What"s strange is that I think this is the first time I’ve ever written about myself ! Must fight the need to make myself look good!
If who I am can be determined by the Frequently Asked Questions then “Sweet Jesus what the hell are you doing now?” would be the winner. I’m restless and hungry most of the time.
If I was on the yellow brick road I’d be asking the Wizard for patience.
My number one son is “Wisdom” and my number one daughter is “Wonder” and my wife is the one who makes me want to be better (still raging with Hollywood for stealing that line!) She is the one I admire the most.
I live with some constants, most of which are conflicts: control and freedom, business and art, anxiety and confidence, creativity and boredom, planning and flowing. But then again, I reckon we all do, just some of us are better actors than others. So I try not to act as much any more.
I love people, new ones most of all, but I need to exclude the ones that park in the disability parking bays, particularly outside their Gyms, they’re worse than Mondays.
I hate Traffic lights that beep, they remind me of critical illness, apologies to the blind. I love tolerance and need more of it but hate political correctness, it’s an excuse for inaction.
I sometimes look at my watch a few times before I remember to actually read the time. I panic at the supermarket that I’m not packing the groceries fast enough, no matter how many times I try to be cool and even though I like to think that I’m unpredictable, quirky, individual and different, I still buy the packets of biscuits that say 100% extra free, despite the fact the pack has been saying that for the last ten years! But to all those advertisers and markeeters I just want to say this, having an odd number of aisles in your supermarket doesn’t work on me ! I never travel the last aisle twice ! So there! I am an individual !
I design and I write but not for a living, its the only time I forget to eat and
giggling incontinence is one of the worlds great wonders.
If I really want to watch something on TV I do it standing up, with a screwdriver in my hand. It works, the wife assumes I’m in transit from one chore to the next, well it did before I posted this !
Bollix but I can be a thick fucker sometimes!
