Sexy Hitcher

I seem to spend most of my time in the car now. Driving from Mom and Dads to home and work and back again. I even considered picking up a hitch hiker tonight just for some company who might talk about anything other than bloody cancer and illness.
Actually, if i'm honest i only considered it because he looked fit. A bit unwashed, but blonde hair and a bit hippyfied.
You don't see many Hitch hikers nowadays do you?. Well i don't anyway. Maybe i'm driving in the wrong (or right) places.

I didn't stop of course. The fantasy of some sexy stranger getting i my car sounds better than the reality. I'm a bit anal about clean and if he had any body oder whatsoever he'd have been out on his ear. Never mind him being a mad murderer.

In the news today: The Uprising in Libya and rumours that Colonel Gaddafi is on the run. Or at least that’s what it says in the paper. On telly he was sat in a Golf Cart with a brolly up telling the world he is still in Tripoli
In New Zealand there has been a major earthquake. At least 65 people are confirmed dead and there are fears this figure may rise to 300.

Worse still just next to this story there is news that Tess Daly (41) the female presenter of Strictly come dancing has the beginnings of ‘Turkey Neck’ according to the Daily Mail.
Truly Shocking I’m sure you’ll agree. And they wonder why people don't buy papers any more.

Actually i saw something about a book worth reading called 'stick it up your punter'. It's the story of a behind the scenes story of a Murdock newspaper here in the UK called the Sun and in particular what happened when a new editor called kelvin Mckenzie took over.
I went on Amazon to see if i could buy it cheap. The prices ranged from £5 to £40 and the delivery times started at a week through to three months. So you can sort of understand why electronic text is buggering up paper and print as well.

When was the last time anyone bought a mucky book ? Why would anyone want to buy a mucky book ?

There does be a regular horde of hitchikers on the Mancunian Way at the weekend.

my staff person bought a Amazon Kindle today. I must say it was pretty impressive. You are right about hitch hikers, not many out there any more..

Ass, grass or gas, nobody rides for free.

Mucky books are so last century but our local paki shop still stocks a wide range.
It's got to be for the old men, I have noticed some gay mags too.

Exactly, mucky mags and books, gosh the last time I bought one was when I was about 22 - damn that's so long ago. Thanks fuck for the digital age - at least these no danger of pages getting stuck together!

I haven't seen a hitch hiker for years, at least not in this country. Where are all the hitchers these days?

Loads a hugs.

I hope things are going well with your Dad.

Today at the boozery (i.e., package store, as we call it here, or off license as you'd say) there was a new chap working. Long story short: he's from Huddersfield. Of course he knows Halifax and Oldham, and thinks Halifax is beautiful. He especially mentioned the Piece Hall.

So, it's a small world after all.

Quiet over here. Hope that isn't a bad sign.

Thinking of you.
