Breakfast on the Morning Tram

Just treat yourself to a cinnamon pancake
Very soon you’ll forget your heartache

Goodness…who can resist lyrics like that????
My love for her increases.

I love listening to her voice. It reminds me of the journey up north into the Scottish Highlands…I don’t really know why. It’s snowy- and steamy and smoky. Or really, just a voice you’d want to listen to when it’s storming out and you’re warm and curled up on a beaten up club chair with a mug of your favourite coffee or tea and a good book just waiting to be savoured. So perfect.

So romantic

You always had a taste for those movies
Like Casablanca and Song O’ My Heart
Where a complicated world or the call of adventure
Forces true lovers to part
When the hero turns his back so stoically
On all the happiness they might have had

You always considered it so romantic
But I just considered it sad

It was so like you to choose such a moment
The sun setting over the square
A pavement cafe, the local children at play
The sound of an accordion somewhere
You suddenly said Fate was pulling us apart
Then you shrugged, like there was nothing more to add
I suppose you considered that so romantic
Well, I just considered it sad

Perhaps you’re living in America now
Perhaps you’re in Timbuktu
A small part of me, even after this time
Has never stopped waiting for you
To live in this state of hoping
When hoping seems to utterly mad
I can’t help but consider that so romantic
Though I know I should consider it sad

– Kazuo Ishiguro for Stacey Kent, Breakfast on the Morning Tram

thoughts

am i weird that i
like lipstick stains
on coffee mugs?

the world doesn’t just
cease (and desist)
’cause you’re angry at it

the good goes on
ephemeral as always
the bad and the ugly

steadfast as ever

Sunday

It may be the day before exams but it certainly doesn’t feel like it…it was a pretty perfect leisurely sunday really.

– Eggs Florentine at Choupinette
– Green tea and highlighters at Starbucks
– EL lippie in a ribbed gold case (does that mean I’m all grown up now? does it does it?)
– Music sampling at That CD Shop*
– Miu Miu-ing
– Stranded at the bus stop in the rain
– Plastic-bag headed children shrieking and puddle-splashing all the way home

* I bought Mar 3 CDs for her birthday and sampled like about 15 hahaa…I think the SA was pretty disgruntled with me. But oh well I’m so glad I found them-

Madeleine Peyroux- Half the Perfect World
Silje Nergaard- At First Light
Stacey Kent- Breakfast on the Morning Tram

The last was especially intriging- Kazuo Ishiguro wrote the lyrics to four of the songs in it! Apparently, he’s a longtime fan of hers and wanted to co-produce an album with her so tadah! I was so enamoured by the Ishiguro link that I just listened to one song and decided it was too perfect.

Enchanteded

Tim and I watched Enchanted today!!!!!!!!! It’s so funny I nearly died laughing and McDreamy was hot of course (duh).
Anyway the funniest part was what they used in place of a Fairy Godmother, “Better than that!!!” I believe was the phrase. *grin* hehehehe go and watch!

I’ve been dreaming of a true love’s kiss
And a prince I’m hoping comes with this
That’s what brings everaftering so happy
And that’s the reason we need lips so much
Four lips are the only things that touch
So to spend a life of endless bliss
Just find who you love through true love’s kiss

Giselle: aaaaa aaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaa
Animals: aaaaa aaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaa

Animals: Shes been dreaming of a true love’s kiss
And a prince she’s hoping comes with this
That’s what brings everaftering so happy
And that’s the reason we need lips so much
Four lips are the only things that touch

Giselle: So to spend a life of endless bliss
Just find who you love through true love’s kiss

Edward: You’re the fairest maid I’ve ever met
You were made…
Giselle: …to finish your duet
Giselle and Edward: And in years to come we’ll reminisce
Edward: How we came to love
Giselle: And grow and grow love
Everyone: Since first we knew love through true love’s kiss
