So, this weekend went home for Dad's 50th birthday party and it was actually wickedy! Enough curry to feed a small country. Spent the whole evening chatting to people my parents have known for over 25 years- one guy was with my dad when I was born. Crazy stuff. Went through loads of pictures of my mum and dad in the 70's- he was cool!! Anyway, got me to thinking about the photos I take now…and whether I'll still look at them on my 50th birthday, and who I'll still be friends with etc…
Want to add that song…
Is by Nine Days…and you would think it's called "story of a girl" but it's actually called something else…Nick told me what it was but I've forgotton…any ideas?

Thought it would be cool to make a list of my Top 5 favourite songs of all time…
Now, this is not something to be taken lightly, so the way I propose to do it is to brainstorm songs I like, over a period of time, and then eventually make a shortlist of 5…
Songs songs so far:
Up in Arms Foo Fighters
Good Riddance Green Day
That'll do for now…
Look at them!!
(selected from a wider range…sorry they can't all go on here…just got tooo bored)
yes, it even beats the 'who?' game (cos I'm rubbish at that) and Tara will probably kill me for blogging this before her…actually she might have already done that…oh well, if she has…it'll just be on two blogs!
The game: Bi-words (how many people just lost?) (cheers to TK for knowing the actual name for this)
Most people find it lame, but if you enter into the spirit it's hilarious, particularly if Mr Ian Kreeger is involved. The aim of the game: to find a word that can be split into two words that actually exist.
Again, I emphasis that it sounds lame, but I find it fun, so you should all love and accept me for the loser I am.
Words so far:
skin-head (the original)
and possibly the best one yet, provided by Mr Martin Rittman:
It is hard to convey in a blog just how much this makes me laugh…it's all in the way you say it…and half the fun is getting it wrong…no, Ian, satallite doesn't work…

So, it's day 5 of reading week, all in all it was going very well until this morning when I decided I wouldn't actually get out of bed until 3 hours after planned. However, did spend half an hour of those three reading Crime and Punishment so was sort of working…
As for essays- Aesthetic title is chosen and detailed plan written…just need to get my butt in gear and think of two more titles for Ethics by Tuesday…however, I feel today is destined to be an unproductive day so instead of doing that I'm gonna read a bit more of C+P (p257, of 500 and only started Weds lunchtime) and the rest of the day I will, of course, just watch Debbie's dvds!!

oh the rage…
plan for today was to do a whole days work, including seeing a lecturer at 11.30 to talk about essay titles.
note to self…do not arrange to see a lecturer at 11.30.
It's the worst time ever cos it means you wont actually do anything before hand…and by the time you get home it's lunch time and then you have to do things like write on you blog and then you only really have an afternoon to do work. Said lecturer was ill anyway so when I got onto campus he wasn't even there. Spent about 45 minutes trying to find books in the libarary, got bus home, and here I am, twenty to one having done no work and too hungry and tired to summons up the motivation to start reading Kant. What I want to do is watch the aladdin trilogy all afternoon and then having a wicked time at Rev tonight.
What to do…? Place your votes now…

Tara just told me to write something about her, but instead have decided to write about adults…
I have a new-found appreciation for adults. Firstly, my parents rock. Secondly, adults do generally seem to know a lot more than I do, so thinking I will probably take the opportunity to get to know a few more of them! After all- this is a major major advantage of the chucrh! Also, they *feed * you! Today I went round for lunch at Angela and Dave's and it rocked. Thinking I should get myself a mentor…
Today has been a good day. Did explorers this morning, am feeling like I'm really getting to know the kids, plus it gives me an excuse to make stuff and put it on my wall!
Tara is cool.
