So yesterday, every flight in the UK was cancelled, apparently because some volcano erupted in some faraway country called Iceland that most people thought was a made-up place where Santa was supposed to live, and sent out a bunch of smoke into the atmosphere.
Well, I looked out of my window yesterday - nada - and I'm sitting here looking out of my window now, and i can't see the tiniest waft of smoke heading my way. In fact, i've only ever seen crystal clear skies like these before on a postcard from Switzerland. I think this is all a big conspiracy and that something really interesting is happening somewhere and some power-mad douchebag doesn't want us to know about it.
