I need a camera to my eye
to my eye reminding
which lies have I been hiding
which echoes belong
(Kamera - Wilco)

"How the hell does this work again?"

I turned 47 today.

If 47 isn't a time for reflection on your life, on what has passed and what is to come, then Christ I don't know what is. On the upside, you no longer give a shit about what others think about you. If they like you, great; if they don't, fuck 'em. On the downside, you can pretty much assume your life is more than half over.

You slowly realise that you are no longer 20. You don't abuse your body anymore and you learn to look after yourself. Fact is, I feel better, younger, and more energetic now than I did 10 years ago.

This is what the horoscope in the newspaper said about people born on October 10:

You're not casual. Quite the oposite; you're careful and precise. You observe everything around you. You are patient and will work tirelessly for your goals. You know how to create a beautiful home. In the year ahead, you'll wrap up things you've been involved with for years.

And of course we all know that horoscopes are bang-on accurate.

Actually my friend Holly in London once did my horoscope based on my date and time and place of birth and I really liked what she came up with:

"You are not as nice as people think you are."

Haha, fuck 'em if they can't take a joke!

Thanks y'all! Wish I had some cake to give you, but we ended up with rhubarb pie instead. And I spent the whole day talking about "piii" (like Cartman)!

You are so on for the big-assed womanly drink, Bev. Uh, that's the drink that's big-assed, of course, not the women. Never the women!
