Fete de Travaille

I want to book my summer holiday. I'm getting so impatient. But MSN is fantastic, at least it means we can discuss things quickly.

So as I suspected Estrella is not into the idea of India in summer, so she's thinking this Christmas instead. OK, so I'm thinking that the first time we hit India it's probably not a good idea to go in full monsoon season, but... Xmas in India rather depends on this whole flat buisness. There are so many ifs and buts and its all getting rather complicated. I suppose the one good thing is that I've got a million options for future holidays. And Estrella definitely wants to go to India one day, but I guess for this year it will be Bali... after I've done a little more checking out.

I'm listening to Rumours by Fleetwood Mac. There are some songs I can't listen to and I think that I would hate Tango in the Night (which I also have) now, but I love Stevie Nicks' voice. Apparently I taped this on the 15th January 1989. I thought that I'd had the LP's for longer than that. I had this silver Sony (or Sharp or something) record player that played both sides of the record. So the turntable didn't support all the record. If the LP's were a bit warped, when I taped them then there was this bump sound. When I bought this cheapo piece of shit stereo in November, this was the first casette I ressurected. I cried when I heard that bump sound. Probably a mixture of regret that I was in the same situation I was in when I first listened to the LP (although I hadn't had my heart broken yet) and that line in Landslide:
"...and I've been afraid of changing,
cos I built my life around you."

Oh bitter regret!

But on a lighter note the COW PARADE has arrived in Paris. I want to see ALL of them. 1st stop Rue Matignon 8eme. OK actually it's Avenue Matignon and you start from the rond-point and then go up the avenue. How exciting!

Thanks for using my pseudonym!!! I assume "Cow Parade" was not full of real cows...?
