crash

Five years ago I was living in Paris, my partner had recently told me he had decided to move back to Iceland, he was packing and his family was visiting for the last time. I fell asleep watching BBC choice,

theft

I saw a flat that I liked on Wed. 21st, handed in my references on the 23rd, called after the weekend to check that they had been received, was told that I’d hear something by the end of the week.

Aah, the things one does in order to avoid being publicly labelled “lazy bugger of the week” by the Yankee Blogger.So here is my contribution to his 100 things, 100 bloggers, 100 days project. Can you now put the whip

Oh. My. Goodness. I woke up this morning with an awful taste in my mouth, I went to brush my teeth and I saw my tongue had turned dark brown. Yuk. Yuk yuk yuk – apparently my lungs are starting

You know those moments in Ally McBeal when the energetic music suddenly stops with the sound of the needle scratching the record or, better still, slows down and dies as if the record player has been unplugged? Well, that’s exactly

unsmoke

Over 24 hours without cigarettes (alright, alright, I was asleep for 6 hours, but it’s a major achievement anyway). 6,50 GBP in my wallet that would normally be in the newsagent’s till instead. Can’t feel the health benefits yet, but

dizzy

12 smoke-free (waking) hours. Still have not decided whether I feel up to quitting or not – well, apparently I seem to be able to resist without a fag break for more than one hour. It is quite likely that

refrain

I haven’t smoked for the past 5 hours and 50 minutes (not that I’m counting), and it already feels like a month. My throat has not fully recovered yet from the weekend flu, and as I woke up this morning

silly

I felt much better yesterday afternoon, so I decided to go and get my weekly fix of the RVT. Surprisingly good, with an energetic show from D. E. Experience with new songs (to me at least), less people than usual,

poorly

Stupid summer flu. My throat is sore, my head aches, my bones hurt and I go from shivering to sweating every 15 minutes. It’s going to be a Brighton-less, sex-less, smoke-less, club-less, booze-less Bank Holiday Weekend. Please shoot me now.

Umph. Why is a second date almost never as good as the first one?

Everything’s packed, my room is clean and in about one hour I’m temporarily moving in with G. in *finger down throat* Streatham, until we get our new place. As usual, I do not feel nostalgic at all about leaving a

2nd date with J. tonight. A movie date (his idea). When I suggest a cinema date it either means that I can’t wait to get my hands all over someone, or that I can’t be bothered to sustain a meaningful

ruthless

We saw a flat that we liked last night and made an offer that was accepted. I’ll probably spend the morning filling in the reference form and chasing people across Europe to let them know that they might be contacted

Well, hello Mr Chin! Hello Upper Lip! Hadn’t seen you in ages. Sorry about the sudden exposure, I just needed a more conservative look for a couple of appointments today (job- and flat-wise). See ya soon – do you think

Stuff my friends told me recently: Friend #1: I recently read this quote attributed to Dorothy Parker: “You know, she speaks eighteen languages. And she can’t say `No’ in any of them.” – and I immediately thought of you. Friend

cruel

I am absolutely appalled that scientists need to use poor innocent mice to conduct experiments that may very well take place in any gay club in London with hundreds of willing, consenting people paying (literally) through their nose to take

It took me two hours to get home from Cricklewood as my eyes had exploded overnight and I could not put my contact lenses back in, so I could not see a thing and I kept getting on the wrong

I have just realized that I’ve slept alone only three nights in the past nine days. Excuse me while I go dye that virginal white dress a more appropriate shade of soiled greyish-brown. Update: (Monday Aug. 19th) – Make it

I have another date with J. next Thursday. He called today to ask me out and I could not believe my ears. I’m quite excited about it, I am going to save myself for him, so I’ll just cancel all

I’ve always had a thing for the Tetris “L” block. Now I know why.

While flathunting with G. this afternoon (from the comfort of a very sunny Brokwell park), we spotted an ad for a place in Vauxhall. He called to enquire and got the address, I looked it up in my A to

You might be a Bitful reader and have met me, and if you see me at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern on Sunday afternoon with a man, do come and say hallo, but please refrain from saying to him “Oh, you

I might have temporarily solved the cash problem: I found a new tenant for the room I am leaving at the end of the month, and he wants it starting from tomorrow. As I was going anyway to spend a

Thanks to Jonathan, I have finally understood why my search for Mr Right has not given any results yet. Now that I know the rules I’ll be saving myself some heartache. If only I could silence the useless little voice

I am putting much more energy into my job search (read: I am actually job hunting rather than thinking about maybe doing it tomorrow). The reason? Money is running very low, goodness knows when the Italian company I’m freelancing for

Date update: Met J. at The Yard for a couple of drinks. Jaw-dropping handsome. Excellent, lively, stimulating conversation, lots of eye contact and smiling. Went for a quick, cheap dinner at the Stockpot. More animated discussion, that we both cranked

Off to meet J. – Yes, the guy from the drunken cradlesnatching episode. He called last night asking me out tonight for a drink, and I happily accepted. We had to tell each other what we’ll be wearing, in order
