Bore da, good morning!
How was your weekend? I feel knackered. Making some fresh coffee.
caught up with some friends on friday night, but the evening was soured when i had to pay £4.50 for a pint. of san miguel. in cambridge.
did a bit of work on saturday before heading into london for a delightful 24 hours with the george foreman. went to a great new bar in vauxhall(?) on saturday night and then spent sunday tramping around london. went to the german christmas fair on the southbank and had an ostrich burger and some churros. yum. waterloo (bridge) sunset followed, then home.
i hope everyone had a nice weekend.
(NB: I've never tried to buy drugs in Cambridge, but the student paper usually ran a story every term about how it was the most expensive place in the UK to buy drugs.)
If you even want to see a dealer you have to wear your matriculation robes and gather on the lawns of Trinity's Nevilles Court at midnight three days after the full moon. They then give you the reference number of a book in the Wren Library which has been hollowed out and has the stash inside. You leave the money under the bowler hat of the head porter, with the explanation: 'Thanks for the tip on the 2.17 at Newmarket, James!'
Just plodding to work, having a snigger at the queue of fat ladies waiting to meet Westshite outside of HMV in Newcastle. Handy for those ladies really, a greggs and Burger King are nearby. .
From where I work I have to walk for at least 7 minutes to get to the nearest Greggs.
Got blasted Friday - was still drunk for most of saturday. The tallest girl I've ever seen started kissing me, which looked ridiculous
Saturday - watched football on crappy streams
Sunday - Played Skyrim and got punched when walking by a takeaway by someone in a Chelsea shirt..motherf..
2. were you wearing a liverpool shirt?
Nah, I think I looked a bit poncey and he took his GLEN JOHNSON INDUCED RAGE out on me. Got a really good bruise on my arm though, I just walked away confused as it was completely out the blue and then got really angry
Saturday bought all the CDs I wanted, met an old friend for a drink, then went to meet the lady and her dad. It went pretty well, I thought. Did a bit of cursory grid iron chat, but when I discovered he used to be a massive music geek (and he spent the seventies in Detroit watching the Stooges) we clicked. I even got a high five.
so things are going well by the sounds of it. Nice.
We booked tickets for something in mid-February last week. Well, she booked them, and I really want to go, so I guess I'm committed till then.
I'm tired. I think I need to take a few days off work.
parents treated us to dinner and we drank a lot.
i just booked my train tickets for coming down to london in late january. just trying to remember how the oyster system works...
We should all organise a meat up.
Friday night we went to chimichangas in my hometown. Bf kept saying that this girl in there was Amy Childs. It wasn't. She looked nothing like her.
Saturday was spent mostly looking for a parking space in various essex locations. Spent too much money in topshop.
Sunday was relaxing, knitting, spending time with bf.
Tonight is Rough Trade Pub Quiz. fun.
I got home from work on Friday, had a few hours’ kip and then headed out to Teabag, getting in at 5.30am via two buses containing people throwing up. Then I woke up on Saturday at 2pm and dashed out to play hockey – the game being abandoned with twenty minutes to go after the opposition turned violent and started abusing one of the umpires, so went went to the pub. I got home a little tipsy and then slept for 13 hours. Last night we eventually went to see We Need To Talk About Kevin, which was excellent.
This week I’m going to see Gillian Welch on Wednesday, a comedy night on Thursday and a BUG special on Bjork videos.
I'm thinking about buying a Traktor S4. I don't have a lot of money, but I reckon its an "investment". Hmm.
made me laugh a bit like i was barking.
cute girl opposite me
Wild Beasts 7/10
The Drift 6.5/10
Explosions in the Sky 8/10
Made a massive roast, watched football, ate Ben & Jerry's. Good.
It was everything I thought it would be.
Didn't do much else. Didn't even get dressed yesterday. Keep forgetting there is no blind in the dining room. Think the family accross the road have seen my bollocks about 10 times since we moved in.
forgot about it..
Nottingham is on Thursday. You still have time to raise those horns.
Played a full album (Think it was their first one) Then a 'greatest hits' set.
I was all metalled out by the end of it.
housemates now fuming as they can't stream porn/play Battlefield 3 online
I went car shopping this weekend! As I know nothing about cars, my dad came up to visit and give me advice and stuff. (If he ever needs advice on effects pedals I can probably return the favour.) I've put down the deposit on a ford focus, which isn't particularly exciting but they seem to have a good reputation, and it drove quite nicely.
Gigged in the evening on Saturday, which was in the back room of a pub, it was fun despite not being able to hear much onstage. First time in 12 years my dad had seen me play in a band- I gave him a shoutout.
Yesterday had a girl over, we watched tv, I cooked her dinner and played guitar hero. Seen her a few times now, think things are going well. :)
What makes you say that? :'(
I went to Kurt's and met his lizard (WAHEY) and he drew me a picture.
Saturday went on a walking tour and befriended a girl who was also on it alone and she ended up coming to mine for dinner and cake and wine. Like a lady date.
Sunday got my rats, took them on a bus in my handbag.
