Nostalgia attack 357
Sun, Dec 03 2006 @ 01:43   //   Category: Me about me

Recently I have again been thinking back on my frequent trips to London this spring and summer... the truly amazing times I had visiting Alisdair (& Tom). It now seems like a very encapsulated period - so remote and yet so vivid still. Its soundtrack is Pink's I'm Not Dead (and this is also what has made me think of it again).

I mourn those times, I truly do. I know, rationally, that they weren't always that rosy, that I was often upset or confused. I'm idealising retrospectively, but so what? It's better to hold on to the good memories than to dwell on the bad, right? (and God knows I'm an expert at that.)

I know what I had then can never be repeated. Things have changed. This is infinitely sad, tho it was a long time coming I guess. But I recognised something else tonight: for years I used to think of the very first squiZZvisits to Luxembourg as the best times I ever had with him - often it seemed as if it only went downhill from there.

But I think I can say now (I haven't yet decided for sure) that this summer, generally speaking, topped those. And this is strangely comforting - I/we still managed to get something truly great out of our friendship, after all the shit and hassle. Even if, in the end, I realised that on average it probably causes me too much hurt to make it worth it. (but this too is something I haven't yet decided for sure - which is why I'm still here I guess, thinking out loud. heh.)

I can't decide... is this a positive entry, or a negative one?

So. I am. Home.

And what is there to say... not much really. It's good to be back in my colourful little flat. It's stormy and rainy but I don't care cuz I am inside. And it's not really very cold, which is good cuz it means I save money on heating.

I've always wondered where Brighton's red light district was, and how come I didn't know this... so today I googled it and behold:

There has never been a red light district in Brighton and Hove, unlike cities further along the coast, such as Portsmouth. [source]

And yes, I was reminded of this by news of the Ipswich ripper - strangely fascinating. But bad of course. Baad!

PS Heroine/Girl has blogged about the case - she knows the streets first hand and apparently knows a Suffolk cop too. Go read!

He's a British comedian, probably best known for his books Are You Dave Gorman? and Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure (yes he likes to have his name in book titles).

Anyway. He also takes pretty pics, and I highly recommend his "most interesting photos" set on Flickr, and most notably his cities by night, such as Stockholm, New York, London, Chicago, Seattle, and so on.

Yay for Flickr awesomeness! (I should probably start using del.icio.us to keep track of this stuff)

So my (!) Leona won the X-factor, as well she should. :D That makes me the most proudest (!) person in the world on this website. (lol) But I must say Ray was very cute on this show - he does have a high likeability factor (shush Mel!). And he sure is more eloquent than her uh? :|

Sooo... can we make it to 50 comments again...?? (only kidding!)

Manifold have been the calls for an update these past few days, so as a very special Christmas present (despite the fact that I don't celebrate Christmas and do actually hate it) I shall indulge you and give you this goodie-filled nonsense-rambling entry! Yay!
