I have a Dream

..Said Martin Luther King Jr. I think he meant it. Now, if only people over here tried out the whole "Unity" thing. Instead, they go about digging up sacks of buried sugar to try and re-sell them(News).

Frankly, I, as most of the populace surely is by now, am indifferent to the war. Okay, so maybe there'll be an odd bomb or two but still, life goes on. People just don't give a horses posterior... You see, people can get used to more or less anything. Hell, if they can forgive the retailers for insane prices on anything from toothpaste to hand grenades, What's a war? I could live with a war. Now, no broadband, that's impossible, but war is... do-able. I see something wrong with this, but that's what we've come to.

But don't get me wrong, life's not a bed of roses either. It's got it's fair share of thorns ;-) For example, school seems to have taken on a "Hogwarts" like atmosphere towards the middle of the book. EVERYONE is checked, you can't hang about outside. The idea is "Get inside or bugger off home". Also, when you walk around, your mind starts wandering about all the places which can conceal a gift of C4 and ball bearings. Last Thursday, there was a bag lying on a seat in the bus I was in, and as expected, people got freaked, then finally discovered it only contained books. But yet, a few people just got off the bus. Maybe they thought it was a warning.

To be able to take a bus to Jaffna if I feel like it.

Oh that is some answer Jester! Wouldn't that be wonderful?

Anyway, yeah, that would be nice.

LOL,
My dream is to be able to do a Naked Mile(s) to Jaffna and back in one piece.

But tbh If I lived in SL Id jst get used to it too. Life would never be boring as it here.

Though, like you said if there is no broadband-forget it.

I think the Naked Miles would be a bad idea even from col to kandy.... You'll probably get stoned by all the Buddhist moknks on the way :)
