I like Mondays

  Sat 24th July 2010

Along with someone else I've been worried that these posts are becoming very one-dimensional. Then, at the same time, I'm writing about something very new to me - sex - which I spent 11 years not having.

On Monday I texted Linda, who, as she is finishing a PhD and working fulltime, has refused most of my invites for a few months. Knowing she'd be still be working, I suggested we could meet up at 10ish. "You read my mind! Sun, 10ish?", she replied.

When we're together, I'm sure everyone thinks we're boyfriend-girlfriend. I was walking home and she texted saying she'd had a lovely evening. "Me too," I said. "I love you Linda." The love you have in friendships is one of the most precious things in the world.

On a more prosaic level, and feeling a bit frisky and drunk on Thursday at late o'clock, I texted Frances: "I don't suppose by any chance you fancy any company tonight?" She didn't reply so I went to bed. Then the phone rang and in something of a daze, I walked round to hers, feeling a bit ashamed of the phone call, and of taking her up on the generous response to it.

M / 59 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

"Looby is a left-wing intellectual who is obsessed with a) women's clothes and b) tits." -- Joy of Bex.

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.


There are plenty of bastards who drink moderately. Of course, I don't consider them to be people. They are not our comrades.
Sergei Korovin, quoted in Pavel Krusanov, The Blue Book of the Alcoholic

I am here to change my life. I am here to force myself to change my life.

The more democratised art becomes, the more we recognise in it our own mediocrity.

Tell me, why is it that even when we are enjoying music, for instance, or a beautiful evening, or a conversation in agreeable company, it all seems no more than a hint of some infinite felicity existing apart somewhere, rather than actual happiness – such, I mean, as we ourselves can really possess?
Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

I hate the iPod; I hate the idea that music is such a personal thing that you can just stick some earplugs in your ears and have an experience with music. Music is a social phenomenon.
Jeremy Wagner

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.

Using words well is a social virtue. Use 'fortuitous' once more to mean 'fortunate' and you move an English word another step towards the dustbin. If your mistake took hold, no-one who valued clarity would be able to use the word again.
John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.
Terry Eagleton, What Is A Novel?, Lancaster University, 1 Feb 2010

The working man is a fucking loser.
