let's fade together, let's fade forever

Is it leaking stuff on the internet if I tell you that Franz Ferdinand's 'Fade Together' is one of the most gorgeous songs I've heard in a very long time? It's the sort of song made for listening to while curled up on the couch smoking a cigarette and looking out at the rain. Which is a good thing, really.

In other news, this evening jane_the_23rd and I are going to go for cocktails in a fancy-pants hotel. Well, probably one cocktail each, as we are too poor to afford very many. But still! The glamour! Never fear, glitzfrau, there's still some glitz to come back to!

You really are making me jealous!
I'm really looking forward to the new album. I saw them when they played the Ambassador last year, and they were mind-bogglingly good.

Me jealous also! And also that you get to go for cocktails with jane_the_23rd! Talk about archaeology a little bit for me, kay?

We talked a little about archaeology. Just a little. By the way, there's a food and drink session at the European Association of Archaeology conference this year! http://eaacork.ucc.ie/abstracts.html#ralph

I'm not going, though. Have to start me a new job at the very same time. Bah.

And we always talk about how you should be coming over here to hang out and giggle and rant and drink fancy cocktails.

Hooray! But say it ain't the Morrison?
Aug. 26th, 2005 02:17 pm (UTC)
No! It is a CHEESY fancy hotel. The Morrison is too pseudo-trendy.

Yes, and Glitzer, we talked about how we're looking forward to your return, too! Yay! I know leaving Berlin will be very sad, but look! The GLITZ AWAITS LA GLITZ!

FF will be playing the Point here in November - and in Belfast the night after. I think I'll try to go to both shows, how exciting!

Theres a chance I just might be going to the same fancy pants hotel with another LJ-er for cocktails tonight - if I think I see someone who may be you should I just start talking about FF at full volume?

Heh, please do! If you see two small dark-haired young ladies who look somewhat out of place under the chandeliers (sp? That looks wrong, possibly because I rarely get opportunities to use that word), say hello! Or, you know, start singing 'Take Me Out'. We're going at six, though, so our money may have run out by the time you get there (or we may be so drunk on our one potent cocktail that we've been thrown out).
Aug. 26th, 2005 02:58 pm (UTC)
I reckon it'd be a fair bit later if I do get there... but if I see anyone who fits the bill, I'll say hello. I might even offer you some of my free nuts and crisps!

We had TWO cocktails each and gorged ourselves on peanuts. So much so that I couldn't even finish the SUSHI I ordered when we went for food! It's been years since I actually had something wrapped up to take away, but I couldn't manage it. Crazy.

Too bad we didn't meet you!
Aug. 27th, 2005 10:28 am (UTC)
Whoa, how many peanuts did you have?! I never even made it close to the hotel that shall not be named in the end, which is probably just as well, as I had my credit card on me, and those cocktails can be mighty tempting...

Ah, but we justified it by calculating by time. We nursed two cocktails each for three hours, and spent forty quid in all, which is cheaper than my usual tipple in a pub. If we were really lushes, and actually calculated by unit of booze, it'd be 'good value'. But none of that matters: it was the pure relaxitude, peanuttery and swank that made it fun.

Yum yum! And now I have leftover California roll in my fridge to eat for lunch -- triple yum!

Gah!! Am getting more and more impatient for the damn CD to just come out already OMG!!!

Tell me when your article comes out and I'll go pester my local Barnes and Noble to order me a copy of the paper you don't name.
