ugh i was supposed to go to san diego with friends today. the only stipulation my parents had was that they talk to my friend's parents. i kept nagging him to get them to call but he never actually achieved this. so now i'm just fucked over because he's a procrastinating idiot, and i'm not used to things not being my fault so this is just fucking annoying... i really needed this vacation. i really did.
this is just on top of a lot of other bullshit so i would really like a reason to not hate everything

Assuming you are talking about this I don't know what they mean either.

I've had several and the scan itself is just an x-ray. However, if they are using a contrast of some sort that will probably make you feel icky. Barium in particular sucks but that's mainly trying to gag it down. If they're doing an IV then depending on what they use it can be unpleasant. Luckily I haven't had to have a contrast administered via an enema. Although if I had to choose between that and having to drink another barium 'milkshake' I would definitely consider the enema.

I went to Buffalo for the first time ever, really, last night! I mean, I've been there, but never wandered around to see the sights and what not.

Buffalo does not have sights. Buffalo was the saddest fucking town I've ever been to.

The reason? My girlfriend missed her bus and ended up coming in at night so we wandered around before I decided to drive us back. We stopped in at my (very British) grandmother's house, and she said, "Oh, been ramming around, you two?" Claire got this look on her face like, "Did she really just say that?" to which my grandmother responds, "Oh, I know what you're thinking, you're thinking of rams now."

I love my grandmother.

Good luck with the shake. I found it more unpleasant than the IV.
If they give you some to take the night before for all that is holy make sure that it is well chilled before drinking it.

Invest in some Gojo (which you can get at any automotive store) or this, which will remove it not only from your skin, but it can remove paint from clothes too. Much better and waaaaay less smelly than turpentine.

Today was my day off blog thread. I spent this day, which was a really nice, warm, sunny day, sitting in my apartment playing on the internet. This is how many of my days off go. Needless to say it is getting pretty boring. I'm thinking of getting a hobby to occupy my time better. When I was in highschool I used to do archery (there is no good verb form for this, it annoys me) so I've been looking into getting back into it as it was very enjoyable. There is an archery club in Coogee (there is a bus near my house that goes right by there!) that I could join but I would need to buy some new equipment. Luckily my bow is still in fantastic condition (I used it for about a year but kind of fell out of archery while I was at uni) but I need new arrows and a new quiver plus some other stuff. I could buy all of this online but I'm thinking of tricking my girlfriend into driving me to the supplier (which is like, 40 minutes away) as I'm going to be spending upwards of $250 on all the stuff I need and if I don't have to pay for shipping that would be awesome.

I also need to buy some more clothes. I need new trousers/jeans and I don't necessarily need to buy fatigues anymore because now that I've quick smoking there is significantly less for me to carry. Also it is time to go through my tshirts and throw a bunch out and replace them with comic book tshirts. Need new boots too. Fucking hell everything is going to be expensive!

Similar situation: my best friend just called me and told me he needs a thousand dollars by tomorrow or he'll get served an eviction notice (apparently his slumlord landlords are asking him for a lot more money to renew his lease than he'd expected and are ready to start showing the apartment to other people).  I've got the money (it's more than half my bank account) but I've seen my friend fail to pay off comparable debts in the past and I can't even really envision a foreseeable future in which he's not barely scraping by anyway.  I don't want him to owe me a thousand bucks.  It might very well be too much for him to pay off in any sort of reasonable time frame.  I also don't want him to be evicted because he would have nowhere to go and no way to get there.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to give him the money, because he is all different kinds of totally fucked if I don't.  But I really don't know how we're going to handle things from there on out.

This week I am working 6 out of the 7 seven days (yesterday was my day off), ending the week with another 12.5 hour shift on Sunday. The other girl doing a double on Sunday with me is working every day this week and about four of those days have double shifts. Sunday night is going to be interesting, because we are both going to be knackered. At least I am working at another cafe tonight with the old owner of my actual job, who is actually enjoyable to work with and knows what he is doing and it is a smaller cafe and all round easier job. Awesome!

Giving an unreliable friend a couple of hundred dollars is one thing. Giving him a thousand for anything less than a vital medical procedure is something else again. Can you house him at your place until he finds somewhere else to live? Can you find him alternative, temporary accomodation? There are better ways to be a friend than by giving him a big wad of cash. Also, I've lived in a house owned by a slumlord landlord, and trust me, he's better off out of that situation regardless of how it happens.

I'm in Edinburgh!

I would tell you to call me but I sat on my phone and it is broken. I'm bringing it in for repairs now though. Might drop out of work tomorrow to go see your play thing! And if my phone is fixed PM you my number!

Yesterday involved: Working at the List 9-5 updating reviews, writing previews and generally cropping lots of images, going to the freshair studio to put on my own show and talked to a couple of guests (we made balloon animals and did magic tricks on air, with limited success). Then I played touch rugby (we're thinking of joining a league, right now our team is called Battle Ready Touch Robots: Athletes in Disguise) for a good hour and a half, and then I went back to the studio to produce the radio show for ThreeWeeks, one of magazines publishing reviews and interviews, and there were a ton of awesome guests in the studio for that. Then I went and saw the Blues Brothers (fantastic), and we hung out in a bar that is usually an exam venue and had cheap drinks because we know someone that works there.

Ended with me going home and playing some guitar, realizing I forgot my laptop charger at the office, and then reading a book. I was technology-less for basically a day and it was awesome.

Edit: phone repair is going to take a day. dang.

Not sure. I didn't ask, all I give a shit about is making rent. At $8.25/hour I'm making 90 cents less than I've made at my jobs for the last 2 years, but eh, it's money. I'll have to see what they say at orientation.

You'll get 10% and all the self-loathing you can muster.

Blog Thread, some dude tried to pick me up in a bookshop this evening. A stone cold stranger hit on me. It was terrifying. This is not something that has ever happened to me. This is the first actual time (not including the homeless guy who asked me what colour my pubic hair was at the busstop once).

He looked like the Old Spice Guy. But with hair. When he spoke, he sounded like the Old Spice Guy. Except not on a computer. "May I compliment you?" he asked my back.
"Oh, uh, sorry, yeah," I turned and sort of giggled once I figured out what he said.
"Seriously, you look amazing."
"Oh. Thanks."
He told me his story in a nutshell (just moved here, studying music) and offered his hand.
I shook it, terrified.
He asked me some questions about myself but I think I just sort of blew them off with monosyllables. What do I do what do I do my internal monologue said frantically.
After a minute I managed to sort of shuffle away from him to the other side of the bookshop. I hoped I hadn't moved to the Erotica section. This bookshop has a rather large one.
Old Spice Guy With Hair appeared behind me again. "Taken?" he murmured cheekily.
"Yes," I said firmly, without looking up. I slid over to the Graphic Novels and set up camp on the floor.

When I looked up again he was gone.
Phew.

Were you terrified because you were literally frightened of him or was it nerves because you've never been in that particular social situation before? Because the idea that the Old Spice Guy is real and just brazenly walks up to attractive women seems so perfect to me.

I have only ever hit on strangers in shops by accident (ie. it's only after a minute of conversation that I realize I'm flirting.) Which actually leads me to suspect that you have probably been hit on by strangers before when you worked in the coffee shop, but they were being too subtle and you just didn't notice.
