Actually, it's 7 minutes until my friends get here, and New Years Eve can officially begin!
I got back from France about an hour ago so obviously I haven't got time to write a proper NYE post about everything that's changed and who I love etc etc etc.
BUT I will say this:

I hope this year brings all my followers (and everyone else!) everything they could possibly wish for.
Here's to 2011!
Now go out, and get smashed.
So that's me done for 2K10. I'll write more for tomorrow,but for now...what are your plans for 2011?
See you next year!!

Just checking in,

to say the requisite Happy Holidays!
Something tells me I'm a little late for Happy Christmas. 
Nevertheemind, though.
My holidays thus far have been a whirlwind of family and friends, being dragged here there and everywhere to Auntie This and Auntie That. 
Not to say that it hasn't been amazing!
It has.

ANYWAY here are some neither imaginitive or exciting pictures that sum up the hols for me.

Oh and before you switch off, how was your Christmas? Do anything exciting? Get any nice presents?

An ice-cold Boxing Day walk with my bffls.
Dusty and Milo livin' it up.
  Slippy ice, isn't it?

Playing "The Game With No Name," a Christmas staple. 
Pretty sure this is me in hysterics trying to act out Prince William.

My adorable lovely Gran.


 Eh, sitting on a sofa. 
You know how we do.
Told you it was boring. Thanks for sticking around anyway :)

Ladies (and gents) YOUR BLOGGER NEEDS YOU

Well, not all of you. Only the ones who've read, are reading, intend to read, have watched, are watching, intend to watch, anything concerning, related to or appertaining to Ronald Bilius Weasley.

LOOK AT THAT FACE. I have a question for you, dear readers: how could anyone profess to dislike that face, or indeed Ron the don?

Well I have a friend, let's call her CRUEL HEARTLESS HATER (chh for short) who is a Ron hater. A Ron hater! I didn't even know they existed!

CHH and I in happier times. For reference, I'm the ginge with the thunder thighs.
So she hates Ron. And I'm going to change her mind. And I'm going to achieve that by giving her a numbered list of reasons everybody loves Ron. Which is where you guys come in. Because I'm lazy and have a bad memory.

So far I have one.

1) Noble defence of Hermione when she gets called a mudblood; eats slugs just for her.

This is the kind of thing I would like - definable examples of times when Ron is just a fantastic fantastic guy. (I've tried explaining that it's his flaws that make him human, she won't listen because she's a CHH.)

Music qui m'a changé!

Today's special segment, provisionally entitled Songs That Have Changed Or At Least Significantly Affected My Short And Mostly Irrelevant Life.

As an introduction, this was brought about by me watching an absolutely incredible Harry Potter montage vid called Marching On. It gives me genuine shivers, JUST THAT GOOD! Let me link you. Apologies if you aren't a Potterhead...actually no, no apologies, become one now pls.

Just...ach, so amazing! Whilst this song obviously hasn't changed my life, it reminds me of the moste excellente dynastie that has taken over my spare time since the dawn of the new millenium. So ta-da. Let us now delve into the past for some more significant musicas:

1) Misfit - Amy Studt

I cannot for the life of me find an actual video.

So, Emma, this isn't a great song per se...why has it changed or affected your life in a significant manner?
 Well, anonymous interviewer, here's the truth: like most, if not all teenage girls, I had an identity crisis. I didn't fit in, I was ugly, I was uncool, I spent many a night crying, I even briefly became a goth.
I listened to this song, and it told me that it was okay to feel normal. It taught me that even though  I'm a misfit...that's okay!

Also on the subject of misfits...can I get a HNGGG?

future!Simon has me quivering all over like jelly. JELLY I TELL YOU.


2) Come On Get Higher - Matt Nathanson

This song has about a hundred memories attatched to it. It reminds me of a specific period of time when a lot of things happened in life.

1) The initial beginnings of one of my favourite stories...I used to walk along the road imagining all the relationships between the characters and this song really symbolised the fantastic, fractured, broken relationship of my two protagonists.
2) When I first started at Tesco, my natural ridiculous anxiousness kicked in and I found myself terrified to walk into the common room. One day I literally just sat in the park (this was in November) and this song was on, and it was so cold and I was so scared of being socially retarded for the rest of my life. Only one year ago. Things have changed, seriously, and it's partly Tesco I have to thank for that...I'm so much more confident now!
3) I had a weird semi-crush on one of the guys at work at around the same time this song was in my head, and he walked past, and the image has stuck in my head.

Come on get higher,
loosen my lips,
faith and desire and the
swing of your hips just
pull me down hard and
drown me in love.

The lyrics are amazing too, aren't they.

3)Everytime- Britney Spears

School disco, 2004. I'm eleven years old and I have to stick my head behind the piano in the corner to cry, because no-one asked me to dance to this song.

Okay...not a happy memory, the end of 7 years of incredible uncoolness. It's okay though because this song was running through my head that night whilst I was in bed and I realised...I was sort of okay on my own. It's an emotion that's stuck with me throughout my 17 years of singledom. It's not ideal. But it's sort of okay.

4) Old Bill Jones - Camp Hill Girls MASSIVV!1!!111!!

There is, predictably, no video for this. But it's our unofficial school song and it's fucking awesome. I hear this song and it makes me sad, because I'm leaving soon and I'm gonna miss it so hard :(

5)  Undiscovered - James Morrison

Because I'm not lost,
Not lost,
Just undiscovered.

WELL THAT'S THAT FOR NOW. Much love to you if you watched all of them. Enjoy the rest of your week :)

All I want for christmas...

From Uncommon Goods...

Some seriously fit necklaces right there.
The second one quotes from a poem as well..."I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul."
 An actual fisheye camera. Because I love fisheye pictures but I can't afford a DSLR base, let alone the lense.

These adorably mismatched socks...I like how they match and don't match at the same time.

I'm craving patterned tights from Topshop 

I've wanted an IKEA day bed since my friend got one 3 years ago...picture it with some nice covers on, wouldn't it be pretty?

And if you feel like splashing out...

My doorstep. Christmas morning. Make it happen.

I am having a fit of festive cheer.
So. If you want a christmas card (not homemade or anything, just your bog standard pound shop jobby) with some handwritten words by me, email me your address to :D
