And this is me ...

Quote of the decade:

"I am almost sure I am not from this planet.

It would be no surprise now if a great hand were to come down from the sky and scoop me up from where I stand (at the Underground station, staring at the escalator that has been broken for weeks yet nobody is fixing) and a great voice were to say, 'Okay Matthew, your testing time is over. You were right. They are all mad. But you are not one of them. You never were. Come and have a cup of tea and we'll explain the whole thing.' And I would be led away.

I have been expecting this since I was a toddler."

(Matthew Parris)
