While Trump claimed he had been vindicated – and therefore his Russian headache and cloud had lifted (fake news and alternative facts, as usual) … While Theresa May had created a big, huge, enormous splitting headache – for herself, her party, plenty voters who had supported her … I accidentally hit upon a very bad idea.
The weather was fine, yet I decided to take a tram. It was late and I wanted to watch “The state of America”. We trundled to the next stop.
A few weeks ago, friends and I attended a literary evening. As usual, the evening not only included recital of poetry, but also appropriate chamber music. This evening was a German one and its theme Dada.
Despite plenty awards, it took a while for this film to be released in the UK. “Toni Erdmann” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in April 2016. Since the start of February 2017, it can finally be admired in the UK.
While the Dump is still screaming murder, causing mayhem, denying everything and especially a certain report, there is a new headache. Was the BBC to blame? Were the Russians to blame? This latest hack was of such staggering importance, it was reported by the BBC six o’clock news this week – followed by NBC and the rest of the media circus.
Unlike the Lump and other folks on this earth, I am weary and sceptical – about the benefits of social media. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and related media without which the world is unable to turn these days, are simply not on my priority or to-do-list.
The slogan of the shop kept me wondering. If it was part of a food branch, how many of these had mushroomed recently? How many casualties had their killer salads caused – since 1922?
Part of the economics department of the university in a friend’s town is branching out. A new location has been found. The new branch will have its own canteen and café.
This has not deterred some project developer from presuming students swim in money, are always hungry, love fast food. So right next to the uni department’s new branch, a row of fast food shops are being built. A MacDonald’s with café, will open soon. Shops of other international brands are under construction.
I thought one shop was going to be the exception to this row of fast food chains. I presumed at least one shop would offer healthy food to talented, young hopefuls.
Not so, I’m afraid. On my way home, I read its slogan, proudly sprawled across the shop front of this yet to open venue:
“Been making killer salads since 1922!”
Seems Sweeney Todd has entered town.
To cite the card, propped up against copies of all his plays: “So I haven’t written much lately?”… Neither has Shakespeare and contrary to the great man, I’ve been quite busy – lately.
