It's William Blake's Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies Dancing...I just recognised the group...Pink Floyd.

That is a most beautiful hug Tatiana. Thank you.

...indeed... Very Happy cheers

I think it's the bloke who buttonholed Bob Dylan in the course of a '60's interview and, referencing the Highway 61 album sleeve artwork, attempted to "out" him regarding his sexuality.

Why Twoody should choose it as his avatar is anyone's guess.

Like a Star @ heaven at first I was way too embarrassed to even open this thread.....I was mortified Embarassed

SJ said everything was OK, but I still haven't had the nerve to read what I wrote

awful - absolutely awful

it's not unusual for me to get like that after a tipple

but I am so embarrassed and apologetic for writing that shit.....

I'm working backwards - I've got to page 4 (from 6) but I don't have the nerve to read any more at the moment

I haven't read the Harpie stuff - I just read the stuff the morning after - after the air had cleared

we're not even - not nearly - no-one deserves to be bombarded with horrible words and sentiments like that out of the blue as they say

I still have to make amends.....Embarassed

you're a very good sport to forgive me Smile

I wouldn't call it vulnerable - I'm as strong as an ox...(at least I think I am Razz)...it might seem vulnerable but it usually doesn't give me a jot of concern that lasts longer than 2 days......I'm just myself always.....for good or ill.....I wouldn't say I'm that guarded - I believe in free expression......

I don't dwell on things....(longer than a day or two)......I suppose I ought to really, considering my explosive personality might affect a tender soul for much longer than 2 days.....

thanks for being so nice about it - and I'm glad it didn't cause any hurt......Smile

I need to get an avatar, don't I?

I shall dutifully go look now Very Happy

bride of Frankenstein, anyone? lol

no, don't worry - the thought hadn't crossed my mind - you're down to earth etc

sometimes middle-class older women smile at me in Sydney

in my mind what is going through their heads is 'she's one of us'.....hehehe...."she looks decent" Razz

I don't know whether that's a good thing (in fact, I'm pretty sure it's not)...and I don't think it's just friendliness

it's like I've been accepted into the club....hehehehe Shocked

if there ever was a tribe I didn't want to belong to - it's middle-aged, middle-class, middle of the road - you get it.......

but when I was a struggling 30-something it was the opposite end of the spectrum (sneers etc)

I'm not really sure what's changed scratch

maybe I have some patina of wealth because there's no rips and tears in my clothes anymore

I've always had class.....chchchchc Razz

so was Michael's family.......(I call them peasants when I'm angry with him and want to get his goat up....hehehehe)

seriously I was born into the lap of luxury.......

I made my own way since I was 17......broke and broken

I used to get spit at on the streets in London (some man would look at me and spit in my path) so many times that I turned my face to flint

then they would say I thought I was better than them

couldn't win

I was a nervous wreck.......I had to ask my friend to talk to me on the mobile once when I went to the shops - to talk me through the walk to the shops......it was excruciating......the buses were the worst and the tube

I think we could swap a few stories about sneers and what it feels like to be a pariah.....

but I don't think I would ever want to relive that part of my life

...in London I went for a job interview. It was a cleaning position in a private hotel. I had to find a back-alley entrance because they wouldn't let me through the front door. I was underdressed for the interview.

I got a job in a laundromat. Every morning I had to open the shop and go down a damp and dank set of narrow stairs to...the boilers. I had to fire them up. The thought still makes me recoil. My boss would turn up a few hours later. Although she wore false teeth, it looked like she didn't, and her thin lips always wore a streak of red lippy. Her hair was always in clips and covered with a scarf and there was always a cigarette dangling from the side of her mouth. I think she had eggs and bacon, eggs and baked beans, or eggs and sausages every night for tea.

I later had a job in a pub. It was supposed to be a rough clientele. I liked them. Absolutely passionate and riveting dancers one and all...but the bouncers...I was terrified of the bouncers.

...that just reminded me of a funny story about 'moroccan gold' and setting my dress on fire...

best go. I tend to forget this is a public place. Shocked

let it all hang out - I do Smile

probably shouldn't really....... Neutral

that's awful - I've never had to do much menial work unless you count being a student nurse (hand-washing bed pans etc)

but there was still some glamour to it - a bit of the old Florence Nightingale

I remember some guy in the orthopaedic ward had a clue in his crossword puzzle

the answer was 'Kubla Khan' - he was astounded that I knew it......nurses don't get much glory

once I was a temporary secretary for the treasurer of Gray's Inn

it really is a kind of inn - with the tradition of providing victuals for the barristers

I had to eat my lunch in the servant's area.....heheheheheh......which was an area that was raised above the dining hall

another time I worked for a famous charity - somebody told me to get the mugs in the boardroom and wash them

I said "I'm a receptionist, not a servant" chchchch......

she wasn't very happy about it

when I first came to Sydney I worked as a housekeeper in a hotel.....for a couple of days......

it was disgusting - guests would leave sperm on the shower walls etc and the kitchen was overrun with cockroaches - it was one of the guide-book favourites.....lol

but I do have some pride and I don't usually stay in jobs like that very long

let it all hang out - I do (Catherine)

...well, acting on a tip, I approached a dreaded bouncer for a banned green leafy substance. I asked him for 5 pounds worth. He gave me a matchbox. I raced home after my shift. It was across the road. I shared with about 10 others. Mostly Aussies. It was 2am.

I opened the matchbox and to my disgust found it full of brown powder. Because half the house thought pot was for losers I didn't like to give myself away with anything so obvious as cigarette papers, so I de-tobaccoed a B&H and filled the cylinder with the brown powder.

Up a few floors. Out the fire escape. Quick look up to see if any star might be visible through the glare (just silly habit). Smoke half the thing. Go downstairs and turn on telly. Settle back on the couch in the darkness and light up again.

Vincent Price. In an old biplane. He is wearing a scarf. From under the scarf comes a...a rat. Then he is crawling with rats. They gnaw. It's in black and white. It's called something like the fearless Dr. Phibes rides again. The rats are in a frenzy. They squeak and rip face flesh.

I am too stoned to get up and turn this terrifying thing off. I smell smoke. I'm on fire. The powder is alight and is dropping. It's my only dress. It's the dress I bought to wear when the boy I loved married someone else.

A motivation for me to go to London was so that I could visit my grandmother's birthplace and in some mystical way 'connect' with her. Well Catherine, when I saw her apparition that night as I was about to trek up the stairs to bed, I just gasped and shut my eyes and ran. It was awful. She looked as though she was trying to warn me about something. Shocked
