the lion king is over.
what's everyone doing? i might sleep or something.
How very cool of me.
That is my new chorus.
Maybe. It is pretty shit. I think the recording method (microphone built in to laptop) is shit, but also cause it I am shit.
Think of it as really poor Stapleton.
under the guise of Nicolas Flamel?
It was someone from here anyway
that made the Philosopher's Stone.
i'll show you mine if you show me yours?
i'm in an anti band, we're really shit but it's good to laugh at.
As that is where I am technically excellent. The guitar bits and the vocals are right out of "Bollocks Pipe Dream Band Vol. 3: SHIT". I'll PM it.
I went to the driving range and then drove over a range of roads. I'm now eating six Cornettos and feel ill!
no tv &etc.
i ate some tofu sausage earlier and i still feel uncomfortably full. what flavour are they?
6 for £2 <3
When I move out I'll not get a TV license for a while. I can think of better ways to spend £120!
and agreed about the license. although if you live in a shared house, you can split it? i really really miss tv.
But I don't watch television AT ALL.
Does Germany people need a TV license? It is Germany right?
and we have a tv in the kitchen but i never watch it. german tv = a bit rubbish.
i just want crappy daytime tv. i miss being a student as well.
But there's nothing decent on daytime television!?!
i totally don't pay that. speaking of, i haven't paid for my internet since october. i think the guy that set my computer up left the flat. so i'm getting free internet! and german tv is in german. it makes my head hurt after work. i'm gonna clean the kitchen and hang out there more though.
My experience of German TV is the language programs we did in class and some pawrn we found in my uncles TV years ago!
I think I'm gonna follow suit and head off this. God knows the last time I had an early night!
Night all x
Candy Castle by Glass Candy bumpin on out = one very happy duck
Also just watched Wild China (check it out on the BBCi site or wherever you can); beautifully shot and very interesting.
there's 160 people online! somebody new come and say hi?
Have you had a nice weekend? Any exciting plans for the week ahead? If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go?
how are you this evening?
i have nothing planned for the week ahead, except working 50 hours, and also i get paid on friday. oh and i'm going to a friends house on weds for "tea and fruit" (i'm trying to eat healthily). AND there's another bank holiday on thursday so i get a day off. i hope the weather gets better. yourself?
if i could go anywhere tomorrow... i'd not count leeds 'cause that's boring. i would say iceland :)
Chatting to jabe on the msn, he's ace <3. Watching indiana jones, he's ace. Eating some Fruit n Fibre, that's ace.
Bank holiday thursday?
ooft yeah, it's been really nice down south though, i frolicked in the garden all day, built a gazebo, mowed the lawn, played with my dog. i love sunny sundays. off to brighton tomorrow, bumming about with mgmt and a couple of colleagues from noo yoik, woot.
totally agree with iceland, it's beautiful
in a totally non-creepy way (i have to add this after the worrying amount of stalking going on....)
yeah germans don't have much of a reasoning in their bank holidays. no idea what this one's for but it's the 3rd one this month. pretty good!
over here it's been raining, real bad. it's my first day totally alone in about 4 weeks and it feels really odd.
have a nice day tomorrow :) what do you do, if you don't mind me asking?
work? uni? travel? etc. where abouts are you? my knowledge of germany is limited to a seedy berlin nightclub, sadly :(
thanks, should be a fun few days. as for me, i just bum around xD
which is in the south, really close to austria. i'm in my 3rd year of uni and i do german, so i had to go to germany. i chose to work as i support myself and couldn't afford it another way, so i have a 12 month contract with allianz (insurance company) being a dogsbody.
We have one on the Monday, of course...
I love wolves they rule....
I think you said you hate me for going to nasty fest but I hope you dont hold it against me hehe.
I'm ever so board and tired and watching some film with cowboys, I think they fancy each other I could be wrong?
in a very manly way.
nah i don't really hate you. i only hate people i know IRL. did you have fun at nastyfest? i can't wait to be back, although the fav is a bit of a shit venue, i'll be going to the why? gig in a couple of weeks!
i think they do fancy each other, your gaydar must be fully functioning!
I had alot of fun at nasty fest I had never been to the fav before and your right it sucks you cant really see anything anywhere but the front, which is on reason for getting on stage for the mae shi i guess.
that Why? gig is very tempting I would love to see them live.
I didnt think you really hated me hehe dont worry.
you say you cant wait to be back.... where are you now? any place cool.
as i always say/moan about being homesick on here. the internet is my therapy.
you should go to why? it'll be ace! cannot wait.
have the cowboys started kissing yet?
then went back for a good old hug and kiss later.
ahh cool I wouldnt mind going back to Germany I havent been since I was a little kid on a chirsitmass time where it was so damn cold I aparently had to ware tights.
I think I would get homesick to if I was away some place far away for quite a while. So hugs to you and I'm sure you will be gagging to get back when your back in Leeds for much time hehe.
If I have some cash I will head to the Why? gig I love their new record to peices.
just for the mulled wine really.
do you go out in leeds much? OH do we have mutual friends? i get easily excited by this stuff a lot!
and thank you, i've only been away for about a month now, but i've been living here for 8 months. well, 8.5, 3.5 more to go! not long at all!!
not as often as I would like really, I try to get to some good gigs when I can. I went to HEALTH at the brudnel social club recently and naty fest but not much else for quite some time as I'm well skint and jobless at the moment in a little town near york... So I doubt we have any mutual friends but maybe we will bump into each other some time at some gig hehe.
Mulled Wine RULEZ! I would love to go and check out the german minimal techno scene I love that stuff.
well i have another 3.5 months like i say, so when i'm back lemmie know what gigs you attend :)
i'm not a fan of minimal techno, but apparently it's big in munich.
from what I can gather. it has a big underground folowing in leeds to hehe the people at back to basics love it and KeToLoCo is a new up and coming minimal club night that started as mad mad house partys in leeds.
I will indeed let ya know if im heading to a cool gig in leeds when ya about :) x
used to work at the warehouse, and i know one of the KeToLoCo djs, i used to work with him! the house party happened round the corner from my old house.
hehe we may have a mutual friend... was it Danny Raper?
little guy, dark hair?
I'm hoping to go down to london for one of their nights at the scala soon... so I will maybe see him then.
My step bro DJs with them some times as well.
never went (as i didn't like the music) but cookie was really nice. enjoy!
I have heard of a few of them lot.
How do I scrobble my iPod plays? I want you to see how good I am at listening to music and stuff.
is that right?
what you up to?
talking to twentynine, dreading maths and english gcses on tuesday. you?
i feel a bit sick again, ate too much bread. just talking to a friend and deciding what to do now...
off now x
night night everyone
who knows what will happen later!
have you seen the chronicles of indiana jones? top class television.
hysterically crying down the phone because my laptop had temporarily died on me, complete with all my essays.
I'm a little embarrassed such a situation would reduce me to a blubbing idiot, but that's probably the lack of sleep. and lack of cigarettes to calm me down. And the fact i wrote 2000 words of luhmann today before it happened. BWAHHHHHHHH.
can you not get it back? but you can kinda remembered what you wrote though? god that's horrible. have a break and some chocolate and tea?
i have no idea how i would write all that again, i don't really remember what i wrote either.. luhmann is a head fuck. I called my mum in amsterdam from my mobile, to get her to google apple troubleshoots for me..(and to cry lots) ... that's gotta be the most expensive whine i've ever had.
Managed to get my computer to start up again, but i lost a fairly big chunk of work :( And my computer is making weeeeiiirdddd noises, it sounds like it's going to blowup/implode/burstintoflames/etc..
try to get an extension? if you explain you might be able to get one?
what computer do you have? i might not be able to help but i'm sure there is someone on here who can...
what do you do? god i don't miss all nighters from essays, that's something i'm not looking forward to.
..for computer failure crappiness. they're really harsh about that. And i've already had an extension previous to this for other (personal) stuffs so there is no way i can get that extended! i guess i'll just have to not sleep for a few days....!!
I have a mac powerbook g4. so much for these fuckers being invinciiiible. :(
I'm doing my Masters... 100% of my Masters is graded on these essays. fuck fuck fuck fuck. ah well.. it's really times like these i wish i hadn't quit smoking a couple weeks ago ha ha!
pro plus? when's it due?
i really hope you get it sorted. that is just sods law. i have a macbook, but the budget one. it does it's job! although i need an external hard drive for photos and music or something.
my thoughts are with you and luhmann. you can do it!!
it'll get sorted i am sure. i'll be smiling when it's all over and done with!
yeah i have an external for my music, but it's full so i need another one.. definitely worth the investment! although i should really consider saving my essays to my external HD in future! it seems obvious now... oops!
bit random, and we're only "very low", but oh well.
good luck! like i said, YOU CAN DO IT.
oh yeah, i seem to be very low with everyone :(
thanks again lovely! xx
that happend to an ex of mine it wasnt fun at all. I had to go to the shop where she got it from and bully them into sorting it out for ages and ages cos they were being rubbish. Hope you get somethign sorted soon.
computers are super lame.
maybe you will feel more refreshed after a sleep tonight and rember some of what you wrote again. The stress and hassel will pretty much get in the way of you thinking about essay stuff I would imagain. Good luck I well feel for ya having this problem especialy on a important piece of work like this.
i need a good nights rest. i am wayyy to stressed right now to consider doing anymore work tonight! i am hopeful it will all return to me tomorrow! *being positive* :)
ooo and have a brew... I love brews.
does make the world go round!
might even spoil myself and have a crumpet. oooooooh.
how is your evening anyhoo? hopefully a little better than mine has been?
My night has been ok I'm kinda recovering form a heavy night giging yesterday, invading the stage for the mae shi and moshing to No Age... plus my train home got cancleed so had to wait for so long to get home... so today has mostly been sleeping and sitting as my feet wreck. thanx for askin hehe x
should def be all about serious chilling out. i'm used to being horrendously tired and hungover on a sunday... so i'm finding it a bit odd not to be... Ooooh how was the Mae shi? you'd seen them before hadn't you? hopefully brilliant again? Well i am meant to be seeing them at dot to dot this coming weekend... i was really banking on having a large enough chunk of work done in time for the weekend! oh dear! hopefully won't have to miss it, fingers x'd...
ps. i hate trains! glad you got home in the end though :)
where awsome yet again... I love theose guys and they aparently love me to after I told them this hehe...
A mate and I started the stage invasion last night cos we were having so much fun, then they encouraged everyone else up there too. I like to think of them as the most fun band in all the land.
there set was great fun I really hope you get to see them the music is ace and the atmosphere is great.. I just cant help dancing around and joining in with them hehe
i love a bit of stage invasion :)
If nothing else will motivate me to get my work done... the thought of having to miss this gig, certainly WILL!
I'm glad you had an ace time!
de-stress you and give you somthing to look forward to.
the mad thing about the stage invason was that when I was up there and lots of others joined me I looked to my side and I saw a mate of mine from school that I hadnt seen for 9 years... I just said fancy meeting you in a place like this hehe
We were putting as a team everything together into the one large file, and, as I wasn't doing it, I think things were being deleted as we went. With 45 minutes to the deadline one of our group printed the report, all 200+ pages... and then deleted the file from the computer. Incredibly, the printer did not print it and we lost it. So, frantically running to the IT department to get them to "restore" it or something. We got a earlier version printed out and hadned in but it missed about 15% of the most important conclusion stuff.
We never did hand it all in, BUT I managed to get out with a 2.2 so not all too bad.
I feel for you. That 40 minutes are probably the worst I have ever felt - total blind panic and rage. :)
man computers suck ass. I'm gona get myslef a type writing monkey traned up I reckon.
glad you got it 'restored', but computers suck sometimes.
I'm getting prepared for my first day working in a call centre tomorrow. I've never worked in an office environment before and I'm slightly nervous of having to work with other people (and talk to people all day) but excited too, of what I'll be able to now and where I'll be able to go with the salary.
I'll have internet access though, so I might email you at some point in the week (I deleted my Facebook you see). In fact, if anyone wants to correspond during the office hours, PM your email address, I could do with the company in these changing times for me.
Plans for tonight now are to wind down, listen to Radio 4 at 11pm for a program about the summer of 1968 and try and sleep solidly to be fresh tomorrow.
long time no speak! you have a new job then? not wrecking sofas anymore?! i'm alone all this week, but i'm being 'monitored', so i've made myself some personal targets. hopefully stick to them!
i'm sure you'll be fine, office work is quite easy! and i will pm you my email! woop.
Just listen to everything and make a note of it later that you can use in your Sitcom.
I'm very nerdy, and I sound like a twat.
i'd go to sleep listening to it, and somehow magically wake up knowing alot more than when i went to sleep. it was BRILLIANT! although yes, i sounded like a twat too. you're not alone.
to the ricky gervais, karl pilkington, steve merchant podcasts and I have only learned that jelly fish are 97% water and karl wants them to add another 3% of water to get rid of them...
In fact, I am going to start them again tonight.
I TIP MY HAT TO YOU SIR!
my fav moment is when they find out Karl has started to write poetry in serries 3 hehe pure gold
Mr K Dilkington makes me shit myself every time. EVERY TIME.
I got listening to them again recent.y and I forgot how ace they where. Dilkington is well funny. and the bit about if Karl was a slug what would he do.... throw him self in the salt pot hehe
the philip pullman audio book... and i had the most horrible nightmares! i got attacked by a polar bear that tried to eat my face. I don't fall asleep to pullman anymore. FACT.
i'm thinking of posting my mum me singing happy birthday to her for her birthday, think she'll like it?
even if it was just to laugh at ya hehe sounds like a sweet idea.
as zapsta so rightly says, my vocal talents leave a lot to be desired. but it's the thought that counts, eh?
I know my mum would likt cos it would be well funny maybe even do a free style rap to end the happy birthday song.
and she totally won't be expecting it. huzzah for garageband.
after singing 'Happy Birthday' when they were younger? I'd do that, then finish with "You're 47! Ahahahahaha. PWNED!" Fuck. I've just realised it's my mum's birthday in 6 days. I actually had no idea. Well at least I have something planned now.
no clue what to get her. arghhh
and just awoke from a nap.
when I went to the shops for a loaf of bread. I've almost finished my Jaffa Cakes </3
It'd top a Sunday
I think that(Play Stapleton on your radio show this week)you should go to a 24 hour shop and buy some Maryland cookies.
That's probably exactly what I'd get if I could be arsed. My radio show's over until October :(
I'm bored as well. I don't want to go to work tomorrow, boo. Still, 4 day weekend coming up. Aalright!
Is it too late to be eating donuts?
jam ones? how come you have a 4 day weekend? i have to work so much overtime. bed is overdue!
I have a 4 day weekend as it's a bank holiday, but being an council 'employee' I get the Tuesday off as well!
At least with overtime you get extra pay!
just days off. i need them for my trip to leeds. it's gonna be sooooo boring this week.
This next week is going to drag. I applied for a new job two weeks ago and still not had a reply. That's not good is it? The interviews are this week. :'(
WHat job was it?
It's slightly more money, but not really what I want to do, although I'd like to improve on my people skillz.
