An insight into my mind involving Leona Lewis, Elbow, and Hummus

1. I am alerted to the fact that, according to NME (and this site) Elbow are apparently "being tapped up [what does 'tapped up' mean?] by the man who wrote Leona Lewis' 'Bleeding Love'." That is, there is a very very remote possibility that Elbow might write the next Leona Lewis album.

2.I go into the kitchen to have something to eat - hummus on toast :)

3. This hummus is SPECIAL HUMMUS. It has olives and tomato puree in it, in addition to the conventional ingredients of chick peas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and sunflower oil. The red shade provided by the tomato puree makes this almost the hummus-world equivalent of the blood orange. One might even call it 'blood hummus'. Which sounds disgusting, but anyway...

4. Blood --> Bleeding --> 'Bleeding Love' by Leona Lewis.

5. Rest of the day: I have 'Bleeding Love' on my head, except in my head it's a duet between Leona and Guy Garvey off of Elbow. Guy's doing more of a spoken-word thang really (just one spoken word, too), in his gruff Manchester voice. This brand new version goes:

Leona: " cut me open and I keep bleeding, keep keep bleeding--"
Guy: "Hummus!"
Leona: "I keep bleeding, I keep keep bleeding--"
Guy: "Hummus!"
Leona: "keep bleeding, keep keep bleeding--"
Guy: "Hummus!"
...and so on ad infinitum.

Seriously, "you cut me open and I keep bleeding hummus". What is wrong with me?!??

In case I haven't already imprinted that auditory image (oxymoron - whatever dude...) on your consciousness, here's the original:

And, to give you an idea of Guy Garvey's "gruff Manchester voice", here's an awesome song by Elbow, the first single off their second album:
