What are you up to?
I've got partial tonsillitis so I doubt I will do very much (good excuse). Kinda waiting on a text
I'm getting my haircut at lunchtime. First proper haircut in almost a year. My hair is absolutely minging.
Looking at academic courses n that.
It's damp and rainy in the north east.
It's raining here too, I shaved all my hair off a few weeks ago it was strangely liberating considering I had been growing it continuously for around 3 years!
I'm really scared :(
Being unemployed in kind of great though, think of all the hobbies and stuff you can do that would never et a chance to otherwise!
It has been good. Ive written a good chunk of my book. Played lots of piano too. Im quite lonely though and if it wasnt for the fact that my puppy is obsessed with me and follows me everywhere (i call her shadow) then i think i might be a bit sad. I have lots planned though manchester this weekend. Job interview monday. London on weds for a week, then south america in april. I should stop being a moany cow really.
I 'm sorry , i know i owe you an email. I havent known where to start! Will do so now xxx
Just I don't think a lot of external factors affect your internal contentment sometimes
ran a club night last night, it went pretty well! it was at the Art College and there must have been an opening or a party or something elsewhere on site as a horde of drunk people descended at about 1am. made back the cost of the venue and a little extra.
also a drunk man heckled my DJing for about twenty minutes and then kept asking me to play "The Fall, but a Peel Session track". Hero (prick).
ALSO we played AM180 by Grandaddy as the last song and this couple went mental and we found out afterwards that it had been the first dance at their wedding, which was a lovely way to end the night on.
who is the text from? IS IT A GIRL?
Sounds pretty cool. At least your heckler wasn't asking for blur and Oasis
it's a bit thin a concept for a monthly night, i think it works better as an occasional
we're starting another night at Pivo though, first one is April 11th, where I'm basically gonna play the same stuff but with Kanye West mixed in
Pivo is up by the St James Centre, it's a little dive-y Czech-themed place, some new management have taken it over recently and are trying to hipster it up, make it like Bloc in Glasgow basically.
the grandaddy moment was the best.
And v sorry i missed it but i ended up out west last night. Next time!
Nah the text is from my band, I'm trying to build bridges after smashing my guitar to pieces and starting a fit at our last gig.
I've gone into one of my manic phases, so who knows
then I've got a day in the pub watching the rugby and being social.
Tomorrow I'm going to apply for a job, go for coffee with my friend and try and record some demos for my band. Might start the drummer hunt as well as we need to replace our drummer. Anyone know any london based drummers?
which was nice.
Off out to the pub in half hour for carvery lunch, carvery dinner, loads of Guinness and 3 rugby matches. Amazing scenes for a Saturday.
Sun kil moon - among the leaves might be the best album ever made
So I'm going to his for a big night out. Might suck him off if he's lucky. <3
got a letter through today saying my contract at work had been extended for six months 'further to recent discussions'. hadn't even discussed it, presumed i was leaving at the end of march.
Just having a darwindude day/ weekend ie just staying in and doing housework then reading game of thrones :)
theatre tonight. proper culture n that.
i need to get motivation to get ready and get on a train. going to have drinks in that there london. cocktails and girly stuff i think. im being purposefully late so i dont have to sit on the train with my friends so that instead i can listen to music and chill for a bit.
going to see Stoker later.
Doing nothing today
Doing nothing tomorrow
Back at work 6am Monday
Anyone want a clothes rail, some iron-footed stools and a single mattress?
Tonight do the first bit of freelance work for a company in NY and I'm excited and terrified of fucking it up all at once. Tomorrow is the day we finish the album. Oooooh.
has anyone seen Side Effects? might go watch that later
going to go into town and buy loads of albums that I've been meaning to for ages. need some lunch to happen first though
big car crash just happened right outside my flat
I passed a car crash on a motorway once and it wasn't pretty.
it was weird, just heard that cartoon eeeeeeeeeeeee.... BANG noise.
everyone has piled out the shops for a bit of rubber-necking
Have a good bit planned for London next week and looking forward to it.
And smells like coconut. I love you, Carla the hairdresser x
What a bloke lol
He didn't seem to notice the 2 hour lunch break I took to get it done.
I got new hair last week. It is nearly white and im pretending my name is Inge.
One of my flatmate's boyfriends is coming over and my other flatmate just said she was planning on being out the whole night. Flatmate A just responded "good" with the least subtle wink in the world.
Tonight I'm going to have to listen to my flatmate fucking.
Or have a really noisy wank to put them off. Imagine you're trying to strangle a really angry swan.
And I'm not going out in rainy Edinburgh on Saturday night by myself. 'specially as I'm going out tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day.
So option B it is.
why did they bother remaking a film that only came out 10 years ago?
Fucking dickhead mate didnt answer his door when I went round for the rugby. Wandered around in the drizzle getting home. Drinking a beer and playing FM13
I mean how difficult is it really
It was a last minute thing. I just want to feel victimised.
Gonna go in one evening after my other work [office, days, temp til May] and ask if I can have a few weeks off unpaid until I finish the other job as it's wrecking me. Maybe even just drop it to the Friday night, so I still have Saturday and Sunday to recover.
Gonna have a couple of beers then catch up on some much needed dreamy sleepy nighty snoozey snooze.
Then realised I had nothing for my dinner. Had to make a detour to go to another store on my way back from the football, in case I got spotted in my Wolves shirt, etc after telling them I was in bed, being sick a few hours earlier. Not entirely sure the store manager knows who I am ( being nights and that - I certainly have no idea who he is), but didn't want to risk it.
Cycled to Brighton today in that bloody rain. Got so wet and cold. Went through some lovely countryside; proper hills, proper badger roadkill, proper steam engines, proper union jacks outside roadside cafés.
Had some incredibly bargainous 31p corn flakes with blueberries and two types of grape. Two types!
Watched footy focus and the gp quali.
Swam. In a swimming pool I'd not swam in before.
Went to Morrisons, where they were playing DJ Shadow. Read a magazine half way around and forgot to buy two birthday cards.
Had a mezze type tea.
Made some salt, pepper and chilli Kale crisps.
Having a hot chocolate.
