anti-social socks
Neil suggested that people, "Tell me the things you own that you'd rather your friends didn't know about." My list is things I own that other people wish I didn't - I have no shame, so there's no worries about sharing with friends.
Where to begin...
  • socks. These socks were my pride and joy I used to wear them at parties as a talking point. I bought them in Northampton, MA and they were special. First, they were knee high; second, they were like gloves - with each individual toe catered for; and, third, they were furry. Imagine sticking your feet into a pair of cocker spaniels, that's how they both looked and felt. These socks were showstoppers. TA found them physically repellent, after some heated discussion and a few attempts at converting him by placing my spaniels in his lap or stroking him with them, my spaniel socks went to the dog house in the sky.

  • t shirts. I thought wearing novelty print t-shirts to bed was acceptable, what else are they good for after all. TA took to calling them my chastity t-shirts.

  • A-Ha's back catalogue

  • I think this might become an occasional series.

    Thanks Jamie!

    The Fool Card
    You are the Fool card. The Fool fearlessly begins
    the journey into the unknown. To do this, he
    does not regard the world he knows as firm and
    fixed. He has a seemingly reckless disregard
    for obstacles. In the Ryder-Waite deck, he is
    seen stepping off a cliff with his gaze on the
    sky, and a rainbow is there to catch him. In
    order to explore and expand, one must disregard
    convention and conformity. Those in the throes
    of convention look at the unconventional,
    non-conformist personality and think What a
    fool. They lack the point of view to understand
    The Fool's actions. But The Fool has roots in
    tradition as one who is closest to the spirit
    world. In many tribal cultures, those born with
    strange and unusual character traits were held
    in awe. Shamans were people who could see
    visions and go on journeys that we now label
    hallucinations and schizophrenia. Those with
    physical differences had experience and
    knowledge that the average person could not
    understand. The Fool is God. The number of the
    card is zero, which when drawn is a perfect
    circle. This circle represents both emptiness
    and infinity. The Fool is not shackled by
    mountains and valleys or by his physical body.
    He does not accept the appearance of cliff and
    air as being distinct or real. Image from: Mary
