 5.5.5

1) Voting Day!

NP - Blue Man Group - Time To Start

Today is (was) election day here in the UK. I was a bit worried about queues and stuff (and pikeys at polling stations. Anyway, I arrived at the bus stop a little early, so I said 'hey let me see where this poll station should be right around the corner...' And it was indeed. Literally 2 minutes away.


It was in Church. And...I had to walk through a graveyard. It was quiet, too quiet. There was mist in the air, and the whisper of the trees as the wind shook their branches. 'Go away', they seemed to say. 'Leave this holy place'...The voices were accompanied by a wailing lament, the curse of souls calling for me to leave them be, to remove my foul presence from their resting place! The wind picked up, and the sky turned black. Torrential rain started to pour, and lightning struck the ground all around me. I bit my lip, and moved onwards.

Ok, none of that happened obviously, but it was a bit strange. Because it was so empty. I was probably like the first person to vote. It was really interesting, because they didnt ask for identification of nothing, just my name and address. Got the voting paper, crossed 'Liberal Democrats', smiled, and walked off.

I had just completed my journey from boyhood to manhood, and in time for breakfast.

2) Mr. Young VS Timothy Cavendish

NP - South - Colours In Waves

Im not quite sure what this post is meant to be about. I made a note of it, but I've forgotten. I do remember something about Mr. Young reminding me of Timothy Cavendish, from the book Cloud Atlas. I think because they are both grumpy old men who are slightly racist and more than slightly ignorant of the world around them, and yet both cute because of their snobbish charm and colourful use of language. Oh well.

    lol, many of my friends (malaysian) didnt get voting cards - but when they went to the station they were registered anyway. I guess its quite unclear, I only found out i could vote after a lot of inquiring.
