IT'S ALL HAPPENING TODAY AT "CASA VULGARIDAD" (that is now the official name of my London "residence"; we're getting a burnt plaque made up. Laundretta's going to stub out her endless ciggies onto a template I've made. So it should be finished by late this afternoon ...)
OUR BOILER IS NOW fully removed. And lying in the front garden.
AND THEY SAY "A FISH GETS CAUGHT BY OPENING ITS MOUTH ..."
LAUNDRETTA is a bitch! Because I managed to return home, step over the repairman's legs and enter my room without him noticing (I wasn't actually trying to do this, just realized it was what I'd achieved a while later ...) ... she emerged from her room and engaged in slagging me off for half an hour nonstop to this guy who she barely even knows ... all my supposed acts and omissions (some of it was outright libellous) ... she ranted on and on. And me being me, I remained behind my closed door and let her carry on. They say give someone enough rope ... Well she just did. I've always known she slags me off behind my back ~ it's not that that bothers me. It is that she was openly trying to get me thrown out that has me offended. Well don't worry Laundretta. I've kept my mouth shut about you headbutting the back windowpane the third day after you moved in (drunk, of course), I've said nothing about you and your rat of a boyfriend's bashing our front door in repeatedly because you cannot get it together to copy and keep two sets of keys. I said nothing when you practically turned your room into a crackhouse at one point. I can't wait to see her next. I will be even more oblivious-seeming than normal. People like Laundretta make their own downfall so nothing is required of me. But if she does ever fall off a cliff, maybe I won't tread on her fingers but I don't know that I'll be giving her a hand-up either ...
I DO APOLOGIZE. I HAVE BEEN VERY REMISS at visiting anybody's blog of late. I've just been logging on, posting, drifting, logging out. My thoughts are uncollected (apart from here.) Yeah, OK, to put it another way: I've been really antisocial. I promise to try harder next time.... Only please nb "best blogs vi"... I have at least gone some tiny way to updating my links. Anyone who comments tonight I promise to add them (if you're not already there) by tomorrow. How's that for crap old me? Hokey dokey. I've written out part 11 of my own "vulgaridad" ... now I'd better tell it so stay tuned ...
LASTLY: CONTINUING MY POWER-BALLADS THEME,
this is Tina Turner's best-ever track
& it's aptly called
SIMPLY THE BEST
HERE'S A BLOG RECOMMENDATION of the day:

Releasing the inner blinger in me - I have only just - and belatedly - realised that having grandchildren gives me a good excuse to release my inner blinger. So ... we took a trip to Homebase...
