Wow, what a thoroughly rubbish day...

I ended up not going to sleep last night in an attempt to regulate my sleep pattern. Twisted logic. That was a bad idea, as I had to spend 6 hours working in an office today. My god, that was boring... This company found out that they could reclaim £50k that they had paid over the past X years in VAT. So, I have been employed to trawl through that many years worth of receipts and generally write lots of numbers to be passed on to the taxman. I took my MP3 player but felt too rude to actually listen to it. Here's hoping I get a decent wage come the end of the week.

Fuck, I'm drained

jesus, it's 2 am... [Jul. 31st, 2005|02:04 am]
I didn't go to Duckfest on account of illness. Apparently I did not miss out on too much, bar dive dive who are ace. But yeah, I got taken out by some chums, to Indian restaurant, then to Glasshouse and then to the Vintry. Which was fun, although I felt incredibly ill for a substantial amount of time (that is to say, until I had drunk too much to notice). Dancing to cheesey music is good. The troops wanted to go to Batchwood. I refused because going out costs too much money. Especially around here.

I need sleep, and food. Hope everyone is good X

At the least of times I am not a particularly eloquent person but nonetheless, here goes...

Since term ended I have been suffering immense boredom and appear to have been going out less that I did during term time... odd. I have no job over the summer as I was not available when contacted by my regular summer employer. It's my birthday in 2 days... I don't seem to be excited by this prospect and haven't been since I was about 10. Boo.

I have now well and truly booked a language course in Salamanca over the second week of August. Well, I have booked flights but whether or not I have guaranteed accommodation remains to be clarified. Woops. Incidentally the 2 people I am going with are not great friends but I am sure jokes can be had and I shall be there for less than a week.

I can't go and see Oceansize because the show sold out, about this I am very upset. I have Dive Dive on Wednesday. The whole situation in London didn't really seem to affect me (though I must admit I haven't made a trip to town since...) but last night I was thinking about the journey and actually felt quite panicky. I have since devised a route that will mean I am on the underground between 2 tube stations.

Tonight I went to my local with Abi, James (her boyfriend) and Holly's boyfriend Ricc. I am rather worried about A and J's relationship... she came out tonight with a massive lump on her forehead, the result of a fight they'd had earlier this evening. I know the pair get angry with each other in quite a violent manner, which naturally I find quite disturbing, yet am powerless to do anything about. Her boyfriend is actually a really nice guy, though immensely protective of Abi and will get incredibly distressed by minor occurrences. Urgh. It's difficult, and definitely not right.

Hope you are all well LJ friends X

[Current Music |dive dive - sounds all wrong]

This week has been rather hectic. Let me recount...

On Tuesday and Wednesday I had exams. I am an idiot and didn't sleep on Tuesday night as I really did need to do some revision for the my exams the next day. That was 6 hours of exams and was not much fun. Except, I wrote Chesney (the name of my future husband) on the table which kept me vaguely amused for a while, and the prospect of the evening's gig also aided my survival.

Said gig was was absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately I was épuisée and had some utter knobs in front of me. Realistically that was not going to be enough to prevent me from enjoying every second of the set. "Every time a teenager listens to..." is currently my favourite song and I am 'peadophile-in-a-playground' excited about this album. A kick in the mouth sounds ace live (remember kids, it's out Monday!) and I really do want to go to BukandSkit. [Someone please force me to stop saying this and actually buy a ticket].

After the show I arranged with Gem and Holly to be collected en route to Birmingham at half one the next day. When they arrived for me I was fast asleep and they had to spend about quarter of an hour outside ringing the doorbell until I eventually arose (sorry!). [Moral of the story is, if you are meant to be meeting Lucy anywhere at anytime, you should always make sure you have had some form of contact with her that day. Bear in mind, I can text/have phone conversations in my sleep and remember nothing of them afterwards.] So, the journey to Birmingham was (to my recollection) smooth. Birmingham itself, is a nightmare, so we were amazed to spot Granita, thinking we would be able to follow it/her to the record store. Granita however, appeared to be going the wrong way, so Rachel picked up her phone to give them a call... (This was AFTER she yelled at them out the window "LISTEN TO DIVE DIVE"). It was then that the text from Tarrant/Dave stating that the instore had been cancelled was discovered. D'oh!

About 150 miles later, we are in Winchester, where Tarrant has very kindly guestlisted us all in apology for the Birmingham cock up. I was going to suggest he guestlisted Gem and Holly for the whole tour, but maybe that takes the piss ever so slightly. It was decided that we would write them a setlist, which got shunned massively (a shame as it was fucking A). The Dive Dive album, Tilting at Windmills, (released 11th July) is absolutely incredible and I recommend that all of you that read this (... that's about 5 people) buy it.

That night, I stayed at the Swain residence and sat up all night and:

- waited for the Reuben video to make an appearance (which it didn't!)
- was introduced to the genius that is... Bob Ross
- scoured the net for Nigel with hair
- laughed a lot
- listened to one of the funniest songs ever (connected to the 2 previously noted activities!)

Gem made 2 cakes in the morning, whilst I dozed on the sofa. It was a very hot day and I had a chance to walk about for a bit. It is pretty where Gem and Holly live. I like fields.

Holly got home from work and we departed for Oxford. She has super-longlasting batteries that one. I can only wonder how she does it. The acoustic set was short but sweet. Purchased the Sorry Suitor single which deserves to do well in the general chart. Alas, the cancellation of 3[?] instores and lack of promotion doesn't fare well, which is a damn shame.

So, after a thoroughly knackering couple of days, I woke up at 7 today. That's 7pm. Forutnately, this was just in time to catch Doctor Who. Unfortunately I had missed my friends' gig that I had promised to attend, and was kind of hoping to catch. Boo. The rest of the crowd had gone to St Albans. St Albans is rubbish, so I have spent the evening sitting in my pink dressing gown doing nothing. Productive.

Tomorrow I am going to a birthday party. That of my 2 year old niece... Crazy.

Take care critters X

hello chums

i intend to write enough here for it to qualify as an update, even if it means including painfully boring details. chances are, i will probably start boring myself before long and give up. in the mean time, here goes...

its thursday the second of june, which is bad, as i have not profited from the half term break at all. in terms of exams i have completed all my french and geography modules.

the week ahead is set to be tough. i have a maths mechanics paper on tuesday. unfortunately i never quite came to terms with the majority of the syllabus. on wednesday i have 3 hours of spanish followed by 3 hours of chemistry. the spanish is going to have to not be revised for which i guess i only have myself to blame for. i am going to have to work really hard for chemistry if i want to do remotely well. i do have 15% or so from my coursework so i guess thats a start.

i am pretty tired at present. last night i retired to bed at around 4am. someone had rather nicely washed my sheets for me but i am not a very competent bed-maker and spent about half an hour trying to put the duvet cover on. i never realised it was such strenuous work; i was genuinely worn out by the time i had finished.

this morning i was up early to have my hair sorted out and spent the rest of the day wandering around london. had an absolute nightmare getting home because tubes are gay. as are thameslink trains. today i purchased a bracelet, its odd but it makes me feel like a gladiator, which is of course a good thing. i have since decided that i am a gladiator.

i vow to do a full day of revision tomorrow. if anyone reading this spots me on msn tomorrow, i urge you to shout at me and make me leave. this applies to saturday (before oxford... yay oxford!) and sunday. and monday for that matter. then theres reuben on wednesday (the tickets arrived today). words cannot express my excitement.

see you later X
