Twas the night before Cambridge...

I'm not sure how I get to be more excited. I laid in bed last night, with a pad and pen, writing by the light of my mobile, making a list of everything I will need for the festival. At the top of the list is the word 'tickets'. Because I forgot one year.
I clambered into the car with Kim and she reeled off a list of things...
-Do you have your pyjamas?
-Do you have clean pants?
-Do you have your toothbrush?
-Do you have the tickets?
-Shit! (Followed by a fast exit from the car and a sprint back to the house.

Shortly I am going to have my massage, skin analysis (I hope she doesn't mention the multiplying wrinkles) and french polish. I'm putting a tent up tomorrow. Having my nails done was plainly the most brilliant idea I've ever had.

Tomorrow I will also be partaking of nachos grande. It's a tradition. I'm irrationally excited by the fact a plate full of nachos will be mine, less excited that my pocket will be £10 lighter. I'm really unexcited by the fact that I could be 'enjoying' my nachos grande in the rain.
I really must stop checking metcheck every two minutes... but the forecast for the rest of the week bodes well.

I'm currently sporting a fetching shade of pillarbox red on the old follicles and I'm loving it... although the splotchy effect around the roots - not too attractive. Ah but it's worth it. The lady in the post office just minutes ago assured me she wasn't wearing her sunglasses to tone down the brightness of my hair, I'm not so sure...

I really should have read these the chronologically, but I should have started at the beginning.

You were so excited, and with the knowledge of you not having a good time. I feel like going up there and demanding your money back.

When you get so excited, and to be so let down, now thats never something you do to a beautiful woman.

That made me really smile!
Thank you so very much!
I do love Cambridge with all my heart, but this year changed my mind, and I will be looking at alternative festivals this year.

The Big Green Gathering, Solfest, Beautiful Days, Towersey, Big Session, all on the list of possibles. I just know that I can't go without!
