how was your weekend?
got much planned for the week ahead?
is £105 too much to spend on a pair of shoes?
friday - sheffield, saw killing joke
saturday - wrote music, saw friends
sunday - watched football. great results
12 hour day at work today, no skin off me nose tho cos JEFF MAGNUM tomorrow
not seen em in years
they just keep getting better.
I imagine they must have lost some of their 'edge', their 'dangerousness'
they've definitely not lost their edge though!
...excited. Did you catch any of The Icarus Line supporting?
really enjoyed them, crowd didn't get into them at all though :(
Rest assured, I shall be getting into them on Friday...
I want to stab myself in the eye with the pencil I'm chewing on.
Had some lamb that actually melted in your mouth. Mmm. I'm so hungry again though, as I always am the day after a curry. Are you feeling a little bit better? :D
got home and my flatmate had cooked some pasta with melted stilton, feta cheese and a salad. Loved it.
Just about. At about 9 i started to fall asleep on the sofa and had the best sleep ever. Sorry I didn't stay for longer, just felt like I was going to faceplant the table.
I nearly put my head on the table at the restaurant at one point so I know how you were feeling (apart from my saturday drinking having started at 5pm, not noon, of course. you pair of massive jakes.)
friday - had a female asian Dr put her finger in my bum, then played Mass Effect 3 all evening
saturday - kusama at the tate, dinner & drinks at mien tay and bridge cafe, then back to a ladies to shake my bon bon
sunday - bon bon shaking, mass effect 3 to finish
hope your arse is ok.
didn't solve the issue mind
hope they dont have to give you the snakelight :(
(I get 10% off)
Nothing you can't get down Brantano for £17.33 mind.
yes, £15 is a lot to spend on them.
Could I be the new bamnan????
TYPE - volvo v50 (or similar)
or nasty pain inducing embarassment?
I am CUT and BRUISED.
(would like all of the sympathy please)
when, was thuis saturday? Did I miss it?
I think I was still half asleep.
£105 isnt too much if you have the money! Buy the shoes. I moved back to my grandparents yesterday, its so weird. Like walking into another world. No phone signal. No internet. Also, the people who catch the bus from here are numpties.
except you've traveled back in time to the late 80's instead of the 40's during the war.
but yeah, its exactly like that. Gonna get my amiga 600 out and start listening to hair metal
My gf had her birthday party on Saturday, went out for dim sum then cocktails, it was all lovely, though I spent far too much. Yesterday I nursed her hangover and we sat in a lovely sunny park reading the paper. Bliss.
Jeff Mangum on Wednesday, then another birthday dinner on Thursday, both of which should be ace.
I can't imagine ever spending that much on shoes.
Was so nice strolling about in the sun, then just lying in the park without needing a coat. More of this sort of thing, please.
there must be some science behind it. Just feel so much more alive.
it makes you feel so much better (apart from my itchy hayfever eyes which have started ALREADY.)
V annoying! We only walked to the shop yesterday. Moody bum was moaning.
You were not with us.
Also- I need to have a shower. I'm waiting for a delivery. How do I solve this?
If buzzer buzzes, hop out of shower and answer doort in your towel. I'm sure delivery people have seen it all before. You can also almost guarantee that as soon as you start lathering up your hair with shampoo, the buzzer will go.
NO RUDDY BUZZER. I've left my number on the door. Best idea ever?
I'm tempted to do it just to hurry them along.
I have cleaned. Polished. Hoovered. Mopped.
Could have had 5 showers.
Find me a job? Find you a job! Find us all a job!
Her flatmate doesn't understand why H could possibly want to see me for more than one evening a week (I'm incredulous myself, but I go with it), and feels neglected, even though she's a passive aggressive nut job who goes days without speaking to anyone. OH WELL.
She also sounds like she'd fit in here perfectly well, you could try introducing her to CiC.
Had first night in my new place last night. Had a bad dream in the middle of the night. Got up, had a little cry. couldn't get back to sleep. Waaah. Can't stop thinking about the bad dream. i might go for a smoke.
i had a well weird dream last night. hate it when dreams plague you in the day
It'll be the anxiety/weird newness of it all. I get like this, too. You can always call me if you feel a bit rubs. Tonight will be my first night sleeping here...
Yeah, it was a weird lucid dream and I was absolutely convinced that somebody in a mask was in the room with me, tasering me. i thought I was awake but I couldn't move my arms or sit up. Really odd and I was so frightened and in floods of tears when I woke up. It's so unlike me and I feel so silly now.
I'M NOT MEANT TO BE ALONE IN THIS LIFE.
First time I had one it freaked the fuck out of me.
Sounds like a case of Sleep Paralysis.
Terrifying at first, but now it's happened once, you'll know when it's coming on again.
That makes me feel better. I felt like I was vbeing choked or suffocated too and was worried I was having a fucking panic attack or something. I was so sure I was awake through it all, but then I 'woke up'. Weirdest thign ever, I'm going to look up what causes it because I don't want it to happen again. cheers, both rob and mick :)
I don't know if what I've experienced is sleep paralysis as such, but I also had a masked intruder in my bedroom with a knife, and he was clearly going to attack my wife sleeping next to me. Worst part was that he was mocking my inability to move/scream out in warning to my wife. Fucking awful.
I've had variations on if a few times, but overall I wouldn't say it's happened to me amassive number of times, and I haven't had one for a year or more now.
I've made a few threads about it here. It mostly only happens when you're very tired, like after lots of partying etc, and when you're on your back.
You can't do anything to stop it, apart form not sleeping on your back, and it gets worse and more frequent as you get older. Of course, some people are lucky and have it only once in their lives and avoid it getting progressively worse. Lucky buggers.
There's not much you can read up on it except other people's experiences as no one really knows anything about sleep or dreams.
It's where the word nightmare comes from though, a mare who comes in the night and pins you down. Think it's also called something like old hag syndrome cos some people see a witch sitting on them. I'd never had anything as literal as that until recently when I had a dead woman lying on me, I could feel her hair brushing against my face, oh God. Of course, you can also have just plain old SP rather than hallucinogenic SP, which is still bad but definitely preferrable to HSP. HSP probably explains a lot of ghost sightings etc I think.
i used to have it when i was younger. get having a recurring dream where i picked up the phone and a girl was screaming down it. used to wake up and be unable to move for the first few seconds.
Thought I'd woken up in the middle of the night, felt like a giant rat or something was sitting on my chest hissing into my face. Couldn't move, couldn't scream, just had to lie there with this imagined thing on me. Didn't know I was still asleep either.
Still get them on occasion, but can now wake myself up, albeit with a bit of shouting and swinging for whatever it was that threatened me in the asleep/notasleep bit.
Some reports read that various factors increase the likelihood of both paralysis and hallucinations. These include:
Sleeping in a face upwards or supine position- tick box
Increased stress- tick box
Sudden environmental or lifestyle changes- tick box
A lucid dream that immediately precedes the episode- leave box blank
Excessive consumption of alcohol coupled with lack of adequate sleep- massive tick box
I need ot get more sleep and get more settled in my new place and try to de-stree my poor wee head, I think.
thanks everyone- I feel less freaked out now. x
i don't like calling you 'lulu' due to the horrible metallicca/lou reed album, so i'm going to call you 'the black album' instead.
* Master of Puppets
I think I'm still a bit concussed because when my boss asked me if I want to go home I said no.
going to Lisbon on Thursday for 3 nights. GADOOSH! *flexes muscles*
go to bacalhoeiro for super cheap delicious food and really really good interesting selection of bands! and also catacombas and casa dos loucos in bairro alto for blues. oo. im so jealous.
Can't tell if it's the herculean amount myself and Verbal drank on Saturday, or the painful lump in my head left by Royter's chin
I realised I had no memory of it, and that therefore it was probably hometime.
Well, I heartily recommend this half pint of gin
Rum and Coke? Sure here's a cup of rum with a hint of coke colouring.
I mean, I know, mojitos are supposed to have lots of ice, but this was almost exc,lusively ice, and a massive clump of it. Yuck. Serves me right for having a completely poofy drink in the first place.
The barmaid was trying to figure out what a 'Mojoti' was and guessed.
My memory mainly extends to buying a massive bottle of smirnoff ice and walking home
think you went to say goodbye, went for a hug, slipped and fell on her. Hence I was shouting this at you for a while: https://www.facebook.com/robert.donnellan/posts/749106083611
Everything was fine though.
Ps. pub quiz tonight if you fancy it?
I'm going to bed at 6:30 tonight so am going to have to pass
and then singing the fields of athenrye at you, mildly concussed. It's all a bit blurry. Something something broken glass, falling off a worktop, richy managing to get me into a taxi.
My head seems fine today though :)
I assure you I am usually an upstanding gentleman
so it's still fine according to the abridged gentleman's code (pocket edition).
went to a car boot.
bought 10 busts. an old saftey razor. microphone. hip flask. 2 projectors. stickers. loads of junk.
now about to go and do a big jizz all over maida vale.
(I wont get to play on it for quite a while)
Friday night watched the latest american office (we are bang up to date on this, its the one after the episodes where a task force goes to florida to set up opening sabre stores)
Then We watched Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, then we watched Ginger Snaps.
Oh and we ate crisps and drank beer, Friday was definately the highlight.
yes that is far to much to spend on shoes (specially for a man)
^That was in my autofill. Hmm.
Friday: Finished work a bit early and went out for food and drink in Bristol. Fell asleep on the train home listening to the new Dirty Three album (quite good).
Saturday: Got my hair cut, got depressed at football, did some work.
Sunday: Did some more work. Tried and failed to remember the last day I did no work at all. Got a bit miserable when I thought about that so played Final Fantasy VII and listened to the Walls album (which is really good) for the evening.
Work should be a bit more relaxed this week. Also saw a friend I haven't seen in ages today, which was nice.
I'd love that for lunch. Some days I just want to walk into a restaurant and order the cheeseboard for lunch.
But something stronger than scamp.
or is that too strong?
Friday - saw a Friend for a quick drink and then home.
Saturday - Helped Miss PO move flat, out trousered (as in had a better pair of trousers on) someone on Saturday night (I have a vague recollection of it either being Royter or Verbal) not to mention danced a ridiculous amount of time until my feet hurt and had my first experience of Gin rage when a girl spilt her beer all over my jacket. Gin = Bad!
Sunday - Went for a lone fry up at a local Caff. Never done that before, it was like going to a movie alone, but with eggs. Then met up with some very hungover people for a drink and a curry.
All round brilliant weekend!
hopefully next time I won't be either a) unbelievably hooned, or b) monstrously hungover.
Wasn't me who you bested in the trouser dept. btw
Must have been Royter then. They were trousers no one could beat!
Also: What does 'Hooned' mean?
hooned just means very drunk.
Ahh yes, another one for the ol' foreign dictionary!
only downer was on Saturday night, I think I saw this girl I was with get her phone taken. The guy who I think did it disappeared outside and when I went to go find him, had completely gone. Bit annoying
Gigged near Manchester on Friday, always love playing out of town gigs even if the drive is a pain in the arse. Cleanest stage ever too- I think it had been mopped recently. Hung around for the rest of the club night as well and met a nice girl. Drove back with a massive grin on my face. :D
Saturday spent recovering from Friday, had a friend over for a catch up and ate viennese whirls and watched a dvd. Then made a puppet for a music video. Still not sure what to use for eyes- apparently plastic spoons aren't bad. Going to go looking for some 'hair' this lunchtime.
Had another gig last night, played quite well though the stage there is very small and means there's a high risk of crashing guitars into each other.
Absolutely dead today, got practice with my side project tonight, normal band prac tomorrow, Weds gym night, Thursday gigging. Might take Friday off!
Should I dye my hair? Will he come as soon as I do? Probably.
I couldn't be bothered to rephrase it.
Still no mattress.
The Daily Mirror has given readers an anagram puzzle on its front page today: "Piers Morgan Uncut."
good luck chinny x
Interview > Mattress
Can you now bring it to my office so I can have a disconap, thanks, botch :)
I cannot tell you how happy I am.
My sheets are drying on the line. Massively living the dream.
I'm unpacking clothes and cooking a late supper for Fleur (you are v welcome- I might just make pancakes since I'm still cross about missing pancake day) whilst panicking about what to wear tomorrow night etc etc etc. You need to come and see the new flat!
So tired I am close to coma.
Let me know your schedule tomorrow so I can try to fit the other stuff around it.
the gig finishes between 10 and 11. don't rush about for me x
stop out all night?
Fuck them. I can't be bothered to two and from with my emails on this phone anyway.
Sounds good. I am Ian. Massively strict diet, so I'm good for food!!
I am Hamish.
I took delivery of a cracking mattress earlier this year. Memory foam.
Nothing's topped it so far.
Memory foam mattresses are so good, I doubt you'#d need a topper for them.
And with that, i need oto go and do some work. bye.
I avoid all memory foam because I can't think of anything worse! I have some fancy pants orthopaedic one.
Still a corker of a mattress.
I can't afford fancy orthopaedic mattresses though. You win.
Good old Mum.
then to Pixies Disco.
Saturday I got a free ticket to POTUSA. Woo!
Sunday I went to moousee's to watch films.
were they good? did you have a nice birthday?
birthday was ok but none of my friends came out so it was just me and my housemate and I felt a bit lonely but still it was fun. Especially dancing at Pixies night, that's always great!
