Last night I took my friend Sarah out for dinner and to the Brooke Fraser concert as a twenty-first birthday present. You may remember Brooke Fraser from two blog posts ago, in which I gave her four stars for her latest album. I think, having seen her live, I could safely take it up to four and a half stars, just because: she is so cool!! One example of why - Brooke has a passion for punctuation. It's not often someone introduces a song saying, "I love punctuation. And I particularly love this song because I got to use punctuation in the title - 'Love comma where is your fire question mark'." She also has the most amazing voice; it was just as faultless and rich live as it is on the CD. The music and the lights and the stage set and everything were perfectly done. All in all it was a fantastic concert; we left it on such a high, and my friend told me it was the best birthday present ever, so that was nice!
Sadly enough, I had bought some cool new clothes to wear to it, but realised, when I put them on, that it is still not cold enough to wear merino wool. Isn't that sad? Not on a par with human poverty and natural disasters, obviously, but in a mildly disgruntling way. (Is disgruntling a word?)
And today... I have to start working on some essays. Groooaaaan.
