La-la on tour

April 29, 2008

I haven’t written for ages properly, been too busy.  Now to cut a long story short, a summary of why:

People came to visit. REAL people.  Multiple times as well!  These included (in order of appearance):

Lee, Nina, Mum (she’s kind of obliged, but she did enjoy talking to the fish), Gary Wood, Lee (2nd appearance – star player so far!), Elaine, many people for house party including Greg and Jpo. 

A number of London-excursions happened featuring dancing, Midnight Juggernauts, a DJ set and meeting with Bloc Party, visiting the Crack, more dancing, a house party, Banksy-hunting, snow fights, visiting the filled-in Crack and I Am Kloot.

I went to Edinburgh. And Glasgow. But mostly Edinburgh.  A fun, fun, fun time was had.  Friday night had us dancing at Cabaret Voltaire to Krafty Kuts and Annie Nightingale, Saturday we were dancing at the Hive.  There were movies, faces, monkey moves, slapping and punching (of me), faces everywhere, Champ (or here), not much sleep and a hungover shopping trip which produced little to show but a camera (but WHAT a camera!).   So many of my favourite people in the world were there, one of the best trips up so far.

After the flurry of mad activity that has been the past 3 weeks, La-la is going to rest her weary legs for the former part of this weekend, in preparation for yet another Edinburgh tour next week. 

Rumour has it though that the bank holiday in London holds many a secret gathering. 

It’d be rude not to attend.

 

Skins

April 13, 2008

Before it ends I want to mention on my blog just how much I’m LOVING the 2nd series of Skins. I watched one of the first series and thought it was rubbish but this series has been one great episode after another.  The soundtrack is one of the reasons I love it.  Series 2 theme tune is by Fat Segal, who also did the song Maxxie danced to in the first episode.   I really dislike the Gossip so am really glad they changed the theme tune.   (NB spot the naked person doing a chicken dance in the title sequence – i’m not sure if i’m imagining it or not)

Crystal Castles make an appearence singing Alice Practice ; if you’ve never heard them check out their myspace site.  

Skins finishes on Monday – I need a new addiction. Suggestions…please…  

Free hugs!

April 12, 2008

Free hugs have been thoroughly embraced and documented in the past but were unseen in the land of London…until TODAY!  Here I present my evidence:

I’m not quite sure what the mask was in aid of but I took full advantage of hug opportunity!  As did my Mum:

Wow! London just went up in my estimation!

 

Blog Block

April 10, 2008

It’s a sad day when you go to blog and all you can think of is snow falling in London. There’s GOT be something more exciting than that to talk about!  It landed in 3 hours, stayed a further 3 hours and 4 days later i’m still talking about it. 

Right, well here’s a token picture of me getting hit in the face by a snowball by Lee to keep you amused for now. You can’t actually see the snowball, however what is obvious is the look of pure determination turning to glee as he realises he’s actually managed to hit his target.  My camera survived to tell the tale.

No one is safe when Lee’s got a snowball urge

I promise to find something more blogworthy in the near future. Perhaps I’ll try a tramp-lifestyle for a bit

 

A Quick Note from your Sponsor

April 1, 2008

A man and his giraffe walked into a bar.  The man starts buying pints for the giraffe. Pretty soon the giraffe’s swaying all over the place.  Finally, with one last lurch, the giraffe crashes to the floor and lies there groaning.

The man goes to leave the bar and the barman shouts ‘Oi, you can’t leave that lying there!’

The man says ‘It’s not a lion, it’s a giraffe’.

(And with that completely shite joke, I am signing off.  There was a whole page of these bar jokes in the paper today but that’s the only one I could remember – typical, I am doomed always to remember only the jokes featuring animals.  Shite.  Ah well, such is life!)

La-La’s Land
