Cans of coke drunk today: 3 (good)
Items of clothing bought: 2 (bad)
Books bought: 4 (bad)
Times listened to new Oysterband CD: 3 (v good)
Pointless purchases for misplaced reasons of nostalgia: 1 (fab)
So I overcame my fear of being pilloried by the moral majority and bought a Fab, despite the fact that they're made by the Evil Baby-Killing Chocolate Empire, because I had fond memories of Fabs and I needed cheering up (again). But it was minging, and it did NOT taste of raspberry, but rather of faintly dental ick; and it did NOT have chocolate on. I felt utterly cheated.

The clothes were another couple of strappy tops, because wearing clothes with armpit-covering fabric is just too grim in this heat. One of them is cornflower blue; the other is lime green with pink gauze over the top (resulting in something which probably resembles octarine).
I keep wanting to wear more non-black clothes, so I buy them and wear them once and then they never get washed because I only ever seem to get round to doing washes of black (or at least dark) clothes. Not that I'm very good at getting round to doing the washing anyway
, which is why I have so many black clothes in the first place. ("Out of clean knickers... buy new ones!")

This has just amused me immensely at work. I suspect addedentry
may also enjoy it, for different reasons. ( Collapse )

The sky is an evil-looking hazy grey, but I can't smell thunder yet. We really
need a storm. "But there is no water." ... Reading the inlay notes of my current listening material, I discovered that their name translates roughly as "Without knowledge of coolness". How appropriate.
