I'm sleeping in a bunk bed. It most certainly has been a life long dream of mine to sleep in one of these. There's even space beneath for a fort. I am an architectural fort building expert. I have nothing to verify the assertion but I'll get there. My experience is years upon years of trying to build pretty neighbourhoods, farms and temples in Age of Empires without attacking the unreasonably hostile neighbours that I'd much prefer to ally with (if only because if you start playing the war game on A.O.E your well trained battalions end up dropping like flies because the in game A.I is *very* competitive) apparently the A.I gets quite bored if it can't create arguments and that's how I regard the simulation that is Planet Earth. (It isn't a simulation, that word really does undermine the notion of sentience but when people start acting thoughtlessly I suppose it's quite easy to regard them as robotic programs, especially when the only conversational exchange has been "Good Afternoon" or "hello" and if it were a simulation we'd be much more evolved right now.) I base that assertion on how fast the A.I in every game ever levels up. If this were a simulation we would be more energy efficient, MUCH more creative, more intelligent and otherwise just... better. We'd be more appreciative of intelligence and we'd probably be less capitalistic and much more altruistic and much more inclined to base the merit of mortality upon achievements that were rooted in academia, the pursuit of knowledge, the idea that 'love' doesn't really require the use of one's genitals at all etc. That just because we can 'reproduce' doesn't mean we have to en masse when there are lots of children who don't have parents because we think that we have genes that are worth perpetuating, even though we ALL know that children's worst fucking nightmares are looking like their parents. Even if their parents are hot.
Wonderful graffiti, depicting a hidden Kali with a necklace of victims whose names she does not know. She has subdued a bae and he doesn't mind. And he keeps his eyes closed cos no one - LITERALLY FUCKING NO ONE - looks good from that angle. How polite. Look at him with his eyes closed. Also there is a casual star of David amongst her bae's feet cos I imagine that he redirects his sexual energy to higher places and really no one can complain about that. How feminine.

I invested in some local art from The Vintage Work Shop and I'm so glad I did, I learned a little bit about the art community in Brighton by having a chance to see what the locals like - and it's encouraged me to want to contribute art works. I also learned from the lady running Pardon My French, that people in Brighton quite like Seaside related art - and that it's possible to go swimming in the sea locally. I really like the locals in Brighton (some of them have terrible manners and make me uncomfortable but I am too lazy to expend any energy into trying to work out how someone could desire to be so passive aggressive towards someone who is spending money in their shoppe) (it wasn't her shoppe but I'll pretend it was) Investing in the micro-economies of small towns by trying to buy small things is really important for the cultivation and preservation of those town's identities. It's also a lot of fun to learn about the locals. I feel like the protagonist in Harvest Moon except it would be weird to start documenting their birthdays so that I could bring them all gifts. Probably. Also they're both much wealthier and a lot less tacky than I am.
