(I bought it for Mike on Sunday - 'tis so well suited hehe!!)

The Chap Manifesto: Revolutionary Etiquette for the Modern Gentleman



I'm in the middle of a 'grand tidyage' (again).

The washing-machine is on with a couple of loads of laundry, there is a second cd player in the loft and also the record player and video (though only the cd player is plugged in so far) - and I'm sort-of getting there...have taken a binbag of rubbish out at least...

Went to Fulfords yesterday to sort out the grands-worth of arrears left to me by the flat/ex. They've taken the deposit out of it (465 quid - so we won't be getting that back), had an uptodate payment of his housing benefit which STILL leaves it lacking as he was about 130 quid short of rent each month and hadn't topped it up out of the rest of the money he was getting...

And I *still* have 360-400 quid to pay on top of all that!!!!

Mum will have to do it and I will have to pay her back when I can - inbetween paying off all the other debts left to me:/


Ho hum - I'm doing 12 hour shift of overtime this Thursday and the next, and a nightshift this Sunday and the next to make up for it:/

In other news, the weekend was (again) fantastic... Went to the Dev in the evening and caught up with TONS of people - including alienfox who I haven't seen since September and miss dreadfully and made some new friends - being work/goff mates of Mike's as well. YAY FOXY BIG HUGS!!

Got home about 1am - collapsed into bed and practically fell unconscious.

Sunday we went to Greenwich and I met Mike's sister - she's really lovely... Then met up with Royston with Godfrey in tow, so we went to Greenwich market and ended up in Wetherspoons for a meal which took an age to arrive... Went home via Docklands Light Railway - all lit up in the night - felt like scenes from Bladerunner and was really fun!!

Monday - lounging around, then train home at 3:30 - slept all the way home - got home about 7pm and slept until 9pm when I went to work.



Monday onwards I have had a vicious sinus headache which won't go away even with ibuprofen and sinutabs combined... Had to spend half the night at work keying without my glasses because my sinuses hurt too much!! Can't take any time off sick tho - as I'll a) lose my potential 100 quid xmas bonus and b) I'm on a stage two so daren't anyway...


I'm almost all done on my xmas shopping - except for Secret Satan and a couple of friends. Goddamn am I organised this year!!! In the meantime, I'm ignoring bills till early January lol - when my overtime pay goes in I should be about 300 squid better off than my usual paypacket;)

Ok - need to check the washing machine. Catch y'all later...

(not sure how much later - might be friday - as Mike is coming down tommorrow *bounce*)



Btw, I have to admit to something - I FELL OFF THE WAGON...

Yes, I gave in to MEAT after the big flat clearout last weekend back - and had roast lamb. Since then I've been eating steak and ale pie, pasties, fancy german sausages wrapped in bacon and yummy whatnots... I'll go veggie for the summer again no doubt but it's XMAS and I have to put a few turkeys out of their misery...

Is that the meat wagon? That's a colloquial term for an ambulance, I believe. Oh isn't the english language so much fun!

I have people asking me if I fancy going to 'The Dev', but I'm just not goff enough, they'd throw me out.

Ah and Christmas, I so love the run-up. Email me your new address and i'll send you an mp3 of this show where Siouxsie sat in for John Peel.

If it were the MEAT WAGON then I would seriously be in twubble. As it is, all I mean is I've only managed to stay veggie for six months lol!!

You'll get thrown out if you're in blue denim or chavwear... But otherwise, any colour so long as it's black hehe;)

Email and whatnot : will do:))

sinus headache ----> sounds like stress. post xmas, post overtime, post bills, should be better.

falling off the wagon ----> you did well. Roast lamb is the second highest slayer of vegetarians (behind the humble bacon sarnie)

London ----> sometime after xmas i'm heading up to london.. maybe we could synchronise trips? maybe..

Tidy-age ----> reminds me, i still have to sort out tomas' toys.

NOTE TO ALL VAMPGIRL's readers - anyone in Plymouth with a young (ish) kid want a binliner full of toys?

Sinus headache - wish it would piss off... Though the strong coffee, halls mentholyptus sweeties and druuuuugs seem to have worked for now;)

Wagonesque - Couldn't sodding help myself - was screaming for blood as it was lol!

London - damned good idea. Will have to check one's diary:))

Tidy-age - If I get off the computer I can carry on...

TOYAGE: I might be able to take them off your hands for Alexander - he's four y'see... Anything my sister won't want could be carbooted for you. I'll sort it out and collect my amp at the same time sometime on the weekend/next week perhaps:))

*big hugs*

I'll be out Saturday evening to The Damned gig with Mike... Not sure what I'm up to Sunday, apart from having to be at work by 10pm that is.

Good luck with the girl:))

Free Toys.....

Are they girls, boys or generic toys?
I've got a five yearold Girl, and most of her toys are at her mums, so any extra toys for her at my flat would be cool!

May well have walked past you lol!!

We were in the Market for an hour or so - mulled wine and licorice toffee etc etc...

Docklands is COOL!!! Probably perhaps a bit boring by day, but lit-lovely at night *wistful grin*

I gave up the meat wagon last year... dont be ashamed.. the meat wagon never moves so you can always hop on again.
my b/f works on a pig farm and I was against meat and everything when he got it..I was pretty upset, but in time visiting him when he went to work and seeing what he did. It made me feel alot better knowing that where he worked, the pigs were happy and very healthy, and on the plus side they dont just go round giving them drugs and crap to make money.

the tidying and cleaning out thing.. I moved all the stuff in david and mines room the other week.. I found 3 binliners worth of crap and came across a breeding ground for socks and hamster food in a corner.
its amazing to see how I managed ot fit all that in the room of that size.
I'm not even going to get started on the laundry.. I'll just say 'mountin' and expect you to understand

also I know how painful sunisutus can be I get it every year without fail. theres a trick to get rid of it that I learnt in my armoatherapy class.but without drawing a diagram I cant explain how to do it.. just press on the insides of your eyes dierctly below where your eyebrows start and massage it... it does the job :D

hope your feeling better soon

I'm back on the tidying thing again - I seem to be capable of making SUCH A TIP in only a week...this time, I'm taking furniture apart!!

I have no idea how it happens:/

I have about 3 loads of laundry too, but my bf has left all his dirty stuff here lol!

As far as the nose goes - I have a doctors app on Tuesday to talk about it;)
