"I'm going out now, I may be some time". I'm going to get a subway from next to all the shennaigans... If I don't come back, well I'm sure you'll not miss me.

I made it back... so I talked to a police man down there and he said "oh, someone just spilt something and they are just taking precautions", he seemed bery calm about it all. Very extensive / expensive precautions for something so simple it would seem, with all the firemen and police. Subway has been closed, and the pavement down that side of aldwych. But they are letting traffic through now. One couple of people I saw were celebrating cause they couldn't get to their office cos the pavement was closed.

Apparently the story is that someone mixed the wrong chemicals in the swimming pool. Crikey I'm glad I don't go to LA fitness any more *if they are trying to give people chemical burns or whatever. Apparently the police told our building security after it was all over.

*the "if" obviously to escape libel cases, "I said 'if', not therefore implying that they had done so"


Hey, why isn't this window resizable? WTF! I can't even remember my original content now, I'm so shocked!
