Stay away from Grogans.

Having an indoor day, keeping me to myself, staying stuck to the couch surrounded by my DVDs, but can't decide what to watch.

I think Taxi Driver.

Anyway, quiet enough few days. Saw Atonement on Thursday, riveting stuff, that five-minute tracking shot at Dunkirk a piece of cinematic genius. Took to the drink on Friday night, a few handy ones with Ollie, Noel and the Belle, lovely, then the Liverpool match yesterday in The Bank.

To be continued....

Continuation...

Got distracted there, Cowzer, Dave and JW came a calling for sups and I obliged. Shook now but. It's a beauteous day out there, which probably means I'll stay indoors with the curtains closed and the TV on. Never was one to make the most of the sun.

Back to last night - went to Grogans. In a recent interview, Graham (think that's his first name) Knuttel the artist spoke about his drinking days, and the fact that he gave up the gargle for a number of years. He now drinks once a week. The interviewer asked him what's the best way for someone trying to give up drink to get through their plight.

"Stay away from Grogans," he responded. Pity I didn't heed his advice. In a heap. There are crap stools and flies everywhere, my kind of aleing house.

I'm going back to bed. It's early yet.

I see you've returned to your original livery - or was that Cowzer's?
Whatever happened to under the floodlights? If there was one man that could be more pissed off about certain things than me it was good old Trousers.

Sir, I'm writing to you from the Born Again Church of Redemptionists in Tempe, Arizona, United States of America.
Our devout brother volunteers, as glorious agents of the Good Lord, commenced an internet monitoring unit in 2005. Only the most pristine souled Christian soldiers were seleced for this important mission: to cleanse the net of blasphemous, irreligious and lewd content. As you will appreciate, so mammoth is the task, we are but one good spark crusading against an inferno of badness. Thus we need assistance from all of those globally for whom the word of the Bible is the beat of the heart.
Mr Ragery, one of our devout good brother volunteers, Fred Hotchiky, brought your blog to my attention. As I read I could feel the warmth of eternity stirring in my veins. I could not but agree with Mr Hotchiky's assessment that it would be a thankful blessing if you would accept this invitation to become an associate brother of the Born Again Church of Redemptionists' European internet monitoring unit. Of course, your remuneration will be the priceless contentment that all of our brothers and associate brothers get from being a part of this vital crusade against the pollution of souls.
My Dearest Mr Radgery, for a full job prospectus please write to me at the above address.

In anticipation, with every blessing,
Bishop Born
