On the M40

with 5 comments

Well, I presume it’s the M40. Not totally sure about that; my memory’s a bit cloudy on which motorways connect which towns in England. Anyway, I’m currently sat on an omnibus on my way to Oxford.

Frankly, it’s a pretty sweet deal. Fifteen quid return with free wifi and a powerpoint to use, too. Considering I’d spend about eight quid on two coffees and almond croissant at Le Pain Quotidien (the nicest time-limit-less free wifi place I’ve found in central London, mainly due to the cute East European waitress and those mmm-mmm-mmm almond croissants), then this is cheap cheap cheap.

Honestly, though, this blog post is utterly superfluous. I have nothing to say. Just that I’m on a bus speeding down the motorway with brief thoughts of bus crashes flitting though my mind. I feel quite modern. It’s like being on an episode of Tomorrow’s World.

  1. I do often feel that, with mobile phones, ipods, blogging and whatnot, we live in the future.

  2. You wouldn’t be so impressed if you spent 3.5 hours on that bloody bus with some eejit eating a coleslaw and onion sandwich in front of you as I did 2 weeks ago. Urk, I can still smell it.

    Incidentally since you mention the minipops, I came across ‘weenicons’ the other day. I assume that these are not done by you? If not they are a rather horrid rip off. Urk again!

  3. It’s like when I watched a man flip open his phone and say “This is Kirk.” I began wondering where Spock was.

  4. If I could blog from a bus, I would. Man. The amount of time I spent on buses between Oxford and London a few years back. Wish I’d had a laptop and wifi then.
