So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Back from nowhere

Believe it or not, I had actually carefully prepared a post on Friday only to see it disappear from before my eyes as the computer crashed. That was it, I wasn't going to rewrite it all, however I decided I would after all. Been on holiday the week before last, went nowhere, not even the internet. Thoroughly relaxing week, went by really quickly though.

Colleague at work just got back last week from Cancun. Horrendous experience, 3 days of sun and sea followed by a hurricane and a frightening aftermath of guns, looting and fear, with the British Consulate offering to get them to Dallas, where they'd have to find there own way home. Fortunately American Airlines, who they flew with got them all the way home safely. The boss's boss happened to say that he hadn't see her around for a while and she explained she'd been on holiday in hurricane hell. "Oh" he said, "did you have a nice time?" Managers huh.

I was going to rubbish citizenship tests, but its a bit late for that. Did think that the anecdote in Lucy Mangan's Guardian piece was brilliant though.

There, that wasn't so hard. Bit more regular from now on then.
