Itís Monday, Top B and Iím not out drinkingÖ (God!! Someone please tell me, have I got a fever?? Do I look slightly pale??) Anyway, the simple truth to this abomination is just the fact that Iím not half as hardcore as I once was, all those years ago when I was just an innocent fresher, complete with halo and wings (memories, lights the corners of my mind, misty watercolour memoriesÖahem, moving on). No, I am tired; shattered to my bones. I feel like a granny complete with grey hair and dentures that pop out. It is not nice!! The only reason I am awake now is because I have realised that unless I pull myself together I will probably fail my degreeÖmiserably. So I am trying to read a book on game theory (game shows are my forte by the way before you say anything Boz), just so that I can escape the humiliation of going to my seminar this week with a look of complete clueless-ness. Like last week, and the week before that. But who would have thought that a game called Ďthe Prisonerís Dilemmaí could be so boring?? Other dilemmas are usually very interesting, like that song by Nelly and Kelly Rowland (ok went off on a tangent there).
And what do I do instead?? I spend my precious time on msn and then I write a truly inspiring piece for my blog. And then I sing along to my music, which is not Barbara Streissand, even though I did refer to one of her songs previously. Iíve got the best taste in the world, even Holly agrees. Yep, she does, donít you Holly??
I think that what Iím trying to do in my sleep-deprived ramblings is to iterate the fact that Iím not out drinking. I am staying in; Iíve got my hoodie on; endless supply of tea but no chocolate or sweets Iím afraid. Nor do I have any vodka. No, today I am teetotal. Not that I ever sit and drink vodka on my own. I may be Swedish, but contrary to everyoneís belief, I am not an alcoholic!! I wasnít the one drinking neat vodka last night, Soph. No wonder you were still drunk when you woke up this morning!! I probably would have been, but when I woke up it was already afternoon. Although, technically I was also drunk this morning, because when I went to bed it was in fact morningÖ(hmm, interesting…)
So yes, Iím here. Not at Top B, like most footballers Iím sure. No, tonight I can feel my wings growing back out; I can polish up my halo and go to bed feeling proud of myself in the knowledge that I havenít spent the x amount of hours doing work that I was intending to do.
Iím just tired. You just canít work when youíre tired, can you??
i've just had the best day ever. i got to campus about half 12 for my footie game, at which point i was told it was cancelled. so i just randomly saw niamh, helen and janine and we decided to go and play some pool. which is basically where i spent most of my day, apart from when we decided to watch the man u vs. chelsea game in THE bar ;) (that game was awsome btw and i didn't realise ana was sooo funny..) so anyway got back from that and then i had to get ready to go to katie's birthday thingy which was such a laugh.. we ended up in boz. niamh, and sophie's house and there was this really random guy who kept coming on to me and we all thought he was really, really weird. anyway i decided to go home at which point people said i couldn't go home on my own (which was like only 3 min away btw) so boz, sophie and tam walked me back to my house and because, obviously being swedish, i had vodka they decided to stay. so now i'm writing this because they just left and i just didn't realise how hilariously funny tam was; i know boz and soph are from previous encounters but…
i'm a bit drunk as well…as they said: 'Malin is always pissed and bollocks!!!
wouldn't change this day for the world…
PS on reflection i think i must find most people really funny
