FIRST

Sticker for TVOR.

I am lying in bed listening to swallows skirling outside and my children (plus another, who has joined by FaceTime) building houses in the next room. I would pay about £15 for someone to bring me a cup of tea.

FOURTH!

Ah well, never mind. Time for breakfast.

I'm just up. I have a headache. The Lens are playing a noisy space game based on an imaginary film they claim to have just been watching.

Time for breakfast

What you got?

Dubris - 18 May 2019 09:34:31 (#7 of 2035)

Whereas I have coffee and half a grapefruit, with the sound of Radio 3.

And a meaningless void of loneliness at the heart of my existence, obviously.

Ricolas - 18 May 2019 09:37:51 (#8 of 2035)

Word.

Eighth

Ricolas - 18 May 2019 09:38:45 (#9 of 2035)

I have not heard from my chum about whether I am stepping in for him tonight to sing Bach, so I might go to the shop to forage for breakfast, or possibly visit the greasy spoon...

Just to raise the level of frivolity, a friend who was suffering from what he thought was a chest infection went to his GP and was found to have leukaemia. He's on Chemo and has been given a 10% chance of getting through it all. This has all happened in less than a week.

I think your grapefruit is half full, Duns.

Sabacious - 18 May 2019 09:41:07 (#11 of 2035)

My immediate future should involve greasy spoon but is instead a 5th birthday party. I hope there will be vodka.

Dubris - 18 May 2019 09:44:18 (#12 of 2035)

Blimey - to both Sab's posts.

Ricolas - 18 May 2019 09:45:55 (#13 of 2035)

The vodka is, on balance, unlikely. Although you may not be the only adult there wanting it.

And I am sorry to hear about your friend. That is a hell of a blow.

Rendered - 18 May 2019 09:47:14 (#14 of 2035)

Jesus, Sab, that's awful.

Rendered - 18 May 2019 09:49:43 (#15 of 2035)

On a much lighter note, I can't be the only one who always reads the US treasury secretary's name as Steven Munchkin. Every single time.

goldfinch - 18 May 2019 09:49:45 (#16 of 2035)

Your poor friend, Sab. How awful.

Sabacious - 18 May 2019 09:51:23 (#17 of 2035)

It is a bit grim.

Meanwhile I enjoyed this from Jeremy Hardy's memorial service:

"The day ended with Katie [Jeremy's wife] herself, reading a letter to Jeremy, talking of the loss felt by her, and by Jeremy’s daughter Betty, and by the outpouring of public grief after his death. “You became Saint Jeremy,” said Katie. “I’d been living with a saint, albeit one that said ‘c***’ a lot.” "

I can't be the only one who always reads the US treasury secretary's name as Steven Munchkin. Every single time

Yep. Every. Single. Time.

That’s awful about your friend, Sab.

helenskywalker - 18 May 2019 09:58:15 (#19 of 2035)

Fuck, your poor friend, Sab.

Dubris - 18 May 2019 10:04:38 (#20 of 2035)

A well-placed comma there.
