Oh, hello [Jan. 14th, 2007|10:08 pm]
You know I said I was going to quit blogging, or something like that.

I lied.

I'm now back at http://garyandrews.wordpress.com

Thus ends the Public Service Announcement.

For about half an hour my gym eschewed its normal diet of dance remixes of the Kooks and other such chart artists (which is prescisely as bad as it sounds) and played Muse, My Chemical Romance and Panic At The Disco! followed by a bit of Amy Winehouse. It then swiftly reverted to form by playing some godawful dance remix of Savage Garden.

Clearly somebody slipped their CD collection on while the supervisor wasn't listening.

FFS... [Dec. 7th, 2006|02:27 pm]
Oh joy.

I thought my work wasn't doing a secret santa this year.

I was wrong.

So yet again I'm buying for somebody who I know nothing about. And I can't spend more than five pounds.

Honestly, what's the point of this practice? Everybody hates it... nobody ever gets good presents and, more to the point, I've already got all my Christmas shopping done.

Currently I'm working earlies. This means getting up at 4am but home but 1pm. This means I have time in the afternoons, so am tending to cook more. So far my housemates have experienced Honey Glazed Stuffed Butternut Squash, Roast Squash and Aubergene Lasagne, Leek, Mushroom, Pea and Parmeasan Risotto, Cream of Tomato and Butterbean Soup, and a stir fry that has no name but had plenty of asparagus in it.

My housemates will be happy with me remaining on earlier. I, however, would quite like to stay awake beyond 8pm.

Conversation with my houseamte the other night resulted in the question: Your get to organise a mini-festival. 10 bands on the bill. Who would you put on? Death, and splitting up isn't a problem.

Here's mine (from top of bill to bottom):

The Clash
Beastie Boys
Basement Jaxx
Joni Mitchell
Ian Dury & The Blockheads
Buena Vista Social Club
Eliza Carthy

Anybody else think that Torchwood, well, wasn't very good? I was a tad underwhelmed. Next week I'll watch it only if it's raining heavily outside.

In other news, has anybody heard of a group called Burial? Are they any good? I've read a few good reviews and they've been recommended to me, but I have no working speakers, so downloading is a little pointless.

Finally, the internet returns. Now I can use technology to speak to housemate downstairs to request the putting on of the kettle.

That is truly what computer networks are for. More efficient ways of making tea.

Trawling through the IKEA website and local press for furniture on a Sunday is incredibly fucking tedious indeed.

The drinker's lament [Sep. 2nd, 2006|11:51 am]
[Current Music |Nothing - my head can't take loud noise at the moment]

My head really really hurts. I feel rough as fuck. What I really need is a greasy fry-up. I'm never touching another drop again.

(Last assertation only valid until hangover wears off)
