To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die….

….uplifting tunes for Britain’s Bluest Monday. Sit back, pour yourself a gin and tonic and practise positive visualisation.

1) Johnny Cash, ‘Hurt’. Does everyone you love go away in the end? Then listen to this song.

2) The Carpenters, ‘Goodbye to Love’. Or in fact anything by The Carpenters; Karen’s melancholy vocals are enough to make anyone reach for the razor.

3) Joy Division, ‘ Love Will Tear Us Apart’. Perfect for the tragic bedsit romance.

4) David Bowie, ‘Quicksand’. For knowledge comes with ‘death’s release’, apparently.

5) Lou Reed, Berlin. Purely for the crying child.

That’s all. Don’t be too sad.

It’s been a while…………

Doob looking confused

………….and in that while, I have:

1) Spent three months on a lead bookseller secondment at Tenterden;

2) Spent 5 weeks on a lead bookseller secondment at Ashford;

3) And drunk copious amounts of gin.

So how are all you guys, whoever reads this?  I’m in a strange place – work is good, Jude is good, but other things are weird.  I’m not sure where I’ll be living this time next year, I’m not sure where I’ll be working, and I’m not sure which brand of gin will be in my fridge (but I’m pretty sure it’ll be Gordon’s: Bombay Sapphire is offensive). 

Brilliant episode of Benders tonight – anyone else watch it?  Janine shut Ryan in the freezer, Ian nearly slept with Glenda, Glenda slept with Phil and Ian was caught hiding in Zainab’s cupboard under the stairs  Hilarious all round, really.  I enjoyed Phil and Shirley’s Delboy-esque wallpaper in particular.

Today, I have mostly had Prefab Sprout in my head, smoked and drank gin.  I have also been reminiscing about someone very close to my heart.  Goodnight, gin bless.

P.S. Oops – hadn’t realised quite how much Doob looks like Devil Child in this photo.  Never mind.
