have a break

I am back from London! Where I bought a wedding dress, ate a lot, hung out with my hospitable sister and her beau, visited the surprisingly moving Highgate Cemetary and went on a huge walk, bought loads of cool books, and stood near Kevin Shields at a gig (he seemed quite friendly and ordinary, not the near-mythical recluse of my imagination) and had a lovely dinner with lots of lovely LJ folk. So, all in all, quite an eventful few days. I hope the rest of the week is not eventful at all, as I have taken it off work in order to knit, buy Christmas presents on line, and (tomorrow) visit my wedding reception location (Fallon and Byrne's, to those familiar with Dublin) and discuss exciting things like menus, etc. And also to watch the latest Project Runway, possibly my favourite programme in the world after 30 Rock these days. This series is shaping up to be particularly awesome, what with the usual assortment of bitchy divas, weepy babies and total freaking lunatics (I think viewers of the show know who I'm talking about here). All that and the glorious Tim Gunn! I'm enjoying my little bit of time off very much.

Oooh, yes, definitely! The gig was in the (Heavenly) Social, it was a regular kind of shoegazey night called Sonic Cathedral - Jenny's boyfriend's excellent band The Flowers of Hell were playing there. Kevin Shields's girlfriend's band were also playing, hence his presence! They were quite good although she was rather affected in a "oh, I am a shy little French girl, I will gaze at you through my fringe!" way. I wasn't surprised that Mr Shields was there, but I was still genuinely kind of awestruck - when I was 16 the fact that he and Colm O'Ciosoig were from Dublin was a huge deal to little Irish indie kids!
