so. i had my fortune told by a parrot. i was walking along the south bank last weekend and i found a woman sitting at a little stall with two parrots perched in front of her. i asked if the parrots could tell me my fortune and the woman said they could and asked me which parrot i wanted to have tell it to me. i chose jenny the parrot, the yellow one on the left in picture. and then jenny the parrot picked a bit of paper out of the fortune tray for me with her beak and handed it to the woman, who then handed it to me.
i think the fortune begins fairly accurately. i might not be that young anymore, but i do love singing, even though i'm not that good at it always. i've mostly enjoyed being in love too. and it's good to know that i get to beat it if it ever stands in my way. and i'm quite excited about being alive for so long. i've always thought i'd quite like being old because i like doing crosswords but i never have enough time to do them. so it's nice to know i live until i'm eighty four. i'll have time to read all the books i never have time to read too.
i don't really believe in marriage so it was a surprise to know that i end up getting married. and i don't know anyone called georgia at the moment, so i guess i haven't met my wife yet. i really hope we get on. i guess i should be excited about that. i hope i don't call her george though. i don't think i'd like to marry a george.
and apparently the numbers along the bottom should win me the lottery at the weekend. so all in all, the future looks quite bright for me now. i can relax. there's plenty of time to make this third album. i don't need to worry about dying before it's finished. it really is a weight off my mind.
