IN RESPONSE TO YOUR QUESTIONS, the dinner of yumminess devoured on Saturday night was four (fried) Bird's Eye Vegetable Fingers (fried in Sainsbury's own brand marge (next thing up from Value range), in wholemeal pitta breads from the Turkish corner shop with a dash of Sainsbury's own tomato ketchup. Mmmm!! Really yummie!!
My correspondent Slaghammer posted up a wonderful Youtube video: Male Restroom Etiquette. As well as Male Restroom Etiquette: A Response, there's a Female Restroom Etiquette for your entertainment as well as lovely old Spiders on Drugs. So have an entertaining time regarding these links. And all credit to Slaghammer. Who has one of the most entertaining commentary images I've ever seen. I hope y'all have immense fun regarding these viddiclips..!!..
I could not get to a computer yesterday, hence nothing said. Yesterday was a pretty "straight" day; ie no drugs. Having lost a bottle of methadone I thought I was going to be feeling rather unwell. Don't get me wrong, I HAD taken some, but really felt I could do with quite a lot more. So when eventually I did find the mislaid hundred milligrams bottle -- man I was disco-dancing into the evening!!
There's little sensible to say now. I'm still reading my Dostoyevsky (Crime and Punishment, the English translation). Saw some wonderful David Attenborough nature films on Mother Hubbard's television yesterday. Life on Earth: what a blast from the past that one was. I remember watching when that first came out and thinking how amazing it all was, the shots they'd got. And I was only something like ten back then ..! Later on last night they showed Meercat Manor (they love Meercats at the BBC: I do find their contrived names: Bluebell, Shakespeare, Parsley rather idiotic but that's naturalists for you, there you go.) Later still it was coastal waters of the Indian meets Atlantic Oceans on the blunt tip of South Africa. If you're going on a beach holiday be sure to pick the Right Hand Side (ie the East side) of the Cape/whatever it's called because on that side the water's warm as a bath. On the other side, I'm reliably informed, you can barely stick your toe into it. But it's lovely for great white sharks! The Indian Ocean warm current mixed vividly with the Atlantic cold on thermal sattelite image: creating a wonderful glow. And myriads of tropical reef fish swirled and gleddered about the teeming waters. It looked lovely. Hammerhead sharks came out to eat them. And sardines appeared too. They were probably looking for a tin. Don't they like use discarded tins and matchboxes as their fishy bedroom..?
Well I'm rabbitting now and shall have to go.
O I forgot to tell the news of my madhouse: Laundretta was all set to have an operation today but pulled out at the last moment. Having had a special meeting with the anaesthetist and told him about her methadone dose, alcohol drinking and heroin smoking, she was told to cut down on all of these as much as possible. And of course in trying to do so stressed herself so incredibly much, poor girl, that she ended up on a drunken bender all weekend. Now she's too paranoid to come in incase the anaesthesia won't work properly because of her enormous tolerance to opiates (and alcohol shows a crosstolerance to benzodiazepines and barbiturates, I think. All of which drug families are employed in the general anaesthesia cocktails modern hospitals use.) So I don't blame her reluctance to go under not knowing if she truly will go under. I mean, what could be worse than waking up under the scalpel as many people have done, especially with the modern methods of light anaesthesia... She tells me she's going to arrange a proper and full alcohol detox before next time. I hope this is true and not just a fob-off. She doesn't need to fob off me. But I don't want her to fob off herself. Her life is one hell of a mess. She seems always to have surrounded herself with bad men ... I do feel sorry for her sometimes.
All the best now and take care, y'all!!
