had to miss holy joes last night a rare thing ... problem was that it hurt to speak
makes a change ... usually it's others who hurt when i speak :) (just get in there before the likes of Liz do)
so Kathryn has commented that her kids like dfg ... well i can understand that they are apparantly the future of rock n roll ... as for Luci becoming their groupie i really do not recommend this ... during the break between sets the boys were asking me if i was going to sort out some 'honey's' for them ... i pointed out that i didn't pimp for them ... they are talented but mad ... we have constant reminders of their madness ... on arrival at one of their gigs this week we arrived to find them playing chess with each other ... not very rock n roll
spending firework night in cambridge visiting maggi ... wanted to try and find fireworks to take with me ... i don't normally bother with fireworks ... at the risk of sounding a bit humbug i always feel like i am rolling up £20 notes and lighting blue touch paper ... but there will be children there and they do like pretty things ... problem is where do you buy fireworks nowadays ... when i was a kid every newsagents on every street corner stocked them ... i don't know where to start looking ... i shall go on a search ... any suggestions?
i have a deadline to try and finish some writing befoe i start my advocacy training and it is so difficult to impose a deadline ... i have been just doing it when i am in the mood to write ... now all of a sudden i have to sit down and do some writing ... at which point my mind goes blank or i find three things i really must do first before i start ...
still visiting the gym but i have had to pause while i am ill ... can hardly be bothered to to walk let alone run/row/bike ... my main incentive is that next april is our 20th wedding anniversary and we are planning a party ... i have already seen the wife in the dress she is planning to wear and i can't think of anything worse than standing next to her looking like some old blob of a man ... damn her size 8ness and her clingy dress ... so it helps me to stay focused on looking slimmer and fitter for that event but am worried that this might turn into an obsession ... how come we devlop pills to make us feel all fuzzy and warm (prozac) and yet we don't have pills to keep us looking 21 ... mind you being 40+ and looking 21 would be a bit freaky
i shall spend today languishing ... being ill does allow you to flomp about in 'relaxed' clothes and watch tv and read ... guilt free and totally justified because really you can't do anything cos you feel so rotten
