Ahoy there, casual lovers

I decided to escape the confines of Griefjunkie Towers and go to a county fair the other day, which is how I came to be watching fourteen sullen labradors being led around a field in the pouring rain to, improbably, Solitary Sister by Seal. I had been particularly keen to see the display of working dogs in case they were going to pull accountancy skillz out, but they had nothing more remarkable than the ability to walk slowly in a big circle, although one of them was pulling a tiny cart that had nothing in it. I am a noted dogophile and tbh cant get enough of the hairy little fools, but it was proper raining so I left them to their unenthusiastic wanderings and took shelter in a Star Wars Role Players tent till it stopped.   I also entered a tombola, but won fuck all.

This was time I could ill-afford however – although come on, it was a working dogs display – as this week has been largely taken up with the accelerating preparations for Joe’s wedding.  Two bits of news here: a) there is only one legal bridesmaid and b) I am the vicar.   I really am actually the vicar.   They are getting the civil bit done first off, then everyone is trooping up a hill or something where what Joe and Abby regard as the actual ceremony is taking place, and I am very honoured to announce I have been asked to preside over it.  Mental.

Wedding though innit, so it has to be above board, although it will be hard to resist deliberately getting the names wrong for a larf and such, despite being reliably informed that I will be lanced with a champagne flute by the bride if I do.  You really want to say ‘Yeah if anyone knows of any reason why this man and this woman should not be joined in holy matrimony – apart from the obvious one that Joe is a shiftless fuckwit who can barely dress himself – please speak now’ but Abby would just go right off on one. I’ll probably conclude though by asking if anyone else fancies getting married while I’m there, or if there’s any christenings anyone needs to quickly get out of the way or whatever. It’s not every day you are temporarily ordained, seems a shame to waste it.

Today was very quiet at Camden, so Pikey Dave entertained us by showing us his orgasm face. It is horrible, and I can only hope he never shags me.

Ahoy there, casual lovers

With his wedding hurtling towards us with dizzying speed, Joe has discovered that to get married in this country costs £103.50. That covers everything you need – vicar, poisonous gossip, scuffles at the buffet, and so forth – and seems a bit steep, really. It seems especially pricey when you consider that the cost of legally kicking a naked midget in the UK is just £20.

Ahoy there, casual lovers

Yeah last night saw a short wander up the canal for those of us in the East Yard to London’s popular London Zoo. They do these late opening evenings there now and then – a bit like a parents’ evening I suppose, where all the animals’ parents are invited in to chat to the zookeeper – and we get free tickets because we are the best.    I had a hotdog and then saw a lion roar, then sneeze, then look embarrassed, and as you can imagine I was well chuffed with that.
