I had intended posting about Borderline Personality Disorder but I'm too tired and with too little time tonight to give the subject the care it deserves. Hopefully tomorrow.
Instead I have a post which is neither topical nor in good taste but, hey, what do topicality and good taste have to do with this blog? Don't answer!
Tonight I took the children and a friend out to a cafe - open until 10 - which we visit infrequently. For about the last year or so they've had a photo hanging above one of the tables and I've always been tempted to blog about it. Tonight is that night. The cafe was really quiet when we were leaving and so with my new - my first- camera-phone I took a photo of the photo on the wall.
I'm sorry about the picture quality. I sort of sneaked the photo quickly but, in case you can't make them out, Tony Blair is on the left and Jack McConnell - at this time Scottish First Minister - at the right front. The original was taken two days before the elections to the Scottish Parliament.
Every time I see this photo I think, "Would I show this photo if Tony Blair had eaten in my cafe?" No, I wouldn't. Mind you, I can't imagine anyone would put up a photo today showing Gordon Brown eating in their cafe - he might not even get in the door.
Now I know you're wondering what's happened to the poor taste I promised you: it's just about to come.
If you remove the 2nd "n" from the legend you get a message which would make the photo well worth promoting!
Told you it was poor taste.
