Today's high will be 16c

Today in Northampton it reached 16c apparently, though im thinking that it was more because i've started to brown from it already. Yes, my skin doesn't need much help turning brown, and it seldom burns or turns red. However in hull it was hotter - which is rarely seen. I did enjoy today extensively, after my first and only lecture of the week i went straight to the computer lab to finish off my ghost story that i had to write for English - which was like 1,000 words over the limit but i don't care. A story is a long as the writer wants it to be rather than the marker. Then on the way back to my flat, i went a different way than usual - i went around the back of the pav and past the field, and i saw my gang so i spent of the afternoon on the field, catching the rays, and playing Donkey. For people who haven't played Donkey it's quite simple. you throw the ball and you catch it. but here's the twist. If you drop the ball, you lose an arm, so you can only catch it with one hand, if you miss it on the 2nd one you have to get down on one knee, the next one you miss you have to get on both knees. and the final you have to get on the floor via your stomach. If you catch a ball succesfully after any of these you can go back on space, so i you're just just playing with one arm and you catch it you go back to normal. You get the drift?
Today i only got down on one knee, but Ashley actually got down on her stomach. Twitch got down onto both knees i think - so i'm thinking that i won!
Anyway, here's to more sun please.

Simon Armitage

I finally found the poem i have been looking for, for ages. Thanks to Holly. It was Simon Armitage rather than Ted Hughes. And here it is, it's my favourite poem i think


am very bothered when I think
of the bad things that I have done in my life.
Not least that time in the chemistry lab
when I held a pair of scissors by the blades
and played the handles
in the naked lilac flame of the Bunsen burner;
then called your name, and handed them over.
O the unrivalled stench of branded skin
as you slipped your thumb and middle finger in,
then couldn't shake off the two burning rings. Marked,
the doctor said, for eternity.
Don't believe me, please, if I say
that was just my butterfingered way, at thirteen,
of asking you to marry me.

School Sports Day

i so can't believe that the University has put on a School Sports Day for us, full of school classics as:

Saack Race
3 Legged Race
Wheel Barrow Race
Egg and Spoon
Tug Of War

Though, we never did any of that at school - not even primary, we did proper sports day stuff like running, and throwing and relay, and my event - the skipping race. I remember i used to win that every year, and one year i got beaten by Lisa Parker who also lived down my street. Ooh i was green with envy. i came 2nd that year, so the following year i was hungry to get back to my winning form. and that year Lisa tripped over and broke her ankle, and it was nothing to do with me being in the lane next to her. i promise ;-) That year i won, and that was the last year at Primary.

At school there was coloured teams - the Yellows, Blues and Reds. I in both the yellows and reds, i swopped to reds when i got moved to the reds in the Cub Scouts. But there was songs for the teams that the others used to sing louder than other teams. For reds it was - "reds, reds, wet their beds" for yellows it was "Yellows, yellows are fat fellows" and the blues were (which was my personal favourite chant "Blues, Blues always lose, cos they use their ballet shoes" And the funny thing was that the blues did always lose, i don't think they ever did win.

A high hush quitens the crickets' cry

I'd like to take some time now to remember two of the best poets' of past times. Ted Hughes - who i've loved since i was younger - i remember reading him in Year 10, as i'm sure you do too Holly. I've been looking for the untitled poem for ages, but i can't find it anywhere. It's the poem about when he branded a girl with a pair of scissors. It's my favourite but it's hard to find when it doesn't have a name. Ted Hughes was born in West Yorkshire (same place as me) and died of Cancer in 1998. A lot of his poetry was about nature, and in his early years a lot of what he wrote was very violent which was influences through his father's tales of World War One. And of course growing up on the Yorkshire Moors, inspired him to write about the nature around him. Animals appear frequently throughout his work: as pitcures of holiness, metaphor, persona and icon. Perhaps the most famous of his subjects is "Crow," a combination of god, bird and man, whose existence seems pivotal to the knowledge of good and evil.

The second poet i wish to remember is Sylvia Plath who's poetry, I am just discovering. A lot of her poetry is about depression, and it very dark, and it seems no surprise that she committed suicide in 1963 after 6 years of unsuccessful marriage to Ted Hughes. I know there is a film about her out right now - called Sylvia Plath played by Gwyneth Paltrow. I'm thinking about checking it out. Has anyone seen it?

Distant From Life

I have now figured out that i am no longer depressed with life. I am just a bit distant. And the reasons why i am distant? I have no one to talk to anymore. No staying up til 3am talking to keeper, watching movie, or sat in the computer room. Instead i'm doing all those things on my own. William Carey seems too far to go to my mates. Therefore i'm affectively shutting myself away from the world. Even my flatmates have noticed that i haven't been around. I haven't even spoken to one of them since before Easter. and i heard Ross say this morning say "Is James in?" Dan replied - "probably not, he's never in anymore". So at least i suppose my lack of presence is being noticed with some people. I've gotta make sure that i don't slip away too much though, otherwise it is going to be really hard to claw myself back up into reality.Another thing i have noticed since i have become happier is that i'm no longer writing. It seems that my spoute of depression was inspiring me to write. The fact that i have lost my work twice in this year so far doesn't help things though. First in October i lost my writings that i started back in 2000, which meant a lot to me. And now i half lost half of the writings that i did over Easter. i should really learn to back up my work. And then i lost a paper copy of a poem i wrote about someone from Uni, so that is floating its way around Uni probably. It was left in C101 during IBO1002.So realising i'm distant, means that i'm distant from EVERYTHING at the minute. Friends and everything. Though, miracolously my mood is better than it was during the first term. Though in the first term i tended to numb the pain with alcohol. But there's only so much pain that can be covered with alcohol, before it starts causing problems. I have a constant reminder that i keep away that reminds me of a time where i was at my lowest in life in 2002 in my journal but that doesn't seem to be a problem to me anymore. 2005 is when i'm suffering the most, and it all stems from September 2004. Don't get me wrong - i don't regret going to Uni at all, but i just sometimes wish it was easier. It seems that my pretend world is becoming more reality than reality itself. I'm changing so much these days that even i don't know what i'm becoming and i sometimes just sit back and let these changes happen - whereas before i used to be able to control the urges. I don't even know who i am anymore.

Looking with my eyes

Looking for a job is pretty stressful, especially when you can't find one, but you desperatly need one to do your next shopping. I have an interview lined up, but last time i went there i blew it for some reason. What should i do instead? I thought that was nearly the best interview i had given. I'm just so not used to interviews. When i started work at Swanland News there was no interview, i was a paperboy before that so i just got the job, then when i worked at Swanland Conveiance Store, it was a case of the manager coming up to me and saying "Do you want a job?" the next day i was training. Then when i worked at BHS, it was a group interview, which i aced, along with Fiona, though i wasn't there long before i quit (about 2 months). Then there was Subway, where i really didn't want to work at all from the start, but i thought i'd give it a go. Oh how wrong i was for giving it a go - i lasted 3 working days.
So i've only had 50% success rate since i've been in Northampton with interviews that is. But still i'm thinking that maybe i'm just not good at interviews at all.

So what should i act like? Out there, or just normal? This time i'll dress better for Vue though cos last time i went in my cream trainers - maybe that was why? Well i didn't have any work shoes back then, so what was i supposed to do? I also tend to ace interviews better when it is a woman interviewing me too. I've only had one male interview me - and that's the one i didn't get.

Typical English Weather

Why is English weather so extreme? A few days ago it was well warm and we were all out on the field, bathing in the sun, albeit not enough to get a tan, but it was still enough to be able to feel good about life. The day that my SAD finally disapeared. I no longer feel depressed, i just feel distant. Which isn't helped by the fact that i haven't seen my gang since last Wednesday, and i haven't been out for over two weeks now.

Anyway, now it is chucking it down, on my first visit to the computer rooms, if it's raining like this after dinner, then i don't think i'll make me infamous 2nd trip.

Funnily enough, this is my favourite time of year, when it's just about getting warm, and people start getting the BBQ's out. First ones started like a week ago. Note it. BBQ's at this time of year are always dangerous though because of the threat of rain. Which is a typical thing in Spring in England, i'd even hazard a guess that we get more rain in Spring then we do in Winter.

But still i'd rather live here with the rain then somewhere that is realy warm.

Sugar Water

Okay to celebrate the end of Hallo day, i'm goign to suggest you all check out Cibo Matto. The song Sugar Water is brilliant. And the lyrics are just genuis, i especially like the second verse. For all you Buffy fans out there, the song can be seen in the Season Two Premiere "When She Was Bad", it's playing when Buffy walks into the Bronze and dances with Xander, when she says "Did i ever thank you for saving my life" Xander replies "No". Buffy whispers in his ear "Don't you wish i would" before walking out of the Bronze, ignoring Angel and Willow. I love that scene.

The velocity of time turns her voice into sugar water

I’m on a concrete way
The wind is blowing to the north-northwest
It smells like sands of the southern island
When a black cat crosses my path

A woman in the moon is singing to the earth
A woman in the moon is singing to the earth

La la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la la

I’m riding on a camel that has big eyes
The buildings are changing into coconut trees
Little by little
When a black cat crosses my path

A woman in the moon is singing to the earth
A woman in the moon is singing to the earth

La la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,
la la la la la laLa la la,

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

Prompted by Keeper, about doing quizzes, i went to www.quizfarm.com. And i was going to see "How I Was Going To Die". And i was a little freaked out that i got 100% suicide. "Your death will be suicide. What more can I say? Fact: Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem." I wish i hadn't done it

The Soft Drinks Debate

Oh my god, i saw the funniest thing today on one of my friends blogs. it was a healthy debate on which was better - Pepsi or Coca Cola.

How can people argue over this. They are nearlly the same anyway. Though i do prefer Pepsi - but only if it's Pepsi Max. Any other Pepsi is just too foul.

Oh my god, now i'm debating the whole Pepsi vs Coca Cola thing.

The reason i think that Coca Cola out sells Pepsi is that CC is a much more established brand. It has more advertising on TV, and it came first. It is for sure that Coca Cola doesn't out sell Pepsi due to the fact that "it tastes better, in fact market research shows that in tastes tests Pepsi has come out the winner. However Coke sells because i feel that its drinkers indentify with their values: truth and tradition. Whereas Pepsi values are about change. Cocacola has alway been the "real thing" whereas Pepsi tends to speak to the "new generation".

When Coca-Cola launched New Coke, they had abandoned their values of tradition. Even though New Coke tasted better than Coke and it beat Pepsi in taste tests, it did bombed because its drinkers believed that tradition was better for the company. If they had wanted change they would have already converted to the Pepsi brand.

Be A Deviant

I am really getting into this whole deviant art thing. And i'm loving the feedback i'm getting from complete random people. Today i got from someone. At first i thought this was just going to be a thing that no-one really looks at - that's how my work has always been before i discovered Deviant Art, but now that people are actively commenting on my work, it makes me feel that i am actually good at this, and it insipres me to write more.
Before i came to uni, i had never written a single poem in my life - i just couldn't. I was always told to stick to the rules and go for the rhyme schemes. But now i say FUCK that, throw that all out of the window. Poetry doesn't have to have set patterns at all. It's a form of expressing ones self, and being told to formulate that into a set of ideologies is something that kind of takes away the truth from the work. Having to stick to the rules, surely means that it put restrictions on the poem, therefore becoming kind of fake, as it were.

Anyway anyone wanna check out my work so far it can be found at my Deviant Art site - See The Art Of Me link at the side.


Prepare For The 3rd Coming

I have been given a lifeline. The 2nd ressurection of my laptop will take place on Tuesday 26th April 2005. Hopefully it will work, and by joe, i can't wait for Tuesday to come.

Staring At The Sun

Rooster will be doing a signing session at HMV in Northampton on Weds 27th April. And that night they are playing at the Roadmender. Ooh, i'm going to try get tickets.

Oh, and the Retro Spankess next gig, Ross informs me is, at the Picturedrome on the 12th May at the Kainerface event - the place where i fell in love with them. And then at Soundhaus on the 30th May at 5.30pm


I've been reading random blogspots today and came across an interesting one called bump on the blog. with such posts like "Confessions of a frustrated doormat" and "This is kinda like therapy...right? " if there was no-one else in the computer room with me i would laugh out loud.
He says in "Has your cheese slid off your cracker?" - Dinner was delicious, and they had the restaurant crew sing to me. Bitches!" and "All of the sudden, the fucker leaned down and started sucking on my neck. " "Last night I had my first meeting with my new therapist. She rocks. She is really easy to talk to, and responds to things I say (duh..isn't that her job?)" and then the rest is like....i don't particuarly wanna say....

Disaster Has Struck

It seems that the race for 2nd race in the Premership is over, bar a miracle. Manchester United have lost the last two games to Norwich (2-0)- who have only managed to win like 4 games all season (figure to be checked), and Everton (1-0) who they haven't lost against since 1995 in the FA Cup Final which finished 1-0 (i remember watching it). Ah not only did they lose but they had two players sent off - Gary Neville and Paul Scholes - furthering our troubles with our squad - something we have had a lot of trouble with all season. If you ask me, things were fine until Fergie got rid of David Beckham - the Wonder Boy.
The only consellation we got from the game, came from Wayne Rooney, who sensationally left Everton last season to move to Manchester United. A move which outraged many Everton fans. Rooney was again abuse with verbal chants all the way through the game, however didn't really lose it - he left that to Gary Neville who kicked a ball into a kids face. What was funny was that Wayne turned to the Park End of Goodison Park and kissed the Man Utd badge, which really got the Everton fans all worked up. Brilliant stuff from Wayne Rooney there. Best move he's made all season.
I fear for the FA Cup Final against Arsenal which is on May 21st. Good luck lads.

I'd like to confirm the death of....

I would like to confirm the death of my laptop. It's the second time my laptop died within 6 months. So i'm having to go to the computer lab to do work. Which means people, i won't be able to go on msn until i get the laptop sorted out. But if people i know have AIM - Aol Instant Messenger - i'm on that and i can get that on the uni computers. Add my addy - SIMONSENLIS
What happened - and this is just conjecture - is that a Trojan Horse virus was slowly killing my hard drive - AGAIN, and yesterday 21/04/05 it finally attacked everything that it had got into to. Now it won't get past the Toshiba screen cos it's corrupted all my windows files, so it can't find windows - cos it aint there. So i need to rebuild it. Which will cost me like 60quid. Not a lot but its still money that i don't have.

The death of my laptop means i have lost all my work that i have done over this year at uni. I have lost over 600 photos that i have taken at uni. I have lost the poetry that i wrote over Easter that i haven't have time to post on my DeviantArt page. Lost all my music that i had recorded. I'm starting to slowly hate technology now. Bring back the pen and paper anyday.
Yesterday was a really bad day. Not only did people change their minds about going to the cinema to see The Interpreter - 5 minutes before it was due to start, but i lost a poem that i wrote in Popular Culture last week, i think i lost in a lecture, and i also got an email from my English teacher saying to go and see him to explain why i had poor attendence for the past 12 weeks. Uh-oh. Despite the beautiful weather which eradicated my SAD, but started my Hayfever - yesterday was crap. Period.

Once again it's a sad day in the Marshall flat

My laptop has broken. It just won't load up. It did this morning, and i left it on whilst i went to my ONE lecture, came back and it was alright, then i went out onto the field to lay around and chat with people, because it was really warm today, and the field was packed with people. Anyway, i went back to my room at like 5 and i ran the virus scan. 20 minutes into the scan, it had picked up a Trojan Horse virus on part of the bootdisc. Then it stopped responding, so i reset the laptop, and since it hasn't been able to load up. I've tried to boot up using Safe Mode, but it still gets stuck on that. Anyone know what i could do?

Today it reached nearly 18c in Northampton, and everyone was out on the field, catching the rays. It was warm though, well for us. People right now actually have BBQ's out on the field between Simon Senlis and William Carey. It seems that Spring has indeed started and we are seeing the beginnings of an early summer. Hmm, it's all good then. (holly is it GRAVY?)

Stand Up Speak Up

Hey i finally got my stand up speak up wrist band. The same day I found that it's now cheapers - BASTARDS.

anyway, racism is a big problem in worldwide football at the moment, and it is everyone's problem. There's is something you do. Wear the wristband and stand together with players and other fans to show the racists that we are not going to stand for their behaviour anymore.

Another cause i'm supporting at the minute is MakePovertyHistory

Natasha Bedingfield

I urge you to all go buy Natasha Bedingfield's new single - I Bruise Easily - i love the song, and as a B Side it's got the Brits performance she did with her much more talented brother Daniel Bedingfield - it's going on my mini disc as soon as i go back to Uni. The song they did, incase you didn't know is Ain't Nobody. I loved the song - and now i love it even more.

I Dream Of Them

Okay, why do i keep on dreaming about the Spice Girls in concert? I've had it like three times within the last year or so. And hey, Holly - you're there too go crazy when they come on stage, and when i get on stage with them, you get all crazy, but then again when i start talking to Geri i run around around yelling HELLO GERI HELLO GERI HELLO GERI (it's the old geri by the way - the Ginger that died in Look at Me) But Holly - You Spice Girl Lover!

Northern Star

I've been listening to an artist a lot recently, and i totally connect with this song now. It's called Northern Star and it's by Melanie C (she's so much better without the other Spice Girls), and she's nothing like them when she's on her own. Check out her new album BEAUTIFUL INTENTIONS released on her own label - Red Girl Records, out now. I'll be linking her website soon under MUSIC links

Here's the lyrics to Northern Star

They tried to catch a falling star
Thinking that she had gone too far
She did but kept it hidden well
Until she cracked and then she fell

If all the history is true
She's gonna end up just like you
You made it to the other side
But tell me who will be my guide?

They build you up
So they can tear you down
Trust the ocean
You'll never drown
Who is next?
Who's gonna steal your crown?
You'll see

I have learned my lesson well
The truth is out there I can tell
Don't look back and don't give in to their lies
And goodbyes
Northern Star

Fulfil a longing in your heart
And we will never be apart
And if they dare to question you
Just tell them that our love is true

They buy your dreams so they can sell you soul
Is it any wonder we've lost control?
Feelings come
Feelings go

I have learned my lesson well
The truth is out there I can tell
Don't look back and don't succumb to their lies
And goodbyes

Live your life without regret
Don't be someone who they forget
When you're lost reach out for me
And you'll see
She's not far
Northern Star

I have learned my lesson well
The truth is out there I can tell
Don't look back and don't succumb to their lies
And goodbyes

Live your life without regret
Don't be someone who they forget
When you're lost reach out for me
And you'll see
She's not far
Northern Star

Thinking life is shit

Sometimes i wonder why am i living if i think that life is shit? Wow, and this isn't even the point at which life depresses me.
I think about it, and i realise that what is harder than living life, is ending it.

Paul's Land

I'm so mad at the minute because i can't log onto my natwest account online, it says that the password has changed - which it so hasn't - which can only mean one thing - a hacker - and if they have, and what i read on my account balance from the ATM was right, i am fucked all over again. So once again i'm going to have to trott down to Natwest on Thursday to ask for a statement so i can check everything - there is no way i've spent nearlly all my money already - i know i didn't have a lot this term but there's no way i've spent it in a week - isn't that like so impossible?
I wish it was sunny, so could go on Paul's Land to take pictures. Once again, i think i am going to have to wait til summer to do this.
I've become slightly addicted to Theme Park World - i've built a total park within like 3 hours, and i made like 30,000 within 5 minutes. Oh i love it, it's such a classic computer game.
And i just got told off by my Grandad for writing FUCKED, "you could have wrote FUKD" yeah like it's any better.

I Feel Just Like I'm Sinking And I Claw For Solid Ground

I haven't felt this low in a long time, and monday night was about the worse night of it all. Talk about not feeling wanted. I mean, why the fuck did i stay around, i should have just left when i said i was going to, but instead i stay to please other people. To make sure that people knew not of what i was going through. Which still didn't work because i wasn't smiling, and i couldn't. What am i supposed to do? Fake smile to please other people? Bull shit. I need a break from all this already, and i've only been back for a week. How bad is that?! But at least i'll be cheered up hopefully at the weekend. This feeling of loss, is like someone has died, which of course they haven't and this feeling of wanting what i can't have (only a stone's throw away) is also depressing me. Being confused also about life in general is a bummer. Confusion has been the root of my childhood, and now finally in adulthood, i'm unable to shake it - what CAN i do to get rid of it. I can't talk about things, because i don't do that kind of thing. Even to myself. Especially to myself. Something that happened a long time ago, i've only just been able to except, Uni has finally made me realise this. Life is hard. Life is shit. But it's worth living, because there is nothing better.

I Urge You!

I urge you to stop what you are doing right now, and wear your watch on the opposite arm - how wierd does it feel????????? Very to me, i felt so uncomfortable wearing it on my right wrist.

"I'm not your fucking mother"

The Ring 2 - whilst it not be good - wasn't THAT bad. I liked it just for the comment from Rachel (Naomi Watts) "I'm not your fucking mother" and also Aidan/Samara eating the the PBJ sandwich was pretty funny - in fact i wanna see it again just so i can laugh at it all over again.

The Game Is On

Does anyone remember the comedy show Game On? It was on the BBC in the mid 90s. It is quite possibly one of my favourite shows ever! It went down after series one - and the reason? I don't think Neil Stuke has quite the same presence as Ben Chaplin did playing Matthew. Ben Chaplin - the most underrated English actor. In such great films as Birthday Girl and Murder By Numbers, amongst other.

Does sex change a friendship?

Something to think about.


Good movies that i have seen this holiday whilst i have been a home are:
Bully, Grand Theft Parsons and Cheaters. Think all should check these out


Live. Love. Kill. For Kicks.
Acclaimed director Larry Clark delivers his most powerful film since Kids. Marty (Brad Renfro) is a tormented surfer who, despite vicious abuse, relies on his longtime pal, Bobby (Nich Stahl), for rides to the beach and local South Florida bars. When Bobby turns his unwanted attention to Marty's new girlfriend Lisa (Rachel Miner) and her best friend Ally (Bijiou Phillips), Lisa decides Bobby's reign of terror must end. Assembling a crew of alienated suburban teens, she forms a deadly plan to get Bobby out of the way once and for all. As the conspiracy unfolds, friends turn into enemies and casual acquaintances become co-defendants to a murder that rocked America to its core.

The emotional tax from that film just basically ran me down that couldn't spoil it by watching another film. But this film is very good. I kept on wondering where the film was set and i was like its Australia but they were talking in American accents so i was like it can't be....but it totally looks like down under.

Grand Theft Parsons

Based on a true story: it's better to burn out than to fade away!
There are times when it's right and proper to simply bury the dead. This is not one of those times. Gram Parsons was one of the most influential musicians of his time; a genius who knew Elvis and the Stones and led the Byrds. As fame and fortune came within his grasp, he died unexpectedly in 1973.
When Gram's best friend and road manager Phil Kaufman (Johnny Knoxville) hears the news, he gets busy to fulfil an old promise - to cremate his buddy in the majestic desert wilderness of Joshua Tree. The plan looks great but there are snags - he has to steal the body from under the noses of the authorities, then evade the police, Gram's father and an avenging ex-girlfriend, with only a stoned hippy for company and driving a psychedelic hearse!

ah just for the fact that Christina Applegate is in this


Chicago's Steinmetz High School doesn't have a hope of winning the state's academic contest. Their rival - Whitney Young - is a winning school that hand-picked it's way to the top. But one teacher and his students know they can succeed with the right about of study, the right application, the right discipline... the right answers.
When one of them steals the test papers, the biggest question becomes: should they cheat their way to the trophy? Winning will make or break the rest of their lives, and for the first time they have all the right answers - except one.

Made me question my morals on cheating
