F 1 D 0 -- 02 06 14 at 1730 London, England. It's big. It is the centre of the earth. Perhaps the universe. It knows it too. Everyone who has money in their pocket should find time to see London at least ONCE. If you like urban places, and can make a living anywhere, live here for a year or two. It will take that long to figure out how to get around. I'm hoping to dance at Cecil Sharp House tonight. The dance is called Friday Feet, and I don't know if it is an event I even want to attend. We'll see. If you need internet, go to Edgware, and visit the place on Station Street. The computers here are not restricted. They have a timer program, but are otherwise untethered, and let me do F1D0 posting, and use a Secure Shell program. Okay, the keyboards could use some help, but still, they're alright. The computers are Dell systems, which look a lot like the Compaq all-in-one computers. They are fast, and that's ok with me. They're on a good network, and that's ok too. 50p gets you an hour here. But there is some kind of rule for HOW. So in practice it actually gets you HALF an hour. FINE. I've only got 7 minutes to entertain you. I'll try. Cecil sharp house is supposed to be near the zoo, and that will help me find it. Also, it is marked on my map of london, so with any luck, I'll get there easily. There are lots of chain stores in London, so I'm seeing the same places over and over when I surface from the tube. But I'm also seeing individual places, so the texture of the universe is not all McDonalds, Burger King, and Gap. There is more to living. Have you heard of Tennesee Fried Chicken? Me neither. But it is here. What else can I tell you? I really have to listen when talking to people, as the accents here vary with region of birth. If you like Indian food, eat here. If you like coffee, they have Starbucks near most Tube stations. If you hate crowds, don't do London. If you hate crime, don't read london signage, as someone somewhere was hurt in the last day or two, and they want witnesses. If you dislike charity mongers, just keep walking. they're paying young people to do the "Hello, do you have a minute?" routine. Everywhere here. That's not all I know.
