Spent the day doing household stuff like making soup, the laundry, changing bed linen. Gave me plenty of time for reflection on the social part of last weekend. See, I've never had a girlie night out - ever. I haven't had so many late nights inj a row since I was a student *mumble mutter* years ago. It came as quite a revelation to me that I really enjoyed it. Of course, the highlight was meeting DB and JM but I also met lots of people that I would have been great friends with had I met them when I was younger, and two who I am definitely not going to lose contact with.

The first is the acquisitions' officer at the Imperial War Museum. She was most interested in the book about the school that I'd taken down for the woman who organised getting the ticket for me. I'd forgotten, until I turned to the page it was on, that I'd had a photo, with copyright fees waived, of the battleship that the school adopted during the war. As soon as she saw it she recognised the reference number and has asked me to lodge a copy at the museum.

Second is the Deputy Head of a Primary school very close to my Mum in the North of England. I arranged to meet her and her sister at Euston so that we could travel across London together. We recognised one another immediately, even though we'd never seen any photos. After one drink that lasted over 2 hours, it was evident that we had so much in common. And now I'm a little peeved that I can't get into the CDS board to PM her. It'll have to be the phone. So, jennylyle, don't you criticise your MWNNmark2 for being an IT Bimbo. Sometimes, ET phone home is the only way to go.

ETAJM played his first solo concert in Europe on Saturday night. His newest song is called Patricia. Have I mentioned how much I hate that name? I couldn't get past it to really appreciate whether I liked the song or not . . . not, I've decided. For all you fans of JM's music, he indicated that he might be making new ones available on mp3.

I wish he'd just put a cork in it.

His performance wasn't bad. True, he'd never make it as a singer/songwriter in any big way and I really wish he'd stick to what he does best. But, apart from wanting to tune the top E string for him and not liking Patricia (*spit* we will speak no more), the other songs sound better now that he's gawn solo. He started out a little flat (nerves) but after the rapturous applause, his voice relaxed and he was fine with the singing. I'm impressed that a left-hander can play a right-handed guitar so well. I certainly couldn't finger pick with my left hand.

My musical skillz are zippo, so he'll always be ahead on that one. I just feel the world already has a Bryan Adams, and doesn't need a second rate one.

And now I just have to ask - what on earth is on the block on the icon?

It's a keyboard with grass growing out of it.

*rolls eyes*

Doesn't anyone see it?

Looks like frozen peas - or maybe baby newts (back to Finky again)

Baby newts aren't green, are they? i don't remember that from the school pond.
