The Jigsaw Man

To steal from Steinbeck - the best intentions of mice and men! I am so angry I could..........stamp on a hamster. Not smoking lasted 4 hours and 31 minutes (mainly while I was asleep). Didn't pick the best time to give up. The love-in terminates today as she has a "ticket to ride". My ex has gone decidedly "stage-left" and it's still chuffing raining.

As Gaz says in The Full Monty - "It's all to f*cking cock is this". Trying to be positive though - grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Did manage to find 50 euros I had stashed in a drawer - don't remember why but hooray anyway. 10 bottles of Wodka if I shop at Murky Donna (the cheap supermarket in Spain).

So, why the Jigsaw Man? - because I feel like a jigsaw with a piece missing - 999 pieces in a 1000 piece tale. Every time I think I have the chuffer figured, I can't complete the puzzle. Suppose I could just cheat and give it away to charity!! And I still have this overwhelming feeling of doom as I know I have to move back to Belgium from Spain - chuffing great......mayonnaise with everything again! Looking on the not so bright side, at least it will be easy to remain Gothic and I still have my umbrella collection ;-)

Today is a trip to the Aeropuerto - slowly on the way there, attempt to break the land speed record on the way back. Thankfully, I don't have to go to Ali-twatty airport - god I hate that place. Thank Goth I have a copy of The Shining on DVD to watch later - "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".

Should be happy - living mainly in Spain and not on the plain but Goth rules apply - no smiling, being happy or wearing colours other than black. I went to do an intensive Spanish course at the University - I can read, translate and speak Spanish but wanted to improve it. Had to drop out however - the dinky little French "chick" sat next to me was too much of a temptation and I don't want my libido running my life.........think "shoe repair shop"!!

So, I'm off to look for the missing piece of the puzzle. It's bound to be somewhere obvious - Einstein said so.....not personally but laws of physics etc. Could read "Mastering UNIX" but it's so chuffing boring - oh bollox, get the Richard Pryor DVD out!!

a luego,

You are puzzling me, Master. Other than glue, soles, hammer & nails, what is there to think about as far as a shoe repair shop is concerned?

Oh my Goth, are you really doomed to move back to Belgica? Did the Spanish patatas fritas & salsa mayonesa leave a bad taste in your mouth?

Your missing screw must be in that drawer where you found the €50...

lShoe repair shop is the most boring thing I can think of to divert mind from other matters - think about it long enough and you'll get the picture.

And yes, Belgique calls - a little matter called money. Life in Spain is cheaper, better and nicer but the accountant prefers it when the bank balance looks bigger. Brollies all around then.

Try the combination I've given you elsewhere, you might be able to raise the bank balance and stay in Spain after all.

I'm not sure if I want to combine elsewhere thankyou. I spent 6 months in Yeovil, Somerset as an IT Manager so I can recognise a combine when I see one. It's not big and it's not clever!!

I guess you want me to stay in Spain as you don't want to "bump" into me in Bru?!

Nearly time to do that "washing hair" thing - have to change the salutation from Master to Mistress when I have finished.

MKWM dijo...

Master, they were random figures and you admitted using two of them anyway.

Correct, I want you to stay in Spain. But your long hair and black clothes couldn't possibly scare me. On the contrary, they would enable me to recognise you from far away, not to mention the big belly, or the big bum...

Sorry, Goth old love, but the quote is:

The best-laid schemes o' mice an 'men
Gang aft agley

Robert Burns. But then I would know that, being a Sweaty.

Steinbeck wrote the novel 'Of Mice and Men'.

Close, but no cigarillo, Chico...
