T'has been a while since I dropped anything in here, so's now I'm going to take some time and read back a few pages to try and catch up.
I have a valid reason though - revising, essays, birthdays and a new job. Maybe the best job i've ever had, even though it's not going to last much longer :[ I've been acting as the runner on these opera auditions, and they're happening in the same place that the RSC including Sir Jude Law have been rehearsing for Macbeth, which opens in London sometime in the near future. Hot damn, that is one good looking lad.
I've been going out far too much, and have subsiquently burned a serious hole in my overdraft. It seems that it's the season for all friends to come down south to the big smoke, and as such I have been playing the good hostess and taking said friends to various places to get drunk and dance until your feet hurt so much that you try to do that
walk. The one where you try not to put any weight on your feet? You know, the one that makes you look like a complete spakko? Yeah, that's the one. I don't think i'll ever regain full feeling in my toes again.
Nutella is the food of kings. Brown gold. Especially in crepes. French crepes. When they are still hot. I just dribbled on my desk. Feckin' gross, but totally worth it. I need to haul my ass
to France for one of those bad boys. Or my local market on Saturday morning.
My music video treat for y'all today comes from the insanity that is Seth Lakeman's live perfomances of 'Kitty Jay'. I've seen this dude live about a gajillion times at various folk festivals over the years (the most recent being last Saturday at a St. Georges celebration in Trafalgar Square), and every time he plays this, and he ALWAYS does, I can't help but be blown away over and over again. Plus, he pulls the sickest faces when he sings. Enjoy...KITTY JAY
p.s, I love how in the world of Folk, you get your punk on by destroying your bow instead of a guitar - they cost far too much, y'see.
