Reconquered the Roman Empire playing Rome TW: Barbarian Invasion on Friday night and then I went with my bro to watch Roman's latter day Empire, Chelsea, stuff Bolton 5-1. Second half performance of the year. Definitely a touch of the invincibles there. Went for a few beers in Chelsea after along with my other brother. Plenty of posh totty around but no bites on that day.
I've gone from being virtually unmanaged to being micromanaged in the space of a couple of weeks. The project I'm working on is a work-flow metrics app for senior management so is very high profile and hence I'm under quite a bit of pressure to deliver stuff. But then it's good that my job is being noticed and makes me more invulnerable to any cost cutting like what they did to me last year here.
David Cameron is only a few years older than me so we're reaching the stage where the rave generation starts getting into positions of responsibility. Recreational drug taking in the UK as a social norm really took off in the late 80s so even more than the 60s generation, a lot of people took a lot of drugs. So the continual media (hypocritical) questioning of Cameron about his past is going to happen more and more. And it's going to be harder for the 'all drugs are evil' line to maintained if apparently well adjusted people took lots of drugs but still managed to hold down jobs etc. Sooner or later we'll wake up and smell the coffee.
