People I've Seen Recently

  1. Mick Jagger, at the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park.

  2. A guy with a snake draped over his shoulders on the Central Line. The snake was about two feet long, and not especially vicious-looking. (It did have that “scary snake look” to it of course though.) He and his friends were playing with it. When he got up to get out at Tottenham Court Road he draped it over his neck and pulled the collar of his shirt up a bit higher.

  3. A homeless guy sleeping on the street near Holborn Station. Beside his head was a full platter of sandwiches on a silver dish, with Glad Wrap still covering it. His fly was also open and you could see things. Eww.
