Continuing the squid-related theme...

I went to a South American curio shop in Parkstone, Poole a couple weeks ago and bought an octopus finger-puppet girl-friend for my pal Andy:

Apparently, she was knitted by a Peruvian family in a village outside of Lima and the guy in the shop swore they'd been paid handsomely for their sterling efforts. I hope he wasn't shitting me; us puny, white, m/class liberals can get awful hissy when people fuck with us.

Haven't come up with a name for her yet. I think she's a very nice girl, and she's definitely been a calming influence on our Andy, but the downside is that the pair of them have been keeping me awake at night shagging under my pillow.

"Mercedes" is the name of the middle-aged corporate anti-heroine of my Post-PKD paranoid fashion-spy drug-drama "Linoleum Sky" which, by co-incidence, I've been reviewing this week with an eye to re-writing...

Therefore: Mercedes, it is!

"Mercedes and Andy": kinda Post-Chav, dontcha think? I just gotta get someone to knit a little car for them so we can write their names on the windscreen stripe...
