album - ravel (not k&w)

EDIT:
Took the day off work as I don't believe in working on February 29th. This being my only chance to go into town for a week, attempted to shop for all the things I might be needing. Also checked in at the watch shop to see what had happened to my watch. Bought some music, some paper, some sweets. Then to the V&A to watch Noises Off. As they were setting up for the Friday Late, there was a lot of noise coming from the theatre next door, and all but one of the chairs had vanished. I sat in the middle of the space on the only chair laughing my head off (and in black tie, I might add). PH came to switch the posters for next month's schedule. Lovely to see him.

Left before the end to meet ELSC oout of work and joined her on the train from Paddington to Oxford. From the station to Lincoln college and to the TAFF annual dinner. I wore black black tie (DJ with black shirt, tie and cummerband and even a black rose just for the hell of it). Lovely dinner. So nice to see old faces, and so nice to meet the new blood, although a little worrying to find some who were 8 when I matriculated. After dinner drinks inevitably sprawled on. Left in the wee small hours and caught the Oxford Tube with K who fell asleep on me. From Victoria the one bus home and then, very quickly, sleep.

Album of the day was a selection of Ravel's Orchestral Works. This, having been recorded by someone who cared, was too quiet to listen to on the tube through my creativebrandimitationipod, which had been designed for pop music. However, it was fine on the bus and the train. It was very good, but didn't thrill. And each time the Bolero came around I just started singing the old Kit and the Widow filk.
