The amazing thing about my teeth is that they are still in my head – a minor miracle given the way I speak to people. As a victim of commercialism I am currently cleaning my pegs with a cocktail of toothpastes. Recipe to follow: 1/3 toothbrush Sensodyne Total Care Gentle Whitening 1/3 toothbrush Colgate MaxFresh with Cooling Crystals 1/3 toothbrush Arm & Hammer Brilliant Sparkle Crystal Clean-88 Plaque Removal for ULTRA CLEAN teeth. Topped with a frosting of Hollywood Smile Pearl Drops Whitening Toothpaste.
I have always been interested in rock stars of the late 60’s and 70s and even more fascinated by the women who slept with them. I found this amazing website dedicated to a woman named ‘Iggy the Inuit’ a girlfriend of Syd Barrett.
I suffer occasionally from night terrors and sleep paralysis. It started when I was young and has recurred with decreasing regularity (thank god) ever since. When it happens I awake in the night paralysed with a real sense of a disturbing presence in the room. I have had the sensation of being squashed and even pulled out of bed and across the floor. It used to frighten me a lot and now it just frightens me a bit. Many cultures believe that night paralysis is an indication of a demonic visitation, in this country it is a condition attributed to stress (ironically few things in life are as stressful as a demonic visitation). Of course it is possible to die during sleep and I once read that Nightmare On Elm Street was based around the condition. Terribly comforting.
