What it's like to write to your MP 

Me: Hey can you do [progressive thing]?

My MP: We are very committed to [centrist disappointment]

It got another major upgrade in 2013.

It is the beginning of a new week, friends

This morning I walked past a new business dedicated to repairing and servicing coffee machines, with the name of "Caffeine Fix".

This knowledge brought me joy.
