Completely forgotton what I wanted to blog...all I know is that I was planning one in my head and it has disappeared! So if I remember I'll pepper my post with links before I forget them again.
I am completely knackered though (ooh some Arctic mash ups for you ), little man had some kind of rearrangement in there last night and has now left me with little feet in my ribs, terrible heart burn and general uncomfortableness. However that SPD malarky is getting much better after a physio realigned my wonky hips!
We've done a bit of baby shopping, got my slings now, ordered some nappies (rather cutely named diddy diapers and bimbles), got a few clothes but don't need many really and basically just need to think of some names for this new person!
Has to be (apart from labour I suppose!) the hardest part. I just get all distracted by funny names..we got hold of the top 2000 boys names of last year and were rather surprised to find the name Baby appearing. Perhaps they were as stuck as we are!
What else have I been up to other than massive consumption of tea (decaf mostly) and vast amounts of biscuits, watching Lay and getting more round? Getting DJ's to play Machadaynu in pubs...listening to music, isn't myspace fab for finding new stuff? I quite like this new Orson band, they remind me of Hot Hot Heat crossed with Boston. The new Rakes tune is great too, Jarvis Cocker meets the Bravery methinks! I've heard the B side of Maximo Park's I want you stay will include La Quinta and a rather ELO style remix. Can't wait to hear what that would be like.
Oh yes talking of music..my poor PC is more stuffed than me. No more room for even one more song on my music hard drive! Oops!

Just a thought - never in my life have I heard the term "stitch 'n' bitch" until this week..then I hear it 3 times from different places. It's bit odd that!

Oh no I'm old now, way too near to 30 for my liking! So why do I still not feel like a grown up? Now 27, almost 3 children, married and mortgage yet I have the mind of a 19 year old student (sadly not the body though). Which I will now prove by now going off to watch Look Around You series 2, scoff a takeaway, and eat some Gu puddings. What shall I have; indian, chinese or pizza?
So I'm off now. Oh just leaving a note to remind myself Maximo park and the Go! Team are on TOTP next week so for once it might be worth watching. Mind you the Kooks were on this week.

I've recently been compiling my vast collection of covers into one folder..trying to tidy up my mp3's a little. Almost filled up the hard drive assigned to just music so we are looking at storage issues for the future. Looking at one of those Buffalo Tera Stations, That may just satisfy us for a few years to come. Anyway back to covers,

I was making a compilation of my favourites for a friend so thought I'd add a few to my radio player (you'll find that on myspace, linky to the right) and gained a few additions from this Take Your Medicine Blog. The podcasts from Coverville are full of gems.

Well I'm expecting more like 17-18 though, i tend to incubate my boys a little longer and I reckon I'll refuse induction so I'll still be here blogging at 43 weeks moaning about how fat I am.

The genius that is Look Around You series 2 is unleashed upon on us on Monday (my birthday) on the old Dependable Versatile Discus and they've kindly provided us with this snippet from the extras! Dirty bird!
You'll find a link in my side wotist there to more work from Robert Popper and the guise of Robin Cooper.
