6:41 pm - 79s not as funny
So yet again I kinda forgot LJ exists for a while. I guess its just that all the things that used to bring me here hold different things for me now. Or something like that...

LJ tells me its been 79 weeks since I last updated, if only id been on 10 weeks ago, that would have amused me rather a lot.

I think most of you on here are on facebook these days, so I guess its better to keep up on there.

Dont really know how I feel about LJ anymore. It used to be a vent for me in dark times, and it served its purpose... its odd that a website feels like a shadow hangs over it, if that even makes any sense.

Hope everyones well. I could ramble on about how things are for me, but it doesnt feel like the right time just now. Its been very odd being back on here.

6:15 pm - Im not dead!

Im not dead! These are the only posts I seem to make these days, once about every 3 months, I dont know why but I always forget about LJ. But then I only ever used it for ranting and I havent done that much lately, which is ironic as its probably when I most should have.

So anyway.

Im taking a year out from uni. There are lots of reasons, but Im not saying them on here. Still House and job hunting. Thats about it.

Infact, I think we've all been quieter on here, and by all, I mean, Darren and Marv.... basically.

Take care all!

stupid 2.30 am craving for roast dinner is keeping me awake. i may be forced to cook when when i return to the worcestery place later today if i still want one.

I still really want my tongue pierced and a wrist tattoo. its been on the books for years now, just sometimes on my mind more than others, now is one of those times. i am thinking maybe the tongue piercing in 2 weeks, ie after my presentation. we shall see. 

going to attempt sleep some more......now

morning all.

is it wrong that i bought a shampoo because it contained Bergamot, and the word clearly amused me?

Which brings me to my next point, what do you call something in a shampoo? Cause ingredient makes it sound like ive been reading the ingredients on the back of every bottle, when i wasnt, its just tangerine and bergamot shampoo. so i was thinking maybe its flavour? but that makes it sound like im gonna eat it. which im not, just to be clear.

for that matter, what the hell is a bergamot anyway? google time!

well. i feel enlightened. according to good ol' wikipedia, a bergamot is a type of citrus fruit, somewhere between an ordinary orange and a grapefruit it would seem. heres the entry if youre that bothered http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergamot_orange

i am up at this crazy early time in order to sort everything out before i go home for easter. ive got lots to remember to take back. one of those trips.

It was brought to my attention the other day that tomorrow is good friday and that some weeks ago i foolishly agreed to do a sponsered walk. its an annual thing, missed it last year cause i think i was working good friday, but id done it every year for about 4 or 5 years before that, and id done a cycling one too, and boy did i clock up some mileage that day. this one tomorrow is 15km, always is. thats 9.3miles, cause i like miles better, im awkward cause i prefer metres to yards, but miles to km. heh heh. so yeah, if you wanna sponser me, ill let you know what the charities are tomorrow when i find out, then let me know.

Right, i think the washing up beckons. if i do it now itll be dried by the time im ready to put it away.

also im giving my brother my old phone tomorrow, so if anyone hasnt changed to my new number then do it, or i wont get anything you send me.

toodle pip!

5:56 am - Popcorn..... IN THE EAR!!!
So Marvy one!!!

i did some back checking and basically, the whole popcorn thing started on your lj on the 23/11/2004 when we made 57 comments! it was the referenced on the 25/11/04, 1/12/04, on the 15/10/05 you decided minstrels were his medication and renamed them medstrals.

on Darrens lj it comes up on the 27/6/05, 13/7/05, 2/8/05 when we made 44 posts, the 29/8/05. and thats not all of the times its mentioned, just amusing ones.

Yes i am a genius for finding them. basically went through yours and darrens ljs looking at any with over 4 comments until i found it. yes im that sad, but ive been working on uni crap all night.

Anyway, hope that makes you happy.

in other news, why the cocking hell is it so frickin cold in this room?!?!

What joy!

Also, you all seem to be all discworldy while ive been away, and i was thinking i should get in on some of that! so im Vimes. Top Notch. I do love the Vimesy.

And now that all sense of... well... sense.... and grammar and whatnot have departed me, i am going to the sleeping place. i shall see you all again soon.!

You scored as Commander Samuel Vimes. You are Samuel Vimes! Captain of Ankh-Morpork’s city Watch! You are a knight, married to the very wealthy, noble lady Sybil Ramkin. You often walk the streets at night, and are able to tell where you are by the feel of the cobbles under your boots. You always do what is right – that is, what needs to be done – to keep the city safe, even when it seems bad.

After you die...

After death, you will burn forever in the fires of hell. Or much more likely, you will be put into a room with two other people for all of eternity. Because hell is other people.

Take this quiz at QuizGalaxy.com

so it looks like im gonna have to take 5 modules this semester, were only meant to do 4. absoloute bitch to be honest. im not best pleased. so we shall see. had christmas meal for work last night, was dreading it but it was actually a good laugh.

Recently purchased meself an mp3, just a cheapy argos job but its been a mighty fine move so far, and its how im now listening to edguy despite being in unidoooom. theyre sneaking up on whitesnake for being my favourite band, the more i hear them the more i just love em to pieces.

off to the boys after me lecture tomorrow. will be nice to have a minibreak. its been an intense start to a semester i must say.

had an option to move in with a couple of mates. couldnt do it, the price was just too much more than what im at now. so im stuck where i am for now.

anyway, thatll do it for now. hope everyones good. catch you soon.

uni has shiny shiny new computers.

i made freshers give me all their money, and they did so then i wore a bucket on my head for them. yup yup. it was fun. only had it on like half an hour cause they took ages to give me lots of money.

still, ive been up since 7 and the days gone fast. i havent got much money now thanks to today, but hopefully i can grab something for dinner with my £2 co-op voucher. i need a job. textbooks are gonna bankrupt me, if it wasnt for that id be ok. all my food went off yesterday so i best go get some more...

in other news my engagement ring is pretty, and people are reacting odly to the news, most are happy, some are strange. bye bye!!!

again with the amusingness!!!!

http://www.jeffiscool.com/flash.html is a great site. i particularly like end of the world, and she blocked me. but its all good.

i have pain, this is, infact, not nice. however, im watching thunderbirds (the program not the shitty blasphemous excuse for a film) i still absoloutly love this program, and i love bbc2 for showing it.

i drove yesterday. dropped my bro off somewhere and then met up with an old mate and went into town in whats shes named the daim-mobile, which is pretty good :), and its aka the Zuki (for the unawake, thats cause its a suzuki) speaking of which i need to go do the damn things tax. should probably do that now. off i go! *swoosh*
