So [livejournal.com profile] catchmelike did the Year In Review meme, and I was thinking about it yesterday too. And when I looked, I realised that I didn't post in September or November. I think that's the first time since I got an LJ when there's been one month when I didn't post once, let alone two. And after I started the year so well!

So in an attempt to rectify, and possibly have an actual record of this year should I ever feel the need to look back, I've decided to do a few random posts focused on specific events that I never got around to posting about. These will probably be mostly pictures, but you know me, I talk a lot.

Catchup Post #1 - May 30th 2011 )

The next thing I decide to make a post about will probably be less picture heavy.

Another quiet day today - which has seen the beginning of 2011 being the year of nostalgia. I went in the bath with a book I haven't read for years and although I got out of the bath after an hour or so I have done nothing but continue to read it since then. It was Jennings Goes To School and I have been crying with laughter at it (and reading bits of it out to mam!) for hours. Brilliant book. So I'm going to make a list, I think. Of books and TV series or films I rewatch or reread.

Nostalgia for 2011 )

I'm also doing an icon rotation, because too many of my icons have gone unused over the last year or so.

Day 16 → A song that makes you cry (or nearly)
This is tough, because music doesn't tend to make me emotional. The only thing I can think of is that when I was driving up to Karen's the day we went to see Take That, singing along with Never Forget really loud in my car made me get all teary. I'm not sure why and it's never done it since! Not even later that night at the actual concert, ha! I think it was with excitement mostly. Ah, memories. That was the first time I drove my car anywhere other than to York, I'd only had it a couple of weeks and I ventured to Karen's house - exciting times!

The only other example I can give would be this one, which now makes me cry with laughter, and which (spoiler alert) I'm going to link to in every post I can get away with for the foreseeable future:



The rest of the days: )

So as I've failed in updating at ALL since the first week of June, I thought I'd do a quick update-by-photos. After a serious lack of live music in my life in the last couple of years (I think the last two were been Arctic Monkeys in July 07 and Spice Girls in December the same year), I've had a month of concertage. A rather strange mixture, but all equally excellent - Take That with [livejournal.com profile] fallen_wiccan, Boyzone on my own, Oasis with my Dad, Dave and Dave's fiancee Donna, and last night was Athlete with [livejournal.com profile] mrbuttmonkey, [livejournal.com profile] scourgeoe and [livejournal.com profile] fallen_wiccan.

Click for pics and brief reviewage! )

So that's that! Gig month is over - bring on nerd month! Or nerd week. Or even just nerd weekend, really, combined with HOLIDAY! The Virgin Atlantic website reliably informs me that there are 14 days, 17 hrs, 19 mins til our flight. [livejournal.com profile] fallen_wiccan, [livejournal.com profile] scourgeoe and I are going down to London on Saturday the 18th, staying over, swinging by LFCC on the Sunday, and then going to [livejournal.com profile] jainaj's on Sunday evening. On Monday the 20th at ten past three in the afternoon, the four of us plus [livejournal.com profile] fray101 and [livejournal.com profile] mrbuttmonkey are jetting off to LA, where we'll be til the Wednesday (and are going to do awesome things like the WB Tour, have drinks at La Cantina, go on a tour bus and visit Cold Stone Creamery) when we get the train to San Diego for Comic Con.

I can't believe it's just two weeks away! We've been planning it for so long and it's finally almost here - whee!

All I can say about Take That... well, not ALL, as I think I'll post more tomorrow, hopefully, but all I'm going to say now is... when can I do that again?? They were awesome.

Pics uploading at the moment but for the sake of people on my flist who may be going and don't want to know anything, one picture, under a cut...

Not really a spoiler as it's just a face shot. But you can see the shoulders of what he's wearing... )
