Running on empty…..

No sleep since 8am Sunday. Spent last night drinking vodka and eating Paracetamol and other tablets – gave up after 16 or so when I realised that if I did die it would only make certain people happy! So just continued drinking the vodka in an attempt to obliterate the pain. Gave myself some new scars instead. So hey ho!

Happy Birthday to Me

It was my birthday yesterday and how did I spend my morning? Attending the cremation of my friend Christine. Not how I wished to start the day. I ended the day the way I started it – alone. Nobody bothered asking if I’d like some company or go for a drink. I don’t remember a time since 2008 when I haven’t spent my birthday on my own. Even before 2008 there were only a handful of times that anyone cared to join me on my birthday.

Yes, I do like my own company and I am somewhat of a loner. Yet some human company at times would be welcome. I sit in my local social club and not one of my “friends” in there ever bothers to come and say hello and sit with me for a few minutes. Yet they are happy to sit with assholes who call them behind their backs.

Yea Gods! I’m starting to sound like Victor Meldrew!

art sex music

Called into local Blackwell Bookstore next to the University. It is a better place than Waterstones – they are the only bookshops we have in Newcastle – apart from a couple of charity bookshops (Oxfam and Amnesty International). Disgraceful state of affairs for a two university city like Newcastle!  Asked if I could reserve a copy of “art sex music” by Cosey Fanni Tutti which is due out tomorrow. Well, they had an advance copy on the shelves which I immediately purchased and they sold it at the price that Amazon have it £10:49 instead of £14:99 – result! Cosey is one of my all time music/performance art people.
