2.20 flat rate would be nice. A ten minute bus journey costs me £2.60 for a single, £4 something for a return. If I want to go to Brighton (20 odd miles, an hour and a half) I think it's seven or eight pounds for a single, but it's been a while since I got the bus down...
Buses are so expensive nowadays. I remember when a return to Brighton was £2.50 ;___;

I remember when I could pay 35p for a single into town. That was when I was young enough to pay half-fare though.

Can't remember whether I ever managed to do the trick of paying half-fare into town by claiming to be under 16, then getting into a nightclub by claiming to be over 18.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Judging by the comments on Facebook the Community Carnival is on today. Which means a procession that usually features 100s of kids banging drums will be passing by my flat at some point this morning. Wonderful.

Aaaaand there they are, right on cue. :|

Same people on Facebook saying RIP every time someone famous dies when they really wouldn't otherwise give a shit about them.

I've moved into a lovely new house with some girls we know and am feeling like a guest. Too scared to interfere with anything they already have going on.

Plus I'm knackered and have an essay to do for tomorrow, whilst also surrounded by bags of what can only be described as the average house's contents that need unpacking. Fucking hell.

I moved in with my closest friends 12 months ago and I still feel like that. Like I don't want to upset the Status Quo.

Partly a reason I'm hopefully moving out soon, if my house purchase goes though

Agreed to sell my 7-string to a guy in Hungary who's getting his Hungarian friend in Bath to pick it up from me. Currently haven't settled on an agreed time, partly because he's funny about driving from Brislington where he works to St. Andrews during rush hour en route to Bath. Can't really be meeting him anywhere else because he's giving me cash and I need that security. Could have done a Paypal transfer or something but I was just wary of the whole foreign buyer thing in case of scams and shit. Probably would've been safer than I thought but oh well.
