This and that

The other day, I was reminded that I hadn't actually been to the dentist in a long time; so I called them today, and found out that the last time I'd been round for a checkup had been in March 2004. Huh. So now I've got an appointment for Feb 11th.

-------


It was my sister's birthday last week, and so we celebrated the fact this past weekend. I was going to get her a new ironing board for a present, but changed my mind at the last minute and bought her an mp3-player instead. I put a few of her favourite songs on it, too; and I think that as far as she was concerned, it was the best present I'd given her in years.

-------


I never thought I'd say this, but I almost regret having lost all that weight, as it means that none of my favourite clothes now fit. This includes my beautiful winter coat that I bought last year, which is supposed to be form-fitting, but now hangs off my body like a sack. I think I'm going to have to find somewhere where they can alter clothes, and hope they won't ruin it.

-------


This evening, there was an e-mail from Ben, David's management, confirming that they'll see me in Leamington Spa next week. That is assuming I can find my way out of Paris and onto the UK, of course.

Hmm - I think if I was your sister I would be much happier with an MP3 player than an ironing board, too!

Good luck at the dentist - my teeth are at least not painful any more!

I am not going to say 'sorry' about the coat - I am going to say 'Congratulations'!

:)

It's just that I couldn't think what to get her that she could use...then I remembered that she hasn't had an ironing board for years, but instead uses the dining room table. She had a house fire some years ago; an ironing board wasn't high on the list of replacement furniture needed, apparently.

But then I bethought myself that it might be a devilishly tricky thing to wrap, and abandoned the idea. I'm glad I gave her something she could get excited about instead.

Gah. That reminds me that I need to go to the dentist, too. And I'm sorry that your clothes don't fit. That is too bad.

There are some clothes I haven't even worn yet, and now I never will...But it's also the perfect excuse to go shopping for new stuff in Oxford St next week!

sounds curiously similar to an email I got tonight too..I hope he has been inundated.

Did you enter that competition for Storys tickets I Imd you the link to? Closing date is 1 Nov. It is a cheap gig - but nothing is cheaper than free.

You IM-ed it? I haven't switched on my computer for a while; I'll make sure to do that and look for it as soon as I get home tonight!

Hmm. I can't find it -- mainly because I don't know how to look up the message history, I guess. Oh well.
