Guinness marmite on toasted guinness bread.

I had no idea my mother was so into supporting st patrick's when she went shopping this week. This is a very strange breakfast.

Mmmmm. Pancakes. I just made pancakes, only halfway through the second batch belatedly realising that pancake day is in fact next week.

Oh well. Pancakes. Mmmmmm.

Ranting to thin air may look extremely silly and initially feel weird, but it's actually very cathartic.

I wish my handwriting was legible.  Not for the benefit of the teachers, not for anyone trying to read it, but sometimes, it'd be nice to be able to read it myself.

Notes from English: "....no gap between implied author and narrator, no attempt to....[4 illegible words here]"

It's either 

 - dishing with the exes,
 - dusting with the oices,
 - closing wish the vices,
 - fishing via the exit,
 - disting vlish the exices,
 - destiny with the ices, or
 -  fisting with rice.

or a combination of them.  This wouldn't worry me so much, if it weren't for the fact that none of them make sense within the context of the sentence.  Or, well, make sense.

This coursework is not a happy tale.

I know I'm day a late, but I think everyone should have a look at this this, not just because it's hallowe'en themed and to do with harry potter slash, but because it's hideously well illustrated as well.

In response to safebox's recent cute and fluffy animals post, I present something that is unconventionally cute and slightly hairy.

Aw! Look at his opposable toesies and the bemused wombatty look.

Ah, he cheers me up.

Okay. Revised birthday-list time.

Birthday list

 - Makeup from MAC/Urban Decay
 - Earrings/general sparkly things never go amiss.
 - interesting tights/socks/hosiery in general
 - Bras! I do not have enough of them. (34a/32b)
 - '...and the circus leaves town' by Kyuss
 - 'Mesmerize' by SOAD
 - Darren Housholder - self-titled
 - If not, just forsake all of that, because I rather like this jacket , so maybe you could all get me that and that'd eliminate quite a lot of collective effort.

Right. I think that's it. I need to go and wash the dye out of my hair now; I forgot about timing and now I'm paranoid that I'm going to burn my scalp off.

Before I forget, I had the  weirdest dream last night, and it was weird because it was strangely realistic and loads of people I knew were in it. Basically, it was last year, and the hustings for head girl were taking place near the shed in the games field (obviously). However, to get head girl, one first had to give a speech, etc, but then embark upon a very long run.  I was going to partake in this run, but I thought I'd have months to train for it, whereupon someone informed me that it was taking place at half past 2 that afternoon, so I couldn't be fucked, but charlie and sophie could  So I went off and organised a puppet show with sarah blankfield, which was met with much critical approach, and I was extremely upset.  Later that day, it was ascertained that sophie was head girl, as she had run 74 miles. 

Then, I had to do my puppet show again, still in the sports field, and people ignored me, and I sulked a lot.  And then, suddenly, we were all in newquay and in a fancy dress shop looking for pirate outfits. And I got these kick-arse leather boots and a plastic sword and char got a funny moustache disguise and katy bought a ship in a bottle.  Sophie had mysteriously disappeared at this point, maybe recuperating from her run? And then we went back on the coach which was driven by Amy C's mum. We were sitting in the backrow looking all suspicious, and someone took our orders for food, so that was a bit hogwart's express-y.  But we had to change our currency into percy pigs to buy our tea and cakes with, and sarah m threw a strop at this, and not only stole my money but also chucked my cigarettes (curiously marlboro lights) out the window.

I wouldn't normally write all this down, but it was really weirdly realistic, and when I woke this morning I felt strangely discomfited that I hadn't actually got any kick-arse leather boots.

I CAN'T FIND THE TWEEZERS.

This small fact is proving to be very stressful. I hate packing for holidays. But yay, soon I will be somewhere hot.  It's a bit annoying that england is also choosing to be hot when I go away, but at least I will have a pool.

On friday, went to see the chili peppers. Got there about 12 and went round side with other people to queue and we were like "yay! we're the first 3 people here! hxc." But then, we asked a security dude and he told us to go round the other side. Where there were about a hundred people. Bugger.

And then I waited for 5 hours. This was boring as everyone around me seemed to be foreign so I couldn't even exchange witty repartee with anyone. Or whatever. I also decided not to drink anything as a) the queue for the toilet was massive b) it's hard to climb over barriers in a  skirt and c) I wasn't sure if the weird foreign people would save my place.

Then char came at 5ish and we waited a bit more and they let us in, then more waiting, etc.  Because I'd been waiting for ages there was a golden circle thing which we were in (we have wristbands and everything) which proved to be useful later.

Support band !!! was pretty weird but kinda cool. Ravey , drum'n'bass kinda stuff. And the spazziest dancing EVER from the lead singer. You thought the guy from the Rakes was weird? You should see !!!. They're blatantly all taking lots of drugs and having wild gay hedonistic orgies.

They only did about 4 songs 'cause they were all quite long, but they can't've been on longer than half an hour.  At this point, I started to regret only having half a cheese sandwich at lunchtime and drinking practically nothing all day in the sun as I started to feel very hot and strange and char looked kinda the same. Some nice people gave me some water but then I sat down on the floor and some not so nice people decided to knee me in the small of the back.  Even though we were only 4 people from the front char and I decided that if we stayed, we would probably die, so we went to get pizza and water. It was very good pizza.  

Then luckily, 'cause of the golden circle thing, we could still get relatively near the front. YAY!!!!!  When they came on, John was wearing a brown velvet suit, and Flea a pink lycra all in one thing. Snazzy. They started with can't stop, then dani california, then scar tissue, then I can't remember. They didn't play much from new album which is surprising considering there's two discs worth of material there. Played a track from uplift mofo party plan even which was random but cool.  When they played it there was a guy dancing in front of us who was topless and really needed to pull his trousers up.  It wasn't pretty. 

One of the highlights was when John did How deep is your love, a la Beegees.  He started with the 'I love your eyes in the morning sun' line and then stopped. Yes, cheesy music gets to even john frusciante. It was very good though and he did the high bits perfectly, naturally.

Then at the end we met mo and took the train together.

There have been far too many ands and thens in this entry. Still, I better get all the bad grammar etc out of my system before I force myself to plunge into various deep and meaningful books on the beach. Bah. 

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. I need to exfoliate my legs, I think.  I will see you all in ten days, have fun!!!xxxxx

Bloody hell. Bikinis are such a rip-off. I can't believe I just paid £30 for 2 pieces of material that hardly exist.  Although it's my fault for not looking properly in the changing room; I was more fascinated (well, horrified) by the way the lights turned my skin a lurid shade of yellow and invented cellulite that I swear hadn't previously existed


However, that's just bad lighting (I hope).  What really bothered me, stuck in a mirrored cubicle, is my profile. I didn't know I looked like that from the side!  Why didn't anyone tell me?!?


I also bought some deep+meaningful books and poetry today to read on the beach. As well as the obligatory chick-lit and Neil Gaiman.


Well. I suppose that's all that's been happening in my life that anyone wants to hear about. Actually, I've recently gotten into watching Family Guy - it's really funny!!! Does anyone else like it?


CHILI PEPPERS ON FRIDAY, WOOYAYHOUPLA!
