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

29 January - Tall Tales Night

Laughter at M’s night, much needed. Just make up a likely story that fits with your character and people will believe it's actaully true. Very inventive, and am impressed it's all done with no notes, like a monologue which I could never ever do w/o ending up round the houses, up a hill, across the sea etc. Jealous or Mr rethoric who cites 'Socratic irony' among his interest when I check him on the web. It sort of helps that his father was a politician and gave the kids weird Welsh names and probably made them discuss socratic irony round the dinner table when they were aged 5.
The Belgian Waffle woman performed too. On a previous occasion she once read one of her pieces and couldn’t stop giggling at own wit, together with the audience. Contagious, if not a bit juvenile. She's funny on blog but not that funny. Then again, I'm less funny than she is, so can't really complain about her much. Surprised to find out she's a mother, she seemed like a student to me, not that the two are esclusive.

Met the writer Naomi Alderman, and though have not read her at least I knew who she was, Toph was clueless. She has written a Dr Who book and Disobedience and new novel The Lessons. Quick wiki check and she’s a games writer. That’s why she knew so much about who does which voiceover on games! Must admit did a very uncharitable mental connection between her body shape (fat and unstylish) and her interests (games) and thought fat geek, it figures. Am sorry.... but am still vain. Would rather not have successful books published and be my shape than other way round. Well, that's my excuse then for lack of creative production. My pact with the devil....
