Conversations with my sister:  
On returning her car:
Me: I've had to leave a CD in your player because I forgot the case and I don't want to carry it home without it in case it gets scratched.
Her: That's okay, I don't tend listen to CDs in the car anymore. Besides I don't like your music anyway - it's all depressing.
Me: Huh? (in the knowledge that yes, some of the stuff I listen to can be a little maudlin (Radiohead anyone?) but in general... no)
Her: It is.
Me: whatever. I'll pick it up next time I'm around okay?

Two days later on the phone:
Me: Hang on, let me turn the volume down (has WMP on random on my computer at the time)
Her: What is that you're listening to anyway?
Me: Right now it's The Fratellis
Her: Oh, [BiL] likes them. I'm surprised you do.
Me: Why?
Her: 'Cause they're kinda upbeat really.
Me: And your point is?
Her: Oh nothing...
Me: (*cringes as Paranoid Android is the next song that comes on*)

Yesterday as she gives me a lift home from nephew's birthday:
Me: Oh crap! Sorry, I forgot to bring the case for that CD.
Her: It's okay... (starts engine, CD starts up loudly) I kinda like it anyway.
Me: Not too depressing for you then?
Her: Actually... no it's really quite good.
Me: Told ya.

The CD in question is Groovin' On The Inside.

*grins*

In other news, my legs hurt. Walking from platform 11A every single morning is on the verge of killing me, and that's before the monstrosity that is Great George Street.

Hahahh YAY for Steve!!!

I went to Six Flags with my sister last month and I was listening to 'Middle American Saturday Night' on my iPod and she was listening along and asked 'who is this?' I told her it was Kane (and rambled on about Chris & Steve, coz if I get the chance I will..lol) anyways, she said 'can you send this song to me?'

We're so gonna get our sisters to love Steve! (and Chris!)

Yay!

It's great getting to convert people like this! She even said to me "So this is the guy you went down to London twice to see?" and actually seemed impressed that I'd done it (instead of belittling me for doing it the way she usually does... families!)

I'm really hoping all this walking will pay off, I'm trying to be healthier but normally when I do that it tapers off after a week. Now, because I have no choice but to keep walking, I'm hoping it'll stick long enough to make a difference!

Let's hope this pain brings some gain...

Hum...

I mean loss. :D

Huh! Your sis.

What can I say? if it were me( and I do this to some of my brothers) I just say "yeah, yeah" and turn my ears off.

Just think of how much good the walk is doing ( no?) and did you get my mail about BOTB?
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: chris kane - faded_iconswhiskyinmind on August 30th, 2007 10:43 am (UTC)
Yeah... she's the one who listens to Carole King non-stop and then tells me that *my* taste in music is depressing? *sighs*

Yup, the U2 song was the Serenifly idea I had and yup, got the email - sorry I didn't reply yesterday, half day threw me off my routine a little. Replied today!
thedothatgirlthedothatgirl on August 30th, 2007 11:02 am (UTC)
Thanks dear - I've mailed you

*grins*

and replied. Twice. Because I fail at actually finishing a thought these days...

Heee !

I just fell off my chair - Sean Harry just sent me two sets of Con DVD's owing since god knows when.

Still haven't got the Fusion ones though :(

Oh. My. God!!

Has he been replaced by a mandroid do you think?

(Did I tell you I kept seeing him at the Steve gigs? It was slightly amusing really...)
thedothatgirlthedothatgirl on August 30th, 2007 01:21 pm (UTC)
Ooh err that's rather disconcerting to say the least - I suppose though he has done a lot to get the band 'heard' in the UK so you know props and all that.

Just be thankful he isn't in charge of mailing cds and stuff otherwise we'd all give up.

Funny thing was though, Steve was more or less blanking him for the most part. I guess it's since he was there on his own rather than with Chris, and SH hadn't had anything to do with the organising of this one. Although he was still there when they locked us out of the Half Moon in Putney so he wasn't being shunned or anything.

Still, good to know that Steve doesn't think he's the be-all and end-all of UK promo now.

She wrote her list as well. It's in a sealed envelope on my kitchen noticeboard. She clearly has me in a box and it really is great to surprise her with things like this.

11A... I'd almost be as well getting off the train in Paisley and walking from there to be honest! (Or at least that's how it's felt so far this week) Luckily it's only coming in that stops there, going back has been from a platform that I don't have to hire Sherpas to get me to...

I'm not sure if I am or not. Pretty much everything I would say in it I've already hashed out in therapy so it seems a little redundant for me to put in black and white. But on the other hand, maybe it would be good...

I'm just not sure really.

Nice to see therapy's helped out with the indecisiveness thing...

That sounds like an excellent plan!

Awesome. Canal St should be covered by my zonecard I think, but either/or's good with me!
smhwpf on August 30th, 2007 10:55 am (UTC)
Hah! Gosh, your sister actually admitting you have good taste in something? Remarkable! But yay.

Good you're doing the regular walking thing albeit from necessity - if that much walking is causing that much grief then you really, really need to be doing it. And keeping it up when you're re-carred. You will certainly see the benefit of it.
the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone: annie hall//forgot my mantra - mewhiskyinmind on August 30th, 2007 11:09 am (UTC)
Hee! The thing is, if she gave most of my music collection a chance she would probably like a lot of it, going on what I know of her taste so... But yeah, it's as if she sees me mentioning it and it goes down in her valuation sometimes.

I'm actually shocked at how unfit I've become over the last year or so - part of it is probably down to no longer walking a dog as well. All of the reasons I had to walk are mostly out the window and when I had the car I only tended to walk into the village. Everywhere else I drove, even if it was less than a couple of miles.

I just hope she actually returns your CD.

She will, or actually, I'll take it back. She can have a copy if she wants it but the original's signed (the insert, not the CD itself) so I will definitely be getting it back.
