I was on the phone to a friend on Thursday at work and she offered to babysit my son and my friend’s daughter so we could both go out. Without even hesitating I said a very emphatic, ‘Yes’. So we’re off to see Pornland’s last gig. I used to go and see them before child and am pretty sure I haven’t seen them since then. When they first started they used to do quite a few 70’s glam type covers then they changed more into original stuff which was pretty good but didn’t grab me in quite the same way.
I’m hoping that tonight they play a bit of everything they’ve done over the last seven years, original and not. The outfit is planned, the facemask has been on and is now washed off and I shall soon have the shower I’ve put off from this morning. Oh, and the coffee will be brewing after I’ve had my shower as I need a caffeine boost. And boost it shall be as I rarely drink hot coffee so it should guarantee wakefulness for a few hours to come yet.
It’s so rare that I have a spontaneous evening like this out that I am really looking forward to it so I hope that it shall be a fun night.
On a different note, I had planned to comment on Jamie Oliver’s new show, ‘Jamie’s Dinners’ but Loobylu has sneaked in before me so have a read. All I will say is I always admired him but that has increased tenfold now as his passion just shines through via his cooking more so than it ever did when he just made meals in front of camera. You would have to be passionate to try and get London councils to agree to use your school dinner menus and then even more passionate to get recalcitrant kids to try your food that doesn’t consist of fattening junk food. Full credit to him.
