    What's New with You?

    Just catching up with everyone. Just drop a line or two about what is new in your life. For instance my divorce will finally be official on Thursday. I am seeing someone new.

    Volume 1, Fifth Book, Chapter 3
    Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.

    Sat down. Chair exploded. Ended up sitting amongst wreckage. My dignity is gone, but more importantly, so is my chair.
    "I should only believe in a God that would know how to dance. And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity- through him all things fall. Not by wrath, but by laughter, do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!" - Nietzsche

    Good stuff, but didn't you learn from the first time? Just joking.

    Working in a new kitchen...I have to be there for 10 hours, 6 days a week when the owners go to India for a month... cost/benefit analysis going on.

    Hey Bien, I'm glad to hear about your romantic progress. For my part, I discovered that cities have these things called "thrift shops" which basically changed my life but now I have to buy another dresser.

    Ha, ha, no it's even sexier than that, it's a real Bobby Dazzler!

    It's also the warmest I've felt outside for about the last 6 months as well, and that includes having four layers (two coats) and scarf, hat, gloves, two trou, etc, that I have been wearing of late. Got it in a sale with about 50 notes knocked of it as well, so that's win/win/win.

    Here is the link and video - you must watch the video of it - but it looks much better on me than that ugly porky bloke.

    I'll have to post a pic of me with it when sorted, posing outside some place sometime with my jacket and bike. New Lit Net heartthrob material, move over Loka!

    (I have a rustic brown leather jacket too for the traditionalist but it's just not practical, cold in winter and warm in summer. Not really suited leather jackets and bikes, never knew that.)

    Those are some serious leather pants right there.
    I'm weary with right-angles, abbreviated daylight,
    Waiting for a winter to be done.
    Why do I still see you in every mirrored window,
    In all that I could never overcome?

    Wow! It really is a Bobby Dazzler. You'll probably draw admiring glances from the local young lollipops, only don't let the wife know.
    I prefer black leather but my leather jacket is very much like this as I left the juvenile look behind a long time ago:

    Well that's a stunner too, you would be fighting off all those sophisticats you get down London way with that one - "glass of Pinot miss?"

    I very nearly did not get my jacket because I'm not into the sport style jacket at all, but did so because of the practicality of it being specifically designed for road wear, warm, water proof etc. I'm glad I did though because it does all of those things unbelievably better than I would have thought, so warm, but with the added attraction as you say of having to fight off the lollipops.

    What's also happening in Neely town is I've got two weeks out of jail/work! (Insert the party image thing here!) Some Cumberland Ale hitting the neck tonight!

    ...

    Also, just have to share this funny moment that I overheard today. This teacher was talking about someone who wanted to buy a cross/crucifix from a shop. He walked in and asked to buy one and the young bit behind the counter said, quote, 'do you want a plain one or one with a man on?' A man? Ha, ha...

    Well they're not quite so sophisticated nowadays as we have gone from this:

    The crucifix incident is a reminder to us all that education is a wonderful thing; it reminds me of:

    You can take it from me. If you drop it onto a hard surface it will seriously curtail your photography.
