back from indietracks

Indietracks was fab. super-dooper. I'm smiling just thinking about it. I sold lots and lots of brooches to lots and lots of lovely people. Everyone there was so so nice. I think it managed to be my FAVOURITE ever indietracks. Toot toot! I don't even mind that I missed a few bands I'd really wanted to see, playing shop was fun.

It was definitely my drunkest indietracks though. I sure managed to get through a lot of cider. It was too lovely and fun for me to be embarrassed about manically dancing and talking absolute rubbish to new people. I had a moment of rosy-cheeked shame when on the second day I was manning (or woman-ing) my stall and saw a couple of smittens and suddenly remembered talking to them the previous night extremely drunk. I remember going on and on about how big America is, and I think I kept forgetting if they were from Canada or America and asking over and over. God. I am a silly little thing when I'm drunky. But in summary, it was great! Oh god, I should also apologise to any of the several Swedish people I insisted on talking to (or rather talking at) about how I've been to Stockholm. Amy, they don't CARE. I met so many nice people, what a wonderful indiepop world it is. Even the rain didn't dampen my spirits too much. Dancing til dawn has taken it out of me, I've eaten a whole pack of rich tea's since getting back and at some point I have to face that it's time to sew some more brooches before Saturday. I'm tired.

Toot toot! It's that time of year again; when a bunch of lovely indiepop fans party like no-one's watching among the steam trains of Derbyshire. I've been hidiously last minute about the whole thing and only just found out that I got the time off work, but somehow it's all coming together. Badges are sewn. Tent-pitch is booked. Train-times have been glanced at. I haven't even sorted out what to WEAR yet, or bought any little tubes of toothpaste and shampoo, or made TENT SNACKS. Jeez louise. What a crazy adventurer I am. I have been watching bear grylls though so I'm prepared for most eventualities.

I seem to have completely lost touch with the music world mostly because of silly technology...this laptop doesn't have my itunes on and is so old n slow that I can't stream music on it. So lots of the bands at indietracks will be a big fun suprise for me. Yay! I've just scrolled through the band listing on the website, wow wow I'm so excited! So much cuteness!

p.s. but I'm going by MYSELF. scaredy scaredy scared.
