Self-indugent post

Sorry, I've not been on my best form recently. I have suspected for some time that the realtionship was not going to last, even to the deadline that we had set (her leaving uni). I had thought that, maybe, compromises could be arranged at that point.

However, I am now looking forward to the next 21 year old student lovely lady that I meet. Anyone got any suggestions of how to meet them? Adelante might be an interesting conversation, even though I don't think that it's a match made in heaven, somehow.

Could I just quickly say "thank you" to all of you who have been so kind (I'll put links in later): MatGB (when are you going to write a piece for The Kitchen, eh?), NHS Blog Doctor (John has been recently, rightly recognised as a god), Tim Worstall (I liked him a lot. And thank you, Timmy, for my Portuguese adventure...), Pete Gray (also a very nice man), Deogolwulf, The P-G (I think that he's still assessing me. I think that it was the long-hair wot dun it. However, he also came up with some very interesting economic points about the Citizens Basic Income which I hadn't considered and definitely want to air*), Arthur (thank you for lunch, I enjoyed it so much. Are you up for a repeat? My treat this time. Why not bring the P-G?), Misha and all Rotties everywhere and, very recently, Katy Newton (whom I recommend by the way). All of these people have been very kind, or simply cheerful and interesting over the last few months in particular.

So, I'm no longer in a relationship: time to concentrate on the company. I have high hopes fpr my business and now it's time to concentrate on them. I will, Boris-style, ask for your feedback: I trust your judgement. Those of us who write and think here, in the political blogosphere, often disagree; I do like the fact that we can disagree and yet still be, I think, a community. There are a very few of my friends who can give as good as they get (Rhetorically Speaking, Tiny Judas (who should blog a lot more) and The Fluffy Econmist, amongst others, I know to be exceptions to that statement). However, in the meantime I have just imbibed vast quantities of pure MDMA and am feeling pretty good, frankly. But not tremendously coherent...

So, cheers all! Here's to a better 2006!

DK,

Amen to that.

Hmmmm - I wish you well because relationships are a mixed blessing we all bear.........but while I 100% subscribe to the belief that what unites us is greater than what divides us, sometimes what divides us is better acknowledged and laughed at! Cheer up though, you've got your t-shirt business to focus on.....

And Hearts won which causes me irrational and disproportionate happiness.

Give us a shout if you need lunch company again. Keep well.

"Anyone got any suggestions of how to meet them?" Things might have changed since my day, but it may still be true that ineffective ways to meet them include taking an interest in rugby, jazz, or science fiction. Why not try to get yourself a reputation as a good listener, particularly as good at listening to women? Introductions will follow, or so an aging Lothario assures me.

Yes, buck up, old horse. (And I do not want to see you turning to poetry.)
