Log in

Heard you're new in town
Want someone to show you 'round
Well no-one knows this place just quite like me
Well I don't hang with the crowd
Where I go we're dressing down
I'll take you where the music plays for free

So don't rely on people you meet
'Cause no-one is safe in these streets

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a good time
I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a real good time

So what so you think so far
Is it all you're hoping for
Does it live up to your every dream
Or do we disappoint
Well you made the choice
When you wake up can you hear the scream

So don't rely on people you meet
'Cause no-one is safe in these streets

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a good time
I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a real good time

'Cause I know how it feels to be alone
When strangers only make you feel the cold
You never ever felt so far from home
You never felt so far from home

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a good time
I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a real good time

I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a good time
I'm gonna take you out tonight
I'm gonna make you feel alright
I don't have a lot of money
But we'll be fine
No I don't have a penny
But I'll show you a real good time

This is just fantastic.

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions & discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, & our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds & live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.” — Charles Bukowski

Snow day

It's my first day off from work since I started this job in June. I'm not ill, but all of London's transport system has ground to a halt because of the snow!

Don't give up your day job.

"It might also be useful to write your thoughts and feelings down in a journal. According to studies conducted by American psychologist James W. Pennebaker, journaling - also known as "expressive writing" - for at least 15 minutes a day, about your innermost thoughts and feelings, can help release "blocked emotions" and make you feel "significantly better, physically and mentally". In fact, retelling a problem or experience in words, rather than simply thinking about it in your head, can help "bring about a change in perspective."

To make the most of your expressive writing session, Pennebaker suggests asking yourself three questions:

1. What happened?
2. How did I feel about that?
3. Why did I feel that way?

When writing down the answers, don't worry about grammar, spelling complete sentences or repetition. As Pennebaker says, "What counts is that you delve into your deepest feelings".


Hadouken! is such a guilty pleasure at the moment.

We're all going mad.

The Smiths on a bus with a load of kids on a day trip out. Watch as Morrissey laughs at a plant in the botanical gardens!

There are some really strange Smiths videos out there.
Not entirely sure why Simian Mobile Disco are ripping off Chris Cunningham & Aphex Twin:

Pass it on.

Whilst The History Boys was good, it wasn't what I expected. That's not necessarily a bad thing though.

Hang Me Up To Dry

I have two 'interviews', though one is tomorrow and I have to do a task with some small children and a mystery task, which is definitely a bit daunting, don't know what to make of that. The other one is Tuesday, it could be a pain to get to, but it's an interview & I'm more than prepared to travel. I'm definitely having a moment of 'you-wait-ages-for-a-bus-and-then-two-come-along-at-once'.

Now means volunteering at an after-school club until the holidays, then I get paid for it. The children are very cute and very sweet. The staff are okay, but nothing of the Fun Language instant togetherness. I guess it's different situations now.

This is all very tiring.

Merry Christmas from Bangkok!

Just in case I don't get time to do this in the near future:

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope 2007 brings people lots of nice surprises.
Bangkok makes me realise I need to live in a big city. I need to be in the centre of things & have lots to make me constantly surprised and amazed.
