1. Having an argument with her
Well it all started because she thought that I said that she
said... It's quite confusing really but it was something about
having the 'exception celebrity'. You know, the
that you are exempt from relationship restraints to sleep with?
2. Making up with her girlfriend
I didn't want to forgive her, but she brought round homemade
cupcakes and my flat mates had just gone out…so I was forced into
putting time aside for reconciliation. I told you I can't resist
3. Moving in with her girlfriend
Well, we had the talk. And then it was all decided today.
Surprise! Her room's quite small so it took a while for me to
balance the accessories' shelf and make sure the toiletries'
cupboard didn't fall off the hook. I should get back to her soon
actually because she needs me to install the digi box.
4. Feeding her cat
Because little 'Roar' comes first, don't you realise? He only
eats Waitrose line-caught tuna so I had to make a little excursion.
I couldn't have him going hungry. Oh and I needed to dust-bust his
5. Straightening her hair
There are five sections: two on the left, two on the right and
most importantly, the fringe.
You just can't get the GHDs hot quickly enough to eliminate
6. Patching up her jeans
They're my favourites and I don't care if I have taken them to
three festivals and on my round-the-world trip. I can't let them
go; these jeans are part of my character. I found some old tartan
material and started stitching..and lost track of time thinking
about the last time I wore them on that meditation retreat in Goa.
I can still smell the woodsmoke.
7. Writing lyrics/poetry about her ex
I accidentally sprayed a deodorant that she left here and
everything just came flooding back. I had to write, right then. I
wouldn't have been able to go out in such an emotional state, so I
needed that catharsis. Luckily, now I have a new set of songs for
next week's gig.
8. Getting her tattoo touched up
The lily wasn't perfect, was it? Needed a bit more colour. It's
been playing on my mind and the parlour was only five more stops on
the tube. But I'm afraid it means the drinks are on you
9. Rolling her sleeves up to the perfect
There's a knack but I just don't seem to have it. Slightly too
rolled or not rolled enough. I tried the inconspicuous hair-grip
but it poked my arm. So I gave up and went to buy a t-shirt with
those pre-rolled ones; much easier.
10. Deciding which pair of Toms to wear (is it a block
colour or a pattern day?!)
As they are such a great answer to not buying sandals and still
being able to feel you toes after five minutes, I thought I was
being not just charitable, but practical when buying six pairs. I
had, however, created more problems: the elephants are cute but
more of a day-time look, the blue are understated but don't go with
my Levis, and I just didn't think the world was ready for my feet
dressed in pink-camo.
