White rose

I took this photo while we were standing in front of John's house in Leeds after getting back from Prague. No one was home and Nathan was making phone calls trying to figure out where John's roommate was. It was really just a stoop with some soil, no garden to speak of, but there was this one rose bush with this one perfect white rose. Only as I looked at it now did I remember that the white rose is the symbol of Leeds and of Yorkshire. :)

Leeds festival tickets just went on sale, and the servers for every ticketing site are jammed. Last year it took weeks before the festival sold out, so I really didn't feel the need to buy my ticket immediately, but then the bill came out and I got all excited and [livejournal.com profile] albauk brought up the good point that more people might go this year since there's no Glastonbury. I finally got through on the Ticketswitch site, put in all my information, credit card and all, hit the process payment button and got a friggin error message. Now I'm really pissed. I don't mind going back and doing it later, I just don't want to end up buying two tickets!

And then, in the midst of all this..."Pop singer Madonna announced the dates of her new "Confessions Tour" on Monday - and promised to turn the world into one big dance floor." I'm trying to see the New York date on her website, but of course, that's jammed too.
