Whatever Happened to 'Classix Nouveaux'?? [Sep. 28th, 2004|05:23 pm]

Indeed. 'Is it a Dream?' was such a fantastic song!!

Is it just me who makes a dreadful mess when eating a Pot Noodle with my lipring in?

It was all down my chin when I ate it for lunch at work last night (2am today)... Can't seem to prevent the noodles going all dribbly lol - not pretty!!

Rushed about like a mentalist yesterday - sat in Film Studies for two hours going through the opening 2 scenes of Psycho - discussing camera techniques, different types of cuts, mise-en-scene etc. Most of the class seemed to not want to be there - except for a couple of girls, one of which afterwards told me I was better than the tutor (blush) - I'd been explaining/pointing out things throughout, y'see - the change from white handbag/white underwear before taking the money to black handbag/black underwear when she had, the usage of mirrors in decision-making scenes throughout the film, explaining 'eyeline' shots as 'first person' for the kids in the class who didn't understand what the tutor was trying to explain - he himself hadn't heard of first/third person...wha???

I'm honestly trying to button my lip and let the rest of the class answer/work it out for themselves, but when you are sat for 5 mins in silence whilst the tutor stares at a pupil unblinkingly for five mins waiting for an answer that isn't forthcoming I'm finding it really hard NOT to do a 'E-E-E-Everybody knows that, Geoffrey!'.

Ho hum. Ran for the bus at 5pm, ran to the Art College for photography at 6pm, met Shauny, we had to do all the induction stuff again (this is the darkroom, this is the store *yawn - hello again Luke*). Our project (to be processed and completed by 29th Nov) is 'People At Work'. Shauny and I are off on a photoshoot day on Sunday (weather permitting) - we shall find workmen and make them do the Safety Dance - Oh Yes!!

Finished at 8:30ish, wandered up to work via the train station, where we were both tempted to say blah-to-it-all and jump on a train to London... Sat listening to music all night at work - on an old 80's kick of compilation cds - schooldaze nostalgia ahoy!!

At one point, I was listening to Culture Club: Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? and imagining Churchill (the dog) going 'Oh yes, Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh YES' and nodding throughout...

Got a lift home with Liz at 6am, fell into bed and slept the sleep of the dead. Chloe was on my bed for ages - her sorely paw is better now and no longer bandaged.

Still have things to do, people to see. Some things can wait till tommorrow though - and I have to go SHOPPING - DVD sale in Virgin - *squeals*

*need coffee/toast/coffee*

I think Clara is coming up later to discuss coursework - who knows?

And, at the request of vashe, I have decided to spend the next few nights at work re-working and illustrating HAIRY HARRY as a black gel roller inky children's story a la Mr. Men;)

Will give me something to do during 'eye-breaks' and when I'm on Duty Obs all night on Wednesday - I always get told off for doodling on the stats sheets anyway!!

I know, but it's what keeps me alive/keeps me motivated!

If I don't have anything to do I'll just lie in my bed and rot my life away lol:)

Pot Noodles are tricky. Not enough water than they're all thick, likely to have more dust in them, too much water and it's urgh. It sounds to me like you had too much water in it, the funky lip ring wasn't keen on the consistancy.

Do you add your own soy sauce to yours?

I used the amount of water that the coffee machine gave me, and added the sachet of Soy Sauce that came with it - I'd usually add a dash of my own chilli sauce, but I'd have had to carry it about on my person from 11am to 6am in a bagfull of folders, cds, notebooks, sketchbook etc etc - which was weighty enough without adding condiments to the equation...

Yes, there was definately too much water in there, and I made myself feel decidedly sick because I drank the rest when I ran out of noodley-goodness. Oh dear!!

i tend to steer clear of pot noodles anyway. disgusterous things.

mind you my rings aren't slap in the middle - so they have a different effect on eating.

I LOVE Pot Noodles - especially those posh spicy ones (not Golden Wonder) that you get from Sainsbury's... Perfect morning hangover munch without danger of barfage;)

Your liprings are to the sides, yes - does that mean you dribble out of the sides of your mouth then? Or trap spaghetti in them? At least mine have the added effect of being a handy cheese-slice if I put too much in my mouth... EWWW!!! (think I'd better stop there...)

for a while i couldnt take big bites of anything (no KFC! denied!) but now they're all healed i'm eating just the same.

what's offputting is when i use one to temporarily store a biro, or my glasses - makes the normals cringe somewhat.

as for the pasta question, i don't eat straght spaghetti - dont ask me why, but i tend to ead the little shell shaped ones and the black labelled Sainsbury's posh pasta, which is extra nice.

I'm going to push her wheelchair off a mountaintop... Oh, wrong Clara lol!!

*thinking of Heidi*

Not strictly a fangirl - one of my 'younger' friends who was a techie for last years panto at the Barbican Theatre, and I have found is doing Film Studies with me! She, Cat and I are forming a 'study group'.

Yes, I *know*, it's ALWAYS the last book in the library...

Oh I won't be doing preliminary - I'll be doing a page at a time, and when they're done, they're done. I work best that way when using gel rollers - the scribbles are more immediate and lively... Can't bear thought out stuff:/
