kiss the world

If you are reading my blog let me know, I want to talk to you. YES! YOU!

Yesterday we went to London on a jaunt of sorts, mostly just meandered quite aimlessly. On my travels, I discovered an AMAZING SHOP, Desigual. It looks insane when you walk in because it is sooo multicoloured, its like something exploded, but all the clothes are beautifully made and I want ALL of them.

Are you smarter than John Noe?

I'm listening to Pottercast live for the first's awesome. Soooo awesome. Ok now you all know I'm a geek.


"Sometimes I see an expression on Clare's face that is like a closed door. She has gone inside the room of her mind and is sitting there knitting or something."

One short sleep past, we wake eternally, And Death shall be sitting in the kitchen in his underwear at three in the morning, doing last week's crossword puzzle-"

I have just finished reading "The Time Traveler's Wife", a sad and extraordinary book.
(Also after about 2 years my keyboard has finally been replaced! And now I have the joys of the enter button (and others) back!)

I can never think of something cool enough to write here

Me and Patrick are obsessed with Kate Beaton. She is hilarious and way too cool. Its really sunny again today and the sequins on my jumper make sparkly patterns when I move. If you're bored you should check out my friend Kate's radio station and listen to her Arts Attack show, especially because Patrick is being interviewed on it this week! Only joking, check it out. Going to PACK NOW (boring).

It's a fiasco!

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! I'm feeling a little hyper but tired! Tonight I got to eat pretty sparkley cupcakes for charity and watch a friend of mines very good band, The Als and the Pussycats, at Cabaret Voltaire. Nice sunday laid back fun. I have had a nice week altogether in fact, very busy but nice. A successful Art Society exhibition, a sunny, victorious football match, laughter at The Improverts, learning about Sororities, popcorn at work, making a bonfire and now I can smell my fruit cake cooking in the oven....mmm lemony. I get to go home tomorrow so I am glad.

Sadly I should start doing some work soon seeing as THE FINAL TERM is soon dawning. I think I will read some papers etc this holiday. I am excited because Imogen Heap is inviting people to send her artwork samples so that you can design her new, what. She is amazing. So I'm going to spend some time attempting that. ALSO. I JUST FOUND SOMETHING TRUELY AWESOME. Owning this would totally make my love for watermelon things fulfilled. That picture is courtesy of an artistic duo called Kozyndan, who create amazingly detailed surreal works of art, beautiful photos and are just generally extremely cool people. They are fabulous and I'd love to meet them, they are inspiring. I'm happy that once they came to Edinburgh and that I own their bunny tshirt.Mmm I just took my marzipan-lemon-fruitcake out of the oven and it looks so dense and warm and wooonderfuuul. I guess I should go, I have been blogging throughout the course of a film and Dirty Sexy Money. I hope it's sunny tomorrow for my train journey! Au revoir!

I have been trying to draw this evening and I have been failing. I think the key is to keep doing it and not expect each thing to be good straight away. I dislike this reality intensely. Anyway, if I draw anything worthwhile I'll let you know. Only two more days of labs until holidays, so therefore only two more days of screwing up experiments and being generally incompetent. yesss. Goodnight chickens, sleep well and make sure you follow my blog. Very good. x

Oh goodness me! I have completed the puzzle. My quest is over! Aided by my esteemed friend Lizzy, the elusive 50p has been uncovered. Thank you Lizzy. I feel like something magical has happened now that I have assembled all the pieces, like in the Ocarina of Time. I find all the bits of my triforce (or coins whatever) and then....BA BA BA BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! I feel I deserve a dramatic sound effect and a baddie to fight. Where is Ganondorf!? x

I'm having a science overload

So science is SUPPOSED to make you feel stupid. In fact you're MEANT to be stupid. That makes me feel better.

Very food based

Ohh, I just got a text from my Mum saying she was having dinner alone. Thinking about people eating alone sometimes makes me feel really sad. I am not sure why but it makes me feel weird inside. Silly really as loads of people eat alone all the time. Speaking of eating food, today started rather spectacularly as Matt made us all a massive fried breakfast this morning. Hash browns are a luxury reserved for school trips and Matt-breakfasts only. As a result I felt extremely full ALL day. To add to this overindulgence I made a chocolate and pumpkin bread pudding this evening using some leftover pumpkin from Halloween (NB: we have stored this pumpkin like squirrels/bears/beavers whatever for about 4 months, we are truely resourceful are we not?).

Anyway I have a few nice bits and pieces to post. Firstly I squealed with delight when I found that Tom Gauld has a Flickr with all of his illustrations from the Guardian. Happiness. Secondly I wept (not really but close) because Kid Koala arranges these really awesome evenings of quiet time music to be creative to. I'm weeping because it is in Montreal which is extremely far away. Quiet people are invited. No dancing. Actually, this sounds like the kind of thing I'd love to organise. Hmm. Thirdly Olivier Tallec has some lovely illustrations (which have a slight Quentin Blakey kinda feel to them). J'adore parce que my french has disappeared on me. Sur le weekend j'ai vu le film en francais appele "Hors de Prix" ou "Priceless" en anglais, starring the beautiful Audrey Tautou who was being particularly amusing avec her co-star Gad Elmaleh. Amuuuuuuusing. Amuse bouches. I also saw "He's just not that into you" yesterday with an old friend which was amazing fun and I laughed and cried simultaneously. This has taken me ages to write, my hot water bottle is lukewarm and my toes are cold. Not cool. I must go and shower I think. L x

New Slang when you notice the stripes

Above me, someone is playing the The Shins, it is sunny and it is Sunday, these things make me happy. See you later I'm going for a walk. x

ETA: I went out and it hailed. WHAT. This is the most temperamental city and I do NOT understand. Very upsetting.
