This is a complete 180 from the exhaustion and despair I felt last night (and the bloody thing only made page 7, too, so I guess they knew it was already yesterday's chip wrappers when they gave it to me). All it took was a minor dose of Chris Isaak. I nearly didn't go. The last time he was out here and I had tickets I just went home because work had me so fragged. Big mistake. Sure I was on my chinstrap and sulking and grumping through the first three songs, but by the fifth or sixth I was up dancing. Now that, folks, is magic.
It was a great show, more theatre than anything else, but I do so like a bit of showmanship, so I was happy. I was laughing and clapping and jumping up and down. They did a lot of my faves (I have a lot of faves, he'd be there all night), the spangly suits came out and I really did forget all my troubles, as promised. Truth in advertising. The man could never be a politician, then.
Got my cd signed, hopped straight into a taxi and whirled home in time to watch Atlantis with a nice hot cup of tea. A fine night out (after a c*nt of a day).
So the next morning, my story started moving again. Of course, it usually does when I spin a bit of Chris, and this was better than just a cd. Dear Chris: fic enema. I bet he'd be pleased to know that. But whatever works, right. I am soooo glad I decided to go along, because I so nearly didn't.
I also did a good deed for the day, which should make up for my non PC remarks yesterday. The turkeys need to try harder today. Now, if I could only finish that last scene, then I'll be back onto solid ground again with the fic.
Okay, spoke too soon The turkeys just tried harder. I should have known better than to throw down a challenge like that...
But wait, there was chocolate cake. I think I'll just go home and watch the Bullshitters. Fly me to the moon... (and you who you are, wot started me humming that little ditty).
