See, you and damned near every set of ovaries that’s met me seems to think Im going to stumble ass-backwards into a throng of delerious anglophilic nymphomaniacs, and yet on paper I am solidly convinced that I simply do not shine. Its not exactly low self-esteem, I dont have the modesty, I know Im a singular product, but there’s no way to tell people that without sounding like a...

I’m in Menominee, MI now. Its cold up here! I can think straight and I don’t get sweaty going up a flight of stairs! Don’t get the visual into your head that I’m some sort of corpulent blob here, I’m just British; if not kept cold and damp at all times we break out in violence and start annexing things; something that if you have ten thousand Englishmen with you is...

Im feeling pretty ambivalent about being British these days. Which might come as a surprise to you who know me as a jokingly adamant nationalist, but hey. [[MORE]] I know Ive not spent a lot of time there in the last ten years, but Ive always felt a fondness for my nation, a sense of identity and purpose that I could be proud of, like a pre-senility grandfather, morally and ethically sound if a...

Her : Ideal first date?
Me : Afternoon: Bar, outside, sunshine, people-watch, Then a restaurant for alcohol-enabled talk. After dinner, a dark and murky bar for drunk then home/seedy hotel for mad sex.
Her : Was that all one date?
Me : That's my usual first date, yes.
Me : ...am I doing it wrong?
How it works : Restaurants
If your place doesn’t have a website with a menu on it? I’m not fucking eating there. It is the 21st century. I want to look you up online. Take some cellphone pictures and use Wordpress for all I care, but be online. Seriously who arethese people reviewing on google? …WORST MISTAKE EVER!

Alright, I’m done. I promise!

I was writing a thing here about abuse, but It got long, and Im tired. In a nutshell : If everyone I know would kindly stop collaborating with your abusers who hit you, demean you, grind down your self-esteem, literally scream at you, and treat you with contempt and disdain, I’d really appreciate it, because I’m running out of faith in humanity.
I cant remember who originally wrote it. they’ll do a much better job than me, Im sure. So Its an analogy about a bird, basically. The bird (usually a sparrow, for connotation and conjuration) flies through the night, the great featureless, star-hung void, flapping through the cold and the dark, shadows of trees zipping past. Suddenly it flies through your window, across the room, and out...
I got that punch line I was waiting on, Cos, you know, Synchronicity. I hope y’all are having a better friday than me.
Started with me electrocuting myself and blowing the fuses for the gatehouse where I work, so I spent all day in a glass box in 90’ weather with no fans and no AC. The car was parked in the sun, because there is no shade. 4pm gave me a window into the brief life of a roast chicken; slow-roast all day, then peel back the foil, whack under the grill, crisp the skin. I got stuck behind some...

Bartleby The Scrivener is one of those stories I either read too early, drunk, or in that weird and malleable fug of puberty. Either was I was soft-headed and this thing hit me like a claw hammer. Its a disturbing story for me, with a theme of withdrawing and asceticism mangled horrifically with depression.

Hesperus : Which Shakespearean Character are you?
[[MORE]] Depends largely on how Im feeling about myself. Hung over and wracked with pathos; Hamlet, most likely; Tragic and brooding, unhelpfully introspective, obsessive and inherently self destructive and seemingly welded to a inescapable fate which costs him his love and his family, only to clear the stage that Fortinbras may give Denmark a better ruler. Or maybe polonius if Im feeling full...

There’s the parable of the prince who boasts of a clean and unbroken heart, and in that story, he meets a man with a ragged, scarred, Franken-heart. The prince recoils in horror, and the old man explains that he gives away pieces of his heart, and in turn, people share theirs with him. sometimes you give and dont receive, and sometimes you receive and haven’t given. Either way, the...
