Trina is here for a couple of days and we are fucking and eating and drinking. She helps me make the food for our Thatcher party. She bends over to get something out of the fridge and I put my hand on her back to keep her there for a bit. "You're going out with a pensioner," she said. Rock buns in the shape of lumps of coal, my sextastic quiche (I'm good at pastry), cucumber sandwiches, and Prosecco.

It looks good all set out on the tablecloth. The Girl Who Only Wears Secondhand Clothes turned up in moss green flatties, orange tights, a greeny-blue kilt, a thin brown and creme patterned top, with her lovely naturally curled hair scaffolded with hairgrips. I was hoping people might comment on my new cushions but they didn't do so, so I drew their attention to them, then instantly regretted displaying my taste at the cost of their indulgence.

We raise a glass not to Thatcher, but to David Gareth Jones, killed at the age of twenty-six by a blow from a policeman's truncheon during the Miners' Strike. It could have been me. I was there.

This morning, early, Trina leaves, fucked. She's left her watch on for some reason. Like when my hand brushed against her earrings the other day, I find the silver jewellery makes me think of her as a slovenly, dirty slut, only good for a fuck until I come, which she will get whether she wants it or not. Combined with an aesthetic thrill of the glint of silver, it turns me on.

On my own, I compose myself for my singing lesson and go through the Schubert song for the hundredthtime. I am nervous, the mixture of performance anxiety and that of a complicated social task, like going on a date. Will he like me? Will I be good enough?

As I leave, I notice an envelope pushed through the door, which I am relieved to have intercepted before anyone else. I let myself out through the back door, in case he's watching the house.

In my lesson, I am nervous and distracted, gabbling to my new teacher about how relatively warmer it has been this week, worrying about whether my neighbour's car had been clamped or impounded.

Afterwards, I walk home and back along my street, trying to simulate the gait of a man who doesn't have to explain to his neighbours why their car has been towed away. To my relief, the car is untouched, and I go inside to read the letter more closely. It's a cunning attempt to get me to sign a Walking Possession Order, which would give the bailiffs unhindered access to my house and possessions.

Wilma rang, asking if I fancied a drink. Having educated myself a little about the meagre rights of bailiffs in English Law, I relaxed with both the beer and her self-orientated babbling, equally welcome. I was in the mood for a friend who doesn't want to know every detail.

Everything is going to be alright. I am going on holiday in a month's time with Kirsty and our girls with money, which I have promised to her, that I will earn from the County Council Elections. I am, and little do they know, Presiding Officer for a Tory-voting village up the valley. I will wear a tie and work twenty-seven hours in two days, be polite and collared with the men, and flirt with the middleaged mums to the extent to which I like how they dress.


Did you read about the Twitter mix-up with Thatcher? Someone created #Now Thatcher is Dead which, unfortunately, also spells #Now That Cher is Dead. The gay community went into a tailspin.

Yes, you mentioned that in a comment a few days ago.

Letting them work themselves through the stages of their attempted intimidation is part of the plan. Someone else’s car can’t be impounded of course. They want me to sign the Walking Possession Agreement. It’s here on the table next to me, with blank spaces for my signature, and that is where it will stay. They’re running out of ideas now. Picking a random car to impound is about the last card they can play.

Sorry it took a while to publish your comment DF. It’s somewhat stressful but every day is a day closer to the time when they will return the debt to the Council and I can negotiate with them in a more civilsed way.

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

M / 60 / 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.
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.
