I went to see the Mekons play a "secret show" (yeah right!) at the Rainbo Club last night. First time I’d seen them live, it was great! Very very packed. Joe and Mike and Braden were there too, so we all hogged a corner of the bar to watch the show. Quite a spectacle! Saw my pal Chris Mills too, and lots of other folks… it was a sort of fun and embarrassing night for me, too, because I had told Jon Langford that I was trying to meet a guy to go out with, half as a joke and half seriously – Jon knows everybody in town, why NOT ask him? Couldn’t hurt, right? Well, it turned into a major joke of the evening. Let’s find Edith a new boyfriend. And then to make it even worse I went home half-drunk, got on the computer and sent one of the guys I met a really retarded flirty e-mail which I seriously doubt will be returned… ::argh!!:: Nothin’ like a day of self-induced public humiliation to cheer a gal right up! ;-) Next time I go out, I’m going to concentrate on the word "dignity."
