We had a server room alarm go off in one of our customer sites today so I had to go in to the office. Stuck the video on the phone to capture the weirdness. This was at 9am when the roads are usually in total gridlock, bloody weird feeling but a really easy commute!

"The Day of the Triffids" is my favourite Apocalyptic/Post-Apocalyptic story.

BBC made a good job of it with a series in the early '80s.

I still don't fully trust rhubarb.

I always laughed at the big rubber plant 'tongue' that just slapped people in the face & of course the mad over-acting reaction. Although as a kid it did scare the jeebers out of me.

I had to go to the post office yesterday to send a laptop to someone, and town was just eerie.

Nobody forced you to live there.

Can't say there's much difference in the Holy House.

We're rural anyway, so not used to seeing a lot of strange folks around these parts.

And Boris' "Orders" on Tuesday, pretty much described my Perfect Day.

Except that the trips to the shop and to exercise are usually Optional.

Other than that: I'm in my Element!

Yea, shitty if you're stuck in a big city. At least when we go for a walk we get this:

Cannot tell you how poorly timed my court case was.

When I first got the summons, it was some time in November! I was thrilled. I knew the entire NeoLiberal-Capitalist-Patriarchy will have completely collapsed by then, so I would never have to answer for my crimes.

But then I got a second note a week later, saying it was a mistake, and my case was actually early March.

*NOT* a great Time to not be allowed to drive legally on the road.

Still, shouldn't be too much of a problem in about six weeks, when the Collapse has really got going.

Then:

Speaking of the Omega Man I was just thinking of this scene a couple of days ago...
