Oh man, this was so much fun!
One of the best 100 things I've seen yet. I laughed aloud at 13-16. Of course.Now that I've managed to click through to teh Flickr, I can appreciate why you have a codependent relationship with your hair. It is lovely.
Thanks FQ and Heidi! And thanks, PS ... about the hair, and about the list.And gawd, it is just not right how proud I feel to make you laugh when you live in a house with BB, one of the world's great humourists. I was going to say "unsung humourists" but then I figured that actually, BB is like, totally famous an' shit. :)
What PS said. My biggest laugh was from #60 (if only I could have 0.01 metric assload of Lego for every assload of insecurity!), sigh was #97 (having different surnames in the family complicates one's relationship with a stationer by two or three assloads; at the same time, it doesn't matter because occasional efforts to revive postal letter-writing with select friends have been miserable failures).
Teh awesum. Thanks.Velvet ears (Dinah), Boone and Janey (the 2 older ones) send their regards. Dinah is making puppy sleep noises on my lap as I type. Win!
Oh my god. I need to print these comments out so that when she is 12 or 13 and having just the most rotten day, I can show her that she was once termed "one of the world's great humourists"!Right now, of course, she totally knows it.
Dear Xtin, In respect of your point 58., fancy doing something for QUID? It's a ruffian underjournal, filthy sheets. You can read some back issues on the Barque Press website. I like what you say about 'Marzipan.' Have you read it in the context of _Bands Around the Throat_?
Hello, Keston. Heavens, if I'd had any notion of who might be reading my amateurish musings, I might have gone and hidden under the bed instead. I'm much too ignorant ever to have read any poetry in context (no, really -- I'm not being disingenuous here) but I really must get my hands on a Prynne collection and immerse myself properly. I keep browsing editions in Heffers and then putting them back, intimidated.I'd love to write something for QUID. How very exciting. Anything ever described as a "bumper bag of brain brisket" has to be a good thing. I notice that my style is somewhat ... divergent from that which generally appears. Perhaps that is just what the Dr ordered?
I just love this list. I still need to do one of these 100-things things.
Hi Xtin,The Dr. was long ago relieved of his order pad and his budget inhumed under the nearest convenient spot marked X. So you should write, you know, *anything*, or if *anything* doesn't grab you, then please write *anything else*. I'm really glad you'd like to. My email address is on my homepage on the University of Sussex site. Prynne makes everyone feel ignorant. Whenever I feel like a bracing fit of ignorance, I know my resort. I'll send you his latest book if you like.Very best, Kton
I do like!
