Oh dear. Her pictures. Not that I'm looking for a particularly feminine, girly girl, but there's something of the shipbuilder about her.

We had a pleasant chat last night. We left it that I'll see if she's free next time I'm in London (me doing the travelling, again). If she'd been better looking I could have found a "conference" fairly quickly, but given her seat-spilling heft I think I'll wait until I'm genuinely down there for something else.

But to talk of someone who is undoubtedly beautifully feminine and provokes no thoughts whatsoever of bulkheads or cranes, I had a great time with Kitty, a quick visit which turned spontaneously into a weekend and a head full of red wine.

I had to nip out of the pub at about 9.30pm to get some money. I put my phone on the table next to Kitty and said, "If that rings tell them that Daddy will be home soon."

It wasn't as bad as it sounds - they were at a party hosted by the gorgeous woman who is (or was, I don't know) having an affair with my friend. I rang her and she assured me that they were OK to get home, as a mutual friend, a responsible mum who hadn't been on the lash all afternoon, was going up to collect her daughter and could walk my children back with hers. I felt a bit guilty going back into the pub, but over the sixth pint of the day I reflected that you can over-parent sometimes and that it's good to encourage autonomy in one's children.


I admire your honesty. Saying you’d make a quicker trip to London if she were more svelte is what’s on every guy’s mind, but many of us wouldn’t say it out loud for fear of insult.

I’m a terrible drinker. If I had six pints in the course of one day I’d probably require hospitalization.

Thank you. I don’t find thin women attractive - I’m surrounded by them at Uni, putting far too much effort into their appearance, and I assume they do it because they are competing with other girls in a contest between their own sex, because you have not seen jealously until you see women looking at other women. But there are limits.

I’m sure you’re a very good civilised drinker though. It’s not the quantity, it’s how you behave on it.

looby, n.; pl. loobies. A lout; an awkward, stupid, clownish person

M / 57 / 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.

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.
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.

The working man is a fucking loser.
