What do women find so great about shopping??
It's an entirely overrated pastime, in fact it's a waste of time, energy, etc.. But, it's done now, and hopefully that is the last time I have to suffer clothes shopping for a very long time.
I absolutely hate having to try clothes on in these weird little cubicles, the best description I've read of what can go wrong in these situations was recently posted on Magnie's blog, "Cats, Clouds, & Flatpacks" . Well I was lucky in having non of his misfortune, and Peerie Trowie said that I looked slim in the suit I bought. This statement has to be qualified by the statement that all fat folk look slim in black.
Maybe the fact that the waistline is 11 inches smaller than the last suit I bought gives some weight to her observation though.
We ended up with reasonable weather for the trip to town, by that I mean it wasn't pissing rain. We took the Hurtigbåt (fast boat), which is the 'water taxi' between Vestnes and Molde. It takes less than 20 minutes to cross the 11km and, although it's more expensive than the ferry, the terminal is just 50 metres from our door.
Here's a picture of the boat.
Molde just didn't look nice today, all grey and dull.
It's called the "Vestnes Musikkverksted", which translates as 'Music Workshop'. I was careful to get the spelling right so that google search engines can find the following statement.
"IT'S ABSOLUTE CRAP", "A TOTAL EMBARRASSMENT TO MUSIC".
I love all music, from opera to punk, but the sound engineer on this event should have his gonads introduced to a rusty knife at the earliest possible opportunity.
yun's aa fir enoo,
where did I put my ear defenders......
