Nine Black Alps

Myself and Toni went to the Nine Black Alps album signing yesterday. They were very lovely. and their new album is bloody awesome, I reccomend 'Heavier Than Water', it's an amazing song. They performed it live along with six other songs.


Plus, there was a guy queueing behind us who was from Staffordshire Uni... yeah, he was cute.

Vic's 18th

I've wrote about this day like a hundred times, so I'm just gonna post the pics. They are fairly awesome.
The Birthday Girl in the morning!

Everyone in Blackpool (except moi, the elusive photographer).


Space Cadets.
Prepared to be soaked, everyone on the Valhalla.
Five crazy peeps (Chiv, Becka, Biggsy, Steph and Vic) on the Tango Ice Blast.


Mark posing with a horse. Nothing unusual there.

Steph protecting Toni on the Ghost Train.

The happy couple on wild mouse (er, was this photo hard to get? Nigh on impossible!)

The elusive photographer is caught on camera! (Note: my sunglasses. I took my responsibility as photographer VERY seriously.)

The twins!

Everyone (except Kyle) queueing for Space Invaders.

Biggsy, Kyle and Toni enjoy their chips (especially Biggsy, what is in those things, dude?!)


After a long day of being the birthday girl, Vic finally gets her chippy chips!

The Ultimate iPod Challenge

I would like to thank a certain unnameable friend for setting me the ULTIMATE IPOD CHALLENGE! Okay, the challenge is to listen to all your songs (either in order or on shuffle) without skipping any. You can't start again (which means you have to be very careful when charging) and you're only allowed FIVE skips.
So far, I'm on 61/4100 and I've already skipped once. Right now, I'm enduring the YMCA. I must be crazy.

Further proof...

...That boys are stupid today! Only a boy would paint penises and a sign saying 'For Sale' with his mate's phone number on his mate's car as a joke!

Yeah, well, backfired on it didn't you? What a jerk.

Daft Punk

I would recommend Daft Punk for any sudden lapses in creative energy:

It was more than impossible to ignore the noise coming from the bar. After half an hour of unsuccessfully trying to get to sleep I sat up and swung my legs out of bed. As I wandered down the stairs, my suspicions were confirmed; the source of the noise was definitely the bar. And the noise itself? Daft Punk.
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.”
I laughed.
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.

Mute Math...

... are awesome.

After a long day at Uni, it's all worth it when I get home and listen to my new Mute Math EP. If I could reccommend any music right now, it's Mute Math.

Awesome Saturday

Last Saturday was the Wigan vs. Liverpool match. I hadn't been looking forward to it, but it was actually awesome! I've wrote this down once and told a fair few people, so let's just put it this way:

- I got to watch 4o minutes of the second half and saw the goal!
- I saw three players warming down later on (Finnan, Voronin and Cissoko)
- I saw Rafa Benitez give his interview for the journalists in the press corridor!
- Whilst waiting for the Wigan manager to finish his interview so I could get back to my kitchen, I saw Sami Hypia and Javier Mascherano!!!

Sweet, huh?

Boys

Boys are SO IRRITATING! As much as I love many, they still drive me crazy. And why is this? Well, I have an older brother who bugged me when we were growing up, then I had idiot boys at school to annoy me and now I am one of only three female KPs at the stadium, which means I am often surrounded by STUPID BOYS!

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
- Link
- Blonde Guy
- Isaac Hanson
