don't dream it's over  
i forgot to mention that the Melbourne show on Thursday night was another amazing performance by Ms. Amos (of course). highlights were her Crowded House cover of "Don't Dream It's Over", plus playing "Cloud on My Tongue" and "Silent All These Years" and oh, i can't remember what else right now (i have it written down though but i'm rushing, i only have 6 minutes of internet time left!), but the setlist was similar to the first Sydney show. i will never grow tired of watching her play that piano & organ at the same time. absolutely amazing.

i fly out of here in less than 2 hours time. my feet are killing; i've been shopping like you wouldn't believe. well, maybe it's not as bad as it appears, really. i decided to buy some Body Shop products to send to Schapelle Corby, even though i'm not entirely sure if she'll get them or if they'll be stopped by the guards at the jail or in customs. blah. i brought just a few nice "essentials" that one would be missing after 7 months of being in a Balinese jail cell - mango scented shower gel & body butter, pretty soap, lipbalm, a loofah puff. it's not much but i am going to write her a letter telling her not to give up hope and that Tori mentioned her in her concert in Brisbane, that's how farspread her situation is touching people. i brought the express post bag so i can finally mail it when i get home.

my dad is back from overseas, tonight i'll get to see him and hear of his own travels. i can't wait.

love to you all! xxx

ps: i will post what i wrote for the Tori competition next entry, when i'm not watching the seconds tick down on the computer ;) thankyou so much for your congratulations -- i will find a way to say in the card i am going to make Tori that all my livejournal friends say hello and "we love you" !!

i was! but i rocked up last, i just got in from the airport, so i arrived in a taxi at like 5pm.
hope you are able to get tickets to the adelaide show!! if you still haven't got them by monday night, go to the theatre anyway, i think at all the shows i saw people trying to sell tickets last minute so you might be in luck :) {plus they'll be much cheaper too!}

I'm happy the Tori experiences continue to be exciting, are you done now or is there another show after Melbourne?

Also, forgive me for living under a rock, but who is Schapelle Corby?
    scarlet's walkkisstheviolets on May 14th, 2005 10:16 pm (UTC)
there is the Adelaide show here tomorrow night, and i am going to meet her at her soundcheck!! *squeals*

Schapelle Corby is an australian girl in Bali on drug trafficking charges after officials found 4kg of marijuana in her bodyboard bag at the airport, she maintains (and many Australians including myself) believe that they were planted on her. it is a really heartbreaking situation as she may face the death penality for a crime she was just an innocent victim of.
