Covert Blogging

This post, hastily written, is brought to you by the feeling of being slightly displaced (but in a good way), and also of the feeling of being the fat and ugly one (not so much in a good way).

I am still allowed to come to the office Christmas party.

Next week I am going to go and have a look at the taxidermist shop on the Essex Road. Not with a view to making a purchase, although there is a life-size lion that I think would brighten up any hallway.

Also I am going to 'do lunch' with people.

Also I will wake up after it gets light.

Also wear fancy shoes.

(I could wear fancy shoes at work, but I am going to walk around London in fancy shoes. During the day. Because I can. Who goes to shops full of dead animals wearing party shoes? Me.)

I have so many songs to write, to finish and to record.

There are three and a half days left.

Will you blog whilst wearing fancy shoes?

We will need updates on the shoe-wearing-London-wandering-taxidermist-visiting-days.

How is not quite Miss Universe? She must be there by now.

hi leonie,
sorry to bother you but i can't quite seem to get hold of your housemate bec! i think i might have the wrong number for her after it was stolen earlier in the summer. please can you let her know that claire L from school is trying to get hold of her as i don't have her email and there's no blogging that's been done since the summer :(
thank you - things sound fantastic, i wish you all the best with your new fabulous singing career, if you'll be playing in reading please put it on your blog as it would be great to see you live!
good luck :)

That taxidermy place is well worth a visit; one day I hope to have enough money to buy the giraffe.

Léonie, email me - via the address on my blog - would ya? I have need to contact you sometime in the near future, and the IT Nazis at work don't allow me to use MySpace...

I think you should write about the taxidermy fancy shoes.. just a thought.

You could always take the lion along with you to the Christmas bash?

I think you should write a song about wearing fancy shoes around london... there aren't enough songs about shoes.

Kinky Boots, Honor Blackman
These boots are made for walkin', Nancy Sinatra.
Old Brown Shoe, the Beatles...

And that's all I can think of at the moment.

Curly: There is of course -

Blue Suede Shoes - Carl Perkins (and covered by numerous others)

&

Hole In My Shoe - smashes for both Traffic and Neil from The Young Ones.

Aside from that though... For something so important to so many people I think you've definitely identified an uncatered for niche.

I have tried on numerous occasions to forget Jimmy Nail to no avail.

Now I am singing Crocodile Shoes and it will not go out of my head.

Loving "Sandal in the wind". Genius.

However, as it is now Thursday afternoon I am wondering when we can expect pictures of your super-hot replacement?

Is she going to start a blog called sometimesmylooksareallihave.com?

Boots of Spanish Leather by Bob Dylan.
Dangerous Shoes by Linoleum.

And I didn't even cheat, unlike some.

Ooh, actually, just remembered another couple. Am too embarrassed to tell the internet what they are though.

Crazy For Shoes - Madonna.. a classic.
