    • Where did inspiration hit?
      • When I was 16 I wrote a song on the toilet. I'm not a singer or a song-writer, this just came to me. I cooked the whole thing up while sitting on the loo and during the subsequent ten minutes. I wrote it down, memorised it, I now perform it for friends and family on request. The song is called Trailer Trash and is the sad story of a battered wife with twenty-five children.

        Crazy Face

        Indeed! I told an outwardly racist friend to move along swiftly after a particularly outrageous comment. I always had a habit of befriending the underdog, this colleague was being picked on at my new place of work, so I made a point of befriending her. I found out why eventually; her views were idiotic, her mannerisms grating, her intelligence non-existent.

        By the time I discovered her true personality we were quite good friends. I suspect she's somewhat simple bordering on autistic so I never imagined cutting her off, until her final offense.

        She made a comment I'd be ashamed to share and I emailed her a succinct severence. She responded with a barage of nonsensical abuse, that made the whole thing easier, I often rejoice at her absense from my life.

    • Me + 10...
      • Who the hell knows! Not me.


        Chaos

        One of the things I love about life is I don't know where it will take me. I could be a mother and a wife, I could be living by a beach, I could be in exactly the same situation I am now, although I doubt it, I get bored as a rule every three years. I go for violent shake ups to life; I'll get cabin fever and rush off to the furthest away place. Or I could completely calm down and be part of a family. Ironically, that would be the most drastic of changes.

        Cash

        Anyone who has an upper limit to the amount of money he could put to good use lacks imagination, as does anyone who lives within their means.

        I could use all the money in existence; giving to friends, working with charities, buying properties, drinking away any excess.

      • Take the world, shake and stir it and that's what I got goin' o-on


        Demolition

        I packed up, bought a coach ticket and hauled ass out of my hometown. I've done it twice, I'll probably do it again. I like to 'take the world shaken and stirred'. I like things haphazzard, I want to know my time on Earth isn't mapped out, set in stone or pre-determined. I want to be able to go anywhere and do anything, even if I go nowhere or do nothing again. I need options, outs, exits. I'm flawed, I'm growing, learning, developing, changing; my life has to match. If I feel trapped by or bored of a place I leave it and head to pastures new. I like to 'break down these old four walls and build them right from the ground.'
