I had to leave the birthday do a bit early as I was going to <ahref="http://www.anorakforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3356">this gig</a> and it was a little disappointing. The two supports were a bit bland, both playing mostly instrumental stuff that wasn't unpleasant, but wasn't especially interesting. It ended up being nice enough background music while I sat at the back and read my book. Still Corners, who I wanted to see were excellent, but a 25 minute set left me feeling a little short-changed. Having said that, it was only £4 in.
The buses worked well enough tonight. There was one there straight away after I left the pub, another there straight away after the gig and then a 144 was there at Turnpike Lane to bring me to the door. And then, when I got home the laser pointer I ordered had arrived. It turns out to be the most fun you can have with cats.
