This!

WMMHT:
Got pretty much everything sorted. Just need batteries, a couple of carebinas (sp?) and maybe a hexi stove from town tomorrow, where I'll see Sam, and all I'll have to do then is pack. Found absinthe in Asda, so that, plus 2 bottles of home made wine, plus 35 pints of beer... if I don't take anything home with me, it means I won't remember half the festival
If it sounds good, listen to it

Bad Manners are awesome. Listen to Lip Up Fatty if you haven't already, one of my favourite songs by them.

Bad Manners played in Manchester not so long ago, though I didn't find out until a week or so after. Kicked myself for missing that. :(

I've been listening to them all day now even though I really should have been listening to all the unsigned/sophie bands to decide which to see.

I feel pretty embarrased that I didn't know them since I consider myself to be a pretty big ska fan.

I still find it amazing. Your cat's older than I am :|

I wish my dog would last that long. She's six and has already passed the average life expectancy for a bullmastiff.

Perhaps that's something to do with this.

Fucking humans.

Managed to drag myself out of bed early today so I can get to work a few hours before the other noisy oiks arrive, which means I hopefully should be able to leave around lunch and finish packing. :D

That's a cracking age for a cat! Nice one! :D

(but privately, that may mean keeping mine in tuna for another six years at least! :lol: )
