History repeating

20 Years ago, I missed Live Aid because my then boyfriend and I had tickets to the North Sea Jazz Festival. While the rest of the world was watching Queen and Bob Geldof and Phil Collins and George Michael perform, we were watching Oscar Peterson and Ella Fitzgerald and B.B. King in concert.

Yesterday, I missed Live 8 because I was spending the afternoon with db2305. We had lots to talk about and made plans to go on a shopping expedition to one of those newfangled outlet villages soon. When I came home, Peter Kay was entertaining the audience in Wembley. I don't think I missed anything.

I'm writing this entry as a test of Semagic -- db2305 swears by it, and it looked pretty nifty to me when she showed me. I hope I've downloaded and installed it correctly, but the proof of the pudding is, as they say, in the eating. I did find the Keywords-option though...right underneath 'Picture to use' in the latest release!

ETA: Yes, it does seem to work. Now let me play around and find a use for it...

ETA2: Oh, and another thing I found out about yesterday: LJ Book lets you turn your entire LJ into a printable .pdf-file...now I just need to find an opportunity for the laser printer at work to churn these 1200-odd pages out for me without Jobsworth or anyone else noticing.
