cheer up, cheer up

Go late-night shopping at the Debenhams sale, force the assistants to open the closed changing rooms, buy improbable trousers vastly reduced in price. Spend an evening talking story structure and sexual frustration with a friend. Pull out the gigantic Beardsley book from its structural position on the bookshelf, sod the pile of comics behind. Perve gently at erotic bookplates. Stroke the Monsoon sale, buy a 70% reduced cardigan that won't be washable (too many beads) and a black horn bowl for libations. Use up the last of my calm blue deep moisturising body paint. Go blow £12 on Strawberry vodka, drink beer called Export Hell and delete everything work-related on the home computer (more room! more room!). Go to Red Star for gyoza and yaki soba, even though it's monday. Plan for tea + booze + games for Friday. Walk bareheaded in the rain, cold notwithstanding. Find hope in the IRC bible, dress up Jesus as Satan, then (to be fair) dress up Satan as Jesus. Abuse father's christmas present (two frightening owls and a pair of socks) to win tickets to an interesting gig. Look through the diary of Chihuly installations. Buy a packet of misshapes from Thorntons and then leave them in scent-range, on the desk at work. Be amused by the concept of The Queer Real Ale Guide. Cheer up, Cheer up.

erotic bookplates
I love "frolicking in a library", the way his cock seems to be thrusting out of a boiling sea of pubic hair works really well and their expressions are just right.

Re: erotic bookplates
There are some real beauties in there; I especially like "woman with nipple being nibbled by bird" and "owl looks on", unsurprisingly.

Occasionally we get books into the (Oxfam) bookshop where I work with quite lovely bookplates; another argument for me getting that digital camera, I suppose.

defining the JF in Oxford as a real ale pub is a mite bizarre, too
... in my book, three ales does not a real ale pub make. It does have beams, and an unfriendly atmosphere, I suppose.

Mostly that site's a bit of a wasted opportunity. I was hoping for guides to the gayest ales, lesbian beergut etiquette, tips for spotting whether your local real-ale pub was infested with the closety and bi-curious, personals from bisexuals who are heavy-ly into real ale, at which point during your gender transitioning you should switch from jars to straights, that sort of thing.

I probably shoudl have just described it, not linked to it.

that sounds like a book proposal to me!

hmmm.

Would it have a broad enough audience, though? I suppose if we're extending it to the "bi-curious", that's *just about* everyone (depending on drunkenness and who's on offer) ...

it's all just a giddy whirl ...
It's more of a five-day summary, really. Of only the good things.

Bookplates Are Fab...
That is one louche owl! I quite like the shadowy whipping woman, too, and the extravaganza of corkscrew pubes in the 'library'.
-Brightened up a grotty day!

"improbable trousers" there is beauty in those words, deep deep beauty.

improbable trousers
they're usually the only ones that fit me.
