Snow is still exciting

Despite being "almost 30" I still turn into an 8 year old when I see snow...

Observations on banking

I went to HSBC Bank at the Scott Arms earlier, to withdraw some dough. I have 3 observations:

1. The "starting your own business" leaflet had a cool looking dude with 2 tattoos, wearing a t-shirt and jeans and no shoes, sitting on a stool.

2. The in house radio station was playing Sympathy for the Devil.

3. There were cardboard cut outs with pictures of a. two pandas hugging; b. a baby polar bear; c. a cute tiger cub. It wasn't immediately clear why, although eventually I did see a little display of bookmarks about how sustainable HSBC were.

Banks are weird.

You know those "you know you are a child of the 80s if you..." email things?

Well, I have an addition for them...

You know you're a child of the 70s or 80s if you can't pull up the hood of your coat without feeling like Obi Wan.
