So, what’s on my wordy wishlist. Too many books that will never get read? Likely, but let’s be positive. The words are falling away and in their place a glowing screen and fast typing fingers, with eyes that sink into stuff (stuff = dresses, videos about dogs, bread recipes, too high heels to walk in, vintage clothes from Utah that I cannot afford, knitting patterns that I will never knit, polaroid film I will never buy, vinyl wishlists that grow out of control) like eating unnecessary cake, or cherry fudge that you don’t really like but you bought it in Devon and it’s better you eat it than the house mouse. Right? Wrong. Let’s break some spines and stuff the words into our eyes – more pixels to make the picture clearer.
