fishy wishy

(no subject)

Ok.. firstly... a quick word about LOTR: The Two Towers - Like the book its not as good as the first, but with some very good moments. Of cource go to see it, and its worth it just for Gollum, who is probably the most subtly and sensitivly portrayed character in it.

There... got that over with.

Today was good, better than yesterday. Baring any accidents this could actually be a good week!

This morning I got a card from Brandismandywandypoo! Yay! Only a few ways that could have got my day off to a better start and most of them are imposible.. so yay!


The day at the Hermit was better than yesterday.. got lots done too! I know! How wierd is that?
But onto yesterday night....

It was the Jazz nights christmas gig, their last this year, so it was goign to be good. They were opening early and were even having lots of food downstairs.

I feel I should say a bit about the jazz club to explain why its so good.... here goes

Moving on... famous people at the Hermit! Jamie Cullem was there as pianist and general useful vocalist. The fact that he wasn't there as the main act suprised me. This guy is great. He's my age, yet one of the best male jazz vocalists in the world today. I got him to sign a CD for me.. he's such a nice guy too, we were talking for a while while he took a break. Such a passion for the music.

If you don't know of him then you don't know Jazz, and you all should check him out.

The others were Derek Nash (great), and the Ray Gillato Trio (also great). Derek is a very funnny man.

So yeah... afterwards I ate some of the food that was still there, then headed on home. Where I charged my camera back up and took these pics...

The last photo ended up becoming a new icon.. I have ooodles of icons now.. I wonder when they stop.

For all of you that gave me your addy's... the cards are going out tomorrow. Yes its a bit last minute I know, but should be ok. We'll see. Prezzies are going out too.
