26/10/92: I wanna `pooter! (How) can I afford it? Bought `Journey' after shave this morning, it's very smelly! The blurb says "Journey - a powerful accord of precious woods and spices, a symphony of cedarwood, sandalwood, coriander, pepper and nutmeg... The most important journey a man can make is the one to discover himself... from the striking citrus elements of the top note, through the lightly textured florals to the warm, mossy amber signature..." Well, okay. Yeah, it's pleasant and it's nice to notice all the elements, but for fuck's sake it's just a smell!!! Now how the hell can I get 1000?

Xmas eve: What a fucker of a day - and I have still got a gig to do! Began with a hangover (or was itI?), with Danny Baker's Xmas bash on the radio. I was angry again on the tube, angry with cretins calling my name at work, then angry being driven home by Paul with the gear, then angry because I had to go out and shop for cards & presents, then I fucking FELL OVER AND GRAZED MY KNEE, ripping my jeans, then disappointed because the coverdisks with PCFormat mag wouldn't load, and now I'm off to the Vic! Sonofabitch!!!
