  Fri 10th August 2012
My visit to my Mum and Dad's was curtailed by a day as the girls wanted to go to their best friend's birthday party. None of us involved minded our stay being shortened. My Dad is needy, unwilling to let my Mum away from his side even to go to post a letter. more »

Inching

  Sun 5th August 2012
The law of diminishing returns is kicking in. I'm taking inches when yesterday centimetres would do. But fuck it, Kitty and Melissa are up and it's the weekend, and I've got a righteous desert of sobriety coming up at my Mum and Dad's next week. more »

Your girlfriend

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

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.
