Diary of Lisa Taylor, reluctantly 42 (and a half)

Or.. 'f.ck me I'm forty.. two.. and a half', though can look 38 on a - not so deluded - good day. Or 'How to reconcile a well experienced mind trapped in a still - but for how long? – youthful body.' Don't have the 30somethings angst/problems, neither have the resigned (?) ageing baby-boomers in safe family territory outlook yet. Here's how I cope, one day all sexy women will get old... but never invisible. © Lisa Taylor 2005/6/7/8/9. Jeez.. so much for the 42 and-a-half delusion

6th January - Activists & Djs

S. is in town from NYC with young son and mother of O. portentuosly named child (but not his partner, was a one off, have written about them before). He only has time for us at 10pm one evening so we go visit at his parents. Enquire after mother who has had cancer and recovered and discover that the week she got the all clear she was run over in Sloane St by a van and ended up broken and in intensive care for weeks thereafter. Truly... unlucky.

Trust S. to go out with noteworthy people. We enquire after the Cuban ballerina who was his g/riend last time we were in this parlour. No, that's gone. He didn't actually fancy her. Now he's wiuth the daughter of well known american lawyer cum activist from the 60's and 70s who worked a lot with black panthers etc. He's dead now but daughters have made a docu about him and S met one of them at some Sundance style festival. How sweet. He's got one himself on a friend of George Bush so they can talk politics in bed no doubt. As ever we wonder how he's managed to pay for this docu who's used several years of his life but we remember the trust fund. Oh and he tells hilarious stories of working on some episode of American Wifeswap to pay a few bills.

As we leave he tells us his old Holland park flat is rented out to a radio one dj, SM who has already caused a number of complaints for noise.
