so i'm walking down the street, talking with some friends, and i see a man walking towards us. i'm thinking to myself "he looks like someone i know" and then he comes closer and i realize it's fucking rob chaskin!* we both just stand there with a dumb look on our faces while my friends are very confused by my being stopped by random middle aged man. there were mutual "what are you doing in london?"s ("meeting a colleague" was his enigmatic response) and that was about it. he was obviously meeting his colleague right then and i had a meeting to go to so we parted ways. just a bit of randomness on an idle thursday.
also, i reallyreallyreally love everything to do with the victorian era. i don't know if/how this will change my current life plan, but i am in the midst of thinking through it.
