you don't recognise the behaviour or the spelling of your name, and the shape that's in the mirror, well you swear it's not the same
the past week has reminded me of the time i spent last year in coro, venezuela. due to a combination of financial restrictions and stubbornness i ended up with very little money with which to buy food. i would drink lots of coffee for breakfast and lunch followed by unsubstantial meals for dinner and i savoured every little snack which i could find in my backpack. i think i made a bag of haribo last longer than any human before me in history. i was working on a website which would lead to a pay packet that i could put towards some real food, however my computer was being typically obstinate and constantly crashed at regular intervals. my dreams consisted of the different meals i would someday eat interspersed with different ways i'd execute my miscreant laptop - all as the kilogrammes rapidly fell away. now it's a different country, a different year, a different computer but a worryingly similar situation. a lack of money resulting in a poor diet and a misbehaving computer preventing me from working towards that money. the difference being that in the months preceding the current circumstance my diet was significantly more generous than my pre-venezuelan diet, so this time i don't look 'emaciated' so much as 'less fat'

here's the original
But you didn't mention the other major difference: in Coro it was PC-induced; in London Mac-induced. Vive la différence, eh!
