Going Gonzo – Pretending To Be Well.

Tuesday, 29th October 2019. 17.21 I live in a world where I have to beg for a doctors appointment. Sorry. That’s a lie. I live in a world where, even if I beg, I don’t get a doctors appointment. That’s karma for you. Anyway, I’m back to feeling like death. I’m sure there is a lesson to be learnt but …

Going Gonzo – Used To Be Cool.

Tuesday, 24th S3ptember 2019. 10.59 I can’t remember the last time I stood outside a pub and waited for it to open. It’s probably because you can get a drink at nine in the morning in Staines. Anyway, that’s what I’m doing. Standing outside the Leicester Arms, on the corner of Glasshouse Street. 11.06 The barman was slightly surprised to …

Going Gonzo – Endless

Thursday, 22nd August 2019. 17.28 This latest bout of limbo seems endless. I’m just trying to keep my morale up. I am definitely a disgusting wreck of a man though. I’m not feeling healthy but I don’t care enough to do anything about it. Apart from that, I’ve had a couple of days work this week and discussed Louis’ “after …

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 – I Think I’d Be Good For You And You’d Be Good For Me.

Thurday, 23rd May 2019. 16.53 As some of you may know. I have started the long and exciting task of turning “Journal Of A Desperate Man” into a novel. The main problem I am having is naming the main character. It seems like a simple task but, it’s amazingly hard. Such a small thing. Naming the desperate man?!?! Who would …

Going Gonzo – I’m a lot like you, so please, Hello, I’m here, I’m waiting.

Friday, 17th May 2019. 06.31 It all feels very familiar. Like a warm blanket. The six twenty nine train to Waterloo. Coffee by the little fella at the station. Headphones,…… Nicey. 11.46 Just to make it really like the old days, we had MaccyD’s. It’s like I’d never left. 13.37 Onwards to London Wall. A little job which I was …

Going Gonzo – Shower Of Shit

Tuesday, 23rd April 2019. 20.24 Easy day. Normal day. In fact, kinda boring. Wednesday, 24th April 2019. 11.16 My whole plan for today went wrong. I had every engineer over at a job in a prison. They all got past the gate. Then they were told that they had no works escorts. In a blur, we had to find something …

Going Gonzo – No More Of That Talk.

Friday, 5th April 2019. 09.59 “No more of that talk. “ “Or I’ll put the leeches on you.” Exactly right. That’s the talking to I just gave myself about being such a doom monger. After all, it is Friday. I should find something to enjoy. No. Not drugs. Something wholesome, creative,……..? I say this every weekend. So, by rights, it …

The Book Of Hate #8

Tuesday, 3rd October, 2017. 06.01 There is no reason for me to be at the train station this early. I just couldn’t sleep. At least I made coffee and managed to park my car without paying for it. All I can say is, I better get a Fucking seat! 06.09 Seated. Fuck-a-doodle-do! 06.47 Almost in now. I’m dying for a …

The Book Of Hate #7

Saturday, 23rd September, 2017. 05.43 I’m awake. Hopefully, we only have a couple of hours to do. I’ll have to get up in a minute. Pfft! Working on Saturday’s!?! I know someone who would laugh on my face, hearing a statement like that from me. A full on “PPFFTTT!” still, it’s a pain in the arse. I think next week …
