I did something not too bright. Now I have to decide between a lie and the truth.

Oooooh, criptic. ;-)

Bette said it best...

"I want, I want, I want, I want, I want, I want, I want....."

You know exactly what it is that I want.

PMS makes me a psycho

I've discovered that PMS does in fact make me totally neurotic, insecure, gives me bad dreams, makes me emotionally as stable as the Titanic.... and some!

So apologies go out to all those who have felt the back-lash of my freak-outs and mood swings this last week.

I forgot about this place...

until today. I've been having bad dreams. They include people from my past who I parted with on bad terms for one reason or another, mixed with people in my present and some of my fears.

I had one on Thursday night which was pretty disturbing. I don't know where it came from, but it's been on my mind ever since. Then last night I had one where I was drowning in a frozen lake, which was covered with some kind of pool cover, which I'd rolled onto and was being suffocated by as I sank. I was then attacked by a giant, metal poisonous spider.

I don't like it:-(

Woe is me, blah blah bloody blah

I'm hitting a wall with certain things. I just find it so hard to keep motivated, and to feel enthused and energetic, when my motivation, enthusiasm and energy are so focused elsewhere.

I think a combination of suddenly going from having company all the time, to being alone every day again, is a bit of a shock to the system. Ever since my mum broke up for summer, I've been hanging out with/ being nagged at by her, and though she irritated the tits off me for huge portions of time, it beat being bored and thinking, then over-thinking all the time. And dispite having huge chunks of time to be bored, I seem unable to prize my fat arse off the sofa to do anything particularly constructive. There's only one place I wanna be, and so I shall sulk whenever I'm not there!

Why oh why oh why?!

So the headache's gone. The ear throbbing almost stopped. The dripping nose almost dry. The swollen glands almost normal....and I develop the mother of all cold sores! WHAT HAVE I DONE FOR YOU TO PUNISH ME SO, WORLD????? Not only does it itch like a monther fucker, but it stings like a whore of a mother fucker:-(

Sympathy in writing please;-)

Lyra need YOU!

If you know anyone in the Nottingham/Newark area who plays bass well, has their own equipment, isn't a twat, can handle alcohol and has more than one t-shirt - please tell them to get in touch! (either with me directly or through www.myspace.com/lyrahq)

Same with keyboard players!

Mathematicians, goths, emo kids, metal fans, and time-wasters are not welcome.

Every day is a winding road.

Band practise on Wednesday was pretty depressing. I'm sure outside factors haven't been helpful this last few weeks, but I hope that's starting to be settled now. When anyone's got shit going off in their personal life, it's bound to have a ripple affect into other areas, but like I say, I think things are settling on that front, and there can be a more productive focus on the areas which have been lacking.

I really liked Clare's idea for Three Rivers. I can't quite hear it in the context of the whole piece yet, as we didn't get as far as working it in, but I like the chord changes, so it could well work....and I hear through the grapevine that Mr. Guitar God has new ideas for You'll Learn, which I'm really excited to hear because I LOVE that song. I know there have been issues with arrangement and stuff, but I LOVE the basic soul of that song. Hearing Martyn picking away at the verses and Clare's melody, it's just really beautiful and dark. I love music that you just feel, where the song seems to just play you, rather than you play it. I love Enough Enough, but I don't wanna spend each practise trying to come up with the next radio-friendly pop song. I wanna make music that moves my soul (is that too emo, Martyn?) and Martyn and Clare seem to consistently come up with the most fucking awesome ideas. I still sit back in awe at times, grateful that they invited me to be a part of this. I'm very excited about the future, recording and coming up with music that will set people on fire:-D
