Y'all know what time it is.
start of gay pride today, can't wait....some of my friends are back in the city, it should be good.
Get my drink on, get my dick on.....awesome......party until 7am tomorrow!
Tonight I will be slobbing out in PJs and eating buckets of pasta whilst watching Mad Men. Then tomorrow we are going to Covent Garden as I think there is a food market there? It'll be a nice day out anyway. On Saturday night I'm gonna go out and get drunk (which I never do) so that should be eventful.
Mmmmmm, borough market....
There's a market in Covent Garden alright, but anytime I've been there it's more antiques etc. Trying to think of other food market but can't right now, perhaps Broadway would be good, if a little smaller but you could always have a nive drink in the pub and sit in the park for a while in the sun (if it's sunny).
I think I may go to borough market like Chris suggested. I think thats just on the southbank so would mean I wouldn't have to get on the underground yesssssss!
Although, coming in from Romford I'm guessing that you might pass Broadway any-ho.
What don't you like about the tube, other than overcrowding etc?
I'm quite a bit claustraphobic and I get panic attacks on the tube :( BUT I'm getting better! I'm going to the Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A in a few saturdays time and I'm nervous so need to get used to the tube I suppose.
and acts like a little reminder that I'm in London.
don't be nervous about it getting it. See, dead easy isn't it?
I just need to snap out of being an idiot really. I used to go on tubes all the time and then on my birthday I had a little panic and not really been to London since. I love London though so it sucks. I suppose if I just get on it more often, i'll get used to it.
The thought of lots of yummy food at the end of a train journey helps.
I very much get panic attacks. I love the concept of the tube and think it's just amazing that you can get across a big city pretty easily, but in reality I hate it. I've not had a panic attack on there, but the possibility of it happening worries me and I avoid it whenever possible. I really injured my foot on it the other week :( If you're not travelling at peak commuter time is is 100% better, so try to be brave x
I just feel a bit trapped down there. I have lots of rescue remedy to calm me and my boyfriend is very supportive and accepts my craziness!
and there's a lovely pub at the end of it on the thames....the name escapes me now though.
I love walking down the southbank. I could walk there from Fenchurch Street station as it doesn't seem too far and I like walking in London. Walking anywhere else is shit.
which is actually in Vauxhall.
Thanks! I probably should have investigated it a bit more.
I've got the flat to msyelf again, so pizza, CM 01/02 and Cineworld Unlimited abuse is also on the cards.
Tonight I'll get the train to Bristol after work and engage in some serious doing-nothing. Tomorrow I will lie in and most possibly 'have it' at a house party. On Sunday I shall return to doing-nothing, only this time with a hangover. Classic weekend sandwich.
After work I dandered around and had a couple of drinks in a few pubs before getting the train back. It seemed quite nice.
Educate me my good man, what is this "have it" all about?
That when one decides to 'have it', one makes a concious decision to attend a party and become inebriated through the intaking of one or more of a variety of substances - be they alcohol or, perhaps, some less legal items.
Bristol is quite nice. I guess this is my fourth time over in the past few months. I was surprised by the size of its city centre and, in general, reminds me a bit of Manchester.
But instead i am going up north(banchory) to see the gfs folks and their new kitten, which no doubt means the gf is gonna bang on at me about getting a kitten for the flat for weeks on end, she'll only end up being disappointed.
Some big shin dig type thing the morrow night also in banchory, then back down the road on sun.
Right now i am swnding my brothers fiance derogatory e-mails about her shitty football team :)
My girlfriend has gone home for the week to look afrer her rent's new dog and all I've had from her in the last few days is texts about how OMG THE DOG STOLE THE TV REMOTE! and how cute and funny and intelligent it is and surely if we got rid of the TV, all our clothes and major kitchen utensils AND smashed a wall through, we'd have space for a dog, right?
Ha, your gf sounds eerily similar to mine in that respect. "I'll look after it, i'll feed it, i'll pay for all of its stuff etc etc.... Of course a couple of months back when we looked after my parents new pup for a night (after my gf going on for ages about having him for a night), i was the one who cleaned up after it had taken a big shit on my floor, i was the one who woke at 6am to take him for a walk in the pissing rain etc etc.
Your gfs are merely asserting their basic human rights to be dog mothers. (yes, bitches) DanielKelly and Lo-Pan, stop being meanies.
this weekend: really want to go to Egdbaston to watch the cricket but the ticket prices are redonkculous. Sunday I am having a pub day with my mate before he heads off gallivanting in Morocco. Also I will be trying to find a job. weeeeeeee
Tomorrow - HOG ROAST
Sunday - organised family 'fun' with the family.
They're all BABY mad at the moment because my cousin's got a 1 year old and another is expecting twins.
I actually started a piece for the Family topic last night; it's going well. Sorry I didn't contribute to Cut, I completely ran out of time.
go to some alldayers this weekend but now I have no money.
Still, new Jersey Shore and a can of Kopparberg tonight <3
I had that elderflower stuff a couple of weeks ago, 'tis well nice or 'lush' as the kids used to say.
I could only find it online on saturday and I really want to watch it in my lunch break.
there wasn't one there this morning though, I'm hoping it'll be there tonight though.
instead I downloaded some kind of "special" that aired after last week's episode and an MTV Movie Awards show thing with them all. oh dear.
you've actually missed quite a bit.
Nudity, scandal, old users returning, BANTER ..... all that really.
Tomorrow - Bleeding the radiators
Sunday - A giant Roman orgy utilising the dug up remains of Frankie Howerd
Or maybe the pub for a bit.
Handy, as it'll stop me going out and thus will actually save me some much needed cash.
Likewise, Saturday I'm heading up north to play a gig at WETSTOCK (urgh) in glamorous Runcorn. We're getting travel, booze and food paid for, then £25 quid each, and it means I get to see the gf, so all in all it should be an excellent and cost-effective trip!
Sunday, back to London to recover.
Tonight - don't know
Tomorrow - going somewhere for this thing
Sunday - going to the cinema I guess
Bloody noisy gits. They're supposed to be here all weekend :(
Building myself a shelfdesk tonight. Listen to some tunes.
Some more DIY tomorrow day, then going to Pickled Oeuf's leaving do on evening.
Sunday - death by flaming pints of rum hangover.
(saturday related. I'm not at all excited about your stupid shelfdesk) :)
I am deeply apologetic to anyone who's going to be on the 20:15 from Paddington in First Class with me and my chums. We may get a bit boisterous on polish lager
I then have to get a four hour train back from swansea at 8:45 on Sunday morning to go to a christening in London. Wooo
but this whole weekend is hectic.
I'll give you the run down!
1400 - Buy tickets for weekends events
1430 - Go to local with friends on Vondelpark and have couple of beers
1600 - go to Albert Heijn and buy a crate of Amstel
1900 - Dinner
2300 - 'Too many dicks on the dancefloor' at paradiso.
Up until 1400 - Recovery
1500 - Beers at local
Evening - Maybe go to Bear necessity or Masterbeat.
Chill out in bars and cafés all day whilst the parades are going on.
Gonna make my annual visit to see my Dad, with the hopeful outcome that he won’t fuck me off to the extent that it reminds me WHY I only visit him once a year.
Go to the pub Friday with some chums.
Go to my mate’s birthday on Saturday with more chums.
Come back to London. Maybe go to the last night at the Stags Head before it closes with some chums.
That kinda thing. Chums.
there is actually a guy in my office who refers to his close friends as his 'bumchums'. Why would anyone say that after 1965? He is not gay. He is landed gentry though.
"He's a very good chum of mine..." doesn't really work.
Still, I like having chums. Though not of the bum variety.
I'm at my desk still a bit pissed from last night. I've managed to dodge all calls so far, until I can get more irn bru and bacon down my neck. My throat is so sore and I have a blotch on my arm. It's probably meningitis. I should probably go home.
We get the keys to our new flat today! :D
I don't get to move in for another 8 days, but I know xylo is very excited about a week of hookers and xbox until I arrive.
Tonight, I'm going to curl into the smallest of balls, weep a little, and sleep. Tomorrow night is my FAREWELL MANCHESTER night out, and i'm slightly afraid.
Tomorrow: Free football and a pint of cider at Chesham United for the Dave Stanley Memorial Shield. Give my older brother his birthday present 6 weeks late.
Sunday: Do a bit of decorating in my daughter's bedroom. Cook a Casserole.
I was going to speak to you about that later having spoken to Steve this morning about Dad's current health situation.
I knew Dad and Steve wouldn't be able to drive you over :)
PM'd you about it now.
I've never been to Walsall before as I've not had a reason to.
Saturday - Nothing planned, probably catch up on sleep, maybe cook some decent food. Played 3 gigs in the past week, could use some proper food and a chance to put my feet up.
Sunday - Band practice. Should probably give the parents a ring too.
Tonight I am going to Somerset House. To, potentially, sit in the rain and watch Mulholland Drive.
Tomorrow I am assisting my friend in selling crap. Her only advice was 'sex sells' so that sounds nice.
Sunday I am meeting my very lovely friend and doing very little :D
