A blast from the past !!

Sooo , So this is interesting ...

When I first started blogging in April , I wrote this story about this guy who I used to work with up until I lost my parents , read the story ; It just goes to show what dickheads people can be in the music Biz .

Ok , anyway , I'm on the train to work yesterday afternoon and I get a call on my mobile . The following takes place in real time ... Ha !!

Bring Bring ( mobile ringing sound ... ) .... Bring !!

Me : " Ello . "

? : " O hey ... it's P "

Me : " Who ? "

P : " It's P , remember we worked together a few years ago on all those adverts and stuff "

Of course I fukin know , but am I letting on... Am I fuck !

Me : " P ... Oh yeah mate , how r u ? "

P : " Yeah .. Fine , I got your number from T , I've been trying to get hold of you for ages "

Now , this could be true coz I frequently change mobile numbers to " Weed out the chaf " as one would say ..

Me : " Oh yeah , what can I do you for ? "

P : " We really need to meet up as I owe you some royalties from all those adds , not a fortune , but not to be sniffed at , or up ! Haw haw , either . " ... Ha , Funny as fuck that joke mate : I pissed myself !!!

Me : " Ok .. let's do lunch and have a chat then mate "

P : " Ok , my P.A's away till Friday but I'll get him to ring you and set a date "

Me : " Ok "

A few formalities followed .... End of conversation .... Click !!

Now , this is interesting .

I'm all one for receiving money that I'd forgotten about ... Actually I remember fine well that he owes me money ... But : Sometimes I'd rather miss a few quid than " Deal with fukin shit that makes yer fukin blood boil " ya know !!

So , I'll go and have dinner and be his best mate for an evening because " I like a bit of fukin sport now and again " it's " really good for the soul " .

I'm just wondering though , " Why the fuck ? After all this time ... No really mate , What the fuck do you fukin want ? "

So , anyway .. I'll go and I'll keep you all posted ...

Ummm .... I'm intrigued

And does my leg still hurt..... Yes it fukin does !

And is it still cold in London .... Yes it fukin is .... Freeeezing cold .

Ok , It's late .. I'm going to bed

Bye .

WML's right. You don't need to waste your time having lunch with some prick and toss false niceties back and forth.

Get him to send you a cheque... and then get a new phone number.

add another American woman to your fan club!

Sadly, I have yet to find the hook-up here and I must get vicariously high off of your posts...

I've gone from being productive certified cannabis using patient to whatever is the opposite of that - I haven't even caught a whiff of the stuff since moving to Nice and you just know there has to be every drug imaginable here...

Well, enough tears from me - just writing to say I love your writing and enjoy all your comments on music (technical and otherwise) - at least the alcohol here is excellent...

Keep your friends close but your enemies closer....

Rekindle contact with this chap - but control the relationship.

I hear ya ... After much delberation , I'm thinking that I'll hear this guy out , But i'll be hard pressed to work with him again .. In fact , I'm pretty much done with advertising ; I never have and never will get on with advertising types ..

But , will I be lured back by the money ?
