Still Here. Still Very Much a Plankton.

I haven’t completely disappeared, I promise. Have been concentrating on my children’s exams and not trying to find a husband. (Incidentally, trying or not trying makes no fucking difference).
An obvious thought occurs to me, as I read in the Times this morning of Kate Winslet and her new boyfriend. (I remember, bored while queuing for a millennium in my local bank not so long ago, spotting a strapline on the cover of the in-house magazine that proclaimed she was very happy being single. I thought at the time, Oh yeah, as if! And lo and behold! I am a big fan of Winslet – brilliant actress and beautiful and seemingly not a toss-pot like so many of her ilk – but given that she was single for all of about thirty seconds, that statement of hers must have ranked as one of her up-there Oscar-winning performances). I digress. Back to obvious thought. My latest (this morning’s) one is this: if you are attractive, men are attracted to you. If you are not, they are not.
Kate Winslet: new boyfriend. The Plankton: no new boyfriend, no boyfriend full stop, now or ever again. One, attractive. The other, not so much. In fact, the other about as attractive, obv, as a baboon’s arse.
It doesn’t get simpler than that.
Just got to face it.
