Day 185: Saturday 31 October

A very late blog update today. This is because I didn’t get out of my pyjamas until 3pm.

That karaoke sure can take it out of you. As you have no doubt noticed I am also a little hoarse today courtesy of karaoke.

For the record I think one of my favourite OMG moments last night was Trix’s rendition of Abba’s “Does your mother know” with a very punky chorus added by moi and my bro. Another overwhelmingly emotional highlight was a spine tingling duet of ‘Summer Lovin’ from MrPN and MsJS, and then there was the all hands on deck sing-along version of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Don’t Stop’.

Off to work soon, although you wouldn’t know it from my down played denim do.


Looking a little black under the eyes, t-shirt to match

Top: Going for a classic double denim look today with the casual over-the-shoulder Levi’s jacket

Bottom: The jacket combines seamlessly with vintage Levi’s flares, not visible from this extreme angle

Accessory: Hand crafted denim bag, gifted a few years ago from the White-Ramsay fashion label of LA

Now on to a little whinge.

As I was catching the train into the city last night I happened to pick up Friday’s MX. Reading reading reading and I came across this little slice of vox pop…


Everyone's entitled to their opinions, except when it comes to dissing denim

Well! Mr Steffan (with a double F!!! WTF!!). If you’d seen how incredible I looked last night in my “leggings that look like jeans with the fake stitching” I am certain you would have an about face in your misconceived anti-denim prejudice. Don’t knock fake denim leggings ’till you’ve tried ’em. That’s all I’ll say Mr Double eFFan.

      The only reason I was still in my jim-jams at 3pm was because I was feeling under the weather.

    Yes me FF has no idea- legging are VERY helpful with those short skirts. Other wise he would have to whinge about women wearing inappropriate knickers with mirco minis.

    weller weller weller uh tell me more. Thankx I had a mini-hangover this morning, although unlike some layabouts I had to be up at 8 for the blinds man.

    At the risk of being accused of banging ones own tambourine I do think me and MsS’s powerful re-imagining of “The Morning After” was an emotional hi-water mark. Talk about upside down in the Atlantic, bloody hell.

    solitaire was the nadir for me, without any melodic hints from the machine, it was just a big blank! I sensibly didnt get drunk, though that may have hindered me artistically.

      Karaoke is impossible without booze.
      You need the confidence and lack of self awareness that a few drinks can bring.
      Because singing is untenable if you are nervous.
      In my case singing i ALWAYS untenable, but what the hell.
      I just commit to it, who cares if eardrums burst???
