i'm massively going to the pub.
because its cold and i'm scared. I do have tickets for angelos epithemou but like i said, its cold and i'm scared.
and then having some medicinal port.
Work --- Scotmid ---- Flat (all within about 300 meters) I havent done anything else, I am missing my "local" (is about 2 miles away) as i cannot walk in the snow...I actually feel a bit healthier from not drinking and have only spent £30 all week...
it is like a fucking tree falling down
It was a spectacular dancing on ice-type fall from grace, starting with a camel-spin, before seguing into the 'falling down like a sack of totties' manoeuvre. SOB.
MASSIVELY watching local bands in the pub
MASSIVELY getting drunkeningding
I'm even buying new wooly tights for under me jeans.
Then out in Oxford....never been, always wanted to. Anyone wish to name some nice old pubs?
Lamb and Flag across the way is meant to be good too.
I think the Eagle and Child is quite shit, but it is one to tick off for the reasons mentioned (the food's quite bad, too). The Turf is worth a look but is a bit of a tourist trap (it's the place where Bill Clinton "didn't inhale", fact fans!) and an arse to find if you don't know where it is.
The Bear down behind High Street is nice, but tiny. The White Horse on Broad Street is similarly tiny and has possibly the world's surliest barman. Avoid all of George St unless you're a subhuman who likes All Bar None and other such places. Three Goats Head is very central and across the road from a good burrito place (The Mission).
I really like Jericho for drinking in, but it's a (short) trek away from the centre. Although if you're at the Eagle and Child/Lamb and Flag (both on St Giles) you're halfway there anyway. The Jericho Tavern on Walton St is brilliant, but isn't a nice old pub. Good selection of drinks, nice interior, good music. Jude the Obscure next to it is ok, and the Victoria further up the road is quite nice too.
Most things close at 11, which is rubbish. There's a couple of pseudo-clubs in the centre, and some late opening bits down Cowley Rd, depending how far you're willing to treck and where you're staying etc.
Go to Freud in Jericho, I love it. I'm not sure if it's different on a Saturday night, I've only been in at quite times.
I'm massively sitting at this computer for the next fourteen hours listening to shoegaze.
(Might make some time around lunchtime to eat / apply for a few jobs.)
I don't know what pub I'll go to, but it'll be a pub man.
that Hendon v Sutton will be off, then taking the kids round to their Grandparents so they can all coo whilst I put up a new curtain rail for them.
Other than that, I'd quite like to do something a bit Christmassy as well. Writing cards perhaps.
I am available for funtimes.
getting a tree, putting it up, listening to Phil Spector's Christmas album, drinking wine and admiring my handiskills
probably make some more mince pies to add to the festive feeling
been so apt
to avoid some fines.
also need to begin writing a play for my OU course. I have a feeling I'm not going to be very good at this.
during the siege of leningrad.
And eating cheese & mince pies. Not together, weirdos.
We have a fire and everything.
FYI, I've never seen a dog carrying hot cocoa on there necks. And, in truth, I don't think you have either.
They were MASSIVE and loads of them were walking around with these wheeled chariots tied to them and then they had to walk around some trees. All the normal dogs looked really tiny and stupid next to them.
The big ones were COVERED in drool though.
There is this week - Rurual Alberta Advantage on Wednesday but that's no good to you.
According to my last.fm next weekend onwards is pretty quiet in terms of gigs. There's Arcade Fire on Saturday but sold out I guess.
You can meet me though, that's entertainment enough
DO YOU HEAR ME SCOUT?
I hear you :)
Have you seen Clerks?
was coming in on a snowy day to find "NO SNOWBALLING!" signs posted everywhere.
MASSIVELY might be meeting friends for some afternoon beers tomorrow. My lady friend is MASSIVELY coming
to mine on Sat evening.
MASSIVELY staying in bed on Sunday.
PS - what can I buy a girl for her birthday. Money no object/£30 budget, which ever is cheapest.
that just made me do a massive(ly) actualol
She's a lifelong vegetarian with socialist tendancies. She doesn't really like any animals. I was thinking jewellery (but not H.Samuel or the like).
They have loads of lovely bits for ladies. They have lots of really nice jewellery and gifts for everyone and its not expensive at all. You could probably get her a few different items from there for £30.
knew that I could go to Accessorize. I was hoping for A LITTLE MORE indie insight...
(thanks for the suggestion and reply though and greetings for the season to you and all your family)
someone else needs to step in.
(seasons greeting to you too and good luck!)
Just solved my 'buying presents for my sisters' problem for the next 10 years.
That first website looks exactly like my kind of thing. They have cat rings! This could be dangerous.
I basically want every single thing they sell.
Tomorrow - early lunch for a friends birthday then drinks in evening for another friends birthday.
as I feel like shit.
we closed our offices from 2pm yesturday and had free booze and food as someone was leaving.
I woke up in my office this morning. I am very embarrased, massively.
And trying to get some Christmas present ideas sorted.
Ideas so far:
We all left quite early though so I don't feel too bad.
Tonight I am massively going to pay a fucking lot of money in cash to hire the Luminaire for NYE.
Am rather hoping my rugby match tomorrow is called off
Eating cereal with the cat probably, massively.
on a lot of levels.
So I call her anything I like when I have her. Massive acatt down there shall be today's name
I will have an inferiority complex thereafter for the rest of the day, which I'll drink into oblivion after work. I grabbed a dress out of my wardrobe to wear to tonight's xmas party, and now that I've got to work and inspected it, I realise it is wholly inappropriate for a work do and completely whorish. I will also be using alcohol to solve this problem :)
so I can go shopping for a new frock and not look like a ocpmlete strumpet later. HURRAH.
Therefore you should actually make this person feel inferior to you. Laugh at their rubbish bank.
I have decided to wear it anyway, but am going on an expedition now to find something to cover up with- a wrap, or a shrug or something.
Someone get me a Berocca drip or something
Tomorrow i'm going to attempt some christmas shopping of sorts.
