"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower; Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour." William Blake

Infinity and Draggin Jeans

September 17th, 2006 by sunflowers

Today to make up for the totally lethargic day I had yesterday I was up at eight and by nine was visiting Lisa who is the girlfriend of the bass player from the band I was managing. Lisa is a makeup artist for Indie bands and is in the process of starting an organic cosmetics company. Usually I just get my hair cut when I am in countries that are cheaper than the UK or at barber shops. But this morning Lisa cut my hair and tomorrow she is dying it for my friends up coming wedding on Tuesday.

Secret Nuclear BunkerThen I went to Infinity (motorbike chain in London) that I was crying outside of yesterday and bought a pair of leather gloves (my summer gloves have a hole in them even though I haven’t fallen off with them – £14.95 will only get you so much) and a pair of Draggin cargo trousers (pants for those in NZ, Can, OZ and US – in the UK pants are your knickers and caused me a bit of confusion when I moved here seven years ago and told someone that I only had two pairs of pants for a four day holiday). Draggin Jeans www.dragginjeans.com.au are made out of Kevlar and the shop had a pair that someone had apparently come off wearing at 80 miles per hour and were reasonably intact. I am well pleased with them as they are soo much better than my sweat inducing textile trousers. Also the kind blokes at Infinity www.infinitymotorcycles.com gave me a 10% discount when I explained my philanthropic motive for my trip.

Then it was up to North London to get my eyebrows threaded (an Asian technique). A painful but much cheaper process than waxing them. Plus they are now died brown to match my roots.

High Beech Tea StopThen I picked up my mate and showed her how I can now do country lanes fairly fast!

We are now sitting at the pub in order to use the free internet (well if you call having to buy three pints of cider between us free) so I can update my website. Ps. I took her to Beech Hill (bikers tea caravan) and I will add a photo tomorrow.
