A little fear, touch of money and ever onwards.

“Tell me all your secrets and I’ll tell you most of mine,
They say nobody’s perfect, well that’s really true this time.”

Something that occasionally strikes me as amusing:
I’m a Spider-Man fan. Spiders also happen to be my one big fear, can’t stand them, squeal like a little girl around them. On Monday I was putting the rubbish out, there were several large bags in the garden because Kevin moved out on Sunday, and underneath on of the bags were a frell load of beetles. Such things never used to bother me but I was bare foot and over the past year or so I have developed a fear of being covered in bugs. I put the rubbish out and boiled some water to pour over the bugs, when the first splash hit the ground a spider half the size of my hand(and I don’t like tiny house spiders) moved towards me. The spider got the rest of the boiling water. This event did me no good.

“I met her on a Friday afternoon,
In a neon dayglo pink chiffon satin room.”

“Two is the loneliest number since the number one”

I both love and hate sales, I go into a shop, not going to spend money. I look around and don’t spend money. Yet somehow when I leave I have:

Couplings - Series One(DVD)

“Hey man, this is a beautiful life”

I have not been around a great deal of late but there are those who have my well wishes, more so than usual for the moment.

“Poverty stole your golden shoes but it could not steal your laughter”

I believe there was more but I’m hungry and about to leave (I’ve been starting between 7:30 and 8:00 so I get to leave early) so fare thee well.
