But in other news...

I made another successful visit to the south coast yesterday, and was introduced to three new people, two of whom were over three years old, and one of whom was ill. Personally I felt the meeting was a success, but I'm reserving judgement until reports are in from all sides.

I also made the aquaintance of 'floppy headed bear', a high quality craft item made (almost entirely) by Lisa in her school days. Which was obviously quite a long time ago. He's worn well. Even if he doesn't have a nose.

I left Brighton with TWO packets of Polos this time, which I feel was symbolic of my growing popularity. Another couple of months and I'll be accepting them by the crate.

Having returned to the safety of Shotley Gate, Lisa attempted to broaden my musical horizons by playing me her Duran Duran CD (not that she's stuck in the 80s or anything), and introducing me to Terry Hall, who sounds more like a community centre than a popstar to me. But he does come up with his own album sleeves, and sounds like The Lightning Seeds, so I gave him a cautious thumbs up.

At 3am I kindly gave Lisa a lecture on music theory, chord construction, and key signatures, which I'm sure she appreciated. As of course did my neighbours, when I got out my guitar and started playing They Might Be Giants in the middle of the night.

We're off to see Derren Brown tonight. Lisa's going up on stage to be hypnotised and generally manipulated. She doesn't know it yet, but that's why it's going to be such a nice suprise when I volunteer her. She'll thank me for it later.
