Such an exciting time to be alive. You got anything planned?
Might go to Notts for a few drinks, might stay at home and keep learning "Never going back again" on guitar. Endless possibilities.
Might find true love
I'm still in Berlin, going home tomorrow. Will be good to get back really. I have a ticket for a film at 9 so I'll probably go watch that, even though it means I have to leave in less than an hour and I'm still unshowered and in PJs. Also have to get up fairly early tomorrow as I have to leave the flat around 9 to get to the airport.
I'd love to go there if I ever leave the uk!
so haven't really gone exploring the city that much. found some bars where you can smoke inside though <3
But I don't really go out much now so I have no reason to try and look cool
I've decided to skip the film now. There will be more chances later in the year and I'm just really tired and don't feel like doing anything. So I'll be hanging around for a little while.
Going to nip across the road in a minute to get a Chinese (beef satay, egg fried rice, thanks for asking).
Dunno what to do after that. Feel a bit worn out. Could play some bass, could play some card games, will probably just aimlessly wander around the internet and scratch myself tbqfh.
Then train up to Newcastle to see the girlfriend.
How are you Bammers?
cant remember when for though!
i'm always up for some quality pub time though (y)
I DEMAND A NEW VOTE
I'm going to see mineral, wearing a black hoodie especially for the occasion.
So the family are heading out for a curry, can't wait as I'm fucking starving.
Have been in the pub since 5.30, got a nice hazey feeling happening! :)
It was lovely.
Can I be fucked heading out?!?!
You live for the party
Was it yr favourite curry spot LP?
And it was excellent. Trying hard not to slip into a food coma
I have questions for you re: glaswegian oriented golf for crapola players/beginners but they can wait...enjoy the coma homie.
have all started playing the last couple years and the annual chaps weekend is being planned right about now. Golf is now on the cards and Glasgow looks to be our spot. We'll have transit (even if we fly I'll probs hire a car) and wondered what might be a sensible course for 18 in July that won't be so hard as to kill us? Some of the bods here said that you'd be the one to ask, plus have had some other suggestions too which look good. Probs be looking at a couple of courses so all advice is welcome!
My course Whitecraigs is a good course, it's very varied but a good challenge without being super tough.
Gailes is also good, as is Buchanan which is pretty flat but very pretty and quiet.
Gailes had come up before, this is all really helpful. UP suggested Gleddoch too, and Sketches said The Carrick.
Google was just crazy, so many courses, really pleased to get some insight on this. If only I wasn't so shit at it!
Hope you joke about like a badman with your family Lo-Sqaud. A drink and curry is too good.
IT'S ALL ABOUT ME BEING ON THE TELLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!J!!!!@!!!!!~!!!
i'm an octochamp. as if i needed to practice.
(...might have spent the half hour before i went on set practising on this crappy Android app and panicking thinking i was playing rubbish cos i'd only had 5 hours' sleep the night before)
Are you a famous person? Don't recognise the username
which is lierally the only reason i'm on tonight. they wanted a female octochamp and i'm the best one. I KNEW I DIDN'T WASTE NEARLY 4 YEARS OF MY LIFE PLAYING ONLINE!
did they pay you to turn up?
nearly as much as i'd earn in a week (though im temping so it's not *that* much, but still greatly aprpeciated. and also i'd have done it for free so £££ is just an added bonus)
It must be really cool to be great at something
it's basically the holy grail of Countdowndom (there are quite a few but even so)
Feel better about myself
My housemate has suggested joining him in the pub later, but I'm not sure I can summon the energy (particularly as it's also belting down with rain).
I'm shite at being social on the social board so I should pop in and say hi once in a while like.
It's been an odd one this week I went to a memorial service for an old family friend yesterday, she'd been suffering from motor neurone disease for a while. It was humbling. Me and me mum did a 9 hour round trip for it yesterday. I can't imagine what the family have been going through the last few years. There was loads of people at the service. The two lads from the family that we grew up always hanging out with in holidays when we were young and stuff are doing a mad load of fund raising. I think they have about £30,000 for their mam right now. They're legends.
Tonight I'll mostly be chilling, watching some wrestling, having a beer and listening to some music.
I'm too sensitive
Sensitive is alright like. I've been a depressed dude for about a decade and just about convinced myself that sensitive is an alright quality on the whole.
Last time I saw the lass who's memorial it was for was my dads funeral about four years ago and she was good then. It just came out of nowhere then dragged on for ages for the family you know. My family were really close when growing up. Her husband was my dads best man and all that and we always mucked about in holidays at theirs. After childhood stuff we'd grew apart a bit cos everyone goes their own way and stuff more than anything so we only saw each other on and off for a while.
She was a right laugh like, she got them to play the Archers theme (which is a banger to be fair) and Baker Street, wrote a mega long speech to be read out, which was incredible, she'd had ages to see it coming and write loads of stuff... Her acupuncturist who'd been real good for her though it all made killer fart joke or two.
I'd love to write my own funeral, it's just the dying part that would suck.
I'm a real human like, I'm just shit at social boards.
I'm alright. Just glad I was there for the close family more than anything. I kind of did duty for my dad to his mate from school days and was there for the kids who I grew up with. Me mum knew them from before I was born n'all and I was there with her too. It was as good as it could have been like.
no bad thing mate. Hope yr keeping well buddy ",
after the 'undisputable pop bangers' rampage that Wookie's 'Battle' has been spun a whole lot!
I was a bit drunk for that one, I don't think I've look at it since. I know my undisputed underground pop bangers from childhood times though. The DJ Zinc remix is good too.
which is nice. Loads of going for walks, making music, and playing games and stuff. I really hope I get some creative work done this week.
Unfortunately I have my driving test (again) soon, which I'm always so nervous about. Annoying thing is that I can actually drive and do everything easily well enough to pass, but my nerves just make the whole thing a complete ballache.
Eating: Lebanese takeaway
Watching: Louie, series 2
Listening to: new Jose Gonzalez record.
enjoying it a lot!
fucking hell. Why are curries so shit in Manchester
when the meat (chicken in this instance) is really small chunks.
my mam made a curry from the jar the other day and my dad refused to eat it cause it was 'the wrong colour and probably boring'
spent today doing some stuff around the house and trying to recover from a bad arthritis flare - really boring.
might have another cup of tea while i'm waiting for my boyfriend to finish work
it's nuts that we have yet o meet
you're the best
(I will not)
conscious you guys
I'm at home, alone. It's really nice. Having a glass of red wine and trying to prepare for my gig tomorrow night (if anyone's around in London!).
Gonna put a face pack on and jump in the bath with twigs of lavender in a moment. Really does beat going out tonight. And I'm reading a new book. <3
She gone now.
I really want to live on a boat with a bookshelf full of old books and an old fire, like my mates have. They're so happy together on the boat.
imagine what it's like on a boat ",
Thanks for helping me to get back on the mindfulness, I feel a lot better.
How have things been for you? Mindfulness takes practice, I still havent' mastered it and keep going back to my notes, but there was a lovely documentary I watched the other night and I really recommend it.
It's called 'Happy' and the full version is here:
the start of this year was hard and I needed to medicate again to make myself functional, but now I am I feel a lot better, kind of like I'm part of the world again which is lovely. Just learning how to take pleasure in simple things which is actually really cool.
Yeah, I'd totally lost touch with mindfulness after trying really hard (I think that was the issue) with it when things first started going wrong for me. I've come back to it after we spoke a little while ago with a less spiritual take on it (it's Mark Williams book that I've since been using, let me know if you'd like the details) and the CD of guided meditation it comes with has helped me understand the practice, so it;s now really enjoyable and something I look forward to a lot - I didn't realise how nice it can be to just breathe!
I probably wouldn't have pursued it with so much vigour if you hadn't mentioned it on here so seriously, thank you. I'll be watching that vid tomorrow too!
How are you doing anyway? It sounds like things might be on the up, I really hope so :)
at work working on my video, it sucks
just ate a huge burrito and feel like taking a nap
just checking in

Wish that show still had a tendency to be this subversive and satirical
not only is it funnier and more full of life, but there's a genuine anger and subversion behind it.
About just how good early Simpsons was and how there are few things that come even close! :)
Atomos at Sadler's Wells, scored live by A Winged Victory For The Sullen.
Was really good.
They were amazing when they played the best part of it at the underground, must've been lovely with the choreography too.
saw USA Nails, God Damn and Hawk Eyes doing the hits - fucking brilliant gig. I love USA Nails so much, proper haircuts and everything.
with a frankly EXCELLENT support band
will do champ!
address on it.
Just waiting for it
