IT'S A HOT AFTERNOON. Isn't this what they call (post-Partition) a Pakistani summer? I don't remember Septembers ever being this sultry when I was at school! The wasps are buzzing everywhere round melted ice-syruppy bins, sunshine's all a-sparkle from every wingmirror of every car and every fake diamond earring of every fake resident of this area.
Inside the house it is cooler. My furry pet swines are sleeping peacefully. They got really excited last night when I put butter on their wheel (because it was squeaking). Now it spins faster than ever before. During her lifetime it wouldn't surprise me if Spherical actually ran far enough on that wheel to roll it all the way from London in person (and with a little floaty help from the cross-Channel ferries) and all the way back to Mongolia from whence she originated.
The dealer kept me waiting for so long that I took to marking up my legs for helpful-looking vein remnants. Then he did show and with different gear that I was suspicious of because it looks to me like a dark powder mixed with a light one. Anyway I took it and got the hit in my arm for the first time in ... I cannot remember. Woo; it was just like the olden days!
The charity shop has some funky-soulful choices in second hand music these days. My latest find was Whitney Houston remixes. They're quite good. Far far FAR better than anything by Mariah Carey, who of course likes us to think she is the best best best. How many Mariah Carey tunes can you actually remember? Take that figure as X and that's X more than I do!
These two tunes of the day are from the POST I Will Always Love You Whitney, when she got all back to basics or whatever you call it. Actually, I call it better.
1. It's Not Right But It's OK (watch the video; how ANGRILY she acts the words!)
2. My Love is Your Love
oh and I never posted this one up here but if you want a dreadful hardhouse remix of It's Not Right - click here!!
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...
