Funny? Like Ha Ha Funny?

It seems that if anyone did get my free ticket, they couldn't be bothered to email me or some backward spaz without internet got it (or an old person). Either that or it's still sitting there, all useless and forlorn.

The internet 'youth work' I'm carrying out it spreading far and wide, reaching here and here and even here. Bizarre but a nice distraction from the fact I have a lot of work to do and that Marie (my wife) is in hospital in Cyprus after fainting. This is a handy distraction indeed from crying a lot and worrying whether she'll be ok. I just spoke to her and it seems she'll be fine but as soon as I put the phone down I just had to have a cry. The thought of her alone in a foreign hospital bed kills me.

*Ouch* Can we move on?

Perhaps to here and yet another addition to my list of links, this is the blog of uber-talented artist Rich who comments here now and then and is something of an understated genius.

*Ouch* That'll be the worry coming back. I better go.


  1. Rats on your random act of kindness (the ticket). What does it say, if anything?

    Did someone find it, thoroughly enjoy it, and just not have the class to follow through on your request?

    Did an orphan, fresh from having her amputated legs dressed at the dirty clinic down that grimy, rat-infested alley find it, and have her first exposure to theatre, only to die of infection after the first act?

    Did a deranged Cambridge professor, who disappeared three years ago after realising there was nothing useful left for him to learn, and has wandered London in a delusional state ever since find it, and wipe his arse with it?

    These are the questions which demand answers.

  2. Oh man.... that is just the worst word ever.

    Ick ick ick ick ick ick.

  3. And I do hope Marie is back into the swing of things soon. Yes, it is very scary being in a foreign hospital without your family (speaking from experience), but I'm sure she is in very good hands.

    Hug her tightly when she returns.

  4. i meant he was kind about me. the thing with the ticket was pointless. some people at the barbican don't even know how to sell their unwanted tickets, never mind pick one up off the floor. i once witnessed a woman trying to offload her unwanted ticket to the queue of people who were waiting to pick up the tickets they'd paid for in advance! WE HAD ALREADY PAID FOR THEM, WHY WOULD WE WANT TO BUY YOUR TICKET!! GO TO THE QUEUE FOR PEOPLE WITHOUT TICKETS!!!

  5. I tried this Rich and failed so I thought I'd leave it as a social experiment. I took a picture of it on my phone as evidence but as takers.

  6. You know, I have to say, you are actually growing on me. You're not half as bad as I first thought. Therefore I apologise for judging you. I was wrong. :)

  7. Fair enough. Now I must depart. Another three hours of essay writing await me in the morning.

  8. I'm sorry about your wife, dude. Hope she gets better and recovers.

  9. So am I. Best for me not to linger on it and concentrate on writing letters to agents and listening to Therapy? now that reminds me of being 16/17 again.


  10. Agree with Jodi...Yucky word, Man!

    Hope Marie is feeling better soon. Can you call her? Hope so.

    It's nice we have all made peace. I was only defending you, Daniel, as a long-time reader I adore you and respect you. I hope Knox isn't too angry with me going to bat for a friend. I'm sure he would do the same for his friends as well.

  12. Hey Daniel
    Firstly - peopel in London suck as being given things for free - they always think that there is a catch. I, having grown up in SA and not here, LOVE free stuff so anything free shove in my direction and I promise not to feel guilty about it.
    Secondly - I REALLY hope that your loved one is OK - I know all about feeling helpless when one is sick overseas.
    Thirdly - there is so much love goin' on here I am about to burst!

  13. Hope your wife feels better. Although she is a hospital in a foreign country it's the best place she could possible be in at that time. Thank's for posting on my blog too. Thought i'd return the favour :). All the best.
