So I got myself some Take That tickets for the Cardiff show, ought to be fun: of course the company is exquisite ;)
I have had many many things to blog about in the past few weeks, but have to keep either resisting the urge (on the basis of having too much work to do to make it a guilt-free activity) or think "shit, but I still don't have the internet at my house". The latter can be ranted about another time, but think about how pissed off you would be if you applied to get broadband on 18th August and still don't have the modem to go with it.
So once again, I should be doing work at home, but the mere act has become so depressing that I'm resisting. Even though I know that more work now will mean efficient sleep later.
More generally speaking,I'm feeling torn these days.
There's the half of me that wants to go out, have fun, never sleep and behave like a schoolgirl at work. Then there's the half that would be much happier living on my own (though to be fair, I more or less do at the moment anyway), coming home at the same time every day to cook real food (as opposed to the constant snacking of present times), sleeping decent hours, having a good read before bed every night and spending all day Sunday drinking tea and reading the papers.
Thing is, I suppose everyone has the same sort of internal conundrum, if not about the same issues. You always want the lifestyle you haven't got at that very moment in time: the-grass-is-always-greener syndrome. But heck, that's life.
London is very very very slowly becoming less darkly mysterious and more brightly friendly, in small, indiscernible ways. This can only be a good thing.
And now, back to research for work…on a Sunday.

The shameful truth is…that I'm deeply disappointed that I don't have tickets to see them on their tour. I was too young to be concert going in those days, but they were my first musical obssession nonetheless.
Ironically, I was working in the NEC during ticket-sales time, but had no means of booking tickets (well, at least not with the same single-mindedness I would've done) and couldn't get right the other side to the box office, let alone have time to join the queue.
Ah well, no doubt there'll be a tour dvd…
