Fad Crafting

Well the Portsmouth thing didn't really take off. i spent a week there and then one day the following week, as it happens i have a new project to work on in Richmond and so will not have to live in a hotel. it's a small mercy in some ways.

i just read over the Hotel I/II posting and to be honest i don't remember writing a big chunk of it, the whole section beginning: "This wary lady is flitting..." very odd indeed. oh well. i have done some experimentation with incense and have abandoned the idea of a burned incense. the smell was too strong and smoky- as you might expect - for what i want. i will therefore be having a go at oils. perhaps in a couple of weeks when I'm off at a friends for the weekend, she has a great stash of essential oils and I'm sure she wont mind me playing with them for a bit.

in other terribly exciting news - i am now the co-subject of a bitchcraft campaign!

a 'man' by the name of Andrew Bamber (London) claims to be a hereditary brythonic cunning man/traditional witch. bullshit and double bullshit. he was new on the pagan scene a fw years ago and i even remember selling him some beginning type books at the Beltane Bash, i also spent time talking to him and quite probably used the 'Brythonic' term with him within the pagan religion context - hence i think this is where he got it from. it isn't common in this context and as far as i know there are only a few sites that use it: this blog, my own website and the Caer Feddwyd/Brython websites.the whole concept of a brythonic cunning man trad-crafter is absurd in itself.i called him out on this. he has since been rather repulsive in him comments, started a poetry competition aimed at deriding me and another person and is generally out to piss me off. suffice to say i WILL be ending this. all in good time and all in bad ways.

p.s Bo - this is what you are missing! see! the pagan scene!

Gawd! Dear me. This chap rings a bell from somewhere but I can't recall where. Why can't people just grow up? Don't let the bastards get you down, Lee!

nah, he wont get me down. its laughable really, he is just an annoying twunt buzzing within my life right now. he will piss of eventually of his own accord and disappear inot the shadows again.

he is a largely built welsh guy, walks with a bit of a limp and tends to wear fgoth/vampire cloths, brocade waistcoats etc. a google search will turn him up in a few places.
