It's only been two days!

Sorry for the absence (although I now see it's only been two days...feels like longer!) but I've been teaching myself how to play the ukulele! I can play You Are My Sunshine, Moonlight Bay and We'll Meet Again. So, I've been busy focussing all of my attention on my ukulele (well, that and playing Professor Layton and Pandora's Box on my DS) and not thinking quite so much about blogging. I have a couple of questions that were asked of me which I will answer very soon plus a couple of other things planned, like what inspired me to take up the ukulele.

Until then here's a ukulele song I love:



Oh, and I thought it might be a good idea to let you know where else you can find me on Ye Olde Internets, if you're interested:
I'm andreajade at last.fm - I've had this account for a few years, now, so it's not 100% accurate as a reflection of my current taste in music and I don't want to reset the charts
I'm neverreal at livejournal - my journal is friends-locked so if you have an account just leave me a comment here and I'll be sure to add you back!
You can find me here on flickr.
And here on twitter.
I've also just joined Goodreads and you can find me here.
Edit: I forgot about Queens of Vintage - you can find me here.

I do have a multitude of other accounts at other places but these are the ones I use somewhat frequently...how do I ever manage to get anything done in 'real life', I wonder? Oh dear.

Love,
Andi B. Goode

  3. That's awesome! I think you'd love my friend Uni and Her Ukelele: http://www.myspace.com/uniherukelele

    I love her songs, and she's a great performer.

  4. Well done, Andi! I think it's an excellent idea to make the effort to learn new skills. So many folks are encouraged to be passive today & just watch life go by. Unfortunately the media, rather than getting folks off the sofa, tends to sensory-overload them by showing thousands of avenues of pleasure available 24 hours a day whereas in The Fab 50's at least there was no-transmission periods which forced people to get up off the sofa! Anyway, have yourself a really fine day.

    I am, &c.

  10. You are such a joy of a soul, Andi, it's so neat that you took up the ukulele! :) It's certainly a cool instrument - and one that seems so perfectly suited to the modern-vintage world.

    Wising you a fantastic weekend, sweetie!
