do the right thing

ah, there's so much been said about live 8. thing is – say it loud, like bob, with swearing, like snoop dogg, or slyly in the pub if you're a student afraid of seeming – gasp! – political, it's pretty much a good idea. it's a monumental event. it's global, unifying, uplifting. i've been watching the music all day and singing along, and yes, crying again when they show the harrowing, harrowing footage of the children starving. and maybe i'm just another ponce with a wristband, lazing about in my living room, but there's a spark of belief and a glitter of hope that this might all do some good.

join the rally. every voice helps. add yours.

on the non- side [just non-, the non- that one becomes one's whole self once you get home and realise that all your friends are somewhere else and you have no money and bedtime is suddenly enforced by the whole house going dark at 11pm and the only distraction is reclining in one's shades and dressing gown, drinking absinthe – sipping – and scowling], today i looked after lois. she taught me the sign language to amarillo. i may make a photo entry giving the instructions because it's very good fun. i'm going to be forcing you all to learn it from me the second i see you again. my sister is cool.

alright, peace out.
