The Quicksands of Time


Actually, the last post was a lie. I don’t know what is wrong with me – can’t concentrate, can’t get anything done, feel like I am stuck in goo and can’t move, worried about lots of things, made my mother cry today by telling her to ‘stop shooting her mouth off’, then I cried. I think I have got Januaryitis. I hate everything and feel exhausted. Now I know how canoe-man felt. But I shall rise above it – somehow. I need to do that thing where you stand in front of the mirror and say: you can do it, you are great or some other such nonsense. Bah! January! I hate it all. Just going off to slap myself round the face and give myself a swift kick to the head – that should work.

In the meantime – if anyone else is suffering from a similar malaise then watch this – it is guaranteed to cheer you up. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you………The Rah Band with Clouds Across The Moon. The rather louche looking lady singing is the wife of the man in the emergency space blanket bacofoil boilersuit and baseball cap who wrote the song. In the words of Andre Previn – “I’d say it’s one of the worst pop video’s of all time” (apart from Fade to Grey by Visage of course).

Every time it came on Top of the Pops when I was young me and my best friend Claudia used to point and say “ughhhh, she’s a dirty prossy”. I’m sure she is very nice really.

That’s better – and if that didn’t work then this definitely will (powers)…..
