blurbs for some things in my flat:


general pile of things owned by my ex-flatmate until she can move into her own flat at the end of the month:

"With this pile of general things, Sian Cummins has done something new, something I've not seen done before. Effortless."
upside-down cap from a water bottle next to the sink:

"Like a breath of fresh-air. A simple beauty, the likes of which I have not seen in a long time. Miraculous."
leaflet on eggs, picked up from the checkout at morrisons, now slightly tea-stained:
"This leaflet on eggs is either disturbingly brilliant, or brilliantly disturbing. Whichever, I loved it."
penguin bar wrapper, near the corner of my laptop:

"Unputdownable."



mysterious empty vase (once held flowers, now unsure what to do with it):

"Precise and masterly, this empty vase tells us things we already knew, things we didn't know, and things we would hope to avoid. Thrilling."


small cross-section of the orange throw i bought from ikea to cover a stained old sofa:


"Reminiscent of the works of McEwen and possibly even Updike, this cross-section of orange throw is up there with the greats."

These are the most generous reviews I have ever read. What a bunch of rubbish. That water top looks terrible. You're so god damn cliquey.

SAF clearly knows nothing of art and less about manners, if i was in Manchester why I would hand deliver my hotly worded letter of disdain, unfortunately I'm holidaying in Monaco so will have to post the thing instead.

by the way, I'll give you £170,000 for:

Joy in warcraft leveling living comes wow lvl from having wow lvl fine emotions,wow power level trusting them,power leveling giving them power leveling the freedom of wrath of the lich king power leveling a bird in the open.wlk power leveling Joy in living can age of conan gold never be assumed as a pose,or put on from guildwars gold the outside as a mask. People who have this joy don not need maple story mesos to talk about it; they radiate it. They just live out their joy and let it splash its sunlight and glow into other lives as naturally as bird sings.We can never get it by working for it directly.
