Tell me all your gossip!
stand on my face on saturday night.
then spent the rest of the weekend tricking myself into believing that i was indeed making good progress on my dissertation.
I talked to chris-budget's girlfriend about breasts, and received a copy of the Fog Band's single on 7".
I also applied for the vacant position of Sultan of London, and had a marriage proposal accepted by my future Sultana (sultana may or may not be a female sultan).
wallpaper, ripped up carpets, painted and swept up a lot!!!
to my cousins house
don't want to. :p
I went to a 70th birthday party, fed lambs and piglets and went to a fair!
I had a great weekend!
The lambs were so cute - only a week old!
So will be my Mum and family dinners!
do on Friday night for my grandparents' golden wedding anniversary (they're quite posh you see).
Then on Saturday I went to see MOGWAI who were AWESOME.
I also realise that Sambo, a nickname of mine, is an anagram of Bamos. Dun-dun-DUHHNNNN!
we knew there was something going on with you two!
Sam and Bamos sitting in a tree...
Along with 'God', 'Ace' and 'Pass me that tin of biscuits, twatflaps'
since sambo is like, a derogatory racist term?
I didn't know that, it's just an extension of Sam in my case.
Next time someone calls me that I'll shake my head at them and call them a racist.
Probably time to call a halt to that one then.
since not many people seem to realise...
Yeah we have an old children's book at home called 'Little Black Sambo' that mum has never really known what to do with. I think a relative gave it to us 20-odd years ago. :-/
so it's THAT book then. I didn't realise it was quite so infamous.
gotta love it really, it's so unPC it's hilarious.
and now it actually looks vaguely NICE. this is a major achievement for me.
of course, i'm now half way through my tenancy agreement and may end up moving out at the end of it, but whatEVAR.
also, i went to my mother's and came home with six video tapes entirely of episodes of 24, Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis. WIN!
Saw Marion, got quite drunk (jamesons and soda water = best drinker ever), went home, watched Fight Club.
Schw, and indeed, eeeet.
where i skanked every one of my drinks. i'm such a skank.
then i went to the british museum on saturday but only made it round the egyptian floor cos i was late and hungover.
THEN i went to FROG, got twatted on orange VKs, someone called me edith bowman.
on sunday i dragged myself to hammersmith to 'watch' the boatrace... i saw them for about 5 seconds, and battled my way through posh people and aussies back to the bush to the pub. then i went home and watched planet earth, charlies angels and fight club, and went to bed.
that's an, er, strange one.
you them and refuse to buy one back!
seen Buster Bloodvessel dancing? Kinda like that. Drink in each hand, alternate swigs from each as your arms move in a comical slightly robotic manner.
Sarky = Buster Bloodvessel.
and urm... skank, like, scab a drink?
that sounds like you fall off your bike, wait a couple of days and then pick bits off your scabs and drop them in people's alcopops for a 'laff'.
i think you mean 'cadge a drink'. that's a better word.
i think it's an irish thing. i'll ssh now.
scabbing is underhand.
no joke! yay!
so I downloaded a Countdown game and played that. I'm AMAZING at the numbers game
I'm not working (ie real work) at work anymore now I'm leaving... he he - so sciving it big time while looking for work.. so here you go... a mass debrief...
Fri night - went to Pleasure Unit in Bethnal Green and met my friend Dan there... watched an act - Theoretical Girl (she's aaaaaaaaace- - funky electronica with guitars... and the best fringe I've seen on anyone in a long time... Nice)...
Then went to a horrible house party near Spitalfields with Dan.. Everyone there was on coke and it was a rather wanky, pretentious party... Dan left me there stranded because he was rather drunk too (read, smashed)... I freaked out and called THEO??? (remembered something about 333). Theo told me that everyone else was at 333. So I called SCL who somewhow directed me there (bless her - owe her big time). I drank a few ciggies, smoked a few rollies, met a few other DiSers, got a taxi back east, bought a tuna bagel, logged onto DiS, then passed out on the couch at SCL's and Brainloves, in a coma...
The next day I was made coffee, bagels, and sent on my way after some nice conversation.
Saturday: Crawled home, read papers and magazines in bed then went to a friends house for dinner, more wine, and films.
Sunday: breakfast at said friends' place... a walk to a local farmer's market... then home. My flatmate came back from LA and I heard ALL ABOUT her trip which sounded awesome! Cleaned my flat. Then headed to Bethnal Green to play records and drink cider with Dan, my friend Chris, and my friend Terry... Got home at 1.00am this morning.
And here I am.
and did loads of shopping. bought sigur ros 'takk' which there has been a lot of arguring about today on the boards. i like it.
also, i cooked a curry for my other half, which she now wants to be referred to as. im gonna do some cooking at truck, even tho they wont allow it. by the way who wants to come my bday party. i need some bands and am willing to get neone therE!!
met noel fielding in toilet of barfly(see earlier thread)
looked at my birds new underwear
when i went boosh, aftershow was good.
the aftershow was hilarious. i think. i was so fucked tho. tequila and vodka all the way.
always too many girls in the toilet at barfly tho
and last night i saw graham coxon. it was a fun weekend.
Saturday morning...had a nice time.
Made kids breakfast.
visited ikea/B&Q for plumbing stuff.
did weekly food shop
had a couple of beers
cut hole in kitchen sink counter
took kids to laser shooting party (my 8 year olds birthday)
held pinyata so that the kids could miss that and hit me instead.
swept up mess afterwards
Plumbed in the hot water tap for the new ikea kitchen sink unit.
Plumbed in the waste water and washing machine.....unfortunately ripped the rubber seal of the cold water so Mrs knees will have to go upstairs to get cold water for the rest of the week (until I get back from work)
also the washing machine plumbing in hasn't quite gone according to plan as there is a slight leak.
Saw Charlies Angels a bit of fight club....went to bed
I realise this is mundane for you 'kids' just giving you a perspective
like an exemplary father and husband!
I went back to hastings went round a friends friday night, had a few drinks, played balderdash and watched after hours.
saturday had a BTL + cheesey chips for lunch, which was about a 1/9 chips/cheese ratio. convinced somone to buy nathan barely, played uno in a bar for about 2 hours and almost won. i also won a bee keyring from one of those 2 pence tray slidy type machines in the arcades.
sunday cooked toad in the hole, started working on a compilation and case for a mix tape exchange and huffed pva glue. gave up on getting a train back to london due to a 2 bus replacement service meaning i had to leave the house at 6:45 this morning, i was not happy.
On the plus side i got away with not gettin a ticket, turned up to work 30 minutes late and no one seemed bothered.
