Spending an evening in a tiny room full of cigarette smoke might not have been the best idea given how I've been feeling lately, but oh, I'm tired of the being ill. I've had stomach pains for a couple of weeks now and while the doctor was sympathetic and has given me tablets that are supposed to fix the symptoms, he doesn't really know what's wrong, apart from possibly gallbladder problems, which they've taken blood tests for. The pains aren't as bad but I still feel like I have trapped wind most of the time, and today I have mostly been feeling queasy and a bit dizzy, and achey. The worst thing is I'm so hungry all the time, but I doubt if the eating will help the stomach, so I'm trying to be sensible. Having said that, I ate a Green & Black's chocolate bar quite accidentally the other day, while I was thinking about something else. I'm turning into somebody I didn't think I was. theladiesloos would probably tell me I'm pregnant, but, really, no! They tell everybody that, anyway. Even the men. Oh, wait.
Paul Brady's "The Road to the Promised Land" came up on my party shuffle (that's the closest I get to dancing, ho ho) a while ago, and I suddenly had a nerdy boyish urge to compile a list of top ten songs with piano introductions. I'm not even sure if that one would be on it, really, but Bruce Hornsby's "The Way it Is" would be right up there, and Joni Mitchell's "Blue", and Radiohead's "Everything in its Right Place", and Tori Amos's "Winter", though all of hers are piano songs really. Okay, it's not Top Ten, really, more top-of-the-head. ... The Piano Man reminds me of Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Unconsoled", which I never finished, though I didn't get the impression it was really going to have an ending anyway. Maybe the real life story will have more of an ending, but they don't tend to, do they?
