Has anybody ever managed to get one of those little r/c helicopters to fly in a straight fucking line? Getting mine to stop falling out of the sky every ten seconds would be a nice start.

Was going to see Free At Last (Free and Bad Company tribute) at the Greyhound in Beeston on Friday, but they pulled out at the last minute. From what the bar staff were saying, there was some sort of car crash on the way to the venue and the drummer lost part of his thumb.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

Not to validate the stereotype or anything, but what logical reason is there for making the bed, other than the desire to make it look tidy? It's not the same as washing the dishes, or hoovering the carpet. There are no consequences whatsoever of not doing it.

I only ever perform this task if I'm staying over someone else's since it's polite.

It just always seems to make the bed more comfy to sleep in in the evening if it's made.
I spend quite a bit of time going in and out of my bedroom in the day as my CDs and books are in there, and it always makes me feel better seeing the bed tidy rather than messy.

Parents arguing again and I'm being dragged into the middle of it, being called selfish for wanting to spend sometime on my own.

Every weekend there has to be some sort of a row and it's doing my head in.

In shared houses it's pretty awkward sitting in the living room doing nothing, so I stay the bedroom, and there's no sofa, so sitting on the bed is the only option really, and I don't like sitting on an unmade bed. :D

The kettle in my house appears to be leaking, and I'm getting sort of "Fuck's sake" and tutting over it. It might be my kettle (that I donated to the household), but it's not my fault!

Coughing.
Yes. I probably love Opeth more than you do.
