we've had someone (ok, a friend) to stay for 6 days. we've fed him every single day. he gave us £2 for his entire bed and board.
we've been mugged, haven't we? ffs.
what makes it worse is that the two of us are poor. he is not. ergh.
will probably watch the new futurama. and eat some leftover brownies that my flatmate brought home from work. yeah :D
Did he ask for a bill?
though i guess i'd chip in with the shopping and stuff
I'd never charge a friend to stay, but I'd expect them to make an effort and pay their way with good deeds and dinners and stuff.
but I'd definitely buy food and cook, not just sponge off people.
like he never offered to do the washing up, or cook us a meal, or anything. idk, when i've stayed with people in the past i've always washed up/cooked a meal, and got them a little something at the end, or bought them a drink. idk. i'm nitpicking.
got a fair few free dinners during that period :)
Friend is taking the piss by the way :/
i'm in edinburgh. it's raining.
got stranded in a local bar waiting for my mum to pick me up. Ended up bumping into old friends and they filled me full of this and various other shots. Best Christmas Eve ive had in years.
That Car Bomb was horrible though! tasted like shoe
I mean people mention the whiskey by name even, as if that lends some gravitas to the concoction, you might as well go down to aldi and buy some monstrous amalgamation like tabard or somesuch.
I was recording an album. It isan't even 1/4 done, didn't realise how hard recording was.
Met two DISers last night at my gig, I won't embarrass them and say who they were, but they were both lovely.
Now going to watch either True Grit or X-Men First Class and make fajitas but without the tortillas.
Were you at Notting Hill tube this morning, carrying what I presume were musical instruments down the escalator with a young man?
Yes, I was in a hung-over, in a bad mood and was muttering obscenities at tourists.
Were you going up or down?
I was on my way to Portsmouth. Great times.
What was your reason?
from the Cadbury factory outlet store. That and an awful game of football.
How's the head?
I wasn't that drunk to be honest, good night though. Haven't danced like that in a loongg time.
How are you?
I didn't think I was but...yeah...
Glad you had fun, it'll be your local 'pub, bar, club transmogrification' soon!
Me and michael_w contemplated an impulsive ''hurricane tour'' to the Big Smoke....but realised that -5p wasn't going to stretch that far.
Instead, I'm sitting on here and thinking how great it could have been...
Had resolved not to drink but gonna have a couple of ales to numb the misery slightly. Go me! Currently watching probably my 10th episode of Dexter of the day. Cursing moving back to my parents' house. Really cursing that.
It'll be right though, will just MTFU and get on with it. HURGH!
PM me if you need to talk.
I'm in the mood to go out, but I don't know anyone doing anything and going dancing alone never goes well. Might stick a DVD on.
Just had a rubbish supermarket curry. Wish I'd splashed out for a proper takeaway.
if i squint i can pretend i'm in a bar in america.
that's a role reversal.
Louie steps out of the Telepod...he has no girlfriend, no social decorum, no hope............and that, viewers, is where the story begins.
He's mine and michael's mutual friend....we've been together since we were toddlers.
Going to head out now for food and then to meet friends at the launch of a new night in islington. I have new hair! (I was nearly sick in the hairdressers though, sadface)
I thought after two nights on the lash and 9 hours recording I would be gagging for a night in, but I've watched all the recent Come Dine With Me on 4oD and I want to dance.
If you're still up for it, albert and pearl in islington. On till 4 :)
i woke in pretty bad form as i was up all night not feeling too good. Then my bf was out till 7am or so, so i shoved him in the spare bedroom so i didnt have to deal with drunken snoring.
Got up and felt shit, had a little cry because im due! (yeah yeah yeah) and emotional, shouting about having no clothes and always being skint.
I've been sitting in the livingroom for a few hours and noticed a letter sitting addressed to me from the bank...
I GOT MY PPI COMPENSATION!! :D a bad day just got good :D
and now I feel really shit. Hopefully it will be over soon.
My dads gf made dinner, but didn't bother putting on a plate for me, on the table :( bitch
I'm debating whether or not to watch Mullholland Drive. I'm not sure how up I am for it. Other than that I'm just listening to music and having a couple of beers.
I remember thinking it was incredibly baffling/weird, but that there was something really special about it. Been meaning to see it again since. Will probably watch it tomorrow instead since it's pretty late now.
cool game. you can see the influence it had on mass effect.
said i wasn't going to drink but somehow i've almost finished a bottle of Red. Damn. Enjoyable nonetheless.
Also watched some Stewart Lee and now listening to Broken Social Scene. Bored.
