The bf went to a magician's convention in Blackpool the other weekend, and this was in the programme. I can't think of words brilliant enough to do it justice...
OK, so I'm so over the Siemens SL55. Reviews panned it for breaking down constantly, so cherry red and titanium seductive sleekness is just not enough. I've stuck with my creaky Alcatel for the time being until I can be bothered to upgrade again.
So I was checking out possible hotels near the venue for a show I'm doing in London in late March, and came across this self-penned description which made me laugh:
The Hotel is a very pleasant, friendly, but unpretentious hotel situated in Hammersmith. No1 Hotel on the road. Finest rooms, unchallenged locally. Try the newest and cleanest rooms in the area. The relaxed atmosphere of the hotel ensures that visitors are made to feel welcome. There are many good restaurants pubs and cinemas plus Apollo nearby. Please try us as we are the best and can prove it whether you are an individual or a group, no one in our road can match or beat us.
Somehow the bf & I managed to drink three bottles of chardonnay between us last night. Hic. And now I'm quite hungover, and tired too because I woke up at 5:30 am feeling ill and couldn't get back to sleep. I'm sure I'm getting punished for having fun on a school night...
Manchester is the only place I've lived where the city buses let you ride for free because you're trying to pay with a fiver and they haven't got any change. You can't buy standard tickets any other way, so it's get on and see what happens. But seeing as they *never* have change, maybe I should always try and pay with a big bill! You also often see people desperately haggling with the change-less drivers: "I've got £1.20 and some pennies, ok?"
Happy, tired and sad all at once.
