he's swearing by the moon again [17 Aug 2007|12:23pm]
[ mood | blank ]

I feel somewhat meh. I should be doing somehting useful with my day off. Laundry. Cleaning. Can't really be arsed.

Got stuff in my head that I am starting to get really fed up thinking about. Its been a good couple of weeks now, and I thought it was going away, but its refusing to shift. Pah. Hate thinking. Nothing psychotic though. Pretty confident its not going to lead to a big fuck up. I like to think I am older and wiser these days.

Maybe I'll draw something. Or just watch tv. I dunno. I hate being all floppy, much rather be proactive, but I really cant be arsed.

(c'mon, hit me)

Nicotine, Valium, Vicadan, Marjiuana, Ecstacy and Alcohol


Feel good hit of the summer for a summer which has not really exsisted.

What have I achieved so far this year?:

Been signed off sick from work for the first time ever.

Painted more than ONE EYE on a picture.

Read all the Harry Potter novels.

Saw my prediction that Casey Stoner would be the one to watch come true.

Seen Nine Inch Nails live.

Incorporated new friends into my circle.

Maintained a hair colour that isnt black for more than 6 weeks.

Found my Patti Smith CD!

I'm particularly excited about the last one, obviously.

if i could take you away... [10 Aug 2007|05:35pm]
[ mood | optimistic ]

wow you lot are prolific.

been painting in ink. much fun. however, as always, going back to it i am too scared to do more than mince around with the paintbrush in case i fuck up what i have already done.


new job. in retail. apart from turning up late and hungover one day, seems to be going ok. odd being a supervisor tho, held to higher standards and all that. got to spend yesterday making up flat pack furniture though, which was fun.

lol, this is a bit of a jim nut gut entry. i dont have that much to say, really.

(c'mon, hit me)

boo [17 Jun 2007|02:21pm]
HA! I'm still alive.

Quit teaching cos it was RUBBISH. Am now deciding what to do with the rest of my life. Or at least find some sort of job. The flatmate appears to be incapable of holding one down. At this rate, she'll piss of all the employers in Aberdeen and no one will want me cos we have the same address. *sigh*

Off shortly to help Laura strip her flat. It has woodchip wallpaper IN EVERY ROOM. So hideous.

Not a MotoGP Sunday, mores the pity. Oh well. Will be cheering Casey Stoner along by shouting at my TV for Donnington next week.

Got whole, consecutive minutes of silent work out of my hyperactive second years today. I am superteach!!!

In other news, have tickets for NIN in, march, is it? On a school night, so will be a mad dash down in the car, then back the same day. woot woot woot.

Got Dee back in the flat, plus dog and cat. We've been obsessivly watching Monarch of the Glen for about two weeks now. Not the pets, obviously.

I think i may hate the cat though. Apart from the fact that he miaows CONSTANTLY from the second I get up in the morning until I leave, he tried to eat my gerbils. Clearly he's not a very good cat though, as one gerbil was hiding and the other was just running round in circles on the living room floor, too fat to get under cover.

Also been very sober of late. Not entirely through choice. Should be oot and aboot on the 8th though, Dee's bday. Am still paranoid i'm going to see the kids out though...

NYC here I come!!!

After 7 weeks of pretending to teach, the nice people at the council have given us 2 weeks off. i love the tattie holidays!!

So i'm off to NYC on Saturday and I can't wait!! Although why, I'm not sure. Because after i've eaten my weight in wintergreen lifesavers I probably wont be in a fit state to do much else!!

Planning on:

The Guggenheim
Museum of Natural History
Central Park
Central Library
The When Harry Met Sally Deli
A nice big American breakfast.

Everything else will get fitted round about.

Oh, and I dyed my hair red.

[ mood | cranky ]

So I'm In Edinburgh, and I'm sitting in, alone, typing into my bloody Livejournal because I'm bored shitless.

I was SUPPOSED to be seeing Dee (who is, allegedly, moving back in with me...but watch this space, the woman has a decision mechanism like a rusty hinge). However, Dee has decided to get drunk, then cry, and complain about the fact that Robbie and Jane are fighting and she feels she needs to be there to "support them"

WTF??? That couple has issues if ever I saw them (and believe me, I get put in the middle of many, many problems). Her being there will not help. In fact, I have a feeling that she may be aggravating things.

So, my plans for the evening have just become a sobbing, drunken mess who is insisting on interfereing somewhere she is not needed. Whoop de fucking do.

So instead, I shall rant here, then possibly go and catch the late showing of Little Miss Sunshine by myself. Although more likely, I'll just go for a drive.

Need to be fresh tomorrow, its the Motegi MotoGP and every point counts between Rossi and Hayden!

(1 pathetic ear attack | c'mon, hit me)

holidays! [23 Jul 2006|05:57pm]
[ mood | awake ]

feels like i haven't posted on here in ages. and i guess i haven't, spart from the occasional rant about the motogp. The only reason i'm not ranting about it today is because it hasn't been on yet - america time difference thingy.

hosting a BBQ tonight at the parentals house (they're away) because i realised not everyone who i'm going on holiday with knows each other yet. figure its better tonight than at 10:30am tomorrow morning outside the sweet shop in moffat.

nothing else, really. finished my teaching course, will be spending next year teaching the little shits at torry academy. whoop de fucking do.

(c'mon, hit me)

[17 Jun 2006|10:10pm]
Catalunya GP tomorrow!!! 12:30 on BBC2. Mr Rossi is still on form in pole position

My future husband Nicky Hayden is in 7th position

and the adorable Casey Stoner (snigger) is in 8th


bless him, he's only 20.

And where is Dani Pedrosa? The midget boy tipped to be the new Rossi? Back in 11th! Ha Ha! Loser.

(3 pathetic ear attacks | c'mon, hit me)

woe is Rossi [21 May 2006|02:26pm]
OMG! What is going on?! Rossi pulling out of 2 races with nil poit??!!!

The world is upside down. Hayden and Stoner were way back on the grid (although had respectable finishing positions, admittedly), and Rossi, despite being back on magic form for most of the race, pulls out! ARGH!!! so frustrating.

It was nice to see the misery dwarf Pedrosa put in his place by the big boys though. Haven't cheered Melandri and Capirossi on like that since..well, ever.

And how gutted did I feel for poor Randy De Puniet, shunted out on the first corner.

Bloody brilliant race!

[ mood | content ]

wow, haven't updated in ages.

never seem to get a chance anymore. erm - whats new? in 4 weeks i'll be finished uni which means in august i'll be responsible for moulding young minds. currently living in kirriemuir, near forfar, for my final placement. teaching shitty book, shitty poetry and animal farm (which the kids think is shitty).

looks like i'm heading to New York in October for my dad's 60th (yay!) and as Jenni is very probably getting married next year the trans-siberian express shall have to be postponed until the following year. ulan-bataar shall just have to wait.

Skool Daze [02 Nov 2005|01:30pm]
So its week 2 of my placement in the even more frozen north, Inverness.

Its actually going pretty well. I'm teaching 3 classes, 1st, 2nd and 3rd year doing film, war poetry and mysterious poetry respectively.

I have now progressed to the stage of hearing "hi miss" everywhere i walk in the corridor (saturday in town should be fun...). Today I was informed that i "shouldn't become a grumpy teacher" and that if i wasn't married i could "marry mr sinclair", the already married head of department.

Ah, joys.

(c'mon, hit me)

[20 Oct 2005|11:10pm]
Ah, that atheist community sure does have a sense of humour...

Homeless or Jesus

(c'mon, hit me)

[14 Sep 2005|07:28pm]
Well I'm off to Inverness next week. For one week, then in about a month i'm stuck up there for 5 weeks! Bloody school experience.

Seeing Pride and Predjudice tonight. For free! Random free advanced screening! yay!

Poor poor Gibernau... [28 Aug 2005|07:26pm]
Fucking fantastic race today, despite my mother chuntering away at me.

Had to laugh at poor Gibernau though, he put up such a fantastic fight, only to miss finishing in the last half lap. And anyone notice Rossi putting his arm round Capirossi for photos, but not Biaggi?

Must learn to resist the temptation of the drunken internet shop. Wasn't too bad last night (one book i wanted anyway), but have before woken up the next day to discover i've placed orders well over the hundred pound mark(generally immediatly after recieving a student loan cheque), only to have to cancel them again cos i can't aford it.

Drank in an ace wee place last night called leftbank. Looks like the kind of place student revolutions are born in!

(c'mon, hit me)

Du, DuDu Du Du (woo woo) [26 Aug 2005|11:02pm]
[ mood | awake ]

Goddamit I hate Limewire. The lil bro has it on the home computer and its slowing every damn thing up...

Anyways, start Uni on Monday. Well, matriculate anyway. Hopefully won't have to go to all the shitty IT and Library inductions that I already did 4 years ago. Geez, you'd think if you can make it to Postgrad level you can work a bloody computer.

MotoGP on SUnday! :D *dances stupidly*

So yeah.... home for the weekend, shopping in Ikea (woot) and town for clothes with mum (boo). Need decent clothes to go into school with. Presuming I can wear scabby clothes to lectures. Hope so anyway, can't be arsed looking neat 24/7.

Dee is officially my new flatmate, along with her dog Charlie. Tis great, but he does have a habit of bounding into my room at ten in the morning before leaping on to my legs to wake me up. Also, you can tell everywhere he's been curled up by the circular mat of blond hair left in his wake. His favourite spot unfortunatly appears to be next to my pillow which results in a nightly de-hairing ritual.

Thats all, methinks. Not very exciting, but what the hell eh?

Vroom vroom [04 Aug 2005|10:26pm]
After a lifetime hatred of F1, i have found a sport worth watching! MOTOGP!!!

Its ace, especially waiting for the moment when Rossi gets bored of sitting in third place and sweeps past everyone else in the final few laps.

Have become completely smitten with bikes since watching "Long Way Round", and am planning on sitting my CBT in September :D This is all with a view to finally owning a Green Kawasaki Ninja 6R.

In other news, liked the new Harry Potter. Been trying to figure out a few points though...

Life is a game and true love is a trophy... [26 Jun 2005|01:23am]
Dominoes is SHITE!!!

The arse munching franchisee has become a total nazi over the last week, so it looks like i'll be leaving. no more crappy pizza for me!

mind you, not entirely sure where i'm going to work for the next two months before i start uni again...

In other news, now living with a dog. Dee has brought the incredibly happy Charlie to live in the flat. Most of the time he's ace, but he's developed a habit of licking my hand at half ten every morning, and leaping on my bed as soon as i open my eyes. Daft beast.

Watched Das Experiment the other night. Pretty good.

Currently planning my holiday, which will consist of four days in my parent's empty house in edinburgh, and four days camping at Loch Ness :D

Midget Drunks [24 May 2005|11:01pm]
So yeah...

Got into teaching. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Silly fuckers at the university are going to train me how to teach English to 11-18 ear olds. Should be amusing. I imagine my classes will go something like this.

"Don't read of mice and men! its shit! read the crow road instead!"

we will see how it goes in august anyway.

sat and watched 'Long Way Round' about Ewan Macgregor's world bike trip with my new flatmate Dee (watched it with Dee, she didn't go on the tip with Ewan). Totally inspired us. Looks like South America may be on the cards for 2006, and I fully intend to learn to ride a motorbike as soon as I have the pennies. The joy of teaching is that i will have at least 6 weeks every summer to do some proper travelling. And when i have a bit more experience and money its gonna be a year long round the world trip and/or an application for a VSO placement.

[26 Apr 2005|12:18pm]
