Day Thirty-Three - Anerley Road, SE19

Hang out the balloons - today's the day Make Me A Princess opened!

Because that's what we really need around here. A bridal accessories shop. Meanwhile the Post Office next door has been long closed down, the off-licence still hasn't been replaced and the travel agents just down the road has just done what appears to be a moonlight flit. Why can't anyone open a useful, profitable shop in this row?

On the discman today: AM - The Bonzo Dog Band The Doughnut in Granny's Greenhouse PM - Ride Smile

Well I can assure you that brialware shops make massive profits Al, but then its only so long before you will find that one out for yourself...;)

Its only so long now before Louise spots the shop though (don't think anyone could miss it) and before you know it the two of you will be spending your weekends in there skipping merrilly around the aisles of Princess outfits... how I'd love to be a fly on the wall :D

Nice choice on the Ride disc by the way, is that the original Smile EP or the compilation album of early stuff from a few years back? Either way its impressive to read of you listening to pretty good music.

(please note I refrained from adding "for once" at the end of that last line ;)

Oh, she's seen it...

It's the compilation of the first two EPs, "Ride" and "Play" which was originally put together for the US market in the early nineties. My ex got custody of the early Ride 12"s (fair enough as it was her who bought them), so I replaced them with this CD a few years ago.

You'll be less impressed with today's choices ;)
