Strawberry Letter 23
Conversations from the studio #2.
I sit in my studio, doing my work all day. I'm seated beneath an ever present, ever watching webcam. To be honest, I forget it's there most of the time. That is until someone in one of the other studios in the basement looks up at me on the huge plasma screens and sees me doing something. And decides to chip in over talkback. Like today. Just as I tuck into a yoghurt...
"Lick the lid!"
"No! I discard the lid."
"Is that a fruit corner?"
"No, not so healthy. It's got crunchy bits"
"I like to dip into one side and then the other. Or do you just spill it across?"
"Yeah, I like to mix it all in together."
"Just watch me spill!"
I spill the white chocolate covered biscuits bits into the pink "strawberry" yoghurt. I mix it all up feverishly and devour a heaped spoonful of delicious gooey mixture.
"Is it good?"
"Very. My treat for today."
"Is it weird us watching you?"
"I'm kind of used to it by now..."
"You're like a one man Big Brother!"
"Yeah, except I don't win a prize at the end."
"Or end up in Heat Magazine."
"Thank fuck for that..."
My weird life.

Nine slices of 7 inch heaven and one blast from the past. The Glasto review is in the pipeline. Which is to say I haven't started it yet. But I've been busy! And look, I've added label tag things for this post. Let's see if that sticks.
Keep singing in the rain, gorgeous people.
