So my holiday has started and I'm finding it hard to relax.
It's like the last 7 weeks of work have built up and up and I'm still on the crest of the wave. My minds racing. So whereas normally I sleep like a baby because I'm so tired, last night I couldn't sleep. :/
And I woke up early and still feel like I've got a load of energy.
I'm helping out with an alternative Halloween event at my church this afternoon where there will be about 50 infant kids, and I'm doing street pastoring tonight, so I guess I'll need the energy. Then hopefully I can chill.
Tomartelo con calma! Con calma.
And breathe...

Sid and Nancy

I've been watching a documentary on Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen over the past few nights. Fascinating. She was killed (39 years ago tomorrow coincidentally) and Sid may have killed her but no-one really knows, including him, because he was so high on drugs at the time. He then died from a heroine overdose himself about 4 months later.

This is his version of 'My Way' on YouTube:

It reminds me of when I was in a band in my teens. The Sex Pistols were a textbook influence.
The end of the YouTube video is quite disturbing though in the light of the violence we've had at a number of gigs recently.

Sunday roast

Today was a very traditional western world Christian Sunday for me.;)
We went to church.
The pastor was preaching on one of the Psalms (which amounts to analysing song lyrics by King David, which I always like).
Then we had a couple from church round for Sunday dinner - roast lamb, roast potatoes and roast veg - doesn't get much more traditional than that.
Kind of killed in the evening watching trash tv (X-Factor), but I enjoyed the day.
The church organized the dinners so you had random people coming to your house and you didn't know who it was going to be until they turned up. The couple we had are quite old and we wouldn't normally have asked them but it made a nice change.
Have a good week everyone.
