OMG.. I know it got some less that good reviews but I was crying by 40 minutes in!! Loved it. Thought Rosario Dawson was so much better than I thought she could have been... some very touching moments. Even got Chris sniffing by the end... I thought he was going to leave half way through but he stuck it out and he was glad he did... yay.
So - I say YAY to the film... it had it's flaws but it was lovely to see it again :D


Before the RENT fest we ate pancakes... check it out:

What to do...
I got a wonderful package from my mum today with RENT the Movie inside... now, most of you who read this will probably be aware that I LOVE RENT and have been giddy for ages for it to come to the cinemas over here...
Now, here's my quandry.
Do I watch it? Or do I wait for the cinema?
I reaaaaaaaaaally want to watch it... ARGH....
I'd probably go and see it in the cinema anyway.
In fact even if it's shit I would just to show my allegance.
I'll probably watch it.
I've heard some of the songs and seen the clips online anyway.
I'll watch it then
Last night was productive... I made Ben a website! Look at me being a great friend, I didn't even make him pay me... but there was some mention of cake.
check it out:

something rather fun I just found...

Some pix from the sketch we filmed the other day...
You Are 50% Boyish and 50% Girlish

You are pretty evenly split down the middle - a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don't actively fight them.
You're just you. You don't try to be what people expect you to be.

Woohooo fun day with Dug and Ben in Manchester yesterday, meeting up with the lovely ginger lamb for luncheon.
Some pix.
Chris is the ginger one btw. Ben is the hippy. Dug is the skinny runt. I am purple.

We also spent most of the night then making films one which might actually be used in the Manchester Comedy Festival... we'll see.
To Mr/Ms Annonymous (a word I can never spell) I don't want to believe that you are being snidey, cos I think it's hard to pick up on subltleties online, but just re-read before you post if that isn't the case.
Anyway, workshops and the like today. Also one of Ben's friend's from Bradford is visiting tonight. Should be fun.

What a weird day.
GOt to bed at about 4am as I was playing 'Scruples' with Dug and Ben til around then. After Chris went to work about 7.30am, decided to stay in bed til about midday so I wouldn't fall asleep in my lesson! However I was awoken by a phone call from work asking me why I wasn't there!
Turns out I was supposed to teach in the morning, not the afternoon LIKE I'D ORIGINALLY BEEN TOLD! Anyhoo, I got there about 50 minutes late and someone else had started the students off on the work they had to do so it wasn't too bad. BUt it just meant taht I've been in a bit of a daze for the day. I wanted to go to Chesterfield with Chris, to watch him, but I'm too knakkered and have a load of marking and some CSz stuff to get done asap so I've stayed at home to do that. Have done about half of it so far. My eyes are closing though so I may give up for the night and have an early one.
Me and Dug are heading into Manchester tomorrow for a fun frolic. Turns out we both love stationary! ROCK! So we're going to chill in Paperchase for a while. YAY, I'm also off to the bank to close some of my stupid ammount of accounts once and for all!

AOL's space saving device falls flat!
Went on AOL to get my OTHER email and saw the TOP NEWS. Made me giggle a bit:

Top News More >
Wembley not ready to host Cup...
EU debates demand for bird flu...
Major crackdown on sex...

Do I need to make jokes?
Oh go on then... let the hack from within FREE....
First of all, a cup is not very big, and even though I can't say the word 'host' in a yorkshire accent, and was convinced the Wembley Stadium was being moved to Birmingham, I'm pretty sure Wembley can host at least one cup. They're probably used to mugs there anyway.
THe EU (pronounced Ew!) WANTS bird flu? I actually think that's cut off and is supposed to say "EU debates demand for bird fluffiness". Some of them are far too cuddly.
So, that major crackdown on sex. I agree.

REight - I'm off to work.

FINALLY finished watching all the first season of Arrested Development... all 20 million episodes! ;) I bought it just after Xmas and it's taken us about 4 weeks to get through it, lots of fun. If you've not seen it DO! I'm just about to hop onto and buy season two I think.
Workshop is all finished. I am very tired, mentally and physically. I really need a break... and it's coming, soon. Chris has decided to watch wrestling upstairs so I'm going to get on with my marking I think. Not much else to do really. I don't know what I used to do at home to keep myself busy cos I seem to have more free time here for some reason. Last night Ben and I hung out and made a groovy 3 part harmony vocal track with rock guitar of "Stop!" By Erasure! Sounds good, and was much fun. Tonight I'm a bit lost with what to do. Chris and I were going to go out and do something but we were both too knakkered and soon discovered there then wasn't much else to do at home it would seem. He made me a cracking soup and toastie tea though. He and Dug are in wrestling heaven, Ben is in London and I am marking... Saturday night...

Well, the shoot has finished. I am shattered. I went to bed at like half 9 last night, and not for any romantic reasons either, I was totally out of it. Went for a meal last night at Moon ('our' resturant) and then I came back and just went unconcious pretty much. I have a busy day today, I am working at the Uni then straight to the agency then back here to get Chris and we're going to be on the radio tonight at about 11pm. 'All FM', I think you can find it online...
Right I have to get in the shower and get ready for another lonnnnng day!
These lonnnng days stop next week and my first day off is Wednesday, Ben and I are going to Skipton (as it's a childhood place for me) for the day. His parents live there so I think we're going to meet up with them too. Can't wait, I really need a day off !
More pictures from the last day of the shoot:

Things have gone a bit weird in the last few days, but we plod along. Trying to catch up on my marking at the moment... oh and here are some stills from the project I'm doing at the moment:

my boys are back!
Dug returned the other night and we had a lovely night in with my records. Fun and japes were had by all.

Stayed up til stupid o'clock with Ben last night, which in itself was stupid cos I was rather ill yesterday, nearly passed out at work, and then collapsed at home, luckily my ginger lamb was there to look after me. I think I just managed to run myself down a bit too much. Feeling much better today but will need a nap before my second job at 6pm.
Wont see Chris til tomorrow really now as he's gigging tonight. Boo.

well, I am currently sat at work again.
Dropped off my car for it's final fixage - seems a tad like I'm throwing money at it at the moment, really seriously thinking about whether I can afford to get a new car, even maybe on credit ... we will see.
Full day at work today, my last lesson is with only 5 students! Which will either go great or weird. Or run short. We will see.
I am tired, I had a rotten nights sleep last night, kept waking up from weird dreams that made me feel like I was already at work. It was all a bit weird.
Tidied the flat a lot yesterday, looks like a girl lives there a bit more now! Even lit some joss sticks so the place smells better too.
Last night I also started what I hope to be a new stage of my life - I started to learn Yoga. Now, most of you will know that I'm pretty bendy, can lift my foot over my head, etc, so I thought this would be easy peasy. NO WAY JOSE! I suppose for some reason I didn't take into account that doing that stuff for a couple of seconds can be funny - holding a pose like that for a minute! OUCH! Anyhoo. I managed to get through the first 10 minutes before I gave up, mostly due to sore wrists, so I'm going to buy a mat and sort out my room so I can do that before I go to bed. We'll see how long it lasts - but I definately need something to get me back to being fit, think I mentioned rond here somewhere I'm the heaviest I've ever been at the moment, and I'm not impressed. Ben says it's cos I'm content, I think it's just cos I'm getting lazy. Chris and I even walked half the way home from workshops on Saturday. We both have dodgy knees so that was a feat in itself. I really do hope I can push myself hard enough to keep going with this... we'll see
Gonna publish this now just incase the computer decides to have a hissy fit.

yay I went on a small spending spree today and am the proud owner of a new digital camera, and a turntable!
Here is a picture off my new camera (keya just bought the same one too !).. it's a bit light and fiddly but the quality I'm pretty impressed with:

Chris is just making some lovely pizza then we are popping out to see people. Ben is in Edinburgh, and Dug STILL isn't back from London... boo.. I miss my boys.

Today was the second time anyone has ever hit me from behind in a car... the first time there was minimal damage and I didn't want to make a fuss, plus there were about 5 more vehicles involved and mine was hardly even dented (this is a good few years go now)..
Today I was sat at the traffic lights literally 40 seconds from work, abot to turn (it's a stupid junction anyway which sends you somewhere where you can no longer see the lights and you just have to wait for all the traffic to stop), and the traffic stopped so I started across the junction - only for the traffic to set off again! So I slammed on so I wouldn't plough into a load of people and the guy behind me slammed into the back of me. The first thing I thought was "Shit" obviously, and then I realised a weird thing... my neck felt fine! I have a dreadful neck, but it honestly felt fine! So I jumped out and got the guy to follow me to the nearest car park - not the one I'd normall park on. So we surveyed the damage. Not a lot, craked bumper and light out for me, nothing really for him and exchanged details. The poor lad looked terrified, I think it shook him up much more than me. Anyway, I said I'd call if I needed him to pay for anything - it's Chris's car, not mine, so I dont know what he wants me to do. And off I went to work. 10 seconds round the corner. Next thing I realise is the guy who hit me pulls up behind me and parks.
He is a student at the Uni! Deary me. I waved him off with a "see you around!"... bless.
Anyway, I really need a nap - I didnt' get back til 2am last night and I was up at 7am...
First night Chris and I have had together in ages so I want to make the most if it.
My car is being pixed today - something wrong with the steering aparantly... so I'm picking that up in an hour...

I made someone cry today, and it was horrible. I hate making people cry, and I hate hurting people. Why do I always manage to do it.
I can really suck sometimes.
