The Perfect U.F.O.

1. The definition of lalochezia is?:
a) Using foul language to relieve stress.
b) Addiction to citrus flavoured vodka.
c) Inability to think before speaking.
d) Compulsion to take photographs of dead avians.

Guesses please (no googling or suchlike)...

2. Thing that was shouted at me by workmen:
"Without those boots I bet you're about 4 foot 5 tall!" Made me laugh, and that's all I ask from my random encounters with labourers (not encounter encounters, obviously. Because I don't do that, good girl that I am. That didn't need explaining, did it? Oh well.)

3. I miss you guys.
That is all.

4. Photos.
Silly version: just to stymie you, here's some photos that aren't of the trip.

Serious version: I'm having a few problems with my home computer, and it's taking me an age to resize the ones from the visit, so here's a bunch of graffiti and stuff to hopefully keep you occupied whilst I get the other photos done. Look! Shiny things!

Edinburgh doesn't really have a large Polish population. Maybe they meant 'polish'.

I think this may be the 'leet speak' of graffiti.

Ummm... this was under the BDP a while back.

No takers for such a suave chat-up line?

Punctuation is for conformos! Not for the children of the revolution!

1. I think its a, possibly c

2. Of course that did need explanation...

3. Not the girls?

4. OT: remember the strange spiral marks under the BDP some time ago? I know what they are now because they also appeared in front of my mother's home ltely: after chemical cleaning of the walls using some spray apparatus...

Hmmm...a lot of that graffiti now looks familiar! ;-)

What, have you been running around Edinburgh with a can of paint, Smerk?

I miss you too, Boo, even though I didn't make it out there to Scotland!

And I saw some graffiti today (well, yesterday, now) that I need to get a picture of to show off. Further details pending my getting a camera and going out there again. . .
