It would be really, really nice if things would stop catching fire when I plug then in.

I'm exhausted trying to figure this particular person out.
I've never had it before that after 6 months working and travelling with someone I still feel completely ill-at-ease around them, intimidated and shy and have no idea what to say or do to connect with them. It's driving me insane.

Today fucking sucked. Got way too much shit wrong and it stressed me out and I was annoyed with myself for being visibly stressed, even though it's all okay at the end of the day and I'm in good standing, etc.

I spend way too long thinking about and writing emails of the remotest importance and boom, there goes the evening. Also this ice-cold Zywiec isn't agreeing with my brain.

Being rushed around consequently meant I was dying for a poo for a few hours today to the point its made me feel rather ill. I managed to lay a cable in Cheshire but the feeling hasn't gone away. Its currently a two parter, sequel was shit but I am hoping that it's like the Robocop trilogy where the last one was properly good and makes you feel better.

Had a run of posters printed for a gig I'm promoting in Plymouth...managed to somehow send the only PDF of the poster in existence with the wrong date on it.

Really quite irritating.

Facebook needs to work out an algorithm or something so you can choose specifically to hide all instances of couples tagging eachother in the comments of everything they find funny/adorable/amazing.

Everyone is moving out of my flat and I can't afford to move.

Just put a massive dink in my 5-string by being clumsy with one of my other axes. Thing's gonna look so battle-scarred just sitting in my room. Never even gigged it.

Idiot me read that Devourment rather than Embryonic Devourment were playing Netherlands Death Fest and spent best part of six months excited for a band that were never even playing. I can see the funny side, but then Katalepsy and Darvaza dropped out too who I was both looking forward to, making it a bit more annoying.

Plenty of the remaining bands I want to see have partial clashes of about 20 minutes of 40 minute sets, yet the two bands I cannot stand in Bloodbath and Triptykon have no alternative playing at the same time. I have seen them both before, the latter three times, and have no intention of giving either of them another chance.

Out of five others who were meant to be going with me none are now, and I have to shell out for a 2 bed room by myself due to a dearth of accommodation in the town.

Should still be a good time as I wanna see a lot of bands, but yeah, just a little annoyed.

housemate over-watered my plant when I was away and it's looking like it's not going to make it. Literally had it a month :(

I'm sick of "holier than thou" gig promoters not putting up set times for shows until the day itself (if at all) and saying when asked "turn up early and support everyone". At least a few days notice is good for people who work and travel in from outside London who might love to be there at doors, but would need to rejig work plans in order to get there.

100% agreed. There is no excuse for it.

Nothing more terrifying than when a stranger (well, friend of housemate) suggests "we should jam sometime". We were both drunk at the time so I presumed nothing'd come of it, then housemate follows it up. Uggggh.
