watching the clock.

have taken my time to write this next entry.
this is a piece of wheat in ulverston when me + paul snook into the 'fisherman only' bit near the priory.
spending most of my time doing html. i say i am, i mean i should be. i've done a fair bit though. in terms of university work that is all that is left for me to do. and then i am rid of multimedia technology and can look forward to the prospect of starting the excellent film course in september.
i have a few gigs booked for the next couple of months. they are as follows - may 11 bbc radio leeds, may 20 verve leeds, may 29th source arts cafe carlisle, june 11 cafe lento leeds, june 18 lantern house ulverston. excited? good. took a few photos at easter. these are snails shells. not sure if there was anybody home, i don't think so though. these were on the walk home from the beach/priory.
this guy was between the lantern house and lightburn park:
this is how my website is looking so far, this is the 'other' page which is a page telling an interested viewer what else we as a company like!

it doesn't function yet - just for looking at. not sure how to get it working yet. i've been eating lots of toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds. oh! i dropped my favourite glass jar the other day - not like an idiot onto the floor, just onto the counter (which isn't even that far down from me at all so i don't know how it smashed. must have caught the corner.) all my seeds went onto the floor and the washing machine (and into my pocket!) but unfortunately, there was lots of tiny glass bits mixed in. So, not liking to throw anything away and wanting to keep my seeds for eating, i stood for an hour carefully scanning groups of seds for glass. it's a good job i checked more than once because there was bits i'd missed first time around. devoted to my seeds.
cafe lento is a lovely little cafe in headingley, leeds. it is run by a man called richard and his daughter. they play a lot of jazz music (and my cd now i've given them it - giving me the gigi opportunity on june 11) and they sell fairtrade teas and coffee. i had a soya latte! it was very nice. they have board games too and they used to have lots of comics and books on the bench at the wall but they aren't there at the moment.
going to a few gigs in may, one is in london! i will be staying with my lovely friend emily which i am excited about because i haven't seen her in a while. the other two are in leeds. one is cocorosie - a beautiful duo of sisters from the states but started making their music in paris, i think that's how the story goes. enough about me, how are you?

tissues and honey

I'm unfortunate to say I have a cold. Gone through a lot of tissues, a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit juice, and probably double my daily sugar allowance from honey. But it's good for you isn't it.? Yes.
Bought a pomegranite today and wasn't I happy! I've not had one in a long time. It was delightful I took some nice photos. Here is one -
just a little seedling. There's two nice ones on my flickr -
I've spent my day, besides strolling to the local grocery and health stores in Headingley, working on my website design. I started the first half of my day faithless, but now I'm a bit more positive. I like how it looks at the moment so that is alright.
I bought some almonds today and boiled them in honey - which, by the way, cancels out the benefits one normally would get from honey. So no point doing that again. The honey stuck to my crepe plate once it cooled too.
I made a nice casserole for my lunch and my dinner, the photograph that I took doesn't do the casserole great justice so is there any point adding it?

there was brown rice, lentils,carrot, cabbage, vegetable stock, pepper, onion, garlic, sweet potato and gravy granukes in this.
When I returned from my stroll to get groceries, I took my savoy cabbage out of the carrier bag and hen there were litle tiny white dots flying around. Honestly very tiny and, sad to say, they are made of dust or something. 'Sad to say' because i squished one... Look at this guy-
he looks alive here doesn't he. poor thing.
I bought some new ground coffee the other day from sainsburys. It is delightfil, it is half caff.
I've posted my cd away to Manchester music for a review or something.
I was to be playing in Leeds on saturday on Briggate for the Leeds University Union society 'RAG' but I am not very well therefore it will not be very good for me so I am not now.
Aparently, they are bringing out a limited edition of marmite mext week - extra strong. (Unilever, not Leeds University Union Society 'RAG'.)
If only Unilever didn't test on animals I might be inclined to purchase it.
Watched Tim Burton and Johnny Depp on Jonathan Ross. That was good wasn't it, I like them two. I watched that cheesy movie 'couples retreat' the other night. I had not much else to do and am always open to watching a movie. It was nearly as bad as the trailers look. But fairly funny at parts- I like Vince Vaughn.
I made a poster for the gig at Hyde Park Social Club on March 10th, I have a little stamp that has my name and myspace address on so I made a row of 8 stamp sized bits of paper for people to rip off so they can listen to my music to see if they want to come. And well I was on my way to class after lunch when I noticed 4 had gone. By the end of they day all of them had. So that's good isn't it.

Not wrote in a while have i. Well I must have not been doing much. been making soup and fried rices and nearly burning the kitchen on fire (always put too much water in the pan when you make rice)
At the moment i am making gift tags and gift books and cds for a charity night on march 10th where i will be playing too - that's what the cds are = me.

took a few pictures of my makings which you will be able to see. other photos are the tasty fried rice i made the other day, can't remember much of what i used - rice, mixed vegetables, turmeric, garlic, tomato puree. dave got a 18 inch pizza the other day. paul made one. also making new cd covers for the gig - to fit with the recycled brown paper/cardboard theme.

Practical pranks are hilarious.last night, me and my house mates (note-all but one) were bored. upon thinking what to do to entertain ourselves we came to discussing practical jokes and what we could do to liams room for when he gets back the next day. we threw a few ideas outt here but noone made a move to get started so i suggested we go in his room to see what we come up with instantly, and i said 'lets turn his posters upside down' so we started turning his posters upside down, this led to turning things on his shelves upside down-pen pot, money box, hairspray, card. this led to turning his clothes in his wardrobe inside out. we liked this one and so thought what could we do to the clothes in his drawer, so we switched his drawers around, thinking he would be quite neat about what goes in which drawer. this wasn't enough that we turned the chester drawers upside down. so when he does open a drawer, everything falls out. we should have left it there to be a bit subtle. but we didn't. we took the fuses out of his plugs, and some knobs and screws here and there from his guitar amp. we filled his pillow cases and bed sheet with plastic bags so it rustles with the slightest touch (very funny) and last but not least, we took his door off its hinges. we replaced it with a layer of cling film and a layer of bin bags. he is back at five today. i won't be in. here are some pictures of the process.

folded pizza

we didn't go to the lebanese restaurant due to the price. i will let you find out how much it is yourself. no i will report- around fifteen rof anything 'decent' said a carnivore. about £12 for the vegetarian field. there's no point paying that much is there, so we decided to head down to the shop to get some bits and make calzones for dinner.
mine was awesome. it had peppers, onions, peas, mushroom, gherkin and lots of tomato puree inside. this is what they looked like -
the other one we made had mushroom, cheese, pepperoni and tomato puree in it.
