I'm watching LA Confidential. Lets all ask each other questions.
Will he be one of the true greats?
Also hi. I just made crepes
I liked him in Shutter Island though, most recently in Quento Tazzers do, he was really good. Over all I'd say that he's worth his star status for sure.
How are you?
I'm drinking a BEER. What have you been doing today?
To the city farm and saw lots of animal bairns, then I came home, watched TV and job hunted for a bit. I've just spent three past 3 hours making cottage pie and now I'm going to have a shower and put clean sheets on the bed. My life is well exiting.
Anything I think I could be capable of. Shop work, museum work, admin, and general stuff. I don't care if my first job there is shit, I'm just desperate not to be unemployed.
I'm not SRSLY looking yet because we don't know exactly when we're moving. I'm trying to see how much and what sort of work is available.
Google isn't being very helpful.
I'll bookmark it for later .
To have another shower.
How many showers you had today?
I did not need to wash my hair
Sometimes I'll shower before I've done my hair and make up but sometimes I'll shower after I've done my hair and make up. Weird, huh?
I don't think. Never thought about it that much.
Cause I have bra straps that harbour grime
I'm good. Just on my way home from visiting my parents.
When you're waiting for a train, do you ever sit on the seats or do you stand?
Sometimes though, I like to walk up and down the platform. When I do that I wish that I had a pocket watch that I could look at and sigh. Have you seen LA Confidential?
What happens in it?
I'm watching it for the first time. Its DEAD good, you should watch it.
But then I realise im doing it and get scared people think I'm a weirdo.
Just came back from a friend's house. Was nice to see him. Lay in my room now just feeling a bit glum.
If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
2. To spend a day in a room with about 20 kittens
3. Good health for everyone I know, including me
a load of money and a mountain of blow.
Also first day off in about eleven days. Doing a job application for the Southbank Centre. It looks fun.
Last day of work tomorrow for a trip away with my mates over the weekend, should be class. Also been really ill for around 8/9 days, and today was the first day I felt normal again, so fingers crossed that's done with now.
I like it when I stumble across band name origins by myself.
Been up to much?
I may go to bed soon though.
Are you coming to Dulcimer tomorrow night? Was gonna ask MBG & JF & JB if they wanted to come for tea at mine first, if you wanna come too?
And last night. My dad can tell I'm a bit grumpy (I'm actually not really. I'm quite happy thanks, I'm just ANNOYED at him, and my mum, for being annoying.) He's a total windup merchant and he keeps calling me a name from my childhood which he knows winds me up and which makes me want to up-end the coffee table and throw his notary stamp (heavy stampy lawyer thing) out of his favourite window, that kind of stuff you know, stuff I've not done for about 24 months. I'm yoga breathing so hard through it. I AM POISED AND SERENE.
and I felt like saying 'put the brush back you stupid fucking cunt'
IN YOUR HEAD. While pursing your lips into a princess Diana smile/ pug head tilt.
Also, how dare that fucking prick steal your fucking brush? Cunt.
How are things? Me and the other LM-Doll are planning a Manchester visit for sometime in May or June so do let us know if there are any weekends which are not particularly good. (she has already vetoed porto weekend, which is fine because I am having an arrested development weekend on that one anyway.)I get back from my holiday on something like 15h may.
If we go to mojos I'm now MADE to dance on the bar or else they're going to make me pay my bar tab from the last 5 years. Which is... quite big. but if I do dance, I'm allowed to keep adding to it. So, mojos?
I just booked my trip to York for the May bank holiday weekend, in a state of giddy excitement right now. Currently just listing all the bars we're going to go in a fit of nostalgia. Also going to Leeds next weekend actually.
And Alan Partridge is on. What an evening.
Anyone going anywhere nice anytime soon?
Today I saw amazing people doing brilliant and bizzare things. And I bought some goodies from lush. The lady at the till said 'hope you enjoy your lovely things' and I also ate macaroons.
It's a great place. Home tomorrow.
was a friend's birthday so started drinking suitably but then everyone went home before 11. bleedin' normals.
I have been contributing regularly to a very low budget music website since last October. I am very proud of the work that I have done for the site -- some long term pieces, news blogs, features, etc. -- but the quality of the site overall is absolutely shit. I brought this up to the editor today and he jumped down my throat. The man doesn't proofread anything. Should I:
A) Keep on truckin' and continue to write hoping that no one will judge me on the fact that the editor is a talentless lunatic
B) Quit writing and start my own music blog where I have more control over that quality of the content
The site's readership is okay but nowhere near great.
website does not pay me. I have a shitty day job but am trying to make my name as a writer so hopefully I can make money eventually doing what I love. Writing for a website run by an idiot that refuses to use spell check probably isn't going to look very good to potential employers, is it?
striking out on your own is gonna land you in the realm of a-million-and-one blogs that nobody cares about. start applying to some better ones seems a better choice.
a real writing gig (even if it's not about music, it's a start!). Thanks for your advice, ethricdouble. Am going to keep writing to my own standards for the site and just hope that any potential employers don't judge me based on the quality of the content that I had no control over.
Listening to the Max Payne 3 Soundtrack and the rain outside.
