Reading Night

Last night I went down to this. It was a whole lotta fun. I really enjoyed all the readings and all the people there seemed very nice. Well done to Chris and Sally for organising it all. Particularly enjoyed Jenn and her fish assassination (i never know when to stop spelling that word) training and Socrates and his messy encounter with his boss. There was also a top multi-media bit when Shane Jones read to us via a projection from a laptop or something. It was all very exciting. Being a bloody fool, I was all nervy and fidgety at the start when people were on and consequently drank almost constantly to avoid looking odd. So by the end of the evening I was quite pissed, I hope I didnt make an arse of myself. I look forward to the next one of these nights.

Early retirement

I've noticed recently that every morning, as i'm leaving my flat and walking to the bus, i start thinking about what it would be like to retire. I would get up the same time as everyone else, but then just set up a chair on the pavement and watch people scurry off to work. I would not scurry or do the strange frankenstein lurching I seem to have developed as a means of transport of late, I would mosey or stroll. Or potter about. But mostly I would just sit on my chair and laugh at all the stressed folk running for the 42 bus. I would befriend/annoy the local shopkeepers. I would walk along beside learner drivers practicing maneuvers and shout supportive things like 'GO ON!', 'YOU ARE DRIVING NOW, EH?' and 'DON'T FREAK OUT!'. I would probably need a garden. Given that my flat is roughly the size of a disabled toilet and has no garden outside, I would have to cultivate one on my walls. Sideways plants could be interesting.

These thoughts usually last up until I stick my music on and then they are just irritating and as I travel closer to town it becomes more apparent that I will in fact not be retiring for what seems like approximately 1 million years.
