Badminton with the President
Yes it's true. I played badminton today, with the President….of Wind Orchestra. Whilst I consider myself to be an adequate player, I found myself playing to a good player today. Although Andy has only played twice in the past two years (last week, and today), he gave me quite a scare at points.
Suffice it to say, I won, but we are on unequal terms at the moment. Give it a few more weeks, and he'll be frightening me into losing!
Other than this, I went to see my beautiful girlfriend over the weekend, and we had a fantastic time in the Lyceum theatre watching the Lion King. It was fantastic. The staging, the lighting, the sound (apart from the young Simba microphone drop-out), the costumes and props were all AMAZING! The character Zazu was brilliant, and stole the show in my eyes. Our weekend was great. It was so nice to see her again, and have chance to catch up on my kissing and cuddling!
And it was only when I briefly looked at the programme, that I realised that one of my favourite choral/orchestral composers did the additional music – Hans Zimmer. Famous for the music from Gladiator.
I'm off to eat pasta now. Soon.
