Or maybe the Guy DeBord of the R&B world would better fit the model.

God Stanley, you're so, like, 6 hours ago. My kids already showed me that!

UK voters - stay up tomorrow night, or get up early on Friday? Is it going to take forever for the results to come in? Apparently our local council is predicting 5am for our two seats. I'm undecided. Children are planning to camp out in front of the telly and I don't suppose I can persuade them otherwise so will probably end up sleeping very little either way.

The U.K. elections prompted me to recall for the first time in ages that I used to be represented by Glenda Jackson in Parliament. How cool is that? And before that, Joschka Fischer!

I never took cognizance of who represented my circonscription électorale in France, but I always figured from the demographics that it was some UDF or RPR type. So I just looked it up, and it turns out that I lived in a swing district and was represented by a socialist MP, thus preserving my track record of never having been represented by anyone from a right-wing party until Scott fucking Brown.

To clarify 21, I was represented by Joschka Fischer in the Bundestag, not the British parliament, obviously.

12. Saturday on page 1 of the WaPo, a review by the dance critic. (Really. She won a Pulitzer and everything.)

I do wonder how her mentioning homo-eroticism went down with the guys.

"The choreography steals a bit -- and vastly improves upon -- the video that features Lady Gaga and Beyoncé conspiring in a luridly sex-crazed prison."

Huh.

Could they possibly have been unaware? Have you watched it?

I watched it. Yeah they were aware.

But when someone outside the gang comes out and says it, and in the HQ's hometown paper, they might feel differently about it being said.

(But mainly I was working the "went down with the guys".)

hey china is doing the 'make megan dictator' approach someone suggested in the comments to some thread earlier this week

http://www.tnr.com/blog/the-vine/china-takes-drastic-measures

So now the central government seems to be in full-on panic mode and is trying a brand new tack--punishing local officials who fail to meet their targets. Authorities are also now supposed to shut off water and electricity to projects that violate the country's environmental rules.

re: 13

I'd love to stay up, but that would be silly as I have to get up early to commute to work on Friday. So, probably watch until 1'ish, and then catch the remaining results tomorrow. I have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed.

Going to bed at the usual time; getting up at the usual time. There is no possible good outcome, so why exert myself?

Good night last night, ttaM?

Yes, very good, although took a bit longer than expected to get back. Left the pub at midnight, got home at 3am.

Night buses. Missed last tube, and then 1 night bus turned up and didn't stop [po-mo will confirm he just whizzed past the bus stop], and then the second took bloody ages to get from King's Cross to Ealing.

The tapes also reveal the locker-room environment at the precinct. On a recording made in September, the subject being discussed at roll call is stationhouse graffiti (done by the cops themselves) and something called "cocking the memo book," a practical joke in which officers draw penises in each other's daily notebooks.

C has become obsessed (okay, that may be an exaggeration) with Moleskine notebooks - apparently they are the only people who make one exactly the right size, and with a side binding, to fit his little bag which is all he is prepared to take around with him to meetings. I can't help feeling that a fiver for one notebook is a bit mad. Although I do like the space for writing a reward in at the front - one of his says "A pint of SA".
