It's Monday Morning Folks and I am hoping that this week is better than last....a strange week of incredible HIGHS....which I can't share with you yet and lots of LOWS...mostly this stinking "won't go away" cold and the monotony of making the same card over and over again. Your bloggy buddy has had her "OH WOE IS ME" hat on and was feeling rather sorry for herself and that ain't like me at all. To be honest I ain't much good at doing miserable and usually find something to lift my spirits and make me smile....and what was the magic potion I hear you ask.
Went off to bed early last night with a book that my sister gave me for my birthday " At my Mother's Knee and other low joints" by Paul O'Grady aka Lily Savage....now you either love him or loathe him but I have always admired his quick wit and ability to come up with that stunning one liner just at the right time. So I snuggled down....watching the blizzard outside...Buddy was fast asleep and snoring.....and started to read.....let me tell you I couldn't wait to get to the next page....it was just like sitting in a comfy armchair in front of a roaring fire and someone telling you their life story and I could even hear his voice as I soaked up each word....absolutely rivetting and very funny.
Glanced at the bedside clock....ye gods...it's 2.30am....and I am at the stage I need to go in search of matchsticks....can't wait to continue the rest of the story tonight.....but I must share with you one little anecdote that had me rocking with laughter.
He makes no secret of the fact that's he's GAY and when he first moved to London as a young man about 19....he started to frequent GAY CLUBS.....where the old queens would buy the young guys drinks and the unspoken rule was that they would expect "you know what" in return. Paul was unaware of this and had been gaily accepting drinks all evening but as he was leaving...one particular old queen shouted out..."Hey I bought you a drink....you owe me a *****" and here was the reply
Paul.....Hey mate it would take more than a half of cider.
Queen.....What would it take then....ten bob.
Paul....No matey....more like a frigging general anaethestic......
Cold no better this morning...need to go to pharmacy and get some stuff to relief this stuffed up feeling..my head feels like it is gonna burst but I am soldiering on......the cards are finished and I am just completing the inserts and personalisation now......nearly there and then I am gonna sleep for a week....catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxxx
