Observations on life

Two young people were begging on the train this morning, asking everyone for change. It was quite sad and faintly annoying. No-one seemed to give them anything.

Mad old women over the road was watering her nasty, common-as-much flowers yesterday morning. It had rained the night before.

Local mad women came past yesterday morning as I was packing the car to go the tip. She was dragging along two dead plants (well, they looked dead to me). I do try and avoid her as she talks AT you, not TO you.

Was channel surfing last night, came across a program on a teen weight reduction camp in the US. First thing to strike me as odd was the fact that the counsellors searched the childrens belonging while they were at a concert - very much an invasion of privacy I would have thought. Secondly, the weight reduction scheme all just seemed to be playing sport all day. Where was the emotional counselling?The nutrition advice? At least they didn't weight these poor kids out in the open for all to see!
