A little less Mercury Point Hell, A little more Leighton Buzzard Love

I dunno if anyone ever reads all this but I enjoy writing so I shall continue. So I’m back from uni for the summer. I’ve been back a full week and only just saw people last night. Being a slightly anti-social person, but I am loving spending a lot of time with the family.

Anyway, it turned out to be a veryyy funny night actually. First Jamie and Lizzie came over and dashed to the shop to get more booze for pre-drinkage. We got there and Lizzie took ages choosing her wine, trying to find the cheapest yet strongest and then picked up the one with the prettiest type-face anyway. Got to the cashier and he looked bored out his mind, so we had a bit of a giggle with him and Lizzie messed up putting her debit card in. She goes “Ahh I failed.” I said “Oh Lizzie your wrecking the system” and bless the little cashier man he replied with “Oh I’ve had far worse people wrecking my system, trust me.”
A line that COMPLETELY set us off and we ended up saying all night. Jamie wandered up totally bewildered as he’d been lingering in the biscuit aisle and didn’t see all this crazyyyy banter. So anyways, then we went back to mine and sat in my room a-drinkin and giggling and watching funny YouTube videos. It got to about half 10ish and we figured we should probably leave for town as it was Jay’s 18th and I well wanted to see everyone J
So yeh we dashed into town, took some ciders for the road and finished em off in the park like old times. Got to the Litten Tree and got I.D’d as usual…one day they will remember us! Had a bit of a boogie and saw LOADS of people. Jay rambled up all drunk and messy, I think he had a pretty good night. I saw Aaron and Charlotte that I used to work with, and I totally adore J I really miss our Saturdays at Woolies. Had a natter with Callum about his girlfriend who’s living in Canada or something, he’s always on some venture. I saw Jenny P who’s now gone BLONDE. Did you know its blond if it’s a male and blondE if it’s a girl. Interesting. I think it’s a French thing. Errmm, there were a lot of people. But then Litten closed and we trecked it home. Didn’t go to Kebab Ye or make any food when I got in. So I’m pretty proud of me. When I got in I went on Facebook…obviously. And came up with what I believe is comedy genius. Of course I was very drunk…so taking that into account here’s what happened.
Pierce had done one of those lame-ass quizzes on FaceyBook where it tells you what you already know about yourself. He’d done one that tells you what sort of drunk you are. His had come up with Talkative drunk. I believed this to be wrong and this is what I wrote back.

Me: quiz iz broke *you’re the Virus Drunk, You tend to down gallons of alcohol without thinking. You talk legibly for about an hour before descending into mindless gibberish. You mutter for an extended amount of time about viruses, X Men and Star Wars. When friends come to your aid, you thank them by spitting on/at them and whining. Can often be seen, vomiting into kitchen sinks, throwing phones around and falling asleep in beds that do not belong to them.

Him: says the woman who shouts at me really loudly, then goes, *I love you pierce* REALLY quietlyI did try to find answers to suit it but it came out with that so yes it's broke.

Me: I think that was a very good response considering I am very drunk right now so yes I win

Him: and I’m sober, I’m in rehab atm


Him: Oki I will let you win if you comment this by 10am tomorrow

Me: That’s not fair

Him: Oki Oki since I love you, by 1pm

Me: I like those odds.

In hindsight, that’s not that funny. But I thought I was being clever. I did not comment by 1pm, I did still win though.

Today has been beautiful. Haven’t done a whole lot but life is seriously good right now. Got summoned to the garden where my parents were having a domestic about how big the new patio should be… how high to put the new coat rack and whether a cabinet would go in the bathroom or not. Twas very amusing to me. Went to the shop with me mam and Belle, and got DRENCHED, but it was that gorgeous rain that’s sunny at the same time. Completely soaks you through. It’s the only rain I like. But its soooo perfectly English summer. So now I’m copying some new CDs to iTunes and I’m about to fix some dinner. Who knows what mad excitement tomorrow shall bring… :D
Belle has just come in and is demanding that I help her, she’s broken the telly and it’s gone all green. Now she’s threatening to saw her arm off if I don’t help her. I can’t think of any better incentive not to help her…

Listening to: Cheated Hearts – Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Happy American Mother’s Day World!

I did have a minor freak-out when I checked PostSecret this morning and they were all about Mother’s day. Till I realised we’d already had ours here in Britain. It’s one of those days, I feel. I did, however text my Mum anyways.

PostSecret got me a bit teary today. Made me miss my mum a lot! Wont be long till I can move out of Merc and back to Leighton for the summer.

So I begin yet another day of writing and drawing my dreams out. They’re fun the first time round but get mighty dull when you have to think about them over and over, every time a little bit gets forgotten till I’m left with last night’s ‘Yeh so I hid behind a sofa and got shot in the shin’. Not much interesting matter to dissect in that.

My presentation for this work is due on Friday. And in theory I can get it all done by then. But then there’s the threat of Facebook… and YouTube and FML… and… any other website I get linked to. The latest distraction I have found is something called Growing Up Cullen. To feed my obsession with Twilight, I was looking at a very funny reviewer of the books ( when one of her subscribers linked to this.

It’s just genius. Two girls are essentially role-playing as the Cullens and what it’s like to be in their house. Some one suggested it should be made into a Sitcom called Growing Up Cullen and that’s how it began. It portrays Edward as a repressed, obsessive clean-freak with a million hobbies (including scrapbooking and pottery) that Emmett and Jasper take the piss out of. Anyway, it made me cry with laughter and if my flatmates didn’t think I was a freak before, well they do now. What made it so much more hilarious was when the Midnight Sun drafts were released by Meyer, it was pretty damn accurate. Not quite so extreme. But I really hope she publishes it, Emmett is really shown to be a great character in it. I think he’s my favourite.
So, Twilight aside. Things have been a bit dull lately; I’m limiting myself going out because of money and this damn project. I really need a new book to read, might re-read the Dan Brown books before Angels and Demons comes out. Or I’ll find some cheap His Dark Materials copies

and have a look at them again. I really want to be in Les Miserables again! It was only a school production before, but ah it’s such an amazing show, and the songs are just beautiful. And no. This passion for musicals hasn’t just been revived since that charming Susan Boyle appeared on Britain’s Got Talent.

I’m a little worried about all these internetty things I keep signing up for. Got a LiveJournal yesterday and before that it was Twitter… then I remembered I also have a DeviantArt and lord knows what else.

I shall never succumb to Bebo though.

I’d better get back to work. Apologies for the pointless post.

My late update of a weekend in March.

14th March 2009
Listening to- Regina Spektor – Fidelity.
Hello again world :]
I had a beautiful weekend and I wanted to blog it before I forgot the details!
Friday night I received a text from my Lizzie S saying, “I miss you x”. I miss her tooo! So I said if there is anyway she can get her ass here for the weekend then she should cause its gonna be a goodun. She said she’d try but she had a lot of work to do and wasn’t too keen on making the looong journey on her own.
Then Saturday afternoon I got another text saying that her, Josh, James and Jamie were all coming up to see me! How effing brilliant! Turns out she was on her way to pick up Hurley (Josh) when she saw James walking along one of the many country roads. She told him to get in the car, and he did, he said where are we going, she said Southampton, he said cool. Then they called Jamie and he was up for it toooo!
So in the mean time me Naybee, Tasha and Milks had gone to this cheaaapy cheap alcohol shop and bought looooots of the funstuff. I went back to my room and blitzed it, tidying and clearing up and whatnot. We all gathered in Nay’s room, Me, Nay, Tasha, Jen H, Alice, Emma, Milks, Sammy Dee and Sean. My mum and sister rang me a couple of times and for a moment I was well worried! It has been a while since something bad happened and when my family call me that frantically it usually means, as Milks put it, “Some crazy shit is going doooown.” But all was fine! They were at Elbow with my dad and Nick. Ahh  They had called to play me my favourite Elbow song (One Day Like This, obviously). THEN I got a call from Josh and they had arrived!!!
I belted outside to meet them and James gave me a huge hug, before everyone else jumped on me toooo. Went back upstairs, and showed Jamie and James round the flat, not that it’s that huge, but still its polite to give a tour. I told them I’d already had three drinks…so they set about catching up. Then we went back over Nay’s cause she text saying they were playing ring of fire. I knew we should have gone over earlier, Milky had already set up his stupid wank rules. Ours are better, or to be more precise, My rules are better. Anyway. Party was fabulous, My lot got on well with the Southampton lot. The lads seemed to bond particularly well. Jamie got real ill and had to lie down in my room but he seemed fine the next day.
So yes, Sunday. We all woke up insanely early, and lolled around reading PostSecret and bantering over music. Josh cooked up some potatoe-ish dish for lunch, that was lovely. I really need him to be my personal chef here at uni. I well miss his cooking. We took a veeryy long time to decide where to go, but eventually made for New Forest. It was beautiful, wild horses everywhere. Then I nearly trod on a tiny little bird in the grass. Me and Liz bent down to take photos and have a look at why it wasn’t flying away. It didn’t seem to be hurt, but then it died right in front of our eyes. It was so sad! The boys said we photographed it to death. 
Then we got abit bored of the forest and decided the beach was next! Coming out of the carparky bit was a crazy cause there were like forty cows also wandering down the road. Very surreal.
By James’s mad instructions we some how made it to a beach and had a lovely walk along it. We found a spot away from the few other people on the beach. Liz, Hurley and James stripped off and went right in the sea. I was dying to go in myself, but for one thing I was all ill and coughy. Another I didn’t really have the time to whip my clothes off, they went in for about a minute and came running out again. It was bloody freezing!
Then we sat around, and had a natter about stuff and how we should come back when its warmer cause it’s a nice spot. It was getting pretty dark and chilly so after a quick stop at a chip shop on the way, we decided to head home. Oh my goodness…then Liz accidently ran over a rabbit! I just dashed out into the road..But my oh my was it a bad day for the animal kingdom to be around us.
Lizzie dropped me at Merc, and I completely crashed out on my bed. I don’t usually do so much in a day! I’m not quite used to it…hah…
Anyway, twas fabulous to see my beauties, I love them ever so much!!!

Catch you lataz Kiddaz xx

'Cause waking up is hard to do.

I woke up just now...still drunk from last night.

After leaving the flat all I can remember is playing the 'Wasted Weekend Drinking Game'.

Basically...My friend's band the Zero Zeroes have a song called Wasted Weekend, and the idea is to drink everytime they mention anything about drinking.
Here are the lyrics:

Wasted weekend

I just wanna get drunk
Go down the pub with all my mates
Go drink some beer life's fucking great
I just wanna get drunk
Cos when I'm drunk, it feels so right
I wanna do it every single night
I just wanna get drunk
When I'm pissed it feels so great
That's why i do it every Saturday
I just wanna get drunk

I just wanna go and get wasted, just make a fool of myself
Keep drinking till I can't feel feelings, another wasted weekend

I'll drink some beer, I'll drink some wine
I'll drink some petrol it's all fine
As long as it gets me drunk
I'll drink in a pub, I'll drink in a park
I'll drink in a hole but its well dark
I just wanna get drunk
I'll spend all the cash I've earned today
I wouldn't have it any other way
I just wanna get drunk


I'll drink from a bottle ill drink from a can
I'll drink from a boot like a homeless man
I just wanna get drunk
Ill sell my soul, become a queer
I need some money just for a beer
I just wanna get drunk
People say it kills brain cells
......burn in hell!
I just wanna get drunk

I was utterly bungalowed.

Life at the moment.

Listening to: Mint Royale – Blue Song ^_^.

I noticed that Naybee has been updating her blog way more than I have. And as I have an essay due in a couple of days I figured it was a perfect time to procrastinate and catch up. To regain my crown as Queen Procrastinator.

So much and so little has been going on at the moment. Pierce came over last night, stayed till nearly four, which explains why I am still so effin tired today. That boy does make me laugh, we talked about Pokemon for far longer than is healthy. Uni is turning me geekier by the second. We also talked about his impecable taste in clothes and women (...). And how we should have a party next week as everyone is poor and it will good to get everyone together as weve all got friends down.

I've been helping Lizzie S with her work at the moment cause I don't wanna do my own! Why is it so much more fun helping other people than dealing with your own problems. Easier to. She's doing fairy tales, focusing on Little Red Riding Hood, which I love cause I did a project on that meself. so now I'm all inspired to draw not write stuff. I decided to do Alex Pardee for my essay. When in doubt turn to one you know well. I've just gotta manipulate the essay breif so I can use him. It hurts to type cause I burnt my wrist on the oven. I know everyones sick of me harping on about it, but it really hurts! I'm gonna have some mean scar there. Dayum.

I got a new laptop :) its inexplicably tiny. The size of a Harry Potter book! As adorable as it sounds, its a bitch to type on and its a Linex or something. Which despite what the shop-guy said, does NOT let me open my old files from a memory stick. I knew I shouldn't have trusted him with his nineties style gelled hair. Ew.

I borrowed Twlight off Nay and OH MY GOD. Read in one night.I got tingles and butterflies just reading it, I havn't even got that off a real person in ages. Daaaayum. Not to sound to like an obsessed fan girl and I know i'm a little late to jump on the bandwagon...but...I'm definatly in love. Nay wont let me have the next book till I finnish my ever so dull art essay. She's a good mum to me ahaa.

Okay I'm gonna get back to my essay now, enough of this writing aboout doing stuff.


Ciao for now xx

First Ever Blog. Snow Day!

Written - 4th Wednesday February. 2009.
Listening to: The Cure – Friday I’m In Love.
This is my first everrr blog. So I wanted to write about a well good day to start. So I’m gonna write about our first snow day in Southampton. Ah yes, the snow that is currently causing destruction around the country.
SO I woke up at 8 o’clock, which is mighty weird for me, as I didn’t have uni till 11, what an insane hour to wake up.
Any way I had a text from my good buddy Alex, ‘Do uni-kids get snow days?’ I was confused...till I looked out my window and turned into an 8 year old child. The whole car park was covered snow!! After being so envious of the rest of the country, we’d finally got our snow! I immediately texted people to inform them of my exstaticness. My best friend and neighbour here at uni, Naomi, texted me, ‘RING ME!’
I did and found out that UNI WAS CANCELLED. OH frabjous day! We decided to get dressed in record time and make the most of it before the short guy in the ugly blue fleece melts all our snow. I called Jen H and made a frantic message that we simply MUST go out and play in the snow. We dressed all wintery and cute in gloves and hats and booties and all that. Met Jen and decided to head to the docks. On route we had to cross, what we have dubbed- Rape Bridge. It was all frozen and slippery, so it took us a good 10 minutes to get over it. I told Nay “If that dog can do it, you can!” she said “A dog has four fucking legs.” We EVENTUALLY got over that dreaded bridge and had a bit of a play in the park. We made a snow man, then decided it should be a snow-woman, this then changed into a snow-Pikachu. This, in my opinion, is pure and utter genius. We had a good laugh and met Alice and Gaz, who looked all cute and coupley. They laughed at our attempt to make a realistic Pikachu. If its possible...I don’t really know my way around this place yet, but I will attach a picture of its beauty! We saw an menacing looking group of kids edging our way and we didn’t want to get caught up in a snow ball fight that we knew we’d loose...But yeh, then we went to Tesco, cause Jen announced she was hungry and...Well...I am always hungry. THEN we went to the docks. Which was nice J. We talked about sad films and books for a while. We fell about a lot cause it was sooo very icy everywhere. And Nay made her very first snow angel! She’s very proud! After our adventures our feet were getting pretty darn numb. We decided to head back to the flat to warm up. Nay made us toast and a cuppa and we cosied up with the gypsy blanket and sleeping bags and watched Scrubs.
Later me and Jen ventured out again into the cold to go into town. We looked at clothes we can’t afford, had fun rants about people we don’t like and had a cheeky Maccy d’s in West Quay. We stayed there for hooouurrs till the cleaning staff were all staring at us looking annoyed cause they wanted to go home. Anyway it was a right giggle and a good end to the day. (Except later when I discovered I can’t handle Kaos sober. But that’s a tale for another time.)
Ciao for now x
