Rather Reptilian

Today at St albans market I spied this! (See pic below) And well…how could I resist getting it? Actually, there were TWO of them, and I dithered over which one to get (the other had more colourful facets to it – but I was worried it might clash with some clothing)

Of course, it instantly made me think of something…

G-Day!

Not as in the Aussie greeting, but as in “Gee Day”…the day for me to travel up to Glasgow once again. I set out in a few hours and arrive at Glasgow Central station at 5.01pm. First port of call will be the Jury’s Inn on Jamaica Street…then a quick call to the HMV in Argyle Street before it closes…familiarise myself with the place before next fortnight 🙂

After that…up to Renfield Street/Hope Street for food and culture. The Flying Duck for a vegan bite and the Theatre Royal for Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. Then…back to the hotel for a good rest and hopefully a peaceful night’s sleep.

What follows…I cannot say…

But what follows in this post is a LOVELY cleaned up copy of SM “performing” (miming) SSIS on Belgian TV. I had previously only seen the very crappiest of copies of this (and not a full version of it, either). Now, Jim is there in full awkward glory! He don’t half look self-conscious! Lol.

Getting Simple Minds to mime is an OUTRAGE! Oh, but the visuals are GLORIOUS! Mr. Kerr, you are far too beautiful…even in your self-conscious, awkward gloriousness! I adore you ❤️
