so yeah thats it :@


:flame:


That's harsh. You should totally gig with us if we ever play Bristol, and we get the chance to choose bands. I'll be at your show at the Fleece, if nothing unforeseen happens!



hahaha that would be serverly EPIC, you need to play Hobbits, it just needs to happen hahaha, atleast youll DEFINATLY get a bigger thurn out than the Intense gig :D
the Fleece gig is going to be amazing cause My SIlent Wake are playing (and its Free)
are you bringing joe along like the Intense gig would be wiked to chatch up with you both again, and im sure Rob(our drummer) will be buying you a drink again, and not the cheap water-piss beer either :P

How I needed you, how I grieve now you're gone, in my dreams I see you, i awake so alone.

Yeah, I suppose Bristol is nice, especially the downs.. But like, its a shame about the people (the ones i've encountered anyway).


Well, I'm only in Clifton by the skin of my teeth; just off the Triangle, innit... not the proper posh bit. You have a bookshop? How bizzare! If i'm ever in need of literature, i'll be sure to pop in, hah. There's a few dodgy people about though, yeah. Was walking along the other day, and saw some ancient guy sitting down clutching his chest like he was dying of a heart attack or somesuch. We asked if he was alright, he didn't respond, then after a pause he shouted at us to bugger off. Which wasn't very nice of him... we were only trying to help.

The old man who's always playing the penny whistle makes up for all the bastards, though. He's awesome!

Free gig = good gig! Joe is being homeless in Hampshire, I believe. So he won't be there, alas. But i'll be twice as inebriated to make up for it!

AVG is playing silly beggars. I don't know if their server is borked or something's gone wrong at my end but it doesn't want to update.

Sunburn. :(

I don't know what the fucks up with me. I'm just so... down. I'm never usually like this :| I'm usually full of joy.

It's just making me angry at myself. I nothing to be down about.

I blame hormones.

Apparently Bristol is twinned with Tbilisi.

Not sure which needs the humanitarian aid the most at the moment.

My elderly cat is very poorly. Have been up with him most of the night as he isn't breathing properly. Will need to see a vet this morning. It's not looking good. He's at least 16 years old if not more and normally never ails, apart from his arthritis. At present he's sitting on the back step as he loves the outdoors but he can't walk any further into the garden.

Only got back to work yesterday after more than a few weeks off. Oh well! Let's hope they are sympathetic. I'm sure they will be tbh.

EDIT: Was as I thought. We lost our old Maximus today! It was tumour that had caused fluid to gather round his lungs apparently! Very sad! :cry:

Somerfield. You have to look over 25 to be able to buy a lottery ticket without suffering the indignation of being asked for ID. I'm 22 and hadn't bought it.

I had to walk another couple of minutes to the newsagents (no problems in there). That's a good 5 calories I won't get back!

Thanks Jenny! I am bearing up. 'd had him for over 14 years so it'll be weird for while but the other two cats are keeping me company.

I'm so sorry to hear that Lisa, losing a cat is like losing an old friend. :(

Ack, sorry to hear that Lisa. I guess it'll be odd not having him around, but at least you have the other cats.
