dove's washing detergent


Dove: So what should we have for dinner – chicken frikkadels or mini pizzas designed for kids at birthday parties?

Peas: Both. Bring it.

Dove: So tell me everything.

Peas: [tells her everything].

[pause]

Dove: Wow.

Peas: Yeah. Except you’re going to Nepal in three days. To teach monks English. Voluntarily.

Dove: Shit.

You’re a saint. Now there’s something you don’t hear me saying everyday.

Dove: I know, am slightly terrified.

Isn’t my little friend so brave? She’s quit her job, and is headed to Nepal for a month to teach a clutch of very religious men the English word. Or at least how to say, ‘Hi, how are you.’

I love Dove. She offers me washing powder for my 8 loads of laundry sitting at home in a disposable Tupperware because I haven’t had time to go to the shops yet.

I can chat to her frankly about any old shit and she just gets it.

In other news, I got a bunch of incredible – new/this century/now – minimal techno music from him in London. It’s all I can listen to.

I can’t get hold of the Mexican Embassy. So what else is new.

I love blush. Probably more than mascara.

Wrenched open my DVD player with a knife this morning. I thought wedging a knife into an electrical appliance would induce a toaster-in-the-bath tub effect. Came out unscathed. But if the CD player wasn't fucked before, it is now.

I am completely high on Nurofen this morning. Hence the scattered post.
Coffee. Now.

po - yip it'll cost you a set of knackers unfortunately. I got this bad boy at Dublin airport cos I was sooo cold (sans coat). But I like to think the expense was worth it...sigh

Kate - ooooh! seriously?? I'm gonna give that a try - between Ribena and Cadbury's, they should be loving us :)

Twinkletits - and I love your name :)
