Just a short one today, mostly to point out that A-ha are disbanding! What a sad day. Although I’ve not really listened to any of their newer stuff, there are barely any songs around that can match Take On Me, or more importantly The Sun Always Shines On TV. I absolutely love that song, it’s one of those that stirs up where you were and what you were doing when you heard it.
Other than that, there’s not much to report at the moment. It’s getting a bit colder, I’m having a pumpkin design choice dilemma, and my social diary is actually getting pretty full. This Saturday we’re all off to celebrate my friend’s wife’s birthday with a meal, the week after it’s the annual Falmouth Beer Festival (and I’ve got a nagging feeling something else is on, but I can’t remember what…), then the week after it’s Halloween. Cue a night out with loud music, and going to a fancy dress party as a muppet. It keeps on into November too, there’s Guy Fawkes night and in the same week Haye is fighting Valuev for the belt. That’s going to be a great fight, I reckon more fireworks than on Nov. 5th
How droll of me. If I could get to youtube here I’d finish up with a nice embedded video of The Sun Always Shines On TV. However, I can’t, so I suggest you head over there and watch it while I hum the tune in my head.
That I got the job!!!!!
As of next Tuesday I will officially be a ‘Systems Specialist’ working for the County Council’s staffing agency. I think that’s the best title I’ve ever had, and certainly better than the ‘Customer Service and Sales Support Assistant’ I was a few years ago.
I’m so pleased, I’m over the moon, but talk about fine timing – I’ve got this job with one day left on my current contract. I go into work on Monday, finish off my bits and clear my desk, then the next morning I’m at my new job. It’s a little longer commute (a massive 13 miles each way – I know, come back when I’m doing 60 a day!), but it’ll give me more time to actually listen to my music.
I want to say a huge thank you to anyone who’s supported me, you know who you are, and hopefully you know how much it’s meant to me, a little bit of belief goes a long way. I’m hoping I get to really celebrate this weekend! I’m going to celebrate with some tracks as they come to mind. Some great, some perhaps not so great but I secretly enjoy anyway.
Vanessa Carlton – A Thousand Miles (Don’t say I didn’t warn you!)
A-ha – The Sun Always Shines On TV
My Life Story – 12 Reasons Why (One of my favourite tracks ever)
Celldweller – Switchback
and I think I’ve had it here before but why not..
Bat For Lashes – What’s A Girl To Do
