12)    Debate whether or not to share on twitter or facebook

13)     Worry about the mangy dog sniffing around your feet

15)      Judge the boy wearing sunglasses. The sun doesn’t come up for another 22 minutes (it’s now 6.22am).

24)        Be infinitely grateful for the free wifi.

25)        Publish your list on the internet just in case the internet was wondering what you were doing right now

26)       Congratulate self for dry wit
