Farscape - Stark - hidden talents

I am teH witty

Conversation this morning, regarding Marie's quite disgraceful drunken behaviour at the meal yesterday lunchtime, and the fact that she was supposed to be in a meeting that afternoon...

Gaynor M: Well... she is quite bubbly.
Me: Yeah, but there's a difference between 'bubbly' and 'been at the bubbly'...

;)

Other than that, uneventful day so far today.

Things I MUST MUST MUST REMEMBER to take to work with me tomorrow:

  • Choir outfit;
  • Messiah music;
  • Music folder


Rehearsal is at 5.00, so I also cannot be delayed at work, either.

Given that the next Messiah is on Tuesday, I have requested flex leave for Wednesday 12th December, mainly because the concert doesn't end until 10.15 or thereabouts, and I will be knackered. So, if I get that day off, it will be my shopping day. Having a shopping day worked out quite well last year, and I'm setting myself (hopefully) a strict spending limit because I R skint. Cheap books from The Works all around, I think.

That's assuming I get it, anyway. There's supposed to be a meeting with Graham (personnel chap) about the block appeal for the WPO post that day, so I'm hoping I'm not obligated to attend. Nobody else is off that day so there's no problem there. I've started to dread trying to get time off, which is a bit of a shame...

Paul rightly pointed out last night that the bank probably only wanted to hassle me about upgrading to a 'Silver' account, as they sent with the letter the other day. If it's that desperate, I'm sure they'll ring me back, but it doesn't make the situation any less annoying re: opening hours.

City of Birmingham Choir MP3

I have no idea if this will work, but anyway. I've temporarily created a FileFreak account to host this rather than eat up my own bandwidth, which will be deleted in 45 days if I leave it inactive (which I more than likely will), so - random MP3 (or rather, WMA) of the City of Birmingham Choir.

Christus Factus Est.wma

This was our first piece from the Tewkesbury Abbey concert in June. It's a bit quiet (recorded live, obviously, in a very echo-y building) so you may need to turn the volume up.

If you like what you hear, I will gladly make you a copy of the CD. The Hymn to St Cecilia sounds bloody amazing, but Christus Factus Est sounded pretty cool too.

If that doesn't work, there is a 'podcast' on the choir's website of the same song...
