How time flies

Hmm I have so much to catch up on. Namely
Sunday night: The Little Flames supporting The Longcut.
Monday: Coffee with Tony ;) back up from London, some work, The D4 and Blues Explosion supporting The Hives and then the end of Top B when everyone else was wasted and I was stone cold sober.
Tuesday: gym, work and then dinner and telly at Tess's.
Today: Black Country Living Museum with Mill followed by dinner at my home house and The Apprentice (GRRR to Saira) then drove back. In whole day we only heard Foos once, grr again.
Tomorrow: gym, work and Colly,
Friday: work, B'ham and Crash, Saturday: a day of gig madness, but more about that later…

Mr. Blair

So I will write about this properly later, but listen to Radio 1 at 5.45pm to hear Tony Blair being grilled by Newsbeat panelists (that's us, i.e. me and them). See if I ended up on the cutting room floor or not! Either way, it'll be worth the listen.

How to hug : a guide for the male of the species

Now don't get me wrong, some of you are great at hugs and cuddles, some of you are only great at hugs and cuddles with the person you're going out with. Here is my handy guide to hugging:

  1. If you are much taller than the person you are hugging, bend down! She doesn't want to have to stretch her toes to the limit and also she doesn't want a mouthful of your chest.

  2. Hug like you mean it! None of this half-hearted bollocks. A hug is meant to be comforting or affectionate, not an expression of how little you want someone to get close to you and if they're your friend, you shouldn't have a problem with physical proximity!

  3. The key to a good hug is sustaining it. If you don't want to make the hug-ee feel somewhat rejected, there must be a decent length hug. Basically, don't release someone absolutely immediately that they've managed to get their arms round you.

  4. Cuddles: If you wish to administer a cuddle or you quite want a cuddle, hug should be greatly extended in length. Also, this is the only condition under which you're allowed to not bend down if your hug-ee is shorter than you. They can be allowed to nestle their head somewhere that it naturally falls.

N.B. If you have a better half of any kind, this all still applies. If they can't hack you hugging your friends then tough luck.


RaW Top 30

Well hello there folks, I am very sleepily in cheesy chart DJ mode, so imagine a big grin with an audible twinkle on me teeth.

Tune in today for the RaW Top 30, as voted by you! The Listeners (sort of). The chart features such artists as Snoop Dogg, Oasis and Lindsay Lohan (yes, Lindsay Lohan girl with the boobs).

Listen on 1251am or online

3pm to 5pm

Also, if I have time, I will be playing you bits of my Hot Tips…if I can find them all.


A little something…

… from a friend, that is amusing to read:

"Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easier to get….. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

As for the men… Men are like a fine wine.

They start out as grapes and it's up to women to stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

Share this with other women who are good apples, even those who have already been picked.

Foo Fighters – Best of you

Yuh huh, I'm that lame. Additionally, brain deadness makes the world go round (though this ain't no Joss Stone. Don't insult The Grohl.)

I've got another confession to make,
I'm your fool.
Everyone's got their chains to break,
Holdin you.
Were you born to resist, or be abused?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Are you gone and on to someone new?
I needed somewhere to hang my head,
Without your noose.
You gave me something that I didn't have
But I'm no use.

I was too weak to give in,
Too strong to lose.
My heart is under arrest oh yeah
But I break loose.
My head is giving me life or death
But I can't choose.

I swear I'll never give in,
I refuse.

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith, it's real, the pain you feel, the trust you must confess.
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
oooooooohhhhhhh

ooooohhhh
ooooohhhh
ooooohhhh
ooooohhhh

Has someone taken your faith, it's real, the pain you feel,
The life, the love, you've got to heal.
The hope that starts
The broken hearts,
The trust you must confess.

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

I've got another confession my friend,
I'm no fool.
I'm getting tired of starting again,
Somewhere new.

Were you born to resist
Or be abused?
I swear I'll never give in,
I refuse.

Is someone getting the best the best the best the best of you?
Is someone getting the best the best the best the best of you?
Has someone taken your bait, it's real, the pain you feel, the trust you must confess.
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Exams make badness

So I'm so tired that it feels my fingers aren't matched up with my brain.

Also I'm annoyed at myself cos something kickass (well, in Biology terms) that I so could've included in an essay in my exam today, completely didn't connect with the topic in my brain, so I wrote about something else instead, and not as well. What a muppet.

I'm also annoyed at myself cos though I could've slept earlier, I wanted to feel like a normal person who doesn't just sleep and revise and fill the gaps wirh eating, so I did fun relaxing things instead of sleeping relaxing things * sigh * when will I learn
