First time I woke up today, I had a swollen belly, churning spitefully with acids, and was violently sick, twice.

Second time, I had no belly whatsoever. It must be the wheat.

I haven’t eaten any wheat for going on a fortnight. Everything is made of wheat. Certainly everything lunchy. I guess I lived on lunchy most of my life.

I can’t see today – my contacts fell out last night, and my glasses are broken, and the blutac that held them together just don’t seem to cut it anymore. I guess its pretty interesting, this whole guessing one’s way about thing. I am relying on instinct. Usually, my instinct is ace, but I guess it must stink sometime.

London, it has to be said, is prettly bleak, through the blur. But some things, even in the grubby dark of the pre-dawn, look beautiful. People spend their whole lives looking for clarity. I don’t know if its worth it.

One: Bulldog Broadband are assholes and I am canceling my direct debit, They have wasted 5 hours of my week, and have ensured I do not have broadband at my happy new home and shall not for ages. This is hampering my work to a crazy degree and I am livid.

Two: That I rely so much on the internet is a worry.

Three: Wiley has quit rapping.

Four: Bill Gates and his evil crew have upped their spamming campaign to crazy new levels. It is disturbing me immensely.

Five: It was Jeremy’s birthday on MONDAY. He is STILL drunk. Expect the celebrations to go on for a while, still.

Six: The Hypocrite video is coming along excellently.

Seven: The ATD headline show at London’s 93 Feet East will be a different affair to usual. It will be me and some of my rapping friends, performing songs from the mixtapes. If you have any requests, leave a comment below, and we will see what we can do.

Eight: I haven’t read a newspaper, or a news website, in what seems like a month. If any of you bright spark fancy filling me in, in a sentence, please do so, again, in the comments section below.

Nine: I am going to be in Berlin in the latter half of February. I shall bring a mike and a laptop, in case anyone wants me to busk for them.

Ten: My Grauniad blogging continues.

Eleven: Keith, I found my digital pen, I shall do your tattoo this week.

Apologies for the lack of communique, oh my people – I have been moving house, which takes up far more of one’s life than one ever seems to remember, despite one having done it more times than one has eaten hot vegetables.

Enough of the ones.

So, I have yet to be set up with broadband, so stuff is likely to be a bit sketchy for a little while. Bit it is a good thing – I have a new surrounding which will spark off my brain in all manner of funny directions. Last night, for example, I got stuck in one of those nightmare vortexes – I kept dreaming, then waking up, and talking to my lover, then realising I was still dreaming, and so on, and so on, until I was utterly confused as to whether I would ever wake up, and right now I am not sure I have, although I have cleaned my old flat today, which was gruelling, and would make for a pretty crappy dream.

Anyway, I must attend to a lot of spam now. Speak soon, you.
