one week in sitges...

Hello all! I have returned from a week in Sitges - and what a week it was too :) Sitges is a real place of contrast - on the one hand its a sleepy sea front quaint little village, with cobbled streets, great old buildings, lovely beaches and some marvy shops. By night its a den of iniquity with gay bars throbbing at every corner and every male strutting their washboard abs in tank tops. It can be a bit of a meat market too so i was happier than ever that i already bagged the stud known as DazPanic!

Now, while we did squeeze in a couple of nights at a great little bar called El Piano, the holiday turned out to be more restful than either of us planned... Monday and Tuesday i was utterly exhausted and was sleeping every few hours, then Weds Darren got (and still has) flu and spent most of the time coughing up stuff and sweating. Poor lamb. So we spent most the holiday in the hotel room - luckily it had a great private roof top terrace and sea views, and did prove to be utterly relaxing, so here are some high - and low - lights of the week...

~ discovering El Piano and watching the rather brilliant video presented at the top of this page for you (if my youtube embedding has worked - last time it erased the entire post! Boo you whore!)

~ Darren acting out a sketch from new British show Miss Jocelyn where he rubs his bottom on his seat pretending to have worms (you kinda have to see the show!) Cue only me getting it and other people moving away probably thinking he has got worms... (he doesn't)

~ the neighbours playing Nicki French "Don't Play That Song Again" again and again and again until their other neighbours starting hammering down the door in sheer exasperation...

~ the gross old german guy by the pool who everytime i looked down from my ivory roof terrace would put his hand down his pants and touch himself! IN PUBLIC!!!

~ getting to catch up on my reading (3 books) and finally getting round to properly watching last seasons finale of the so obsessed with it, its ridiculous Grey's Anatomy. CHOOSE MCDREAMY!!!

~ finding out i really like the new Jessica Simpson cd, quite like Justin's, like most of Christinas and secretly like Aly and AJ! Plus Stefy - is that not the album No Doubt should have made after Tragic Kingdom??

~ trying to explain to the pharmacist in pitiful spanish that darren had flu and him just looking at me with bemused expression on his face...

And probably lots of other things, but i am tired and want to go to bed! So maybe more tomorrow...

BUT! Come back soon cos i am all inspired and have lots to write about this week with requisite mp3s including The Feeling! The Bishops! Jamelia! Scissor Sisters! Freddie Mercury's Birthday! Mika! The Coyote Ugly Girls?! and lots more if other people don't do it first. Its good to be back :)

    And it's good to have you back! Welcome home! :) We must have a night out when poor Darren is fully recovered! Were there many lesbians in Sitges? We're looking around for possible next year holiday destinations!
    Love Ruth

    You're back. We missed you!

    I think vacations are like massages - toxins that you've been holding in are released and voila, you are sick! :(

    Let Fall 2006 begin NOW.

    Welcome back... I just got back myself, from 3 days of driving through the Arizon desert.

    And Stefy? God, no. I liked "Orange County"... but I feel like these bands that mine the '80s are such a dime a dozen these days.

    oh how fun to drive through the arizon desert :( yeah, i know about Stefy, but honestly these 80s bands are like crack to me - i just can't get enough. Not that i'm on crack or anything like that. Just pethadine :)
