HOLY SHIT THIS BEING A RESPONSIBLE ADULT THING IS MOTHERFUCKING TIRING.

Why would you schedule a football meeting at the same time as a funeral THE ENTIRE TEAM has to go to. In the SAME PLACE. WHY.

(hello lj and dw!)

Happy Christmas all!

So, my cousin managed to fall down five whole steps at his works Christmas party and brain himself. He came out of the coma the next day and started speaking the day after. Apparently he's not making sense all the time, but that's normal for him. And like, of course this is an awful thing to happen and I love the guy and hope he gets better, but seriously. Five whole steps. You moron.

This is the yuletide fic that was written for me and it is really wonderful. Other great yuletide fics include one for A Study in Emerald, Kate Beaton, Hyperbole and a Half, Iron Fist, Northanger Abbey, two Toby Daye fics and this MASSIVE Haven fic.

Also, have a look at this.


Finally, because I am an idiot and forgot to say before, thank you very much to the person who bought me paid time ♥

My dad and his mate marshalled a race recently, which involved them spraypainting 'HAZARD' over all the dodgy bits of ground in the park. Because they're idiots. They would probably have gotten away with it except the guy clearing up after them is a Police Sergeant. Because they're idiots.

So tonight I went up to the running club with dad, and we were greeted by "There's my suspect!" The guy was handing his phone around showing everyone photos of the mess they'd made. Fortunately dad's mate was away on holiday, so we just put all the blame on him. "I can tell there was a third person involved in this!" said the guy. "Know how I can tell? Because it's spelt right!"

Weekend, fic

I visited [profile] tazzio on Saturday and we had a barbecue in a fire bucket.



Which ended in us playing 'lets see what shit will burn' and getting called pyromaniacs. Also, Taz has recently discovered alcohol and got completely wasted on two cans of cider. It was sort of impressive.

And I wrote fic. Not quite sure how that happened.

Oh dear.

My father has gone and told everyone that I'm playing in Wembley tomorrow. I mean, I am playing in Wembley, but not in Wembley, you know?

OH GOD I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE A-TEAM. IT IS RIDICULOUS. BUT LOOK AT THEM! LOOK!

Just a normal day

Today I voted! And then helped my dad break into a building site to see why his company hadn't been given the contract. It's because they're still sorting out the sewage system and they haven't started the groundwork yet, moron.

Do I want to know why there are several rolls of duct tape on top of the microwave?

Some fucker cut the wrong cable while tarmaccing a local road (it wasn't my dad! I swear) so 40,000 people have been without the internet for the past two days. I missed you guys :(

After watching True Blood, I managed to read the first six Sookie Stackhouse books in the past three days. They're really short! And I had nothing to do yesterday. I am so looking forward to season four, if they keep the plots similar. Book four really embraces the crack. Also, book!Eric is even funnier than TV!Eric, and I love TV!Eric.

Twins, y/n?

Also, I love hanging out with my old Uni roommate. At the weekend I went with her to see her friend's band (they were good! And they have an awesome name) we started watching the first band on. And were remarking on the singer's beard. I mean, this was a full on "We have to go baaaaaaaaaack!" beard. And you know how you have to speak rly loud at gigs so the other person can hear, and sometimes the music stops mid sentence and you find yourself shouting in a momentarily silent club and you go D:? Guess what happened just as she told me "That guy needs to be shorn!"

Go on, guess.

GOD, I LOVE MY FAMILY

Today was the funeral of the last great aunt. I am not over because lol £100 plane tickets. Apparently my mum got a phone call at 10:20 am from her brother, who was supposed to be at the funeral, which started at 10. "I've been a bold boy," he said. "They left me behind!"

He was supposed to be getting a lift from another brother, who was slightly distracted by this happening to his neighbours last night and forgot. Poor uncle Gerry couldn't drive himself because he got his hip replaced a few weeks ago. He's the one who when he saw the epidural coming shouted loud enough for people the other side of the hospital to hear "THAT'S THE LAST TIME I'M GETTING FUCKING PREGNANT!"

Oops?

Our captain hurt her finger practicing catching before the match on Saturday. It's broken. After the match we all piled on top of her and. Um. Broke two of her ribs.

We might need to be a bit more careful and/or lose some weight :D:

SNOOOOOOW!

The local kids are building giant snowmen and using them to block roads. Oh Luton, never change.

I read the book years ago but hadn't seen the film since someone pointed out that if they'd just stuck Frodo on an eagle they could have got to Mordor in five minutes. So I was apparently quite annoying to watch it with, starting by calmly asking why they couldn't go get an eagle but by the end I was just pointing at the telly and shrieking "EAGLE!" every so often.

I love Gollum. Unfortunately my boyfriend started getting jealous and went "Hit him harder, Sam!" every time I mentioned this. He's jealous. Of Gollum. So I started pointing out all the gay bits.This didn't work the way I planned because he joined in. I finally got him when he asked were they all going to have an orgy on Frodo's bed. "I know people who write that."

"They what."

Today we had a public argument about his car that ended up with him yelling at me (in the middle of the street!) "It is not small! Shut up!"

My life is full of small pleasures.

When three ex-footballers from your rival team approach you and ask for directions, the correct response is to send them way off the wrong side of town, y/n? Or else I'm just a bad person. Which is very possible.

I think Ray Parlour tried to hit on me, but I'm not entirely sure. I'm really good at repressing things like that *shudder*

They may still be out there, looking for their cars.

My family are crazy.

It has been an eventful year for my mother's family. And by eventful I mean hilarious. First the IRA gatecrashed my great uncle Vincent's funeral. Because apparently he was in it, which he kept really fucking quiet.

Then my cousin Tommy got engaged. But decided he was going to invite one uncle and one aunt from each side of the family. To be honest, this by itself would have given enough of a laugh to last the whole year. But then his father dropped dead three days after his sister announced her pregnancy engagement. You can so die of shock!

Last week my great uncle Bill died. Who apparently was a multi-millionaire living in Las Vegas, and was the original owner of the Galtymore and Electric Ballroom clubs in London. I swear to God no one ever tells me a fucking thing.

And then today my mum was on the phone to her brothers. Who all have wedding invitations from Tommy, who has changed his mind. And mum doesn't have one. Her exact words were "That little bastard! I'm going to fucking kill him!" She still wandering the house, occasionally muttering under her breath "That little bastard!" It is the funniest thing ever.

It's scary when I'm the normal one.

My mum just ran into the room shouting "Did they show Ronaldo crying yet?" She fancies him.

Oh Ronaldo.

My music just got more eclectic

I've started listening to hip hop. Blame for this will be apportioned later. You've sort of got to listen to it in a different way than a lot of things I listen to, with far more emphasis on the lyrics than the tune. You can't just let it wash over you, you've got to pay attention.

Why I was trying to explain this to my mum, I have no idea. I certainly wasn't expecting the reply, 'Oh, like Irish music then?'

Uh. I guess? Maybe?

'Can you make me a CD of it, then?'

And that's how my mum spent the evening bopping aroung to NWA, Kanye West & Gym Class Heroes. At least she's not listening to fucking Westlife again. Or singing along to Marilyn Manson.

Also, I find this completely adorable.

My dad is in the middle of a flame war. On the internet. My dad. Perma!n00b. Of course what's actually happening is that he's dictating & I'm sending emails myself, then he's enjoying the results. I'm giving him the benefit of my 'wisdom' by showing him the best & most efficient ways to go about this. For example:
Other guy: blah blah tl;dr zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz for many pages
Dad: NO U

This is so much fun.
