An Adventure

Nine weeks ago, in sleepy Solihull, a small 18-month old dog got horny. As a result, last Saturday a lady friend of his gave birth to four puppies. Because of this, single-mother-dog’s owner could no longer get to London this Saturday, which meant she had some concert tickets she didn’t need, which she very kindly gave to me, and so…

Lil and I are going to Live8! Holy. Pants.

The actual concert too, not just the big screens. I’m excited! I wanted to go to the march in Edinburgh, but I figured that a 1.5hr drive down to London is far preferable to 12 hours in a coach in one day. Also, given the lineup at the concert, it’s rather a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! I have a hell of a lot to sort out before then, though, top of the list being an arrangement for the dogs. I’m also going to a “Summer Ball” on Sunday evening where I’ll probably have to dress smartly and try not to be too exhasted.

I was looking down the list of artists due to perform, and it’s quite something. Annie Lennox, Coldplay, Dido, Elton John, Keane, Madonna, Paul McCartney, REM, Robbie Williams, Scissor Sisters, Stereophonics, Snow Patrol, Sting, Travis, U2…Blimey. Apparently it’s the first time in ~ 35years that Hyde Park will be entirely closed to the general public.

I’ll be photoblogging and maybe podcasting from the concert, of course 🙂 It should be quite a day!
