It's been an awesome year really. I've no complaints. Much love to all for 2008.
Now it's time to watch the match! Come on the Liverpool!!!
Thursday, December 27, 2007
We also went out for a couple of drinks in the pub together as a family on Christmas eve. Now that was bizarre, but thoroughly enjoyable. My family are awesome and I'm not one of those people who can't find anything to talk about with their family, thank God. Just this morning I had an hour long spontaneous chat with my Mum.
Anyway, I hope everyone had an awesome Crimbo. I spent mine constantly humming this purely awesome tune by Reuben:

So you tell me which are the bad ones and which are the good, because I'm not sure anymore.
- I got my exam timetable.
- I worked last night.
- Liverpool were defeated by those scum-sucking Mancs (okay, so maybe this isn't so subjective)
- I finished buying all my Christmas presents.
- I got a replacement DS.
- I have to miss the match tomorrow night.
And I miss Evan Kidd's lectures :(
- Vic got into Oxford University.

The thing is, I've started to realise that they're both really good mates. They probably see me more than Toni and Vic and we have quite a lot in common. Mainly our love of Football, good films, music and Uni. We all know each other quite well now and have a lot of shared in-jokes. Plus ALL of us have had a thing for one of our lecturers. Hannah (who always goes for older men) is obsessed with Geoff Beattie (yeah, he's the psychologist off Big Brother). Roch had a thing for Warren Mansell, though there's really no justifying that kind of bad taste. And I happen to think Evan Kidd is rather cute (what is it with me and the name Evan) even though I'm 80% certain he's gay *sigh*.
Sadly, next semester I only have one psychology class with Roch and Hannah and then next year Hannah is off to Austria for a year. So I have to savour my time with them before I have to try and make new friends. Oh well.

Mark is one of my good friends and I felt very priveleged to hang out with him on his birthday. He's a real sweetheart, even though I know he'd say otherwise. The big night is next Friday when it's his party, so Wednesday night was pretty low key but still tons of fun.
We chilled at Marks (with cake and champagne. really, I'd like to mention now just how nice Mark's folks are, they never seem to bother about us gatecrashing their living room. when we showed up at their house unexpectedly after the wedding Mark's mum made us all a cup of tea and his folks gave up the living room for us!) before heading to the local pub to get in Mark's first legal drink and take part in the pub quiz. Needless to say, we were fairly crap, but it was such a great night!!!
And the song is called KAREN!!! A song by my favourite band, written by a band I loved about ME!!! I'm so happy!
Karen is wasting time,
Won't pull in her mind,
She runs this pantomime,
Save me, don't be blind,
All the time,
All the time,
She's dying, yeah,
Karen turned away,
She sees no ones face,
Staring into space,
To run away...
Is this near me?,
Could this be serious?,
I need your help,
I need your help
"Karen" performed by Reuben, lyrics by Vex Red

As I turned the corner at the bottom of the stairs, the sheer volume of the music hit me. When I appeared in the doorway, Anderson looked up from behind the bar.
“Hey Avery!” He yelled over the music.
The waitress from the café was perched on one of the barstools. She smiled at me. Anderson nudged the music volume down.
“Avery, this is Felicity, Flick this is Avery. She’s staying with us for the summer,” Anderson introduced us.
“Hi,” she greeted. “Anderson was just showing off his skills.”
I glanced at him.
“I’m showing Flick how to make cosmopolitans,” he explained, unscrewing the top off a bottle of Smirnoff.
“Oh. Well, I just came down to ask you to lower the volume a little,” I turned to leave, but Anderson looked up.
“Hey, come over here, Ave'y, keep Flick company whilst I go grab some Cointreau,” His voice had an edge of pleading, so I turned around again and walked over to sit next to her.
She smiled again as Anderson disappeared.
“I’m sorry if we kept you up,” she said, glancing at my pyjamas.
“Uh, it’s okay.”
This was the whole part of conversations that I was bad at. As I sat there desperately thinking of something to say, Flick looked up. I followed her eyes and saw Isaac stood in the doorway. He raised an eyebrow when he saw me sat with his brother’s date.
“You must be Isaac,” Flick surmised.
“I must,” Isaac confirmed, moving to stand next to me. “I thought I heard you in here, Avery.”
His expression was unreadable as ever.
“I was just talking to Felicity-”
“Flick,” she chipped in, quickly, wrinkling her nose. “I hate Felicity,” she told us, “makes me sound like a rich little Daddy’s girl, which could not be further from the truth, let me tell you.”
She looked Isaac over before speaking. “You know, you look nothing like Anderson.”
I froze suddenly, but Isaac just smiled. “Thank you.”
Flick laughed, lightly.
“Okay,” Anderson announced, reappearing with an orange bottle in one hand and a lime in the other. “I guess it’s four cosmopolitans, then.”
“Not for me,” Isaac told him, quickly.
“Aw, little brother, lighten up. Besides, I need someone to take care of Avery and you can’t stay if you’re not gonna drink.”
Isaac scowled as Anderson flipped the lime up in the air, catching it deftly and quickly halving it with a knife. He squeezed the juice into each of the four glasses as Isaac pulled himself onto the barstool beside mine.
“Okay, one part cranberry,” he rattled off the ingredients as if he’d committed them to memory, adding the conundrum of liquids into the shaker, “one part cointreau, one and a half vodka and last, but not least, a slice of lime.”
Lastly he plopped in four ice cubes before firmly screwing on the top and shaking the mixture. All this he did whilst shooting Flick flirtatious smiles.
Beside me, Isaac rolled his eyes.

But the thing I've noticed about boys is that they're not so bad on their own, it's when they're with other boys that they become ABSOLUTE IDIOTS!
I do have other things to blog about (like amazing Saturday), but it will have to wait.
A list (by Silverpistola and Norman) of boys who aren't absolute bloody imbeciles:
- Jamie Lenman
- Lucas Leiva
- Jesus (because he technically was a boy)
- Owen Armstrong
- Blonde Guy
- Isaac Hanson

It's been that way for me for about three years now, ever since I bought 'Racecar is Racecar Backwards' when I was in my first year of college. I remember I used to listen to that CD every morning on the way to college for at least six months. And then in my second year I got 'Very Fast Very Dangerous' and played that to death as well. This June I got 'In Nothing We Trust' (indefinitely my BEST birthday present, cheers boys!) and it was just as good. So it made sense that when I got home on Friday, and found myself close to tears, I reached for the Reuben.
I'm past saying angry things about Today's Community Church. Because saying them changes nothing. I want to regret it all, but I can't because I got Skinny out of it and I could never regret our friendship. And Toni got Kyle. Part of me knows, knows that I've damaged them both by keeping them there, but I can't regret it.
I watched them on Friday night. And I was repulsed. Once I wanted to go back, but it was a moment of weakness. I can't ever go back, but finally I realise that I don't fucking want to! I thought those people were my friends, but they were nothing. I was nothing to them. They hurt me and made me feel used and wrong, all wrong.
That's why the things I'm doing right now are a bad idea. I know that but I can't stop. I don't have anything to prove, but I'm still trying. My life is full. I have my awesome friends, my fucked up family (whom I love despite their fucked-up-ness), my Uni, my talent, my job and job compadres. I can't understand the way I'm acting or why. For now, I'll try to remedy it with... MORE REUBEN!
Moving on: Myspace. Argh, why does everyone take their stupid myspace so damned seriously? Vic basically begged me tonight to make one just so she could put me in her top friends (and knock dickface Rob out of her top 4). NO! I swear I will never have a myspace! I'm happy enough with this blog. I don't do the MSN thing or have a Facebook and I'm happy that way. If anyone needs to find me, seek me out in the real world, for goodness sake.

It doesn't matter though, because the gig itself was awesome. Incubus are such a great band. Vic asked me what my favourite song was and I honestly couldn't name just one. You know what was pretty special though? They played the song that is my (pen)namesake, Pistola. Very cool.
It was great hanging out with Vic and Toni, too. My two bestest friends in the whole world. I'd be seriously fucked if they didn't get along.
Ooh, guess who's got her student loan?? Woot!
(Here's me after the gig on the train home. A bit dishevelled.)

Bands seen: Hadouken!, The Maccabees, Cold War Kids, CSS and The Smashing Pumpkins.
Highlight of the day: The Smashing Pumpkins playing 'Zero'. Pure awesomeness. And The Maccabees playing 'First Love'. Oh no, that's TWO! Sue me.
It was HOT! Really hot. So hot that no one could muster the effort to do anything. We pretty much camped out in the NME Stage before the Maccabees and Cold War Kids came on. By around sixish the heat had subsided and everyone was cheerful (if not sunburned). CSS were certainly an experience and well worth missing most of NIN for. Lovefoxxx's catsuits were stunning. And the Smashing Pumpkins, seriously, just pure awesomeness.
