sleep my darling, sleep!

Monday, July 3rd, 2000

Well, what did i do since i last spoke to y’alls.

Cycled over to cheryls house to get some sleep, i can’t get it here cause my family are SO loud in the mornings, its also a kinda force of habit :D
Do got there and went to sleep until 12:30 ish, then watched some tv, had a bath and then more tv overlunch. Then guess what… sleep :)
Infact, i was totally asleep on the frontroom floor for ages, but cheryl moved me onto the sofa which was where i stayed until 7! when i had to leave.

Final of the EUro2000 today (which incidently kicked off at 7) however i still had ‘Romper Stomper’ to watch which was due back today so watched that instead.

Man its a brutal film, its about these australian racist skinheads and how they beat up the chinese and then revenge and stuff. Pretty horrible, i was hiding under the bed :lol: but it was actually quite good, makes you think though,,,

anyways, it was good cause it ended before the football did, so i went downstairs to watch the end of the match, 1-0 to italy, hmmm, good result (if it stayed).

So it goes on and on, with no one looking particually good, and it gets to 90 mins, everyone is happy, a result for Italy!

Then 4 minutes injury time are added on… so people all sit down, but soon its into the 93rd minute, so they all get up again… then France score!! Amazing! with like on 20 seconds left!!!! :D
The italians were so deflated :) but it had to go into golden goal extra time…. and guess who scored next…

FRANCE :D hahahahahahaha, what a lose to the italians, the poor poor things :) but very amusing :) but one of the best matches (well just for the outcome of euro 2000 :) the sad looks on the fans faces were well worth it :D)

So after this hilarious outcome, tom and i went back down blockbusters to take the films back. a nice little walk it was and we were having a nice chat, despite the fact there were loads of mad french ppl running about :D
all in all, an, hmmm, INTERESTING (if rather short) day! woop!

just returned from ‘frantic’ boy am i tired :)

Well, funnily enough, not really, you would think so seeing as i haven;t slept for nearly 24 hours now.

So, how did it go, well i left at 11:00 last nite to head up to camden palace to go to ‘frantic’ a seriously hard house night. Got up there by 11:45 and went to Sainsburys to get some Smints, then quick stop at the glowstick bloke before skipping the whole queue and getting in.

So then, how was it. Well, it was a lot different to all the other nites i have been too, extremely hard house, which was ok, but when you get tired it gets annoying, which i did.

So i was sitting there for quite a while wishing i hadn’t come, but when i started to wake up i felt so much better and liked being there :)
Funny thing happened whilst i was almost sleepin’, a girl come up to me and started rubbing me on the back of the head saying ‘are you alrite’ and kept looking at me :D I kept saying, yeah i am just tired, but she kept rubbing my head… everyone thought i had pulled (partly including me actually) but i was way too tired to really think about that.

The evening then, well £12 to get in £4 for glowsticks and £4 travel (oh and £1 for the smints) out of 10, hmmm, 7 (9 when i was awake).

Afterwards (it finished at 6) we all walked down to Euston station to get some coffee, cause the trains don’t start until about 7:20, so we sat on the floor just chatting.

Come home just after that and here i am!! ALthough, i will now leave, cause i wave of tiredness has just hit me :) So long party people! :D :eek:

i am amazed!! :D

I got up at 9:40 today! Totally amazing, my earliest ever!

Anyway, i didn’t actually get out of bed though, nope, i watched Pokemon on TV :) and then some other cartoons, hehehehe….

Well, I’m up and about now, so I shall now go out… watching them DVD’s later on today… woop woop!

broke as usual

Saturday, July 1st, 2000

well, why didn’t i write yesterday, i’ll tell you why! i was still pissed off about holland going out of the euro 2000. i mean, and if that wasn’t enough, i had bet all my winnings on it.

So lets recap, each bet i won throughout euro2000 was put in the betting account, which accumulated £31. i put £10 back into my bank, and put the final £21 on holland (as well as the £5 i already had on them) and they lose, so i lost everything :( :angry:

Apart from that, i think yesterday was ok :D
Today was a bit different, working a bit more on olivers machine to make sure everything is absolutely perfik :) and investigating into the new email software i shall install.

I need to setup as many things as possible from now until i leave so they have no choice but to keep me on :) :D
Stay really late at college (about 7:30) just sitting in the network office chatting with zak about anything really, raphael has changed his mind and will be taking my job next year (in a way thats good, means i don’t have to do it :D)

Went home and rented out some dvd’s from blockbuster, ‘Human Traffic’ and ‘Romper Stomper’ both which look good, and i will try and actually see before i have to take them back :)
What else, hmmmmmmm, ate and got shit bored on the computer, i wish i had something else to do, anyway, i think i will get that haircut tomorrow :)
nite all, films await me… xxx
