…it’s all about ‘comfort’… how yeez ‘wear’ stuff…and not just clothing… #TBSU…

…during the course of my career it was necessary to do a lot of business travel… mostly abroad… pastures foreign… sum’times, it was a bit like, it’s Tuesday, it must be soup, it must be Belgium… it’s Thursday, it must be sirloin steak, it must be Geneva… and so on… one country pretty much looks like the next when yeez are on the move… an airport, a hotel, a bed, a taxi or limo to another airport, etc, etc… by the time this ol’ Jurassic had done his gazillion air miles of flying hours (days/weeks/months/years), it had boiled down to ‘comfort’… what I call ‘wearing’ a place… a hotel fr’example, some of yeez who follow this blog will know I have a wee writing corner in the lobby of the Jumeirah Etihad Towers Hotel in Abu Dhabi, and very grand it is too… but it’s not about the swank of the place… it’s about the ‘comfort’ I feel about sitting in it… I do the same when I’m in London… there’s a little coffee shop around the corner from where I normally billet… nothing posh, but I ‘wear’ the place well… the same thing goes for being on the SOSYAL NETWURKIN circuit… there’s stacks of garbage on there, which if I chose to, I could let it make me rattled… but I don’t… instead, I elect to find my ‘comfort’ with the people whose posts I enjoy… ‘comfort’ again… I ‘wear’ their virtual friendship like a pair of ‘falling-to-bits-but-can’t-possibly-be-thrown-away-yet’ slippers…


…for we quill-scrapers, I think it can also boil down to our scribbling patterns… some are morning creatives, others peddle their wares better in the dusk, and some nutters belt at it 24/7… ‘comfort’ in the WURK routines, that’s called… when I’m in the company of actual people (yeez know they do exist outside of the internet, don’t yeez?), I switch to ‘auto-comfort’ mode… some folks I just simply walk away from… others I keep close… ‘comfort’ in friendships… so what are yeez all ‘wearing’ this week?… see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  2. You must remember the old joke about the man away from home rings up and is told the dog dies….how he suggests he’s told these things gently like starting with Rover is on the roof. Next phone call, Granny is on the roof..
    Well it’s like this Seumas, you have to break things to me gently. Not just suddenly spring news like People exist outside the internet. That’s shocking. Ha fooled you. it isn’t really shocking as I know it can’t be true.
    People, real? Oh, I’m wetting myself laughing you robot you.

  3. Completely understand what you’re saying Seumas. I like the library late at night with the streetlights twinkling in the background and just letting my imagination loose.

    I actually mingled with real people today Seumas at my library event. I think a few ladies of advanced years found out more about the prison system than they were bargaining for. So I ‘wore’ Laurie the entertainer and left my grizzly bear slippers at home. 😉

  5. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    Always interesting to read Seumas Gallacher’s ‘blether’ – we all have our comfort zone and people who are invited in for varying lengths of stay …
