was going to go out - not going out now.
feel a bit down now. TALK TO ME.
My mate's just broken up with his thinly veiled of 2 years, so I'm gonna go to the pub with him for a few pints, realistically dissolving into teary-eyed reminiscing and awkward comforting.
Tomorrow looks promising - going shopping for a suit for my birthday (not a birthday suit) in the morning, then Guided By Voices day/BBQ in Brixton!
watching Justified and drinking strongbow and hanging out with the cat
going out in a bit though HONESTLY
i got the first Junior Senior album for a pound earlier. A POUND!
and my brother to turn up to give me abuse cos he's an arsehole
papa johns, disappointing as usual. Regretted it instantly.
it's usually better than the chains and I get to patron a place called "Corner Pizza Corner" that is actually in the middle of a block and pretty far from any corners
but there's nowhere thats near enough to me that I would consider walking to in this shit mood. Took the safe option. Live and learn.
just eaten some sushi. I can't seem to get enough of it lately.
was planning to stay in, but now I want to go out. DONT KNOW.
all i have is elderflower and apple yoghurt
DOWN IT DOWN IT
fuck it, going out
Moving into our new house [apartment] tomorrow.
Went to collect the keys this afternoon.
Had a look in the post box and there was a "we know you're watching tv, see you in court" letter from the TV Licensing people. If ever there was proof their 'threats' are hot air... The building has only been standing since December and they only finished kitting the place out a couple of weeks ago. Intimidatory pricks.
or point out their mistake?
But suspect it would be a total waste of time.
Seems pretty poor form to send out such threatening, accusatory letters when not only do they not have any 'proof, but it's 99.99% certain that a TV has not been watched at the address
they're a bunch of bastards. they sent loads of really threatening letters to my granny completely in error and she got really worried and upset over it.
bailed because I'm tired. What a loser.
Listening to music loudly though which is fun.
thus i am staying in sweating and aching and dreaming of a cold pint
Going home to my parents' tomorrow and then going out with my friend who is over from London. Also my sister and nephew are home and we're all going for a meal on Sunday for my dad's (and mine almost) birthday. Decent weekend.
I had that thing where you're walking down the street and someone is coming towards you and you step to one side and they go the same way and then you go to the other side and they go the same way, before you eventually manage to shuffle around each other. But it happened with a DOG instead of a person.
Drinking gin. Nostalgic.
always goes right to my head.
My ticket fir Glasgow to Birmingham was £15 and £10 on the way back.
I got one of their Edinburgh to London trains yesterday for the first time, via Birmingham. Takes an hour longer but it was £13 one way with my railcard, which is half the price of the East Coast service I'm going back on.
what?? how do people get trains this cheap
I can never do it
also because I'm a full time student I get to have a YP railcard despite being way too old for that
the East Coast site has an email ticket alert function, it's really good.
the last time I went to london I booked about 4 months in advance and I'm sure it was £80
I'm shit at trains
basically, the really cheap trains go on sale about 12 weeks in advance. before that you pay loads. too late after that you pay loads as well.
when on a tilting train my friend said "oh wow look at that canal, it's on an angle"
never letting him live that down
community and parks and rec and portlandia and maybe alpha papa, and eat slow cooked brisket and drink beer yeh
Then we're going cinema to see spice world
Bit weird going out at 11pm tho
and watching Have I Got News for You.
Living the dream (or not).
like, I'm not planning on sleeping right away but I also probably won't leave my bed until tomorrow morning now. I'm 22 and it's 9.18pm on a Friday.
There are whole meat joints encased in glass cabinets everywhere and the beer's about £1.10. These people are obsessed with cold soup, man, and fucking castles. Get up, look at some castles, eat some cold soup, have a couple of cheap beers, listen to some cheesy twat playing a guitar - every European holiday i've ever been on.
I need one of those face masks they wear in places like japan and china
thought I was getting a cold. Every Spring I have hayfever amnesia coming out of a few months off from it.
I've always wanted one of these masks from my teenage techno heroes: http://www.theticketsellers.co.uk/uploaded_images/59229.jpg
got really drunk. a colleague got drunker so I took her to McDonald's where she threw up in her happy meal box and some kids hassled is for monopoly stickers. happy Friday!
Pretty skint. Loads of work to do.
Might play Team Fortress to put off the pain and stress.
it's quite something
and realises it didnt go down as good as he hoped and takes his glass to make it look like he's doing something.
nrrgghhhh. feel tired all the time and i have so much work to do i get incredibly stressed if i go more than about 90 minutes without reading about physics. also all the summer placements keep going to thick fuckers and not, e.g. me.
gonna go see mike watt tomorrow to cheer myself up i reckon.
Want to work abroad or at least not to tied down. Feel like I'm always running away.
i feel really useless in this country
Went to see Brand New earlier. Lovely stuff. I'm a little drunk?
i went out for a while and it was ok but everything in life is dull just now. i'm a bit sad recently but at the same time i s'pose i'm ok with being a bit sad because i've been almost unfairly content for quite a while, so i feel like i'm due a turn at being sad, y'know?
right now the thing i'm most excited about in life is reading books and now i'm going to go and continue reading a.l. kennedy's paradise which is lovely so far. oh god i love books so much.
i sit in bed for hours on my laptop and it makes getting up to brush my teeth so i can sleep the hardest thing in the universe.
being unemployed is shit, i hate capitalism. I wouldnt mind being unemployed if it wasnt for capitalism i dont think.
that might sound like the worst advice OF ALL TIME but i regularly 'forget' (am too lazy) to brush my teeth and my teeth are still actually perfect and i've never had a filling. and i went to the dentist last week so this is proper up-to-the-minute research. #fluorideconspiracy
but hey, sacrifices have to be made in the great #fluoridewar
it's more for the aesthetic pleasure of my teeth feeling new than being worried about rotting and stuff. Ive not been to the dentist since i was 15
i'm saying this to boost your self-esteem
Glasgows too fucking small.
