Now Playing: Christina Aguilera, which explains the run of bad luck.

Dammit, dammit, DAMMIT.

I just cooked a 'serious' meal (vegetables, and everything), then realised I said I'd go see Kinky in Old Kent Road in an hour's time. He's cooking, too. God dammit. I ate a real lunch and a real breakfast, too. Now I'll eat two real evening meals (Kinky cooks really nice stuff) and probably hurl on the way home.
And I did three hours of overtime, trying to get ready the two or three hours of training I have to deliver to grumpy fractious misbehaving adults tomorrow, then forgot to find or copy the list of what I want them to do.
I forgot to sign a cheque for the electricity bill a month ago, and still haven't sent it back. I owe four people return phone calls.
I tried to switch bank account on my car insurance, and ended up cancelling both debits by mistake.
And now there's no time to blog what I was going to blog.
I just ate a hundredweight of grapes. That'll make me feel better, nuh?

Later on - Much Later

Ooopsy, I realised I hadn't seen Kinky for at least two years. Last Monday, I met Jogger for an hour on her way back to York, and realised I hadn't seen her for three years, which is a downright shame.
Kinky fed me delicious things - duck crispy pancakes, ice cream with M&Ms and Revels thrown in. I didn't vom, but I am one fat pudgy Vanessa, now - four meals in one day beats the usual round of toast by miles.
I was surprised that Walworth is only thirty minutes from here. I should really call round more often, especially as Kinky, like K, is another of those terribly wise people who says things that make you think about things all the time. He went through a much messier more traumatising break-up than mine three years ago, and we discussed it tonight. It was weird to hear the fine detail of things I only knew about remotely at the time they happened (he was in the States then). He had all the friends who don't call because they don't know what to say, the fear that too many choices will be immobilisingly scary, the wanting not to make the same emotional mistakes again, and again.
His verdict was not to keep wishing your life ahead to 'when everything will be all right again', but just to experience things as they are now. Maybe looking for somewhere to live will actually be interesting. Maybe I could enjoy it.
He also helped me look through the maps and flat adverts pile, to decide what area of London to live. And in the rain, in the dark, in a speeding car, even Bermondsey didn't look too bad.

Grapes are supposed to clear and detoxify the system - good choice, perhaps not a hundredweight though, could give you the sh|ts

No way that I'll end up eating more than my stomach can hold. I'd have to wait to eat there or eat at my place and damn kinky's cooking. I definitely wouldn't want to throw up.

Just blame it all on Christina Aguilera. That's what I do. But I also have forgotten to check my mail for so long that the postman left me a note asking if I was alive (I of course wrote back "No, I'm not").
Grapes are good for the soul, but hurling on the way home is even better.

Me either - it wasn't a promise, just a likelihood. Anyway, Kinky cooked me duck and ice cream (not together) with sweeties thrown in. So now I'm just a fat round Vanessa. Four meals today! Usually I struggle to do one.

Revels in icecream? Hmmm.. Did he remove the orange cremes?

No - there were disgusting orange, coffee and toffee ones mixed in. How lifelike, eh?

Heh, that's a good thing. You can be sure they were nibbled first, see.

The sweeties in your ice cream was my idea, I must confess - the M&Ms bleed their colour into the ice cream really pleasingly.
So, yeah, they'd definitely been nibbled first.

Actually I meant weren't, but my fingers were in too much of an early morning (mc)fluffy to type with any precision.

I find peoples distaste for coffee chocolates a most confusing thing. There's nothing more choice than a comely coffee creme or the captivating charm of that cornucopia of comestibles the coffee cup. Is there something wrong with that?

My original Internet God, Sie, said: There's nothing more choice than a comely coffee creme or the captivating charm of that cornucopia of comestibles the coffee cup. Is there something wrong with that?

Depends. If you have a liking for old flangey rear flap-crud that's been wiped around an oily coffee cup, then probably coffee cream would taste edible to you.
For most people, however, coffee is merely the most acceptable of the nefarious sub-world of Cream Chocs - the worst chocs in the box (bar toffee).

Yes, that Old Flangey will do anything for a can of Special Brew but I want nothing to do with his rear flap-crud. I personally wouldn't ever want any contact with his sort never mind any proximity to my chosen beverage but I suppose you're used to such contact. ;-P

I quite like toffee chocs too. I hate nutty ones and I don't mean Suggs and co.

Ones with alcohol in them are best, I find. ;-)
