And the lesson of the week is: don’t call a snap election unless you’re very sure you’re going to win it.
I’m sure we’ll all take that lesson and move forward.
But there have been other excitements too: a roast dinner, chocolate cake, a new nail polish, a Gorillaz gig at Brixton Academy – and when the finished, the exit poll results, Oh Lord! – and Wonder Woman on the big screen. And yes, there’s a super villain with a facial disfigurement, and of course I rolled my eyes, but I can’t be bothered to do more than that. I’m not offended, but it’s lazy and predictable. Basically, I loved the film and she’s wearing clothes. We all know disability equality comes later.
Also, if you want a Super Hero franchise which respects cripples, I give you the X Men. All of them. Thank you.
There were other developments, too, which suggest life may pick up over the next few weeks. I ventured to North London, which I don’t do very often, because it’s a long way from South London, and the public transport routes are ugly. But… well, I’ve had an adventurous week, that’s all.
Chicken fajitas and lime soda.
Also, making a bit of a knob of myself.
But still, somewhere in the middle of it all, an autumn leaf bath bomb, which a friend gave me for my birthday, even tho autumn leaf is a Christmas bath bomb and my birthday is in May. Well done, that friend.
My Lush stash is obscene again. Obscene. But I like it that way, and life is good.
