‘People Hold On’ – Coldcut

London was odd in retrospect.

I mean, it was good, and very educational, once you get over the feeling that you are very insignificant in the universe’s little scheme of things.  Then you go through a phase of Demoralisation Lethargy, which oddly gives way to Thirst For Universal Domination Mode and then the Realisation Catharsis.

Mmm.  Boring.

Anyway.  It’s not connected with London or anything, so I don’t know why I’m mentioning it now, but Amy Neat (now back on very good terms with me) has been telling people that I am the only example she has come across in her life as a Truly Perfect Human Being.  She says she really believes me to be a God-like figure; she says she thinks I am ‘at one with the universe, totally and utterly’.  This is, of course, very flattering.  What else can one say?  I only wish it were true.

‘Oops Upside your Head’ – Snap!

Fergie rang me and we won’t be going out this week, which is a bugger.

And, god, I still want to see Audrey.  She never rang me, as promised, so I reckon it’s up to me to get in touch.

Peter Conti rang also.  He’s been thanking me for the TS notes I lent him as they were all directly focussed towards the exam he had yesterday.  He wants to come over and meet Flash at the weekend.  This’ll be very interesting; combining our three different senses of humour.  Maybe we could even write a little something.

Well, we’ll see.
