I have no idea why I associate Boris Johnson with rock pools, but apparently I do. At least four of the pieces I am working on associated with Boris are related to rock pools. I have a carpet, a box and a trunk on wheels, a small table all with rock pool tendencies.
Wolfish, one of the remaining David Wolfe pieces, is swimming in a coral reef in a tank, but apparently in my head Boris is all about rock pools. Perhaps the psychologists could have a think on that one. It is probably something to do with sex, although I am not aware of it. Most of my work is related to emotion rather than sex in terms of whichever form things take, but the colours are usually a give-away in terms of the sexual element.
The furniture progress has been slow but Jemima Khan is going to be spectacular, Iain Duncan Smith is a lot of work, and Theresa May is yet to get off the ground due to lack of funds. Darius Guppy is on pause as he needs a lot of sanding work.
I am starting to get psyched up for the book, so I will be doing some reading shortly in anticipation of Lucifer Ogilvie. Not to be too cynical about it, but it would help a lot if Boris likes it, so I hope I can at least persuade him to read it when the time comes. My ideas seem to be developing somewhat, so hopefully it will be a funny and clever take on Conservatism through the eyes of the alternative Boris.
The games are on hold at the moment, I managed to salvage them from yet another broken computer. (my cat is very fond of computers, which is why I seem to go through five or six laptops a year, although she does not seem to share the same love of the PC).
I am seriously considering a short story about racism, since whoever manages such things has successfully persuaded us that protecting our own rights involves maligning other people’s. Mind your Language, a programme which is usually denounced as racist in the UK, is massively popular in India and Pakistan.
