Catching up a bit

ZOMG! Can it really be 3 months since I last posted?

Time is passing quickly here. I’ll have to put together a post summarising the events of the last three months at some stage soon, but in the meantime suffice it to say that I now have a part-time job, involving shifts, and it’s been difficult to find time to get to my blog, or to keep up with other people’s doings.

This morning I listened to the American comedian Jackie Mason on Desert Island Discs as I was putting together a sandwich. What an interesting bloke! One of the tunes he chose almost knocked me down as I stood in the kitchen grating cheese, mooli and carrot and chopping onion in preparation for my hilly afternoon excursion with Piglet. It wasn’t something I’ve ever heard before, and the artist (Timi Yuro) isn’t really from ‘my’ musical era. The sentiment underlying the words of the chorus, though (“Let it please be him, Oh dear God it MUST be him, it MUST be him or I shall die, I shall die!!!”) is something that every woman living in the telephone age who’s ever had a love affair turn bad will be familiar with *g* Maybe even some blokes too 🙂 Anyway, here it is. The brutal honesty of the lyrics simply swept me away! Impressive stuff!

Having recovered from the shock, I remembered reading somewhere that there’s now a vast repository of Desert Island Discs available online for download, and so I went in search of some to listen to on my planned Piglet walk. I found them and downloaded a bunch, and here’s one of the tunes chosen by Clarissa Dickson-Wright. Maybe the fact that I was out running by the time I got to it on the mp3 player played a part in the way the words blew me away–I was knackered, and at a bit of a low ebb–or maybe they’re just really good lyrics. Either way, though, here it is. Great stuff again!

Two more. The first is simply a tune I’ve always loved, chosen by another of the people whose DIDs I’d downloaded, and the second kept coming up when I was searching on YouTube for links. Um… as it happens, though, I love that tune too.
