Fave Friday

Five Favourite Songs of the Moment

1. Billy Joel - Vienna. I think I like it so much partly because of the story that goes with it.

2. Calvin Harris - Ready for the Weekend. Very bouncy, and mentions shoes. I'd also like to be one of those happy posing girls in the video. I can totally flcik my hair just as good as they can.

3. Elton John - Tiny Dancer. I finally watched Almost Famous a couple of weeks ago and it made me go and find the song and listen to it, since I'd only heard the recent remix. I like to go, "Uh, yeah!" at random points to it and then snigger to myself about how I'm being Ironik, in more ways than one. It's probably only a joke that would make me laugh.

4. Empire of the Sun - Walking on a Dream. Just very chilled and relaxie.

5. Beyonce - Single Ladies. In large part because hearing it makes me remember one of my favourite Big Brother clips ever (another thing which is probably only amusing to a select few, but David really goes for it). There's also this funny SNL/Justin Timberlake effort. I think if Mizzy T ever does another school concert, she'll be doing this song.

Car's Henry again. The clutch is going. That damn garage! They jinx me every time! Last time I took it in was February when they said the suspension would need doing next service - and it went a week later. This week they told me my clutch was starting to smell a bit and might be on its way out. TWO FRIGGIN' DAYS later and it's bunny hopping through first and second. I just had an extremely tense drive home, over-revving and sticking to third gear + as much as possible, and think I've discovered what all that lovely remark money (which was supposed to be for sparkly kitchen tiles, a new coat and other fripperies) is going to be spent on.

Le sigh.

Oh well, c'est la vie. I always said I would keep Henry for six years and then trade him in, and it's six years this month, so I only have myself to blame.

....although, since writing the above, Mr Z has come home and declared it to be a problem with the exhaust. Since that sounds cheaper than a new clutch, I am hoping he is right - and it could be explained by that funny noise I heard on the way home Wednesday night, which I thought was a stick being thrown up by the wheel and striking the underside of the car.

Oh, the drama! I know, I know, you must be on tenterhooks....I'll keep you posted, don't worry.
