Where did the week go?

It is Friday again, and I have no idea where the week went to!

I am hot. My office is currently 29 C, which is good for here. It was even hotter earlier when we had the TV cameras here with spot lights blasting in our faces! FAME!!!! Hah! Luckily I had very little to say to the cameras, I was making the computer do its stuff instead. Even so, with the heat and constant retakes I found it very tiring.

It reminded me of when I was in bands - we would go out and do gigs, playing away, everything went OK because it HAD TO. You can't stop half way through a song and say "Sorry, fluffed it a bit there, can I start again?" You keep going. When we did stuff in studios it was totally different. "Guitar solo, take 35", or "Lead Vocal, take 47" was the order of the day. That was tiring, especially when my 2 takes of bass had been done 3 hours ago! :-(

Anyway, the weekend looks like being just as good as it is now, so woo hoo! Might even go for a splash in the sea! That will wake me up! Then maybe a bit of sitting in the garden, playing guitar with the headphones on while downing a few cold beers. Ooh yeah!

Have a great weekend!

I'm not normally a beer drinker, but something about how golden and foamy it looks, and the beads of cool water on the glass it just looks like it's going to be so refreshing!

I had a beer last night because of that...

Finally catching up on blogs, loved the description of sleeping on a hot night...it's been horribly hot on our vacation! but htankfully the nights have been perfect in the airconditined hotels/brother's house.
