Writer's Block: Vampires, again?

Is there a TV show that everyone around you watches that you really don't get or like? If so, what is it? To what do you ascribe the odd fascination?

I know a lot of my flist are going to hate me for this, but I just don't get Supernatural. I've tried watching it several times (honest!) but I just couldn't get into it. I can't get into anything to do with ghosts, vampires, werewolfs or anything like that.

But, each to their own - I'm sure plenty of people wonder how I can watch countless episodes of ER full of blood, guts and gore!

Questions meme

Questions from hamarakissa 

1. Where's your favorite place to go to 'get away from it all'?
Just home really. As I live on my own, it's quite nice to be able to shut the door on the world and just do whatever I like; watch tv, read, listen to music. Although when 4 walls get to much, I love walking along the seafront into Brighton.

2. Name 3 songs that make you just wanna get up and Dance.
Wow - Kylie Minogue
You're So Damn Hot - Ok Go
Footloose - Kenny Loggins

3. What item can you not live without? And why?
It's a cliche, but my iPod/stereo. Music is my escape, my comfort, and my protection from the outside world.

4. Do you have any pets? If so, what are their name(s) and what breed are they? Are you more a cat person or a dog person?
No, as my flat is quite small and I have no outside space. I'd love to have a house rabbit, but I wouldn't want it to never go outside. I'm not really a cat or dog person, but I could see myself as more of a cat owner.

5. if you won 1 million dollars and it was tax free, what would you do with it?
Can I have 1 millions pounds instead?! ;)
Pay off my debts
Buy myself a flat - nothing huge or fancy, just big enough for me
Book myself and my friend on next years NKOTB cruise (assuming it happens)
Take my Boston-New York-Chicago trip
Get my teeth fixed
Book myself into a sleep study to crack this insomnia once and for all


Writer's Block: Dream on

Do you usually remember your dreams at night? Do you analyze and/or record your dreams in your journal? Are there any recurring themes?

I never usually remember my dreams which is a shame. Maybe it's because I'm such a bad sleeper. I do remember having a dream about Shane West the other night, although it wasn't even that kind of dream! Boo!

I'm not sure there's much in analysing dreams, but this hit fairly close to home.

To dream that you are crying, signifies a release of negative emotions that is more likely caused by some waking situation rather than the events of the dream itself. Your dream is a way to regain some emotional balance and to safely let out your fears and frustrations. In your daily lives, you tend to ignore, deny, or repress your feelings. But in your dream state, your defense mechanisms are no longer on guard and thus allow for the release of those feelings that you have repressed during the day.

I don't like Mondays.

Do I have to go to work tomorrow? *whiny 6 year old voice*

Can't I just stay at home and watch episodes of ER, read my books and listen to John Mayer? (yes, I am becoming slightly obsessed with this man. I don't care). I've had a dodgy stomach all weekend as well and I can't figure out why. Maybe I should stop eating white bread?

And my boss is off for 2 weeks so I'll get all her emails. Great. Being a grown up sucks.

*whinge over*
After a false start on Wednesday, I have 3rd row tickets for Scissor Sisters at the Brighton Centre in December!
I'm going to find that man that is the right shade of bottle tan
A man that smells like cocoa butter and cash

Race for Life

Took part in Race for Life for the first time on Saturday! It was a really mixed day of fun and emotions; 3,000 women and girls and their supporters all dressed up and playing in the sunshine, but each one of them doing it for someone they've lost or has been affected by cancer.

I was 'racing' for my Aunty Diane, who died of cancer of the oesophagus in 2006. She was only 55, had only been diagnosed 6 months previously and left behind a husband, 2 children, 2 grandchildren and many other people who loved her.

I completed the 5km course in around 45 minutes, which I was quite pleased with given that there were some very steep hills and the path through the woods is very uneven. I even put a little jog on coming down the hill at the end!

Yesterday I spent the afternoon making cupcakes which I took to work today to 'sell'. I asked people to make whatever they thought was a suitable donation, and made at least £30. Together with my sponsor money, and the money my sister had been sponsored before she pulled out, I'm hoping we'll hit the £400 mark.

Music month

Finally, new music!

Just downloaded the new Scissor Sisters album, Night Walk, for £5 which is a total bargain.

There's new albums from Feeder and Kylie Minogue next week, then Chris Shiflett's album the following week. My iPod is rejoycing.

And how amazing was Kylie on stage with Scissor Sisters at Glastonbury last weekend?! Wow!
(I think there just might be a gay man inside me, screaming to get out...)

In-a-nutshell entry

Managed 8 hours of fairly decent sleep last night. It did require (prescription) sleeping tablets, the fan on a timer so I didn't wake up with the heat, an eye mask and ear plugs. Good job I sleep alone.

Mish came down last weekend (have I really not done a proper entry since then?). We watched the England game on Friday night *pitiful*, and then took our usual walk along the seafront into Brighton on Saturday for lunch and a ShakeAway. We also managed to find almond M&M's in Cyber Candy *nom* and bought some cupcakes at Angel Food Bakery *good times*. The evening was spent watching My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and What Doesn't Kill You, courtesy of bloemche . Oh, and we also had a look round the Wild Planet Exhibition on the seafront; some amazing photography including a great shot of the West Pier before it burnt down.

Random crap:

The heat is too hot. It's going to be 30 degrees tomorrow apparently. Do not want! I really need to clean my flat, but it's far too hot to be hoovering.

I'm seriously considering applying for a job that a colleague resigned from last week because he found it too stressful. Am I nuts? Answers on a postcard.

I really want a new tattoo but I can't decide what. Think I might go to WSHmiths and get a tatttoo magazine for inspiration. Not sure whether I could bear for someone to touch my foot for long enough to get a tattoo there.

Gorillaz were mediocre at Glastonbury, whereas U2 would have been phenomenal, hope they make it next year. Looking forward to see Kylie on stage with Scissor Sisters tonight.

The doc has reduced my pain killers, so hopefully I can eventually wean myself off them. Time will tell if the surgery has worked.

Going to a preview screening of Heartbreaker with Carole on Monday evening, looks like a bit of cheesy rom-com fun. Really want to see Toy Story 3 although I'm not sure when it's out.

Would have loved to have gone to see Macca in Hyde Park today, but I just can't justify £70 before fees. I might have streched to it if I hadn't seen him before, although I wouldn't have wanted to be in Hyde Park all day in this heat.

Really, REALLY over the World Cup. Sorry sports fans, but I just don't give a toss about it. The sooner it's over the better. I will be doing my supermarket shopping during the England/Germany match tomorrow.

My iPod keeps skipping songs for no apparent reason; please don't die on me!

Need to find a decent Red Velvet cupcake recipe, and some edible red glitter.

That's all. Peace, love and jelly babies.
