a shout

Gosh, 1/3 of December has passed.

Happy birthday to Nick, the pianist of the Dead Sea Sound!

The past week I was kept busy, the fun part included: lunch with friends, with flatmates, a Nick Drake concert, K&K's birthday gathering, C's house party, and two Asian parties last night. New faces and old friends, good food and far too much alcohol, little sleep. Blue skies and walking home in drizzle. Mulled wine and mince pies. A couple of Xmas cards.

Oh, home alone now. pretty scared..
Wish I could suddenly become a braver person. No problem with going to concerts myself; no problem with cycling by myself in the middle of the night; absolutely ok to be among loads of strangers; sitting in a pub in London myself when I desperately need a drink; being in a foreign country where people don't speak Chinese or English, fine...

but I just find it extremely unbearable to know I'm by myself in my own house.
(i'm not kidding, but why am I like this?)
I'm not even bored or left with nothing to do.
(OK, let's hope after this shout, I will miraculously become slightly braver..)


Just gotta put up with what is unbearable, don't I?

'Sitting in a pub in London myself when I desperately need a drink' - I think you have a problem Wanyu!!!

Hey Wanyu! Chin up, ok!! It's not for long and your flatmates will be back before you know it. Enjoy having the house to yourself - play lots of loud music and have parties!! I know what you mean about being in a place on your own. It is for such a short time though...

I know... sadly I have loads of problems...

Does anyone want to cook for me tomorrow? I'm free...

Jenny, can you and Annemarie come to the Leeds Beth Orton gig? It's cheaper I think...I just feel if you gals will see her too, and me too, then we could as well go together... but i've got my tic already so I can't change that...

And also, I hope Richard is not thinking I'm forcing him to go to see Nick Cave in Feb(you're not, right??)

jennywren said...

I'll ask Annemarie about Beth Orton in Leeds. She may want to go in Manchester though since she lives there... But Leeds would be better for me. Remind me to ask her.

I'm sure R doesn't think you're forcing him. You met R once, you know... at York train station that day we went to see A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Richard said...

Not feeling forced! Nick Cave is cool, like I said. I'm going to find out where this playhouse is (never heard of it before).

Yeah, cheer up! People will be back soon, and there's always your online buddies.

PS How did you manage to see a Nick Drake concert?

PPS Will you be leaving York for the holidays? It would be nice to meet non-briefly sometime!

Demi said...

Oh you ARE a brave girl! I'm on my way to York now. Hang in there!!

guys, I'm really touched you left me warm msgs.. *sobbing* My guest just left for his office. =(
I think I'll just go to sleep in a bit or I might just go so frightened and fainted in the end anyway...demi, you have to come back soon...

But I just heard I'm invited to a New Year party. Yeah!! Not sure if it's for count down. If it is it'll be fantastic! Looking forward to that very much indeed!! Any of you up for this??

Cheers, Jens, about asking AM about coming to Leeds...hope she won't hate me...

and OF COURSE I remember having met Richard at the station! (with AM, right?? on their way to Italy with Jens' sleeping bag...)

Richard,
the nick drake concert I was referring to is a tribute concert by a trumpeter called Nick Smart and his band... My review is there for you to read now... And it would be excellent to finally meet you properly!! if we do go to see nick cave that'll be absolutely great!

:)

The party sounds like fun! Where's it at? I have a feeling Julia (my Julia) might be having something at her house, but I'm not sure. If she is, I reckon we'll end up watching the videos of when R, AM and J etc went on that trip to Belguim (don't we watch that every year??)

I don't like to do the same thing every year, I always look for something new...

A bit worried about going to France because I forgot almost all my French, and the last time I went was back in 1993. Well, I'm sure my brother will be taking me to place, like what my younger brother did when we were in Venice and Berlin last summer...
