Take me out, tonight…

Take me out, tonight…

“Take me out, tonight, take me anywhere, I don’t care, I don’t care”… as sung by a favourite band – The Smiths.

I really want to go out. I want to pretty up my face, do my hair, put on a nice outfit, get picked up and taken out so I can go dancing.

I want to look beautiful and have butterflies in my tummy, anticipating the excitement of the night out.

I want to have a glass or two (or three) of yummy wine, chat and laugh. Listen to good music and dance, dance, dance.

I want to stand on the dance floor, hear a favourite song, and dance with someone. The type of dancing where you’re grinning at each other because you’re enjoying the song and the company and the moment.

I want to spend hours on the dance floor, just the music and the bodies dancing to it. The heat and the lights. The smoke and then the perfume.

I want to laugh, do a silly dance, bump into someone I know, wink at the DJ, and get lost in a moment.

I want to dance until my feet hurt and all I can think of is crashing in my soft cool bed.

I want to snuggle up in bed with sore feet, music in my head, and a grin on my face while I drift off to sleep.

Then tomorrow night…

I want to do it all again. 😉

If You Ever Come Back

If You Ever Come Back

Dear Danny, Mark and Glen (the band members of The Script),

All hail the Dublin dudes, The Script!

You are touring here in South Africa in the latter part of June 2011, in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Just so you know, I am gutted. 😦 Think along the lines of your song “Exit Wounds”. Yip, it’s *that* bad.

I live in Durban and am in no financial position to travel to Joburg or Cape Town to see you perform live. (I’m the woMan Who Can’t be Moved). Oh wow and wow again… the thought of seeing you live gives me goose bumps every time.

I am so in love with your music, your poetic lyrics and Danny’s voice, so charged with emotion, when he sings… you are a band like no other.

I know the evenings of the concert I’m going to tear up (“We Cry”) that I can’t be there to see you, but perhaps, like your song “If You Ever Come Back”, I’ll be able to see you then.

I hope your tour of our beautiful country, South Africa, leaves you happy and wanting more.

A fantabulous fan, Karin. xxx
