A Monday stroll into BS1.
Into the centre of this great city today to see a man about temping and long term jobs. I saw an agency and as it happens I am already their client at work so they have been very accommodating and sent my CV to a ton of their offices in this part of the UK. We shall see.
Now then, I also went to several other cool places, and took a pint reading the New York Times which was a jolly old read with its curious Americanisms.
Caught short a little before my appointment I needed to see a man about a dog so I strolled into the Bristol Marriott where they are usually a bit sniffy about casual passers by. A man in a top hat opened the door and said good afternoon, and I said it back to him equally sincerely, ditto all the other super-polite staff. I had a wander around and a quick visit to the most elegant and elaborate public convenience in the city! Here's the outside of the hotel. Nobody seemed to mind me being there and to be honest I was not a scruffy bugger while I was there today so maybe they took me for a guest.
After that I had a quick gander at Bristol Cathedral which is 868 years old.
Here's a quick little movie. It's a bit grainy really because I was being disapproved of whilst taking it. Only a little bit though.
After my time at the recruitment agency I strolled home and all the attractive women in BS1 seemed to take their lunch at the same time. Ideal!
