Ho Ho Ho Ho! well what can I say? I went out for drinks on friday and had a few too many. I stayed at my Sister's (half sister actually) and was so drunk I walked into her mum's bedroom twice thinking it was the toilet! Oh well, at least I didn't piss on her bed while she slept.... mental note: drink less. Couldn't face going out last night cos my head felt like a grapefruit in a vice, so I stayed in and watched rubbish TV. I'm not getting very far in planning my travels. I still can't decide how much is realistic to see in a year. Oh well, I'm sure I'll make a decision when there's only a couple of days left...

Well, my baby should be here soon. No, I'm not pregnant, I was referring to my girlfriend, who is coming to stay in exactly one weeks time. :) Woo Hoo! Anyway, I'm finding it difficult to think of anything interesting to write, cos nothing has really happened, so I'll stop now. Don't worry, my blog will get back on form soon enough. Once I touch down in india it should get a bit more interesting....

IT'S SNOWING!!!!! :)
Yes, it's true, outside is a McFlurry of white snowflakes (no crushed oreos tho) and it's beginning to settle, so by this time tomorrow ppl could be sledging and building snowmen and having snowball fights while I sit inside by the fire and curse my bastard cold and pretend I never really like snow anyway...... God I'm sick of this cold!! I still cant hear with my right ear, and my nose still feels like I've been snorting chilli powder... :( Anyway, I tried to leave the house on Tuesday... BIG mistake. Tues was like the coldest day of the last 2 years or something. By the time i'd reached town after waiting 15 mins outside for the bus, I was already frozen to the bone. After 2 hours of walking round town looking for warmer clothes to wear, i decided to get home asap, and by the time I got back, my cold has amplified itself into a terminal illness. Wrapped in blankets, I tried to thaw my frozen body, but I still dont feel quite right... I want to wander round my house in my boxer shorts! I want to nip down the shops in my shorts and T-shirt! I want to go and eat at the coffee shop on the corner and feel the warm evening air! Oh well, snow is infinitely cooler than rain (no pun intended) so i guess I can't complain (no rhyme intended). Right, I'd better go eat some brekkie.... :)

hi kids,

well, today has been a slight improvement. Firstly, it has been abolutely beautiful weather. Completely clear blue sky and blazing sunshine! I went for a walk to the shop to soak up some rays, and if you ignore the fact that it's about -2 degrees with a wind chill factor of about -15 degrees, then it's quite pleasant really. :) It really does look beautiful when the suns out. The same trees that yesterday looked like something out of a scary disney cartoon, today looked like a wonderous example of nature... Anyway, today I made Leek and Potato soup. That's it. That's all I did today! The rest of the day was spent reading my e-mails, which due to this bastard pc took about 3 hours...

Btw, I keep forgetting to say a big THANKYOU to the people who came to see me off at the airport! Thanks so much Adrian for the lift, and thanks to all of you for coming! I'm so sorry I didn't turn around after I went thru the gate! I'm not used to being seen off at airports... Anyway, the main reason is cos I cant help stressing about stuff like catching planes... after i went thru, i went and bought some throat sweets, then went and bought some booze, then went to my Gate, only to realise that somewhere along the way |i had lost my boarding card!!!! So, already being late, I had to run back and retrace my steps. Luckily the woman who had served me in the Duty Free had already found it, and was holding it out to me when I arrived out of breath at the shop. She held it out with this "you STUPID boy!" look on her face, but I was too pleased to find my pass to bother spitting on her, so I just gave a quick slap instead. not really. I just said thanks and ran back just in time to get on my plane...... which took off an hour later after they had fixed a 'few minor elecrical problems'.... and did they really need to tell us that?? couldn't they just say 'sorry for the delay, the runway has been congested'.... i mean, a few minor electrical problems just sounds so, well, ominous... It sounds like some famous last words:

'dont worry folks, it's just a few minor elecrical problems', the pilot said, seconds before the control panel exploded and engulfed him in flames.......

anyway, I'm gonna go and....ummm.....errrrr...... watch tv i guess......

Somebody shoot me.

It's 4pm and the sun has set. Not that it was ever up in the first place mind you, but I'm assuming it was up, as the uniform grey of the sky was emitting enough light for me to see. Now however, it is slowly darkening to a night time shade of black. I tried to go outside for a moment earlier, and then realised that it was suicide and ran back in before my feet went numb and I fell over. It is freezing. I mean FCUKING FREEZING! I'd forgotten how crap england looks in the winter when it's not sunny and there's no snow. The trees look like bony old men with wiry fingers who snatch babies from prams in horror movies. Or maybe that's just the jet lag. Either way, there's no denying that it looks shite. It's no surprise that every holiday brochure of the UK is packed full of shots of spring, summer, autumn, and snow! You never see a pic of a drab grey sky, loads of leafless gnarly trees and a few frozen birds shivering on a telegraph pole, do you? anyway, if your interested, i had a safe flight home, apart from the first landing, when the Boeing 747 nearly jack-knifed on the runway. It was only a split second, like when you do a jump on your bmx and land at a bit of an angle, and nearly lose your balance and come of sideways, but pull it back at the last minute, only this time instead of having a fleeting vision of grazed knees and bent spokes, I had a fleeting vision of blazed trees and burnt folks. anyway, it was ok, apart from being the worst bastard flight of my entire life. I had a cold when i got on the plane in singapore, and I had strong desire to kill myself when i got off in birmingham. and lets not forget the 3 hour wait to transfer in Frankfurt... anyway, this computer sux, some im gonna go. grrrrr. ;)

Hello all,

have any of you guys been sending me e-mails with attatchments to my account? I've had 3 mails from "loyboon", "vietmatch" and "picasso101", and none of them have any message identifying the sender, they just have an attatchment, so of course I just delete them all! If you wanna send me stuff, be sure to let me know who you are! :) Anyway, I think I have finally solved the god damn archiving problem!! :) It seems to be behaving relatively normally now, except I've told it to only display the last 14 days posts and it's not listening to me. Anyway, enough boring stuff. So, what have I been up to? Well, on Saturday I went to a party at Sentosa called "3D". I thought it would be similar to Zoukout, and it kind of was, except for the fact that me and my few friends were the only straight ppl there! You could literally count the number of girls present on 1 hand! It was 99.9 percent gay men, and they were taking full advantage of the fact. The outfit of choice was a pair of speedos and some body paint, or a thin strip of material just big enough to almost cover your butt.

It was really quite bizzare but also quite fascinating. I felt like I'd gatecrashed their party! I've never felt so out of place being straight! The few girls that were there, were standing around looking dejected, obviously not used to the severe lack of attention they were recieving! One thing that struck me was how unbelievably easy gay ppl have it. I mean, when a straight guy goes to a club, first of all there's probably gonna be more men than women in the club, so straight away his chances are more than halved, then take into account that what few women there are, are going to be seriously in demand, and therefore far more choosy. Then take this party we went to and look at it from a gay guy's perspective.... Every single person at that party was a potential shag! I think you can work out the math. :0 Anyway guys, I rekon the closest we'll ever get to this kind of situation is by holding a "Ladies night: girls drink for free!" night somewhere, and then instructing the bouncers not to let in any guys..... It could work..... ;)

Well, my last day is fast approaching. I'm trying to see all my friends during these last few days, it all feels very wierd. Anyway, enough already. catch ya laters...
