hello to the borkas!

Thursday, May 24th, 2001

well, i am at the moment quite drunk so the spelling may be a little off, but i am trying my best ok!

taken rest of week off to spend it with gowry :) and as had gone to bed so late, slept until like 1:30, but i was reading fhm in the bathroom until 3 or summit, so like a lazy start to the day.

then whilst gowry was washing i went into the basement and started on my mix machine for about an hour…… OH MY GOD!!! it was the best i had ever fucking mixed, it was fucking ace on top fuck it ruled!

yeah, it started of with general trance and stuff, but then got onto the hard house and was banging and i ruled and its all cause of the headphones (and cause i am just great)

woo hoo! then we went to argos to get a record holder and the common and stuff but we had to leave to get borka (yeah i know i am writing shit but i am drunk ok :)) and then she came round and……

AHHHHHH! slow down!!!!!!

OK, borka came around but i wanted to build my record holder (which was £34.99 from argos) so i set to work, unfortuantely though it didn’t fit and so i need to take it back tomorrow, damn!

borks needed to work on her project, so we went upstairs and started working through c++ (which i had not learnt before), but we soon got sidetrakced and started taking loads of photos :D 8) (which will soon be uploaded)

damn, well, i dont think i should write anymore, but i will say i’ve been hacing a great nite with gow and its a shame it all has to end (cause parents coming back and all) and i will miss it.

oh, new accounts for inetfx….

woo hoooooo! xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

sitting waiting for gow….

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2001

i know, i know, i ain’t posted for a while (fri i think, but the date showed as sat) so its a whole weekend to report on, hmmmm, will be quite difficult as my mind is fucked :eek:
Ok, well, as you know, Gowry is staying over, which means its kinda hard to get out of bed in the mornings…. afternoons…. etc etc :openmouth: but on sat we did eventually and go down cj to do relationship type things (not that! :P) and eat.

Hmmm, got home i think cause we had to go out meet everyone in wandsworth, but the fecking hot water would not come on, meaning it was getting later and later. like, had a little, erm, ‘discussion’ causing gow to go for a walk :rolleyes: and by the time she had got back, although the water was on, it was too late. so we just watched tv and then went to bed.

Sunday had to get up for gowry to go look at cars with her mum, but she didn’t want to so stayed asleep, going to go out, but erm, fell into the staying in bed trap again.

When finally did get up, cheryl rang (or did i ring her?) to report on a shooting that had happened in wandsworth and that they had shut the roads! :eek: ah, nah, it was via msn, i rang later so we couldnt have gone anyway (neither would gowry have got home to do the car thing).

Had scrambled eggs on pasta for lunch, which i prepared whilst gow decided to practise her dj’ing :D which was obviously crap :) however, put it rite after lunch by spinning some pretty cool mixes even though it was r’n'b/garage ish :)
Speaking of which, the mixing is getting pretty good now, in fact sometimes its just blinding!

i am dj apex, bow to me :) :cool:
10 pieces of chicked from kfc for dinner, mmmmm, some of it is still in the fridge :D and then listened to blackadder for us to doze off :)
This morning, work and gows course, same story, got up at 3/4 ish :rolleyes: she went home to get stuff, and i have been writting my billing system, its okish now, works just a bit bland :)
Oh, gotta go get tom at 7ish on firday for some important exam, hmmm, perhaps i need to do a workaround for that! hahahahaha :rolleyes:
gow should be here in an hour, so i better be off to get ready, so long……

what a wicked day!

today has been cool, got loads done and, well i’ll tell you later on.

Had to get up to go airport to take family away to greece (i think :D) but it was ok, cause they wanted me up at 9, and i had gone to bed early cause i cant talk to gow anymore cause she ain’t paid her bill.

So like, that was pretty uneventful cause it was just a straight drive there, but i did notice that the wheels on the car are fucked as they were shaking like crazy, hopefully though the new alloys will solve that.

Got back around 12:45 and went to pick up cheryl (who was comig round to hear me christen my new headphones) she was asleep, so tickled her until she got out of bed :)
Came round and OH MY GOD, the headphones (sony mdr-v700j) are the ABSOLUTE BOMB! they are so clear and the mixing just went SO WELL! itr made me so glad i started it, as each mix was just flowing and it was in time and I ROCKED!

Sorted out some new photos for this site after b4 taking cheryl back home and going to the post office to collect a parcel for mum (shame she just missed it huh).

gowry who was supposed to have left at around 6, still had not arrived by like many hours later, so i just sat on the sofa watching the tv.

It turns out she hadn’t been able to go out for the day at all as shima’s car had broken down and they just stood by it all day :)
oh! reminds me, MTV have this kewl features called SMS vote or summat, they put two videos head to head and you have to sms your votes. then you can send messages also and they appear on the screen, its cool!

anyways, gowry arrived eventually with my replacement record (the 6th one!) but it still had the same damn problem :( cant be arsed to go into it. so like, now shes here and in bed cause shes little and doesn’t have much energy :)
hehehehehe… anyway, shower awaits, anything i forgot i;ll report tomorrow :) LAAAATTTEEEERRRZZZZZ!

eventful day… not! :P

Thursday, May 17th, 2001

why do i even bother going to work? they never give me anything to do so all i do is sit around doing absolutely nothing :(

Anyway, on the plus side, ordered a new 128meg memory stick for the camera (yes, that is over 400 photos on one stick!) so hopefully the gallery will become massive with the amounts coming on and ordered my new sony phones, which will make cueing up a lot easier :)
Went to wimbledon at about 4ish and basically, well, like, i was just walking out the centre court, when i realised i was in between two massive groups (we’re talking 100-150 people here), just carry on through (i ain’t gonna stop!) when suddenly there is this huge roar and they are running at each other! throwing each other into the road and kicking and punching and stuff! wow! police and stuff, the lot :)
Made me think, i’m gonna go with my ambition to take up taekwondo or summit as they were vicious!

Nan’s birthday :D so had to go round for tea, but left part way through to pick up my new phone, the panasonic coloured thing, cool! now i can send borka musical texts :)

Oh, and finished the coding for my friends, now i just need to put them on :) hahaha….

Might tidy up a bit cause gowry coming to stay, so i suppose it should be as clean as can be for her…. or maybe she should just do it…. :D

now i can get on with the posts

Ok, so it works and as far as i can tell it works with no problems, so i’m now free to GET ON WITH IT!

well, today, lazy day, went to mcd’s for lunch, got one of those new chicken tandori things as they ain’t got no tom or mayo on them! hurrah, and sat in the sun and ate it.

at work there was nothing to do, so i just ordered stuff off the net :) oh, and about a 10 line chat with bonnie ;) (ha! i mentioned you!)

pretty crap at work actually, anyway, went to see cheryl and marc after work, watched tv, ate kfc (again, no sauce!) and generally chilled out, before leaving to come home and finish working on the rest of this.

TIRED TIRED TIRED! i am whacked, but i bet i can’t sleep, grrrrrrrr…. anyway, before i write too much boring crap, i’m gonna go.

BYE :)
