Yeah. An actual update.
Oh man, there’s too much to keep up with lately. My life is so scattered. I can’t even keep up with Tumblr!
Still, I’m here now. I’ll be making up for lost time by marking MY FAVOURITE ACTOR* OF ALL TIME’S birthday over on t’other Tumblr today. Then this weekend I shall get around to replying to the lovely people who have left messages and questions and what not.
And there will be Tumblr action again. Both there and very possibly here too OMG I BET YOU CAN’T WAIT THE EXCITEMENT THE EXCITEMENT…. oh, alright. Well, have a biscuit while you’re waiting.
*You know this one by now.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

Oh, dear neglected Tumblr. C’mere. I still need to figure out what to do with you, don’t I?
Have been contemplating doing some kind of shoespam. Or maybe my adventures in hair colour. Or just generally the obnoxious shit that I call outfits, because people seem to like them. And then other part of me says well, that’s all terribly self indulgent, flippant and superficial. Even if you manage to shoehorn something in about the human condition and the absurdity of the cosmos at the same time. And then the other half replies, “Er, isn’t that what Tumblr’s all about? Huh?”.
Ah, as you can see I have such levels of conviction in everything I do.
