"I hate these people, I hate this music, I hate this city, I hate my drink, and I really hate these shoes I'm wearing," I found myself thinking grumpily at Dalston Superstore's bar on Sunday.

Returning from a wonderful trip just five days previously, the bank holiday weekend found me in full-on London rejection mode. The buzzing, friend-filled bar and decent music should have marked a perfect return home. So why was I still so down, I wondered? Could it be:

2. Because thelondonpaper was going to close?

3. Simply because a few weeks knocking around a beautiful, sunny country with your best mates makes normal life seem banal in comparison?

Another great entry Josh, but everything has a twist these days, or should I say an element of surprise? Especially when the title of his next post is My new fella really is a man of my dreams. Good luck!
