i'm going to the pub.
anyone wanna go to a britpop night? fair enough...
rumor has it!
I still maintain I was told it was a 'ladies day' originally. I'm going to drink and watch cricket for two days. You enjoy looking at meerkats. Loser.
before then i have sod-all to do in work, i just asked my boss if she had any work i could do and she was all "no cos i've got nothing to do either"
i have 5 things to do tonight. she is on the increasingly un-doable list.
GET THEM RIGHT
we're getting someone to babysit for our daughter. never mind turning 30, it's being in a position to ask other people to babysit for you that really makes you feel old.
if you can run me back to Manchester :-)
Is it your birthday today???
but we have someone arranged.
it's my birthday tomorrow - hoping the weather holds out!
going to view a flat with a girl. then:
- i ditch her, meet up with my flat mate and we head out to several pubs and get very drunk.
- she comes along with and we go out with my flatmate and go to several pubs and get very drunk
- she comes with me back to my flat and we eat egg fried rice and watch my newly (hopefully) installed sky.
listening to spotify, posting on here and creating a spreadsheet about all the films I've seen to avoid the BIG BROTHER EVICTION EVENT downstairs. Good grief.
Sex up my CV on Saturday
Sunday - go to the worst place in the country. For a week.
Fireworks, jugs of pimms, thousands of drunk posh people.
...oh, and I don't do plans. That was I can't be surprised when they change.
This will take ALL WEEKEND.
might go to a party around the corner, but i don't know the hosts and my invite is rather spurious. Subsequent to this I shall stare at my ridiculous choice in fabrics and wonder why I bought them in the first place when I have no desire to make anything with them.
Maybe, if there's time, go for a pint in the pub with Oranjeboom on tap :-)
I've never been to 333's
Is it shit?
Depends. How do you feel about paying £3.80 for a lukewarm pint of Grolsche?
will I enjoy it then?
Apparently some people might make the most of the opportunity to laugh at how old I am.
Tomorrow, I am going drinking around Highbury Corner, and then on to the Garage, for the first time. Again, I shall be publically mocked for my decrepitude.
Anyone else? If so, where?
(preferably within a short hop of Hoxton)
at the Windmill tomorrow and/or sunday. or maybe tomorrow night i'll go to see male bonding at this warehouse show next door to the warehouse i was meant to move into but couldn't but maybe not because i think people i want to avoid will be there. personal politics r ghey.
more likely i'll just stay at home and eat pasta and glue together CD sleeves.
i'm also avoiding because of people who will be there. this is happening more and more lately.
and there's another party to go to.
in answer to the thread, tonight - working on project stuff, tomorrow night party, sunday more work (but fun non-work really work)
^5 for personal politics
tomorrow - fly on an early am flight to Dublin, help my mother shop for party food, 'DJ' at my brothers 18th party in the house, go out.
sunday - maybe go on a march in dublin.
monday - faff around dublin, fly back to london!
fairly intricate story, well-told. there was no dude with an acoustic guitar though.
there are 3 schticks he does: stand-up, 'theatre-style' performance and him reading stories.
so I fully unpacked my room. Now I get to fully enjoy it for three weeks before I have to pack up again. I'll be doing that this weekend (i.e., reading and listening to music atop my bed). I'm also getting taken out to lunch today by my 30-something friend. Thirty-something friends are fucking ace. In addition to being totally legal, they have ten years extra wisdom they're happy to share with you.
Are under 30s a bit illegal? ;-)
After last night's exploits I seem to have acquired a new tambourine and some exotic bruises on my right knee. I need to clean my flat a bit, change the sheets in the SPARE ROOM AND THEN GO TO MEET MY MATE OFF THE BUS FROM GLASGOW (woops shouty caps, shhh) and then see where the night takes us. This will, predictably, mean that we go to the same 3 pubs, in the same order as always.
