Oh baby, baby I want to get wit' ya, an' take ya picture. That's how I imagine the old birds from the Boundary Hotel speaking. They were standing around, guzzling down the house wine, and the darling to the left, she was dancing. By dancing I mean throwing her frail gangling limbs about like it was circa 1979, when the lanky convulsive moves of Joy Division was the acceptable dance standard of the underground indie scene. Her skin was the kind of leather I want my couch to be in; and she had less teeth than Paris Hilton has brain cells. It was quite possibly the most entertaining thing I'd seen all week. And I hear you say, what were you doing at The Boundary? Why, I was watching my workmate's band with one of my roommates and his girlfriend (how sociable is that!). Believe you me, it's not a place I frequent. But with such amusing and varied characters, I'm now reconsidering my attitude.
So, besides paying out senior citizens, I have been writing an ethics essay (ha ha) on genetic modification. It's got me thinking, so I pose you this question: If you could genetically enhance your children so that they never get acne, would you do it?
What else has happened, well I'm so entirely poor at the moment that I've been eating peanut butter sandwiches and Mi Goreng (Indonesian two-minute noodles) pretty much exclusively. But as a result of my poverty, I no longer can afford junk food. Which my skin and the rest of my body is probably thanking me for. In fact, I think I've lost about 4kg in the past month. I've decided that I will write an eBook: Fat?: How To Make Poverty Work For You!, or: Peanut Butter and Noodles: Diet Secrets Revealed. It can be yours instantly for the low, low price of $4.95*
Today, I have also been a good boy and Selsunned my face. It's so insanely itchy right now, and I can't stop scratching. I hope I don't aggravate it too much. But generally when it's flaky it fades off pretty quickly. So hopefully it'll be clear soon (so I can visit The Boundary looking my best!). My skin is really oily right now too, I think because I haven't had zinc/fish oil in a couple of days. I've popped a pimple between my eyes, it was swollen and ready to burst though (ha ha I'm sure you really wanted to know that)... I think I'll just continue smothering my face in AHA for a while, hopefully this will be my interim cure-all.
