Yes! No! Maybe!
YES: I'm back at home now, just until tomorrow morning, because I'm going to a gig in Cardiff with my Dad tonight. One of his favourite bands from the late 70s are on tour at the moment (must be tax problems or something), so we're going to see them. We've already been to see them once before, a few years ago, and I was thoroughly impressed, even though they weren't my type of music at the time. Since then, I've got into that genre of music (progressive / art - rock) a bit more, so I should enjoy it even more this time. The name of the band? Yes. Hence the title.
NO: I finished reading Fast Food Nation last night, and I've kind of decided to actively boycott a lot of big corporate names. Not just fast food chains, but also stores like Gap and Nike. I seem to have become an anti-corporate supporter, which suits me fine. I'm currently preparing and writing an anti-corporate rant in my head, when I get some time I'll type it up. But for now, go forth and spread the word against McDonalds. Incidentally, McDonalds owns Pret-A-Manger, so boycott that too.
MAYBE: I think I'm getting my new digital camera today. Me and my Dad are going to Cardiff a little earlier than necessary, so that we can pop into a Jessops store there and pick it up. An Olympus C-350 is the one I'm after, but we'll see. If I do get it, expect loads of random pictures of London over the next week whilst I play with it and figure out how it works...
