As Tom Petty once said, “The waiting is the hardest part.”

Well, the wait is over, I’ve been through every entry more than once and after some very careful consideration, I’ve chosen the winner of the “shroom with the hippy” contest.

It wasn’t easy, several of you hippyfans really wanted to scoop this prize. I wish I could shroom with each and every one of you this Saturday, but sadly its only possible for me to party with one lucky winner.

I’ve emailed the winner and am awaiting their reply. I’m sure they will be overcome with excitement and pure joy when they receive my personal invitation, confirming their status as the winner. Since I haven’t heard back from the winner just yet, to confirm their participation on Saturday, I won’t be revealing their name right now.

What I can tell you is that the lucky winner is a 23-year-old student nurse, based not too far from my lair in north London. She’s done shrooms a couple of times; her first experience was at Glastonbury last summer. She told me her friends are not into shrooms, so she doesn’t get the chance to enjoy them very often, so this will be a treat for her. She discovered my blog a few months ago and says she was hooked right away. She’s my kind of hippyfan!

How many other bloggers are willing to open their homes and share their shrooms with a fan? I am the coolest blogger in the world! They don’t call me the most “shroomtastic stoner on the internet” for nothing, you know! I can’t remain the “biggest internet celebrity you’ve never heard of” for much longer, can I? My brand of weird is on the up!

Don’t worry if you didn’t win, sometime next week I’ll be announcing the date of the next “virtual online shroom session.” Virtual online shrooming is open to anyone, regardless of where you are. As long as you have a net connection and some shrooms, you can play along from home as well!

The next “VOSS” (Virtual Online Shroom Session) will be even bigger and better than last time. It will be just like I’m in the room with you, we’ll be seeing those pretty colours together. Trust me, you don’t want to miss out on this exciting live online event. I’ll be giving everyone plenty of notice, so you can take the day off from work if you need to. And they’ll be no excuses, you get some shrooms, you join me online and you have the motherfucking time of your motherfucking lives! Dammit, fuckers!

I met my brother for lunch today, in central London. We went to a bar/diner that specialises in quality burgers, fries and shakes. It was all kinds of good!

It was good to see my brother as well, I hadn’t seen him since last summer, which is fucked, but there you go. It’s the first time I’d seen him since our father died, but we really didn’t talk about it that much.

On our way back to the tube, we saw some crazy guy, who scaled the scaffolding of a building near Oxford Circus, threatening to jump. We knew to look up because everyone else was already looking up. He seemed quite distressed and was having a proper freak out. There were cops and ambulances already there, but no “hook and ladder” fire truck to rescue him.

My brother and I didn't stay to watch the show, since these people rarely jump and it just would have dragged on for ages. If I was more entrepreneurial, I might have taken some commemorative photos or sold tee-shirts or something. To the hicks and tourists, this was a big event. But to some jaded old city cunt like myself, it was nothing special.

I didn’t go anywhere in the Yaris today, it’s still parked right outside my house, where I can see it. It’s rare to get a spot that close to my place, so I think I want to hang on to it as long as I can!

Mrs. H is off to see her family this weekend, so it’ll be shrooms-a-plenty for me. I’m tempted to dose myself on Friday and Saturday, but something tells me I should hold off until my lucky contest winner is here. I’ll decide tomorrow night, perhaps I should finally try that kratom I have on Friday night instead. Oh, decisions, decisions, my life is so complex.

Sorry, I got distracted in the middle of all this. I’m due a freebie handset upgrade from my mobile phone company, I get one just about every year this time. My last 3 were Sony Ericssons, and I think my next one will be from the same company. I’ve currently got the T630, which is a great phone, but I’m looking at the very sexy S700i, which seems like a fine piece of kit. It’s got a 1.3 megapixel camera as well as all the usual bells and whistles I’ve gotten used to, like Bluetooth, GPRS and WAP.

I love technology!

The catch of course is that my mobile phone provided is not offering this model at the moment. They suggested I try one of the big chain store companies, a warehouse of sorts, which can do this handset for me. It’s all gotten complicated and now requires a trip to my local high street. But hey, it’s for a free phone that retails on the Sony website for 375 quid, which is about 750 US dollars. I suppose that’s worthy of a ten-minute walk!

I’ll head up there tomorrow and see what I can do. If I’ve clever and early, I might be able to get it all sorted in one-go. Now that would be cool!

I don’t have much more to say, though I guess that’s enough of an update on my weird and twisted life for one day! Enjoy!
