A Rowing Machine and an Italian Job

Mr bridger

Oh jolly buggery, the no smoking wave of puritanism that struck me over the new year has ventured into the sodden depths of failure. To be honest I was struck by the fact I actually didn’t want to stop, I care not for my health as I don’t plan to die boringly, in fact I plan to eventually explode and due to this I don’t care for a spot of respiratory neglect.

I like Mr Bridger, played by Noel Coward in the film ‘the Italian job’, he, despite being a gangster, is in fact a gentleman. I don’t mind gangsters with manners and principles, especially those willing to aid in the economy, he shows a personal patriotism and honour that we find obsolete these days. No thanks to governments demanding to do everything themselves, personal nous has dissipated into oblivion and people no longer do their bit for society, I, for one, am one of them and I blame nationalisation, not entirely but to the current extent, broadly speaking..i dislike it.

Anyhow, my sleeping pattern is backwards, so I have been getting up at 3pm. I have spent countless evenings (well 2) reading war and peace until 6 am and to be frank its time to indulge in the sleeping pills.

I was contemplating today the idea of buying a rowing machine, I can’t be arsed trekking or traveling in any form to a place ridden with exercise freaks and shall if possible avoid it, the gym is just so, well it’s not cool with its customers in plastic clothing, all openly being vain, simply because they lack the imagination to have a hobby, well, that isn’t fair as I seek the rowing machine, but it’s that air of competitiveness venturing on the anal (whatever that means specifically I don’t no (in this context) but you know roughly and it fits well).

As you can see this is bordering on a rant and frankly I’m literally scraping the bottom of the pot of my mind to find something to say, I know upon writing this blog it turns the flywheel in my head, the momentum to scribble more will be unleashed and I can start on one of my projects. Now that I’m in full swing I’ll depart and hop off to write something ingenious.

Oh yeh, almost forgot..war and peace is brilliant, I will get to it’s end before I explode I assure you – until then a review is impossible.

Catcha later

Resolution and Polar Exploration

Good evening occasional followers who do -it would seem- follow me, following as i travel from year to year as I did the day prior, as spectacularly as ever, leaving memory behind along the famous lanes of Liverpool.
My first resolution has hopped in to fruition without an issue, I have temporarily given up smoking, at least, that is, until I find myself rich, only then and then only, may I pick up another cigarette (honest).
The coming year then is an opportunity to build upon the last, ever growing closer to finding myself on a pedestal of might and glory and wealth and pleasure. Also this year I plan to apply accomplishment to all these goals. Being what one calls a “libertine” (for want of a better description) is all very dandy and well- but, what is the point in living so gloriously if only to be witnessed by a few. A theatre without an audience is a cage full of monkeys. Therefore I pledge to place an achievement upon the year 2010, building a “stage” so glorious as to eventually have me thrust into greatness with my massive hat. ;-).
Me and a few chums in the pub have decided that the only place worth visiting which may induce even a hint of worthy conversation and general experience equal to an apprenticeship in “wise man-ness” has to be the Arctic. The thought of possibly being gobbled by polar bears and whizzing about on a snow mobile, it has to be said; renders one somewhat exited. This year shall be devoted to nothing but the challenge of adventure, hopefully i’ll profit from it and not be eaten to death, but who knows, it would be curious to be remembered as the madman who was eaten by a polar bear but for the sake of practicality let’s just hope I remain alive.

Anyhow, enough of me and I need a cup of tea anyway, so i’ll love you for now and tatty bye
