Dislike: Mean grumpy people looking at me like I have poo on my face & delays on public transport

Dream Country to visit: Where they have loads of forrests and speak english and where its not too hot and not too cold, probably Ireland or New Zealand

What was the last thing to make you LOL? A shop called “booty wine”. I wondered if the shop keepers realised how silly it sounds!

What was the last dream you remember? Having an appointment at the North Pole. Going there by tube, forgetting the stop and just randomly leaving the train. I was then in the middle of nowhere surronded by ice and candles and was very f***ing frustrated because there were no displays about the next train!
