my little broom broom (Friday December 3rd, 2004 - 22:55)

I haven’t got a car but I’m certain if I did I’d spend plenty of time tinkering around under the hood poking various bits and parts to see what’s going on. This site is my car incognito. I may be sleepy eyed but I still find it relaxing to move a little bit of code from here to there, to top up its oil, to give it a lick of paint.

On the subject of cars, I found out today that the upcoming work Christmas do involves going along to Kartatak for some team go karting and general mayhem. I can’t wait to try and do my Kimi-taught manoeuvres, see my lap times to 1/100th of a second, but I’ll be keeping my fingers and toes firmly crossed that I don’t suffer the Finnish curse of a dramatic engine blowout. I wonder if my zooming ontrack time can be added to my learner driver’s log book…

In other things.. last night went along to Spectrum again, this time to check out New Zealanders Die! Die! Die! who.. er.. shucks.. I can’t really comment apart from saying I don’t get it, I don’t get the fuss, I really really don’t. The Morning After Girls on the other hand were stunningly lovely and I want to check them out again. Very sweet sounding tunes (not as JAMC nodding as I’d been led to believe although one song borrowed heavily from Teenage Lust), great vocals, good looking style and I’m looking forward to hearing their EP in January. Well worth needing tons of coffee to stay alert throughout Friday.

A few old school indie sorts were there including Simon Day from one of my favourite bands of youth-hood, RatCat. I had to ask him what he thought of the first band and he thought they were fantastic. Umm. Ok. Each to their own.

I should have gone out to a gig tonight but the coffee stopped working hours ago and I have Christmas shopping to continue tomorrow with a probable gig in the evening at the Annandale to check out the Spazzys for the 2nd time and the Crusaders who I’ve heard a rave review about.
