Spill while I clean.
Currently watching the last in a winning Come Dine With Me. Am a bit hungover but going to manage one last hurrah at an irish bar tonight. Fri and Sat were just partying, and today at lunch I had some magnificent cheeses and some port! All in all, not bad. Next weekend I'm going on a jolly with a guitar company, which will be a good laugh I suspect. Life is pretty sweet.
And how was YOURS?
I took my nephew to see Jeff Dunham at the 02 on Saturday night which made me cry with laughter, then met Shieldsy and brusma in town who were hilariously pissed, met Shieldsy for a very civilised lunch today, finished The Wire (sadface) and had very long lie-ins. Soap&Skin was cancelled on Friday :*(
Friday I came home from work (which took 2.5 hours after a detour to Boots. I get confused in shops!) then I just fell asleep really.
Saturday I got up early and got ready for a potential day of drinking but it didn't happen. Tristan came over and we went for olives and beer then drank wine at mine for a bit. Went to town and then to Underachievers which was fun, met a bunch of you guys and wore heels without falling over. I have no recollection of how I managed to go to the toilet because my outfit requires getting totally undressed to do so and it's hard to get out of. I guess I just didn't go, quite a feat.
Today I bummed about a bit watching some stand up stuff on the internet then went to the cinema to see The Ghost, which had great potential but just seemed a bit hackneyed. Then I just ate so many nachos that I feel sick, but I'll probably keep going. I'm trying to find funny stuff to watch on line but I can't think what to look for.
This week I'm in London for a bit, so out with a friend one night, working at this workshop thing at the YMCA all the next day and then maybe coming straight back or meeting up with Vikram for some arty farty party. Maybe meet Lizzy for CAKE!
Plans for this week involve further getting ready to move house and, next weekend, moving house.
christ man, how long does it take you to pack? I do it in a night!
I'm not sure how long it's taking me to pack which is why I'm getting it in early...
Last night was a fun night of sorting through all the receipts and papers in my drawers. It was truly thriling...
Apart from a minor bit of twattery on Friday night from one of the venues in town (I luckily don't have much of a reason to go there at the moment as I think a lot of the better promoters have run off, so there's not too many gigs coming up there) it was fun. Friday had too much cheap wine and pretending a dragon fruit was a shrunken tellytubby head.
Had my first BBQ of the year yesterday- nice weather, surrounded by friends, ate food and shot some hoops later on. (For some reason many of my friends are hilarious at basketball.)
Today had band, just about to find some dinner!
HAVE PITY ON THEM.
How's yr cold?
No more four-hour coughing fits :)
Don't exactly feel fantastic but nowhere near as bad as that made me feel.
As I have gave up drinking during the week, I got absolute slaughtered in Newcastle on Saturday afternoon when I finished work at 2. Ive decided im a terrible drunk, and made the mistake of going to the cinema in the evening when pissed, and for the first time in my life, I got chucked out of a cinema. I cant even rememember what movie it was. I think I may have a drink problem.
you could've gone to a sleazy club to chat women up in that state.
My friend from Newcastle drinks an astounding amount. Something to do with the area??? Move!
that may be the problem. I could drink 50 bottles of Bud and be ok, but wine fucks me up. Plus most bottles of house wine in pubs in Newcastle are roundabaout £5.50. Dirt cheap. Ive learnt my lesson- never go and see a movie pissed.
pls don't say 'got my nob out'.
I didnt get my tassle out no. I would have been in a cell for that. I think I kept biting her, and stuffing popcorn down her top. Leading to her screaming and telling me to stop. Im gonna text her and ask what movie it was
the movie was Remember Me. Dunno what it is, whos in it etc. Probably shit
The upshot of this is that I have spent about a fiver. That's nice.
Um, I just watched half of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiant_City It is very interesting and enjoyable.
the most exciting thing that's happened to me this weekend was falling down the stairs a bit and twisting my ankle.
Plans for the coming week: finish and hand in essays, then do all of the stuff i've not been able to do for the past few weeks, like leaving the house occasionally to go places that aren't the library.
starting to think ATP is not worth 6 weeks of self imposed house arrest.
i plan to fuel myself entirely on sugar
he was dressed like a pirate. Hero
Fuck!!! Details please!
he was playing generally 70s punk stuff but he threw in the Johnny Cash cover of Hurt and a 10 minute sketch by Derek and Clive, quite funny watching everyone not knowing what to do with themselves when they came on.
He is a big hero of mine and he had a lot of people coming up to him while he was on wanting photos/to ask questions and I didn't want to be too much of a bother so I literally just introduced myself and said I was a big fan and he was nice, asked me how I was etc. He seemed really happy and looked well which was good to see.
I think he's maybe looking into making a comeback, he sang on stage with Gary Newman a few weeks back so these little dj appearances in trendy little Old St clubs may be part of him getting back into music. Then again maybe not. Either way I'm sure he'll be djing at least in the next few weeks :D
I would love that so much :)
Good to hear he was looking well.
Mainly inside, I was watching the wire for most of it so it wasn't all bad.Going to a 30th birthday next weekend so that should be a laugh.
so better than most weekends.
Traning, revising and getting dragged by my parents to visit my grandma. She lives with my dads brother now and he and my dad dont get along. Cue 2 hours of silence and awkward TV watching.
Ive got a fight tommorow. Im excited. Im ready.
i wanna be your mickey goldmill.
and yes, good luck!
tomorrow i'll probably find out if i get to move into that room that i really desperately want
Please not that new J-Lo movie, whatever its called
My weekend was tiring but good. 8/10.
Friday- played a gig and then got pissed and met a guy on the nightbus dressed as a giant tomato sauce bottle.
Saturday- went to pick up the most beautiful dog in the world and went to a BBQ in Southfields. Me dog ate all the stuff on the barbe but stilll a nice day. Then I went on to another BBQ in Putney...and drank Martini Asti...yum.
The one BBQ I went to was really nice until some guy who brought his bitch of a partner was asking me to explain how I can call myself 'happily single'. What the fruitcake? So it's not possible to be happily single? Bollocks.
Me and prince (the dog not william) stayed over and then we went for a long walk down to Stoke Newington cemetry. It's amazing there, like a Tim Burton film...I have watched about two hours of come dine with me and lots of toast.
I was wondering if you could clean my house as I am very lazy today & bit messy. Interivewing George (purrr) Galloway tomorrow.
Nephew is 16.
No, I can't. My own flat is going to take a week after a fortnight of neglect. Plus the last time I cleaned someone else's flat I was attacked by a dirty rampant rabbit under her bed so other people can keep their grizzlies to themselves ta.
well I don't own any kind of rabbit.
RE: Gorgeous George - I'm covering the election and he's a parliamentry candidate for Poplar & Limehouse.
Next week all my work is due in for assessment, so I'll be busy setting it all up. Then I'll celebrate my completion of 2nd year by going to see Foals friday...
but that didn't stop having a great weekend. I have no problem standing, or dancing for that matter, but please don't make me laugh or sneeze!
I swear it was because I wore flats for more than an hour. My body is used to heels.
You're not in pain are you?
but once up I was fine. I think I sprained a muscle in my chest wall. I only feel this when I try to sit up, or if I sneeze (agony).
I was dancing to 3am though, so it's not serious.
I can't think about anything other than football for at least the next three weeks.
friday was, in theory, a quiet night in watching Lost. BUT we ended up watching iron chef, family fortunes, AND jerry springer as well!
saturday - trash kit album launch followed by party. I learnt that some people on chat roulette really get off on man flesh and verbal abuse. Then I took drugs for the first time since 2007.
I would rate my weekend either 0 or 10, I don't know...
glad you had a good one :)
I liked them. I remember Everett True going on about them a few years ago and having a listen to their stuff, but I'd never seen them live before. Trash Kit were great, obviously.
my housemate had a pyjama-themed birthday party on Friday which was better than expected. Band practice on Saturday, tennis and then working in the library today. Just watched Fish Tank, which my friend had lent me. Good, but pretty grim at times.
This week: I have tomorrow lecture-free, which is nice, but I'll need to spend most of it in the library. The rest of the week's pretty quiet but my living room is going to play host to debate-related drinking games on Thursday, and there's a couple of birthday drinks things next weekend.
Didn't end well.
