life begins - me

(no subject)

Will it stop you traveling by tube?

No. Maybe tomorrow, I'm not going to take the tube tomorrow, but I will next week... I'm not going to let this ruin my life, in fact it'll make me enjoy life more.

The BBC Breakfast news are looking at the aftermath of the attacks on London yesterday. That snippet above was an interview with a man named Steve who walked away from one of the carriages in which an explosion had happened. People next to him died, but he is showing the kind of spirit and strength that makes me proud to be British.

We have a reputation for the whole 'stiff upper lip' thing which frustrates me beyond belief, but yesterday and today that has come into its own - yes we will mourn the dead, we will aid the injured, we will comfort the bereaved, we will not let the bastards grind us down.
life begins - me

This is, apparently, my 15 minutes

Everyone gets their fifteen minutes of fame, right? This apparently is mine. So many people in the library have come up to me today and said "Were you at the concert in Edinburgh on Wednesday? I saw you on TV."

I even answered the phone earlier to a guy from IT looking for my boss. I explained she wasn't at her desk and he said "While I've got you on the phone... were you at the concert on Wednesday?"

I'm a strange state of mind right now, I guess most people not directly affected by the London bombing are. I don't want to be disrespectful, or to ignore what happened, but I don't want to let the bastards win by diverting me from my normal life, so I'm going to carry on as normal.

I tried to write this lunchtime, tried to work on one of my WIPs but ended up plotting out a whole new story instead. That is going to be a monster when it gets written, so much for me cutting down on the number of projects I'm working on...

There really is no point to this post, I'm not sure why I'm making it, but hey - it's all typed up now, I may as well post it.
