How bloody difficult it's proving to arrange going to Newcastle on public transport on a Sunday for Northern Darkness fest! Even 6 months ahead the train is a ridiculous price and the coaches I'd need to get there on time leave almost 2 hours before the local buses/trains that would get me to them start... so would mean getting a taxi that would cost more than a night in a hotel to get there on time! Gah! Public transport in this country is shit as fuck, especially on Sundays!

That's scary that I could probably fly there for cheaper.

It would actually be cheaper for me to fly to Belfast and then on to Newcastle from there (there's no direct flights between Liverpool and Newcastle) than it would be to get the train!
It'd be easy enought to get the Megabus if the fest was on the Saturday but it being on the Sunday creates all kinds of problems because local public transport doesn't start until 8am on Sundays...

Matty from Neuroma's said I can crash at his the night before but even then, the trains to Manchester for the Megabus to Newcastle don't start until after the one I need to get will have gone! It's looking like the easiest (and, oddly, the cheapest) option might just be to go up on the Saturday and pay for an extra night in a cheap hotel. I was trying to avoid having to do that because I'm currently planning on flying straight out from Newcastle to Eindhoven for EMM and didn't want the extra expense... but it is actually looking like the cheaper option at the moment...

I feel bad, but my depressed friend is pissing me off. She's been depressed for a while, but she literally does nothing about it. She says her job depresses her, but she refuses to look for anything new. She says her boyfriend depresses her, but she stays with him. I have no issue at all with her being depressed. In fact, I had major depression issues myself and I dealt with them. That's why her attitude annoys me.

Stomach is being rather dodgy. I've been really nice to you, you fool. Why are you doing this.

Inquisition did not make it to London, what a total waste of money.

Really? Was it just Von then? Glad I didn't end up going if so.

Yeah, I didn't watch them though as if you went in the venue you couldn't get a full refund. Although then when I queued up for a refund they said they couldn't refund e-tickets at the box office. I've emailed the venue about it now but I just hope I can get at least some of my money back. It's mainly the train fare I am annoyed about though, well and the lack of seeing Inquisition!

Rich and I went to the bank today to get an appointment sorted to start a joint account. Turns out I need a National Insurance number despite Rich getting told the other week that I wouldn't. He called the NI people up, and now they've set me up for an interview for next Tuesday.

I realised that things weren't going to be a piece of piss, but I just really want to go and curl up and die about all of that. All I wanted was to get WoW, a phone, and some little bits and pieces sorted for the time being - not faff around with all of this other shite. I only just unpacked the stuff I brought from home as well.
