Hey so I have some awesome news which is awesome -
This Friday, we're playing a festival... (wait for it)
in a castle... (wait)
on the beach... (holy crap wait)
in Brittany! (oh my gosh isn't that amazing?)
Yes, yes it is. This band the Horrors pulled out, and our hopefully soon-to-be booking agent in France offered us their slot, with all expenses paid. That includes food, van hire, ferry crossing, and a stay in this hotel. Heck. Yeah.
Plus the other bands playing are amazing - My Bloody Valentine, Tortoise, Grizzly Bear, Peaches - although we'll miss most of them as we have to return to London on Saturday to play a show on Sunday at a slummy pub. Aw...
It was pretty funny, we got invited yesterday, and when I got home from work Joe told me all about it. And believe it or not, I initially considered saying no, because I have a shift at work on Friday, and we're pretty understaffed at the moment. I went upstairs for a bit to think about whether I could get off work...
Then I realised I would be a complete idiot to say no to a festival in France just because of a job that I don't even like that much. It was a bit of a duh moment once I thought about it. Good times.
So, what else? These are some of my favourite photos from the wedding, possibly all taken by Bridget...
I must get around to getting them printed, it would be nice to own some photos to show people, especially people at work. A girl there recommended a place that does really cheap prints from CD - as a way of describing how cheap, she mentioned they do A3 size prints for a pound each... Now I can't stop imagining how awesome it would be to have enormous photos of everyone.
Okay, so that's all really. Just wanted to remind you I exist. 'Cause I do and all. It's a hobby of mine.
