It looks like there’ll be no work this week either. This is grim news but i remain cheerfully deranged. i have paid February’s rent and if i fast every other day i can make it to my 34th birthday if not to March. i am determined to use my remaining days as fruitfully as possible, so i am preparing a Condensed Classics book – all the great works of Western civilisation in one manageable volume. A tall order, you may say, but if i condense each to one line i think it will be possible. Here is James Joyce’s entry:

– One-handed adulterer, he said grimly. That tickles me I must say.
