the office smells of actual paint today, it's delicious. (to smell, i mean, i haven't tasted it. yet.)

xxx

is it bad to be dreaming of getting home and tasty dinner already? really? lunch fail again. remembered to pick up fruit x3, forgot to pick up roast veg for couscous. i *could* have plain cous cous, but really, no.

xxx

bright club last night was BRILLIANT. the combination of METAL (\m/), scientists and men with gold penises worked perfectly. and there were plenty of teases at my favourite songs. i need more metal in my life.

xxx

another reason i'm looking forward to home, is that the last episode of season 3 of l&o awaits me! whooo! i've (almost) managed 3 years worth of telly in 3 months! only another 284 odd hours to go! that's, er, only 12 whole days..... oh dear.

xxx

(no, i don't have much to say for myself at the moment. trauma, trauma, who am i if i am not a sozzled old hag?)

i'm sparing you most of it. yesterday i almost posted about whether i should by a pair of choos or a maine coon. ahem.

good things
  • my birthday chilli plant is growing new fruit!! not only have i not killed it, it is doing what it should do. and is mighty tasty.
  • i have tickets for the blur reunion. i couldn't not. in fact, that may be my sister's christmas present sorted. i took her to mile end as one of her first gigs. bagsy not getting pulled over the front this time.
  • simon munnery's radio 4 pilot last night. loosely (very) based around the theme of relationships. featuring simon being v funny, and a lot of the excellent reginald d hunter. that man is somehow magical. you can't help but listen to him talk. i have NO idea what sort of show can be edited out of the hour or so of the two in conversation. especially when reg only realised right at the end with the audience q&a that he shouldn't have been swearing.
  • going to comedy with [livejournal.com profile] diamond_geyser. it's been too long since i did so properly.

    you know it's summer proper when you're watching comedy previews in [livejournal.com profile] diamond_geyser and [livejournal.com profile] drasticsturgeon's front room.

    last week saw mark allen and terry saunders on wednesday tuesday. mark's show is called "....pet project" and features an awful lot of furries. despite this, and my (totally irrational) loathing of the aforementioned creatures, i do not vomit, and it is jolly good indeed. terry's show, in contrast, is called "figure 8", and i love elliot smith. it is a gloriously inventive love story.

    ***

    thursday wednesday saw another front room preview. james dowdeswell and carey marx. the two shows complement each other wonderfully. james is a lovely chap trying to be a bit harder and nastier, and carey is trying to be cleaner and less wrong and filthy.

    all four shows were shaping up quite wonderfully, and i have no hesitation in recommending all of 'em if you happen to be wandering around edinburgh this august. none at all.

    ***

    also on wednesday some final ticket sorting was managed so that thursday d and i could head merrily off to latitude festival, wheeee! which was all jolly outdoors wholesome (as wholesome as i get) fun. tl;dr entry to follow at some point, hopefully before friday.

    some top things though:
    bands:
    black kids
    eli "paperboy" reed
    seasick steve
    elbow
    sigur ros
    the go! team

    other:
    managing to meet up with all the ace people that were in various places
    the radio 4 tent
    ross noble / robin ince - THE PEEL OFF
    magic performer wristbands
    MFMO
    book club
    stefan coward's ace play
    SCREAMING book at bed time
    the secret piano in the woods
    &c &c &c....

    of course, there were some less good incidents, fractionated camping, a bit of rain, a spot of illness, and man, the fun of illegally sneaking backstage was somewhat lessened by being actually *allowed*, but we'll leave all that for now.....

    shewho: (honeybee)
    i spent most of yesterday afternoon trying to rescue a bee. not any bee, no. we found the most ENORMOUS bumblebee creature buzzing around the lights in the kitchen at work. i think it must have been living behind the microwave, it was that immense.

    and then we did science! using my handy torch. turned off all the lights, and got the bee to follow the torchlight across the floor. it was almost as if we were communicating, the bee and me. well, they don't call me queen bee for nothing. (at all.)

    anyway, plan was doomed to failure once the stupid creature got to reception and saw the windows.

    i can't watch bees headbutt themselves on glass for long, i find it heartbreaking.

    the old glass and paper trick was employed, and i sent him on his way. just as the heavens opened. i hope he was alright.

    ***

    also yesterday i saw a rather good twelfth night at the regent's park open air theatre. tasty food. tasty wine. (NB if you are trying to kill yourself with coughing, a sip of wine at appropriate moments works much better at stopping you than a sip of water.) funny show. most excellent fool. NO RAIN.

    ***

    previously i saw the ska and ed byrne doing edinburgh previews on a boat. amos hadn't really got very far, in terms of, well, anything, but was funny nonetheless. mr byrne set me off into feminist rage. i don't think it was his fault, really, more likely the wine.

    ho hum.

    d'you know, i think i'd like it if every day could be rounded off by watching / listening to lovely john hegley for an hour or so.

    i played proper (i.e. non-facebook) scrabulous yesterday. blimey, but that's a different sort of game. if you're a dunce with the options, at any rate. not only trying to beat your opponent, but in a set time as well. needless to say, i won...

    in other, other news, an apple STILL isn't a proper dinner, and barmen who persuade you to have tequila as a coffee substitute are EVIL and i am weak.

    which is to say clockwork comedy was ace last night (luke roberts, tony law, paul trap / alan bennett, tomi walla-something, richard herring) but my meal of tequila was a slippery slope to The Drunk, and my sleepy imbibing of pro-plus was possibly foolish, leading to me not only talking stupid nonsense, but doing so fast and repeatedly. you'd think somehow the tired and the drunk and the caffeine would cancel each other out, but oh no, overexcitable drivel. i shouldn't be allowed to talk to people. EVER. except early on when being sensible on the door, because cheeky banter managed to get 4 chaps attempting to SING me the magic password in harmony. sweet! this was my favourite thing. well, almost. probably my favourite thing was watching people enjoy themselves whilst they were watching something they don't usually enjoy. hah, work your way through THAT sentence if you can!

    in FINANCIAL RUIN news, i appear to have a couple of hundred quid to last until the end of the month, and haven't bought a single chrimbo present yet. i did, however, probably drink the equivalent of several presents last night. idiot.
