Bored. Y'up to much?
listening to some old LateNightTales compilations now.
I hope it goes well!
in a really good mood actually. had a great day (bar annoying course guy), got booze, got pizzer, chillin' out in my slacks, gonna watch some footi, put some tins away and fall asleep on the settee.
Might go to the cinema but there's not a whole lot on I want to see. Maybe The Perks of Being a Wallflower or Ginger and Rosa. Can anyone recommend either?
it was entertaining and not nearly as achingly twee as I expected.
Girl who sits next to me at work said today it was really good and quite fun.
I heard Ginger and Rosa described as 'grim', so not exactly fun.
Though I suspect I won't end up going to either. I'll probably just sit on the sofa. Might put a dvd on.
Going to have a few cans and watch a film or something - in the mood for something terrifying.
Need to catch up on my Coursera course first though - got a couple of video lectures to watch tonight on mitosis, meiosis and ploidy (it's a course on elementary genetics).
gonna call my mum
And say hi too.
and she hadn't heard of you idiots
so let's drop it
I'm feeling very ill. Someone from Gumtree just took my lovely dining chairs :( Gave me 20 big ones though which I'm now going to use to order some food. What shall I get?
Or your bed?
Flu-ey illness. Coughing a lot and my head is killing. Good idea. What curry shall I get?
and something like chana masalla with it to add a bit of interest.
I'll let you know how it goes. If it's anything less than exquisitely delicious then so help me god...
I need some curry, mild curry since the non smoking taste buds have appeared. I'm in bed and it's only gone midnight and I'm sober and I have no male company. What is happening? feels quite good! I might watch a film, or something. I've made a peanut butter sandwich. Oh, I've just checked my personal mobile and I have so may texts from old manc mates asking which pub I'm in. I want to be in manc now :(
I think I'm just about done with London.
Get a curry. It'll help if you've got a cold.
Whereabouts will you be based when you move, somewhere in London or will you be commuting in?
Quite looking forward to reading books and listening to music on the train though. And despite the exorbitant train fairs I should save quite a lot of macaroni.
I commuted from Hampshire for a few months when I first got a job in London. The rail fare was something like £330 a month, but living at home meant that was practically my only expense, so I was able to save quite a lot.
Yeah I can't wait for not having to buy food and household products. Might even get mum to make me a packed lunch. My only expenses will be train and entertainment.
Don't forget Daddy Donkey Fridays with your Farringdon buddies!
to Daddy Donkey Friday?
El's first day in Farringdon is on Monday, mine's the Monday after. Brusma and jonny_rat work there too so we're going to get together for burritos. I'm sure you'd be welcome too!
A Wizard, A True Star and playing Final Fantasy VII. Going to the pub with my housemate to meet his strangely cool uncle in about 15 minutes.
of life haha
hopefully all weekend alcohol free
but feel absolutely wrecked after the week so staying in. Probably just read some more then go to sleep about 9. r&r
Was gonna go to the cinema but I'm well fucking tired so not gonna bother.
would be more precise
Gonna go get myself an S3 tomorrow
keep me posted. daily. you gonna go on contract, or buy it straight out?
I'd voided the warranty and my service provider weren't gonna help me out. Thought this exchange place would tell me to get to fuck too. This is a wonderful moment for me.
Everything's coming up Milhouse.
Meeting a few people in Dublin tomorrow, should be lovely.
I'm totally broke and have a gig tomorrow in chiswick, you should all come down!
I've never been to Chiswick. I hear it's nice.
Neer been either, hopefully I have a good time
Got a few friends who live in Hounslow which is pretty local... might pop down.
Go to Outsider Tart and get some ridiculously good cake.
Good job I live at home
But it might not be wise for me to go, and so if I don't go, I will come west to you. And I will bring women.
looked at a house but it was a bit shit so I won't move there
I'm staying in and feeling a bit ill.
Tomorrow I am going to buy a new suit. And then maybe watch Anchorman for the hell of it.
http://www.cadandthedandy.co.uk/ get one of these bad boys.
having a few tins and going to play games. Good times.
Feeling a lot more content with things. Not happy, just happy to let life drift by.
Work is looking up which is ace. Really looking forward to going back to Bath in a couple of weeks as well.
poker and chess. I'm going to join hackney chess club. They have blitz in the Rochester every Saturday, really good fun :) played their last week before i did the door. Got slaughtered, but really good.
I haven't played any games in ages. I'd quite like to play Cluedo or Scrabble or something.
Sorting out some stuff for the radio show, got some live music and doing a jukebox jury style thing with the guy who's coming in so just sorting out some tracks for that and some other stuff.
Want to get to bed reasonably early as I have a scan on my gallbladder tomorrow to prepare for the op and also tomorrow night is the John Carpenter all-nighter in that London where there'll be much bubblegum chewing and ass kicking. Been excited about it for months.
but I've definitely have passed out by the time his best films came on. Not for a light weight like me.
a pre-cinema snooze in the afternoon. That and lots of caffeine through the night.
but I'm shattered.
Early start tomorrow morning, so I'll just potter around on here for an hour or so and then go to bed, I think.
was going to go to that, too. Would have been amazeballs.
hope you don't say it out loud. to people and stuff.
just don't like this side to you, is all
I've been to gigs last night and the night before, and I've got ones tomorrow night and Monday.
I used to be able to do this, but I think I'm getting old.
cold, raining, not much on TV
and now I have to decide which ones to take back and I hate doing that :-(
I need to go study, but I'm too tired :-(
What can I do that's productive, but that doesn't require as much concentration as studying? My room is already tidy, so that's no good.
Don't have the money
Don't have anyone to bake for
sowing buttons back on stuff they've fallen off?
Or buttons that need sewing
I have glue? I could glue something....
sole coming lose from a shoe or anything like that?
good grief what's wrong with me
you're on a role, for shure
Bought two dresses, taking one back tomorrow.
Maybe make something? Bake something? I feel like doing a spot of baking, but my kitchen is a state so I'd need to tidy up first, and I'm not in the mood.
I need to take back at least two...
That sounds weird.
And I can't anyhow cause there's no wifi.
hope you're well.
Learn some basics of a language, or go on sporcle. always a laugh
btw amazeballs was just a one-off, not one for that shit.
How are you anyway dude? Thanks for your comment the other week btw when i was in a bad way, really appreciated it.
as I say. you a good cat. come to my crazy London meet on the weekend of the 17th November. say no, if you like.
I would be interested in that.
nah, got a few good people interested. i'll keep ya posted, man
looking forward to it
is not a good idea. I can get away with not studying Japanese so long as I'm not studying anything else.
Uni is good though. I haven't met ANYONE EVEN ONCE outside of classes in the month that I've been here though. Maybe I should go make a friend or something. That's productive. Okay, give me tips on how I can make a friend tonight (by 10.30pm, I want to go to bed early cause there's qualifying tomorrow morning).
my mate did japanese and mandarin at cambridge and was basically wrapped in that. That's crazy stuff.
How to make a friend? You could knock on your neighbour's door and have a chat, wander down to the pub with people. Otherwise you could just play some party music in your room and ALL the people will come and be like omg this is great and rock out and stuff.
i just wanna go out or something. talk to people.
aaah, forget it
Never get this bored of their finale from their show in Rome in 1980:
Crosseyed and Painless is so good.
draco's all ginger
i bought a peanut lion bar earlier so i might have that. and a glass of orangina cause i'm not gonna drink. at least until i recover a bit.
barely even qualifies as entertainment.
shit is weak. powerful weak
Got three lots of palmiers in the oven now. Tomato and basil, cheese and tomato, and nutella.
Should really learn how to do a bit of baking. I can cook pretty well, but I just never bother with desserts or making my own bread. What's a good place to start?
The cheese aren't so great, they leaked a lot. I think I need to change the pastry:cheese ratio. Taste pretty good though. I only made a couple of nutella ones as a test. Not bad, but tasted too obviously of nutella - in future I'll use proper chocolate.
Maybe start with pizza dough? It's pretty simple and uses the same main techniques you could then use for more complicated things.
Or you could make a simple sponge cake - all you need is 100g flour, 100g sugar, 100g butter, two eggs. If you cook it with a layer of syrup on the bottom you can turn it upside down when it's cooked and voila - syrup sponge pudding.
to properly kick off. Should be tucked up in the sleep-in room. At least I have a wagon wheel and some discos
When we went to the sports centre during school PE lessons, I always used to get them after the lesson from the vending machine. They were always so circular. Lovely.
The most vinegary of all the crisps. Excellent.
Then brushed his armpit hair with my hairbrush :(
what a rat-bag
gotta type up a couple reviews. all in good time.
I think this sandwich I ate yesterday didn't settle right or something so I've been in bed all day. So I'll be in bed catching up on various TV shows. Stomachaches are the worst :(
I had one all week from last Saturday until yesterday. Pretty pleased it's gone, was starting to get a bit worried.
Glad yours is gone, though!
It's really really really really nice
then went to tgi friday, so full
going to bed now cos i got work tomoz (missing the spurs game which i'm pissed off about)
I went to get some nice beers after work and a fire alarm started going off in Asda JUST AS I GOT IN THE DOOR and everyone had to leave. ffs.
