Smalltalk ;-)

Good morning, LiveJournal. :-)

Nope, nothing much to say really; I am going to let this post be the repository of various minutiae that are too dull to crochet up into something more meaningful.  So... just a bit of smalltalk, a few tangled skeins in assorted colours...

Speaking of assorted colours, item one: HAIR.  Phew, thank god, I look like me again - that is to say, I coloured me hair again last evening.  So now I look like my userpic once more.  Nothing makes me feel more annoyed with my reflection than unappealing hair.  The main reason why I put it off for so long was... sheer terror at the prospect of dyeing the floor purple again. :-(  I don't want to get into trouble for being a careless harlot.  So I was a diligent, meticulous harlot instead, and pretty much covered the entire bathroom with plastic binbags before commencing to empurple my barnet. ;-)  Result: glamour AND smugness! ;-P

I'm thinking about making a post all about Snakefinger, a relatively unsung (and sadly mourned) musical phenomenon.  But I don't want to do 'Song of the Day' on him, I'd rather do more of an Almanacke of M.-style authoritative encyclopaedia style spiel.  We'll see.  If I can get the hang of the doohickey in GarageBand, I could even make a podcast!  Or... no, perhaps not.  I don't think anyone wants to hear my speaking voice at that kind of length.  There is a danger that it would sound like an episode of some self-consciously stagey music show from about 1975. x__x

Today the sun is shining, the sky is blue, it's a wonderfully Autumnal day, and this makes me happy.  I LOVE this weather!  It's my favourite weather of all, apart of course from monster rainstorms (whenever I encounter monster rainstorms, I seem to make a post about them.  On that note, and to draw the threads of this missive together neatly, yesterday as I listened to dear ol' Snakey singing the lyrics, "I'm living in vain/Just watching the rain" - yep, you guessed it... it started raining.  You'd better give me advance warning if you're getting married or going for a ten mile hike or something, so that I can select a more forgiving playlist!).

Today is also, I have decided, 'Captain Beefheart Day' in my office (not that anyone else is aware of this solemn occasion, but still... perhaps I mean it is 'Captain Beefheart Day' in my MIND...).  'Shiny Beast' accompanied my walk to work and I'm just getting to the end of 'Safe As Milk'.  Next up: the TRUE 'hipster totem' (more so than 'Trout Mask Replica') - 'Lick My Decals Off, Baby'. ;-)  You're not a true music snob unless you rate 'LMDOB' above 'TMR'. ;-D  (I'll refrain from pinning myself down one way or the other on that point, methinks...)

Time for a singalong now.

All together now, 1 2 3...

"Rather than I want to hold your hand,
I wanna swallow you whole
'n I wanna lick you everywhere it's pink
'n everywhere you think
Whole kit 'n kaboodle 'n the kitchen sink
Heaven's sexy as hell
Life is integrated,
Goes together so well
'n so on
Well, I'm gonna go on 'n do my washing
Well, now you may think I'm crazy but I want you to
Lick my decals off baby
'n I don't want you to be lazy
'cause it's drivin' me crazy
'n this song ain't no sing-song
It's all about the birds 'n the bees
'n where it went all wrong
'n where it all belongs
'n the earth all go down on their knees
lookin' for ah little ease
She stuck out her tongue 'n the fun begun
She stuck out her tongue 'n the fun begun
She stuck it out at me, 'n I just thumbed my nose
'n went on washing my clothes."

Can it be true that Mr Vliet claimed that this song was not meant to be naughty and flirtatious?!  Hmm, how v. disingenuous. ;-)

Have yourselves a lovely Autumn day, my friends. ^_^

I like Snakefinger's cover of "The Model" better than the original.

Nothing worse for those amongst us that colour their hair than to go out in the Sun and be exposed a shade 1000 times lighter then one intended in the bathroom at home!

Ah, well, given that the stuff costs £3.98 from Superdrug I shan't worry too much! No great hardship to do it again in few weeks. ^_^

Besides, a charming work colleague of mine keeps noticing my hair. Every time he sees me he remarks upon the fluctuating colours. "Ah," I told him, last time; "I am fading, like Autumn, you see." ;-P

I cannot begin to ever imagine you like a fading flower!

Your current user pic reminds me a lot of George Harrisson, except you are much better looking than he, your major advantage being female for starters! *giggling*

Why, thank you! Well, not so much a fading flower, more a constantly shifting landscape of colour. ;-)

George was definitely my favourite Beatle, so I completely approve of your comment. ;-)

Eavesdrop, snoop, and sigh with yearning...

This journal is not a private diary, it is more like an occasional, imaginary column. Therefore, much of it is on public display. However, if you want to read my occasional attempts at creative writing, my Caution Elf tells me I should only show that stuff to my friends. You know what to do. :-)

NB: If you add me in an unsolicited fashion, please introduce yourself. Otherwise I will probably ignore you.
