The darkest night of the year.

I have finally done it now – Saturday morning I struggled up after a Friday evening with The SkaSouls and realised that I had shed far too many brain cells for my own good. Remember, I didn’t even drink any alcohol as a minor concession to the little matter of my thrombosis.

Having adjourned to

Caffeé nero

in Egham, I was on the laptop and I plugged in my headphones to enjoy (if I say it myself) some pretty cool sounds at full volume while I was on the net.

That was fun, until I was confronted by various customers complaining about the noise.

How silly can people get – isn’t it obvious I’m using earphones?

Except I finally realised that I’d put the plug in the wrong socket and the phones weren’t on.

Doh! Mr Bean goes to Egham. Mind you, it was a better class of music than usual.

Today (Saturday) is the winter solstice – the darkest night of the year. From now on the days slowly start to get longer as the earth’s tilt moves us a little bit nearer the sun. Can’t you just feel that new hope of spring in the air? OK, give it a month.

Instead of a bonfire to celebrate (been there, done that) I’m off to see The Highs on Saturday night.

Mmmmmh, Modnight for the longest night.
