The brunch was surprisingly enjoyable - just benny and me and our partners and a nice lady. For once there were no deifheids invited. Amazing what a difference it makes, without the incessant drone of self-promotion. You can actually savour the food instead of seething through gritted teeth.
Of course, if I was a better person I would get on with everyone, like Jesus or politicians.
I'm reading three books, including two autobiogs in parallel: Keith Richards, and the NSC benny hill. The other book is by a Brit doctor called Dalrymple, about his years of working in prisons and schemes. Amazing how many NPD sufferers he meets.
