F / 45 / Rochdale

  Wed 18th May 2011

To the pub last night to pay the rent to Seriouscrush and her boyfriend. She looked gorgeous, in muddy colours, a brown T-shirt, a dark green V-neck top, then another buttoned top in a different shade of brown. A long dark skirt, dark brown tights and flat brown patent leather shoes. She played with her skirt hem as her other hand toyed with her beautiful dishevelled black hair. Half way through the evening she undid her top and took it off, which felt like an exquisite torture. When I got home, not entirely sober, I sent her an understated email, telling her in restrained language that "...there is one man who constantly thinks that you are the most beautiful, sexy and desirable woman in the world."

More realistically, F / 45 / Rochdale describes herself as "A short, chubby, opinionated left-wing feminist who loathes our present government and couldn't give less of a toss about royal weddings if I tried". In the section which asks you what you're good at, she says "swearing". An email has been despatched.

Sounds promising! I love a woman who swears like I do.

Yes, I’m quite liberal with the vernacular myself, so that’s handy.

I am always amazed when I am around a person who talks like I do. I don’t understand why it doesn’t happen more often. You may not be aware of this, but the C word of which you Brits are so fond is not very acceptable in this part of the universe. I use it liberally, and I can easily pick out “my people” by their reaction (or lack thereof)to that word. Also, it is very useful when you want to really and truly piss somebody off.

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.
James Meek

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.
