This is my blog entry from last night. It's the follow up to the last one - now for the so-called good things...
certain kind of fool # 2
It's been a night of gordon lightfoot's don quixote album and now on to merle haggard. I like these songwriters with stories to tell. Earlier in the day it was Keane. Who knows what each day will bring . Depends which mood strikes.
I've been sitting here thinking: will I do it or not. Write the folllow up to the previous post. Why is that people find it easier to say negative things about themselves rather than positive? - when it could be such a useful exercise - to try and look at yourself in a positive light. Further to the journey into complete self-absorption...
why i am a somewhat tolerable person
ummm......hell, this is actually very difficult. Anyone who is reading this should try it for themselves - then you will know what I mean. I don't think I can do it.
O.K. I am mostly kind. Well I can be an utter cow at times, but for the most part am fairly kind. This is taking forever - can't think of anything at all.
What else? If you are elderly I will offer you a seat without fail.
I have manners.
I'm a tidy person.
(on a roll now )
I will admit it if I am wrong.
I won't continue an argument just to prove a point(not all the time anyway) .
I might not agree with you but will respect your point of view (unless I'm premenstrual in which case I might attempt to stab you with forks or any other implements that are hanging around).
I will help you if I possibly can (that includes pulling the forks out of your temples).
If I have a bit too much to drink the worse thing that will happen is the urge to play the harmonica very badly and to dance to heroes by david bowie in an ungainly fashion (frightening and disturbing, perhaps, but not intolerable) .
If I say I'm going to do something, I do it .
I am trustworthy.
Oh that's it. This is such bollocks. I can't even make a serious attempt at it. It really is difficult . Though maybe it's insecurity talking? A truly secure person mightn't have a problem with it at all.
