not time to do anything…
just time going too fast.
Hell, contacts are drying up. Gonna go take them out… ahhh that’s better.
Recently, I’ve spent alot of time looking at photographs of the last few years. Time seems to be racing ahead…
See, it’s only the other day I was 16. And only the other day I was starting Uni. And only the other day I moved to London and now I don’t live there any more.
Wow. Seven years.
it’s been 6 years since I started wearing contact lenses. The glasses I’m wearing now I got in 1999.
I often think how quickly people around me will come and go. The people who seem to have such an influence on my daily life right now will not even remember me in 5 years time.
I’ll remember then though. I rarely forget people, though their names drift off.
People… people. Too many of them and no-one talks. Not in London anyway. Hence why I moved out.. I actually had a conversation with SOMEONE I DIDN’T KNOW AND THEY WEREN’T POLISH in Letchworth. Wow. That hasn’t happened since I moved away. And also, please stop wearing suits!! You look like prats. I am SO glad that I wear Dunlops to work and I’m not boring like you. Monochrome cutouts. Grr.
Lauren and I have found this cool 2nd hand book shop here and I’ve picked up a book called Stardust (nothing to do with the film though). It talks about something I say alot (more so when drunk) that we’re all the product of stars, which is true. Where else did we come from? No, not God. Don’t be silly. (If you are now getting irate, go and play somewhere else. Preferably with a plug socket. You cause Problems. And don’t note this either!!) Anyway, I’m sufficiently far enough away from my degree to actually read and understand it. You know that thing where you have to learn something and suddenly your brain turns into a hard block of concrete that can only play Tetris? Well, that’s gone now and I can understand and define such things as Panspermia and such. I’m rather impressed with myself. Smug, almost.
Had nightmares all last night. Kept on dreaming of a creature catching me in it’s talons and trying to kill me in a wood (‘ha!’ says the God Squad, ‘that would be Hell’s demons!’ OK, one, Hell is a Greek thought excercise that was adopted into religion and two, why are you still reading?). Not sure why I was having nightmares, though I have been a little ill at ease with myself lately. I think it’s due to the new place but I’m getting used to it now. It’s weird to be living alone, even though Lauren has been spending alot of time here.
I fancy doing a survey… can’t think of another random direction to take.
Before I do though, final note on religion. I do actually agree with Jesus. Sensible bloke. People that REALLY agree with him though should also go play with plug sockets.
So, a totally random survey. Haven’t even read through this. Wheeee….
1. Do you smoke mary-jane?
I can fall asleep without it thanks.

6:18… I remember…
7. Elvis or James Dean?
You expect me to CHOOSE?

Hangliding. No, really. I am. Right now.
14. What were you doing before this survey?
15. Who did you dance with last?
16. Who is your best friend(s)?
Tom, Helen, Jo, Shell, Mike
17. Song playing?
Placebo – Come Home
18. If you could have one wish:
i’d wish for an infinite amount of wishes. ((: <- that was the last person’s answer. See, if I was in the wishes industry, that would be top of the small print. So My Wish ™ would be for there to not be any small print for wishes, which would allow for unlimited wishes. Then I’d wreck havoc. Heh.
19. What color are your underwear?
White today… :S
20. Do you know what tofu is?
Bean crud. I mean what I say.

23. Have you ever had one?
24. Do you want to go back to high school?
Yes/No. Depending on how whiny I feel.

27. Do you or have you ever read Cosmo?
Yes… in disbelief.

What? She has a voice? Hell, I wasn’t listening to her… I was mentally undressing her.
30. What do you think of Paris Hilton?
Umm, I don’t know her. I do, however, know how PR works. Her PR company should all be murdered in their beds for forcing ‘Paris Hilton’ upon a stupid world.
31. What do you think of Justin Timberlake?
Again, I don’t know him. However, i will debate on how much ‘sexy’ he ‘brought back’. From where? Spain? Along with a fake Rolex and 400 Rothmans?
32. Britney or Christina?
Christina. If there were a choice. But only cos I kinda liked that song Candy Man.
33. Do you want platinum or gold for your wedding band?
It’s a RING. And platinum please.

A diverse range of stuff.
45. If you could have one person in your bed tonight, who would it be?
jon bon jovi <- the last person’s answer. Freak. What is WRONG with you? Bless, Bon Jovi shouldn’t be blamed for student nights everywhere where the DJ ALWAYS fades that bit where it goes ‘living on a pray-er’ and a couple of hundred drunken students and pervy old men mumble ‘luvvvin onn aa staaaiiiiirrrrr’, while holding their neon-flavoured drinks in the air. Next up, the Fucking Proclaimers with 1000 Miles. Yawn. Every time I’ve requested The Whispers – And The Beat Goes On, i get turned down. Student night DJs are gay. They then move on to play shit like 50 Cent or whatever, sampling SuperTramp or whatever. Hold up, sampling isn’t being creative, it’s theft. Ooh, Nancy Boy has just come on.
There was a question wasn’t there? Oh yeah, umm, Lauren
