You know how I always say that I’ve been up to nothing? Well, this week I’ve been up to so much shit! Still, I somehow miraculously contrived to make it look like I’ve been nowhere and done nothing. See for yourself.

Feb 26: Calm waters run deep? I think this sign is here in case someone drowns in a puddle of their own saliva and wishes to press charges. Because people are crazy.

Feb 27: I’m all for balls, I love balls, but not served like this. This is just perverse.

Feb 28: The hotel challenge starts. The goal is to find your room. For advanced players: find your room while drunk.

March 1: The best memory from my business trip are the smoking lounges at airports. Heavenly.

March 2: On departing from my hotel, I helped myself to some soap. Because I’m fucking poor and I need it more than the hotel.

March 3: The inevitable post-travel angina/flu is here. I’m wearing all I have. Indoors.

March 4: Still ill and can’t even…

    1. Haha, they can try that, my employer covers the accommodation and travel costs, since it was a business thing. Photo two is a weird balsy decoration which I hated.

    1. That’s actually a quiz question. I have no idea! It’s an inflated balloon with a framed painting behind it but why the balloon is decorated with smaller balloons and what the fuck it’s supposed to do or mean I have no clue.

  3. What they all asked!! Sorry you got sick. And, BTW, I always help myself to the hotel soaps. I paid for it after all, so why not! Hope you get better real soon xxx

    1. Ha! So other people grab hotel soaps too! Good to know. I was thinking if I was the only thieving person. So to say, thieving. You’re right though. You paid for it…

      The strange picture is a decoration of some kind, it was so weird, some floating balloons, and I wonder what it was supposed to represent.

      1. Modern art is an enigma at times. I remember when one of my nephews was very little, We all went along to view an art exhibition. On the lawn outside the gallery there was a drunk who had passed out. He asked ‘Mummy, is that a decoration too?”

        1. Haha, that was a perfectly legitimate question! People seriously do these “installations”, like putting a shopping bag in a gallery and calling it “art”. Phew.

    1. I seem to get sick anytime I leave the house… But I’m not dying (though I thought so), so this too shall pass 😉

  6. You sound like you’re not telling the whole story.

    That was dirty. These words don’t work. What I mean is, you gave away a lot of info with the passport, but it was suspiciously luxurious. So maybe that hints that the trip was unpleasant interrupted by your photos? I don’t know. But thanks for letting me play detective for two posts.

    1. Oh of course I’m not telling the whole story! No one does. The story is never whole. I think.

      I assure you that the trip was unpleasant because I don’t enjoy anything. Now I’m wondering what else to add to clarify the mystery but I’m not sure what the mystery is. Hmm.

  7. At first the hallway looked like a fun child’s game. Now it looks harrowing. (Lots of things look harrowing these days.)

    1. The hallway might be funny to start with but when you get lost there for the tenth time, it stops being funny.
