I would have made a great butcher
I was tagged an age ago by Cybez from the Bog Standard Blog and then by Other Manuel (original Manuel you could say) from Manuel Stimulation. I'm not sure what they want from me but here are 8 things about me. Specifically 8 other things I would have liked to have done if I wasn't so lucky to be a waiter.
2. I spend a very high percentage of my available cash on music. If I'm not trawling ebay for rare and lovely vinyl I am talking about it and even listening to it and so on. Most of my chums are in bands or involved with music in some way. As a talentless oaf who can't even dance, despite years of ballet, or even play the spoons I was constantly relegated to carrying things in order to gain free access to their gigs. As a rule I wouldn't want to be a rock star, as Dave Pajo from Slint/Zwan/Papa M put it "I have tasted fame and it tastes like dog turd, just give me the money". That in mind I would have liked to have been a producer or manager. All the cash minus the hassle. Nice. Wouldn't kill anyone though, or allegedly kill anyone.
4. I cant play chess. Never been able to learn. It's true I never tried to learn. But I would like to be a Chess Grand-master. They seem like a fun sort. Look at Bobby Fischer, he has millions of fun! As a Chess Grand-master you get to sit about all day wearing turtle neck shirts whilst stroking your chin in a wise and sage fashion. Saying that Deep Blue now works for American Airlines, handling ticket sales. That's a bit sad, and I wouldn't like that.
who says it's not me?
6. I lie awake at night thinking about what it would be like to own my own club/bar. I don't mean some modern soulless hell hole called Panda Panda or something equally shite. I mean a classy 1930's style swing club. I would really rather just go back in time to the roaring 30's. Classy suits, "dames", Louis Armstrong on piano, burlesque, vodka martinis, cigarettes in silver holders, the Charleston, big bands. God I want that so much. If there are any time lords out there is there any chance we could meet to discus how we make this happen?
8. Really I just want to be old. In a family were the men rarely make it past 60 it's the best I can hope for. It's not much to ask is it? I'm off for a smoke and to think about being old....
I'll not be tagging anyone back, so carry on as you were.....
