Old Man Chirac And July's GDR
Just another G8 summit then! And it will probably worse because tonight is another march to Murrayfield for the final Live8 concert. Wonderful.
By lunchtime there were more reports of demo's sprouting up across Edinburgh in the West End, The Mound and Waterloo Place. Have they got nothing better to do? These people are such a pain in the arse, though I have to thank them for one thing - an idea for a short story based on all the troubles.
That old scamp over in Paris, President Jacques Chirac stood on a few British toes yesterday when he said, "One cannot trust people whose cuisine is so bad - after Finland, it is the country with the worst food."
That's fine Mr. Increasingly-unpopular-in-the-Euro-community, we will expect you to pull your nation out from the Olympics in 2012 when it is held in London - after we won it over the top of your bid, which you spent millions on over a period of five years putting together. Shame that.
Or perhaps you might choke on those words as you tuck into your 3-star Michelin meal at Gleneagles over the next couple of days. Or maybe you should have taken a course in international relations first.
Can you believe this man thinks he is the same lever as Her Majesty The Queen because he is a Head of State? I think the man is going loopy and should go before he is ever so gently pushed.
I wrote out my interview response and worked on Whisky Snatching. It needed a different ending to what I was planning and this makes it much stronger and sadder. A heart-wrenching tale of solitude in humour. I also complete the 3 poems sitting in my 'waiting for a final polish' pile and wrote up this month's GDR.
It is going to be pretty much the same stuff I never got done last month but will also include two larger pieces of work in the KIC e-book and the 13 Journals Project. I listed this project in a different category, as I see it not just as a fictional piece of work (or non-fictional come to that). It covers everything - or it will do in my case. Can't wait to get started on it.
