Am tempted to post the lyrics to this song, it's just so very perfect.
Strange day. I'm coming into one of my depressive spells (note to self, pick up tablets on Monday) so all I really wanted to do was lie around and drink coffee, but I had to go and join my family for the evening to celebrate youngest sister E's birthday at Cafe Rouge in Westbourne. Luckily it was brief, since other sister T is in whelp and grouchier than usual - none of us thought that was even possible, but apparently it is. Also she and Mum entertained us by discussing childbirth over dinner while sister E (who feels like I do about reproduction) and I made puke faces at each other over the bread rolls. T didn't notice, she was too busy complaining about the smell of garlic and cooing over the screeching snotgoblin some other patrons had thoughtfully brought in with them.
That sound you hear is my Fallopian tubes spontaneously tying themselves...
Odd random conversations. On the way over to Mum's with the dogs, I stopped to buy sister E a box of fudge from a little stall selling it outside M&S - the bloke on the stall admired Spike when he jumped up, and that led into a long conversation with him and his partner (the vibe I got was that of more than just a business partner, but who knows) about their new Vizsla puppy, which they're feeding raw... the partner handed off the box wrapping to the first guy and came round to squee over Squish and discuss organic butchers, offal and RMBs with me instead. The puppy's named Candy because they make their living selling fudge - hope I get to meet her some time.
And later, on the way home from Mum's with the dogs, stopped to chat to a friend on the Castlepoint car park maintenance crew, and ended up discussing BDSM and kinky sex at 2am in the car park. (Discussing, not having - sorry to disappoint, but I did have the dogs with me and he was on the clock...) Told him when and where to find the Bournemouth Munch, though - with a bit of luck he'll come along to the next one.
Today I owe thanks to ulva
for cheering me up, and especially to topbit
for kindness above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you.( And now I'm going to be all self indulgent and post the lyrics to that song )
Edit: Listen to it yourself, it's fuckin' great: http://s62.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=33IQT5J5IOTGB1YHHOT6HG2M68
