We live like this
This weekend I :

  • Tidied the spare room
  • Finished reading "Sugar Rush" by Julie Burchill (a Christmas present from addedentry, who knows how much I love reading about hot teen growing-up action)
  • Gave a huge stack of books to the Amnesty Bookshop (thanks to addedentry for taking them round there)
  • Worked at Oxfam Books for 4 hours
  • Renewed my MMOC membership
  • Exchanged the shirt my mum got me for Christmas (which was a size too big) for one which was just as nice but did fit and cost 7 pounds less (so I now have a lovely purple shirt and a £5 Next voucher)
  • Had a nice half-pint of Fat Cat stout at the Winter Ale Festival
  • Tidied the rest of the house a bit
  • Spent lots of time talking to juggzy and inventing scurrilous internet memes
  • Overheard a physics lesson
  • Finished a jigsaw
  • Played violin duets with kaberett
  • Ate lovely noodle soup at Kym-moy
  • Drank lots of wine
  • Did lots of knitting
  • Drank Black Dog mild in the Cambridge Blue and strange wheat beer in the Kingston Arms
  • Sang in choral evensong at Peterhouse
  • Saw Robyn Hitchcock and the Minus 3 (i.e. three of the Minus 5) play live at the Junction (support band: The Eighteenth Day of May)
  • Bought a signed Robyn Hitchcock LP for a fiver which doesn't actually break my New Year's Resolution because the proceeds went to Médicins sans Frontières so it's actually a charity donation, honest

Tssk. No mention of the guy who was giving me the eye. Oh, that's what I did. I shall mention it, then.

What was his name again?

Well, I never actually saw him giving you the eye, so I can't be sure we're talking about the same person, but from the half-heard comments that we tried to exchange at the time I think you mean Peter Buck from REM. addedentry or covertmusic may know better, though.

Now if it had been Robyn Hitchcock himself, you'd've had to fight me for him. And hey, he wears glasses! Why didn't he wear them at the gig, eh? Dammit.

Yup, he was giving me the eye. A full five second stare as he went by, and then as he came back again. The eyes may have dropped southwards momentarily.

He's my new boyfriend, you know.

OMG numbers involving multiple combinations of one! He's wearing that shirt.

I may have to dump my new boyfriend for Robyn. No, you can't watch.

No, you can't watch.

Can I join in?

BTW I have just embarrassed myself on ultraruby's poll, and it's All Your Fault.

Nobody will know, unless you tell them, so I'm not telling you I put Voice of Sauron down, again.

Here, I've got some pictures of you and me and The Boy, vey drunk, you and The Boy in pyjamas, and me groping The Boy while you sit there smiling. Can I put them up?

Put them up where?

You appear to be channelling someone else, there.

That appalling pigeon fellow, I have no doubt. I know how much you disdain the sort of crude innuendo and foul language that ruffian uses constantly. I apologise unreservedly, I don't know what came over me.

You should probably take it for forensic testing, then.

Is the Burchill readable without wanting to spork your brane out? Is it readable a second time?
j4 From: j4 Date: January 23rd, 2006 04:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, I liked it, because it's got OMG HOTT TEEN LESBONYMS in it, and bits of it were actually quite funny. (NB I have a high tolerance for crap teen school-fic.) But the narrator oscillates wildly between being a vaguely believable fifteen-year-old girl and being (surprise, surprise) Julie Burchill.

I don't think I'd read it again, but not so much because I couldn't bear to as because I know what happens now.

I'd be interested to know what a real live teenager thought of it, though. I may have to lend it to one. Muahahaha.

"lesbonym" so needs to go on spellfecker.

I am in awe of your tuit supply.

I fear I may have blown the 2006 tuit supply. ... Possibly for everybody on our street. Are the Lib Dems not recycling tuits yet? Tchah, that's the last time I vote for them.
