I’ve been trying for weeks now to find someone who would go and see the fabulous Mr Tom Waits with me, with no success. WHO ARE these people in my life? Isn’t someone screening them? How did I end up knowing so many I’m-not-crazy-about-Tom people?

Not to be put off I logged on to buy 1 lonely-sad-ticket for myself and it’s SOLD OUT!

Tom is lucky. The last time people refused to go to a concert with me (you don’t want to know how regularly this happens) the performer-in-question died.
