author of strange, dark fictions


Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey

“Funny old business, time. It delights in frustrating your plans.” – 7th Doctor.

“They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.” – Andy Warhol.

“Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.” – Douglas Adams.

Nearly 34… death closing in… must achieve more

Or something along those lines. Come midnight, I’ll have aged another year, which means plenty of self-examination (due to the closeness of the dates, I tend to leave my New Year self-scrutiny until now). As ever, it comes down to ‘must try harder’…

We’ll see what happens. If there’s one thing I should do this year, it’s be more pro-active. Simple to say, but ennui can be difficult to cast aside when it takes hold. See Andy Warhol, above, for the obvious solution – here’s hoping a January push in the areas I’d like to improve on can define the year. It’s been a promising fortnight, to be honest, so there’s hope yet.

But in the meantime, I’m getting ready to be whisked away to a mystery restaurant for a mystery dinner. See you when I’m thirty-four.

    You’re officially older than Jesus now. Congratulations!

    Hope the mystery dinner was lovely, and I raised a glass in your direction tonight. Cheers!
