It is good to get away from the big city and out into the country side. I am lucky that my parents live in a rural part of the country. Yesterday with two of my country friends (one who is a huge Ray Meyers fan, who almost bought a

Random topic in aid of a random comment made by one of my friends school class children.

Today at luncheon (now that the sandwich game has ended) we messed around with the idea of oxymorons and other words. ‘Living Legend’ is an oxymoron but it also can be used to form an alliteration, ‘Luke Looks Longingly at the Living Legend’, which could also be described as a form of anthropomorphism. So, you could say that the above is an Oxyiteraomorphic sentence, which in itself is a Portmanteau.

I bought Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk and the Grace EPs today, off the back of some last minute Christmas shopping. Jeff Buckley is amazing, I still recommend getting the Live at Sin-e double CD+DVD, I don’t think its possible not to like this music! Although I’ve been trying to learn some of it on the guitar, and its just not as easy as it sounds.

I also saw a women lose her shoe down the side between the tube train and the track today; I felt sorry for her, someone was already helping her so I wasn’t left with the pain stickening feeling of guilt if I just left her there minus one shoe.

I recently submitted a topic on the zwan message board regarding Dave Pajo thinking Billy Corgan was an asshole. The story was legitimate, from a news source I found off Google News. The story is here.

However I was accused of causing negativity within the Zwan community and the topic was deleted by board admins. They did this to keep the Zwan community non-negative. The truth is there is no community, I certainly do not want to be involved with a community that censors free speech, particularly when you consider I wasn’t making this stuff up – it was published. I am probably very bitter at it all, I am annoyed that although I have put an extraordinary amount of work into the Zwan community, if I step out of line (by reporting the facts) then I immediately get dismissed!! It’s a crazy world I guess!!!

I found out about the artist Jeff Buckley through a friend of mine in the Netherlands. Jeff Buckley, from what I have read and heard, is a guy that liked to play music in a small Irish cafe called Sin-

Last night was our work party and we went to a bar/restaurant called Digress at City Point, London – it was very nice of work to take us to this bar, but, the clientele of the packed bar are probably the worse crowd of people you can imagine (except for maybe the people you’d meet at a sucide bombers convention). ‘City boy banker accounting broker types’ is the only way I can describe the majority of the male crowd – with their foul mouthed home counties secretaries. I was verbally assaulted by at least 3 different women in the evening while being there. Two accused me of throwing ice at them and really hurting them, even though it had nothing to do with me. Another women used expletives at me in the queue to get our coats.

Unless you are already a foul mouth home county girl or have sold into the banking, accounting capitalism dream don’t go there. Ever.

Digress is at City Point London its website is http://www.digress-city.co.uk/. Their website says smart/casual but don’t wear trainers the bouncers won’t let you in without making a fuss.
