Too many sad words make for sad sad songs

Part of the problem with being unemployed, or at least partially employed, is all that awful free time you have to fill. You kind of get used to not having a second when you’re working – not that you enjoy not having a second, you just get used to it.

So recently I’ve had all this spare time to fill, I’ve been obliged to hold conversations, spend time with people, read, pray, think, even do some gardening – though I know that’s probably a step too far…

Following the Turf marathon (in fact imagine an actual Turf marathon, sponsored by Flora and all… not to self…) on Saturday I sat down all day Monday and recorded one of my own songs, one of the ones I’d battered out on the dodgy karaoke mic on the Mac Mini in NZ. The hiss and squeal on the recording was just winding me up too much, and that was just my voice.

In doing so, I think I’ve found the perfect way to procrastinate and whittle away a perfectly useful day. Possibly even better than Halo 3 or Harry Potter.
