It’s sort of like how only people over a certain age leave comments on PornHub, especially ones directed to the actors themselves as if they’d respond.

What does Confucius know about condoms? Makes for easier cleanup that way.

After the Passport Office website advising me to expect a wait of up to 11 weeks for my renewal, the new one actually arrived in less time that it took for the old one to get there in the post. Don’t even hate the photo in it, which is good because it now appears 4 times in the new, blue, Theresa May Edition.

Who’d have thought? The passport office. Quick and efficient.

I was officially able to make my pledge for the Paint the Roses board game on Kickstarter. It was fully funded within half an hour of going live, but I still got in for the highest tier, so I will be getting the deluxe edition! As a lifelong Alice in Wonderland junky it's like a dream come true in a board game for me!

We got a new CPS case worker. Glad she’s gone because we had so many issues with her. I hope this new case worker is not as bad as the other one.

It's very tempting to make quips about May. And Boris. Pretty much all Conservative leaders here, seem to come with the pre-requisite that they be quip worthy. And usually cringe.

Is it their politics that make them cringe-worthy or is it, on some level, that they lose touch with 'realness'? I'm not sure I find other public figures - from the political left, entertainment, business, cough royals - any more 'real'. But as I think about it, seems like it's more a factor of media coverage, or at least that plays a huge part.

Andrew Yang wrote/talked a bit about how running for President last year really "messed" with his head. He specifically mentioned how deferential people were - I read into it a level of obsequiousness that even surpassed that given to business execs (which is a lot, generally speaking). It all strikes me as pretty strange and off-putting.

I think, somehow, it's the attempt to be perceived as still real that makes their actions so unreal. So let's not be 'big girly swots' about our 'betters' unnatural behavior. ;)

I'm not really sure what it comes from. I mean, Boris just seems so lost in his own bubble most of the time. It isn't that he lacks intelligence, he is quite clearly well educated, when he talks about certain policies, they even make sense, but it's often rhetorical talk, that never materialises and he comes across as bumbling, ineffectual and if one isn't as generous as me, down right negligent. He actually is just that I'd say.

Then there is the smarm. Most conservatives ooze smarminess. Not all. Just many.

I don't think it's the politics, as I've heard some great conservative politicians and thinkers speak and speak well, without sounding like they suffer some awful disconnect with regular people. Instead, they are sober and more often than not.... boring. Which makes sense. I hated Ian Duncan Smith back in the day, because he was dull and seemed to lack any real conviction or energy.

Turns out that, when he isn't heading up the Conservative party, he actually manages to talk very eloquently and with great conviction on a broad range or subjects and makes some sense along the way without seeming like an Etonian sack of dicks.

I do agree that power and prestige change both the person who wields it aswell as those that interact with that person. I suppose different people react differently.

But looking at Theresa May, you can see she is unfit for leadership as she lacks the temperament. She might have had good ideas, but they were never going anywhere with her as PM. She is a supporting character, at best. It's where she shines brightest.

Same with Gordon Brown. The guy was brilliant behind the scenes, crunching numbers, organising the right people. As front man? Broken robot.

We can make similar comparisons with Donald Trump but from a different direction, entirely unfit for any real leadership role, beyond being a brash hyperbolic figurehead with a streak of undeserved megalomania. That was before the presidency. Power just accentuated and legitimised his directionless ramblings.

It may be that I have an inherent mistrust of authority figures that turns me off people, once they get power. But I generally think that real power only really fits well on a rare few, who are best suited to it.

If someone is "trying to be real" they've already lost. You shouldn't need to try. It's never been something I've had to feign.

The bank that my shop uses has apparently got a new employee and I am not exaggerating at all when I say he's both hot and has the best arse I have ever seen in person.

My husband is off on Wednesdays and we went out for lunch and walked the trails by the lake. It takes less to make older gays happy.
