Month: July 2005

  • my round

    well in a few minutes i am off down the pub to undo all the good work a month without alcohol might have done me but to be honest.. i haven’t felt better this month, i haven’t lost weight or slept better, i do not find that my skin is clearer or my hair shinier.…

  • What do I want from a relationship? Part IV

    Some of my first love’s first words to me were ‘I believe I have felt that rhythm of Yours somewhere before’. Naturally, I knew what she meant, there was an instant understanding between us, a connection and an uncanny sense of synchronisity. I tend to think in terms of wavelengths and resonant frequencies; Something that…

  • What do I want from a relationship? Part III

    I have what Ali G’s cousin Simon Baron Cohen calls an ‘extreme male brain’, or in the words of one well versed ex i am an ‘autistic fuckhead’. Knowing this about yourself ameliorates most of the problems it might cause and fortunately i am naturally extremely considerate of others but obviously I can appear callous…

  • What do I want from a relationship? Part II

    One is wary of shopping lists and I am not looking to animate a monster made from my favourite parts of previous partners. But nonetheless I can see with the benefit of hindsight and wishful thinking which qualities I adore and what aspects of a person would excite me most and what they’d have that…

  • two cheers

    well, I didn’t manage a full month friday was day 21 and going out for a womantic dinner, i excused myself from my artificial obligations to play the perfect host and share a bottle of vintage champagne with my dinner companion. Very nice it was too.. I had a glass of syrupy dessert wine afterwards…

  • What do I want from a relationship? Part I

    Everything really. But mostly an ally against emptiness and ennui. If a Djinn were to appear to me and grant me the traditional three wishes, I would first ask him to materialise a hippo in my bathroom, then having satisfied myself that there was indeed a real live hippo in my bathroom, I would ask…

  • The Streets of London

    Some months ago, after an amazing curry at Tayabs in Whitechapel with 30 friends, three of us travelled home on the tube. We were sharing a can of Strongbow Super Strength (7.4% abv.) and we felt a little like singing. Arriving on the platform, we heard in the distance a rowdy chorus of that by…

  • London

    i failed to get into work.. turfed off tubes at 9am at london bridge.. stopped for a greasy breakfast oblivious to what was going on.. thought i might be able to catch a Docklands Light Railway train out to work in Canary Wharf. so crossed the river, walked to tower bridge and on to aldgate…

  • SCUM-tek, Lee Valley Sports Ground, E15

    No that is not just the camera, life was blurry by that point. Spent saturday into sunday afternoon at SCUM-tek, It was very, very good It was in a huge disused ground in east london. we got there a bit after mid-night and there were about 8 major rigs set up and quite a few…

  • This is not a love song

    Apropros of nothing (no seriously) I’ve made a little more progress on an almost-poem I’ve been carrying round in my head for absolutely ages.. I haven’t any space for it anymore and I doubt I’ll ever improve it to the point of it having any point, I might as well just post it as is.…

  • Miso Soup

    in

    I now find myself thinking about miso soup and I am uneasy about it. It is a foodstuff that leaves me in great ambivalence. On one hand it is rather moreish and extremely healthy invention that is a great accompaniment to sushi. On the other hand, it tastes of fishes’ wee. I do almost always…

  • the end of things

    by

    in

    the last 36 hours were a very strange day and a half.. the end of many things attended by some extreme highs and lows and any number of jolts sideways. the chain began during thursday at work where the first deadline of my entire year at the bank hurtled towards us and then hurtled past…
