I Swear I Thought This Was a Joke

Am going to London this weekend.  (Yes, I know.  Just got back from Santa Barbara.  It's sort of a two-quick-vacation month rather than one long one.  Just worked out that way.)  ANYWAY, I am trying (with increasing levels of frustration) to find a day-trip to take on Saturday and I stumbled upon ... well ... this.

Be sure to check out the map, which proclaims that #8 is "Rest Rooms -- For our visitors' comfort without the squalor of Victorian hygiene."

Were the damn thing in London, I'd actually go.  Because, seriously, this needs to be seen.

"Surely you jest."

"Don't call me Shirley!"

Really now, m'dear. You wouldn't stoop so low as to subject yourself to the sniveling, surly brats of four or five continents for a half day's occupation? What's wrong with a tour of Pinewood Studios, a(nother) visit to the Croydon Museum and the Riesco Collection of Chinese Ceramics?


Perhaps a day trip floating along the London Canal would be more to your liking?

Kayaking (canoeing in GB) opportunities abound - perhaps you'd like to learn what it feels like to be a flea on an elephant's ass? -- a guided trip on the lower Thames estuary next to the shipping lanes might be in order.

Have you taken a turn on the London Eye?

Just don't waste your day on "Dickens World." Even the Dickens House Museum would be preferable...

I think I'd have to check that out if I were you!
