Exciting Times

Good day at work yesterday; busy, challenging, and one where some long-term results were finally realised. It’s the biggies that count most. I topped it off with a couple of pints of Guinness in Clark’s afterwards. Sorted.

Not much else done because the results I spoke of didn’t actually happen until between 7.30pm and 9.30pm, so I was pretty tired by that point and needed some rest. It was worth it though.

I posted off my some poetry submissions to an anthology and sent in my entry to the From Festival short story competition. Fingers crossed for both of them.

I’ve got a good weekend planned. Later I’m going to head up town for a coffee and to do some writing, then I’ll be back in time to watch St. Mirren hump Rangers in the 5th round of the Scottish Cup, live on BBC1.

The Six Nations Championship also gets underway today although Scotland don’t play until tomorrow. France at home. Oh dear! It’s all on the BBC again but other than the Scotland game I want to actually get through some serious writing.

I think tonight might be a curry and DVD night with my wife. If she can’t, it will be a curry and DVD night for me instead. She’s very busy with photography just now—weddings and portrait shoots almost every weekend!

Hopefully my new glasses will be available for collection at some point today or tomorrow as well. Exciting times, indeed.

Some music news: If you’re in the States make sure you don’t miss your chance to catch The Specials playing their first U.S. shows in nearly 30 years. Only two dates so far but you won’t be disappointed and tickets are bound to go fast.

Speaking of British ska, here’s a cool video of Mike Barson from Madness putting the new KORG SV-1 keyboard through its paces while on tour in the UK last year.

Good luck to the Buddies for today!!
