First Hangover Of The Year
As you know from yesterdays post I went out with my daughter and we met up with one of her friends while we were there. The atmosphere was amazing; England had literally just won their match and as we got out the taxi there was one almighty big roar and the street was full of people cheering, singing; it was hard not to be caught up in it all. It was electric it really was.
I Survived My Night Out Just
The prosecco flowed and then so did the cocktails. I didn’t get back home late must have been about 8.30ish but I was trollied. Also finished off some nachos, fries, and pizza. So my calorie count was way over the top but it was ok because I planned it. It wasn’t a case of going off the rails it was a case of having a night off. After the last week of Jean losing 4 friends in a dreadful accident, we needed it; I needed to feel alive and I certainly did. However, not feeling so alive this morning; I’m out of practice.
Back On It This Week
However, as mentioned yesterday I will be back on it this week because there is another birthday celebration on Wednesday. So roll on Bang Bang Chicken.
New Tattoo Booked In
I have my next tattoo booked in with the amazing tattoo artist Guy Fletcher whose work is just f*****g awesome. I have been wanting him to do one for ages and luckily for me a free date popped up which rarely happens. So I jumped on it – had to couldn’t stop myself really.
Stay True To Yourself
I love tattoos and would be covered if I had the money. The tattoo I will be having is an image off of an album cover. This album was the very first album I ever bought. It was Replicas by Gary Numan back in 1979. I was 10 years old. I love this album as much today as I did back then. In my top ten albums, this is my number one.
I think it is a great tattoo to get because next week will be my 50th birthday and I will have had that album at my number one spot for 40 years officially. Next year I might get another one with the image off of the other side – who knows.
Gary Numan is just a legend. He is a one of a kind he truly is. He has inspired so many bands and artists and was the founder of electronic music back in the day. This year he also had a number one album which was fantastic. This guy is a creative genius and a fantastic role model for people with Aspergers. I have lost count how many times I have seen him in concert. His concerts were always a fantastic show in themselves, the lighting, the sound, the atmosphere – I’m talking goosebumps.
What a lot of people don’t know is that the album Replicas was based on a story that he wrote. If you ever get the chance to read the lyrics of the songs it makes more sense. It gives you an extra dimension. In my eyes, Gary is on par with the likes of David Bowie etc. and about time he was recognised as such.
Right time for a cuppa and a lemon bar – I’m just so rock and roll me.
Catch you soon
