Purification by fire

Listening to: Exit the Dragon-Urge OverKill. Should have bought this years ago, found it yesterday in sales bin for $2, which is kinda cheap. I have rediscovered a few songs I had forgotten. Also in the same bin for the same price was a copy of Powderburns by the Twilight Singers, which is almost indecent, as it is a really good album worth far more than that.

This is my notebook from the job I left on Friday, filled with handy tips and hints about how to do various things.
Since it was a job I wound up having a healthy dislike for, and the contents of the notebook came to symbolise only angst and frustration, I thought there was only one reasonable way to dispose of it while gaining a reasonable degree of cathartic satisfaction:

BURNING THE THING

I was aided in this ritual by an enthusiastic Molly on her last day in NZ. Kids, don't try this at home
Initial combustion was somewhat slow, and verging on disappointing.......
until we (carefully) added a small amount of accelarant.....
which resulted in a much more satisfying effect.
Finis
Been looking forward to that for some time.......
