A Weekend in 'LA'

Deck-chairs on Littlehampton Beach

This last weekend me, Ellen, Nash, Hannah and Charis joined Jon on a visit south to Littlehampton where we spent two days with his girlfriend Katie and her mates, at a house she was looking after.

I have to say this has probably been one of the best ‘weekenders’ I’ve enjoyed in a long while. I drove down with Nash and Ellen (who in full control of the CD player gave us a great mix of tunes), arriving in LA to enjoy the tail-end of a house party (and some wrestling!)

We spent Saturday morning on and around Littlehampton beach, before heading over to Brighton in the evening for some comedy (narrowly missing much of Gay Pride that was happening in the city that day also). On Sunday we met Katie’s parents, and enjoyed a fine BBQ, before sadly having to head back home.

It occurred to me during this trip, that I was in the area exactly three years ago. This got me thinking (as I lay on the beach that Saturday) about how much has changed in that time… but lets avoid the nostalgia for now… that’s for another day.

Anyhow, a big thanks to Katie, her parents and everyone who I spent this weekend with, it has seriously been one to remember. Boop!

It sounded great! but it has also made me jealous, it would be criminal not to have such a good weekend with us lot before you disappear to the states. I know we talk about it but when are actually gonna do something about it? Is it our fault for not listening or is it you for not pushing it? Do we all need a rallying call? Come on lets fly some ideas up the flag pole and see who's in!!! Kris, Jon M, Jon R, Mark.......anyone else.

I myself have been experiencing all sorts of synchronicity... transition... being somewhere I've been before but feeling like a completely different person. It must be the stars or something.

Regardless, it sounds like it was fun and relaxing. I could use a weekend like that! :)

p.s. Placebo has a new CD, silly. But I do think in a way their old sound has gone the ways of 'pop past' as you put it.
