me and carl made panna cotta on sunday semi according to this recipe, except we made if for two and made strawberry compote (chopped strawberries and heated in a pan with some sugar and a bit of water until mush.)

though to be honest, i did most of the work. carl did some stirring and drained the gelatine.

we win at foodie. <3

in other news from last weekend:

we found a weave in the car park outside the trashy nightclubs in maidstone. class.

the best shaped dress ever i found at h&m but didn't buy cos i'm poor. i remember it being more amazing though. hello hour glass.

in other news right now: not much. carl went home last night and i had to watch the apprentice on my own. oh noes, not rafe. sigh. and it's official: i need two duvets hung over the curtains to not be woken up stupid early by the sun (i hate you)

& i also have new shoes. fifteen english pounds i propably didn't really have to spread around like that. but they were on the sale, and i'd been eyeing them up since they first appeared on a shelf at the new look in the pentagon. i love them lots, with their sensible heels i think i can actually walk in without looking like an akward giraffe. i haven't test driven them outside yet (i bought them yesterday) because i keep thinking 'what if i realise i can't afford them and must return them' because obviously they don't take shoes that have been worn outdoors back. i'm such a dimwit sometimes. but i feel guilty for the shoes. though i guess at least they are not an impulse buy. but they so pretty. i've got similar brown ones from primark hiding somewhere that i bought ages on a semi whim and can't walk in them (yet) because they have the standard proper high heel.


the weather's lovely and warm (i don't really want it much warmer though, as i like wearing clothes) but sadly it means the crackheads etc have gone mental and i've got a load of them next door. i spoke to the old lady from upstairs and she was telling me all sorts of stuff that i won't repeat because it's not reaally that interesting. but i've decided i should complain to the housing officer too, maybe something will be done then (enough people moaning, not because i moaned..) but then again, i'm still not entirely sure what the hell is going on. all i know there's people coming in and out all times of the day who obviously do not live there. and shouting. i don't really mind _that much_, but out of solidarity i guess.

i haven't had post for weeks on end, seems like months (but then again the zine symposium feels like a month away at least and i think it's only been 2 weeks now) other than some uninteresting ones from my landlord saying someone's coming to fix the shed (wahey) but today i got a letter from the council (more housing benefit! win!) and a lovely letter from [ profile] photogirl which i have in my bag to read while walking since i finished my book this morning ("girl interrupted" by susanne kaysen. really liked it) and my headphones are still broken and i haven't bought new ones. i could go to argos today but i've decided that i'm not buying ANYTHING until i've run out of food and the fridge is stupidly full. i hope my bean and lentil loaf is still ok...(somehow i doubt it a bit.)

carl went home yesterday and he's not back until sometime sunday. oh well, maybe i'll get some things done. work on your pretty face #4 (i already have things, they just need to be typed up / written down prettily / be found...)

one more thing: when i was walking to the library, a man drove past me in a car and took a swig out of a large bottle that i'm 99.9% sure was whisky or other whisky coloured alcoholic beverage. isn't that just brilliant? i can't decide whether to laugh or cry about that. oh medway. ilu.

i'm off then. i've still got that reasonable pile of zines to assemble and staple that i've had since the monday after zine symposium, i just haven't had the something to actually make them, until now (i hope)

julie drove me and carl to ikea and bought lots of stuff. )

and afterwards i had a big fat spaff because i thought i'd gone into minus. but i checked my balance both last night (i couldn't believe my eyes) and this morning and i'd been a massive spanner and thought i'd had £100 in my account instead of £200. oops. which makes me a bit gutted cos i had left a few lovely things i quite wanted because of my fear of the bank balance of doom. in particular, this lamp:

i also now that i've put most of the plastic tubs into use that i should have bought more of them. another two packets perhaps, as there's only one big one and couple of time ones left empty. and the brown paper boxes. i put all my tights in one and pants and socks in another. and drew what's what on the lid. and i've realised that bygel the cutlery drainer is a bit crap and of bad design, and i had to wrap it in cling film to keep the cutlery from slipping out of the drainer.

we lumbered all the stuff in the back of the car and went back in and had a wee fika. free tea and coffee with my ikea family card and i got me a good old nordic cinnamon roll that was a bit stale but AMAZING. man, i miss cinnamon buns. i need to bake some korvapuusti soon, hopefully this time it won't go as rubbish as last time. i even had my free re-fill, julie was too slow with her tea and carl's had flared his toothache to the max. me and carl forgot our brilliant sandwiches in the car after unloading all the things in the flat and carl's drugs and the bottle of water. and i didn't even have any of the bacon baguettes. which made me rather sad last night when i still thought i was skint to the max.

today i got up early with carl and went out to check the pennies and talk to mhs about the bad stuff and came back and sorted out my kitchen cupboards while listening to harry potter and the half blood prince.

- - - i'm obviously at carl's. his mum's making flans with jelly toppings and we've been playing resident evil - the umbrella chronicles on the wii. me and carl have already basicly finished it in two player (there's some missions with only one player option available left) in easy. and we only played for three hours last night and one today. and died once yesterday and once today. wtf. then again, on easy. calr's playing with clive now to get a better grade.

blah blah blah. and i uploaded some old old photos on my flickr that everyone's already seen on knifecrime...

kasper bought a lovely hoodie from the local emo/goth child shop that makes me lol a bit. apparently he's not sure half the time whether he's being sincere or ironic.

the christmas tree with lights and a real star. and my mama's presents.

+ unknown amount. )

rocking around the christmas tree.. )

i bought a christmas tree the other day and after having some soup to cure our ills we assembled it and decorated it. it's still missing fairy lights, but im sure i'll find some in the poundshop. (all the ones in tesco had a ridiculous amount of lights for a wee 4ft tree.)

as you may have noticed, i've unlocked the pandora's box this journal. from now on. not that anything exciting ever happens, or i ever make entries. too busy and internetless these days.

in real life news, the council are mean fuckwits and have made me go £100 or so in rent arrears thanks to a reduction in my housing benefit wahey. but luckily mhs homes are very nice and understanding and beautiful people and i can pay bit my bit. and i'm being dragged to a dinner out tonight by photomeat so i can pay everyone what i owe. i'm going, but only to pay my dues, then i'm fucking off home. i don't think the restaurant would like me just sitting there ordering nothing. that lady at the chinese place back home was displeased enough by my order of spring rolls and rice.. also, i won't have time to make food before hand, do i really want to sit there and watch everyone scoff up lovely thai yum yums? hell no. shame, really. i was going to get everyone wee christmas presents but i haven't had the chance and don't seem to have the cash either now. boo.

anyway, should go and update carl on my visit to the very nice benefits adviser and then go home home home to change change change. oh and get some money out on my way..
