Luton carnival was pretty cool, even though it was pissing rain the whole time. We missed the start because my mum was playing a rifle shooting game in the arcade. Yeah, IDK either. Luton parades are always fun because they spend no money & just let all the school kids run wild in random scraps of fabric. You could see shamrocks & Urdu writing on the side of the floats left over from St Patrick's day & the Mela. Protip: always stand next to the low bridge during a carnival so that you can see all the 'oh shit!' faces when they realise they're going to have to dismantle the top to get through.

My cousin posted me back my phone & packed the box with teabags instead of bubblewrap because he knew my mum wanted some Irish tea. Now my phone smells of tea. The phonecall I made to thank him ended with him telling me he wanted to pat me on the head. I think the reason we have such a good relationship is that we both think the other is adorably stupid. Obviously he's less delusional than I am.

Went out with some memers on Saturday (hi guys, ILU!). I'm never trusting googlemaps again. Oh, sure, I got there okay, but they never mentioned the bit where I'd have to dash through four lanes of traffic & climb over a fence!

Typical conversation with my bf.

Him: I was reading in the Metro last week that people on the internet are playing pranks by linking people to this song instead of what they wanted.
Him: You know what song they're using? Never gonna give you up! I love that song :('

Which ended in us rick'rolling each other irl. IDK which of us has the worse voice. Then I somehow ended up explaining anonymous vs Scientology, using the phrase 'no, a different anonymous community' several times.


Happy Halloween (lol late)

I'm a liiiitle bit drunk right now. Went to the pub with [ profile] roz_mcclure which was awesome. My quick costume was a line of fake blood across my forehead & a T-shirt that said all this and brains. I kept having this moment of disconnect whenever anyone stared at me, like 'what are you looking a... oh.'

And of course now it won't come off. I'm like Lady fucking Macbeth here!


Y Halo Thar!

Went out with the meme on Saturday night. )

And then we walked halfway across town & around a locked gate to stalk John Simm. He's in a play so we pretended we'd seen it & waited outside the stage door for him. History!mouse was drilling into us all the things that happened in it so we wouldn't look stupid (too late) & Becky didn't know who he was so every time someone came out of the stage door she asked was that him. Even the man in his seventies. Even the women. So by the time he actually arrived we were mostly collapsed in a pile of giggles & he must have wondered what mental home we'd escaped from.

Which might be why he looks drunk. He's probably not as drunk as us, to be fair.

Afterwards... )

Oh, & Kerry won the football final yesterday *\o/* Cork yer arse!


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.

Dad is 1337

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.
