it's raining a lot, and very am i expected to go to tesco's in this weather? how? i would get veritably soaked. muh.

the gig, at the egypt cottage, was awwesome..paper cut out rocked hard, milky wimpshake made me bounce up and down on my seat with glee, this aint vegas were just amazing as per usual, and bilge pump finished the evening off very nicely is a (very grainy and a bit rubbish) picture of birthday boy pete dale rocking out to bilge pump on an amp at the side of the stage..

was going to go to all saints church to see peter brewis of field music doing some solo stuff last night, but would have had to go on my own, and wasn't entirely sure how to get i thought it better to have some fun with my new coursefriends instead..and it was a lot of fun..partly aided by the fact that, in the bar we went to, wine is £1.70 a glass..somewhat dangerous, non?

and now, another fun-filled weekend of hmv and hangovers lies ahead of me..

something wrong with blogger has been naughty and not letting me on..

bad wine head this morning..bad bad bad. but i successfully remedied it with 2 nurofen, lots of water, 3 episdoes of 'sex & the city', and 'the red thread' by arab i feel all better.

ever so excited, as tonight i am going to see milky wimpshake, this aint vegas, paper cut out and blige pump..all at the same gig! honestly..milky wimpshake and this aint vegas.. and it's all happening to celebrate pete dale's birthday, who is one of my all-time heroes as the co-founder of slampt records, and member of milky wimpshake, avocado baby and red monkey, as well as his excellent solo outings..

so so so excited.

alreet and that..

so, here i am in newcastle..sorry to everyone who's been hassling me for taking so long to post, but the stupid internet hasn't been working and at the moment i am stealing wireless..hee hee heee.

anyway, all is well here in the north..if a little cold. am currently recovering after a stupid weekend that involved too much alcohol, too much work, not enough food and not enough sleep..bah. course is going ok, if a little stressful - should really be writing a 600 word definition of 'modernism' at the moment, but it's a lot more difficult than it sounds, and i'm now stuck on word number 423..

here is a picture of a lovely window on the landing in our house:

nice, yes? well, i like it..also here are two of my housemates, hannah and nicola - they are very lovely:

that's nicola on the left and hannah on the right..this was just after seeing field music at the cluny the other can see it got them quite loved up.

not much else to report really..have been walking into uni and work, eating relatively healthily [no microwave!], and drinking far too much wine for my poor stomach to contend with, i think.

more soon, i promise.
