Happy now.

It's amazing what a little retail therapy can do to improve my mood. ~grin~ I had a really good singing lesson yesterday, the first lesson I've had since leaving college, and decided I'd celebrate by going out and buying some things. I've talked more about the music I got over on kittensounds if you're curious, but I want to squeak here because I am now the strangely proud owner of the 7" single of Duran Duran's 'Perfect Day'. I've always wanted to find this, not because I love the song (I do, but there are Duran songs, and indeed Duran covers, I like far more) but because the sleeve of the record is scratch 'n' sniff. And it was made in 1995 and still works and, and. I'm sorry, it's tragic, I know, but still. Surreal, but nice.

Elsewhere, in non-musical terms, I bought the most gorgeous book of Pierre et Gilles photographs (they make pictures like these) and, on impulse in Borders, a book called The Prestige by Christopher Priest. Since it came out in 1995, it seems likely that you've all long since heard of it and read it, but I hadn't, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Victorian stage magic and mysterious family secrets and all that sort of thing.

So, in short, yay for shopping. ~s~ I feel much much better now. Oh, and Gordon Ramsay is at Oxford Street Borders on the 4th of May. Am I sad enough to go and see him?

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
