That Girl Got Juice You Know

Now Playing: Dizzee Rascal vs Vitalic
Topic: Eurotrash

I have certain friends, who, when I talk to them, I grow. Growing as in becoming wiser. In the sense that I learn about myself, I understand more about the world, I work things out, and god knows it always takes me a long sodding time to work anything out. Everything I say to them gets reflected back, but wiser. Of course, this happens with all your friends, that's what truly good friends are for - but some people, it happens every single time we meet. They're Derby, Krystal, and mostly, Duch.
When Derby left London for good, I remember one of the last things she said to me was an instruction 'stay in touch with Krystal. She's growing faster than any of us.'
So, anyway, I now have nearly two and a half weeks of unblogged stuff I've been avoiding catching up on here (because for some reason I still want this place to be a diary for me before it dies, of what happened in the year that I blogged it all), not really having made sense of any of it.
I don't like it when I don't write in a diary style - without those moments, the blog feels like it's become a radio show, just so much babbling into the ether.
Last night I went and learnt ten tons about myself with Krystal, and a lot of things have clicked into place.
Bsides which, I blame her entirely for making me drink again, it wasn't as if I walked into the cafe, sank into the lumpy leather sofa and ordered the waiter to bring me a cocktail instantly, either. Oh no.

Will I stop procrastinating and write about what's happened to me lately? Or will I write some more crap about cooking chickens?

In the meantime, if you're not reading Countin Flowers today, up there in my top blogs section, you should be.

You are just the nicest. I blush uncontrollably underneath my stress-reliever gel mask that I just slathered all over my face. (it's so slimy, yet feels sooo good!)
Anyways ... you know how you said a little while ago that there are blogs that you read where you think to yourself, "We would be friends in real life"? Well, c'mon - that's exactly how I feel here, chica.
The night that you had last night is the good stuff. Cherish it. But don't knock the stuff about the chickens! :) It also has it's place & it is wicked funny.
Suffice to say, THANK YOU. For the shout out, for posting the good stuff, no matter if it's funny or sad or poignant or just so damn personal that "it seems damn near inconsequential." (by the way, I have a few quote notebooks of my own)
Ok - now I'm just getting silly with too much coffee & not enough sleep. :P

Late July. This whole blog thing is interim.

I get only pretty yellow and orange stripes when I click on the Countin Flowers link.

I used to have friends who 'grew' too.

Are you really gonna go at the end of July??? What will I do?? Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease don't go!! I thought maybe you'd change your mind and stay.. Nothing is 'crap'. A blog is what you want it to be. You don't have to write it like a diary. When you look back at it, you will be able to see what you *weren't* blogging, because you know everything that has been going on. Maybe the things that you *don't* blog will say more to you in the future, than the things that you did?

The background takes a while to load on upsaid. If you click on it to open in another window, then go back to it in a minute or two, it'll all be there. I dunno what connection you have, but it takes about 30 seconds longer than usual to load using adsl.

That's a good point.

What I was kinda hoping is that I wouldn't have time in my day to blog anymore by then. It's a challenge I set myself.

Selfishly, I'll miss the hell out of you, but it's sounding like come July the blog project or experiment will be complete as you see it, and that's what it's about --how you see it. ;)

Let's hope so. ;)

Not for me. Mind you, I think I ask rather too much of it.

I don't know what the hell is wrong with my page - it sucks. Eventually, I will master the new-fangled Dreamworks or some shit like that, but until then, even I can't get on the damn site & I'm the freaking author.


Have a nice day!
