Going Gonzo – Interaction.

Monday, 8th July 2019. 08.54 And it goes on. I had a call from my ex saying that Sonny isn’t coming this weekend. He was supposed to come and stay from Wednesday until Monday. The reason he was coming Wednesday was that she was coming to Staines to take Louis out for his birthday but he wants to do sonething …

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 – Chasing Dreams.

Sunday, 30th June 2019. 19.36 As I always say, that 14.30 slot on the Pyramid Stage is always worth a look. It was nice to see Kylie appreciate that magic moment. Also, fuck! That’s a lot of people. I almost cried. Not as much as when I saw Lionel Richie but it is biased as I was in the crowd. …

Going Gonzo – Drab & Colourless World

Friday, 528th June 2019. 07.54 I’m sure it’ll be lovely later but, right now, it really is a drab and colourless world. Jay says I look really tired but it must be the effects of oversleeping as I have had loads. The same as normal surely? 11.31 Apparently, I’ve never eaten breakfast. 14.26 We just gave up in the end. …

Going Gonzo – Once More Unto The Breach

Thursday, 27th June 2019. 06.39 My final “maxed out” credit card had just enough money on it to get a travelcard. Eating today is not looking likely.I knew it would get this bad before it got better.81o This is it. This is what I got. This is the way it is. 07.37 “D’you know what your problem is?” “What?” “You …

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 – GREED.

Wednesday, 19th June 2019. 07.25 We attempted the 06.29 this morning. As suspected, it was full when it arrived in Staines. We squeezed on anyway, and stood. Luckily, the Bakerloo was empty when we got on it. I just about squeezed one last train fare from the last credit card with any money on it. I put my invoice in. …

Going Gonzo – Crammed Full Of Wankers.

Tuesday, 18th June 2019. 07.02 As suspected, STANDING ROOM ONLY. A starter of Bowie seemed appropriate. It seems ridiculous to do train track works during the week. There is normally about 5 trains before this one. Today there was one at 06.29 and everyone knows that the 06.29 is crammed full of wankers from Reading. We have just hit Whitton …

Going Gonzo – Monday Matters.

Monday, 17th June 2019. 06.38 I was supposed to be on the 06.08 but but I awoke firmly cupping one of Carter’s boob’s and decided to have a couple of extra snoozes. Not that it matters. Another plus for the self employed. 07.21 I’m getting there. Slowly. Maybe it just feels slow because I haven’t had my coffee yet? I’ve …

Going Gonzo – I Can’t Get A Life If My Hearts Not In it.

Friday, 14th June 2019. 14.51 The day was a little tiring but we achieved reasonable goals. The only real hiccup was having a fry-up in an Italian restaurant where they didn’t have brown sauce. “but love, how am I supposed to enjoy my Cumberland’s?” These things seem to matter at the time. The rest of the day went like this: …
