Yeah, Zooey Deschanel gets on my nerves too. Oddly, her sister Emily does not bother me at all. Maybe it's the whole "I'm super special and cute so you have to love me thing" that Zooey tends to put across?

Thing is, she ain't even actually quirky. She just makes funny noises.

I DVR'd the Jimmy Kimmel Live episode, so I just fastforwarded through all the parts I didn't care about. I can only dimly remember a time when if I wanted to see a performance on a late night show I had to stay up and suffer through everything else. Ah, technology.

I tried to get my Mom (who lives in the US) to record it for me, but she forgot, so I'll look it up on Youtube.

Every once in a while my job is delightful. Normally I write a bunch of really rather incredibly boring website content for companies--blogs, stuff like that.

Every so often, though, my boss has me do a "character" piece for his personal blog. So this morning, over my morning cup of tea, I was writing as many expletives as possible into a piece about how Snapchat is stupid for turning down an offer for $3 billion from Facebook. That was literally my assignment. "Put as many cuss words into this as you can possibly manage to get in there."

Glorious antidote to the ridiculous drive in.

I'm on what feels like the world's longest bus journey to get dropped off at one end of Nottingham so I can walk to the other end to get to the venue to see Oxygen Thief and Jonah. Why are most of the small, independent venues in Notts out of town? It's really annoying.

Looks like it was a good gig, you are so lucky to have venues like this close enough to attend!

Our closest 'decent' venue is an hours drive! in any direction We have The Roadmender at Northampton but the owners there are worse than fucking useless and think that 'indie' nights for the kids with a DJ is the way forward...oh and shite covers bands....used to be a great venue but been dicked a few times by the local council and think that everyone half decent worthy of a visit have given up on the place now.....

I need to win the goddamn lottery, sink a pile of it into a big fuck off warehouse and have parties and get some life back into Northamptonshire because it right royally stinks of piss and wind nowadays

I'm really lucky to live right up by the university, so I have Off With Their Heads and Future of the Left in close walking distance. Also Manning Bar, where Frank has played before (I think he's also been at the Annandale, where Future of the Left will be.)

But there's other venues on the godforsaken end of town, so I feel your pain sometimes.

Everything in my lab broke all at once. I have no work at the moment, but give it an hour and I'll be swamped. Sigh.

I have to write about 19,000 words by the time I go to bed on Saturday. Because I am an idiot. As further proof: I have managed to make from-scratch mac and cheese for Thanksgiving, catch up on all the silly internet games I play, walk the dog, and do some cleaning--and now I'm posting here because I just don't want to focus on my writing project.

Maybe another cup of coffee....

I discovered this morning, that apparently, fresh pineapple should not be used in chilled gelatin molds. It contains an enzyme that prevents it from firming up...... Sploosh. :shock:
shows? 90 so far...

It's Thanksgiving in the US, which is my annual 'wallow in homesickness' day.

Carry on.

Let me know for next year, I'll FedEx you a pumpkin pie. Or some delicious dressing. A turkey might be difficult though.
