Today I received the order of these mugs I had used my stupid credit card to buy. Which was motherfucking awesome. But instead of buying useless shit like cosmetics and steam cleaners, I was mightily chuffed by this one. Because they are destined for people who want more than anything else to do what it says on the tin. I have kept one for myself (clearly) but bestowed the others on dear friends who write, who write words, books, blogs, novels, literature, music, stuff. The people who would motherfucking appreciate it. And that made me goddamn happy today.
And I have one final mug to bestow, and Sorry Lisa, for ruining the surprise, but it’s for you. I shall present it to you in Le Brussels in December. But you must not take it to work and you must only drink gin (or other hard liquor) out of it and only when you are doing your own writing. Kate and Kate (the other recipients) have already been briefed on this.
You can and should read Lisa’s new blog here. Because she is motherfucking brilliant. And I don’t (usually) use that word lightly.
Here is the actual address also: http://allthestuffandallthethings.wordpress.com/. So go there. Go there now!
