sunny street corner morning

Walking from my bike to the office this morning I saw a man on the street-corner with beautiful, expensive hair, fiddling with a pair of beautiful, expensive sunglasses. As I walked past (perhaps startled by my unfashionable red jeans) he looked up and smiled, just long enough for me to see that he'd probably been getting laid for years because (apart from the blue-blue eyes and the sunbed tan) he looked rather like David Bowie. As I passed him I noticed he was wearing coconut oil, smiled and said "coconuts" then glanced across the road to check for bicycles just as a younger guy with curly dark brown hair and a beard noticed my green hair and grinned. Pass it on.

I've been filmed for a documentary and I didn't even notice according to my friend Jason who saw me on a money programme on a major channel last weekend; apparently (during a sequence of atmosphere shots) my discontented face fills the screen while some visiting professor at St Hughes waffles on about poverty. That's me in my place.

And shhh! I know we're not supposed to reveal until next Fri but Mitzi (Flygirl) has contributed a panel to the Picky Picky Game!

Stolen Images...
I once saw a similar documentary-type film, where crowds were shown milling along, while voiceover speculated about evil in society, the existence of...the Devil himself!- upon which a closeup of a widely (wickedly?) grinning 'Albert the Painter', a good-natured maintenance bod at the theatre appeared.He never saw the thing himself, but people were mocking his satanic majesty for weeks.

Re: Stolen Images...
Jason couldn't believe no-one had told me already, but I supposed my mates don't watch money programmes much. At least I have an extra reason for why people are staring at me in the street :)

The face of our lumpenproletariat!
Well done comrade! Now sue them for stealing your image/soul. ;-p


re: coconut sex ... sure, but were those years of 'the nasty' any good - that's the question. :-)

I'm not sure, but I think I've accidentally sent you the same comic book twice now. Whoops. Well, you can give the spare one to your mum. I sent along a few notes on what I thought of "We Are Obstinate...", as well.
