    I'll read the first twenty pages today. See how I get on. Not really my sort of thing but why not. It's going to be a long winter.

    So just to confirm, I am allowed to take acid?

    I'm excited for this new productive phase in my life.

    Lately I've been handing over decisions to other people, having read that it's a good idea in a psychology book.

    I think the idea is sound. I certainly seem incapable of making my own decisions.

    The thing about acid is that it is like that thing your mum
    Says about be careful the wind will change and you'll get stuck like that.

    The psychedelics put you on a new reality track. If you go in as a degenerate it will often cement that degeneracy. If you go in pure and strong it will cement that and you will level up.

    This is why it's important to give it respect and not treat it like a party drug. This is why I have a rule of not drinking or smoking during the comedown. Go in clean come out clean. It seems superstitious to most people but they have very little experience so it's best to ignore the m

    I get tons of shagging, thank you very much.

    Um. Or I did, until recently. The baby is basically going to arrive any day now.

    I'm anticipating being far too exhausted to have much of a libidio at all for the coming few months.

    If you can take acid after a significant amount of time off the weed and booze it will be a completely different experience. You will be initiated into the Great Mysteries. I can personally garuntee this

    Drunkenness at Christmas is compulsory for anyone who isn't Plymouth Brethren or Salafist.

    I started drinking one Christmas whilst suffering from flu and I think it's about as close as I've gotten to feeling like the undead.

    I found it tough to start with but I'm beginning to sink into it. I liked what he said about how he so enjoyed being kissed goodnight that he'd hope for the moment to be delayed for as long as possible.

    The sentences (moncrieff translation) are so long, you can't read it without concentrating, and it becomes surreal, how much he packs in, e.g.

    "when I must needs take most pains to receive it with due formality, I had to snatch it, to seize it instantly and in public, without even having the time or being properly free to apply to what I was doing the punctiliousness which madmen use who compel themselves to exclude all other thoughts from their minds while they are shutting a door, so that when the sickness of uncertainty sweeps over them again they can triumphantly face and overcome it with the recollection of the precise moment in which the door was shut."

    As with Henry James

    The length of the sentences, clause upon clause stuffed in

    Gives you the impression of a mind that never stops thinking, never stops refining

    As does the jumping around in time
