Everybody dance now, lost cities and bloody Adbusters!

April 18, 2007

I have had the sorest legs since Monday when I went to the gym with Paul. We worked on our legs (doing stretches and weights) and I did a heap of lunges that really worked my poor leg muscles! I made sure I went for a little walk up to the shops yesterday to get my legs moving but it sure hurt (especially going down stairs and there are four stairs in our flat so every time I go down to the lounge and kitchen it HURTS). I had planned on going to the gym today and I should go and at least do something – my membership problems have been sorted so they shouldn’t stop me going in!

Learning to play the keyboard/piano

April 17, 2007

The Independent newspaper this week is giving away a seven-day course on learning to play the keyboard. Very handy for me as I have been thinking for a while about doing just such a thing (I learnt the piano for a year or two as a child and would like to rehash what I learnt and build on that). The newspaper is also running a competition to win a Yamaha DGX-220 Portable Grand Keyboard! I am posting my entry today and am quite sure I will win because I really want it.

I really wanted a sewing machine and I won it so maybe Lady Luck will continue to shine on me, or maybe I’ve had enough luck and it’s someone else’s turn. Who knows?

Whose punk rock? Don't think it's mine!

Tomorrow I’m going to an event called This Is Our Punk Rock, and it sounds like it will be an audiovisual extravaganza! I’m particularly excited about seeing Alec Empire perform. Yay!

Paul sent me a link to a review of the new Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix computer game for the Wii (which my flatmate has – he has the Wii not the game!). It sounds quite cool. There is quite a funny comic on Penny Arcade about it. Those guys are funny geeks. Most of their stuff is about computer games (which I don’t really play) but after being with Paul for two and a half years (and he’s a big fan of computer games) I get a lot of the jokes now.

Also, our flatmate has ordered a large, flatscreen TV which should arrive next week. OMG how exciting. I may start watching a lot of TV and films again.

Lucy is coming down to London (from Edinburgh) next week which is very exciting. It will be so much fun to hang out and spend time together. The Saturday she is here, we are going to the London Zine Symposium which should be lotsa fun. I am hoping to have a new zine to take.

Oh, and Lucy recently posted a comment on my myspace with a picture of us four years ago when we first knew each other!

I wonder how Paul is going. His work is having ‘Bring your kid to work day’ today. They have a big open-plan office that is going to have forty-something kids in it today. Lol. Should be interesting.
