Fuck It

June 21, 2013 § 37 Comments

People coming round tonight.

I intend to drink a lot of vodka and doubtless make an arse of myself in front of a 43 year old twinkle.

Not too much vodka, obv.

But enough.

    Just pace yourself. Have a pleasant evening!

  • Kelly M. says:

    Awww. It’ll be ok. Enjoy yourself.

  • Chris says:

    Ah, plankey, how your trials and tribulations add to the gaiety of the nation.

    Now seriously, I am doing an OU English course and was wondering if I could use your blog for my end of module project ??

  • Simon says:

    Don`t listen to any of them ! Go for it tomorrows headache is ages away!! x

  • Bambi says:

    Simon has saved me the trouble of commenting.
    ‘Pace yourself’??? Ah, now….
    Go for it – and as we would say in Eire; ‘Feck the begrudgers’ (I know, the word does not exist in proper English, but it is expressive, hey…)
    PS. I have a lot to ‘report’ about London, Plankton and the dating opportunities. MIss P, are you allowed to say how far/near you are from/to London? I would be curious to read of others’ experiences here…
    PPS. Neurofen Plus is the biz for a hangover; and a Crunchie (the sugar); and a packet of Tayto (the salt).
    ThatwouldbeWalkershereintheUK 🙂

    • The Plankton says:

      I have never ever stated where I am, this whole blog. It’s odd how many readers think I have. They have inferred and then suppose they read it as fact somewhere along the line. They didn’t. People have drawn their own conclusions, and may wish to put in their penny’s worth of guesses on this comments page…? Pxx

      • justanotherman says:

        OK – I’ll plump for Holland Park – not that you’ll ever confirm or deny. If you’re too shy about your age when you could easily lie and if you wont even tell us how much younger SYT is then it aint going to happen is it.
        Holland Park ? You just remind me of someone I once met who said she lived “in the nice part of Holland Park” that was many years ago I suppose its all “nice” now.

      • The Plankton says:

        Fascinating. Holland Park because I remind you of that someone you met who lived there, or for other reasons too? Pxx

      • zoe says:


      • The Plankton says:

        Good guess, but no. Pxx

      • zoe says:

        Your writings do suggest west London, P. You also live in a house, yet claim not to have much money; not so likely therefore that you’re in Notting Hill or Holland Park On one occasion you mentioned your “village”. So my pin on the map goes for Chiswick…

      • The Plankton says:

        A good guesstimate, and in many ways, you are not far of the mark. Pxx

      • justanotherman says:

        No – just gut feeling – and with P’s “anonymity paranoia” there might be a few red herrings on houses and locations anyway.

      • SMF says:

        P, are you asking or enquiring as to whether any of us here know more about you than we are letting on? Too many clues have been given away unwittingly I think. Anonymity is very hard to maintain. A trail is left however well you think you’ve covered your tracks. I enjoy your blog and want it to continue so I’m saying nothing.

      • The Plankton says:

        Oh good. I much appreciate your courtesy. I have no desire to be outed. If I were, I would immediately stop and crawl into a hole and never write another word. pxx

      • justanotherman says:

        Oh all right – I’ll be quite specific :-

        23 Railway Cuttings, East Cheam

        Quite apart from outing you it will test your age 🙂

      • The Plankton says:

        Sorry. You’ve lost me here. What are you on about? Pxx

      • justanotherman says:

        As I say – shows your age – famous comedy address – google it.

  • malcolm says:

    Go easy on the vodka Planky. It’s all too easy to wake up the next day feeling like you’ve made things worse.

  • EmGee says:

    Best medicine – just keep staying involved with friends, and don’t dwell on the latest hurt.

    Have fun!

  • therugbymom says:

    One bottle/glass of water between each alcoholic beverage should keep you hydrated and sufficiently “paced”. This is what they say – I’ve never paced myself before. It would be a real mood killer if you were to lose your dinner when you’re trying to get busy with the new guy. And it’s always scary when you wake up and have to call your friend to ask how you got home. Especially when they start to fill you in on all of your forgotten antics from the night before! Just sayin’ – nobody wants to lose time.

    Have fun!

  • James B says:

    P – mind the drinking with those happy pills. A lot of alcohol can make you feel really crap, REALLY crap.

    Still, good to see the fighting spirit and – look – another twinkle. You seem far from finished in the dating world. It’s amazing really the change in you, even if you cannot see it. You are the “Former Plankton” nowadays. You may not have the relationship you want, but you have re-discovered your sexual and social potency. Good for you! An inspiration for everyone. A little pain though is a sign that we are still alive.

    Keep writing this blog P. It’s brilliant in its truthfulness.

    • amouette says:

      Yes, James B. Or as Jonathan Franzen put it – ” Pain hurts but it doesn’t kill . When you consider the alternative – an anesthetized dream of self-sufficiency…- pain emerges as the natural product and natural indicator of being alive in a resistant world. To go through life painlessly is to have not lived.”

  • James B says:

    I go for Shepherds Bush/Hammersmith.
