dont get in a big canoe & row on down.....
I almost got a phone I didn't want!!
Pushy salesmen & gullible, pushover me do not mix very well at all.
Was just gandering about looking at phones because I'm due for an upgrade, when arghhh
"hey, come sit over here, I'l see what deals I can get you".
So as the guy was precessing the Nokia N97 through the computer, fate took pity on me & crashed his computer.
I also told him that I didn't want the phone so he attempted to cancel it & try again with a different phone.
So out I escape & run back home & get Rich to phone up orange for me because I'm a chicken, to sort out wether or not I have messed up my contract.
Nope I havn't!!! YEY YEY
So tomorrow I'm going to the Orange shop (No Im not going back to Phones4U at 4pm like the guy told me to) & I am getting myself an iphone!!!
I decided against the HTC hero in the end because it is more expensive than the iphone (surprisingly) & even though it's android & has free apps (I know nothing about phones but thanks to geeky Rich, I know about Android phones) iphones still end up being the better & they also have Harry Potter & Monkey Island apps

I started watching it online a few weeks ago but my connection died so kinda gave up.
I started watching it again today & it's pretty awesome!!
Although Joseph Fiennes isnt Ralph Fiennes, he keeps making me think of Voldemort.

I have no clue whatsoever on what to buy anyone!!!& I don't have very much money-Damn me spending loads when I got excited when my new bank card turned up in the post....
I managed to blow £70 on play.com things-but this included pre-ordering Harry Potter 6, Mighty Boosh Live 2 Special Edition-with top trumps & belt buckle, a Merlottes Bar & Grill Tshirt & a couple of lil Xmas presents for Rich (Ok that was a couple of Xmas presents-but I still have loads to go!)
I always struggle buying things for my parents & Fallan, last year was easy-I used my staff discount & got my dad this posh cafetiere & loads of my free bags of coffee. Cant do that this year!
I thought that was bad-then I managed to blow £72 in Topshop-bad me, but I got the prettiest Bird top ever
& also this shirt which I have wanted for ages
Here (obviously not the maternity one, I couldn't find it anywhere else on the website!)
& this plain black vest to wear under many things
I was planning on being good after that....but then I saw a parka in Debenhams & had to have it!!
SO NOW IM BEING GOOD & NOT SPENDING TILL PAYDAY!
I miss my Mom so I'm hoping she will visit soon-she said she will take me with her to go Xmas shopping-I'm trying to persuade her to go to Bristol-not just for the amazing Hot Chocolate from Hotel Chocolate (Nom) or Wagamamas.
Speaking of Wagamamas, I have an obsession with noodle Soup, especially the Chicken Ramen.
If I had to choose a meal to live off for the rest of my life it would have to be that!!!

I HAVE MY MACBOOK BACK :D
yey tt's all lovely & shiny & working (it broke just before I went on holiday, the screen wouldnt turn on :s) & I didn't have to pay anything either, BRUCEY BONUS!
Last Friday my mommy & my 2 aunts came up to visit which was nice because I dont get to see them very often, as they live in Birmingham & I'm in Chelenham & I dont often get the same days off as they do.
I got a cute dress/top for my Graduation which is next month so I dont have to worry about that next month.
I got a bonus & a payrise from work which is very useful seeing that it's almost xmas! We start xmas food & drinks next weds......Im going to be sick of xmas music by the time it gets here!
I won a £20 voucher for being the best worker for the quarter weyyyyy (I'm planning on buying Lost season 5)
I'm addicted to the Southern Vampire Mysteries-Finished book 4 this morning & started reading what I thought was the next....got a few chapters in & thought I didnt remember some things happening, then I realized it was the wrong bloody book!! DOH
I have a day off tomorrow :D going to meet up with Claire, Kirsty & Chloe =]
My Halloween costume came the other day, its a bit small :s but Im planning on squashing myself into it!!!!

Did you miss me??!!! I doubt it, but here are a few updates with what I have been up to recently!
The last week I have been in Majorca & it was lovely!! Not too keen on being back, jumping from 30 degrees to under 20 is a bit of a shock to the system!!
So the flight there-was delayed but only by an hour or so, as we were landing into Palma I got really bad pains in my head from the pressure-felt like my eyebrows were being sliced off!
Now I know how Harry Potter felt when his scar burned!
When we got there we went out for dinner at this little shack by the beach-I kept throwing up though which wasnt good =[ I was so hungry I was sick!!
went in the apartment hotel pool which was so cold but the sun warmed me up after.
Day 2- we visited this beach at Formentor which was lush!!! You could see all the fishys in the sea =]
Weds- we went to the market in old town Alcudia & walked along the walls, it was too hot though so we had to come down for a drink & lemon mirringue pie (which was soooo good), then we ventured on to Port Da Alcudia which was a bit more touristy & Chavvy :s
Everything in Majorca is so expensive so I didnt buy much, a bag of sweets cost 4.60 euros which is roughly about £5....... even a pot noodle cost 2.60 :/
Went for a bike ride into town & it poured with rain for about 10 mins, was like a crazy monsoon!!
On friday we went to Palma & Palma aquarium which was amazing!!!!
Spent most of the holiday on the beach & wandering around eating ice creams =]
since i've come back-i have to work 8 days straight till I can have a day off =[
I've also decided that I'm not being freddy kruger for halloween anymore but a zombie marie antoinette.
thats all for now
Friday, 2 October 2009
Not really much has happened-been doing some killer shifts at work, yesterday I did 7:30-11:30 then I had to go back & do 1:30-7:30. It wasn't a fun day, started off with me being sick in the sink :s
but I think it was because I was hungry & hadnt eaten.
I started to pack for holiday yesterday eve =] cant wait till monday!!
Now on the Brisingr? book now so I'm gonna start a little bit then leave the rest for my hol. Was gonna take the Southern Vampire Mysteries book 1 but I dont think I'l be relaxing enough to read!!!
Going to Birmingham today with Frannie so see All Time Low, hehe I like cheesy emo pop still :p Don't mock.
Might be meeting up with Mommy hehe so I may have to go to TK Maxx & buy lots of halloweeney goodies & get her to take them home for me instead of lugging them about at the gig.

Ok so basically, I was a lesbian with short brown hair & my girlfriend (yes I had one) told me to download all the Imogen Heap albums, so as I went to do so, I found all these coins under this chest of drawers & I had to hoover up all these spiders to get them out.
Then I turned back into my normal self & went to this Gig where Greenday played with The Horrorpops. Me & Kate's ex-boyfriend were fighting over who got to go at the front & then one of the guitarists invited me up on stage to sing with them, then Patricia told me to play double bass with her then it turned into one of those silver tin lunchboxes which made us fly......
So we flew to London because it was the tattoo convention & I spotted Samboy (yes you Samboy :p) so we swooped down to talk to her, but she had to go because she wanted to look in a soap shop over the road.....
& then I woke up.
And I'm rather peed off because the idiots upstairs have run a bath & let it overflow so there is water dripping down the bedroom wall & I'm scared the ceiling is going to collapse while I'm asleep.
They have done it before but this was before we moved in here & there is a mahoosive crack on the ceiling because of it....
I'm undecided on a film to watch, but I think I may read some more of my book.
Yesterday I went to see that Dorian Gray film & it was pretty good although I was probably the only person in the whole cinema hiding at certain point throughout it!
I've read the book which I liked & from seeing the trailer beforehand it looked a bit creepy.....
I'm such a wuss & it kept making me jump when the wheezy breathy noise came on when bits of the pic was shown
Lame yes I know but I'm not afraid to admit I'm a scaredy cat!
Cleaned out Milton the other night & tried to tame him a bit more-managed to pick him up briefly but then he jumped out my hand & I had a panic when he landed on the carpet. Hope he never escapes because If he fell down the gap where the stairs are then it's bye bye Milton =[
I wish more of my mates lived around or were closer to Cheltenham =[ it gets lonely here now because everyone's moved away or is moving away. As much as I love this place, I wish there were more people to be friendly with!

I cant remember all of it but it involved going round Fal's (best mate) boyfriend's house where his family were packing things for a holiday.
I am walking outside to get into a car & I see this kid suddenly get attacked but a pterodactyl & he has to go to hospital. Then its all breaking news that the dinosaurs are still alive & I join a dinosaur hunting crew.
can anyone interpret that one?
It wasn't much of one- how did I know I'd end up doing nothing =[
we just ended up going to Cardiff in the eve for Rich's gig & now I'm super tired because I didnt go to sleep till about half 1.
I know thats not mega late but I feel like I cant cope unless I have at least 8 hours sleep these days!
Hence why I never go out anymore.
Today I have to go to the docs (eep) & then I shall be seeing Katieface to watch films & eat sweets
So hopefully it will be an ok day-then back to work tomorrow....

I read the books just to see if they were as everyone kept raving about.... & they were so dull I'd rather have watched paint dry.
I came across this article it just explains everything I think Twi-shite is (not gramatically correct but i'm ranting)
The Characters Start Shallow…And Stay That Way.
The entire book centers on the development of Bella and Edward's teenage relationship and progresses with just about as much excitement as a pall bearers convention. For more than four hundred pages, Bella and Edward dance around each other in the same tired pattern. There’s no danger, no intrigue, no excitement.
Their relationship is dull and lifeless, even though it is the focal point of the story, and holds very little weight. Their love for each other is very superficial. Never once do they have a conversation that stretches beyond their desire for each other and they never acknowledge that they have nothing in common beyond lust.
Edward, the hero -- whom the audience is supposed to fall head over heels in love with--is downright mean and rude to the heroine, yet she takes whatever he dishes out, because he’s beautiful. When Bella is faced with him, rather than calling him on any of his nasty behavior, she internally admires his handsomeness; when he’s gone, she misses him desperately, even though he treats her like garbage for a great percentage of the book.
Bella, the heroine, our window to this world that Meyer has created, is a character that’s hard to empathize with. She’s a shell. There is virtually no personality to be found within her. Her two defining character traits are that she’s clumsy and she’s in love with Edward. That’s it. She seemingly exists to worship Edward Cullen and she has no life outside of her obsession with him. This is far from being a positive message for the teenage girls who eat this series up like it’s a literary confection.
The characters are monotonous. Every detail of Bella’s life, from showers taken to dishes washed, is detailed, but does nothing to progress the story. The book takes breaks between what little action there is to give us, in essence, weather reports.
The language that Meyer uses is just as tired as her characters. Repetition of the same words and phrases is so prevalent that it’s noticeable. Characters are ‘irritated’ with each other more often than not; they ‘growl’ at each other or ‘sneer’. When reading, one begins to wonder whether or not Meyer has ever seen the inside of a thesaurus.
Adding insult to injury, the dialogue is stilted, unnatural and downright boring. Not once is there a sarcastic, cutting remark that makes you wince or joke that makes you smile, it’s all one, long drone.
Twilight had a great deal of potential. Bella, the weak willed, obsessive teenage girl, could have spread her wings and grown beyond her original characterization, maturing and growing a spine, challenging her lot in life, challenging the man she obsessed over for so long; instead, she is exactly the same at the end of the book as she is at the beginning. Edward, who could've easily been forced to learn humility through some extraordinary experience--perhaps even just through his love for Bella--instead lives on, unchanged, as the perfect, unimpeachable male that every woman in the story's universe should strive to have.
Instead of showing the audience that growth is a good thing, Twilight embraces stagnation, and though the narrative picks up exponentially halfway through, you still have to struggle through the first two hundred and fifty pages before anything interesting happens.
Vampires are meant to be exciting not some push-overs who act like humans!
If its all about vampires these days, try reading something good like Anne Rice (Interview with the Vampire), 30 Days of Night, Charliane Harris or the origional, Dracula. Darren Shan books are amazing, but I found out there is a film version out soon & it looks so bad =[ they guy from Stepbrothers is playing Mr Crepsley & he is so wrong for the part!!!
I have no idea what to do & I hope it wont get wasted just laying about the house. Although I like doing this sometimes I just feel like I've wasted the day away!
Hopefully it will be an adventure day!
(I will post tomorrow to let you know haha)
I finally decided to delete the stupid Farmville game off my facebook because it was becoming an unhealthy obsession-Farmville being like Harvest Moon.
I dont understand how growing sunflowers can become addictive?!
I finished the new Dan Brown book about 10 mins ago- It was pretty exciting but then it kind of just ended. Slightly disappointing after all that rushing about.
Started to watch the Mighty Boosh again last night & I still love it, although I thought series 3 was a major let down apart from a couple of episodes. I still love noel & Julian even though they seem to have got to big for their boots these days. Touring America?! I dont know if they will ever understand our type of humour!
I just looked up & I've located the knocked down spider again :s hopefully I will catch it soon. I keep imagining it crawling over me when I'm sleeping.

had to be in work for 6:30 so I'm all sleepyfide now.
Today was rent day as well & Rich is low on cash so I had to pay part of his rent so I'm double poor now.
No more going to convention next weekend-probably a good thing because I'd see so many pretty things I cant afford =[
On the plus side today, I got an awesome stripey jumper from Primark for my Halloween costume (a bit early I know) but usually when I want to find a costume I leave it last minute & everything has gone. Im gonna be Freddy Kruger! but a girly version-just need a trilby? hat & a glove thingy-il have a lookski on ebay

no I didn't get the Hammer Horror boxset today =[ water bill came in the post- £114 & that & rent & saving for holiday pennies isnt fun.
There is a massive spider in my room........I asked Rich to get rid of it but he wouldn't so I took matters into my own account & went to squash it (it was right on the ceiling over my side of the bed!) and as I went to squash it......it fell down & now its somewhere lurking under the bed & I'm scared to go to sleep!!!
So far into the new Dan Brown book.....its pretty good-although he uses all those confusing scholarly words & I'm not really taking in all the scientific bits & bobs, I dont think it matters though?!
plan is to meet Jade, Sooz & Megan outside work then come back to mine & watch cheesey films hehe
I want to buy the Hammer Horror collection-it's in Rise for £40- but thats for like 21 discs with 6 films on each???or something along those lines. I dont know whether or not to get it today though....it may be bought by someone else & I only saw the one.
I bought the new Dan Brown book yesterday! starting to read it now-hopefully its as good as Angels & Demons.
Also im may be going to the London Tattoo Convention on the Sunday now-got my rota from work yesterday & I can goooo-depending on if I have the money. Friday is rent day =[
Ruth my boss was really nice to me yesterday & I have no idea why!!!! She has given me sunday & monday off & a short shift next sat & the sun off as well!
I miss Fal loads, she's going back to Leeds for uni on saturday & I have only seen her once this summer...it's not like Chelt is miles away from Bromsgrove-so feeling a bit meh about that.
Although she did ask if I could go to some club on friday night but I dont think I can because of work. So no idea when I will see her next =[
I really want to see 9, Dorian Gray & the Time Travelers wife but I havnt been to the cinema since Harry Potter came out. It's way too expensive! May just have to download them or stream them from somewhere.
I dont really understand how this blog thing works- its all confuzzling & I want pretty pictures for my background but I dont know where to change it.
I dont even know if anyone will read these or how you get friends lol
this can be a nonsense blog that noone will read.
