Diary of Lisa Taylor, reluctantly 42 (and a half)

Or.. 'f.ck me I'm forty.. two.. and a half', though can look 38 on a - not so deluded - good day. Or 'How to reconcile a well experienced mind trapped in a still - but for how long? – youthful body.' Don't have the 30somethings angst/problems, neither have the resigned (?) ageing baby-boomers in safe family territory outlook yet. Here's how I cope, one day all sexy women will get old... but never invisible. © Lisa Taylor 2005/6/7/8/9. Jeez.. so much for the 42 and-a-half delusion

2nd May - Iggy & No fun

There was a time when after an Iggy gig, I'd have gone on elsewhere to have fun. But 5 years is a long time in the world of monogamous relationships and so it is that I bade P&S goodbye outside the gig after they insisted only briefly that I go with them on to the fabulous West End. Only briefly because they knew the answer would be 'No'. It's ok to go to a gig with your ex lover but not ok to not return till early hours or not at all. Shame really.

Iggy did not disappoint but this time we were not down the front, mid way I'd say. Trying to hold still to our square of floor when caught in the enthusiastic pogoing of a couple of 15 year olds who seemed to recognise I wanna be your dog. Bless. Felt very jealous as that is the age of course that you form deep bonds with your friends over your love of an artist vs another. Iggy could be their grandad and there they were, one in his herrington jacket, the other one more kurt cobain lookalike.

Earlier we'd bought my ticket off a kind late 20's bloke who sold it face value as his mother (70) could not make it! He lives in Herts, has taught English in Nepal but the most bizarre bit of info concerned his sister who's my age he said and who works as a dominatrix in the burbs. How funny is that? He was kind of impressed we knew other musos there (spotted in muso audience were Jarvis Cocker, Bobby Gillespie, Don Letts, Rat Scabies) but didn't know who Jim Jarmush was. P's daugther who's short of 3 years old but already watches and likes Charlie Chaplin movies, will probably start to dig Jarmush movies in a couple of years. We move in orbiting little universes where we all know what we know, like what we like.

Turns out P&S had a reasonable but not exceptional time in WE after the show as well, it was a Sunday night after all.

There are a dozen posts I have not finished with and missing from late April. They will appear eventually.
