No Alanis Morissette for me tonight

And here I am, observing the birds in my back yard, chasing each other around to get the best bite of peanuts, sunflower seeds and peanut butter.

Gloriously relaxed, watching Monk, while sipping tea.

Not at work slaving away, but home. Sweet home.

On top of that, tonight is the Guardian Angel Tour 2012 of Alanis Morissette in Tilburg. A concert I’ve been looking forward to for months! A concert that is sold out! The only concert she gives here in Holland! A concert I have two tickets to! 😀

I am one lucky woman.

Except…

I also have a coldflu, whatever, wich makes my head and throat hurt. My muscles ache. My stamina back to zero and my eyes water. Stupid germs, bacteria and viruses that are torturing my body so I can’t hear Alanis sing live in front of me tonight… I am pissed off and raving mad most disappointed. But above all, I’m sad.

A lady friend will accompany my partner to Tilburg in my place. Please enjoy triple for me? *hugs*

So here I am, observing the birds in my back yard, chasing each other around to get the best bite of peanuts, sunflower seeds and peanut butter.

Bummer!

PS. Here’s a photo my friend sent me during the concert. She also called me three times to let me hear the music. I only heard a lot of noise and applause, but was touched by her gesture.

Alanis Morissette: Guardian

Finally a new album by Alanis Morrisette!

Watch and listen to Guardian:

You, you who has smiled when you’re in pain
You who has soldiered through the profane
They were distracted and shut down

So why, why would you talk to me at all
such words were dishonorable and in vain
their promise as solid as a fog

and where was your watchman then

I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

you, you in the chaos feigning sane
You who has pushed beyond what’s humane
Them as the ghostly tumbleweed

And where was your watchman then

I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

now no more smiling mid-crestfall
No more managing unmanageables
No more holding still in the hailstorm

Now enter your watchwoman

I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian


This album is definitely on my wishlist! 😀 Such a gorgeous and talented lady.

Update: Alanis is coming to the Netherlands on November 21st. And I just bought tickets, jihaaa!
