Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

I got a letter from the hospital today giving me a date for my MRI appointment - two weeks after I leave Scotland for good. I've spoken to the radiology department, hopefully they'll be able to reschedule. But in the meantime, the four page letter that came along with the appointment card threw up something else for me to consider in the meantime -

I'm allowed to bring a CD of my choice in so that when I'm trapped for an hour in a tiny space, not allowed to move, with a massive machine whirring and moving and sending magnetic signals through my spine I can listen to something that might stop me suffering from claustrophobia.

I can't decide what to take with me, but I've whittled them down to a short list -

Aqualung - Aqualung
The Soft Bullettin - The Flaming Lips
10 Songs About You - Ben & Jason
San Francisco - American Music Club
Song of Evil Reindeer - Reindeer Section
Final Straw - Snow Patrol
Moondance - Van Morrison

So. I've decided that you should decide. Edel has already cast her vote, for Flaming Lips. Email me with your choice on [shazzle at cluas dot com], I'd be ever so grateful. Deadline will be whenever the hell I actually go in for the scan - hopefully in the next two weeks.
