You find that all her words of kindness linger on,
When she no longer needs you.
She wakes up, she makes up,
She takes her time and doesn’t feel she has to hurry,
She no longer needs you.
And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years."
Et cetera. I managed to sing a horrid version of ABC's "Poison Arrow," a similarly mutilated "People Will Say We're in Love" (freaking intro!), a passable "Dear Prudence," and a pleasing "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover." I did not manage to sing "Sukiyaki" or "88 Lines about 44 Women" or "When You're Good to Mama," but since I got to dance with djm while julietk was singing "It's A Sin" (and I had buttered popcorn), all my failures will ultimately be forgotten "like tears in rain" and replaced with memories of fun, like watching shadowdaddy do back up guitar (with the Guitar Hero axe) for jhg's "Won't Get Fooled Again." (And do people really not know "As" was originally by Stevie Wonder?)
Got pissed off in a Chinese food restaurant (David Wong's Chinese Restaurant) near the Tooting Broadway tube station when they came back and told us our order wasn't hitting their per person minimum and we needed to get appetizers to flesh the order out. I was furious and walked out, and then they stuck shadowdaddy and wechsler with the food I'd ordered before they said we needed to ordered more and I decided to leave rather than pay for food I wasn't hungry enough to eat. Fuckers. Like it isn't criminal enough that they're charging $4 for a plate of plain rice.
The three of us went earlier to see Yobi, the Five Tailed Fox at the Barbican as part of the Korean Film Festival (animated movie day). It had a lot of sloppiness to the translation and occasionally weak animation (mostly bad proportions), but it was cute and the story was very interesting and at the very end it did something I really wanted to see happen, which was that it totally slipped off of the Western story telling plane and did some freaky assed stuff that had jack to do with my culture and had absolutely no explanation at all and was totally cool. Killer bunny spirits feeding soul-birds in their little cages, that rocked.
Oh yeah, and I missed my sister tonight, because I wanted to hear her singing some Stevie Wonder. I really need to give her a call.
