Soy la chica loca
Wed, Aug 02 2006 @ 01:51   //   Category: Me about me

So I've exhausted all my friends & family with my constant whingeing. I'm not surprised, I would be annoyed if I wasn't me. Actually I am annoyed being me too.

When will this ever end!? I AM SO FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF MYSELF!!!

Sick and tired of lying in bed/sitting at my desk staring at the wall/ceiling crying for hours for no fucking reason whatsoever. Ooooh, I'll always have some life-shattering reason. But they never really matter do they because if it's not one thing then it's the other!

(this was gonna be longer but there is no point. I need shot. and yes you've guessed it, the comments are closed again)

I love Michael Jackson
Sat, Aug 05 2006 @ 01:57   //   Category: Michael Jackson

How random. I came across this entry because Mon and I (shut it) were discussing Mir and Tris (shut it).

And well, it's kinda topical cuz I spent ages discussing him with my slore last weekend, and with Michelle yesterday, and both times I was like "yeah I love him but..."
But reading that entry made me all "I love him and fuck you" again. *lol*

Which is how I should  feel. So it's all good. :-)

PS I also love Shakira. She's hot, and if I ever get my iPod back I'll put her Don't Bother video on it and watch it over and over and over and over...

Brighton rocks in lottery survey
Sat, Aug 05 2006 @ 11:22   //   Category: Randomness

People in Brighton were the most positive and felt the luckiest of any town or city in the UK, a survey by the National Lottery revealed on Friday.

Brighton's seafront was said to contribute to its feel-good factor

The city topped the poll, with 93% of residents asked considering themselves lucky. In second-placed Liverpool, 87% of people thought they were lucky.

"We were not surprised. Anyone going to Brighton cannot ignore the buzz," said psychologist Linda Papodopoulos.

Reading was third (84%), Manchester and Cardiff polled 79% and London 76%

I have a Mon
Mon, Aug 07 2006 @ 21:44   //   Category: Mon & Lo updates

But I have no phone. Like, neither of my SIM cards receive any texts. I find that rather frustrating, I feel very cut off from the world. But I guess I wanted a people break and now I have one. *lol* That's all I wanted to let you know really. :P Byebye.

I am back from Norway
Mon, Aug 14 2006 @ 00:33   //   Category: Mon & Lo updates

I had a very amazing time.
I was planning to update in 2 parts:
- what we did
- how I felt
Maybe I will tomorrow. I have loads of pics but many I won't be allowed to post cuz Jimmy will object.

But this trip was a trip of records/firsts/etc:
1. it was the long-planned Jimmy-Mon-Wam trip!!! I thought it would never happen! We'd planned this so often & argued about it so much... I guess it had to happen so short term and so impulsively for it to work. :P
2. I think it's the furthest North I've ever been... and I've also added the furthest North cathedral to my Gothic collection (and omg it was so beautiful!)
3. it's the first time I've slept in a tent... I've done all sorts of "camping" (in horse boxes, in trailers, in buses...) but never in a tent.
4. it was the longest I've driven in one go since going to Vienna in 1998.
5. It was my shortest-term-booked flight ever!! Well apart from "oops missed flight, must find alternative" ones.

So ja. It was very fun and over way too soon. It is in fact over now. Tomorrow you shall/may have details and pics.

First off, pics are here.

Secondly, have a shortish report (damn I never manage to keep these things short :)))... I'll link to relevant pics in the entry I guess. But there are more pics (97 in total) so view them all!

Did I mention I'm off again?
Wed, Aug 16 2006 @ 01:49   //   Category: Life & Me

Only for 2 days tho. I am going to see Placebo. In Colmar, Alsace (France). Tomorrow night. I think it has not quite registered yet. I am seeing Brian Molko in about 20hrs. Nevermind scary shaved head. OMG BRIAN! =P~ :D

You scored as Atheism. You are... an atheist, though you probably already knew this. Also, you probably have several people praying daily for your soul. Instead of simply being "nonreligious," atheists strongly believe in the lack of existence of a higher being, or God.



















Which religion is the right one for you?

I have caught three planes since the uncovering of whatever terrorist plot was uncovered. I have encountered, in my travels, very  varying levels of vigilance & security, and incredible inconsistency regarding said security & its justifications etc. And I am enraged (and presumptious) enough to turn this into a (fucking long) entry.

Placebo and Alsace
Fri, Aug 18 2006 @ 08:49   //   Category: Life & Me

So. Another travel report. I went to Colmar (Alsatia) to see Placebo. I also visited Strasbourg again. And I had a great great great time, and you shall hear about it!!! :D

Pics are here. (I was gonna integrate them in the entry but there are too many and I'd rather have them bigger)

speaking of transportation, could air travel become any less pleasant?
my theory is that eventually air travel will involve naked people, heavily sedated, kept in quasi-cryogenic storage as they get shuttled from one unpleasant place to another.

i guess i'm also a bit disturbed that the nsa, etc are just now figuring out that terrorists would try to use liquid explosives.
i did an interview A FEW YEARS AGO wherein i said, 'huh, seems like all a terrorist would have to do is sneak liquid explosives onto the plane in a water bottle. that's probably more attractive to them than attacking passengers with a butter knife.'

maybe the nsa should hire me as a consultant...

and why do they ban things from airplanes AFTER terrorists try to use them?
the terrorists are evil but they're not stupid.
wouldn't it make sense to try and figure out what they might do, as opposed to banning things they've already done or tried?

Yes I'm obsessed
Mon, Aug 21 2006 @ 21:09   //   Category: Opinionated

(apologies to Mon)

from the Guardian:

Ryanair today threatened to sue the government for compensation unless airport security measures are returned to normal within seven days.

Michael O'Leary, the outspoken chief executive of Ryanair, described the new restrictions as "farcical Keystone Cops security measures that don't add anything except to block up airports", as he issued the ultimatum.

I am not tired
Wed, Aug 23 2006 @ 19:56   //   Category: Life & Me

And this is not about air travel security.

It's about me. Today I sent off three job applications. The first ones since before I left for the US, which was about 6 weeks ago. *cough* So that's... good. Good cuz I actually did something.

I also have a fairly normal sleeping pattern again - going to bed around midnight-1am, waking up around 9.30-10. That's also good. Today I didn't even have an afternoon nap (unlike the previous days, but that was to help switch from my 6am rises to more normal hours).

And I drink lots of herbal teas and squash and sometimes Coke. I eat a lot too. Probably more than I should. But eating is nice. And I read. I finished my book and am now reading the next one.

I am also being a good girl and taking my happy pills, and not drinking, and on Monday I went to see my new counsellor but I'm not sure if I like her. She seems kinda judgmental. I'll go again on Tuesday tho and give her another chance.

I also went to the doctor again (cuz of a rash I had) and she suggested CBT meditation to help control my crazy/obsessive thoughts. There's a buddhist institute in the North Laine that offers sessions. So I might do that too.

I am still broke of course. But I am now looking for jobs. Which is good. Cuz I'm doing something. Etc etc.

THIS is why I'm back so soon!
Fri, Aug 25 2006 @ 18:44   //   Category: Video

People are always surprised / shocked at how fast I come back from the store or the laundrette, so I've made a little movie to show you how close they both are... :D

Walk with me to the laundrette!
(wmv, 30secs, 2.95MB)

Unfortunately you can't see the store sign for very long cuz I've sped it up 4 times... hopefully you'll catch it tho! And because the whole video is so shaky it almost looks like stop motion! :))

What a drag
Sun, Aug 27 2006 @ 01:47   //   Category: Randomness

Today I was incredbily bored most of the time, and kind of sad and confused some of the time. I must emancipate myself... from my feelings. Or alternatively from the people that cause them. Or something.

Towards the end of the day (or the beginning of the new one?) I discovered Mechanised.org.uk - I wish I'd found it earlier, as now I stayed up late into the night exploring it. Anyway, I recommend it.

So maybe I should update
Thu, Aug 31 2006 @ 12:21   //   Category: Life & Me

It's been a while after all. I've had the most incredible sleep marathon over the past 2 days, inspired by the most nasty headache / general shitfeelingness, from which I deduct the following: my happy pillls and excessive alcohol do not mix. So I'd say I've learnt my lesson.
