Now, where was I? Wednesday I would have spent a quiet evening in with emperor sorting out wedding stuff, but I was starstruck by wanting to see myself and the goths on telly, so went round to ewxs first. It's intreguing how excited people get about the prospect of being in the media. I wonder why? A bit of it is perhaps wanting to know what others think of us, needing to see how the media saw what we were doing, a rare opportunity to see ourselves through others eyes. And some of it is wanting to be prepaired; if there's a risk that the whole of the Whittle lab* are going to turn round and say "ha ha, I saw you on telly last night" you want to know what they really saw, instead of saying "oh, err, what did I do?". Anyway, I was on TV for about 5 seconds, as the out of focus nose-scratching background to Catriona taking communion, so that was all anti climatic. meirion read very well though - does anyone know where in the bible that reading's from?

Thursday I became frustrated and stressed at things, from plastic bags in the green bin, to marvelous jobs that happened to be in India, and confirmation services that happen to be on IVFDF** Sunday. I should try and make time to write about where I currently am with Christianity and confirmation, but not now. Now I should make time for stall cells. That evening I was very brave and went to the folk song singing session, and noone laughed at me when I opened my mouth, and I had a great time, and still have the log drivers waltz stuck in my head even now. Then I went to the Round, where I haven't been for far too long, and had fun dancing. I'm looking forward to Thursday evenings if they're like this for the rest of term :-) Walked back up to HHM talking to Alison.

*There was no risk of this, as Look East is between 6.30 and 7, and everyone knows noone leaves the Whittle before 8.

** I know I've been saying IVFDF is going to be wonderful for months now, but I've just seen the workshop timetable, and it really is going to be incredable. Go and have a look. Then book tickets - they're cheaper if you do it before the 31st of Jan.

I once appeared very briefly on television. They were doing a programme about the particularly dire block of flats where I used to live (the neighbourhood where I currently live is bad enough - those flats were worse), and they interviewed both me and ex-husband for about half an hour each. They showed one sentence from each of us, and mine was totally out of context; heard on its own, it made me sound as though I was terrified to leave the flat, which certainly wasn't the case. Of course I was cautious, especially after dark, but then you do get that way when you've had a death threat.

Alas, if only you were called Rosie (or, possibly, Craig) I could make Coronation Street type jokes.

Pity you weren't on The Telly for longer, you could have become a STAAAAAAR *G*

IVFDF is going to be wonderful

IF, that is, one has the correct ration of right and left feet.

Nah, a large part of it is English ceilidh dancing, where all you have to do is end up in the right place at the right time, and no-one really cares how you got there. I mean, there'll be exciting stuff with stepping in some of the workshops, and the scottish dancers will all be able to actually Dance, but there'll be loads of stuff for beginners too. And you can't argue you have no sense of timing or an inability to walk! :-)

I've been on the TV once and on the radio a few times, singing in various choirs or playing in bands. Apart from the last time (which was just a CD track) it's fascinating to see how it all works "behind the scenes".

The TV one was most interesting, because the audio was not recorded at the same time as the video. I think there were two audio+video takes and one take of just the audio. Presumably someone spent an afternoon stitching bits together to make it all nice and lovely.

I'd be interested to hear what's going on with confirmation. I'm quite surprised (given what we've discussed) that you'd go as far as getting confirmed.

Not much of an atmosphere, then?
