I was at a dinner party last night and the talk turned to Utopias. It got me thinking - fuck that. What I want is to live in a Metopia.
My perfect Metopia would be... all about me.
-There would be a reshuffling of the working week so that you only work 4 out of every 7 days.
-Morning television would be illegal, and Mel and Kochie would be serving lifetime sentences.
-Also illegal would be instant coffee - life is just too short.
-The Fashion Police would actually have powers to fine and arrest those committing misdemeanours and infringements such as: yellow that doesn't match the wearer's complexion, skinny jeans on non-skinny legs, and socks and sandals.
-Wine would not produce hangovers.
-Somehow or other I would receive a stipend just for being me.
