NOW THE HEAT OF THE DAY HAS COOLED, legions of smokers congregate on the pavements round the tables to smoke, smoke, smoke ...
I slept in today... finally waking around 3pm nightmaring about my Australian cousin's friends (who were the best crowd of people in the world and they say a man (or a woman) is known by is (or her) friends ... too true. Very true ...) and my "eye" teeth rotten and falling out. In this dream I was so upset and distraught about this ... and then I woke up in this mid-afternoon, fan a-blasting and Amy Winehouse a chirping through my silver new CD player (had been on repeat-play all night ...) ... I didn't feel good. And then I got a letter that nearly made me cry. I don't even wanna write about that until later....
POOR AMY WINEHOUSE, who is probably ahead of Pete Doherty as the tabloids' favourite over here (she has substance and style and, seemingly, a very reportable alcohol-&-drug problem ... was on the front page of The Sun for a reported three-day binge on cocaine, ecstasy, "horse tranquillizer" (ketamine), brandy and whiskey..." that began on 1pm Monday and eventually culminated in an emergency admission to London University Hospital at 1am on Wednesday morning, with Amy pale and shaking (she had been in convulsions) ... and with "the dead eyes of a shark" ... ooer. I sincerely hope the poor girl doesn't kill herself before she has a chance to achieve even greater things because she has one hell of a voice on her. (Why do Jewish girls get the best voices??)
Righto! My time is nearly up so this is all until tomorrow afternoon at earliest. I'm having severe plant problems so all is being repotted as a matter or urgency. Idiot Homebase sold me a mixture of high and low water requirement plants in one arrangement ... eejuts!!
