fat pony like thunder

(no subject)

Oof, I'm tired. I had a very stressful week, workwise, so it was lovely to go out last night with barsine, her beau, and our friend J-Gu. We ate vast amounts of food, I apparently talked ridiculously loudly (even more so than usual!), and we ended up in our usual haunt, upstairs in the Stag's Head, where to my delight we bumped into glitzfrau. I ended up staying there until about half past one (one of P's best friends is the manager, so we stayed behind after hours), and am now very, very tired and a teeny weeny bit hungover.

So tired, in fact, that I am in two minds as to whether to go to the Lali Puna gig tonight. On the plus side, I want to see the band, barsine is definitely going and glitzfrau wants to go too, and I don't want to spend Friday night home alone watching Coronation Street (which is pretty good at the moment actually, so perhaps it wouldn't be so bad settling in to see Cilla the pantomime dame gurn her way through another - curses what am I saying!). On the downside - the tiredness! And also, I'm getting my hair cut at four, which will take about an hour and a half, so I'll have to either hang around town afterwards waiting for the gig to start or go home for about five minutes and come back in again. Oh, the dilemma.

In other "news", I finally learned how to thread and use my sewing machine, which I got for my birthday. In September. Of course, I have nothing specific to make, so I just keeping "practicing" by sewing bits of scrap fabric together. Any suggestions for a simple first sewing project (biascut, I'm looking at you!)? I was thinking cushion covers....
