… well i am now so stop your moaning

So Barcelona was brilliant but it seems like it was a lifetime ago now. Really really fun I would put some pics up but I haven’t got my lead for the phone. Really wasn’t very many places we didn’t go to. First day was great we arrived and it wouldn’t stop raining but this didn’t mean that we couldn’t have fun. Me and two others went out and explored the city and went to the Arc d’ Triump (can’t spell), random metal thing, giant gold horse thing, woolly mammoth and the small cathedral. Which was equally as beautiful as the Segrada Familia. Then we went out and had a nice meal at some place Piccasso used to go to. Best quote of the trip for me “It’s got bones in it” when eating fish, what did you expect.

Second day went to the Nou Camp hopefully the first person ever to have worn a Macclesfield shirt in the Nou Camp but probably not. It was pretty big and had lots of shiny trophies but I shall not buy your replica shirts for 87 euros. So after that had a little explore around the Olympic Village which was very nice and had lots of cats in it and a nice big palace. Then trekked up to the cemetery and you could see the whole city. It was very beautiful.

Third day visited Park Guell it was vastly over-rated it was just full of screaming Spanish  school kids running about everywhere. The architecture was good though. The came the worst bit of the trip got call  saying there was an independent record store near-by. Although it was near it meant hopping on three different metros to try and get to it and of course by the time we get there they close for a ciesta. But then we went to the beach and it was all sunny and lovely had a little kick about and walk in the see. In the evening went to the Picasso museum and acted all pretensions and analysed all the paintings to try and get what Picasso was drawing. Then I had this fucking huge lobster paella, lets just say there was a lot of gauging. Momentous occasion bought my first ever pint (well it was litre really)

Final day went to Segrada Familia which was pretty big to say the least. I though the scaffolding that they’d done was superb to say the least. Spent the rest of the day looking for presents and cats and people who look like people I know from home. Then got on the flight and came back to sunny England.

So when I was back routine as per usual begins. Above is only a brief mention of what happened in Barcelona and I’ll do a picture blog soon (maybe). So routine began and seriously I can’t think of anything really important that has happened over the last couple of weeks. Last week I got told that i should quit sixth form by one of my Geography teachers. I’m not having any of that good blow to the confidence especially friends opening results letters and having U’s inside. Gotta before when summer comes round.

Speaking of summer I now have tickets for three different festivals aside from Glastonbury I will now be going to both Dot to Dot and the end of May and Underage at the start of August both promise to be fun and line-ups for both and looking too shabby so far. One band I hope to see are Veronica Falls who I’ve mentioned before on here there new 7″ came this week and god is the b-side good. ‘Stephen’ is the first song in ages which I’ve had on repeat for about ten times in a row. Haven’t heard a song this infections since i first heard ‘Second Date’ by Vivian Girls.

In rather belated news it was very sad to learn the news of the passing away of Keith Alexander while I was away in Spain. I would just like to say what a great manager he was for the club and how massively missed he will be by everyone who is associated with Macclesfield Town. It felt strange on Saturday not to see him standing on the touchline in which he was such a  large presence. The lads have done him proud since his death and it was a moving and very moving tribute to him on Saturday afternoon. And it was really good to see everyone play-well and get the result at the end of the game. Something that we haven’t been able to do much this season, it seems like look might finally be on our side.

Ratings:

  • Brain: 8 (didn’t have much to do but when he did he dealt with Bury’s chances with some great reaction saves)
  • Hessy: 7 (solid and dependable at the back as always)
  • Brown: 7 (same as above)
  • Morgan: 7 (controlled the back line never looked like anything was going passed him)
  • Brisley: 9 (absolutely flawless in defence and going forward didn’t put a foot wrong all game)
  • Bell: 7 (another strong solid performance)
  • Draper: 6 (a bit reckless at times and a little bit anonymous would expect better but he has just come back from injury)
  • Rooney: 8 (his passing and his ability to keep hold of the ball was second to none)
  • Daniel (didn’t play long enough to get a rating
  • Sinclair 7 (did well setting up the first goal)
  • Wright 7 (scrappy goal could he finally hit form though)

Subs

  • Lindfield: 8 (thats the best performance I’ve seen from him since he joined in January showed composure to score the decisive second)

May the memory of Keith live on

Keith Alexander 1956-2010


Tomorrow i fly abroad for only the third time in my short existence after previously flying to Spain when i was about 18 months (cos’ i remember that don’t I), then off to the U.S.A and Bahamas a couple of years ago and to La Rochelle in France. I like planes, I hope I get nice food on it if they have food. Somehow I see the food not being good even is there is any last time i flew with easyjet I got caught in 11 hour delays didn’t get back home til 4 in the morning. Then since I don’t sleep in cars so i went bed at 5 managing only 3 hours sleep cos i don’t sleep full stop.

Anyway Barcelona should be good I aim to be one of a few or maybe even the first to where a Macclesfield Town shirt in the Nou Camp. I shall spread the spirit of Nat Brown, Ricky Sappleton and Jose Veiga throughout Spain. Looks like at the moment we’re heading towards a tenth game without a win as things go from shite to really really shite. Fuck Macclesfield now i’m going to the continent and then i’m coming back and i’m gonna see a ‘really really really cool’ new band in Hanley on Sunday evening so Monday I will literally be walking death. But hey who needs sleep when you’ve completed all the stickers on your McDonalds buy 6 get on free for cups of tea. I shall walk into McDonalds in Hanley with pride as I hand over my sticker chart thing and then skip along down to the venue with glee (i don’t watch that by the way).

Today I also got to stand for 3 yours holding a tape measure near a river, a certain geography teacher who I don’t like wasn’t very happy, I was, I’m lazy so it suited me just fine. So what else have I done this week before i ditch the internet for a few days. How will I live without news? I need to know whats happening, it’s kind of why I could never go on big brother. Friday night i went to Crewes best live music venue the box in which i had the pleasure of watching Arctic Monkeys and Oasis… oh i mean to local bands whose names I can’t remember, i swear this guy in the first band was trying to put on an accent to try and look like Alex Turner. Then the second band was just a guy who would probably bum Liam Gallagher if he had the chance. Then I almost got attacked by some drunken women who was dancing too hard her handbag game from less than inch from smaking me in the face, compensation please. Never it’s not me, i’ve said before and I’ll say it again. Other fun moments include waiting 10 minutes at the bar and a crazy man telling me he had the same shoes as me more than once. Apart from that it was pretty boring. TESCO’s is always fun though I got milk cos we got scared of crazy drug people walking behind us.

Final point for today, why are the BBC going to shut down 6Music do they realise that this will leave a gaping whole in the discovery of new musical talent from within this country. I’d say 6Music is a hell of a lot more important than what Radio 1 does for new music cos’ you’ve just got Zane Lowe sitting in his big fat chair playing whatever he wants and then brands it new music. I’m talking about bands on really obscure independent labels or unsigned acts writing great songs which no one will hear on terrestial radio without 6Music how long would of it taken me to discover Slow Club to name one example. Yes we have the internet and websites such as Drowned in Sound are brilliant at exposing new artists but how will they break through to the nation if when no one is able to listen to them on one of the easiest ways to. The BBC commissions crap on the such as Hotter Than My Daughter a programme made by idiots for the mass idiot public who are happy sitting on their arses watching this bollocks. Is there even any cultural integrity within the BBC anymore or are we just happy to let are lives ruled by celebrity culture and who Katie Price is fucking next. I’d like to think the British public are better than this but i am quite obviously wrong. I may not pay the license fee but surely I have the write to an opinion. These are just a few reasons why you should sign the petition athttp://www.petition.fm/petitions/6musicasiannet/1000/ so we can have one ounce of happiness before Nibiru destroys us all

Have a good time doing what you do this week, expect photos and reviews of things to follow.

So this week I have developed a new stalker for myself *sighs*. Except this time it’s not some deranged psycho girl it’s a small year 7 boy. He won’t shut up, he just keeps going “Hi, Jim Walker” to be on the bus. How on earth does he even know my name, who even told him, it makes no sense. Today him and his friends thought it would be a good idea to take photos of me. I know I may be ginger but I’m not some sort of freak show.

On a less stalkerish note my Veronica Fallls 7″ arrived making it the first slab of pretty black plastic to arrive this year. It’s like mini-christmas when anything like that arrives in the post. Cos’ you just get all this exitement about it arriving and oh it’s just brilliant. Also musically related tomorrow night I see LC! for the third time and I would like to congratulate them on selling out Liverpool Academy 2 it’s at least 600 capacity so well done to them. Now I am indulging in an LC!athon listening to ‘Sticking Fingers Into Sockets’, ‘Hold On Now, Youngster’, ‘We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed’ and ‘Romance is Boring’ back to back. So tomorrow night promises to be epic unless i get stabbed by a Tinchy Stryder fan cos’ he’s playing next door.

Last weekend went to some peoples houses (thank you it was nice) and we saw plenty of vagina…

http://www.chatroulette.com i ruined it forever, sorry for even introducing it

enough said

Last weekend also saw my first macc game in just over a month and it doesn’t get much worse than that. We have no money and  nothing in-front of goal what are we supposed to. We should of got at least a point cos Shrewsbury had about two shots and made one count and fair play it was a quality goal. They seem like the kind of side who could easily grind out games like that cos they know they’ve got the fire power. I provided the comic relief on Saturday. Ball goes out of play comes to me go to throw it back into play. Throw it at the assistant manages head. Story of my life. Lost on Tuesday night away at bury took the lead and then lost it, once again Keith whats going wrong we shouldn’t be taking leads against bigger clubs and throw them away like that. Hes gotta get it sorted or else his head must roll. To be honest who are we gonna get whos any better. Mark Hughes is still available isn’t he…

PLAYER RATINGS (vs. Shrewsbury)

  • Brain 6 (had nothing to do all game and was hardly at fault for the goal)
  • Hessy 6 (didn’t really do much wrong got into good positions but for some reason no one gave him the ball)
  • Brown 6 (solid as always)
  • Morgan 6 (same as above put in a few decent tackles)
  • Reid 6 (looked dangerous at times but nothing really came of it)
  • Bell 6 (put in a good amount of effort but some of his passing was shoddy at times)
  • Bolland 6 (played alright in the 36 minutes he did play)
  • Daniel 5 (pretty much anonymous should buried an early chance to take the lead)
  • Sinclair 5 (disappointing as usual)
  • Sappleton 4 (absolutely useless all over the pitch messed up most of the chance we could of had)
  • Lindfield 5 (doesn’t look like he has the strength to play at this level, gotta give him a chance though)

SUBS

  • Brisley 5 (never looks comfortable playing at right-back)
  • Rooney 7 (came on and made an instant impact made some absolutely cracking passes why didn’t he play from the start)
  • Wright 5 (still don’t understand what he actually does)

Went for a walk around Rode Hall with my dad on Sunday. Going somewhere like that really makes me feel so proud of where I’m from cos’ it’s just beautiful. The flowers and what not, looking out onto the lake. Really feel a sense of belonging I could never ditch my roots, considering flowers are probably growing on my great-grandmothers grave which is across the road from the hall. I hope I get to be buried somewhere as beautiful as that.

I blame Mr. Russell (he let us go 15 mins early) you know all I wanted was walk to McDonalds so i get a cup of tea to edge a step closer to completing my little card that gives you a free cup of tea after you’ve had six. So I notice some girls who used to go primary school and I’m just like no i’m not going near there i don’t want one of them to notice me, that way I don’t have to engage in conversation. So thats the end of that analogy.

Let’s go back week. I ended up in Warrington last saturday and no trip to Warrington is complete with out a visit to Ikea. And god is is brilliant. So many bookshelves, one question though, whats with all the pregnant women? With there husbands who look like complete twats who probably get paid fuckloads for doing fuckall. One day hopefully I will be like them and I will go and I will buy many beautiful frying pans. ‘Took’ plenty of free pencils, gotta be done really hasn’t it.

Sunday saw the start of my band Controversy at the Winter Olympics and it’s sounding good, we started work on a song and also managed to work on an awful cover of ‘Who Can Say’ by The Horrors. Other than that I did nothing last weekend. The week has progressed nicely so happy that February is finally here, 2010 begins now. Glastonbury headliners announced this week and to be honest I think they’ve done a great job at selecting three pretty varied artists. U2 to appeal to the more older rock fan, Muse to appeal to the youth and then Stevie Wonder who’ll undoubtedly make this years Glastonbury one to remember.

On the topic of music and gig tis’ one week until I see Los Campesinos! for a third time, you don’t need me to tell you how I feel about that. The plan is get in about 1:00, then the Winter Olympics opening ceremony is on at 1:45 brilliant. Followed by a home win against Accrington in the afternoon (i wish, we’ll probably get raped). Then my dads birthday on the 17th. And I would like to congratulate him in advance for lecturing at Cambridge University in September so proud of him after all that he/we’ve (as a family that is) been through.

and may Jedward be with you

Just so you know I use this blog as a way of channeling my raw emotions, many people who really know me will understand this. So if you are reading this don’t read into it too much, I often feel completely different the day after I’ve written such things. And if you do think I’m depressed I’m not, growing up the way I did and with my dad working for various mental health services the I do know what depression really is from personal experience, you’d know if i was depressed which I’m not. Mental Health is an issue i feel very strongly about.

What i wrote on Friday night has raised up a few issues and i did actually have the chance to go out but I can’t be bothered spending time with people I don’t particularly like. People are seeing the same things I’m seeing especially with one particular person who has become everything he ever hated it’s now impossible to tell who he really is. People have told him and told me that he’s being a complete dick yet he takes no notice and that is truly saddening. From going from someone who I felt I could completely trust to an absolute no one in my eyes in a matter of weeks.

Second point; Another friend of mine has recently been getting on well with a girl (well from what I’ve heard). People keep presuming things about this individual. You can tell that he obviously doesn’t like and I don’t mean to speak for him but I find this a bit harsh and from what I’ve heard he doesn’t like it.

Anyway my life Saturday I had a thrilling trip to go and watch Crewe play Darlington, don’t think I’ve seen a more a boring 3-0 win. What made it worst was we were with all these people who obviously had no fucking idea about football. They weren’t football fans. Well for some reason I had my photo take with these twats behind this new advertising hoarding with Calvin Zola and Mat Mitchell-King. So don’t be surprised if you see me and my horribly short hair in the paper this week. Then during the match we had these kid sitting behind us just shouting your mum at each other etc. “I sued your mum she was that bad”. Reminds me of how I may have acted at their age. Everyone grows up in time… hopefully

Also spent the weekend getting into Telepathe, quality band should have got into them a lot earlier but then I say that about every band I get into. Lot of pressure on at school at the moment lot’s of essays and I’m just failing Lit coursework, on a D/E at the moment. On a positive not hopefully my Sennheiser headphones have arrived today, if not then they better arrive tomorrow. Reviews are also looking very good for ‘Romance is Boring’. and Controversy at the Winter Olympics is looking good, see how Sundays rehearsal goes then we may or may not add another one or two members, probably just the one for now. Hopefully lay something down that I can put up here.

NME award nominations were out this week and once again it doesn’t surprise me what the idiotic readers of that magazine (me included) have put forward. Oasis best British band takes the piss, seriously what the fuck. Other shockers include Arctic Monkeys nominated for both best and worst album, Hero of the year… Rage Against The Machine. No, just, no. There are however a few good nominations. LC! for best blog, Matt Bellamy worst dressed and then thats probably it. The most confusing thing of all though is this award and the nominations

GIVING IT BACK FAN AWARD

  • Kasabians free Vlad the Impaler video
  • Danger Mouse leaking ‘Dark Night of the Soul’ (fair play to be honest)
  • Lily Allen’s ticket treasure hunt
  • Arctic Monkeys giving away ticket in oxfam (you know what i mean and fair play to them as well)
  • Vampire Weekend giving away a free song

The last one is the worst, for how long have bands giving away free songs from albums, it’s hardly revolutionary stuff is it, a treasure hunt is nice but it’s hardly ‘giving it back to the fans’ and ooohh a free video like giving away a free song but with flashy images with Noel Fielding in them. This is why this award is just a fucking joke. Yeah it’s nice to give away free things but it’s hardly worth giving an award for some doing it. It’s like awarding someone for going for a poo.

Heres a Spotify playlist of bands and songs you should be listening to if your not already

I know this is really obvious by the way

I think MEGA deserves capital letter cos’ it a fucking huge word. Anyways i have noting to do it’s 10:15 and i really can’t be arsed watching that pathetic excuse for a football match on telly and i ate all the minstrels. On the subject of food today for my lunch I had a Mr. Kipling’s lemon slice and a packet of Worcestershire sauce crisps. They have to be my two all time favourite snack food and i don’t care if my favourite flavour of crisps is Worcestershire Sauce MEGA yummy! So for the past three days the rest of the year has been on stand down i of course had no exams and ignored Mrs. Bulmans advice about reading all the notes about Hamlet and The Tempest. Bad idea James. So yeah I was sitting there doing fuck all and watching videos of LC! from back in October and you can actually hear me screaming along to ‘The Sea Is A Good Place To Think Of The Future” it’s quite embarrassing to say the least. Made me realised I should go less crazy at gigs in the future.

So I have now almost complete Mario Kart 100% only a few more characters and karts i need to unlock and i suppased the 7000 point mark online (only for it to be all taken away in a matter of races) but i did find this

http://www.mubos-md.com/licensemaker/newlicense.php?in=mupxmg6d&id=63279&token=e1a364d87f567eced486ab9d1a26e61a

Failed at trying to watch all series one of heroes in three days, I think I got to episode 13 or 14, almost did a whole season of Football Manager 2009. Fuck Fulham thought I’d plunge in at the deep end with Stafford Rangers took them from 21st to 9 only one point behind the play-offs with a game to go against Workington it’s a long shot but I hope I can do, I’ve always been a pretty decent manager in the lower leagues like the time i heroically took Redditch United into the Blue Square Premier before leaving and fucking up Bournemouth in the same league.

Finally I really like the idea for my new piece of English Language Coursework it’s a story based around my experiences with love (what experiences…). So yeah I’ll post that on here when I’m finished. Hope everyone has a totally MEGA wicked week!!!

Today you know I was kind of thinking it would be shit and it was. Didn’t start of shit school was cancelled for the first time in the 13 years i’ve been trapped in the British education system. So hey why not go and see my friends three miles away and go have some fun. Of course i take my 12 year old sister along with me because didn’t want to leave her by herself. So we walk the three miles over. Only to be generally ignored by everyone I try to make conversation with (except for a select few who always have time for me). Why??? Am I boring, is it because i brought my sister along, is it because i’m slightly shy and introverted, i don’t know. Either way we left to go see my nan and granddad who always have time for us. So now I’m back home in a better mood and listening to LC! “I’ve learnt more from toilet walls than I’ve learnt from these words of yours”

Finally finding the time to write about Christmas now and to be honest it was pretty mixed. One highlight was going on a huge walk with my Dad around where my Gran lives in the snow which was really lovely. Christmas Day itself wasn’t too bad we went to a proper traditional church service which was quite quaint and nice. Got a new turntable but I’ve taken it back cos’ it doesn’t work all you get is all this distortion and it’s horrible. Boxing Day game and it all kicked off. I hadn’t seen my mum go that mad since my parents got divorced. For some reason my mums boyfriends son Ben whos 22 thought it was acceptable to just be a dick to everyone all day hes even more angry and people all the time that I am. So my mum shouted at him “Your ruining Christmas” well more screamed. Then we all sat round the table for a beautifully prepared lunch. I also decided to book tickets to see LC! again in Liverpool next month.

Monday came around and it was possibly one of the best days of the year. Macclesfield Town 4-1 Crewe Alexandra, doesn’t get better than that

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_3/8419317.stm

So i spend the rest of it just playing Mario Kart and god is it annoying, it always has been and always will be, especially when you take a decent lead and the you’ve got all these shells flying and your just like ARGHHHHH!!!! FUCK OFF!!!! Another house party was nice still don’t celebrate new year, you know so what it means nothing to me. At the end of the day were still living on the same planet no one makes a big thing about September 23 do they. Or do they i’m sure some people might but i don’t for me that would just be another day just like New Year is for me.

*cries*

Hell> Newquay

September:

What we do with our EMA

You wouldn’t get that from someone like Morrissey would you…

November:

… cos hes the kind of guy who disappoints this many people, and rightly so he had every right to walk off that stage

December:

Searching for wild things

So here I am and listening sitting on my slightly fatter arse writing about this year. ooohhh lets see how much i can actually remember

January: I did work experience in the library that was really fun got to make a border to go all the way the children’s reading area. The people there were really nice i probably in true librarian fashion acted too shy. Also remember getting really excited about Emmy the Greats debut album.

February: Don’t really remember much of this much, living out the last torturous months of compulsory education dying of boredom thanks the Mr. Stancombe being told to constantly revise everything which of course i didn’t. truly discovered the wonders of the Independent Record store.

March: Dreamed of going to festivals and like youth hosteling in London during the summer in science lessons. Established some new ‘friends’ like eveything friends come and go and they certainly have and i think really my friendship group is now split up to four groups

  • Select few people who i generally really care about
  • People who I like but will probably end up sadly loosing touch with in coming years (thanks for the memories)
  • If I never saw you again after today i probably wouldn’t care
  • OH JUST FUCK OFF AND DIE ALREADY

Dunno why remember playing football a lot going and watching Macclesfield quiet a bit

April: Still haven’t started revising probably just far too busy playing Football Manager to really give a shit. Won the MLS with Chicago Fire on my first attempt.

May: School finished exams begun this of course meant little revising and fuck loads of free time. Me and most of my friends got abused by some pricks in the park. Still remember getting smacked on the back of the head by this prick. Went out for a horrible meal with people who now mean nothing to me. May always equals Eurovison and I love Eurovision!!! Exams didn’t go too bad so far only really had a few. Spent was too many boring afternoons in the park

June: finished exams had this great all nighter to celebrate we walked around Sandbach and ended up going to a motorway service station at 2:00 am got chased through woodlands etc. That sort of tomfoolery good times. Had some great day by myself just eating crap and watching Jeremy Kyle and Loose Women and playing a little Football Manager. Boring days in the park with people who bore me.

July: Is my birthday everyone forgot, ended up going bowling and TESCOS for choc ices late in the evening, slowly begun getting sick of most people. Went to see Let’s Wrestle weirdest gig ever, tried to talk to complement someone who had a johnny foreigner t-shirt on the bus on the way home but she couldn’t hear me cos’ she was to busy listening to her ipod (but it’s o.k. cos’ i know her now anyway). Went on holiday to Newquay with Mum, her boyfriend and sister. Didn’t really enjoy it went to a lot of boring pubs and locked my sister in the car which meant whenever she moved it set the alarm off, cried with laughter. Otherwise pretty boring holiday

August: First ever festival went to Underage it was really fuuuuun even it was full of moronic kids saw The Horrors for the first time and they were awesome. Other than that it was just sort of finishing of the rest of the summer. Got to see Eoghan Quigg on what was a very regrettable evening. Went on holiday to Berwick with Dad and sister a holiday i enjoyed a lot more went to the Fringe Festival for the day that was fun. Spent sometime on nice beaches etc.

September: Had a girlfriend, didn’t have a girlfriend. Had a stalker, didn’t have a stalker. Started sixth form things started off o.k but as always everything goes down hill and all the new found excitement I had disappeared spent to long just mourning the end of my pathetic relationship. Went to Milton Keynes with a load of Leeds fans don’t think I’ve ever felt more out of place.

October: Booked tickets for Glastonbury which i can now actually pay off fully next Wednesday. Saw Golden Silvers for a second time, saw Slow Club, saw the beautiful Los Campesinos! and the met most of them which was really special for me

Novemeber: Became a part of musical history as I was there the night Morrissey got bottled in Liverpool continued meeting lovely people. Got to go watch Macclesfield more cos i can get in for free now and got to see Johnny Foreigner. Lied to my mum felt really really bad. Realised how much i hate the works of Shakespeare.

December: Got told to fuck off by cribs fans. Made new friends. Discoverd the wonders of Denise Lewis’ Heptphlon, playing football in the winter. School ended, went to a few house parties and i’ll write more about general christmas period next week

Well christmas certainly came early for me yesterday when i found out that the forth coming third album by my now all time favourite band Los Campesinos! was leaked. And I know i shouldn’t have downloaded it but i did gave it a couple of listens then deleted it and found it all on youtube so now i can’t really ignore it. Gareth if you ever read this i am very sorry but you and your bands music is just far to good to be ignored. Don’t wanna talk about it too much considering that it hasn’t been released but i can certainly say it will be up there when by Albums of 2010 comes round this time next year.

Heres a personal favourite from it: http://hypem.com/#/track/994457/Los+Campesinos+-+Straight+in+at+101

Haven’t really found time to blog much recently I’ve either been too busy or just not aresed about doing this but now I am aresed and have found the time. So we broke up from school last Thursday and I decided to skip Christmas curry

Reasons behind doing this

  1. I wanted a haircut
  2. The queue was fucking huge
  3. Didn’t wanna mess my nan about cos i said i’d go see her at 12:15 (only to find out she didn’t know I was even coming over)

I love the start of the holidays it means i get to watch Jeremy Kyle every single morning, I don’t think I can ever get tired of DNA tests and lie detector results and watch the J-Dawg shout at horribly scumy people. So yeah Friday i went to a house party really enjoyed myself, might have drunk a little too much but not so much that i was being sick on people coats, well I wasn’t even sick so thats good.

Sunday me and a friend went on a huge walk around Crewe Golf Course it was really nice but sadly we had like barely any snow, the course look beautiful though. Then we sat and listened to the chart show for the big show down of Joe McEldrey and Rage Agaist The X Factor. And of course Rage won, now you might as well call eveything thats alternative pop music.

Read this if you are a Rage fan/moron
