Check the date!

I suspect this might get lost on my non UK viewers, especially with those who dont get to travel by train, but its so amusing, I have to go with it. Besides which, I need to keep in with Geoff Marshall, as despite all my health issues (sadly not April Fool), for when he takes this series to my beloved West Yorkshire. Yes, each county, and area in England has a least used station. This varies between the Sublime (Redcar British Steel) with about 12 users in a year, to the ridiculous (Oakham) with nearly a million users, but is the only station in Rutland, so…

He’s currently off in Ireland, doing one of his other rail projects, one rather obviously called ‘All the stations in Ireland’, but apparently recorded this in preparation for release today, with full permission from station, and related railway companies.

As you might gather from the date, and the video, Waterloo isnt the least used station in London. Actually, as you might equally have guessed from the date, its actually the busiest station in the whole of the United Kingdom. Therefore yes, its very wittily done. Before you ask, no, I havent got the details of the actual length of a Vicki foot, but I suspect if Geoff finds this, either himself, or through one of his many thousands of fans, we might find out!

So yes, please feel free to enjoy the Waterloo version of least used station

You can also enjoy the one he made of the actual least used station in London, Angel Road

Oh, finally, for anyone who cares, the least used in West Yorkshire, where I live? Pontefract Baghill, which the last I saw, has 2 trains a day in each direction. See you there, Geoff, maybe?

Do you like my new look?

Firstly, and most importantly perhaps, I had planned to post this yesterday, but ran out of time to do so. So yes, consider that fact before reacting too much! It was such a fun idea, I’m posting it anyway.

Yes, sorry if I’ve been quiet for a couple of days, but I’ve been a bit busy. Well, not that I was able to do a lot, stuck in some strange pod thing, but once that guy had grabbed me, resistance seemed a little bit futile, especially given what he wanted to do to me. So, tell me, do you like the new look?

Quite stunning, I reckon. Thankfully, he’s given me a certain level of sentience, which is the only reason I’m able to post this, I’m not quite as blank minded as I look here. Or maybe, he’s programmed me so well that I think I’m sentient, and am really only obeying my designated programming?

Luckily for everyone else, one programmed, totally obedient robot is sufficient for Master, so my acceptance of my new life has saved anyone else from the same experience, so be grateful for that. He said something about me being the ideal subject for something like this, I have no idea what he was hinting at?

Oh fine, sadly, yes, its an April Fool, but I wish it wasnt! And fine, in all honesty, that sentience thing would be ideally replaced by mindless obedience, but anyway… And fine, in an ideal world, I’d have a hood, or helmet to match the suit, too.

But yes, if anyone wants to design me such a suit, ideally with matching hood, or helmet, I’d love one. If you want to make me your mindless (or sentient), obedient slave with it, I’d just regard that as a bonus!

Fine, the video. When it comes to something that has you thinking mind control, brainwashing, and the like, in a futuristic looking video, this ticks the boxes for me! Lucky lady, is all I have to say!
