Things That Are Going Round My Head [Oct. 20th, 2014|09:59 am]
Tony Grist
1, There was a car outside the house yesterday with a Bulgarian license plate- so maybe that's the nationality of the new neighbours- one of whom accosted me yesterday as I was carrying a microwave to the car (a gift for Odi) and introduced himself as a scrap metal dealer. I noted where he lived. We might eventually have need of him.

2. I have always pretended to prefer Manchester to Liverpool (because it wouldn't do to disrespect one's own city) but now I'm in the process of leaving the North West I can admit to myself and the world that I like Liverpool more. Manchester is dour and heavy-minded; Liverpool is lively. How could it not be with the wind (and the people) blowing in off the Irish Sea?

3. Peter was at Odi's yesterday. He tells Odi he thinks Ailz and I might have done more to keep them together when they had their big bust up. Odi asks him if he'd be keen to return his own daughter to an abusive partner. That shuts him up. I have nothing against him now. Odi seems to have made her peace with him and it's her life. And as Hamlet says to Polonius, "Use every man after his desert, and who should 'scape whipping."

4. I was reading Anne Carson last night. I think she's a great poet but I haven't a clue what she's on about much of the time.

5. When I re-read sections of this blog I find myself skipping the political rants. I find them embarrassing.  Will this stop me continuing to perpetrate them? We'll see.

I have a friend who is a Liverpool supporter so you are in good company there. Why feel embarrassed about your political rants. I find them spot on in general.

That's kind of you.

I suppose the main thing is they date so quickly. In some instances even I've forgotten what particular scandal it was that set me going.

My own ancestry is (whisper it) north eastern.

I'd be most put out if you stopped the political rants! :o)

I like the North East- not that I know it particularly well.

As for the rants I probably won't be able to stop myself.

I like your political rants. Often, I have no idea what you are talking about, but this teaches me something about English politics that I wouldn't know otherwise.

As you know, I am secretly in love with England, and if the right job there opened up for me, I would be across the Pond in a heartbeat. So, it's good to know something about the politics there, just in case that ever happens.

Thank you.

The thing is I look back on them and sometimes I have no idea what I'm talking about either. Politicians and their nefarious doings tend to fade from memory very quicklly.
