thanks for last night [Aug. 18th, 2004|09:26 am]

Hello all. Last night's gig at the 100 Club opening for Spearmint was great fun. I think we will remember it for a very long time. I'd like to personally thank my friend Tom Pounder for unexpectedly turning up to see us. Apart from a couple of my wife's mates, none of my other friends turned out despite a very targeted information operation. It was a packed crowd nonetheless and scissorkicks comfortably helmed the mixing desk to provide us a great sound. I'm really looking forward to the next gig in September and another in early November with Scarlet's Well. But for now, I'm glad for a bit of rest. To top off the perfect evening I actually did make the last train home... and made it for 9am in the office. Zzzzzzzzzzz

Thanks Martin. Sorry I didn't get to hang out with you more. Also sorry you didn't care for Spearmint. Their sound was weird at the beginning and it wasn't particularly engaging. It got better after about half way. Their Water Rats gig I saw in May blew me away. This one I was disappointed at the beginning but got into it eventually.

There have been lots of people complimenting you, and not me, which is obviously a bit annoying for me, but not for you.

Huzzah!

It's Not Me, It's You

I'm sorry about that, I guess. But people or more familiar with you. Nobody would have seen me more than once before and so I guess a member of the audience who has seen the Free French in the past would be more inclined to comment about me. I'm happy about it of course and it all goes into the common repository.

For the record, I obviously wasn't annoyed, and I'm glad that people are saying that it's the best version of the band yet. Of course, I knew this already.

No I didn't think you were, but I had to say something after all. ;-)

You mean apart from a couple of your wifes mates, and your actual wife! Sorry I missed the better half of the Spearmint set. Thats what you get for living in the boonies I suppose. Driving into town I felt like Rosanna Arquette in Desperately Seeking Susan. Except less attractive, obviously.

Of course that's what I meant, darling! Yes, it goes without saying. Or maybe it doesn't. I'm glad you could come.

A man and his wife, communicating on LiveJournal. It's enough to make you want to shed a tear, isn't it?

And all this while sitting three feet apart and watching a program about a couple who have trouble communicating because she watches too much tele.

Misplaced modifier. "she" = female half of TV couple. Although we can if you like. :)
