Friday's trip to the RAH with my dad went surprisingly well. I had very low expectations for the whole thing, but the orchestra and the choir were fantastic, the cameos not too cringeworthy, and the company was lovely. All in all a smile inducing evening.

Sunday saw me dragging my housemate to Chigwell to collect an organ. D very kindly drove me in his estate, which was just big enough when we sawed the top off the organ. We brought it back and M and I stripped it down and blew the dust off it, not to mention the spiders, snails and a particularly beautiful peacock butterfly. It works. It's mine. It cost me £1 so I can quite happily go at it with a hammer, saw, screwdriver and paintbrush and make it even more mine. It's lovely, and when you pump it hard enough, Loud.

Right now I'm procrastinating as I really should be writing material for friday night. Anyone have any ludicrous nightmares? It would help.

Since the choir included the estimable purplepiano, how could it be otherwise?

Sounded fun - I look forward to the DVD.

It was really nice to meet you at last, albeit briefly :)

I had thought it was going to be a bit more python and a bit less operatic - but it was good nethertheless.

You have an organ now- thats pretty cool, post a picture.

I dream of metal spiders all the time, not sure there is much you could get out of that.

I haven't seen you in a very long time. Lets meet up when you are in Coventry for Christmas, it'd be nice to catch up.
