Blogging on a meal break (no food being consumed)

Still no internet access at home and probably won't get it back until I move in approx 6 weeks time. Still got to find a new place, and hopefully cheaper so that I can stop donating the majority of my funds to paying off someone else's mortgage and save for my own.

Blogging on a meal break before I pop back upstairs for overtime. Thinking of the money. My throat doesn't want to cooperate. Too many phone calls where I had to do too much talking today so tomorrow for Australia Day, I think I will take a vow of silence. Hard though with my partner, he doesn't stop talking and expects me to answer.

Still stagnating a bit with the writing - probably has gone up by about a thousand words but I need to get my act together. Just reread Stephen King's On writing which is inspirational.

Musical memories

That word count is starting to look very nice. Amazing what I can do with no internet, no television.

Still been watching movies. A DVD player and a data projector, and we have a home cinema and the cat is freaking out at the helicopters flying into the lounge room. Actually, I think he's quite amused by it, but he does leave the room or sulk under the table if it gets too noisy.

With the current musical obsession, I asked my partner the other day who he had seen in concert. So while I have seen Eurythmics four times, Transvision Vamp, Sandii & the Sunsetz, Hoodoo Gurus, Divinyls, Bachelor Girl, Leonardo's Bride, Chris Wilson x numerous incarnations, Moving Pics (as we know from my blog), Prince, Uncanny X Men, QED (Jenny Morris), k d lang, Jane Siberry, the Cranberries, Dynamic Hepnotics, Jon English, Tiddas,Deborah Conway, The Badloves, The Angels, Bjorn Again, jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss (but NOT Cold Chisel), Wendy Matthews and that's just what I can dredge up from my memory, he has never paid to see a live act because they're too expensive. Actually, I don't think he even listens to music for pleasure (just for work because he's a DJ). Well he's going to have to listen to some music now because he's in for a retrospective from my CD's.

So who have you seen live?
