All entries for April 2006
April 30, 2006
I would like to take the time to list all the amazing people i know here, but i know too many so I can't but i'd like to mention 3 who i've had a splendiforous time with lately.
Lu – We all know that Lu is brilliant, but she also was part of a consortium that got me a very awesome birthday present, and she shuffled her plans all round to come to my meal and she's lovely and i've had many a fun game of pool and bite to eat with her lately and I've absolutely thoroughly enjoyed every minute :)
Nikki – Not only did Nikki put in a huge amount of effort organising my birthday and sorting lovely things out for it but she's also quite brilliant at hugs and put up with me alllll day today (possibly at the cost of her degree, and certainly at the cost of her peppers & mince) yey to nikki :)
Sam – Well he was going to end up on here anyway cos he's Sam but HE's put up with me pretty much every day, got me not one but TWO cool batons for my birthday, been extremely supportive, given great advice and always been around when i need a chat and a cup of tea. Possibly the best friend anyone could ever ask for. Period.
As i say, there are many more awesome people I know (Joe, for example, who also got me half a cool present and came to my birthday and is, well, Joe) but if i start praising everyone who's special to me i'll wear the keys off this keyboard.
Hugs to everyone
P.S. Get well soon Owen, if you're reading this!
EDIT: Just realised i meant to write this blog entry to say I went to town with Sam on Friday and forgot to mention it and we went to see ice age 2 (hmmm) and bought stuff, but i just forgot. So there you are!

Woooo, 10 minutes free to write a blog! Awesome! So what have I been up to? Labs, labs, lots of labs and more labs. Actually labs have been going pretty well, minimal explosions, decent looking NMR spectra and generally fun and joyousness. Doubt the same can be said for the "Spinning Disk Electrode" experiment next week but oh well :)
Chorus line is going well, have played "one" one to many times (hahahaha) but other than that it's good. I've even kept in time with Owen for one or two bars (though possibly because i was so out of time i got in sync with him by accident).
My birthday was great! Thanks so much to everyone who texted and face–booked (and said hello on the day) and especially thanks to Nikki, who is too lovely for words and organised everything and got me a present and a card and got another card for everyone to sign and gave me lots of hugs too (and yes Lu, thank you for all your hugs too :)). Had brilliant presents from Joe, Sam, Lu, Nikki & My Housemates as well as money and stuff from other people, so can now Watch house while conducting (with two batons simultaneously) in new boxershorts whilst making an erotic sentance using fridge magnets and playing on a computer game… this i couldn't do before!
Had a lovely curry at the Bombay Palace (when i say lovely, the people there were lovely and it was good fun but the service was PROPERLY SHIT!) with a very well chosen cake (thank Alice & Jamie).
Birthday sort of proved that most of my friends (except Katie and Lorna and Jen) from home are all shit! Not a message or e–mail from any of em, bastards!!!!!
Chorus Line Tomorrow :( I complain about it far too much, i actually really enjoy the band rehearsals (when not being shouted at by Owen, fully deservedly) and most of the choral stuff, just i hate One and the bows and a I REALLY HATE PLAYING A KEYBOARD!!!!!!!!!! breathe but it's ok, Joe has it much worse than me and he keeps on smiling :)
Just a note to say SAMS DRUM KIT IS TRULY AWESOME, OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!

April 09, 2006
So here we are, 1 week of holidays left and i'm stuck alone in the house with 0 food whatsoever about to die of boredom so thought i'd write a nice blog entry.
But i've got nothing to say really…
Have spent the last 2 weeks at work redesigning our corporate image, which was fun but soooo much work! Lots of excitement at the near-dismissal of one of our members of staff for deciding to skive off for an "exam" which never existed… oops!
It's very lonely here now that Sam is gone, one would think i might get round to doing some work, but can i really be bothered? No… no i can't!
The most upsetting thing is that I've lost the memory-stick for my PSP so all my save-games are GONE!! :'( But also it means i can't play it until my new one arrives sigh.
Also if you're reading this and haven't signup for the WO open day concert on saturday yet… DO IT!
