Just got back from [livejournal.com profile] burge's and watching her colleagues triumph most triumphantly on 'University Challenge' with [livejournal.com profile] anw, plus added comestibles. A fine evening, if rather more sheep noises than strictly necessary. Don't ask. It'd ruin the mystical mystique.

Anyway, a boo and a cheer to the road system on my drive home from Cambridge.

Boo to the bastards who have sneaked not one but TWO new bastard speed cameras in at the bottom of the M11 since I last drove back from the university.

But a cheer to the engineers at the Blackwall Tunnel. Long term roadworks there mean it's been closed every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night for ooh, at least the past decade and a half, and it'll remain that way for the next century at least. Fortunately it's Monday so it was open (and the drive from Wanstead to Lewisham took less than 20 minutes instead of about 50). I was at first bemused when Radio FiveLive didn't turn into audio snow when I drove into the tunnel. Then the dawn of amazement - as part of the refurbishment they've put a radio transmitter in. Woooo!

It also meant I didn't miss any of the extraordinary discussion on biodynamic farming. Loads of bollocks like energy being channelled through cow horns into the meat. And you can only plant things on days when the moon is in the right star sign. Where do I begin? It scares me that people believe this rot.

They are now discussing 'has the bottom fallen out of the thong'. Ha.

grrrrr.....

The sooner they ban lorries from overtaking lorries on the M11 (and other two-lane motorways) the better...
