Day Dreaming

In one of those "How to be successful", books ,which obviously I would not understand ,I read that you should write down all your ideas. I never did ,but perhaps I should start. I mean the small light bulbs that pop into existence as you stare whey faced from the tube into the dark vortex , I have them all the time. Yesterday's crop for example….

It occurred to me for example that you could write a good play called “The Chain“. As I may have mentioned we have sold up in Islington and we are taking the next white flight to Lewes Naturally we are involved in a chain . In fact we have been involved in two ,the first having imploded due to at maggot fantasist. My idea was this. At the beginning of the chain you might have a first time buyer a young person ,or a retired person trading down. In the middle as the size of the property goes up, you meet the gradations of English Society who , I have discovered , are immediately recognisable by class right up to the seriously rich. They are linked by this chain of property , which has implications for society ,and yet they are at all other times separate . It would be a comic and bathetic treatment of archetypes and they would have to collide somehow . Where to take it I don’t know but the examples of disparates thrown into the dramatic crucible that immediately occurred to me were “ An Inspector calls “,” Stagecoach” and “Canterbury Tales “… Worth a short story ?


I have always hated what shampoo does to your hair . It makes it all silky and floppy and I don`t like it . In fact I don’t think many men like it as we see from the industrial strength gel on the loose in the average changing room nowadays . So…why not have a Shampoo called something like “ Soap Texture “ , leaving one’s Leonine cascades fine and upstanding, but with the masculine scent of Leather car Seat. I `ve got the advert and everything.

Soap it Sort it Use it
Any good ?

I have always been a day dreamer and I stare out of the office window now much as I did from the class window years ago. So much time has passed,so many small ideas?

Sod Islington. I am busily preparing a masterpiece of smut for Mutley's literary competition. Indeed, Croydonian and Sister Bridgit will play a major role in my oeuvre. I have "Convict bitches and the Tory apprentass" down as a working title.

Croydonian said...

N - sorry to bring you bad news, but there was a play based on that premise, and might even have been called 'The Chain'.

Yup, just confirmed. Written by Jack Rosenthal so therefore likely quite good.

IT - Watch out or I'll sic my lawyers on you.

Please? There has to be an antidote to Newmania's blog and I think you are it.

Newmania said...

Why does there have to be an antidote Lillith ?

Lilith said...

Of course your lovely Newmania, its just a yin/yang thing.

Philipa said...

Newmania is indeed lovely; a hunk - tall, gorgeous, intelligent and built! Rrrrumpf!

I don't want to give up blogging but I keep pissing PH off and I really don't want to. I honestly wish we could sort this out but he won't. It's his way or the highway. I've got about a week left.

Thanks for being nice tho Lilith, much appreciated :-)
