This is why we need Hannah!
Last night I had a lovely evening with Michael Diver. We saw Jason Collett and hung out and got crunk on the free and ate some chicken.
I like my friends and my house and my face!
i'm thinking of truck festival and my gig and lots of other good things that have happened in the last 48 hours.
people are generally great and lovely.
and can't wait
I'm going to move house into somewhere bigger this year, in London, natch
My criminally ignored band is working on something very 'spectacular' and non-meat and two veg for early summer
I'm going to Liverpool in two weeks for the reds vs blues derby and to visit old haunts
I'm listening to Piper at the Gates of Dawn and can't wait to have children one day to play them 'The Gnome'
I have lost over a stone since xmas. In your face fat people.
in terms of being a skeletal success I'm a fat shit anyway ROFL
Nice people = the fella who was concerned about a VERY drunk Mrs B on Saturday night in Windemere, and then saw us again on Sunday morning and asked how we felt and made us the BEST Sunday Roast I think I've ever had. He was good. He gave me cider, and talked about teh boxing with me.
I don't know if my answer was good but I felt that I did a good job in the pub after a couple of pints of Fruli of providing the necessary "Theo? Helpdesk" moment.
People are nice all the time: Rose bought me a drink last night and provided company in a pub.
Gem dragged me out to see a good band on Tuesday
Sophie and Han came out to see me play my gig on Monday.
and all have flaws, which is what makes life interesting and erm....fun seeing no-one wants to hate anyone really
bunked work and drove for two hours to bring me the second series of Peep Show and to buff my ming vase yesterday. I am happy today.
Then my friend rang me yesterday even though I've not called her for ages which makes me swell.
I really hope that's a euphemism.
I'd be pretty chuffed if I actually had a real ming vase...
I'm actually quite intrigued. It's one I've never heard before!
Some nutty scottish bloke I know always talks about buffing ming vases so I thought I'd take it on.
Those crazy scottish basturts (he also says basturts...)
was Ace! I could hear AND SEE four of the new series of lost thanks to you!
Glad to hear it :-D
yet strangely up beat. Why? Well, because I just found out that at 2 pm on 4th May, I shall have completed my bacheleor degree. No more school EVER.
That's also my sister's birthday. Maybe you could take her for a drink? Go on. She looks a bit like me, only with long hair. Mmmmm, pretty.
that's a bit scary. She doesn't have your stubble, does she?
She shaves every Monday though, so she's a beginning-of-the-week kinda girl, really.
the 4th being a Thursday, I am afraid I shall have to pass.
as long as she doesn't go all posh and demands that one that vibrates.
is not one that I want to entertain, thankyou very much.
as so far I have an image of her as you with a long curly wig on, playing with a vibrating Mach 3 and shouting "ooh, as used by BECKHAM! BECKHAM!" or similar.
another for the call centre there young suuuur!
I shall never ever be working in a call centre. Having a stammer means I cannot anyway, and I've already got an interview for a job as an information consultant in Oslo city council.
are AMAZING. Truly awesome. I love them lots, they've really been there for me when I've needed them without even asking :o)
I particularly like the ones that have fed me ;o)
or made me mix CDs :o)
I don't cook many pies so I shall return it!
Or provided tech support on the phone from a pub? ;-)
go forward in 16 days - that makes me VERY HAPPY
I have to start cycling to work though. Damn me and my stupid promises. Gah.
You'll get to dodge traffic, much like chuck norris would do. And if that's not a positive thing, I don't know what is.
as I get terribly down in winter
to think how does poor people who live past the arctic circle must feel when the sun disappears and then doesn't come back for months. Sadness.
you wait until the clocks go back?
Shouldn't you hold off a month or so?
It's light at 7.30 when I get up, so it'll be fine when they go forward. Although putting it off again until October sounds like a right plan at the moment...
It's a big fucking kick but it's easier to pick yourself up and continue floating along in your happy bubble.
Shall I file it under 'brolly' (insert 'Im just waggging AGAIN')
I'm happy - Im happy all the time really secretly
Is that like the porn version of Gem? The Director's Cut?
+ Gem = Gem X?
involved as in 'We're going on holiday hurrah - erm you father's just died' sort of thing - but mostly it's best to be in denial of the 'darkness' as it were so I agree with SCL - if she ever replies
Prole I'm replying all the time, tuck your sensitivity radar away!
It was Gem followed by a kiss
no super powers? :(
she has the ability to make her friends extremely happy all the time!
that's something! :D
Maybe SCL, but I think of it as a sound wave. The higher the highs, then the lower the lows. I think this applies when you look at people. Someone that can and does experience intense happiness is also both capable and more liable to feeling intense upset, whichever form that manifests itself in. I think (and it works for me) that if you don't aim for being too high then you won't ever reach too low
My friends have all been really amazing and have supported me through a really rough time recently, which I'm coming out of. On Sunday, before dj-ing, I met with my friend Amanda, who suddenly handed me this funkily wrapped present... a present "just for the sake of it", which turned out to be a double disc documentary about Spike Jones, featuring all of his music videos, commentary about making them - like 6 hours of Spike..!
I nearly started crying... (emo).
Also, the DiS crew have been awesome and put up with my late night rambling texts, my neurotic emails and threads, and constant references to he-who-shall-not-be-named (SUDDEN FLASH BACK TO THAT FILM 'THE VILLAGE' - god it rocks)...
So to this, I applaud the DiS crew, and throw you all a wonderful, wonderful big phat embrace... Thank you. (bows head lower). And Hannah, thanks for reminding us that there are GOOD things in life too, not just neurotic ramblings of DiSers who might be jaded at this particular point in time.
thanks for making me giggle last night xxx
??? I think I have a natural ability to make people laugh even when being serious... he he... I'm just a fucking nutter deep down.. let's face it.. he he...
text you sent me!
a love-in isn't it
and you love it Man!
(aint smooooove - Han).
Hey, Han, your name now reminds me none other than HAN SOLO - my childhood sweetheart... He he... Han Han Han... He he he he heheheeeeeeeeeee.
Yes, you are on my "night list" for texting.. watch out!! What timeth we meet upeth tonighteth...?
Prole, it's a total love smash up, groove ride...
I'm available straight from work so anytime from 6 I'm free!
let's DiScuss closer to the end of play today...
Euros Child? And how are you!?
Nice to see you posting!
Are you thinking of coming to Cardiff March 31st?
I am still trying to decide because if I do I get to see my Mam which will make her happy! I don't know!
Can you remember any key lyrics?
I am majorly excited about moving house
to get someone to do all the carrying for you. I hate carrying things. Pretend you have a dodgy back.
I have an Australian man with a van
and my two housemates. I think we'll be ok. I actually do have a dodgy back - I'll take a directorial role!
You need some bamos muscle?
I've read all day.
I have a day off tomorrow.
I'm managing to cut down on DiS and have been very productive at work.
I've seen loads of ace gigs recently (and Germlin tonight?).
I'm getting excited about planning something FUN.
I listened to DiS Radio on the way to work and it made me laugh and get excited about music.
Everyone is NICE.
I've realised I've been single for 9 months this week, and all the exciting things that have happened since then make me very happy.
(which is in Cardiff, apparently)
I'm going to truck
I'm going to MK snowdome on Saturday
I'm going to have to buy a belt cos I've lost THAT MUCH weight
Audion and Awol One CDs arrived today
It's lunchtime already!!!
Ely! Why on earth?
was in Norfolk? Or am I drunk?
when heading from Cambridge to Peterborough. It has a cathedral.
I've eased off on the ! today
Bands sending a free CD and apologizing because it's late...
If you concentrate on the positives too much, it's more of a kick in the crown jewels when a negative comes along. I prefer to live my life in the middle, not too many ups and not too many downs. Therefore, my mood today is mostly one of indifference
