The Well of Loneliness (not)

  Tue 27th March 2012

It's coming up to 6 and I'm in the back room of the Sun, with the glass-covered well in the middle of the room. You can stand on it and peer down and look at the source of the water which residents here drank before mains water arrived. We've had a planning meeting for our Dickens event, which New Business Colleague thinks is "fucking shit" because he's uneducated and needs help. It's good working with Kev and Neil. You can be honest and question things without them getting all prickly.

I'm drinking the lovely Ross-on-Wye dry cider. Every batch they make is different. They grow forty varieties of cider apple on their farm and every time you drink it it will be different. It's all unpasteurised, it's all pressed and made in their orchard. We should get the EU to limit the word "cider" to the kind of things that Ross-on-Wye are doing rather than this placcy bottled shite that teenagers get pissed on in bus shelters. It damages the name of a drink that should be part of English gastronomy.

Bit of an awkward meeting with Seriouscrush and boyf last night (the owners of my house). They seemed to think I am profiteering from their lease. They own two other houses, each worth about 450 grand. It was a managed evening; a spontaneous laughter about something we were saying corrected by the cloud of the issue before us. I didn't want to appear too grateful about their generosity towards me; and always, the receding memory of my affair with Seriouscrush. They were saying that the honesty with which they deal with me isn't being reciprocated. No, maybe not, but honesty is a privilege of the wealthy.

Mary-Ann texts this morning. It's a surprise. I reply, saying that I'm missing her, which I am. I miss her tits and the way she gave herself to me (and I to her) as a sexual recreation ground one Sunday, while Stefan moved about in the bedroom opposite and went for a noisy piss, failing to do what any person with an atom of sensitivity would do, which is to fuck off down the pub for a few hours. I suggest ringing her. She replies cautiously. "I'm not very good at doing the casual as a sequel to the intense x."

I just want a bird I can go out drinking with, go dancing, get pissed, chat with the first thing that comes into your head, easy selfish skin touching, which doesn't mean fucking each other in seven equally satisfying positions, fall asleep, bother her in the morning, massive fry up, fried eggs and black pudding.

I'm torn between wanting to reply and thnking she's too deep for me. On my dating profile it says "I've got the spiritual depth of a puddle, so while you're off finding yourself in Peru I'll find the corkscrew." And I'm not sure if I fancy her that much.

Your last sentence is the only answer you need.

You’re right.

I think I’ve been in the Sun, when I used to work the North of England, if it’s the same place, do they do guest accomodation?

Never could stand Dickens. Too boring.

I reallymiss English cider, especially the stuff from Bath and beyond. The NZ cider is mostly crap. Reminds me of Diamond White.

I knew it, I knew it, I prophesised it, you and M-A are getting together again for a guilt-shag.

What you do with your black pudding is entirely up to you and the Health and Safety Committee. Just don’t waste such an ambrosial foodstuff.

I agree with Homer. You do. Revel in the freedom while you have it.

Well there’s quite a few Suns of course but this is ours. It’s a great place, a proper old fashioned inn which you can use for almost any social purpose. Great staff, excellent range of drinks.

No-one does cider like the English. Nothing comes close, not even in Normandy or Brittany.

Not really bothered about “freedom". It’s not much of a freedom to not have anyone to muck about with. But in the very short term, I’m going to get my black pudding out and slap in in the pan!

Already said - the last sentence sums up where you are with this

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


M / 56 / 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.
Chinese man I met during Freshers Week at Lancaster University, 2008

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.
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.
