sometimes I get easily confused …

and I read too much into what people say or do.

I usually end up twisting myself into little knots worrying about what I’ve said, or what I’ve done, or what I haven’t said or what I haven’t done.  There are people in my life that I care too much about; and I care too much about what they think.

I don’t ever really want to get too personal here – but that’s it.  I care too freakin’ much.

I need to get well – I really do.  I’m so bored of being sick.
My first attempt at an ‘Art Journal’ – see my page here on Teesha Moore for one of my influences!

One Thing At a Time

Brian sent me links to the Dresden Dolls show at the Inaugeration – unfortunately they’ve all been removed by the looks of things, ooooh no they haven’t, they’re there again – HOORAH! {

Cover of War Pigs – FUCKING LOVE IT:

Good Day – OH YES 🙂

Cover of Blueprint – by Fugazi – such an awesome track – LOVE THIS:

Ahhhh … makes me smile 🙂

Only a couple of weeks to go until Amanda Palmer plays at the Electric Ballroom – wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee … and then a few more months until World/Inferno hopefully come back to the UK … fingers crossed.

I need to find another couple of bands to salivate over! ha ha.

blatherings on a Wednesday morning

So I’m not actually feeling ANY better – my throat still feels as though it has a bucket of razor blades thrown down it, my chest hurts and I feel like CRAP.  But let’s forget all that.

Yesterday I had over 500 visitors to my blog – OVER 500!!!! But none of them really stayed and had a look around.  I guess I’m just a boring tart.  Alphainventions.com is surely working, and I’m making sure that I read some peoples’ blogs that I read on it, however it’s just so godamned fast!  I kept clicking on the actual previews of the blogs and losing them – so now I know to click on the name to take me to them.  I LOVE random blog searching.

So what did I do yesterday?  Well, I started my 52Q mini-journal. I tried to photograph it using my phone – but I can’t work it out.  So I’ll have to photograph it properly and then post the photos in a bit.  I was fairly happy with it – I’m not very good at this perky scrapbooking lark.  We’ll see – most things I start I don’t follow through with.

I also created my ‘bird atcs’ for Mamma’s Monday Musings – again – still to post them.

When M got in from work I was watching the Inauguration – I thought he’d want to watch it but he just kept complaining about how long Obama talked for!  I thought it was an amazing moment – if only we had a leader who was that inspiring.

So Inspiring

So Inspiring

I remember when we voted Tony Blair into power so many years ago.  We had lived under ‘Tory Rule’ for so long that the change was so desperately needed.  We hailed him as a ‘saviour’ almost – then looked what happened.  It’s dangerous to deify a leader – afterall – something must be intrinsically ‘wrong’ with someone who wants to lead a country.  Can we truly believe that it’s for altruistic purposes? That they just want to see a ‘better world’? I’m sorry – I can’t.  Perhaps I’m cynical – perhaps I don’t trust human nature – but I simply cannot believe that someone who wants to run the world’s biggest super-power is not slightly meglomaniacal.

However – I think out of everyone he was the best man for the job.  I love to hear him talk, I love to watch him speak.  He feels genuine and I hope beyond hope that he is the one to change America.  I’m not American, but I realise how much of an influence that country has on ours and the rest of the world.

I wish I could have been in Washington for the Inauguration so I could have experienced a moment like that.  Also, obviously, so I could have attended this:

Rock the Vote - Inaugeration Party

Rock the Vote - Inaugeration Party

Brian was SO excited – he told me he’d bought his costume to wear.  I think it was so awesome that The Dresden Dolls got together again to play this – I doubt they’ll ever truly ‘part’.  I can’t wait to hear his stories of the day! Actually – it’s only 6:36am here – so I bet they’re still partying right now (don’t you DARE use ‘party’ as a verb in this shop – hee hee – just a quick quote from Black Books there).
