...from yesterday has been made private (to me only) for the time being. For those who didn't see it: basically, bit of a tricky time for me and Mary-Ann. Will report back later.

I think I’ve said this before but… you need to just go with the flow of it a bit more… distance is an issue but so what - that should make the face to face time even more special.

Stop trying to make it all perfect now - go with what is and try to figure all the difficult stuff out further up the road

(BTW best advice I can ever give anyone is… don’t listen to my advice I know shit!)

Well, I’ve got some news for you, pal. Yesterday’s post can still be read in its entirety in Google Reader. I’ve had that happen, too. Tried to delete a post but, apparently, once Reader has it, it’s out there.

I misread “cooking for you” as “choking you!” I’m not kidding! What would Freud say?

Oh well, if it’s what I wanted to say yesterday then it’ll just have to stay in the wild. And it hasn’t quite got to the point of possible strangulation yet :)

You talk sense, Mr Further. Nothing’s going to be perfect. (Can’t help a tiny bit of me wanting the whole fucking thing though :)

agree that sometimes distance can make the time together more enjoyable… one of the healthiest relationships i had was with a gent who lived 800 miles away, and we’d see each other maybe once a month on business trips. other than the fact that he was married, it worked out really well…

(yeah. not a good one to be giving you advice, either, i reckon…)

I don’t really want that. I want to go out with the girl next door (not literally, she’s a Muslim), to ring someone up and just say “Up to anything? See you in ten mins?”

looby, have you been deleting my comments?
Have I upset you in some way?
I’ve put in comments twice, seen them in the post and then they just seem to vanish.

Really? Not at all TSB - to both questions.

Try again - I haven’t touched anything! :)

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

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.

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.

The working man is a fucking loser.
