hello . not updated for a while. but now seems like a good time. tonight, through strange circumstnaces, my of withnail and i ended up getting played in the halls bar. me and my chums tried to drink along to it, but even doing only 2 fingers of drink every time they drink is hard enough. i was pretty mashed by11. someones good idea was to go RIGHT into the city to (P)IKON. It was ok, althougth the walk home took a rahter long time. on the way home i was as on the verge of buying from a dealer, only to realise that he was shitting us. i ended up running away from him. which was fun, and an aumsing way to end the night. there was NO-ONE \good to talk to at PIKON, ut you might have had some luck if you were a girl.i'm rubbish at talking to girls. i cant 'chat'anyone up. although i did manage to get an autopgraph from a random girl, as part of a drinking punishment, but she was horrid. i guess the charm worked on here. i think i am at my peak in terms of girls, i would have to drop down if i was single because 1) i wouldn;t get anyone as purdy anymore, now that i am 19 and old, and that i dont know what girls want, which makes me even more rubbiush. nick...

|you don't have to be weird to be wired
Boredom is high at the moment, largely due to having to read Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe. I'm not saying it's a bad book, it's just that the font is so tiny, after an hours reading i have only read 25 pages. Rather demoralising i think you will agree. I'm not looking forward to having to finish it, i hate books that seem like they go on forever. It's only a taste of things to come, Tristam Shandy by Laurence Sterne is even longer. :(
um, Goldfrapp tonight, huzzahs. I am anticipating a real spectacle, a feast for the eyes, as well as some top tunes. All in all should be a cracking night. Added bonus! with Southampton being about 1/10 of the size of London, the main concert venue is only 25 mins from my halls. And with the buses being free, you don't have to be stephen hawking in his wheelchair to work out that in this respect Southampton beats London. If I was to live a 25 minute bus journey from the main venues in London, I imagine i would still be...in central London.I don't think i could hack all the traffic, hipsters, scenesters and general chaos of central London. Southampton is far more relaxed. Apart from the high proportion of slightly mental people here. The other day in Primark a lady was walking through the store shouting at the top of her voice 'I'm always late when i come out'. Strange non?
Even with the heating on full blast, my room is still cold. The windows are ridiculous. To lock them, you have to leave them slightly open. Which 1) is slightly retarded and 2) lets all the cold air in when you leave the room and have to lock the windows. However, it's not as cold as Julia's room. Which is positively arctic.
Apparently i'm amusing when i am annoyed. I should make a career out of it. Getting annoyed and making people laugh. I'm sure it's been done before but my justification is that i'm following the Fall's Mantra of the three 'R's'...Repetition....Repetition...Repetition'. So therefore if i repeat what has come before, it's ok.
I'm going home tomorrow. It's going to be slightly boring. At least it means i will be able to possibly read without distraction. But i'm going to miss J though. So maybe it's not going to be that great at all.

yeh i'm bored. i have been awake for only 12 hours, since i slept until about midday today. although i was woken up a number of times during the night. although julia is back, so scrap the bored sign, i'm really pleased she has come back from home. it's nice to watch her sleep and to be near her. the week of nothing to do until goldfrapp on thursday is so much more nice now she is here. although i have to go home on friday morning, which will be a real drag because i will miss her. sad i know. but i don't care.
my tattoo has gone slightly scabby. apparently it is supposed to do that, so hopefully it will be healed soon so it will be all nice.
i drank too much wine tonight. i feel slightly rough now. and i'm cold. Current Mood: bored
|Saturday, January 28th, 2006|
my new tattoo. people who say a tattoo is like being scratched by a cat are not telling the truth. it hurt. muchly. Possibly one of the most painful experiences of my life. it may not mean something to anyone looking at it, but it does to me. i'm pleased i got it, i was fully expecting myself to wimp out in the waiting room. go me. .i'm a real man now.

this period of doing nothing isn't as bad as i first thought it would be. i'm actually quite enjoying it. i wake up, lie in bed reading, skip breakfast, shower ,make myself a generally unhealthy lunch- an eclair and an orange today (not too unhealthy i guess), go for a walk ( the city today), maybe the docks tomorrow, eat more oranges, go for a run with emma, have my second shower of the day, eat and drink in the evening. karaoke tonight i think, but whether i will be singing is questionable.
life is fun, no responsibilities, nothing to worry about. i'm extra happy because i got a pirate action figure the other day. i took a picture of the pirate. but photobucket is not working. today i got a cool speaker set for my laptop. i was fed up of listening to music that sounded like it was coming through a tin can. it came with a sub-woofer. something to do with bass i think.
livejournal is annoying. i guess people post so that they can have a record of their opinions and also so that others will read their opinions. but then sometimes you can't post things because said people who take an interest will read them. when they are possibly not meant to.this darn internet.time for food.
don't eat yellow snow. Current Mood: happy
so essays done, tests done. i have a week and a half of nothing. any advance plans that i had for this time were ruined by the fact that i had to organise to get a house for next year. that is done. here is pictures of the house i will be living in next year.
its a nice house, my room is tiny. but i only have to pay £48 a week to live there, which seems to be tres cheap. and it has a nice lounge and kitchen and garden, which needs a bit of work though. overall i am happy though. its nice to have it sorted out.
curb your enthusiasm is the greates program created by mankind. i dont care what anyone says. i think it is. that is all that matters. clearly no one is as great as me, so they cannot appreciate it. ende.
i'm not drunk, but tipsy, stupid livejournal does not have that option. i watched resident evil, it was shite. some people were scared. evidently they are silly.au revoir xxx. Current Mood: drunk

Although not exactly a week, (its been monday night to early monday morning) i have gone almost 7 days without a drop of alcohol. here is me happy, with a beer as a reward. ( lookeeCollapse )

the past few days went by in a drug fuelled haze of drinking, debaucherary and excessive perspiration. well some of that is true to a certain extent.not that much anyway.documentation of events will proceed.
a nice group of young men turned into this a few hours later.
today i had lunch at carluccios. it was nice, but i made an adventurous choice with my main course and didnt really like it. i'll stick to being boring next time i think.
a boring night awaits. i think i will go and buy some sparkling white wine and make kia royals (apologies for spelling error i cant be bothered to find out how to do it properly) and get drunk. sounds fun...

|my chlamydia romance
a general update on the last few days. i went to the pub for new year's eve and got pretty damn drunk. however i regret none of what happened. including throwing a rolled up glove at a random bald man, playing who wants to be a millionaire drunk, rampaging through dartford town centre with jim and smoking a big cuban cigar to celebrate the new year. the morning after was a different story. it was an occasion where i wished i was tee-total because i felt as rough as one of the roughest looking people in dartford. which is amazingly rough.
i had a (relative) shopping spree today, buying many nice goodies not just for me. my spree started in topman, where i got a questionable red polo shirt which although i am wearing at the moment, i may never wear again. i justified the purchase because it only cost £8. however, i also got a cracking tie. tis all sparkly and nice.
the second purchase was a mint pair of shoes. they were like a pair i had before but i somehow managed to lose them. how ridiculous. it wouldn't have been as bad if i had just lost one because at least then i would have one shoe and one shoe is better than no shoes right? these shoes are black and cool. made even better by the fact that i got a 10% discount. jackanackanory.
and then i went into virgin and wanted to buy a dvd of something. i ended up picking up millions of different dvds and each time walked to the counter and turned away at the last minute because i decided that i didn't want it. the picked up items included:
the nightmare on elm street box set- which i picked up after watching freddy vs jason the other day and realised that i actually quite enjoy them in a so bad they are good way.
straw dogs- was banned for years, so it must be good right?
secretary- because it was not only good but also a hawt film
the wicker man- because it is good and was only £2.99
napoleon dynamite-again good but i realised i am currently in possession of a copy.
and many more that i can't remember. so eventually i settled for season 3 of curb your enthusiasm which is a clear randomtastic choice. it gets rave reviews everywhere and has a cult following. so i thought i should be in that cult. i watched an episode an it was ok, but i'm not sure that i understand the whole premise of it. it seems that the star plays himself in a made up world full of celebrities. larry david has a david brentish quality about him- kind of unbearable to watch.
i heart cat power. i have been listening to you are free for ages no. but stupid audioscrobbler isn't working so all of my hours of listening are going unrewarding. its such a great album. and the random prescene of eddie vedder is a blast from the past. oh the shame of my previous tastes.
that was long winded.

an interesting day for me. the presents i received ( i before e except after c, remember that one children, might get you out of some tricky situations) were what i wanted, but considered that i purchased most of them, it has to be accepted. however, alcohol in my stocking was a nice surprise. and of course, the new fall album was the best present a boy could have because they are the greatest band of all time ever ever ever.
i met a boy today who is 16, and went to Colfe's- a posh private school-. he has left school and is 'inbetween jobs' and has decided, with his mother's approval, to take a 'gap year'. if at that age he is stuck for inspiration to do even the smallest thing instead of sitting around getting fat then i feel sorry for him. actually i don't .oh how i laughed (internally. i'm not that rude). not only at that but at the fact that he has scary eyebrows. and that his mother was drunk at 12.30 in the afternoon. some people...
one of my relatives has just been released from prison after 7 years inside. i didn't know about this. i wish i did. it would have been an interesting conversations starter. or ender. would have been interesting anyway.
my plans for new years eve are null and void at the moment. nothing seems to be happening. but something should. and will. somehow.

so anyway in my abscence i got roped into going on a boat journey that was supposed to be to singapore to have a small part in a film. little did i know that we were not going to singapore, but instead somewhere called skull island. i spent a lot of time battling the natives and dinosaurs and other creatures. anyway. i'm back now to post my new years resolutions. purely as a record so that i can refer back to them and hope that i have not broken them.
1) find a withnail esque person to live with next year. although i might pass on the rich uncle in the country. but if he had lots of wine....
2) makes friends with people who are not in the same building as me. like on the course i am doing.
3) stop wanking away all my money on alcohol. use it on something more constructive. im not sure what i would spend it on though.
4) have 2 nights a week where no bad substance enters my body. make that 1 actually.
5) read the books that are set. all of them.
6) buy more fall cds- finally a fun resolution.
7) get a first in one essay.
8) stop getting annoyed other little things.
i'm bored now. i reckon i can definitely complete one of those resoltions. guess which one.

i havent updated in a while, but after finding this poem on you_make_lj_suck, i felt obliged to.
Today is two months broken up. It's odd.
I just did it with him a week and a half ago.
He never calls or comes around.
I miss him.
I know I do.
He fucked a midget though.
Bridget the midget.
Can you believe that shit?
I made a bad choice. I know I did.
He has a lot of good qualities though
i love the way this midget fucker still has a lot of good qualities though.
my final year of school has started and things seem to have fallen into the same old routine. theres still the people who have identical, stupid haircut which annoys me greatly and the people who annoy me even without stupid haircuts. i would say that dislike a good 25% of the people in my year, the other 50% i am indifferent about and the remaining 25% i like. as the year progresses though the amount of people i dislike will greatly increase.

got my AS level results today.
General studies -a
they are ok. i was disappointed about the b in english though. i am consoling myself with the fact that they are only 50% of the final grade, so if i work hard next yaer i should be able to bring them up.
although its easy to say that now.
julia only left today and i miss her already. that does not bode well for the next 7 days.
holiday tomorrow. fun fun fun. as usual the weather will be crap.
at least my results are out of the way, which is a huge burden off my shoulders. which makes me happy.
hopefully i am going out somewhere tonight, to celebrate/commiserate with friends.

last night it was too hot to sleep, so i watched rocky V. it was awful. i mean, really bad. however, i did find myself
getting quite involved in it, especially the subplot where rocky's son was trying to make rocky notice him and give him some attention. you see, rocky was spending too much time with tommy gunn, and had been ignoring his son. so his son started doing loads of boxing training and then beat up this other kid to get his coat back. but rocky still didnt notice him. prick.
is there really any need to make 5 films about basically the same thing? every rocky film turns out the same because there really isn't much variation in boxing. apart from the film that has mr t in it. because he is obvisouly the best. i found the coolest mr t sticker the other day in this retro shop in greenwich. it was a mr t heaven.
anyway, back to my point, sequels are mostly unneeded. james bond is the worst example, 25 films of him doing the same things over and over again, but with different ladies. the only sequel that i can currently think of that i like is the third indiana jones film. not the second one, because that annoying child ruins it completely.
i had my first dream about august 19th last night. i was in a library and started kicking things when i looked at the bit of paper. hopefully that won't happen on the day. although, im sure i would find it funny when i look back on it. and it would give me a legacy at school- nick: the boy who went around kicking things when he got his results.
my computer keeps attacking me with random pop-ups and adds dodgy favourite websites to the favourites list. its annoying.
15 years ago today radiohead, as 'on a friday' played their first ever gig.
|Monday, July 26th, 2004|
so my computer is fixed. after 11 days without the internet. i thought i would find it quite hard, but i didnt really miss it that much. it was semi refreshing not sitting in front of the computer, not spending my money on eBay. but then i remember the the most important page on the whole internet, too_much_info. this is why i missed the internet, why 11 days of no computer was very very difficult. its often disgusting, but entertaining. and i likes it.
the hard drive had to be replaced. everything is gone. i am annoyed.
at least its summer now. and i can try and rebuild my shattered computer life by downloading as much crap as possible and trying to get my computer back to its bug and virus filled state of a month ago.
i saw pj harvey!! she was excellent. and she fell on her bum during one song. hehe. best song = meet ze monsta. kind of ruined by the fat sweaty guy who was jumping on my back for the whole concert. he looked like he had down's syndrome, so i could forgive him. but if he didnt have it, then i dont forgive him and wish to kill him. or at least buy him some deodorant, because he was a smelly smelly man.
