A lack of colour

I was reading blogs and one of them announced that Little Britain USA is being launched in the US today! I’m afraid they’ve sold out though and I miss Little Britain soooooo much. I’m still going to try and watch it as soon as I can find it online. Gimme some Marjorie Dawes RIGHT NOW. Ooooo and according to the trailer, Paul Rudd is acting (: I love Paul Rudd.

I’m still breathing

Oily food at 5am. Check.

Pimples, which appeared overnight. Check.

Three very tired girls who watched everyone go to sleep and then wake up. Check.

A runny nose, phlegm in my throat and a very badly aching back. Check.

Staring at my laptop for 9hrs at a time. Check

Less then 5 hours sleep a night for 3 days. Check.

A deadline today at 5pm. Check bloody fucking check (:

YES! ONE PROJECT DOWN… two more horrific ones to go. The one I’m most worried about? Market Research, its like media research with SPSS and surveys and all that jazz ALL OVER AGAIN. It’s due in 1 & 1/2 weeks. Damn. Next week is going to be hell week. My body refuses to shut down for more then five hours at a time, my body clock is so screwed.

In between all our discussions about females who shop at Dorothy Perkins, our marvelous digressions all had to do with GOSSIP GIRL (: We decided that in order to be Blair Waldorf (Germ and I HATE Serena, thank goodness we agree on that) we need to start wearing slips.

You know the thing that really makes these rich upper east siders look rich is their underwear. Its always matching, smooth looking (because its all satin and silk), elaborate – with garters even, and they seem to have slips under a lot of the things they wear.  So yes, first we shall wear slips and lacy panties then we shall find our Chucks and the meaning of life.

This is what happens when you put two big GG fans and another who has watched the first season (so knows enough), in the same room for 19 hours without any sleep. I also started being really crazy at around 4am, I was talking to the cat, dancing to Pharrel Williams and craving for apple pie ice-cream. I think next week will be worse.

ILS #2

with one comment

Crushes come and go, but true love remains. Here’s some people & things I believe I’m truly in love with. LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES. 

1. Zooey Deschanel

2. Edward Norton

3. Vampires

4. Pantyhose

5. Irina Lazareanu

Numbers 2 & 3 are so hot, they should be illegal.

This week is going to be shitty because my first project is due this Friday. I’m going to be spending like 48 hours with my project mates – such bliss. I can’t wait till the weekend, although I’m not a fan of the sun I feel like I could do with some, and bridge always sounds good.

I love Sundays.

with 2 comments

I love Sundays, and its general lazy feel. Its the day to recover from hangovers and late night sat sexcapades. Its also the day to meet your best friends and discuss causes of said hangovers and adventures from the sexcapades. On this particular Sunday, I’m feeling so freaking sedated, so let me share some things that I am currently in love (or lust, sometimes I just can’t tell) with. 

1. School. I know that I’ve been whining incessantly about my projects which weigh so much it feels like an extra person is sitting on my shoulders (eeew, like shutter), but all this recent PR that my group has been putting effort into is actually paying off.

For two whole semesters I was an antisocial person with a permanent “Don’t talk to me, bitch” face and I really only had 4 friends. BUT this semester, things are different! My group and I have decided to make more friends, and now I know the names of about 15 people. Its still a very small number considering the fact that we have 160 people in my class/course, because we have no tutorial groups, but its a start!

I’m actually beginning to feel like I’m in school, full-time, not some part-time course I’m doing with the hope that it will make my life better. The thing about uni, like my lecturer said, its very easy to not be a part of it. You can just walk into class, late, sit for as long as you want, leave whenever you like, nobody really cares about you or your attendance anymore, so its really about the people you meet. And I like the people I’ve met, maybe things really will get better in the next two semesters.

2. Catchy catchy trash. Like this.

Its I kissed a girl, btw. While searching Youtube for this vid, I also chanced upon this.

Its a remix called I kissed a boy, and the vid is full of pics of men kissing. I know some straight girls who find that hot, so this one is for you my little sluts (:

3. Old Hollywood Glamour, clad in panties and a shiny bra. Burlesque dancers, pole dancers, the professional really glam ones, seriously, so damn hot. I’ve always been a huge Dita Von Teese fan, also I’ve been reading alot of blogs with videos and pictures on this style, very nice to look at, really.

4. This picture, from 1994. Seriously, this is like the hottest. picture. ever. I don’t even like her that much. Johnny is schmexy.

5. Apple pie flavoured ice cream. I think I need to go back to Island Creamery and buy a tub, I cannot stop thinking about how it felt like heaven in my mouth. This is officially my favourite ice cream flavour, it used to be B&J’s Chunky Monkey, but Apple Pie triumphs all. 

6. GG and OTH were sooooo good, OTH is still interesting after 5 complete seasons (amazingly) and well GG just has my favourite on screen couple, so yea, all is good (: I still like Chuck and Blair. They are hot together and apart. Probably because Blair is always so well groomed and Chuck… well he’s Brit in real life and we all know how hot that is.

Somebody, Somewhere

September is here, a new month spells a few things:

1. New Music! So shiok to have so many new-ish albums at one go.

2. Money (: Allowance, pay… more pay. Yay! I’m not broke anymore!

3. My project work is seriously piling up, its quite gross that we went from 70% exams one sem to 40% project work + 50% exams in another. Hello Andy!! 3 projects at the same time, each weighing 40% of my final grades IS NO FUCKING JOKE. Fts. 

4. Better time management needed – project work, bartending shifts, friends, family, its at times like these that I wish I was a rich kid who didn’t need to work.

5. Spring 2009 Fashion Shows (:

6. My TV shows are coming back!! Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and Heroes all have new seasons starting this month – GG and OTH actually start today. I’m so excited. 

7. Time for me to clear my to-do list.


    -Hair colouring

    -Shopping (new season! new clothes!)

Wow, I’m a very busy bee.
