I bought that album today. It is awesome...although I've got a feeling it won't be for everyone considering the amount of prog/psychedelia involved. I've been on a bit of a psychedelic/prog binge recently, so I love it.

I met Levi Roots and got his latest book signed today. Once BOA is out of the way I'm gonna try some of the recipes. Some of the Caribbean variants of non-Caribbean dishes look interesting.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

I'm 17 anyway. Ever since late 15 I've always been thought to be 18 or older. Actually, I had one yesterday and she thought I was like, 20? :?: I don't know whether that's good or bad tbh.

You could just say "Fuck Off Chugger!". That works for all ages.

In my first year of uni (when I was 19), several people assumed I was around 26. That hurt.

Christ I hope I stay 'about 20' for at least 10 more years.

I got approached by a really really camp charity worker on the way back from the optician one day. He started calling to me from the other side of the pavement but since I had to take my lenses out for the check-up I couldn't see him at first. I told him I was sixteen and he did some strange hand gesture and just said "too young for me anyway" and pranced off. I was pretty confused.

When I was 18, I asked someone how old they thought I was, and they said 24. Shame I still get ID'd EVERY time.

Some 20 year old girl who had a job taking people out on a boat and letting them ride in the donut rings thought that my sister and her friend (both 14) had met at uni. She was like 'wut' when they told her how old they were. The thing that pissed me off was that she thought I was 20... I could have made a move!

I've also discovered this great ska band called 'bad manners'. No idea why I hadn't heard of them before.

I'm always very confused when I get IDed. It happened a few months ago, I must have been clean shaven at the time or something. It was wrong.

Before I turned 18, I never got ID'd and apparently looked 19/20
I get my hair cut, the fringe gives me a baby face and now everyone thinks I'm 16
:ugh:

I get ID'd fuck all these days.

I think it's the general worn look I have on my face these days. Hard earned through a shitty sleeping pattern and never seeing the sun. And a fairly deep voice.
Which has reminded me of how many people said I sounded exactly like my brother on Sunday, which confused and annoyed me.

I haven't been ID'd since I was 23. I miss being 23. At 28 I'm old and haggard.

A621 to Bakewell then A6 to Derby/A38 might be worth a go. You needn't touch M1 at all.
