When it comes to the finding of the love of your life, occasionally you're surprisingly faced with more than one option. Somehow I have reached that point. And while to me this feels a bit selfish and crude reducing people to commodities, I tend to analyse each 'option' and what it would do for me. Each has their own pros and cons, are at different stages in their lives and would provide differing levels of mutual satisfaction. Of course there's no guarantee that either would work out (or even accept me). Just some mindless thoughts, something I've avoided doing on this blog but probably may do more of over time, especially what with the Blogger service not working for me recently.


Wilmington's liveable

So I took the past week to visit the United States, precisely, northern Delaware. It's the "First State", of course. And I barely won a side-bet that it did indeed have an Atlantic coast. My status as a geography nut was at stake there. Serious stuff, heh.

Being suburbia/small town for the most part, it appealed to me the way that I couldn't imagine a big city like Philly, New York or London being. It's close enough to a large city and close enough to rural areas and is quiet enough I think for where I could see myself residing if I was to leave for someplace totally new.

Spent way too much money over the week, including a new suit, tons of Playstation video games and a new flat-screen TV, but I'm not going to let myself worry about it too much, although the money could have been used for my perennial house-watch funds. Sigh.

Two things recently disturbed me. First, I was in a theatre watching the cute and funny Wallace and Gromit movie in theatres and lo! and behold, grammatical errors arose when the Wallace character picked up the local newspaper and the dreaded misuse of the word "it's" was in full glory. We are doomed if even the animators of children's flicks are screwing things up for the youth.

And Terrell Owens. Ugh. I won't give his situation any more credit than it deserves. But for Jesse Jackson to comment on it, good lord. Please, Reverend, find a more worthy cause to support. After all, the guy's got more money than 99.9% of your country's population.

Today, I've read about the call from Alabama's governor to boycott Aruba in support of Natalee Holloway's mother. Oh please. They're giving southerners a bad name with this silliness. While I do not condone causing any harm to anybody, what about all the situations in your own state and country where crimes go unsolved and killers get free on technicalities? This blog covers many of my feelings on this matter. Hm, and no mention of warning teenagers of travelling to unknown regions, drinking underage, conversing with strangers without any sort of guardian figure around at all? Twits.


Do government cars get special perks?

Simple question. Are cars such as GP 8 now allowed to carry flashing blue lights on the front? I was very confused as to whether to pull over for it when I saw it streaking behind me tonight. Surely those vehicles do not double as police cars, do they?


Autumn is here

November rolled in, and the temperatures took a quick dive. Time to break out the sweaters and put away the fans.

Daylight Savings Time is over for another year, and now we're back in sync with the rest of the world that remains on one time for the entire year. I still think Barbados could find it useful, but I do admit it's for selfish reasons. Because there's no way I can get up and run around at like 5 a.m. To me, daylight at 7 p.m. is far more useful.

I'm Booking the female rider of BD 247 because she not only saw a red light and sped up to get through it, but surely the one-handed riding and dangling her cigarette with her free hand surely must constitute some offense along the due care laws, right? Anybody?

Another day, another Halloween. It's interesting to compare how this time of year is dealt with in Bermuda and Barbados. Here, we're fully Americanised. Trick-or-treating, of course, with the counter of egging and other public disturbances, although I haven't yet heard of anything major just yet. Barbados, as far as I know, goes the other way. The day after, All Saints' Day, which is of course supposed to be the anti-Halloween, gets more publicity of sorts. Halloween is a virtual non-event there, I believe. I need to analyse it deeper, I think, but the contrast is interesting.
