I can't even swallow water

Monday, December 29, 2008
So I figured out why some people like me. They are a select few, no doubt, but they're out there, those likers. I get the liking from lots of people in work, of course, but they hardly count. I have a big in work act, you see, full of wry humour and gentle enthusiasm. The aforementioned booze lake was muchly supplied by these deluded Work Gimme admirers. Fuck, even I like the Work Me, most of the time, and I might well have parted with a bottle of whiskey myself, for myself, if I happened to be as rich as many of those generous bozos.

But even outside of this space of spin there are those that can shockingly stand me. And as I say, I think I've worked out why. It's to do with something I do, something I do because I don't know what else to do. But I'm not going to tell you what it is. Because you might well be one of those likers and I don't want to ruin it for myself. I quite like being liked when it doesn't involve any work on my part and as I stare down the barrel of another year of crushed hopes and self-inflicted inertia, I can't help but believe that other people not thinking I'm a cunt might eventually have me arriving at the same conclusion.

It's Sally Field all over again, isn't it?

Yeah, tough guy. We likes you, and not on account of "something I do" neither. We just likes you.

Now, make with the sobbing...

What, end of the year and you're opening veins instead of gifts?
Be more positive, Gimme!

You're kidding, right?

That was my most positive post in months.

I doubt even Jesus goes on about his birthday this much...

I was on my best behaviour. And even so, you were much more sweetier.

You're probably a smug bastard now that you're off the fags though.
