I've got old.

Went to see Foreigner / Alice Cooper today (no, I have no idea why a double bill of those two!) .. I didn't really know much about Foreigner, apart from Cold as Ice and I Want to Know What Love Is, so I wasn't expecting much, but I actually enjoyed them. (And they even played those two, so I could even go "yay, I know this song!".)

Alice... hmm. The band was good. Very young and energetic. Which was really the problem, I think, as (a) Alice was not so young and energetic, (b) the band was LOUD and Alice was not, and (c) pretty much every song had either got a new and, well, energetic arrangement or had been sped up about five times compared to the studio versions, so... well, it's not necessarily a good thing when you go to see someone whose fan you've been for a good 20 years and can recognise about five songs after they've been played for a while and have a vague feeling about the rest that you should know them too, but when you can't make head or tails out of the lyrics and the music sounds different too... *sighs*

So we left before it was over. It sounded better outside the hall, to be honest, but it was a bit too cold to stand outside and listen. I think I'll do my future Alice listening from the CDs, preferably at very low volume.

So yes, I feel old. And quite deaf too, now. And a little disappointed, but I did get an enjoyable 1.5 hour show first, and there were bits of Alice I enjoyed... like him stabbing someone in the beginning and hitting band members with a crutch at some point.

IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE?

The song meme - instructions and results. )

I realised yesterday that I've written and posted 52 parts of Enchanted. That makes 5200 words. That's almost like a real story already! And I don't have a clue how much longer it's going to take... probably not going to get to 100 though. I should start considering how to wrap it up soon. And I've been thinking that maybe it's trying to tell me that I should try my hand at a non-drabble story, but... I like drabbles. They make me consider what I'm writing and weigh every word. I worry that without that, I wouldn't take so much care with what I say and just fill the pages with random babble.

And I should try and do a bit more work today as I didn't really get as much done yesterday as I should have.

I'm so glad I don't work in a post-office (or anywhere else where one has to deal with, well, people - ewww!). Just spent 25 minutes in a queue observing people. It seems people aren't always the most reasonable creatures. It's rather funny really, especially when you get to yelling matches between the post office lady and a customer, the latter telling the former that she obviously cannot read and the former telling the latter that he obviously cannot write. Such fun!

Except of course that I'd have preferred to avoid all that and just collect my books (Alien Bodies and The Eight Doctors, both of which I'd entirely forgotten buying), as my own business there took about exactly 30 seconds.

At least I didn't faint, which is always good. And I made it home without more than just some lightheadedness and nausea, but those I'm used to (although to be honest, this week has been worse than I expected, especially the mornings, when I've not managed to eat and just focusing on staying more or less coherent has been taking an effort, but I suspect it's mostly just because I have become unused to getting up so early and I haven't been getting nearly enough sleep).

I wonder why none of the booths at the market stock either Hommiku or Õhtu Haps... most annoying, really.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm slowly getting back in the mood for Keith Richards' solo stuff. Which is nice. It's been a while since I've actually listened to it properly. So the middle part of Struggle doesn't quite take my breath away like it used to, but this is a good thing anyway as I think I've had enough difficulties with breathing lately. ;-) And it's still fabulous. So... insistent, deceptively simple, straightforward, raw, demanding but unassuming at the same time... beautiful, even if I wish it was twice as long. One of the few things I can actually listen to semi-loudly these days, as it seems I've lost my taste for loud music in the last few years. A sure sign of advancing age and all.
