Going Gonzo – Back To School

Thursday, 5th September 2019. 10.58 Everything appears to be back to normal.Louis went back to school yesterday and I went back to work today.

Three showers later …

Going Gonzo – Twix

Friday, 19th July 2019. 06.37 I had a shave last night. That went some way towards alleviating my depression. So, I decided to see what today would bring. My whole inner self is screaming, “FUCK ALL YOU CUNT!” A ray of sunshine reflected off the tiny badge of optimism I was wearing on my lapel. As I emerged from the …

Going Gonzo – Flying Past To Get To Brighton.

Thursday, 4th July 2019. 06.52 “It was a good job I wasn’t trippin’!” Jay said, as the car pulled out in front of us. Jay used to do quite a lot of LSD. We are heading to Gatwick to start a job. Not much of a job, but a job. Tomorrow I’m returning to Bob’s Books in Portobello Road. 07.35 …

Going Gonzo – I Left My Pomade In The Car.

Wednesday, 3rd July 2019. 12.11 I got up. I stuck on a pair of shorts and my Hans Island: karate Tournament t-shirt. Then I took Louis to school for our 08.15 meeting. The bottom line is, we won. The other kid has been expelled but Louis has been asked not to socialise with the group who witnessed it as they …

Going Gonzo – The Crisp Packet Escalation.

Tuesday, 2nd July 2019. 11.05 Thank God for Ray Davies. My first thought when I woke up was suicide. My next thought was “No”. I’m way too selfish for something that mundane. There’s just not enough…..? How can I put it?….. Showmanship. I was half way through the next plan of starting a cult and convincing a load of other …

Going Gonzo – The Sun

Saturday, 20th June 2019. 11.50 I woke up with poison in my throat. By that, I mean, throat infection. It just tastes like poison everytime I swallow. Mixed with the heat of the day, I’m feeling less than comfortable. 13.22 One Corona and two paracetamol later. I feel better. At least, better than I did. 14.56 I’ve sat very still …

Going Gonzo – Unknown Struggle.

Tuesday, 25th June 2019. 06.17 It feels like summer now. It’s raining. The fast train is cancelled so I’ve been forced on to the dreaded loop train. Like being on a bus, it stops everywhere. 08.34 We weren’t late, but we sat in Costa for half an hour and watched the world go by the window.Today already feels like a …

Going Gonzo – Caution! Wet Window Sills

Monday, 3rd June 2019. 09.26 Back at Holmes Terrace. We are all wearing our new logo’d t-shirts. Louis seems to have enjoyed this first sleep in a shed. He has made it into a shrine to dead hip-hop stars, guns and smoking pot. Teenagers! I was never like that……. I was much worse. 11.46 Self-explanatory really. 15.08 Sitting here, on …

Going Gonzo – Wonder Boy

Friday, 26th April 2019. 23.11 Friday nights eh! So far, it’s been successful. I played little RDR2. Sean saw me online so we had a catch up. We laughed about the crazy times. I drank a few Corona’s. Now I’m continuing watching Vexed and smoking a fatty. It’s the little things. I’m not sure I just wrote that. It didn’t …

Going Gonzo – Bank Holiday

Friday, 19th April 2019. 11.41 I’ve had my big sleep. I’ve answered my final email of the week. Now, it’s just about me until Tuesday. I’ll be truthful. I really don’t know what to do with myself. I am currently laying on my bed, listening to Park life. I’ve just hit End Of The Century. I’m dressed. The windows and …
