Bore da ladies and gentlemen.
How are you? How was your weekend? etc
met up with some friends, then went to a cafe with one of them and read the papers, finished up in the pub. nice.
sunday: flatmate made me an impromptu fry up <3 studied a bit, went to see ps i love you who were pretty good.
uhhhh idk, 7/10? nah, maybe 6, i didn't do anything on friday night.
Theatre, Southend, sofa, each with lovely people (the last one being myself).
It just says too much, especially in the second half, when half the fun of drama is implying something and letting the acting carry the load rather than the dialogue. The central girl who tells the lie and her grandmother were both excellent, and just about made you ignore the ridiculousness of her actually believing what she says.
Keira was a tad disappointing, I don't have any particular like or dislike for her, but her accent was well dodgy (and people had told me before it was excellent), half the time it was all hard Bostonian "a"s, then it was a southern drawl, then it was a Katherine Kepburn impression. Elizabeth Moss was brilliant though, really tense and focussed. Brutus from Rome was good too, with a difficult part.
But yeah, on the whole, a bit underwhelming. Good moments in the second half (there's a bit where it goes a bit Beckett for Girls: "Shall we go outside today?" "We may go tomorrow." "We will always go tomorrow"), but it keeps going, and going, and says everything that doesn't need to be said, until it becomes hysterical, when it should just stop.
'but it keeps going, and going, and says everything that doesn't need to be said, until it becomes hysterical, when it should just stop...'
Yeah, it would be interesting if the play were re-done by Pinter or Miller with two male teachers accused of being gay. It could easily be done entirely in terse monosyllables and angry staring out of a window, and would possibly be better for it.
Friday - went to song que cafe! It was really really nice and I was stuffed. We went for a little drink after in the some place. It was a lovely date.
Saturday - went to southend with some disers. Played crazy golf (I lost), had candy floss, went on some rides, saw a crow die, went to the pub.
Sunday - went for a mexican lunch with friends from school. I had a massive mexican profiterole for pudding. I could have had another.
This week: sufjan :D
that was mental.
erm...basically, southend's premier roller coaster hit a crow in mid-flight and killed it stone dead. the crow feel to the floor, almost falling into a child's buggy, and then twitched on the floor until it died. all about five meters away from us.
*inhales with pride* ahhhh....southend.
It was so horrible.
I'm ignoring any crow/me being on said ride associations and I'm just going to think about the cheesybug's life- the one that I saved.
I'm terrified of missing trains. So much so I turn up about half an hour before them just to be on the safe side.
A quiet weekend, although that's not unusual. Watched the whole of the third series of the West Wing. (Well, I say whole, I skipped a couple, I certainly wasn't going to bother with Isaac and Ishmael).
It's really unsettling.
Friday: pub / fish and chips / BBC4 1991 marathon.
Saturday: lots of Parks and Rec (have caught up now), boyfriend made a RAINBOW cake.
Sunday: London / Bodeans / Spitalfields / Owen Pallett.
This afternoon I am getting my haircut and then I have NOTHING of importance until Friday when it is SUFJAN <3
going to Croatia last month and all the gigs I have AFTER Primavera, I can't really justify it :(
I think I need to move to London.
Friday: Laser Quest
Saturday: Date which was pretty civilized
Sunday: Went to watch football from 12 and ended up drinking til midnight with some girls who work at a tea shop. Twee as fuck. They started to eat banana cake with a pen so I left
You're everything I would like to be.
The date varies here as it's on the fourth Sunday in Lent. (Mothering Sunday)
second sunday of May, in my part of the world
but tbf, I know I don't have it in me.
that turned out to be easier than I expected
Friday: BBC4 1991-o-rama.
Saturday: amazing burger place in Oxford, got given free comics for some reasn (I'm not a comic reader), bought a signed copy of Elastica's 'Stutter' for a few quid. Mega.
Sunday: dragged to a 'vintage' fair in Farnham. Pretty terrible. Once you've seen one stall selling buttons and knitting needles, you do not need to see the other two hundred.
lAST WEEK AT WORK.
ABANDON REST OF REPLY
Fired for workplace bullying, was it?
But as of next week, I will be WINNING!
Just buying the lottery ticket isn't enough to set you up for life.
working all week til thurs, then im off to london to see the antlers. should be alright.
i hope he got paid A LOT of money for that.
However, this did not stop me going to sleep happy I the knowledge that they got together in the end. Didn't see it coming.
still looked farcical.
What's wrong with you? Honestly.
often get a good looking girl with a not so good looking guy...
cry for me
moved from outlook to lotus notes? check
access to webmail? blocked
Good weekend though.
Worked late on friday, but had a lovely curry and some drinks after that.
Lazy Saturday- only left the house to buy bacon, eggs and prosecco.
Very odd but funny Saturday night, drank too much.
Spent yesterday mostly dying and watching stuff on TV. Have come to the conclusion after tonight that I'm allergic to sunday night Dominos pizzas- seem to be fine any other night, but on a sunday, they kill me.
(the answer being 'because you're a fussy, fickle, mentally unstable substance abuser, John.')
Ended in defeat and a good soaking :(
Saturday - Not much happening, usual weekend business and a few beers over friends house.
Sunday - Abertillery Rugby Tournament, our team finished second with my boy taking home the player of the tournament award :D (so so proud) I also had Shaun Connor (ex Newport and Ospreys fly half running the line for me in one of the games I was tasked with officiating). Later in the day a horse tried to bite me :( followed by beers MOTD2 and Scrum V.
But it was a great setting at the bottom of the valley.
