Aargh - work to do! This is a good thing, but it means I haven't had time to blog, so apologies to my demanding audience (retro).
I had quite a fun easter break doing what seemed like not a lot, but when written down looks a lot more eventful than it is:
Thursday afternoon - Pizza Express to celebrate Tim's impending marriage, and a fair bit of white wine.
Friday - Hung around Windsor. Left my purse at home due to payday not being for another week. Watched Thom clothes shopping.
Saturday - Hung around Reading. Left my purse at home due to payday not being for another week. Watched Thom clothes shopping (he bought lots of lovely clothes that make him look dead sexy). Watched Thom win his Dexy's ebay purchases at the last minute. Drove back to Tooting and ate pizza.
*writing 'the Le' does not sit well with my inner-grammar alarm, but it just doesn't sound right without it
In between my extremely busy day of listening to Welsh people yesterday, I was having quite a heavy emailing session with Thom and Kristin. Thom explained why he has a deep love for The Byrds. Apparently they prompted him to get with his first ever girlfriend. I knew there was a reason I didn't like The Byrds! Is it wrong of me to have an inferiority complex and paranoid schizoid tendencies when the man who loves me talks about his previous infatuations. Yes, it probably is.
1997 - Joy Division, Gong
1999 - Bobby Womack, Orange Juice
2000 - Neil Young, Bert Jansch, Fairport Convention (although they took a bit of reignitiion from Thom to really sink in)
2003 - The Features, Beach Boys (again Thom became the main fuel for this burning ember)
2004 - Dexy's Midnight Runners, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Sparks, Gene Clark... and XTC are finally sinking in
Rather interestingly, I had a resistance to quite a few of those bands at first, but it took breaking up with the bloke to really begin to appreciate them. I like the way I barely show resistance to what Thom listens to (bar Steely Dan). He must be doing something right.
