I took the plunge

French Fancy has now become purply-pink - and I even managed to move my blog counter all on my own. At last my blog has moved into the new era as I think my old template was one of the very earliest designs. It takes so little to make me happy these days.

The thing is that I should really be cracking on with the first marked assignment from the OU for this new course. I've read all the relevant chapters about Mozart and Don Giovanni (how come nobody ever says anything about Da Ponte who wrote the libretto; it's always Mozart, Mozart,Mozart - but he only wrote the music - only! - like I ever could). I've done my introduction but, to be frank, this first essay seems more like a Music A-level theme - lots of analysis wanted about orchestrations, rhythm, melody. You'd think with my dad having been a professional musician and my having had piano lessons for about five years that I'd be thrilled to have a music question. Not a bit!

So that's why I'm wasting my time trying out different templates, fiddling with my blog, reading other people's, - I think it's called displacement or something.

Pretty in pink although I can barely read your blog title at the top.

It should be okay now because I was playing about with background images which I've now removed.

This is a blog in progress really. I'd like to get more things down the sidebar but they keep getting moved to the bottom.

Your blog looks great!

But let me just say, I'm excited to meet a fellow blogger who likes Richard Thompson--seen him five times AND the Dandy Warhols--saw them last month in Toronto.

Most people's tastes are so broad. And "developed"!!

Also, the Lives of Others is one of my favorite films. I also love Sam Sheppard (author of Paris, Texas).

And your pink!!

PEFL (if you don't mind an acronym) - we seem to have things in common. Excellent. We've both got extremely good taste.
