an uncharacteristic moment

Z and I talking about Apocalypse in the car, on our way home after watching 2012.

Z: If I think about the possibility of the world ending, it just... makes me more sad than I can tell you if I only start to think about the horrifying choices and lack of choices our children would face. How unfair it would be that they never got to flourish and live.

N: That's very moving. I was convinced that you were about to say how torn up you'd be inside about earthquakes and tsunamis ruining the plexiglass roof you spent all that time building in the garden.

Plugging along in Computerville, I hope I'm doing this right.

Here at Rancho, we don't worry so much about 2012, getting to tomorrow is pretty important though.

There seems to be an awful lot of this 2012 and the aftermath going on in the media lately. I'm always trying to have a look under the sheets. Seems like something going on that I can't quite put my finger on.

And plexiglas was a fine choice for the garden, apocalypse or not.

Huh?
For some reason I don't imagine you and Z seeing movies like 2012. But I am NOT one to talk, as I have seen 2 and a 1/2 of the CRANK series. ;-)

I have lost your email and have been thinking of you. I am hoping to make it into London for a day of shopping (sans husband & children) sometime before Christmas. Maybe we could finally get together for that cup of coffee?

Re: Huh?
Disaster movies are my guilty pleasure and Z is also fond of them but he mainly humours me because I'm sure that he can live without watching the Day After Tomorrow fifty times, but I find it very soothing.

My email is nina.san@gmail.com. I'm pretty sure I've still got your email and will send you something, but I've been ridiculously tired and absentminded, so if you don't hear from me in a timely manner it means I'm just having a Brain Fail.

I'm away from London between 6th-13th of December, but around apart from that! (though I work Tues-Thurs). I would love to see you, so that coffee would be a real pleasure.
