Tristan Wells

He had cartoon hair, drawn on as an afterthought, boyish yet murky at the end. I loved him stupidly because he lived an uncomplicated life. It wasn't that he wasn't thoughtful, it's just that he didn't require answers like the rest of us. I didn't know at the time, how much he meant to me, how much of a model he was. God, I loved him.

I loved his coat, coveted it. It was shapeless but expensive. After he died I loved his gipsy girlfriend because she had some stuff that was part of him, and the great deep brown areolas sinking into a bubble bath as we looked at each other tearfully. And I loved his father (the greatest betrayal) because he had that old Mercedes and a video of the Newport Jazz Festival with Thelonious Monk and those dangerous Christmas lights and a giant turkey and the bit of wood which kept the dishwasher closed which you had to hurdle or limbo under and the elderly female relative, surely dead now, with the extraordinary flatulence.

He was so fast even crippled as he was by some hereditary back thing four hundred metres in fifty seconds and easy hands swatting a six into the car park at Alleyne's and that just a top edge, so perfect so fragile as it turns out.

His name is Tristan Wells. Tristan Raymond Ernest Wells. T. R. E. Wells. You won't find his name on the internet, this was 1989, there are no memorial benches or websites in tribute. He was magnificent, I loved him, and he died twenty years ago today. My life has had its share of sorrows (and more joys than I might expect or deserve) but this was the first great 'fuck you!' that this brief vale of tears had in store for me. And even then I was more grateful than disappointed. So fuck you right back. There will be brilliance and uncommon beauty amongst the folly. There will be people to believe in, and whose example we can hope to follow.

He had terrible taste in music.

He was a genuine nice guy.

Also sad if you hadnt heard already when Anne Ehlen passed away with breast cancer aged 32. Another great person gone too soon.

車燈來看看唷!
情趣用品用品對一般人來說充滿神秘動人的吸引力,許多人想一窺情趣用品用品究竟,卻又不敢太過接近,因為這個領域充斥著謠言與標籤、讓許多人深怕一碰及就會讓別人投射以異樣的眼光看待。

如果大家稍微留意一下,不難可以發現一些事,大多人在逛街時對每一間情趣用品用品店的櫥窗都會向內張望後姍姍離去,有一些人卻是假裝目不斜視的走過。畢竟台灣人的觀念並沒有像國外一樣的開放,所以還無法很公開與光明正大的踏進情趣用品用品去選購一些情趣用品用品
 
利用網路購物的方式去選購情趣用品用品是相當方便的一件事情,可以從網頁上獲得商品的詳細介紹而不必害羞的去詢問店員商品的使用方法,並且在商品的介紹上面也不亞於從店員那獲得的資訊,有些甚至還更詳細一些。
 
在台灣有許多情趣用品用品訂購網站,從以前只有少樣的情趣用品用品到今日數百種的情趣用品用品看來,這種促進閨房之樂的東西已經漸漸地為人們所接受與喜愛。

但以目前的市場來說,絕大部分的情趣用品用品網站皆以銷售台灣、大陸製造的情趣用品用品居多。原因很簡單:成本低廉,卻也因此犧牲了品質和安全性!情趣用品用品是直接與自己和最親密的另一半的身體接觸,為了節省一點點的金錢而選擇品質粗糙的廉價黑心情趣用品用品,實為相當不智的選擇。

夏天又到了.為了穿美美的衣服我花了好多時間減肥
,過幾天好朋友要結婚了, 還特地找了便宜又漂亮的服飾批發網站,

還有熱門的飾品批發網站,發現裡面飾品種類超多,有流行韓國飾品白鋼飾品耳環

還提供了飾品批發資訊、大小量飾品批發創業皮箱網路格子店鋪,連飾品工廠都是有提供哦!真是細心的廠商!!

最近剛好想賣衣服也有服飾批發可以參考真棒,

打理好參加婚禮的裝扮後禮品當然也不能少,

逛逛禮品贈品網站,還發現了廣告杯廣告衣服,還可以印刷耶!很不錯的打廣告方式哦,

不景氣~自己用個網站賣賣東西增加額外的收入好像也不錯,情趣用品網路上賣這個不知好嗎?

查查看有哪些網頁設計公司還有網路空間國外虛擬主機

還需要個網路行銷公司幫我打打廣告,

現在的網路行銷還有開辦網路賺錢特訓班耶,

哇~這個快遞公司服務範圍好廣哦,有空運海運國際物流採購,那寄送東西一家就搞定了!

最近好懶得自己整理家務找家清潔公司來幫忙整理好了,

前兩天朋友跟我訴苦她老公外遇,要我幫她找徵信社,不知道有沒有人有認識的!
