Another girl, in another city.  I’d met her three hours ago.  As we strolled near my hotel I pondered which line I would use – come in for a cup of coffee?  Before I could say a word she pushed the elevator button and marched straight on in.  She reclined on my bed and watched a Korean drama while I had a shower.  I lay beside her and wrapped an arm affectionately around her shoulders.

Brigitte Bardot before she was a crazy old cat woman (Cannes, 1953).  The original Retronaut site seems to have gone so I had to link to this one.  This set of photos reminds me of Tender Is The Night.

Today I went over some papers and realized:

I am free.

Step into my world and have a look around, dear reader.  But don’t remove the plastic sheets from the sofa.  And take your shoes off.  Yeah I know it’s pretentious.  I don’t care.

Imagine that the worst comes to the worst (short of the actual end of the world).  I am hounded out of my job under suspicion of holding offensive (though accurate) beliefs, or by an absurd accusation hurled by Read More
