My Only Weakness

  1. Twenty Years, Seven Months, and Twenty-Seven Days

    Feels like that long since I wrote here.
    I feel secretive, guarded, and exposed as I poise to write.
    I have not written in the full length of time I have been gone from here. I occasionally fall mute, to the unconcealed surprise of those who know me. It isn't within my nature to be quiet, much less brief. But, twice in my life, I have been struck mute by the gravity of the reality in which I have found myself. And not for a moment, but for months. I spoke to someone the other night, ...

  2. Big Mouths, lah de dah

    I have never really appreciated unsolicited advice.
    I don't "take" it.
    I don't take orders, either.
    I will seek out things I need to know.
    And as far as orders go, I've been running my own little show for ages and I will continue to do so.
    I don't get off on being bossy, and I certainly won't allow someone to boss me around.
    There are some females in my sphere that fancy themselves as foremen. They like to tell others what to do.
    Now, any ...

  3. Highland Fling

    I am in the land of Scots.
    I am so happy when I'm here!
    Everywhere I look, there is something else I absolutely adore. It is such a gorgeous day.
    We woke up early, there are some very posh boys from down South back in England that are staying with us this year. They are blond, have perfect tv teeth, and are so polite, well spoken and cute!
    Eton boys.
    I'm so accustomed to the usual theatre tech piss head who drinks too much every night and has to be poured into ...
  4. Slip Into Silent Slumber

    I want to be Rachel Brice.
    I think this is so ethereal and exotic.
    It's beautiful.
    That style of dance is incredibly taxing. The amount of control you must have over your movements requires such strength. It doesn't really look like she's doing much, but I know from past experience whilst studying dance, that this requires a finely honed skill set, and the ability to work through ...
  5. Past The Pub That Wrecks Your Body

    We got a really weird phone call yesterday morning.
    A guy we don't really know very well has asked us to move into his recently purchased hotel/pub and run it.
    It looks pretty good on the auction house website.
    Not perfect, but workable.
    We're going down to have a look at it tomorrow.
    There are some aspects of the situation that would be great, others not so great.
    For a start, I'll have to immediately hire staff.
    Finding good help in these two areas ...

  6. A Quick Word

    I know that things get nasty on this site, but I have a different experience here.
    I enjoy coming here, I enjoy the exchanges with my fellow writers, look forward to reading new posts and actually miss folks when they aren't about for whatever reason.
    Everybody that had been missing turned up over the last few days, (no word from HIG, but she's been to see Moz, so I hope we hear how that went SOON, ahem, HEEEEY, how was the show?!??!)
    Anyway, I just wanted to take this space ...

  7. To Pretend To Be Happy Could Only Be Hideous

    I am so miserable.
    For so many reasons.
    And I am completely unable to do very much about it right this moment, thus, compounding the misery, exponentially.
    I totally had a meltdown this morning.
    After being let down yesterday, AGAIN, by someone I trusted, this morning, I was in no frame of mind to be tolerant of someone else's fragile scope of the world.
    Not willing to entertain anymore delusions for the sake of peace. And absolutely not going to endure over the ...

    I just can't believe that was Bruce Jenner.
    The guy from the Wheaties box...
    He must've been burning up inside all those years thinking he was the better
    looking female in that house and he had to play a man with botched plastic surgery. I hope she feels better now in her new skin.

  9. Let Me Get What I Want

    I found a company for whom I would actually LOVE to work. So, in typical Charlie fashion, I just wrote the owner.
    I didn't even look for employment listings for the company.
    Didn't check for a human resources contact. I just went straight to the MAN. It will either work, or it won't.
    What have I to lose?
    I'm already not working for them, and that's the worst that could happen, so....
    Really cool company. I sincerely hope it comes to something. It's just the way ...
  10. These Smiths

    On May 3rd, I went to Ducie Bridge in Manchester with a lovely writer/former Manc band member, whom I have not asked for permission to divulge his name, so, as per MOW policy, he shall, here, remain nameless. Unless he reads this and says it's ok....
    Isn't it nice to know what a confidant I can be?!
    Better than a priest and psychiatrist, for sure!
    Anyway, we saw a Smiths tribute band that just totally blew me away!
    I wasn't expecting to get such a convincing Moz tone ...
