Hung Up A Man After Midnight

Tonight i nearly marked out when i heard the backtrack of "Gimme A Man After Midnight" and was all ready to dance and sing along to Madonna, when it actually turned out to be the original ABBA song - so was alittle dissapointed...until...

Hung Up was remixed into the song in the end. - after hearing this Madonna song for the first time in a club

UK - number one in tornados

There was yet another Tornado to hit the Midlands yesterday, and after reading about it on the net i came across this

"With the amount of media coverage dedicated to American storm-chasers, you'd think the US had the monopoly on these twisters. It doesn't. It might come as a shock, but the United Kingdom is actually the world's most tornado-prone nation. This fact was calculated by the late Dr Fujita of Chicago University. He devised the standard method of measuring tornado intensity. Fujita figured that since Britain has an average of 33 tornadoes every year in an area 38 times smaller than the USA, you're twice as likely to witness a tornado here. "

I remember when one hit Ferriby back in about 1999, and it was when i was doing my paper round - it actually threw me off the bike, and i couldn't hardly ride my bike.
There was also one back in about 1989 that hit Hull i remember because my Dad was affected by it - upon leaving work a piece of chimney hit him on the head.

I've Been A Long Way From Home...But I'm Finally Returning

My original love = Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

When did i stop caring?

Since it's been off the air i've been watching very little of the show - and can probably count on two hands how many episodes i've watched since 2003 (the end of the show). So what has changed? Why have i moved on when this was such a big thing in my life? Buffy was my favourite show on earth back in the day, and at the time i couldn't think of my life without it. I remember when Buffy left Sunnydale at the end of Season 2, it hit me this show is going to end someday, and it hit me even more when Buffy died at the end of Season 5.

Maybe it's because i'm away from the environment in which i watched it - it was through high school and sixth form and now that has finished maybe it's because i'm not in the same place i was when i started and finished it. I've let SO many things escape me since i've been at Uni - and maybe that has been a really bad thing about Uni.

I know in my heart that nothing will ever replace Buffy, and i hope it doesn't.

*Sorry if it's sound sappy and that i'm run by TV but it's my blog and i'll rant if i want to*

Trick Of The Trade

My connection is still playing up but hopefully the things that i#m doing right now are helping the situtaion.

Trouble In The Mix

I'm having trouble with my internet connection again - same problem as before but hopefully i have just sorted out. Well we'll see if i'm still here in 10 minutes (that's normally how long my connection lasts after rebooting when i have this problem)

Children In Need

It is that time of year again that we all get together in the United Kingdom and sit in front of the TV in a bid to raise money for charity.

Even though Gabby is no longer doing the show with Sir Wogan, the show is not disappointing! Even madonna got laughed (and not at her terrible performance) at - she read the number out to ring and pledge, and then denyed that she read it wrong. You know love, 2's sometimes do look like 0's.

Thank you for making your reservation on AA.com!

I'm on the way to America! In 2007!

but anyone know how to get a work permit for America?

Keeper - i may have to marry you so i can get into the country!LOL

Anyway. so bascially, lately i've been thinking about my options after Uni, and i came up with one - that seems to be my favourite, is to apply for my graduate overdraft which will take about 3 minutes, and then just use that money to go somewhere - and that place is basically New York. I'm in love with the city already and i haven't even been - i want it to be London and oh so much more (and it better be for the price of the place ticket), whether or not it's going to be a oneway ticket or a return is another thing, but i've been looking into working visa's and stuff like that - which has confused me even more - so i might have to look into that subject more. But before Xmas of the year i leave Uni(2007) i want to go to New York.

It's just that i've been thinking recently about how i've been living away from home now for over a year, and it dawned on me that i can't see myself going back to Hull to live with my Mum again as a permanent solution. Don't get me wrong, last year was the worst year of my life, i don't think i was a strong enough person to be away from home, and to be that independent, but something changed in me over the summer that just made me think that this is my life now and i can't go back to what my life was before. Independence is what i need and it's the only way that i'm going to be able to move forward.

I know one thing - i'm going to need help along the way

The Vampire Name Game


My Vampire Name -

The Great Archives determine you to have gone by the identity: Hanzi Keat

Known in some parts of the world as: Father of The Highway Thieves

The Great Archives Record: Takes more than gold from the rich on the highway - takes blood too.

Confessions On A Dance Floor.

I'm totally syched that i've got this album now. And Holly - i didn't return KT for her - but i did spend my last money on her. I will take KT back for either NOW 62 when it's released or for something else (yet to decide). I also bought something else today but i'm not allowed to tell anyone what it is because it's the same as Holly's Xmas present - i bought two copies - how would you feel if i actually bought you Madonna's album for Xmas, Holly? Would you literally throw it back into my face?

People you have to at least check out the last song on the album, it's called Like It Or Not. It's my favourite Madonna to date - so no longer is Impressive Instant from the Music album my favourite.

Because Of You

Has anyone else heard this song? It's by Kelly Clarkson, and from the look of the video it's all about her parent's divorce which obviously i can totally relate to. It's a really beautiful song and it's on the same par (in my mind) as Sarah McLachlan's Full Of Grace. I really like the lyrics of Because Of You, - so for your enjoyment i will post them here.

Holly - have you bought the album yet? _ BREAKAWAY - im on about. If Not i'll do a copy for you cos i've got some blank cd's now. So let me know.

Everyone else - check out this song.

I will not make the same mistakes that you did
I will not let myself cause my heart so much misery
I will not break the way you did
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way, to never let it get that far
Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid
I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because I know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake, a smile, a laugh
Every day of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with
Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust
Not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid
I watched you die
I heard you cry
Every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry
In the middle of the night
For the same damn thing
Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side
So I don't get hurt
Because of you
I tried my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid
Because of you
Because of you

How can i let someone else's problems get a hold of me like they have done right now.

Tonight Rich, Lou and I played Ring Of Fire (my fav game of Swanland fame) which basically ended in disaster (it's supposed to end in Stu making a foul of himself and us shaving his head )- remember?

But tonight bascially all our problems came to the surface - oh u know what im too drunk to write this right now , ill tell u in the morn!
