Forgetting about all of the shit that's going on at the moment, I never got around to writing about what I did yesterday. Which was go to Southampton, and buy my bike gear.
I was originally going to just look at the stuff they had, try it on, get a feel for sizing, all that stuff.
But then I fell in love with a jacket because it fit quite well, and did just about everything I was looking for.
I'd post a picture but I haven't got around to taking one yet, and it's a lot of bother to put it on just for a photo. When I take one though, you'll know about it. I look like I'm really tiny inside it. Guess I don't mind as much if I get fatter and fatter anymore, because I'll just look scarier as I go along.
I managed to keep just about inside of my budget.. By just about, I mean that I went over because I spent a lot on my gloves. I spent the same amount on my gloves as I did on the trousers (which were on sale). I spent more on the gloves because I figure I can live without my legs but if I fuck up my hands, I'm lost, seeing as all I seem to care about these days is writing and painting shit.
So I have damn sexy warm gloves, decent trousers and a fab jacket.
Seriously, all I need now is the freaking bike. I should have my money by Friday, all being well. Then it's just a case of my friend fixing the fuck up his bike. Actually really pissed that he fucked it up now. Half a mind to just give him the money to fix it for my own selfish reasons.
And like I said the other day ( I think, I don't remember if I pout it in or not) here is the goat/fish/weird thing that I have done in art this week - the one thing in my book that I actually like so far. It's finished, but only because I just don't have the time to sort it out because the deadline is coming up and I'm not ready. The top bit is good. But you can tell that I rushed the lower half.
It's still good no matter what. And I don't mind admitting it. I know when my work is up to scratch and when it isn't. I'm not lying when I say that the rest of the stuff in my book isn't good. It's mostly 'okay' but I haven't got anything that's worth anything in there at the moment.
Hopefully I'll have the extra time that I need soon so that I can start making all of my work a better standard.
And this is such a nicer post than the last.
