Today's thoughts/happenings:

- keyboard still broke - must find out procedure for owning up to these things and getting a new one
- daft man in passenger seat of huge 4x4 stopped next to me at the Hyde Park Corner lights, offering to take photos of my legs "for a survey of ladies legs in the Sun"
- tempted to get business cards made up, with glossy photos, so next time people are taking the piss I can just hand them one
- one lane of Liz Way coned off southbound so traffic very slow, but easy to overtake on a bike
- slept badly so shattered
- LJ comments I made last night missing in places, grump, this borkenness is getting annoying

Today's survey

Both, white for preference, wholemeal for diet purposes.

What is your favorite place to visit?
Dunno. Don't have one at the moment.

Are you photogenic?
Maybe. I doubt it myself, but that could be just self wossname.

Do you dream in color or black and white?
More in abstract.

Are you wearing fingernail polish?
Yes, sparkly blue.

Do you have any dimples?
A bit.

Do you remember being born?

Why do you take surveys?
Boredom, and sometimes some of the answers are interesting to me, if not to anyone else.

I have no objection.

Do you think women should be expected to shave their body hair?

Do you like to wear the same shoes everyday or do you like a variety?
Mostly wear the sandals during the day in the summer, but a bit of variety good.

Do you write poetry?
I did when I was a child, and was quite good at childish stuff since I could rhyme and get scansion more or less OK. I look for more than that in poetry these days, and I don't think I have the skills for it, so I don't try. Maybe I should, but it just feels pretentious in me.

Emotional in some ways. Though I've never had seriously physical.

Up to them, it usually works better to keep the remaining hair pretty short at least, IMO, but people can please themselves.
