The problem with weekends

The only problem, and I use the term loosely, with weekends is that I tend to completely throw my body clock out during them. As I’m typing this, it is 00:07 on Sunday night/Monday morning and I’m awake. I should be fast asleep but nope, not even a little bit sleepy. My alarm is going off at 06:30 so tomorrow I will mostly be zombified!

It’s all my own fault. I didn’t get out of bed til gone 11 this morning. I was awake by about 9:30 but I was having a little battery-powered me time with some wonderful daydreams about a very dominant Sam Carter *grins*

I watched the first couple of episodes of Rizzoli & Isles. It’s one of those shows I’ve been umming and ahhing about watching for a couple of years. I’ve always heard such good reviews but at the same time I love the books so I was torn. I took some advice and pretended the show was separate to the books and you know what? I thoroughly enjoyed what I watched and am more than a little bit in love with Maura Isles already ♥

Other than that, I’ve just been chilling and listening to music/sorting out my itunes. I managed to copy all the music off my ipod so I’ve been sorting through that, ripping CDs and rebuilding my digital music collection. I’ve been using Spotify so much recently that I’ve not been taking care of the music I own. Apparently it’s time to do that. It’ll be a slow process but it’s always fun rediscovering music that I used to love, had forgotten how much I love and am falling in love with all over again.

Also, and completely unrelatd to any of that, my left hip hurts. :(

Any Dream Will Do

81FIRdPFciL._SL1500_ When I was but a wee llama, I was madly in love with Jason Donovan. You know, back when he looked like this. Oh be still my pre-teen beating heart! The tousled blond hair, the brown eyes, the perfect smile, the tan… ♥

I adored him as Scott Robinson in Neighbours and my little heart was broken when Scott married Charlene. There were tears. I remember it well.

I loved his music too. I had all the singles on 7″ and all his albums on tape. I’m not sure I should even be admitting this but I can still sing along wordperfect to songs like Too Many Broken Hearts or Especially For You (I’d forgiven him for marrying Kylie at that point!), or When You Come Back To Me. My parents even took me up to London to see him playing Joseph in the West End, which started a whole new love.
I still have a ridiculous amount of love for that musical and have seen it many many times. ALL THE LOVE.

Then, of course, it all came crashing down with the drugs and he disappeared into obscurity, once again breaking my tween heart. The pain, the agony! *cries*

I also have no idea why I’m writing a blog post about my late 80s/early 90s love for an Australian soap/popstar. I have however discovered he does an All 80’s Show on Heart FM on a Sunday night so I might have to look into that.

And sure, the drugs and all really aged him badly but he’s still a good looking guy and I also can’t help but think how much he looks like his dad!

I’m now going to be really pathetic and wander over to Spotify or iTunes and see if I can’t find me some ‘classic’ Jason to listen to!
