1) Teacher’s whisky is £11 in Morrison’s. 28 units. Oh dear, Puritans. Oh dear indeed. Clan McGregor is £11 and some pennies. I’ll get some tomorrow. Or maybe I’ll visit Lidl for Ben Bracken and some ‘My Lidl Pony’ burgers. I’m not going to Smoky-Drinky in this weather. That cracked rib has only just stopped hurting.
2) The heating is fixed thanks to Friendly Local Cash-accepting Plumber. Replacing the fan did the trick. So I still don’t have a condensing boiler and the fan heaters can go back into storage.
3) I am not working tomorrow. Boss has hurt her back. I consider it rude and most improper to ask how a young and attractive woman came to have hurt her back. Instead I rely on my filthy imagination to fill in the details. It’s probably much more interesting than reality anyway. So I am working Sunday afternoon instead. Doesn’t matter, I have whisky for tonight and the prospect of saving it for tomorrow night was always a slim one. Now I don’t have to exercise self-control. Excellent. I could never understand those who want to control others. I’m not even interested in controlling me.
4) Poundland have Goblin tinned stewed steak and it’s exactly as I remember it. Looks like dog food, smells like dog food, heat it up and it magically turns into chunks in gravy and it’s as salty as in the old days. Lovely. The Health Nazis would swoon at the sight of it and die if they tasted it. Must get more before it’s banned.
5) That gum you like is going to come back in style.
6) Signed copy of ‘Samuel’s Girl’ to the first one who tells me where no. 5 comes from. Might not be in the post for a week, mind. I’m still on double shifts so far.
And now, lathes and genitalworms, it is time for me to take leave of this world for a short time and enter the sanity of whisky oblivion accompanied by a film of horribleness called, this evening, ‘night watch’.
It’s in Russian. I might not bother with the dubbed version because it’s not likely to matter much anyway.
I’ll try to bring a bit of sanity back with me this time, but it’s a drop in the ocean these days.
