TENNIS CLUB

Who would have thought that I would love tennis so much! Today was a great series of matches. The best part is how flexible with the rules we can be – “It’s still in.. Still in… Ahhh no you killed it!!!” – based on the ball still bouncing and it’s in rule and how much you can work the ball before it dies. Mrs Kipling is even talking about week-a-day matches in Regents Park so I think I will buy myself a racquet. I want a neon green one like Duke because I think I can work some incredible outfits with it.

It was then back to play the usual other sport – Mario Kart – with a bottle of Cava accompanied by PomBear and grubby fingers:

I hope all my Sundays this summer are a bit like this.

I also got to talk to Mum today.

MY CREW


Poodles!, originally uploaded by Tri_Poodle.

How we roll on the regular.

I’m going toot, toot, beep, beep, pulling up on them wheels now
All black on black body got it shining much like a seal now
Got them cars in my garage no less than a mill now
Kells about to take the bar and set it real high
Double take Double take when I roll up to the club
Playas they plays us when I walk up in the club
I got them shades on doing about 75
Just call it speed racer cause I’m rolling in that marc 5
Yall niggas aint fucking with me and I put a mill on it
Niggas and Bitches they lie but home boy them stacks don’t
R&B Boss hustling like Rick Ross
Man my flow is so raw niggas don’t piss me off
I’m a playa homie and that’s a well known factor
Plus the wheels on the coupe got lookin like a tractor
Take my ice hold it up
Then my city toss it up
Chi-town summer time Kells got traffic backed up

I’m totally HTML HML right now working on two websites. One has a problem with ONE image. The other problem is that there are more changes than necessary.

For a breather, I managed to get down the road to my favourite French place in North London for a Croque today. At Le Péché Mignon on Ronald’s Road N5 the garden conversion has taken place and it is super cute out there and a perfect place to eat and drink – if it wasn’t for the agonising conversation two ‘musicians’ were having at a nearby table. They were talking like OTT MySpace pages for themselves and organising gigs at places where a lot of industry people go ’cause they were more important’ and one was bitching out the other for having gigs of their own without the whole band. Blah blah. I shared a table with a very brainy looking bald man with freckles on his head who was doing the Guardian crossword in silence. And even though he smoked, I enjoyed his company a lot and I felt as if I was learning things about the world just by osmosis while I sat near him.

My Croque Monsieur was PERFECT and was served with Lamb’s lettuce and not the Brer Rabbit lettuce I hate to much. And I think you will agree it is more obvs I’m starting to enjoy using Mrs Kipling’s camera.

In BONUS ROUND news today, my 70’s German jug arrived in the mail today from Sabine! Too thrilled!! I realise it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but these heavy gross glazes I love so much and remind me a lot of my mother’s ceramic work from back when I was growing up. I remember being allowed to go and sit in with the big kids at the primary school at Challa Gardens when I was just in kinder while Mum gave extra classes in pottery to the kids and I felt so cool.

Not too unlike some of the ceramics I saw on the ward at the Royal Free Hospital, LOL. I love art rooms and cemeteries – they seem very homely to me cause of my mum.

MEGA LOL

Here is my friend Caz trying to be like me with the bra shot… Oh no.. hang on… LOL hahaha

ROTFLOL

Mum called this morning and I told her was really sad this morning feeling like I had nothing to get out of bed for today. I can’t tell you the real reasons why other than to say XXCENSOREDXX has banned me from talking about XXCENSOREDXX here and another whole part of my life is totally XXCENSOREDXX anyway…

and here I was at the New Zealander party have a whale of a time.

But then I get up this morning to see the world has been moving on with out me and see visions such as Caz with a twisted bra. Lovely.

P.S. Alex T asked me on Sunday night what my favourite episode of C.S.I. is and I couldn’t choose but now I know. It is an episode in season 5 of C.S.I. Crime Scene Investigation [the Vegas one] called COMMITTED set in a mental prison where a guy gets murdered by the mother of one of the patients who is masquerading as a nurse so that she can continue her Jocasta complex relationship with her mentally ill son. They crack the case when Grissom uses a really great piece of far fetched technology [LOL] – audio archaeology or something. The son was making a clay vase when his nurse mother came in to demand that he finish it with the guy who was murdered and apparently the sound waves of their conversation were picked up in the wet clay. The C.S.I. team were able to pick up the sound recording using lasers, processing it through something that looked a little bit like Sony Acid Pro but with a jazzier skin and they all realised who was banging who.

LOOK MUM NO HANDS!

Mum called this morning just as I was thinking of her, while I was in the kitchen making a cup of tea. I thought of her cause I trod on something that reminded me of an umbilical cord from one of our old dog Winnie’s puppies. Winnie was a great dog. My sister still has the plaster cast of Winnie’s leg and this is like maybe 14 years ago. The cast isn’t very big. Winnie was a corgi. So – there is Mum chatting away telling me that one of the teachers at her school was checking out my MySpace page and Flickr for some project for her class and then Mum started going on about this blog. I was like “Oh god Mum PLEASE don’t read my blog.” And she was like “Yes some of it is quite shocking.” And I was like “But I write it and don’t imagine you are reading it. I don’t think you and your friends are going to sit there and read it. I write like it is all the stuff me and Dad used to talk about in the garage. Boys’s talk.” And she was all like totally casual “Oh God Emma, you’ve always been like that. Don’t worry.” So now I’m not. I didn’t bring up the time she and my sister quoted sections of my journal back to me over the dinner table when I was 17 [see it was at this moment I realised there was no point to having any shame.] I also didn’t was to mention either that she was part of the most embarrasing moment of my life envolving me, my ex boyfriend Nick Dunn and making eye contact with her through the bedroom window at a rather crucial moment… Talk about getting instantly floppy [if I was a guy.]

So, HI MUM!! How you doing? How cold is it in Tassie? Hope you keeping your map o’ Tas warm! Do your headlights go on when you go outside. Herrrr herrrr herrrr.

Check me out in Bahrain in 1997!!

Those were the sneakers in the background that cost £120 which was A LOT in those days. Sneakers were never that much then.

Mum, I know you are proud of me whatever I do, even if what I do isn’t what most people want their daughters to be doing. I’m proud of you when you told the bank to get stuffed cause you didn’t want to wear tights.
