You know the format, how was your weekend, week's plans, grumbles or whatever.
fri - went to a gig met roddy woomble, talked about folk for a short bit, held hands with a girl, danced with some others, had chicken from kfc.
sat - no hangover, watched football, walked, grabbed pizza with mates and watched in bruges
sun - lazed about, cleaned kitchen (omg) and played 7 and by in the park. about to go to a pub quiz.
i have fujiya and miyagi later this week. :D
not sure... i don't care, i'll drink corona and look cool listening to them anyway no matter what they sound like 8)
he's not lying! ;)
it's shorter than i've ever had it. i like it lots, makes a nice change. i also tried to dye it red but it didn't work very well... having really dark hair is a bit annoying sometimes
my sisters got someone staying over which means my sister sleeping in my bed which means I've got to listen to her doing them weird noises all through the night like how she chews on thin air all night long. I'll probably end up on the sofa and thats bonk hard :(
On saturday I just hung out with my sister for a bit, and today I was at work >_<
I'm at work again tomorrow, tuesday, wednesday and then finally thursday :O I'll so be doing uni work in between this, I have quite the busy next three weeks.
Hopefully friday I'll be off to see 'Let The Right One In' at the cinema :D Woop!
go see Let the right one in with me
Just go it alone man, I'm always at the cinema solo.
I have no qualms about going to the pub on my own to watch sport or going to see Sale, but can't get my head around the cinema on my own.
The cinema I use is an independent one, shows a lot of artsy films so you get a lot of people going alone, it's socially accepted there, which is nice :D
i was wearing headphones with music playing but some guy stood outside smoking grabbedmy arm and said something to me, so i removed the headphones and said 'what?' He asked me if i'm english. 'am i english?' 'yeah?' 'no, i'm not' he started laughing and shouted something unintelligible to his friends, probably something along the lines of 'do you want some english in you' or something. when i got back outside he was still there with one friend, said 'here she is again!' i told him to fuck himself and he said something else and i said that i hope his mum gets aids. he called me a slag and i walked off.
Other than that I went into town, and this afternoon scored some man points by installing a loft ladder and boarding out part of my loft, and also sorting out my cordless screwdriver. My forearms are fucked from the loft insulation stuff though.
How are you? Has your bin arrived?
They turned up without it on Friday. I sent them back. 'deliver by 7pm' turned out to be 10pm. Bloody fools.
All good here thanks; I've been hermitting. Currently reconciling my hard drive vs my cds and feeling the pain of the numerous ones I didn't rip before now.
You're as sad as me with your ladder, ha.
I got 7.5ml of paint for £25 though, 20% off plus a buy 2 get 3rd free. Hopefully that will be enough for the hallway.
Have you complained to waitrose yet then? I like the mental image of you sending them back.
cos i'd been in the pub for 5 hours.
i had a good weekend.
fri - got recording working so recorded til late, then stayed up way too late pissing around and doing nothing; good times
sat - rota was pretty damn good, tim ten yen is totally great fun live and i think he should play zonino (Y); then went to a flat party in kentish town which was good fun, yay
sun - cleaned the flat, yeah, the entire flat, i'm so domesticated! then i played squash and now i'm knackered and still have bits to do for organising like yeah
I'm not going anywhere. Too jobless. But I had a good weekend and will likely have a good week. I've done jack all, though. Need to study some.
Today shall be spent cleaning up and reading. Maybe dicking around on the internet, as you do.
Today I've been cleaning my housemate's old room that still stinks of her cigarette smoke. Had to stop because I was getting really pissed off about it.
Plans for the week: got the Easter holidays off work except for a couple of days when I said I'd go in, so I'll be doing all the stuff I need to do but can't be arsed with when I've been at work all day: cleaning, catching up on my languages homework, seeing some friends probably.
It sounds like it must have been a wee hellhole when she left it.
It does really stink. I've got rid of most of the stuff she left, or at least moved it into the corridor, and I've hoovered the carpet about 4 times and today I've been cleaning the walls to try to get the smell out of there. It's not working. Still to do: windows, curtains, the carpet again. Then I'll probably be able to start moving my stuff.
It's totally not on that she left it a shithole for you.
but I'm too much of a wimp.
I couldn't have a go at her about it now anyway, she's recently split up with her boyfriend and her dad's just died. :(
Friday: Was shit. Went into the local town, but it was rubbish. One skinflint friend seemed determined to ruin the night for everyone, and some mates couldn't come out that night.
Saturday: Not great, but not as bad. Plans fell apart, so I stayed the night in. That's the shit part. The positive is that I watched Superbad for the first time. It was very funny.
Sunday: Really fantastic day. Went into Cambridge with my girlfriend. It was sunny, we ate toasted sandwiches at CB2 Cafe and spent money on CDs at Fopp. I got 7 CDs and 1 Trojan Reggae compilation for £32. Also got some books (brand new copy of William Fualkner - As I Lay Dying for £2.99!). Then had a decent meal at Zizzi.
Overall, it was alright.
Suggest a film for me to download and watch!
(the original from 1974)
Gotta start revising + deciding future
Gonna start smoking loads, unless people talk me out of it
I was thinking irl people slaping roll-ups out of my hands
But ill take your transatlantic advice into account :)
and extremely cool. go for it
I already smoke
But not as much as im going to start to!
Usually roll ups
But when cigarettes, boring malboro reds
they're the coolest straights. i normally smoke rollies as well, drum blue to be precise
Well cool :D
I gave my tutor a packet of rizla blue as a thank you for helping me in my dissertation. He was ecstatic. Im gonna give them as presents to everyone now, even if they dont smoke.
as i found that every time i bought blues, all the papers would stick together so they'd be no good. i have no explanation for how this happened
on Exmouth Market for some drinks and flirted my ass off with a couple guys, exchanging business cards. Fun times. Came home and had a mini house party with my housemate playing choons. Fun.
Saturday woke up and felt like death - did we speak??? Headed off to a pub lunch I host every other month with a friend and spent the whole day there till closing with various friends popping in and out all day. Later that night went to a friends house and made some music which was fun.
Today have been in recovery - was supposed to go to a friends bday in West London but just couldn't make it. Shame as was going to be escorted by a very cute friend of mine but... it wasn't to be.
What did you get up to?
we'd only had her for about four weeks or so, i've no idea what happened.
also i killed a massive spider two days ago, i feel like a new and better person but don't like being at home anymore, for fear of more spiders suddenly appearing
Yesterday was supersunny=sunburnt. Drew pictures of dragons and pirates for the kids, went on a walk, picked flowers with them, read lots of stories and learnt I can multitask=carrying a 5yr old and a 7yr old at once.
Today had the morning off so sat reading in the sun. This afternoon I've been playing badminton with Ax, covering myself in mud making "pots" with the kids. Also been teaching the youngest to climb up my legs so I can flip him upsidedown in somersaults.
Tomorrow:may be going to some little Ile near Cannes, tues??? Packing. Weds afternoon=crying and catching my plane back to Manchester. I'm going to be distraught :'''(
I can draw you a margay. Only I can't.
OMG bizzy, do you want my graphic novel that I have to do but have no one for whom to do it? I won't start on it for ages, but do you want it? You sent me that nice card and care packet and I've sent you nothing.
does it have a plot yet? And margays are lovely, I've looked after some before. Top contender for most beautiful cat. I can draw you many things alley love. Providing you say that I can send stuff to your miscellaneous address. That or provide me with an alternative one.
I have to work a lot on it. I'd leave it alone but it'll bug me til it's done. I'munna go on MSN soon and then maybe I'll tell you more about it. Teaser summary or something.
Yeah, I can't receive anything still. I have to go work it out at the post office, as if anything'll change, likely. It's absurd that they've fucked it up this way. On the plus side, I'm now getting my sister's National Geographics. The NG mailers themselves have somehow changed the subscription address to mine; it's not even just a fucked up forwarding. I have no idea what's going on.
frogs :((( decline. Not good at all. Started reading about that Egyptian who masqueraded as a male so she could be Pharoah. Hmm I may get cut off very soon as who I'm staying with switches the net off at night. AGHH.
What's wrong with this person?
he heard that wifi waves are VERY VERY BAD FOR YOU and as the wifi box is in their room he turns it off at night.
That or he doesn't want me to speak to you.
Went to a party, watched the girl i like get with someone else then decided to get really drunk so i'd feel better. It worked! :)
Fri - work 'meeting' that very rapidly turned into piss up, on an empty stomach. Hammered by 10, asleep by 11.30!
Sat - friend's birthday/housewarming. Lots of friends who aren't usually together in one place, together in one place. Very pleasant.
Sun - spring cleaning frenzy all day, until my new housemate arrived about an hour ago. Helped him move his stuff in.
Tomorrow - meeting about more than faintly bizarre new work thing. Quite excited.
yesterday i slept.
today i drank alot and watched football, i then got my ass handed to me on a plate by bastards at fifa.
anyway, Saturday, I lay on the grass in the park and read, which was just heaven (Danson). Then had a takeaway with my housematesm watched telly, played Madden '93. It was good.
A pretty productive weekend too, bought some trainers, wrote some lyrics.
The coming week at work shouldn't be too busy, and it's only 4 days. Then some recording and general Easter weektime fun times. I love my life. I like my life.
Today I managed to get a whole two hours of uni work done though... I'm so doomed.
Yesterday, I watched lots of bad american tv ate garlic bread and chatted to my housemate's visiting friend.
On Friday I went to go see A Place To Bury Strangers, it was awesome sort of like seeing the ghost's of psych's past with added drum machines, strobe lights and projections.
mandela hall was PACKED
suporting were adebisi SHANK
asiwyfa are fucking KICKASS
i was MOSHING
there was crowd SURFING
everyone was HAPPY
I went down to a friends grans cottage in Sussex, 9 of us went for only about 24 hours but we had a great time. Its completely in the wilds and we went for a nice long walk in the woods and fields getting completely lost, before stumbling over a couple of fences to get back on track. Slightly sad as I thought we were going for a couple of days rather than the one, and that I only sold four records in my "opening week" but to be fair my laptop has been broken and I only just started doing follow up press release stuff.
Friday I was at Dananananaykroyd/Favours for Sailors/Dutch Uncles.
Yesterday I just relaxed, watched the Grand National and then I pruned a buddleia and cut out some blackberries growing in the azaleas.
Today, I spent the morning at a candidate’s conference in Matlock for the county council elections on 4th June, after which I had lunch outdoors at nearby Lea, had a woodland walk, took some photos, visited the John Smedley factory shop and then went on a short train ride on the Ecclesbourne Valley Railway.
Now I’m listening to Hey Everyone for the first time.
on saturday i bought a bunch of classical records and played at rota and there were people there and then i went for chinese food with people and we all shared and it was lovely
sunday i recorded some stuff with pagan wanderer lu and went to see stairs to korea play and that was also fun
Friday: Studied for exams, etc. I might have done something else, but I can't remember.
Saturday: spent much of the day outside, went to friends house for a barbeque/drinks & to watch our uni team play basketball in the Final Four tourney & make it to the final. Then, we went up to the main road on campus to people watch as our school tends to riot under such occasions. Went to the main apartment area where riots broke out last year to see what was happening--cops were out in full force dressed in their riot gear. Went back to friends house & watched the remainder of the game following ours to see who we'll be playing tomorrow night.
Sunday-worked all day, now have to get to studying for exams & write a paper.
friday: went to a house warming party of a friend of a friend, turned out they had moved in with someone I used to work with, bit awkward and boring
sat: stayed in because people were going out to a town I boycott, watched buffy dvds until the early hours
sun: read books on globilisation in order to bluff my way through an interview on tuesday, went to pub quiz, lost, downloaded clues album very excited
went out for drinks with friends after work, had rather average Chinese food, headed over to Cargo but couldn't get in and I wasn't that bothered anyway. Felt a bit tetchy all evening to be honest, not sure why. 5/10
Saturday: did little during the day, went to a birthday gathering (I wouldn't use the word 'party' really) in the evening. Nice enough. 6.5/10
Sunday: had first band practice which went really well, drinks in pub, then went home and fell asleep, woke up a couple of hours later and then watched The Wire and The Inbetweeners (which is actually very very funny). Good day. 8/10
gig on friday night, too zonked to really get into it but he enjoyed it. very packed and sweaty. should have drunk more. much lazing on saturday morning. birthday meal for friends on saturday night, ordered too much food but by god it was good. boozed self heartily with limoncello at an electro club afterwards, good fun and no hangover, hooray. lazy sunday, up at 12, we had sunday roast in nice nearby pub, afternoon spent watching black books & family guy. came home and had 2nd roast dinner of the day [WIN], made popcorn, burnt pan, watched bits of the day today.
it's been a pretty good weekend.
EVEN THOUGH ITS A CARTOON??!?!??!?!?!
I suppose it is.
