09:29 am - Happy Gauda Prime Day, you fools like me
'TIS the year's midnight, by men call’d Gauda Prime,
Or Blake, who scarce one episode himself unmasks.
Thy Oracle is spent, from wandering
Within the pattern of infinity
And now is heard no more.
Somatic balm th' inebriate thief hath drunk,
And to the tracking gallery all life is shrunk.
Who loved and slay’d thee died, yet still can laugh.
‘I set this up … for you’, which is thy epitaph.

Apologies John Donne

There's nothing like a nice bit of misery to keep you on your toes.

Because Gan would try to look on the bright side?

I am now imagining 'It's a Wonderful Life' B7 style... and at the end, showing how everything would be if Gan was dead, Clarence pipes up "oh yes... you are."

The sound of gunshots and the knowledge that the dead don't rise, what a show!

And to the tracking gallery all life is shrunk.

*hearts you*

There's an announcement at King's Cross station that starts: "Security personnel..." but we never hear the end because we both immediately chime in "to main tracking gallery!"
