Oh, was so glad to see Black Fingernails, Red Wine by Eskimo Joe win single of the year last night on the ARIAs. It's such a relief that someone is still making that kind of music in a world of women singers doing vocal gymnastics and that other wanky music, sorry, I mean spewsic that I can't stand.
And Midnight Oil being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. Well, it's probably about time, isn't it? Silverchair doing I Don't Wanna Be the One - good stuff. Thoroughly enjoyed the combination of Pete Murray and John Mayer together -sweet. Could have listened to that pair and their guitars all night .
I'm thrown all out out of whack with daylight saving and don't know whether I'm Arthur or Martha -so to speak. Goal for the rest of the year is to get up earlier and get to bed at a decent time. Have written it here and so will have to stick to now.
This is a weird kind of post where none of it bears relation to any of the the rest of it. Actually, maybe that's not so unusual for this silly blog.
Want to record here something in utter bad taste just for fun.
A couple of days ago I ring to speak with my sister and her son - my nephew(obviously) answers the phone:
Must think of an alias first ....
O.K.- so James answers the phone:
Hello James - how are you going? Can I talk to your Mum, please?
Is she home?
Is she in the bathroom or something?
So is she in the shower on in the loo? Is she going to be long, or do you want to take a message?
James:(with great reluctance)Well, she's in the loo
Did she tell you not to tell anyone when she's in the loo or something?
Why? Did you tell someone once?
What did you say?
James: I said she was on the toilet doing a big pooh.
It cracked me up ,and does everytime I think of it, as my sister is a pretty, petite fresh faced girl with lovely long hair and in the one sentence he uttered he reduced her to a trucker or something - little bugger!Hahahahaha.
And in an unrelated subject - isn't Michael Palin just lovely? Hadn't said it for a while and it just needs to be said on this Monday morning.
Mood - tired as hell
