[Life] A Night In the Heatherlands

Heather Alexander concerts are always fun. This time, we got to hear some songs from the two upcoming albums (the one that goes with the "Merlin's Descendants" novels coming out on May 1st, and the one of Heather's own music coming out in June), as well as old favorites. ("Hap'n Frog," "Frog of Cambreadth," "Dance in the Circle," "Golden Ring," "Neverland" -- first time I'd heard it live -- and of course, "Black Jack's Lady" and "Yo Ho!" among many others.)

The Lord Protector was there, of course. And I think most of us had lost our voices by the end. In honor of the stuffed Hersey's-kiss-bearing teddy bear someone presented Heather with -- christened 'Sir Candy-breath' in honor of 'Cambreadth' -- I quickly filked 'March of Candy-breath.' (Which earned an, "Oh... oh GOD... and you know, this is one of the better ones...")

Too tired to write coherent post. Sleeping now. Though I provide the 'March of Candy-breath' below...

March of Candy-breath
by Rachel Blackman
tto 'March of Cambreadth,' Heather Alexander

Plastic rips, wrappers gleam!
Rich dark chocolate, filled with cream!
Calorie count up in the sky,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

Nougat-filled, or crispy rice,
Bite-sized chocolates sure are nice!
Candy binge makes dentists cry,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

Run down to the corner store,
We've run out, we must buy more!
Grab a bag, untwist that tie,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

Sugar crash has laid us low;
Feel real sick, and move real slow!
Couldn't know until we'd try,
HOW MANY TO GET A SUGAR HIGH?!

By the way, this week's Dr Who is absolutely bloody brilliant (to paraphrase the doctor).

The ending is absolutely fantabulous too and the actress playing Queen Victoria is brilliant!
Pauline Collins was also excellent in the movie Shirley Valentine.

Curiously, IMDB says that she also had a guest role in Doctor Who in 1963, which almost led to her becoming the Doctor's companion.
And speaking of companions, next week's episode is the one with Sarah Jane, K-9 and Anthony Stewart Head in! Woo!
I couldn't help myself. I went SQUEE! when I saw the 'next week' preview. I knew it was the third episode of the season, but still. Sarah Jane! K-9! Of course, we knew Sarah Jane was destined to return, ever since the 'Who Is Doctor Who?' website had a comment in the visitor guestbook from 'Sarah Jane Smith' asking if anyone knew how to contact this 'Doctor.'

(The rumor I've heard, and I have no idea if it's true, is that Elisabeth Sladen was the one who left the comment -- she's still quite active in the Who-world, what with the various audio dramas, including the 'Sarah Jane Smith Adventures' stuff -- and the team found out, and went "oh, now, THERE's a fun idea... have Sarah Jane and K-9 on a show... we should go talk to her...")
