My sunday..NOT a day of rest !
I was going to write a little something last night when I got in, but I was so drunk with sleep I had to just take myself to bed!
I had a crappy morning as I had to stand in the rain to watch my son kicking around a ball (why do boys love footbal so much...please tell me). My jeans were soaked by the time they finished and I felt all damp and disgusting. I couldn't wait to get home and get in the bath.
I chilled for a bit, listened to some music on youtube and then went to my rehearsal. It was a short one this time because I had to go and see my lovely friend Natalie Fiawoo perform at an event called 'Soulcial'. She's a great poet, but she pulled out all the stops and performed some songs too..and she rocked!
I also had the chance to catch up with some of my other talented friends, Jason Jermaine (finalist in Orange Unsigned Act, www.myspace.com/jasonjermaine) and Alexander Jackman(watch out for his book which will be released very soon). I love these two guys because they are so passionate about what they do and put so much energy into it. They WILL succeed!
So after watching Natalie belt out her tunes and captivate the audience with her poetry, I left the venue feeling high. There is a lot of talent in the UK and I feel lucky to have witnessed it first hand.
Unfortunately, the rodents of Brick lane nearly ruined my night (as I was walking back to my car I could hear sqeaks..eww the thought of it right now is making me shiver)...
Fortunately (and I know you're not supposed to talk to strangers in a dark alley), I met a nice gentleman carrying a saxophone, who kept me distracted from the 'rats' all the way to my car...I can't for the life of me remember his name, but I hope he contacts me on myspace (I took the opportunity to plug myself and I gave him a flyer!).
Feeling a bit peckish I opted for the late night Mc D's run and got a chicken nugget happy meal with a chocolate milkshake! Surprisingly, it filled me up...Am I the only full grown person who gets full up on a happy meal??? Please say no!
I got home in no time at all (and I wasn't speeding btw) and went to bed content. Entertained and belly full :)
