Cross. Again.

This morning left me in a furious, snarling rage. I can't be bothered to explain - suffice to say that my mild-mannered assistant spent the hour between eleven and midday swearing like a drunken docker with Tourette's, and I positively stalked out of the office at lunchtime. Poor old Other Half - once more on the receiving end of one of my monumental huffs. To his credit, he cheered me up immensely – there he was, staring dreamily at flat-screen tellies and dancing to the piped music in a major electrical store in a particularly effete manner (the Other Half loves to dance. Most of the time it's like being at stage school - you know, the sort where the kids spontaneously erupt into a seamless yet unrehearsed full-scale production of West Side Story in the corridor outside the canteen just because, ooh, life is just so brilliant!!), when a voice over his left shoulder enquired politely as to whether he needed any assistance. He blushed scarlet and asserted that no, thanks, he was just looking and I tried very very hard indeed not to wee.

And woo! and yay! We're off to see Motorhead tonight. Tomorrow I shall be stone deaf (eh?) and infinitely more interesting*.


* Interestingness cannot be guaranteed.

How's your new boss doing? I always found they take some breaking in.

The gentlemen from Motorhead aren't being supported by those jolly nice children trained by Mr. Simmons from that television programme are they?

Even if not, hope you enjoyed the evening.

I SAID, HOPE YOU...

Oh, never mind...

There is a god! Lemmy be thy name! I worship every hair on his nasty old facial moles! :-/

No, the kids from Rock School have already done that gig...it was in London a few months back. Fortunately they're not doing the whole tour.

Sadly, on last years tour I spied that Lemmy is indeed going bald. Ok, he's 60 this year but for one of rock's enduring legends this came as a major shock to me as he hasn't really changed since the 70's.

BTW, his autobiography (White Line Fever) is really worth a read. If nothing else it confirms the medicinal benefits of a life spent taking speed !!!!!!!!!

last time i thought about a motorhead concert i was 17 and piercing a boy's ear with a safety pin. he asked me out and that was his "date" choice but there was something about the ear/blood/unhygenic combo that put me off the whole thing. now i wonder what i missed - have a top time.

Wish I was going to see Lemmy and the boys. Have never managed to see Motörhead as yet. Although did see Lemmy up on stage with the Ramones a few years back.
Greatist quote for a while "When I die I'm donating my body to medical science fiction" Lemmy in the Indy a couple of weeks ago.

I'm envious. The last time I tried to organise a full-scale dance number in my office, three gentlemen damaged things... rather important to them.

I suppose it's not called 'The Nutcracker' for nothing...
