Show us your Manson Lamps


When people start to complain that you haven’t posted in over a week, it’s kinda flattering.

Well, actually, it’s really flattering.

I’ve been pretty busy. I’m currently organising recording my EP and I’m a bit swamped at my admin job. My internet went down at home yesterday (on the day I usually try to write a decent entry) and I spent most of it at a friend’s place as I’ve been roped into being her personal trainer. We stretch and grunt together (in the cleanest way possible) and end up killing our abs. Then we watch the next two episodes of The X Files (she is up to Season 5 and getting through it slowly), and I head home.

I’m currently reading Helter Skelter, The Manson Murders, except the copy I’m reading has the infamous “Manson Lamps” (tm. Pamie) photo on the cover. I mentioned this to my mother, expecting her to roll her eyes at me, as I am always reading something like this – conspiracies, JFK, morbid subject matter.. but she just nodded and said, “Your father would like that.”

I can just picture my Dad in bed with his glasses on (or even Mum’s, which he has been using of late), lying on his right side with the book under his lamp, reading intently, with Charles Manson’s wide-eyed face staring out at me in the doorway. Hee.

A more substantial entry is coming tomorrow. I’m a bit too busy with work today, and I don’t know how they’d feel about me spending all of my work time today here (though I am always surfing a lot anyway). Hell, it’s nearly lunchtime! Time to go home, make a sandwich and read more creepy tales of just how twisted Sadie Mae Glutz was. Fun!
