FRUITFUL


She Once Was A Friend, originally uploaded by Lektrogirl.

This weekend has been pretty nice hasn't it! Not just the weather [The Heath was like the Apocolypse with people sweltering and staggering around carring all their possessions in Tesco bags... well that isn't very positive of me but when you come from the most beautiful island on Earth Summertime in London is a bit of a bummer - no disrespect but yerrrr.... anyway] but I got a lot of projects underway.

First I woke up and did a painting of Philippa. It has been approved by the Cardinal and her identity correctly guessed by Amy so cool. Then I decided to see why The Frenchman's washing machine was overflowing from the soap department. Crusted with soap and mildew! Gross. Cleaned it all out and was soaking the plastic parts in the sink and decided to move his living room around [he was out at work.] While I did that I thought I broke the monitor but I fixed it. Shit I nearly died. Then, I went to drain the sink and pulled out the plug and the water just sat there. The sink was blocked. Pulled all the pipes apart underneath and drained them. Put them back together and the fucking thing was leaking. Had to go to Homebase for some plumbing tape. Fixed the leaking pipes, but the sink still doesn't drain. I think The Frenchman is off having sex with his other secret girlfriend or getting stoned in the private park behind his flats or God only knows what he gets up to on his own. But he sure makes me laugh and he encourages me to paint and draw and be stupid and I am really really happy.

This makes me want to puke. But I bet it tastes good. Such mixed emotion. Not enough to make me vegan.

A PORTRAIT & A SELF PORTRAIT


A Portrait, originally uploaded by Lektrogirl.



Once Paul B. "Fuckface" Davis said to me "If you are going to put your diary on the wall, you can keep me out of it." And a few other similar remarks about the music / drawing / projects / messing around I did. You know, you got to have a hobbie right? Who knows, you might even get an album on Rephlex out of it yerrr from just doing your own thing. Instead I took what he said to heart and I was totally crushed and too embarrassed to do anything. I felt like a loser compared to everything he and his Beige / Paper Rad friends did. I let my ex husband have this influence on me. What a stupid fucking thing I did. Anyway - I cannot tell you how happy I am just messing about doing my dregs videos, trash can websites and in the bin paintings. In fact, I can't sit still tonight - I already cooked some more friands - and I want a project to do.

THE MIGRAINE SKANK





Paul C accused me of being racist on the grounds he is caramel and Alice I never met. But I love this video they made at home. I wonder if the will know I ripped it? I should probably tell them. Anyway isn't it wonderful to know that I wasn't the only one who was making videos over the weekend. You can check more about Wamp-Nation on their blog.

BLAH BLAH

I have been in batten down the hatches meltdown mode this week and throwing myself into my work and totally switching off when I get home. Which made it so amazing to see the Lady Gang last night Philippa's house for the dinner get together we do every so often. I did not take any pictures - came straight from work and had left my camera at home charging. Madame was there in one of Grandfather Lady's old rubber skirts cut off to secretary length, The Cardinal had on a stunning black dress that was so ladylike she couldn't reach up to get the canelle tin out of the cupboard, Mrs Kipling is undergoing a skin transformation - she was GLOWING and Mrs G was wearing RIPPED JEANS with the best vintage polka dot scarf from here to eternity. So amazing. Bette was also there and she was being super cute trying to avoid everyone. The drink of choice - Aperol & Prosecco / Cava whatever was opened. CHEESECAKE for dessert [The Cardinal's is legendary you know.]

Today I woke up at 1.30 wishing for some more Vietnamese Salad that Cards had prepared next to a slice of Spinach quiche. I lay in bed and tried to positively think it into my life but every time I peeked over the covers a side plate had not appeared on the windowsill... So I got up and decided to cook my own quiche with stuff I had in the fridge and freezer.



So it was a bit random - smoked salmon, braised fennel, spring onion and tarragon but at the same time it was a good combination and I was quite pleased with the results for my first ever quiche. Not as good as Philippa's but not bad for a beginner.

In other news, osl.lameatnames.com is going really well - in fact the visits are blowing up so much so that valeria and I are sharing the hosting of files around three or four different sites trying to scrabble up some space. Oh shit - that reminds me I wanted to tell Pippa something about hosting videos. Brain ache now but I will do it tomorrow or later.

Oh yeah - Pippa and I had to have THAT conversation. The one that had been brewing for a while. We had kind of seen it coming but we never actually said anything to each other about it until last night. VINCENT D'ONOFRIO IS FAT!! I said I would still blow him, but as Pippa said "He has turned into a real man mountain." Anyone else checked him out in series 8 of Law and Order: Criminal Intent? He always had a lot of screen presence - now he totally hogs the camera! [OJ LOL]

Anyway

I'm gonna go catch some episodes. Meltdown is manageable. Not the best time at the moment, but the Lady Gang is always a wicked treat.

LOUSE COLONY


Reeve 78717, originally uploaded by otisarchives1.

Last night I had a lovely evening with the Frenchman, dinner, watched some cop show and then we ate some Ben and Jerry'd and finally the first time for the Frenchman ever; we sat down to watch some cyst YouTube videos. It was certainly something he had never seen before and he could not understand my fascination. We both laughed nervously together and he was spending more time watching me saying "If you love it so much, why aren't you even looking at the screen." I dont know. I still feel squeamish about the long worm like cyst about 10 inches long the feral pulled out of his belly and he shuddered his belly in pain. Gross.

I woke up feeling like this today. I can't drink half a bottle of sparkling blush or rose or anything pink every since the DJ Assault night in Soho. Will the curse ever leave me?

OUR SEX LIFE



Ta-Dah! I have an announcement to make.

Valeria and I have been working on a new development called:

OUR SEX LIFE

We decided that lameatnames.com was going very well, but to be fair to all the people we had collected, we should be also posting ourselves online. As well as creating instead of just collection. And we are equally obsessed with sex, lust and most of all, losing. So we started a thing in wordpress - it isnt really a blog - that is like a skeleton we will fill with blood, sperm and broken hearts to flesh it out. Sadly, we haven't wuite resolved how we will deal with some of the more recent posts are actually historical - you might be looking for updates but we have been scanning in stuff that gets archives in 2005... actually I don't know why I said that "to be fair" business. Like who cares? They didn't.

Anyway, some things about osl.lameatnames.com [osl is said like asshole btw]

DEFINITELY not safe for work [Air Commodore is leaving his job anyway]
DEFINITELY gonna have gross private stuff on there about V & I that you might be too grossed out to inspect [Feel a bit weird about The Cardinal looking - she's such a lady]

So I think I have been clear enough. Something is just nice and nothing too.

Et voila osl.lameatnames.com

MY FAVOURITE SWF

Well she is white and female but she isn't single - she's married to a man who frequently rocks a good look. Which makes her obsession with the pictures of my boyfriends on Flickr even stranger. I have to watch it - as soon as I put a picture of a man I am dating online Caz is there favouriting it up like nobody's business. ODder still they are usually nudie pics.

If you care to check out Mrs G's Flickr favourites, please do! She has also favourited lots of other pictures that I sometimes go and favourite after her.

IKEA® DELFT

I made two strawberry tarts and had some great sex and now I'm looking at this on Flickr.

HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE

Archgate has not gone, it has just moved round the corner onto Holloway Road and is now called Harman. Not only is it bigger, but the view from the window is of Thomas Brothers hardware store rather than the shit hole Archway Tower but still playing the same amazing poxy radio. Missing from the menu is Chicken Diamond!

BORING LIFE BUT I LIKE IT



Time to paint, new hall, new kitchen, new stove [but not installed - PRICKS], new life. I have spent the last day painting my hallway some colour called "alabaster" and I used trade paint that was a bit smellier than Dulux but HALF THE PRICE. Really nice quality paint though if anyone is interested.

My E is from Burger King originally, but I got it from Nathaniel at M Goldstein on Hackney Road. Here is a nice thing on Paul Gorman's blog The Look Presents about the shop. And a picture of Pippa's arse.

Anyway I also got new cooker delivered yesterday but Comet fucked up and sent it with the wrong guys - blokes who can deliver but weren't qualified in how to install it. Durrr. So I can't cook all week. :( The last thing I cooked in my old cooker was a freestyle fish pie. I was very proud of it. I was sad to see my old cooker go actually. I got it for £90 from a refurbished cooker place after getting a flat after being homeless. It served me well. I can't believe I didn't take a picture of the pie! But I did take a picture of my mini Toads In The Holes. TOO GOOD.



I wanted to make some cakes today. Oh well. Next weekend.

PP AT 17



Today after work at the new place I dropped in on the guy with the Urban Jew-Do Paul Peroni [he of the perfectly balanced bobby pins] and we sat and had a chat about hmmm... concerning the edges of feeling comfortable within yourself... if I can paraphrase the whole thing in a one sentence summary. As a result of a statement I made, Paul said he has to send me this list above from Fischli/Weiss and I decided I should share it with all of you. If you are feeling unhappy and fucked after a week at work, it is probably because you are not living life like the above.

My favourite is number 6 - accept change in inevitable. It is a variation on a theme I like to think about and that it - it can be tough sometimes to change your mind when you are half way through something, but sometimes it is okay just to let it go and do something else.

NO TITLE


NCP 10520, originally uploaded by otisarchives1.

Yesterday my amazing friend Loes called me from Rotterdam. She and Thomas had some good news. I have to go and see them. Plus, the restaurants in Rotterdam are banging.

This morning, I have had to get up far too early. 6AM. Although I went to bed feeling very proud of myself after cooking mini Toads-in-the-hole and watching the latest episode of CSI.

Everything is going really well in my life at the moment. Only I feel a bit like I'm without direction - I need some new projects.

Any every time the weather gets nice, I want to go home and see my folks.

Anyway I gotta get to Golders Green now. Why at this hour you don't want to know, but maybe I tell you one day.

MASSIVE TOP SECRET LOLS

I spent a day this Bank Holiday weekend hanging out with XXCENSOREDXX who told me in the strictest confidence about one of the most embarrassing things that could possibly happen when you are in bed with a guy for the first time [other than having your period or not having your period but realising you had an old tampon inside of you FOR EXAMPLE ONLY!] XXCENSOREDXX awoke early only to fart and shit her pants in bed right next to a totally hot dude that she has been trying to get with cause she thinks he is totally banging. Like OMG! Fortunately there were only two stains on the sheet about the size of mini Post It notes [I made her draw a diagram on a piece of paper while choking back a laugh] and the guy slept through the hole thing. XXCENSOREDXX was worried that the guy knew what happened and I told her "Don't worry. A guy does not hang out all day with a girl who shit the bed right next to him on the first day. I'm telling you he does not know."

Then the pair of us were killing ourselves laughing.

XXCENSOREDXX is good like that. She's a good one. So - even though it might seem I am reporting back a piece of 'juicy gossip' I actually appreciate the fact that she is a kind of 'no shit' kind of person and talks about just 'doing her own business'.

xx Lektrogirl

P.S. But yerrr also a hilarious story. I am glad I have real girlfriends.

TWIN SISTERS

RELIGIOUS SISTERHOOD


Religious brotherhood, originally uploaded by Beniah Brawn.

I woke up thismorning and realised that last night that there are a few holes in my protective cape that need fixing, that when The Frenchman is pissed he is exactly like my father out in the workshop when I was 11, that I still can't stand it.

But yesterday on the whole wasn't a bad day - but I really felt like I needed to travel. So I decided to go to IKEA. It was surprisingly empty for a bank holiday weekend. I did go out there though in my Marni flats and my feet were killing me by the end of it all but I had a very exciting bus ride home which only added to my out of london experience. I also got to see Neasden at street level. Arrageddon or what has happened there!!?? I did notice another Booty Wine - the first in Camden - and then just down the road, BOOTY FASHIONS!! A shoe shop. Incredible. If Booty Carrell ever comes to London I think I will take him to Neasden to get his hair done at Aries Unisex hair salon.

So so I need the religious sisterhood of the lady gang. I was going to a car boot sale today with Cards but I feel kind of crest fallen after last night. I think I need to mend my red cloak.
