Cute little campaing from UK Resistance - it gets my full stamp of approval anyway!.

Not really been up to much, back to part time hours in college, gave out my first proper assignment today :)

I fell all grown up. I've also been all domestic godessy and made very lovely apple and cinnamon muffins.

Naturally I've not been so housewifely that I've put away the laundry or anything but it's certinly a start.

Went to see Kiss Kiss Bang Bang last night - I really urge everyone to go see it. FACT are showing Fear and Loathing in LasVegas tomorrow night again so we've finally got our tickets this time. should eb a good laugh anyway.

Best of all, family convergance on Saturday!

Things I have learnt in the last week

For some reason the Guradian and the BBC Magazine has been a wealth of useless and misleading facts and information this week. My favourites have been:
  1. The tear duct is the warmest part of the human body (more so then the core temprature??)
  2. Botanists can't tell the differnce between broccoli and caluiflower- (on a micro scale obviously)
  3. There are 40 more Starbucks in London then there in Manhatten (London's an awful lot bigger than Manhatten, not they doen't say New York)

Obviously you can't believe everything you read in the newspapers! If anyone has any information on these wonderful facts do e-mail in (

In other news I've had another full week in uni - that's nice, I've been paid (sort of) and I even had a chance to go girly shoe shopping. Quiet night in with home made lasagnia tonight I think, I might even make some kind of lovely pudding, on the basis I had a really nasty blueberry muffin from Upper Crust this morning (it was just tasted overly of fake lemon juice - and not of blueberrys)

Pete has the weekend off so we have a indlugent weekend planned of not doing much, perhaps a museum, maybe some vintage shopping- perhaps, even brunch!

Other exciting news - the veg bag produced sprouts this week :)

I had a really great night at Barfly last night - didn't drink loads, came home at a sensible time, got to sit in the funky theater bit (There are all things I approve of in my old age)

But saw / heard some really good music:

Ambrose Thompkins - kind of a farm boy rock thing - Really cool if you can catch them

Sillouette - Updated 60's pop

Holly Golightly (she off White Stripes album) - Amazing, This fantastic blusey rock

Pete's a happy bunny too - well he's got a cold but He had a really great time too, first time We've randomly gone to see live music in ages.

We've been quite busy of late, Pete's demanding a night in. Newcasltle last weekend, Cinema on Tuesday (the beautiful Bearcub), Lunch in Chester and FACT's Film Quiz on Wednesday. I've been filling in some hours at work so the flat is it more of a tip then it usually is at this point in the week - I really don't remember the last time I actually cooked anything. Oh well, tonights menu reads: Warm italian butter bean and root vegetable soup with dumplings and baked sweet potatoes - and then off to see the fireworks!
