MyGenie & Nigel

Feeling nostalgic tonight. Rediscovered my U.Genie homepage - as well as my MyGenie homepage - OK not much there in either case - but it brings back memories. I’m delightfully surprised that they’re still there! Not for long though - so I’m told. I speculatively tried Nigel’s page as well - and sure enough - it worked - a tribute to The Doll’s House - boy was he fanatical about that at the time! A few clicks later led me to Arkham - as well as a new set of pages by Nigel called Lazy Llama - with a gallery of pictures galore that also brought memories flooding back! Ah - those were the days …

Friday night and the lights are low.
Looking out for the place to go.
Where they play the right music
Getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king

What can I say? Is there anything that stokes up more memories more than this song …

Life in a Text

It was a particularly depressing bus ride home tonight. Unperturbed by the fracas happening downstairs between the the Bus driver and a passenger who wanted to get on the bus - I simply stared at my mobile phone and wondered if it was possible to summarise my life in a text message. This I did. And only just managed to use up all 160 characters. You can read it by clicking here.

I'm sick of texting

I fought my way through the rush hour
Trying to make it home just for you
I want to make sure that your dinner
Will be waiting for you

From “Superwoman” by Karyn White. When I first heard this song a few years ago on the radio I almost fell off my chair laughing. The lyrics are so cheesy - and my other half used to turn it up really loudly every time it came on - as if to make some sort of point with a massive grin on her face. Now, years later - it’s no laughing matter - I sing it to myself whenever I’m depressed .…
