Daleks and Taxis 

Am I the only person in the world to think there is a passing similarity between London Black Cabs and Daleks?

Just think about it for a second... Big eye like thing front and centre ... yellow flashing lights at just the right angle... windscreen and windows like the panels in the mid section... bumpers like the bumpers on a Dalek at the bottom of the body.

So they don't have Dalek "bumps", a sucker or an evil blaster and I have yet to hear a cab driver yell "Exterminate!" at the top of his voice but the similarity is there. Mark my words.

This morning there were loads of armed police in Charing Cross station. I used to be scared of them but interestingly my attitude has changed since the bombings. Instead of "oh, my God, he's got a gun!" it's "go get the bastards!"

There was some bloody woman on the train last night who was writing War and Peace on her phone. No predictive text messaging and very clicky keys. I got very annoyed with her but could do nothing but listen to music instead.

What could I do? Smack her hands?

Just for a change, here's another moan at the passengers that get on my train.

Today I was trying to sleep. It didn't work. I shut my eyes but those seats are just too uncomfortable. Anyway, at Grove Park, two gossiping women got on and sat opposite. Not only did they yack on and on in horrible voices (one did the overdone S thing and the other had a horrible scratchy voice liked she'd chain-smoked since she was three) but they BOTH did their make-up.

There should be special no make-up carriages.
