What I learned from this experience is that trying to describe music with words is still a futile exercise and that whole "dancing about architecture" thing is as accurate an observation as you're ever likely to come across.

One term I hated above all that reared it's ugly head in the early ninties was math rock :shock:

I just wanted to rip up the magazine there and then for using such stupid labels.

Today I started a lactose free diet as advised by the dietician to try and figure out why I was so ill at the end of last year.

Been using lactofree milk for a few years now, done wonders for my issues, was always feeling bloating, sickly and burping a fair lot!! Certainly did the trick with that lot, my next issue is processed pastry and potatoes giving me horrible heartburn!

I've picked up milk and spread but have yet to use the milk. The spread I have no bother with as whichever butter/margarine I used was fine by me. I'm so used to drinking semi-skimmed milk though so have to admit I'm a little bit sceptical on the milk. Saying that I did buy a semi-skimmed version so could be OK.

On day three now so will just have to keep going.

Today I got told by my new manager that I following her assessments of all the people who work at our company that I'm grossly undervalued and underappreciated and as such I'm getting a pay rise.

Today my dog died. :(

Still, he had a good run. 16 is apparently pretty old for a jack russell.

Bit old for me. Today I'm dealing with insurance companies after someone tried to avoid traffic by cutting through a hatched off area and ended up smashing into my car. Looks like it''s a write off.

When I was at school we went on a trip to see a water wheel and a cobbler, how times have changed!
