Halloween was never a thing for me as a kid, but any excuse to dress up :D Also I still have a baby goth inside me and halloween is my favourite time of year. October is halloween month for me.

My mum would make us sit in the house with all the lights off and the curtains closed and would go mad at us if we even touched the curtains to look outside while trick-or-treaters were about. She was completely frightened of Halloween. It was fucking weird.

TG: I'm in the worst mood. Shitty day at work and fucking gallbladder pain is not how I wanted to start my 5 days off for my birthday. :evil:

Halloween was a pretty big thing in my family. My birthday is two days later so I always had birthday/halloween parties. I love it, havent been to a party for about 5 years and im super excited that I'm going to one with Ania this year!

Worst thing is I live on a street with young families of kids mostly under 10 so all the families have to play ball for the sake of the kids' fun and all the kids naturally end up taking part in the trick or treating in order to fit in as well. I hope they do it on the Saturday when I'm at the gig and not tomorrow. Lights will be off come sundown in any case.

I think I will think twice about buying things off Amazon Marketplace again. I bought a PSU which I may have mentioned was faulty, I tried to return it to the tune of £38 postage back to the Netherlands (ikr) and the vendor was not available to sign for it when it was to be delivered. So its been sitting in a holding station in the Netherlands since the 17th October, and I am a bit worried that its lost for good. The fucking thing cost me a tonne, and its quite hard for me to come by that money so yeah. Oh and I have to do all the ringing for redelivery if it comes to that. ParcelForce are a fucking disgrace.

Hangover's so bad I had to put myself to bed again. Haven't had a "can't even life" one in a while.

Yeah, can get into too much of a drink - kebab - hangover takeaway cycle which basically undoes all my effort in the gym. Still got Damnation to power through next weekend.

my computer apparently doesn't have permission to open my old hard-drive. Google isn't of any help :( pretty much consigned to the fact that all my photos and work etc is lost forever. Stupid machine.

Edit:
Worked in a different USB port, who knew :?

Pretty much the only one going to Paul Gilbert tonight barring an old school mate who lives in Bristol. Bet it's gonna be a total dad/sausage party. Blue jeans, oversized t-shirt and bad posture.

I know it's a bit petty but most of my last fm scrobbles are missing. I had well over 100k, now I only have 17k.
What gives? :?

Really wish I wasn't up so early. Need lessons in being more English when it comes to timekeeping. Be late.

The smoke alarm on the landing is chirping every few minutes as it needs a new battery, don't have a step ladder tall enough for me to reach it.
