Being drunk...

...only ever leads to feeling crap. Especially when you spend the night surrounded by couples.

You don't think being single affects you until you go on just a normal night out with friends, and it hits you that you are "the single, funny one" that is there to amuse all the couples.

And it is only now, because you realise that nearly everyone you know has paired off, and that ex boyfriend you don't care about any more is going to announce his engagement any time soon you are sure, that you start to feel really shit and panicked.

And I hate being that person!! Fucking get over it you idiot.

So sick if my own whining!!!!

They're playing Been a While by Staind on Absolute Radio, which I have playing next to my desk at work... that's a bit of a grungey song to be playing on a general music radio isn't it?

Ah well, won't complain :-D

I just discovered this in My Documents, I only vaguely remember writing it... aaaages ago.

The Silly Little Bird

The question of the silly little bird is a serious one, and as Professor Birdie noted, “…the silly little bird is in fact not as silly as it is made out to be. We can see throughout the play that he in fact emerges as a bird of tremendous courage and splendour; a hero in his own right.” 1 However, it is clear that during the course of the piece, the bird does in fact do some silly things: he burns down the houses of parliament; he moons innocent female birds in Hyde Park; he insists on speaking in limericks; he gets his feathers dyed purple with white polka dots; and he persuades everybody to call him ‘Bobarella.’ These examples demonstrate the intense sillyness of this little bluetit. As the play progresses, we see that the silly little bird uses the other characters as puppets in his own silly games. This is demonstrated through the use of persuasive language, as the bird tells his friends,

“There once was a man from Japan,
Whose poetry never quite scanned
And when asked why
He said because I
Always try to fit as many words into the last line as I most possibly can!”

Thus the other birds follow suit in trying to make up other limericks, yet fail, as the silly little bird conquers all in relation to the extremities of sillyness.

My sister started her art foundation course at Epsom this week. And I am insanely jealous. Every now and then I think I must start drawing and painting again, the problem is I lack motivation. Yet if I have a project to work on, I am forced to do work and I really enjoy it. I would love to use art in my work, but it's one of those things where you need practice, experience, a portfolio... somehow I don't think doodles I create in my spare time would really count.

I keep considering doing an art course. The only problem is I have this stubborn thing in my head where I think that not getting a job and paying out for yet another course is a stupid thing to do, and that I should concentrate on getting a job. Even though I know that there are plenty of people out there who do second degress and so on.

What if I worked for a while...then got the money...then started an art course. But by then I might be 24/25ish... is that too late to be starting a course?

Gah. I bet it's one of those things where I don't build up the courage to just do it and then I regret it when it's too late. And what could I do with art and languages together. Hmm.

I really really really want to work on figure drawing. I want to practice a horrendous amount and actually start to be able to draw figures properly, without it being an observational drawing. I want to be able to make up characters in my head and put them to paper.

Writer's Block: A Posthumous Oscar for Joker?

Do you think Heath Ledger deserves the Oscar for his role in the Dark Knight?
Definitely. I spent the entire film trying to see Heath Ledger behind the Joker's makeup, and I couldn't, not at any point. Which I think is a mark of brilliant acting.

Stolen from Claire...

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed.

1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Italicize those you intend to read.
3) Underline the books you LOVE.
4) Reprint this list in your own LJ.

Books books books...Collapse )

Someone entertain me!!

the mask

What's that coming under the bridge, is it a fire, is it a fire?

Ooooh. Today was the first time I've ever phoned the emergency services, there was a fire round the corner. How terribly exciting! (I'm easily pleased...)

Me and Faye saw smoke coming from round the corner, so went outside to check and there were huge black fumes coming out from this truck. Loads of people were outside being nosy but none of them had phoned the fire brigade, so I did, then we waited around for the fire engine to come (I felt terribly proud of myself).



Yaaaay a nee-naw!

Gratuitous photos of firemen. Even though most of them were fat middle aged Bristolians.

Well, that was a fun break from revision!

So....I auditioned for a cabaret evening that the musical theatre group are putting on in Bristol. I just wanted to do some proper singing, no guitar and acoustic stuff, but big musical numbers. And when I went for the audition, I put that I was happy being in the chorus and that I would be happy doing solos, duets, trios, quartets...whatever really. Cos I thought it'd be fun to do a bit of all of them.

So I got in, but as far as I can see the only song I get to do is in a quartet... no solos, when it seems that other people have about 3 solos/duets etc. I guess I'm just a little disappointed cos I would have liked to do something a little bigger than a small part in one song and chorus work, cos I've done nothing else this year.

Groups like this are always clique-ey too, I recognise the names of the people doing solos, cos they're the same people that have been in everything this year.

Ah well. Hopefully it'll be a fun break from revision anyway.

(I also notice that there are two songs from 'Wicked' in the lineup, and I would have absolutely *loved* to do them, as I am constantly singing all the songs from Wicked. Maybe I should have hinted at it in my audition...but that would have seemed lame. Gah.)
