ER-20s. Musician ear plugs that actually do more than just lower the volume.

I feel like having a drunken chat to random people, but none of my friends are on Skype or WoW :@

I entered my new address on eBay last night while I was very drunk, rather foolish I know, and put the wrong county, but everything else was correct. It should be fine, shouldn't it?

you could you know, just go on ebay and change it?


A friend of mine did something similar last night. She booked a train ticket to Dublin on saturday and entered her student house postcode with her parent's address in Newcastle, so it's tossup which the voucher to redeem the ticket at the station will get posted to. Silly girl.

If you've got the right postcode, and first line, it'll generally get there alright.

I mean I sent the address to the seller when I paid. I've sent him a message but he might've posted it by the time he reads it.

as joe said though if you got the postcode right you should be fine. Postal services tend to look at the codes more than anything.

Dilemma. My old clique from school are arranging (but not including me) to meet up in our old hometown to catch up. I haven't seen any of them in three years, but the date they're considering happens to be the date I will be in town to see my brother's play the next day. So I am available on the day they're suggesting. Do I chime in and say "Awesome! I'm around then too!" and wiggle my way into their meet-up on the chance that they will actually want to see me, or avoid all possibility that they might turn around and be a bit confused that I'm suddenly 'around' again after three years and just keep quiet? :?

I dont know what your friends are like, but I'd say send one of them (maybe the one who you consider yourself closest to) a little message saying 'hey saw you guys were meeting up, sorry I've not been around much but it'd be really great to catch up with you guys, do you mind if I tag along?' or something. I'm sure they'd love to see you
