Bad Things About Monday

♣ Not being in Berlin.

♣ Being late for the J Mascis and the Fog Gig.

♣ Having to leave the gig at 11 to get the last train.

♣ Having to walk away hearing everyone else cheering the band back on.

♣ Missing the last train home. Actually, getting to the bottom step just in time to watch it leave.

Good Things About Monday

♣ J. J. J. J being amazing and God and just omg.

♣ The rhythm section - "The Fog" - Dave Schools and Kyle Spence. Kyle Spence is totally cute and the drummer. Who even knew that was possible? Either way, they were tight and sweet. Lots of lovely little bass embellishments I've never heard/picked up on the cd's.

♣ The keycode on the "dressing room" not wanting to play and keeping everyone on the outside. Highly amusing watching grown men trying to kick a door in.

♣ That despite leaving late I still managed to catch the end of the opening act, and they were good. Just need to find out their name now.

♣ The way, when J would kick a switch, it felt like I was being driven over a hill too fast. Never ever had that happen at a gig before. Insane.

♣ Getting right in front of J being surprisingly (or not so, it's not a push to imagine most of the crowd were smarter than me) easy. 6 foot away from God. His arms actually are that nice. But his hands are amazing. He doesn't make it look easy, which would be forgiveable, he makes it look obvious, for which he is a rat bastard.

♣ the lung
blowing it
everybody lets me down
so what else is new
the wagon
and the others I can't remember.

If I have to see this, you all have to see this.

(or how i learnt to stop worrying and love the timewar )

I used to really love Jo too, but now I'll never be able to look at a Dalek without wondering what other attachments it has hidden away...

sweet little flurries coating the world like icing sugar

and no one can see it but me.

Oh so sad. I'm trying to revise for my exam tomorrow and all i can think is ' snowsnowsnowsnow'. I'm up and down every five minutes checking out the window to see if its started snowing again.

It sleeted before and i almost cried at the thought of the loss of snow. :(

Mind you, I've just been having something to eat in the front room with French Nick and he's just the same - up and down at the window, special attention to the weather reports, and making plans for a house-wide snow battle.

lol. so childish.

(let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..)

First Jules came round, then we snuggled, then the pizza man interrupted said snuggling- but brought pizza which made it ok. THEN we had pizza, and then I saw it was snowing, really huge fat fluffly flakes of the stuff.

AND then we had some more snuggles :) and then we went for a walk. And then we came back and watched some tv and got warm and dry, and then we had a SNOWBALL FIGHT with French Nick. I think I won, but you can never be sure.

So yeah.


What a good night :-D

~happy burp~

Yanno when a guy turns up at your house bearing the LOTR The Two Towers dvd because you wanted to see it, Dr. Pepper and Chicken pakoora because you were hungry and a bag of haribo because 'i was in tesco and it jumped at me' you know you've got a good one.

Even if he does compare you to the girl out of Evanescence and has to find out first hand that you weren't kidding about the psychios in your bloodline..

so yeah.

Dear Editor:

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so." Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?

Virginia O'Hanlon

Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Huzzah for being done for Xmas.

Even if i do have to do a hella lot of dissertation work and an essay before i go back. Pfft! to that I say..

And I've given up on subway for the wonders that is Christmas Market snausage.
I bought a little pork saussison, and I swear that was all i was going to have, but the happy french sausage seller guy was all like 'only one??' so i bought some Chorizo also.

And it burns.

So I've had to get some Dr. Pepper, but merely to sooth my mouth you understand.

And french Nick my housemate has said that he might grow a musketeer moustache, but i think I'll probably have to remind him/pout..

and I am fast today.
just fast.

so. last night.

I dragged [ profile] kingginger out to take me to see My Life Without Me at the cornerhouse, because I was under the impression it was finishing real soon, only its its still showing for a while..woops. But I think he enjoyed it.

And so he should. It was a cool film, about a young woman who finds out she's dying of cancer and it makes her re evaluate what she thought was living, err and stuff. Well, it made me sniffle, so it can't have been that bad.

(plus, to come down to the lowest level, scott speedman is hot, so..:-P)

and then we got some food and alkyhol and saw [ profile] plushy who I recognised from the back and the hair, and I saw [ profile] dumb_blond too, but she was busy with her friends..

and then we watched rollins on my computer and went to sleep like good little children Read more... ) and got up at an ungodly hour to watch us thrash france at rugby :)

Which French Nick, I think is refusing to accept, but yanno, you can't win all the time. Or in France's case, since Hastings..

and now I'm thinking off food and trying to find things to do instead of my uni work.

Q. Whats worse than waking up in the morning after a night of snuggled and warm sleep and waving bye bye to the snuggler?

A. Having to do it before you've evn got the chance to have anything more than a nap. :(
And then watching them go off to et some work. At 3 in the morning.

But yeah, [ profile] kingginger dragged me off to see Finding Nemo last night and well, its alright really.
Cutesy animation, saccharine story, moral for the parents watching..etc etc.

But not too bad..cute.

And even I had to smile at the end..and the gulls..and the little french shrimp thing..
And Jules blubbering like a little girl at the beginning..I'm starting to wonder about him yanno. :-P

But yeah, if i didn't know people who have copies, I'd probably get it on dvd. Or think about it atleast..maybe..

The Twits was fun, a kiddies show so lots of the little buggers running around staring at me getting felt up in the interval etc..
But good fun nonetheless, lots of people who should know better (*cough*jules*cough*) singing with the Roly Poly Bird, though he was very convincing...but yeah, theatre good. Even if i haven't been in a gazilion years.
Spent some time drinking and talking to my housemates friends in the Cornerhouse bar, and went off to Northern Funk. Which was at the same time fun and my version of Hell..
but we left after an hour or so to food hunt.
So tis all good.

But now I have to shower cause I smell all sleepy and meaty.
And I'm sure I don't want to be taking that to Jennys.. laterz peeps. xx

Too late for me though, he's sold the phone she gave him, the phone she would have given to me. Grrr.

Sweet day.

We worked hard all morning and didn't really take any breaks and then after lunch we all went outside to our little piece of grass and made like we were sorting more boxes of files.
We chatted like mad, made daisy chains, did headstands and cartwheels and I finally introduced the group to a lad that Toni likes so she can talk to him..

And now we're going to Weatherspoons for our tea. Its been a real cool group of people we've had working this summer, best in all the three years I've been suckered into this heh.
Ah well. nighty xx

Right. I'm caffeine propped, so can do this.
But I'm not in the mood for sentences so there! :p

Went into Warrington town with sis. She will not go in alone, go figure..
Went Jillies. Had ale. Bagpuss gets too much male attention. Is it possible to have a bag spayed? Methinks not unfortunately...
Was put up by Jenny. Cause she's lovely like that. (Fankyews. *muah*)

Get up very early. Am impressed by this.
Go home.

As sunday, but with added work. ~Hiss~

[ profile] fooldramaqueen's birthday
Go to Alton Towers.
Ride the rides.
Break Bagpuss.
Find KFC

Much better than work. Much better company too.
And not an x-ray in sight.

And from Wednesday to today read as Monday.
Am now very tired. Have started taking naps in the afternoon. Not so bad now the people I work with have started doing the same..

Will not be out this weekend as am now Very Poor. Which is a shame, but means I can sleep. Besides, payday next week.

So this came from [ profile] ghostwheel and I'm posting it here because I feel that certain people could do witha refresher.
(Hint: if you think this doesn't apply to you, it probably doesn't ;) )

Does not mean greedy.
(One partner will do)
Does not mean hyper-sexual.
(I do not want to fuck everything that moves)
Does not mean on my way to being straight.
(Or gay)
Does not mean confused.
(I'm more stable than you are)
Does not mean I have twice the options.
(Are you attracted to half the people on Earth? Are they remotely interested in you?)
And even if it did mean any of these things for me, I would still be cool.
