i really need some distraction
so, talk to me please
how was your night, etc
Then I napped between 8 and 10:30. Do you see the point I'm trying to make here?
or someone has been drugging your beverages during the day?
erm, horlicks? :\
I just set my alarm for 12 tomorrow and try not to give in to the urge to sleep during the day?
and then snooze for about an hour
I'm actually in the library doing some work, exam period tends to make me nocturnal, in fact it seems completely natural for me to be awake now - not tired at all! Anyone up to much or just sat at home?
it's past 4 in the morning! what kind of work are you doing?
yeah my body clock or at least sleeping patterns are all fucked up, it feels like it's about 10pm or something.
i'm not up to anything at all, i did go to the pub for a couple of hours but have been home for a while now and am really bored.
I fail at deadlines, well I do have reasons but crazy relatives dont cut it for extensions apparently :(
It would be setting a precedent, *apparently*. Everyone knows the "deadline" isn't the real deadline, anyway.
i've finally finished all of my uni shizzle. i realise that isnt really helping though. good luck and all! theyll still let you submit it late though?
they're taking off 5% a day but at this point i don't really care anymore as long as it gets in at some point.
I'm thinking "oh shit my degree is slipping through my hands" would probably benefit me somewhat more
that's all that matters right?
only need a 2.2 to get on to my masters so guess that's what i'm aiming for now
a 2.2 really isn't that hard to get
but i will hate myself forever if I don't get a 2.1 because I'm gay like that, ohwell, whatevs.
Just write an acoustic album and get it produced by Steve Albini.
might do, might just.
just listen to bright eyes until nothing else seems important anymore. WARNING, this plan does not get the offical Zapsta seal of approval.
I don't get why anyone would listen to Bright Eyes when they could listen to Elliott Smith, anyway.
until then, i'm sticking with conor
probably shouldn't admit that on here.....abandon reply?
i'm really only just discovering bright eyes now
and trying to decide who I want to produce my album.
(im just going to pretend like i know who that is)
Dinosaur Jr bass player. He hasn't done any production that I know of but I really like the production on pretty everything he's been involved with, so maybe he'd be able to replicate that.
yeah, i dont see any reason why he wouldnt.
he's in some kind of uber-indie-producer "zone" or soemthing :S (this is where I put "safety wink" yes?)
Soon to be 13
as long as you guys keep it up i'll be fine
hows.........stuff? the love life maybe? or the work life? or just life?
WELL, one of the things thats stressing me out the most at the moment is that i have to find somewhere i can leave all of my stuff over the summer, i'm leaving in 10 days and i have no idea what to do and dont really have any money to pay for storage :( but at least i finally got around to borrowing enough money for my plane ticket home!
how are you, apart from the stuff you mentioned up there ^^ somewhere?
like, north wales or england. so yeah, they all suck
I'd just cover it all with semen and faeces :(
I cannae sleep
No need to be Scottish about it.
what have you been up to tonight then?
This really good film set in the 80s about Thatcherism and the effects it had on society during the 80s. You probably saw it advertised. Had some red wine and joints with my flatmate. He went to bed. I;ve been writing crap lyrics and cleaning.
yeah i do know it, i wrote an essay about it a month ago or so. i quite like it, and also quite fancy woody.
i was drinking by myself and then went to the pub with a couple of mates and then came back and drank the rest of my tequila and started this thread and i was planning to go to bed before 5 but its closer to 6 now and i'm not even tired, so i pretty much fail.
If it's in Cardiff (from profile) I know quite a few people there I could ask about it?
I'm ok, bit annoyed at the moment because I've cunningly finally found a guy I reeeeally like at uni but i'm leaving in 3 weeks. Ohwell nice to have met someone I guess, let's just hope that the "one single soulmate" thing isn't true.
for the sake of one, fleeting moment of happiness? You bitch.
you're ideals were all based on disney films anyway and you know it :P
can i have that one fleeting moment of happiness now plz?
god, i'm hopeless
that must be pretty close to my worst post ever
i do apologise
but it did make me laugh
talk about you, lots, why are you going away? where are you going to?
Also Zapsta I'm stalking you on Facebook at this very second, are you quite scared? Should I probably not admit to the stalking?
more turned on. Tell me your name so I can stalk you as well. From memory, last time I tried, I managed to narrow it down to two people.
I think my London network is blocked so unless you feel like joining the sheffield university one your screwed.
I am stalking you!!!!!!!!!!!11
I've no idea.
How do you know him? and OMG I sent you a message, this is the most excitment I think I've had all week, god that's bad.
but I don't think we talked the entire time we were there. No, we actually *met* during our brief time at university together, although we probably wouldn't have had any real relationship if it weren't for the fact that we had school in common, so the fact that we went to school is relevant, even if we didn't really know each other from there. You?
I thought he went to habs? Erm he's kind of a friend of a friend that I've met a couple of times.
otherwise all those years of bullying and torment were for nothing.
I recognise the name. I was in the year below Kento though. He took a gap year.
I'm thinking of the actor.
Rob's the friend that I know Kento through, sorry to hear about bullying, bullies is shit.
although it wasnt quite as much stalking as it was ust finding his profile from someone elses friends list or something.
as a purposeful stalk is it? :P Also he knows people I know at Bristol which makes it all more exciting (for me atleast)
a friend of mine is supposed to be looking for something for the both of us though. i really dont know whats going on but shes leaving in a few days so hopefully she'll sort something out before then :\
well good luck! Abandoned building maybe - hire a hobo to keep a look out?
I know what's bugging me now. I washed my bedsheets early eve, and I can't find my other bedsheets because I still have a bit of unpacking to do. And so I can't really go to bed and sleep on an empty matress because the bed bugs might bite me. And I'll be cold. And my flatmate won't let me in her bed because she'll get really tempted. Every bed has bed bugs in it. Yuk. Loads of them.
there are probably lots of bugs in my bed cause i think its been here for several years so several people have used it before me :( only ten nights left in it now though!
The common bedbug (Cimex lectularius) is the best adapted to human environments. It is found in temperate climates throughout the world and has been known since ancient times. Other species include Cimex hemipterus, found in tropical regions (as well as Florida), which also infests poultry and bats, and Leptocimex boueti, found in the tropics of West Africa and South America, which infests bats and humans. Cimex pilosellus and Cimex pipistrella primarily infest bats, while Haematosiphon inodora, a species of North America, primarily infests poultry.
Oeciacus, while not strictly a bedbug, is a closely related genus primarily affecting birds.
Adult bedbugs are a reddish brown, flattened, oval, and wingless, with microscopic hairs that give them a banded appearance. A common misconception is that they are not visible to the naked eye. Adults grow to 4 to 5 mm (one-eighth to three-sixteenths of an inch) in length and do not move quickly enough to escape the notice of an attentive observer. Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color and continue to become browner and moult as they reach maturity. When it comes to size, they are often compared to lentils or appleseeds.
Bedbugs are generally active only at dawn, with a peak attack period about an hour before dawn, though given the opportunity, they may attempt to feed at other times. Attracted by warmth and the presence of carbon dioxide, the bug pierces the skin of its host with two hollow tubes. With one tube it injects its saliva, which contains anticoagulants and anesthetics, while with the other it withdraws the blood of its host. After feeding for about five minutes, the bug returns to its hiding place. The bites cannot usually be felt until some minutes or hours later, as a dermatological reaction to the injected agents.
Although bedbugs can live for a year or as much as 18 months without feeding, they typically seek blood every five to ten days. Bedbugs that go dormant for lack of food often live longer than a year, well-fed specimens typically live six to nine months. Low infestations may be difficult to detect, and it is not unusual for the victim not to even realize they have bedbugs early on. Patterns of bites in a row or a cluster are typical as they may be disturbed while feeding. Bites may be found in a variety of places on the body.
suck blood every 5-10 days
bites in various places
