well, maybe a bit of woe. Don't overdo it, though.
Morning all. How are you?
pretty hot. bass is a little less, but the new sounds are pretty fucking incredible. forget the night ahead is totally sonically different.
uummmmm playing fives tonight. and i bought a new anodised steel non stick frying pan. can't wait to have eggs off it.
I am going to need new headphones soon - mine are starting to fall apart a bit.
i can't hear a fucking thing. lucky i am running the awareness app. pretty funky. http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/22/iphone-awareness-app-selectively-filters-outside-noises-into-yo/
The wire is starting to expose on my headphones
My cable is still broken
and is available on Amazon. I will give yyou the money if you promise to stop moaning about it.
The cable for my headphones? This is good.
I actually desperately need a cable to go from my laptop to my amp, though :( the last one was £30!!!!!!11 Where can I get a cheap one please?
explain what sort of cable it is, or even better what sort of amp it is, as you will probably be able to use something cheaper than you were.
I suppose this would be okay? http://www.amazon.co.uk/3-5mm-Phono-Stereo-Audio-Cable/dp/B000Q6LSVS/ref=pd_cp_ce_2 it's only 3m though
It will not give you cut glass clarity, but it works fine, and at lower volumes you'll never tell the difference.
Well it'll do until I'm on my whopping £20k.
all these posts could be pointless threads of their own!
for instance, we had a thread yesterday about people who are named after two painters.
now this thread isn't pointless anymore
The most exciting thing to come out of yesterday, was finding all the elements to my suit for a black tie event on Friday!
bad day, theo?
had vaccinations yesterday, needles dont seem to hurt as much as i remember....feels like i've been punched hard in both arms this morning though
watched bad lieutenat : port of call new orleans last night, incredible film, is there anything in film better than nicolas cage losing his shit?
having days off is wierd
I have been feeling sick since last night, I have a headache, a temperature and my body hurts.
I don't care how much of a girl I sound; I need a cuddle.
it's almost too easy.
My first sick day ever. Who gave it to who? Considering I haven't seen you in two weeks?
I don't know what to do now. I'm tired but I had to wake up to call the office, and now I can't go back to sleep.
I woke up so early, I literally don't have the energy to get out of bed.
My Sister was ill on Sunday, so I'm blaming her.
Thanks anyway :)
got a friend who has one going. By Victoria park I think.
My girlfriend gets back from travelling tomorrow which i'm very excited about!
Think i may drink some NZ wine and cook something nice tonight.
Last night i went and checked out the sound system at a new venue i'm going to be doing sound at as of next week. Was a bit worried as it uses a new digital system that i haven't used yet but seems pretty simple, so that's a relief.
and if there is anything to be *done*.
Work is pretty quiet, as iss my social life this. Feels like I'm waiting for something to happen.
*Somebody said something true but very bad about their politico boss in front of a girl who now works as a journalist
*A number of people cheated on their other halves with people they should have shagged long ago but didn't. One of these is particularly bad
*My friend quite wanted some intrigue of his own but didn;t get any, so will want to moan.
*I was really rude to one of the naughty sex people - how should I apoligise for being rude without approving of their actions?
So all really dull for everyone but a very small group of friends.
Listen you moral sewer, I just want to say how sorry I am for being needlessly unpleasant, and next time shag someone with a girlfriend, like some cheap whore, I'll keep my opinions to myself.
but what would come out of my mouth would not me quite so good. I'm not good at being contrite to people when I'm annoyed with them.
There have been moments in the past where I have desperately wanted to say something nasty to people who have been nasty/angered/annoyed me but I just can't bring myself to stoop to their levels.
Be the better person, Kitchmo.
didnt get home from work til 10.30 last night. Was going to be in early today too until Bank station decided to fuck me over, the cunts.
Last day of show hell today before i can ease up 'slightly' tomorrow and friday. Lady friend in town, wooo.
it's pretty pants working in the IT dept of a company so heavily influenced by high street confidence. means we permanently have no new money for projects. pretty gash.
I then flyered our upcoming Sleepingdog/Conquering Animal Sound show (JAG: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/126729), and got tickets for the Future Of The Left gig at the end of November.
Tonight, it's five-a-side. We have to win to maintain our position at the top of the table with three games to go. Squeaky bum time.
I woke up with a snotty throat and a headache :(
I went to Yoga last night (which was hard) and I've got Thai Boxing at lunch time. Yay.
I WILL BEAT THIS. I can't keep getting ill.
Lets go. Can you ride on roads yet?
No fucking way am I doing it :D
My bike is perfectly twee as well. Nevermind.
The next one? I can prep you.
Is your bike ready for cycling?
you mean 'the same as it was last time I saw it'
Then YES! It's ready!!
Okay...maybe. Don't get all Nazi on me though, yeah?
Don't fuck with me, bro.
So no working wheels?
You can ride my old bike....its very heavy and a little bit twee but still.
I will try not to get all Nazi.
I'll have to test it first, though :/
Going to see Red State later. I need a poo. Woe.
imagine you accent. That's how you sound.
I don't have an accent.
why are we all fucking ill?
havign said that, I'm about 50% better than yesterday. I dragged my broekn carcass of a body into the kitchen and roasted a chicken along with lots of potatoes, parsnips, glazed carrot and addly (because it was about to expire in the fridge, pak choi.) I really recommend the pak choi! Panfried in a little seame oil with garlic and various chinese spices that I could get my hands on (need to restock spices cupboard- am now out of star anise which is a blow). Gravy and bread sauce, couple of large glasses of burgundy. I do feel nourished today. And I have a carcass to make stock and soup from :D
I'm going to go to the steam room today. I was too ill for this yesterday but today I think it will totally sort me out.
and a million other typos that I'll let you guess.
Update: cannot find bikini or other swimming attire in my bag. Bollocks.
THIS DAY :''((((
Don't lick your fingers
Don't spray your hands with perfume
Wash your hands after spraying yourself with perfume.
XHeathenX offering solutions where none were requested since 1987.
would eat again*
*am eating again, right now
picking out some photos that i can use to introduce myself, shame all the ones of me at music festivals seem so woefully inappropriate
Sucks to be you guys.
Er, I have a lot of little annoying things to do to at work today? And a meeting I can't really be arsed with? WOE
What do you reckon? :D
I believe I may be able to accommodate your needs
I hope I can come
Well looking forward to it.
you guys don't need an excuse to be woeful, do you?
Had to turn on the bedroom light this morning for the first time in ages and it made me feel all Wintervally. Kicked through fallen leaves on the way to work, body remained at a sensible temperature, no one outside taunting me in their summer clothes, this is how October should be.
(without 'Wintervally', though. Sorry.)
I'm not ready for it yert
last weekend was a fucking tart, teasing me with her hotness. I still have summer frocks to wear. I'm not storing them way, i refuse to do it. I'm going to go on holiday.
has anybody ever been to Morocco?
it's pretty coo. Cheers.
OH GOD MUST WORK
I might go. Today.
You should be able to fly into Marrakesh and get a bus or taxi to take you the 3 hours or so to Essouirra.
You could be there in about 7 hours if you leave now.
Good places I've been to in Morocco:
Fez, Marrakesh, Chefchaouen (fuck that's some bad spelling), Essouirra
Dirty Shitholes which should be eradicated in my opinion:
I would be sorely tempted.
Twas a wee joke.
There's a yoga thing there I could do whilst xylo noodles around on the Hendrix trail. Hmmm. Might go next week.
great choice x
I still don't need to wear a jumper when I leave the house, let alone a jacket.
First day back in work after a long weekend of boozing and carousing.
I did feel like my head was too big for my neck to properly support when I woke up on Monday morning. But beyond that, no woe to report.
All you ill types, you all appear to do healthy things like going to the gym and excercise classes and the like and have twee conversations about eating properly and stuff, yet you all appear to be significantly more ill, more frequently than me.
I do no excercise. Smoke excessively. Drink frequently. Drink roughly 8 double espressos per day at work. Take quite a lot of drugs. Sleep very little. Have a diet which pretty much consists of take aways, bacon and oven chips. I can't remember the last time I've eaten fruit unless it's part of a dessert of some sort. And the idea of drinking water when there's lovely lovely caffeine or Irn Bru is anathema.
And have been ill twice in the last 18 months.
I think you're probably wasting your money on all that fitness malarkey.
That old cunt from the Rolling Stones wot ate all the drugs in the sixties and seventies and led to a lack of decent acid and opium in the 80's is still alive.
Even falling out a tree couldn't stop him.
5 hours sleep a night, hardly ever ate, drank/ poisoned myselfheavily on a daily basis. iw as never ill because my body never had time to be ill (I reckon). I think I'm paying now for years of being a Very Bad Girl.
Also, have just started commuting in London and I'm sure I'm now processing all of the lurgaes of South east London.
(woe is me)
but it means a trek back to where I'm staying and I might not be able to afford the train and means hanging out on my own again and that kinda sucks sometimes and I feel like fainting a lot today. Hmm, need some more good reasons to go.
(and replies below)
and it's in a shit venue, well not shit, but for the kind of thing they do it's just not the right place, and I HAVE NO FRIENDS.
I have seen them before, 2 times and they'll be back in Chorlton in no time given their track record. No idea why they always play secret gigs in my tiny little town, in the tiniest bar ever.
That I forgot to attend the recent Male Bonding gig at The Admiral in Glasgow. Not sure how this happened but the tickets are right there in my kitchen, unused, for last Thursday.
need to get some new ipod speakers as well but not sure if i can afford it right now. HMMM. i'm also being a great girlfriend and stocked up on bacon for when my boyfriend returns from a week away. BACON YEAH
Is your boyfriend Lady Gaga?
also, i never normally have any bacon cause i don't eat a lot of meat and it makes him depressed.
invited to an amazing party on Monday night, free booze and food and in this amazing old theatre that no one's been allowed in for years and years BUT it clashes with the first night of a course Iv'e been massively looking forward to. WHAT TO DO!
Non-woe: moousee bought me some cinder toffee and I bought myself a Raspberry Ruffle <3 Sugar rush time!
I made some of their cinder toffee a few weeks ago. My teeth are somewhat worse for it.
Last Bonfire night we went to see The Walkmen in an old church and the old ladies running the bar made loads of cinder toffee and were giving it away. Amazing night!
want to throttle the majority of people i work with now.
