    My favourite thing is people saying they're safe in the Westminster attack, like calm down Doris your office is 4 miles away in Shoreditch you're more likely to be stabbed going to Pret at lunch than you are by a terrorist.
    My cousin works at Canary Wharf and used that facebook notification thing to say he was safe. Calm the fuck down Harry, I know it's a tower but you're jumping the gun here.

    I've had a few people I knew at Uni who have coughed up old pictures of themselves on dates or trips to London and they've got a shot of Big Ben or the Houses of Parliament with them in it and a caption like "It feels like yesterday that I was right there, can't believe it". Get the fuck over yourself

    I live near Brighton and I can't even remember what a train looks like.

    If I'm heading south: usually on time.
    If I'm heading north: never on time.

    I also have most of the pelican crossing patterns in town down pat.

    A black cat walked up to my leg while I was on my way to Tesco and meowed at me several times.

    Not sure if it's a good or bad omen, but I'm sad I didn't manage to pet the cat before it left :(

    black cats are considered good luck here, and if one goes into your house the old gods will bless you with prosperity

    I once encountered a black and white cat that kept following me meowing and rubbing against my legs. So cute.

    I've had brief staring contests with the same black cat on my previous nightly Tesco trips

    I miss my own cats back home, though. Been almost two months since I last saw them.

    So last night I had a nightmare where there was a spiderweb in the corner of my room. I know I don't keep often, probably the impetus for this nightmare, but anyway. A big ol' cobweb, which I decide to do something about. I jab at it with a long brush (or broom?) and a big spider comes a calling to see what the fuss is about. A big booty spider with spindly long legs. Now, I'm not arachnaphobic but that's a nasty surprise. Not to mention that I saw black widow-esque markings on it. Anyway, it somehow realised where the disturbance was coming from, and the spider started creeping down and towards me, growing increasingly larger as my imagination played up the danger. I rather calmly left the room and tried to close the door but did so by trying to slam it from outside and the spider caught it. That was definitely a problem so I went downstairs and told my parents "I don't mean to alarm you, but there's a very dangerous spider in the house," and that's when I woke up.

    Anyway, tonight I was getting ready for bed and I pick up my pyjama top and lo and behold there was a really big spider on it.

    Luckily this one was only slightly larger than my thumb and no venomous. I swiftly shook out my top in the backgarden. I hate being a spider magnet sometimes.

    Spiders are safe fam, I don't put them outside anymore.

       slugs are my thing, I had to get my missus to remove a slug that had crawled across the door when it was open. I never used to be like this and I don't mind snails but slugs make my skin crawl

    I know local spiders are harmless, but I don't like them in my house because I don't like not knowing where everthing is. And that big one after that bad dream was an unwelcome surprise.

    Fucking hate them. I have a recurring nightmare where every surface in my house is coated in hundreds of different types of bugs and spiders, all different sizes and colours. Every I wake up from it I feel so disgusted and unsettled

    Could be worse though, my dream before the spider one was I was attending some sort of sexual skills class and the lesson of the day was on analingus and I was for some reason determined to be the best at eating arse there was.

    Woke up on a very wet pillow with my mouth all slobbery.

    It's no eggsageration to say that I've had a Creme Egg a day since as soon as they came out at the start of March (roughly). I fucking love Creme Eggs

    They're awful after the Americans bought them. It's like they successfully removed the sweet taste they used to have but kept the sickness you got afterwards.

    Like how do you even do that.
