Side notes

The Maximo Park album is indeed awesome, shaping up to be one of my favourite albums of the year I think. I may have reviewed Employment for the Beeb but I've not listened to it, or missed it, in weeks. I was listening to it and warbling along feeling quite grown up being home alone at my home house, which is very weird seeing as I'm never alone in it in the evenings (my parents have no social life). However, while I was doing this, I was chopping mushrooms and had left garlic in what I thought was a moderately hot pan. All of a sudden, the eyes burn for the second smoking today (oil overheating incident at Chesham earlier) and hayfever is fucking me in the eye also (somewhat literally).

Hmm, downstairs still smells like burnt garlic.

I also took too much glee in changing stuff round in the kitchen cupboards, which will piss my dad off and is in petty retaliation for him changing my room round whenever I'm absent. ("I made it how I would have it").

Crash was really cool on Friday (and was in honour of Jamie 's 22nd birthday. I had loads of fun, both inside the union and on the piazza beforehand and in The Funk House afterwards. While on the piazza I was trying to coax everyone into the union so that I could dance. Being as alcohol is cheaper outside the union, they invented music for me instead, only it was the kind that required a top hat and cane and tap shoes, none of which I actually had, so I had to have imaginary ones (and nearly fell flat on my face as there was an aerial liquitab over where someone had been sick...hmm, kinda glad I didn't fall over). Anyways, much dancing WAS done in the end and there are some amusing photos over at Milly's blog , I've not uploaded mine yet on account of doing STUPID PROJECT.

Alas there are no photos of Milly and I going mental to Best of You (after I'd coaxed them into playing that instead of Breakout [I think] or All My Life) and I think we scared everyone with our mass of long, loose hair, sreaming of words and going all over the place. It was definitely good exercise! Woke up with a sore throat though - this was also courtesy of Ramshackle favourite RATM - Killing In The Name Of which was much loved.

Also a question courtesy of Mr Glass: Do you have a natural rhythm?


Don't waste your life, just go outside

So, in the immortal words of Signal and Sign by Maximo Park, Don't waste your life, just go outside.

It sounds so simple but, as always, the whole easier said than done thing comes into play.

I've been very pondersome today, just generally. I'm not sure I can even collate what I've been pondering about….just bits here and there. So I'll let you decide what it is to you…
