I've been going through my files and re-reading stuff I wrote as a teen, and this summary for a film script I was going to write came up, featuring characters called Marla and Juan. I remember nothing about this and I'm totally boggled:

Start on earth. Bar scene etc, lots of atmosphere.
Get into space, she turns into a control freak and they have some really massive fights.
He meets other girl, a secretary or something.
Sleeps with her
Marla tortures him- “the cross and the switchblade”
He goes with other girl, she goes to revolution
Meet up again, he tortures her- pink flares
They fight side by side and fall in love again
He gets the alien thing living in him(?)
It gets removed and she has to take it to a safe location
Sucseeds but ends up in trouble.
He goes to save her and ends up killing evil person
They win the revolution.
Celebration of some kind/happy ending.

Soundtrack songs-
Trash city- Transvision Vamp, the beginning
Song to the stars- Transvision Vamp
Dance the night away- Mavericks, him with other girl
Party Girls- Mink De Ville, background to dialogue
Sky- Sonique, sex scene after the fall in love again
Bat out of Hell – after bar scene, in the yard

I don't think the world lost out though me not writing this somehow! Anyone else want to share some of their teenage writing?

Oh and I didn't know at the time what the Sonique song was actually about...

You will marry Nikki Sixx.

After a wild honeymoon, you will settle down in Derby in your fabulous Apartment.

You will have 1 kid(s) together.The family will zoom around in a Blue Skoda.

You will spend your days as a Architect, and live happily ever after.

Proper update tomorrow with photos and shit, but a good time was had by all, apart from me while trying to handle the tube on an Off Day!

Night night!

OMG Nerves

Off to Surrey in an hour or so! I have a busy week with two job interviews which is awesome, but I had a meltdown about not having done the washing yet. I have plenty of sodding time to get my clothes ready, and I've done a massive cleanup, I still started to feel so messy and gross like I live in a junkie squat or something! Then the dress I was going to wear today didn't fit like I'd have liked and I ended up having a massive crying jag on the phone to my mum, all about things I should be excited about ffs. It's partly that Paul has gout and a corn which needs to be removed and can hardly walk. He's in so much pain and has been signed off work for 10 days and is thinking about going to his parents for the week so he doesn't think about drinking or getting up and doing stuff. His mum is going to be mean to him. I had to put him together a package of books and food when I helped him home last night. He's so miserable and I might not see him for a week and I don't know where this leaves any of our normal activities or his work - it may have turned everything on its head!

Meanwhile, I wonder if anyone would like to see some old family photos? Ironically none of them are the side of the family I'm seeing, as my mum scanned and sent them. They're behind the cut.

I've been freaking out.

I don't know why I should be freaking out about a family gathering. But I was so nervous I'll say something stupid. Or get drunk (this is silly as I actually do have some self control). Or embarras my dad and brother. I was freaking that my tickets wouldn't arrive in time. I started to freak out about taking the fucking tube. This is pathetic but they get so full and I always bump into people on the escalators and it's not like I think they're all going to explode but there's been a shitload of 7/7 stuff lately. It's all just fuelling my nerves. I normally don't take them and just walk and take pictures and soak up some atmosphere, like I did when I went to Surrey for that wedding last year, but I need to get from Kings Cross to Waterloo to be on a certain train to be picked up. I feel a damn site better now I've been to Oxfam, got a ton of stuff done, come home and done a good clean up and thrown a ton of rubbish away and opened the window and lit a joss stick and drunk a load of water. I think I'm getting the hang of this.

Note that despite all this freaking out I've been Exited actually and I would hate to not go hence the ticket thing. But they are here. And I got the cheapest new pair of shoes ever, courtesy of Oxfam, metallic purple ones to match my pretty 1950s party dress. I'm pretty much all ready to go!

So to celebrate, I'm doing a videospam of my top five fave songs with London in them. In reverse order.

After the busiest week ever (which included a job interview and helping out at the Beer Festival as well as the normal stuff) I'm feeling a bit burned out and ill. Need to get better soon though as I'm going down to Surrey at the weekend for my grandma's 80th. This also means I get to see London. And see my dad for the first time in over a year and my grandma for the first time in over 10 years!

On an unrelated note, the fantards who think it's apropriate to slag off Nikki Sixx's girlfriend on his own frigging official facebook page can all fuck off.

I'm currenty doing the donkey work for more latkes while Paul is in the pub. I'm brightening up my Eastern European drudgery by listening to Motley Crue because I found a sexy pic of Nikki Sixx online a while back. He is The Sex! Whoever said you have the face you deserve at 50 (was it Coco Chanel?) never looked at Nikki. UNF!

On Saturday it was the Best Beer Festival Ever, Barrow Hill!

Pictures Galore )

On Sunday we didn't have much money left, so we got all Domestic!

Pictures or it didn't happen! )

I'm still sick (cold and cough now) but never mind. It can't last forever right?

Today at Oxfam two more long evenng dresses sold! Formal wear has been doing so well all year, I think it must be to do with the credit cruch or somethng, that if people are going to buy it they're coming to us instead of someone else I mean.

I've been designing some clothes today, nothing all that original or out there but they're the ones that were being worn in a scenario in my head that I needed to get out of my system so some use might come of them. Maybe.

Talking of dresses, my current cute boy crush Thomas Cohen has a picture on twitter of himself in a black velvet dress!

Experiment to see if the html crosses over

And very fiiine he looks too! Unf unf.

All new DW

First post on DW. I hope the new username and icons will do something for my Blogging Fatigue.

I was on the university radio last week, talking about selling vintage clothing for Oxfam. I was really really nervous, I was terrified I'd fluff it or even worse make a freudian slip on air (though most of mine probably don't sound freudian without the conext of what's in my head to be honest) but it was fine. Apparently my voice managed not to sound squarky which was a relief. People up here keep asking if I'm from Essex. I'm not but I kind of sound like that recorded at times. My parents were listening online. I'm going to get a recording of it and hopefully upload it, I want to hear myself anyway.

Then the weekend got a bit weird. Saturday was fine, but Sunday I felt ill and couldn't manage my lunch and had to have a few hours sleep. Then I went to meet Paul and lost my lunch (which I'd just re-nuked in the mike and finished) into a plastic bag. I'd hardly had any booze and I can stomach it believe me. Monday I was okay again but Tuesday I had the shakes all day and my heart was going too fast. We went out and I thought I'd feel okay after that but ended up worse, felt panicky as hell, didn't fnish my drink, was sick when I got home, felt awful all night, sweating like something horrible and feeling sick and shaking and not able to sleep. I have been Off Colour all day though am feeling better having had sugary lemonade and a cupcake. It's so not like me to be ill like this!
