No, surely you'd just relieve yourself in the queue with a savage joy?

Good one!

Can we have an emoticon for doing anything with a savage joy? Oh, the hilarity would ensue.

A tuba is for life not just for Christmas.



Today I have been to Land's End where I was pleased to discover a Dr. Who exhibition.

The only thing that I recall from the museum at Land End was a picture of two guys, with their eyes blanked out, standing next to a Ferrari.  They had driven from Lands End to John O Groats and back in 24 hours.  The picture gave a distance travelled, but didn't give an average speed.  I worked it out at almost exactly 70mph.  And there was a statement like - it is believed that they didn't always stick to the speed limit.

Too &^%&* right!

Many, many years back our first prog band (Freefall) decided to rent a cottage down in Cornwall for a week to write music. A big mistake as all we really did was treat it as a mad holiday. I remember the band visiting Land's End just after they opened it as a theme park. The attractions were rubbish but you could still wander up to the cliffs right at the tip (which I'm told you can't do now). We crawled up to the end and looked over thinking 'Wow, the most southern point of the British Isles.' What we actually saw were a pair of surly looking gulls sitting on a bit of rock jutting out a few feet away.

They were the most miserable southern gulls in the UK. Typical.

Maybe because they'd just learned that the gulls at The Lizard were actually further south....

And the Cornish Pasties on The Lizard are definitely superior to the ones at Land's End as well (the family and I carried out a comparative CP Survey last summer).

Something made me smile this morning. I was listening to the big In The Cage medley thing from the Genesis gig at Old Trafford in 2007 (which I was at  Grin ) while doing the washing up (I've become nocturnal) and I finished just as the Duke's Travels segment came on. When I saw this, it was probably the single most brilliant moment of my life (so far). I bounded up the stairs full of energy (like you usually are when you listen to Genesis  Tongue ) and opened the curtains in my bedroom as Afterglow started.

I just sat on the bed in the dark, looking out at the distant orange street lights glowing in the fog. I haven't felt so content and satisfied in a long time. I was taken back a few years to when I used to walk home from school in the Autumn as it was just getting really dark, listening to Duke, Wind And Wuthering or The Dark Side Of The Moon or something. I felt content, relaxed and happy then and I felt it again just now.

It's kind of hard to explain those feelings felt at those times and places that become so significant to us, but the point stays the same - it made me smile.  Smiley

Saw my best man yesterday for the first timne since our wedding almost a year ago.

She's over from New Zealand for a couple of weeks.

We went to Waxy O'Connors on Wardour Street and had a Sunday Roast, a few Caffreys and a large Whiskey to finish off.

I had a bit of a snooze in the evening. Grin

Are you sure you're only 17 years old (or however young you claim to be)? What a vivid picture you just painted. Thank you.

Yes, 18 years old with all the documentation to proove it.  Wink  I tend to be quite romantic with my descriptions of images and such. I then use those images to create music.  Smiley
