pretty quiet on here tonight isn't it?
Anyway, wish I was at Glastonbury.
Im so tired after my first week in my new job. the commute might kill me :(
I also managed to lose my security pass on the tube this morning, this is going to be embarrassing on monday when i have to admit it :(
here's a webcomic called daisy owl
also, did you see the caption that some hooligan has put on aversion of your profile pic? "alien versus predator"
my family has just left me. off to Toronto-->Birmingham-->Wolverhampton-->Isle of Man for the next couple weeks. :( I'm sad I'm not going. So it's just me and the 19 year old sister while the youngest two are gone. She's already made the upstairs smell like pot and my parents haven't been gone 3 hours yet.
All I've been to in Canada is Sarnia and a place called Goderich. They're just going to Toronto's airport really--it was a lot cheaper to fly out from there than Detroit where we usually fly from.
I've never done it before, and I'm really only here to keep the house up/take care of our dogs and erm, watch her I guess while the parents are out of town.
you should totally try it! it'll be fun and you'll have good times, provided you get on with your sister
I definitely don't think I'd want to do it with my sister and I don't know if I'd want to do it anyhow. I don't have a problem with it and think it should be legalized to an extent, but I'd definitely never do it in my parents house. Haha.
especially if they have a good collection of Leonard Cohen/Dylan type records
not sure about Cohen though.
How's it in Michigan? It's stupidly hot here.
It's cooled off quite a bit since yesterday/last few days. It's been unbearable so it's a nice change, at least in Marysville apparently over in East Lansing it's still really hot. What are you packing for?
Or by the first of July, at least.
Have you got any good alternative summer plans, since you're not visiting the UK?
I may be going to Boston & Washington DC the week before uni starts up with a couple friends, but I just spoke with my Grandma and she still wants my sister and I to try and make it over and is going to talk to my dad about it when they get to the Isle of Man on the 5th. This seems to be the most up-in-the-air summer I've ever had. My uni mates also want to take a trip to Cedar Point at some point.
I hoped for people to entertain me, but it failed.
letting me alone with my achilles tendon...
i don't wish i was Glastonbury. as lonely as i am here, i feel quite content. which is rather sad really.
It's a bit of a problem.
are you being kicked out so? suxx 2 b u
where would you like to live? i was looking at flights last night and itll cost me something like 400 euros to fly direct to NY :/
I like using this site: http://www.skyscanner.net/
holy shit, cork to JFK, with only one stop, for £200 odd? BOOKMARKED :D
cheers ainsm :)
holiday, jah! plus ive never been but i rly want to like haha
so youre all on your lonesome? you thinking what im thinking? (im thinking houseparty)
and the wages from the only job ive had all year have been spent getting my car taxed and insured, so... not really realistic anyway
a man can dream though
i got really excited about that site a couple months ago when i was looking at flights. :)
haha, as for the houseparty, i'm supposed to be really really studying for my dat on the 10th...plus, i don't need to be kicked out of the house/whatevz as my dad told my neighbor to watch the house (mainly cos of my sister).
actually, you could party, then blame it on the sister!
the dats are like aptitude tests, arent they? so no point studying! :P
I've never seen a flight that expensive. I'm lol'ing.
is it first class, on a private jet or something?
you could buy a feckin house for that!
AND it's a 52 hour flight since apparently you fly to Tokyo first.
But looks potentially better than kayak.
It's not as efficient as kayak. You have to decipher the cheapest grouping of dates yourself.
does your skype work for text stuff?
You mean text chat? Yes, we've done that before, remember? Cheers.
So I'm looking at summer sublets right now and then I'd move in somewhere with roommates for a full lease in September. I'd been looking for proper roomshares earlier this month, but none were good, which is why I'm now in the position of having no place and looking at temporary fixes instead.
NYC is brilliant, and I would love to live there. For college, I really wanted to be in the Bay area, though. Anyway, I'm just staying in Chicago for the moment, I think.
good luck with it!
I'm in the kitchen with Sunny Day Real Estate and a rapidly diminishing bottle of bourbon. Good night on the cards here.
I've had a rotten week, so I think I need a team tom lift. When's your eta?
or maybe before. no later than 2
the knappster said about 1. And ECG gets to Euston at 2:50.
at least you've got the music for it. Diary I presume?
Doesn't get any better than this.
I'm trying to just be friends with the lesbian girl at work but I REALLY LIKE HER.
just regular stuff ya know, nothing too bad, just annoying more than anything.
gonna cook up some steaks in a minute though, watch a film (nick and norah's infinate playlist...just something to numb my brain really) then bed.
instead i'm going to watch borderline-nonsensical japanese transformers episodes.
i really like a girl. like, i haven't liked anyone this much in a long time. we kissed not too long ago, but recently had the "just want to be friends" talk. shame, but life carries on.
which i was planning to use for deposit and rent for the house i'm meant to be moving into next month, and the bank have been useless. worrying.
except i suspect now she was just full of shit.
MAN HUG, ADAM. MAN HUG.
we'll get through it, we will.
Watching Doves play Glasto on the tv and getting a bit depressed. Last year while stuck in a people jam trying to get away from Newton Faulkner I declared that I'd never return but I really kinda wish I was there now :(
Also, my gf is leaving me for 5 weeks on monday, I'm going to miss her little face so much :(
Then on tuesday I've got to hand in my portfolio. There's nothing in it :(
Then exams :(
Things could be worse but, you know.
