introduction & hello

Hi. The name's Duncan Donaldo. I've been asked to keep a daily web diary of life on the dole because that's what I 'do'... I'm a dole-ite. Down here in the scummiest town in the south coast of England, Hastings.

WARNING: This diary contains references to:
drugs, death, sailors, Greece, scratchcards, credit card fraud, swiss sex-aid catalogues, Fat Boy Slim, Mad Max, turkey plucking, Craig David, violence, helicopters, Cash Converters, arson, cannabis, David Attenborough, stabbings and Enya (Roughly in that order).

Some of you may remember this diary from last year. It sort of stopped mid way. Well, I'm having another go this year. Hopefully it will be better.

The diary will be updated every day, 5 days a week, for the next few months. Hope you enjoy it. If you like, you can email me. If I get any good ones - or any, for that matter - I'll stick them up in the guestbook section.

a bit about me

I used to live in a flat just off the New Kent Road in London's Elephant And Castle, and now I live in the scummiest town on the south coast... Hastings.

I moved here because I wanted to live by the sea, but couldn't afford Brighton. I thought Hastings was quite a good compromise at the time, but have since discovered that it's really, really, shit... and now I'm stuck here, in a poverty trap.

You can find out more about the South Coast here and here are some pics to give you the gist:

In order to help me keep this weblog going, Seethru have given a computer. I asked for something flashy so I could play games on it, but was instead given a shitty old Amstrad 386SX 33mhz clunkmeister.

By the way, the characters, locations and events in this weblog are all genuine. The names and some of the photos of the people involved have been changed to protect their identities.

More tomorrow...
