Ordered tickets for Kurt Schwitters Ursonate on May 13 and John Cage Jun 7 from BBC. Not sure if anyone wants to join me, but there are three spare tickets. (dependant on getting tickets of course...)

If the weather holds...

Does anyone fancy a blossom viewing this sunday? I want to go and sit under the blossom, japanese stylee, and get drunk, eat sushi (or whatever is at hand) and set the world to rights.

You know you want to. Who needs Slimes?

I need:

*someone to come to Radio 4 recordings with me as Targ is a busy revision type being

*another job

*not to oversleep in the morning

Get a load of the quality of this!

I am currently marking my Y11 coursework folders and have just come across this in an essay on 'A View From The Bridge':(sic)

They want to get married but Eddie won't let exchange their vouls in marriage... Eddie and Beatice Carbon are marride...Eddie's family start to fall apart so he falls and dies... the standoff resolved into a conflict... ad nauseam

You see what I have to put up with?

I did this while waiting for my shitty yahoo account to work...

You scored as Hedonism. Your life is guided by the principles of Hedonism: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life’s pleasures as much as you can.

“Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die!”

My holiday is ending...

Faced with my inability to find my way around the pimped rig and log on to MSN, I have decided to update this to waste time.

I appear to have come down with a cold. I think this may be from the vast amounts of standing around in the cold, in a crack den, 'looking lively' on the video shoot.

Last night was my first trip to Shoreditch and the excitement within. Normally one would venture east for a curry or some leather shopping. We hung out in a crack house. We even saw two of the occupents: tiny stunted wee things, they were. A bouncer called Ted was employed for our protection and much weed was smoked. It helped with the looking lively. Ish.

I was disappointed not to see either Timo Maas or Brian Molko (sp?), but hey, there was a FAT and I mean FAT clown there. And an *uuuugly* transvestite. Rather like 4am at slimelight, which was the vibe he was trying for, apparently.

I can honestly say that if I never hear Timo Maas again, I will be happy. 'The first day of the rest of your life', my arse. Derivative techno by numbers more like.

At least it's another one of those things to do done.

I'm writing a scheme of work for English Language at the moment and I am covering Beowulf. I don't suppose anyone has a copy of it on VHS or DVD I could borrow and copy, do they? I think it would be a nice free teaching session and I, personally, would be immensely grateful.

Before I was feeling bleak

Then targ started to find jobs for me.

Then I cooked haggis and discovered budvar in the fridge.

So now we're playing cards and mah jongg, eating scottish fare and drinking booze.

It all helps!

Huzzah and yipyip.

We are going on our first proper skate of the year this afternoon. w00t.

I don't think skating around the train station in Madrid really counts. It was more of a 'well, we have dragged our skates all the way here, we should really use them' type affair.

Praying the weather bucks its ideas up so we can nic the pic on monday. Hyde or Regents Park, anyone?
