Rockin' Out

Hey all :)  If you like Queen and wanna listen to their music click this link and listen to this radio station it is soooooooooooo cool :)  They keep playing a mixture of album stuff with rare stuff.  Right now their playing Ride The Wild Wind from the Innuendo album - I shouldn't be listening to it on a Sunday night when I should be chilling but who cares??  I'm rockin'!!  Yeah woohoo *starts headbanging* LOL ;)

Have you all had a good weekend?  Mines been kinda weird.  Let's take you back to Friday.  The accounts were due to arrive and because of some error they didn't arrive until after lunch.  I ended up doing about 2 hrs ECDL and didn't mark the time down *tut tut* like I was supposed to but P said to do it and not to mark it down coz there was nothing else to do!!  Plus I'm not gonna get a chance (arrrrrrrrrrhhhhhh roger!!  Sorry I may go off on tangents like that bear with me ;)  over the next few weeks with the accounts to do!!  We had a laugh in the morning listening to this blokes excuses as to why it went wrong.   The best was the print room had a problem with it's computers and nothing was printing.  Complete lie, when P rung them to find out how it was going she heard printers in the background.  Anyway we eventually received them!!  P's on holiday this week so it's just me and team leader, with K Mon and Tues.  I did panic on Friday night coz I had a sore throat.  It turned into nothing though *touch wood*  :)

Saturday - I didn't plan to do anything this weekend but oh my dear lord what a day that turned out to be.  Decided to have brekkie in bed and read some of my book :)  Got up just before 10am.  Washed up, cleaned kitchen, put in laundry, hoovered kitchen, hoovered living room, tidied living room, (Las Palabras De Amour now - love this song :), hoovered hallway, bleached loo, cleaned bathroom which meant going down on hands and knees to clean the floor, hoovered bathroom, hoovered bedroom and tidied it up.  Walked to the range, went in Matalan brought new jogging trousers, walked to spar shop and got more electric.  Walked home, had dinner, walked round to sainsbugs got shopping, walked home.  Decided I wanted to get the notice board I'd seen in Woolies, and as the range and staples didn't have one, went up town to get it!!  *phew*  I deserved to sit down when I got back!!

So no surprises for guessing I have done absolutely nothing today and I mean that literally!!  Woke up, had brekkie in bed again, got up had a shower, then sat in front of tv for most of the day.  Tried to sort out my printer and as it didn't wanna talk to me first I dropped it and then I kicked it!!  LOL...............Regulars will remember that I just showed it the screwdriver last time, well that's not (aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.......roger!!  I've got the pressure on), working this time :(  Think I may have to invest in a new one but where am I gonna get the money from??!!  I have uninstalled and reinstalled before you ask LOL..........

Thought it was time to change the pics in my large multi frame too!!  Ordered some photos from last year and will update that when they arrive :)  The only fresh air I've had today was taking my bin bag to the communal bin thingy!!

Next weekend I'm off to Trina's woohoo, which also means chippy tea on Friday :)  Jen's lookin' forward to that!!  I've suggested that if the weather's all right we should go to Paignton Zoo, I wanna offer my support with regards to them losing the giraffe's and I haven't been for ages!!  It's also something that Wayne can join in with - bless him :)

Well I shall leave you all here!!  Sorry to go off on my tangents but it's funny don't you think?? Oh for those asking I shan't tell you whereabouts in Cornwall we're going - I'll let you know once we've been ;)  (more roger - jenny's a very happy bunny now!! :)

Take care everyone xx

Best wishes

Gettin' on me nerves

hello everyone!  Blinkin' cold ain't it?

I don't have much to say again *surprise surprise* Work is still boring but we get the accounts tomorrow so no doubt it'll be panic stations.  I have got some typing done that I should be doing at home but at least I'm looking busy ;-)

Isn't it funny sometimes how when some people are talking it doesn't matter to you but other times it can really get on your nerves?  I get like that at work sometimes.  It's like the other team are pretty much all football mad and it gets on my nerves when they go on about it so much.  I mean do they really have so much to talk about on one subject?  I suppose I would do the same if someone got me talking about Queen but who knows?!!

So did any of you watch that new programme just the two of us?  Not me - I like to have the Bill on in the background sometimes.  Mind you the ads get on me nerves LOL..........(Just changed the subject title seems I keep going on about me nerves!!)  Talkin' of progs Footballers Wives is back tonight but it clashes with Hotel Babylon.  I sent a text to Trina to ask her to video one and to let me know which one so I can watch the other.  I sent it at 5pm and about 8.30pm she sent a reply.  I asked her where she had been thinking she was somewhere that couldn't get a signal but she's been home - damn networks!!

I'm still listening to obscure tapes on my walkman at the mo!  When I say obscure I mean ones I haven't listened to for a while.  Yesterday it was the We Will Rock You cast album and I was thinking about the woman who used to play Killer Queen, I can't imagine it when I watch Holby City.  It's strange when you see someone in a different role.  I mean there are some people out there that will always be that person doesn't matter what they do, but some aren't!!  Strange huh?

Told you there wasn't anything I want to talk about lol.......Looks like my friends and I have finally come up with a date to go to Cornwall for a weekend :-)  Sometime in July should hopefully be nice and warm at the time!!

I take it alerts are still playing up - either that or a lot of people are taking a break from j-land.  My in box seems to be very emptywhich is a pleasure I must admit but also feel like I'm missing out on something.

Anyway I'm not gonna go on anymore as I'm gonna turn the computer off and watch some tv :-)

Take care & best wishes to you all xx

Brain not functioning!!

Evenin' all :-)

Not a lot to say so another rambling message coming up!!

Work has not gone well for the past two days.  Not having a lot to do takes it toll and you sit there wishing you were somewhere else.  Plus on Monday my faults were being picked up again!!  I thought we'd moved on from that stage, there is only so many times you can apologise for the same thing isn't there?!!

Home has not been that much better.  Well I suppose that's a lie but I'm really talking about the creative side again!!  Nothing happening and I don't know what to do.  I need to think, perhaps either tomorrow or Thursday at work will give me some ideas LOL........

Oooo one thing to mention, I've finally booked my first ECDL exam.  17th March arrrrrggggghhhhhh!!  I'm starting to try and work hard towards it and may have to do some at home!!  Not that i want to................but if the creative juices aren't flowing I have to fill my time somehow don't I??

I got sent the following link by email and wanted to share it with you all.  I took part and I have to say it's very interesting reading........  You enter your birthdate and it gives you a description as to the sort of person you are!!  I know you get these a lot but it is good trust me :-)

I really am rambling aren't I?  Sorry if I'm not making sense!!

Trina's still going through her bad patch.  What can I do to help her if she won't call me when she's going through it??  There must be something I can do to cheer her up..............*think think*

I'm also trying to think of a question for Paul Rodgers - best one gets to win a prize ;-)  Perhaps I should use the same one I used for Roger least that one got printed.

Well I don't know what else to say.............until next time!!

Take care & Best wishes xx

Feel Lazy

Hi everyone - hope your all ok?!  So apparently that last entry did one of those wireless device annoying!!  Oh well let's see what happens with this one!!

How's your weekend going?  Friday I met up with Mum and Meggy.  We walked around town and I spent a bit of money.  Unfortunately I couldn't get that book I wanted (grrrr...) but have ordered it online!  Didn't buy anything that's worth a mention here!!  Mum showed me her new camera phone mobile.  I was taking loadsa pics with it and saving them as her wallpaper LOL....... First there was one of me :-)  then I thought she needed some Queen on there and took the pic of me and roger, she liked that LOL.......and lastly a pic of Meggy and me :-)

Luckily we managed to avoid the rain all day and it started just as mum was getting on the bus!!  Didn't do much during the evening.  Freaked out coz Paddy was on 8 out of 10 cats.  He seemed a bit quiet but he was still quite a laugh!!  I like that programme but I'm not a big fan of Jimmy Carr, he's annoying!!

Saturday I didn't get up too early and when I did I managed to hoover before I had to go out.  I'd arranged for Trina and Wayne to pick me up with my food shopping as Trina was coming round here for the afternoon.  She was due around 2ish but Wayne got one of his headaches at around 1ish so they were delayed.  I got annoyed coz I was bored having to wait around.  Bless him though, he couldn't help it!!  As I had just turned the computer off and didn't wanna listen to the local radio I read my book,  which I've managed to finish this weekend :-)  It was a good read!!  Eventually got the call that they were on their way and so I ambled round to sainsbugs.  As I have to live on a budget I try not to buy too much food shopping but as they were helping me with the heavy stuff I went over budget by £5.  LOL

We had a good afternoon, general silliness as there usually is with the two of us!!  We watched some Queen, supernanny, and dancing on ice.  Ouch at Pam :-(  Poor David Seaman he must've felt quite guilty!!   I don't think it was fair to give bonnie the feather boa.  Already being a dancer she should've got the chair.....that sounds funny........!!

The rest of the evening I caught up on journals and browsed the web.  Today has been a general abyss of nothingness and I can't motivate myself to do anything creative.  :-(  I have started my new book and had a shower but that's about it!!  Oh I think I've eaten too much as well!!  Nothing new there then lol........I'm just annoyed that I can't get into anything creative wise!!  hey-ho!!  I just hope the rest of the week won't be like this!!  I know it will be at work but not home too please...................

Just in case your interested I've started a book that I borrowed from mum, Martina Cole's Broken.  First of hers that I've ever read!!  Mum seems to be a bit of a fan of hers.  She carries a list of the ones she's read and has etc......

Invasion's on tonight - last week's episode was a bit cryptic and I think it's gonna get worse this

Sad news - I heard yesterday that the other giraffe that was caught up in the fire last week has also died :-(  Isn't that sad?  I think that means there is no giraffe's now at Paignton Zoo!! :-(

Well I'm not sure what else to say........speak to you all again soon.  have a good week :-)

Take care, best wishes

Got that Friday Feelin'

Evenin' all - how are you?

Bet your confused with the title huh?  ;-)  I made up a song to go with it but I shan't sing it you know how bad my singing voice is!  Well I have Friday off work so tomorrow is my Friday LOL........It's such a nice feeling - don't get it very often so I'm making the most of it now!  Not doing much on Friday - gonna meet up with Mum and Sis who I haven't seen since xmas so that'll be cool.  I've just found out there is a new Queen book out there for £4.99 with a superb pic of Rog in it so I reckon that'll be my purchase for the day if I can find it :-)  Oh and the £1 teapot in the poundland!!  I figure if I get a teapot I won't waste so much electric boiling the kettle ;-)  smart thinking huh??  *pause for roger's drum solo on the real player - big grin*  Don't worry I wasn't tapping away at my keyboard in time!!  LOL

Aaaahhhhhhh that's better - the man is a genius!!  So did you have a good valentines day?  It certainly reads like you all did.  I found out my bank loves me!!  That was all I received yesterday :-(  Still never mind, there's always next year ;-)

Had a good afternoon at work, although starting to get the impression the other team don't like it when we moan and whinge about what they had done with the cases before we took them over.  Ah, who cares!!  I don't!!  At the end of the day all that matters is the work being done and it has been.  We're pretty much up to date again and the next lot of accounts don't get printed till next Friday.  Expect a week of entries saying I'm bored ;-)  well at least you can't say I didn't warn you.

I've just realised it's the brits tonight isn't it? I can't understand why they host the awards tonight and show them on Tv tomorrow when you already know whose won coz it's all over the TV/Newspapers/Radio all day.  I'm not sure I'll be watching, don't really care who wins that's for sure LOL

Have stopped watching the figure skating - got a bit bored with it to be honest.

Tonight I came home with shopping and got off the bus a stop earlier, thinking I won't do any exercises tonight.  When I got in the door, I had a package.  It was one of the new exercise vids that I've ordered off ebay.  So I had to have a go didn't I??  Grrrrr.....LOL.......certainly not an easy one but it may install some new enthusiasm if I don't know the routines!  I'm into the dance ones coz I figure just exercising is boring!!  I'm getting better that's for sure ;-)

I think I'm using too many smiley faces in this entry lol

Trina's been feeling down lately and she was off sick last week.  She went back today and just as I suspected they had a go at her for something that is not her fault.  I talked to her last night about work and it sounds (oooo bad company - I don't think that's paul singing though) like she's having a rough time.  Don't think I helped though coz one minute I'm saying leave, then the next I'm like stay and sod them LOL........She's coming round on Saturday hopefully so I shall have to think of something to cheer her up...mmmmmm...........tough one!!

I'm back to being moderator again on the board I go to!!  I gave it up in January coz I figured I need more time to spend on my creative self.  Although I am doing this, I don't seem to be neglecting the board coz I feel I'll miss something if I don't post.  Plus it's got really busy lately.  I logged on earlier and someone's registered as Jennifer.  Damn them we can't have two Jenny's on that board.  I hate it when that happens.  There's two of us at work so I get known as Jennifer.  I only use that name for potential employers and that's about it!!  I'm not a Jennifer, Jenny or Jen yes!!  Jennifer is also connected to mum shouting at me when I was younger LOL...........

Well I reckon I've drivelled on enough.  For those of you who were asking my neck is a lot better thanks.

Till next time.

Take care & Best wishes xx

P.s I'm still getting the wireless device thingys so please don't think I'm neglecting you people I shall try and catch up on those journals that I've missed soon ;-)

More Inane Chatter

Hi everyone - welcome to another week.  Hope you all had a good weekend :-)

I figured it was time for some more inane chatter from me.  Let's see what I can go on about tonight. LOL.......I've currently got the TV on as I was hoping to watch some of the figure skating at the Olympics.  I'm starting to get into skating what with that programme on Saturday nights.  I only started to watch it last week and I found it very good, wish I had watched from the beginning but oh no, I figured it would just be another pain in the behind reality programme.  (Talking of them have you seen an ad for the new one on BBC??  What a load of rubbish!!)  still i missed out didn't I??

I've had an okay weekend.  I went up to the range yesterday in the attempt to get some stuff I need for the flat but everything I saw I came up with some excuse or reason not to get it.  In the end I walked out with a can of coke, some chocolate and some strips that mark the page in your book.  I give up on myself when it comes to spending money.  My ex grilled it into me that we never needed a book or a video coz we had tons at home that we can read and watch I've got that in my head everytime I go and buy something.  Also I owe quite a bit of money to Trina so I have that stopping me too.  I wish I could just win the lottery and pay her back.  Got two numbers on Saturday LOL...........

Also on Saturday I decided that as I was flipping the mattress and changing the duvet cover I would move my bed round.  It does look a lot better where it is now but it wasn't half strange sleeping the other way round, I didn't get to sleep till half two on Saturday.

Good lord are you listening to the rules of the skating?  I think I've given up LOL........

I watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding - is it me or was it rubbish?  There was just no real plot or anywhere for it to go!!  Boring............

So far as I know the water is all okay now, for those who are interested but unfortunately there was some sad news this morning.  Apparently there was a fire last night at Paignton Zoo's Elephant and Giraffe house.  One of the giraffes and her baby both died in the fire :-(  Apparently the baby was only a few weeks old.  I've been to that particular house as I had wanted to see the elephants and my ex took a fab pic of one of the giraffes then!!  It's such sad news though!!

Work was okay today, busy but didn't really achieve much.  We had a team meeting, then the boss wanted to see each individual team seperately.  So that lasted most of the morning.  Roll on Friday is what I say........yep you've guessed it I have a day off :-)

Wish I could ice skate LOL.........I reckon if I had a go I'd probably fall over!!

So what else is there to go on about??  Did anybody watch The Virgin Queen?  That was very good wasn't it!!

Well I have no idea what else to drone on about.  I'm sure there was more but I really can't think of it............

Till next time.  I hope you receive a lot of Valentines cards, I know I won't ;-)  This is the one I wish to send:  lol

Take care everyone xx

Not much to say

Hi everyone :-)  Hope your all ok!! Wow lots of comments on the last entry - guess the alert went out on that one LOL............Thank you very much for the comments as usual!!

I don't really have anything to say but I thought I'd do an entry anyway so I warn you now it may be boring!  My neck is slightly better.  @ Mark - my team leader has something similiar (the heat pack thingy) and we joked that if it hurt too much I would have to go to hers and try it out LOL........She said she would lend it to me but I don't have a microwave!!  I am due to get one though Yay!!

Work is going along slowly - is it not Friday yet?? Only a couple of hours to go LOL........not sure what I'm gonna do at the weekend.  Think I might venture into town and visit Iceland and see what offers they have at the mo!!  Usually I go to sainsbugs for my shopping but fancy a change this week.  (I did warn you I don't have anything to say LOL)

Last night I watched 2 fast 2 furious and realised about halfway through the film that I haven't seen the first one.  It was alright I suppose!!

It's cold tonight huh?  I only have the one heater on though!  My lights keep flickering so I've got the candle and lighter out in case they go and flip the electric switch thingy like they have in the past.  Usually it's in the morning but I need to be prepared for the evening!!  Haven't had to change a light bulb for ages.

I'm still managing to stay away from coughs, colds etc at the moment.  Perhaps it's because apart from work I've not really been venturing out into germ riddled places - who knows!!  I'm certainly very lucky *touch wood* ;-)

One of the girls at work has been offered another job that she had an interview for yesterday.  I got the jobs paper last night and there were a couple of interesting ones in there.  One working for the police force which looked interesting so I might look into that!!  There was also one for the water company but it's not showing on their website grrrrrrr.......

Oooooo talking about the water it was contaminated with diesel, don't ask me how I haven't worked that one out.  Apparently they've given the all clear today but it'll still smell like diesel - thank goodness I missed out on that one!  Talking of news items down this area, a statue of some famous history blokie was errected in his birth town today.  Apparently it was funded by some tobacco company and people are up in arms about that.  When they interviewed the locals they were like 'so......who cares?' What a good attitude they have :-)

Well I reckon I've bored you enough............

just before I go here's another picture of the older one I found on the devon records website.

Apparently that's in the city somewhere but I can't picture it - it clearly doesn't look like that anymore LOL.

Well take care everyone.

Best wishes

p.s I forgot to mention my counter - it's been banished I cannot be bothered with it.  when I logged in earlier it was showing that 3 people had read my journal since 2004!!  Grrrrrrrrr.............

In Pain

Evenin' everyone - are you out there??  I see these alerts are still messing us around *rolls eyes* I shan't moan on about them.

I wasn't gonna do an entry tonight but thought I would just moan about how I'm in pain.  I think it must be the way I'm sleeping coz my neck hurts.  Monday it was the left side of my neck and today it was the right side and it still hurts.  When I sat up in bed this morning, I couldn't lie back down.  I'm not looking forward to going to bed this evening, but I've given up some of my pillows so hopefully that will work :-)

Trina did some research for me about the job with the Records office and this is the response she got...........

 Thank you for your email.
If your friend is interested in becoming an archivist, she will need a good first degree and a postgraduate diploma or MA in archive adminsitration. We do not have any jobs which are purely administration. We have two clerical officers/receptionists, four archives assistants, six archivists, one research archivist and a research assistant and three conservators. All these jobs need qualifications and/or experience. I suggest that your friend gets in touch with us herself so that we can arrange a date for her to visit and discuss her career options.

So there you go!!  I looked into this and the only place that does that particular course is a uni in Wales.  To get onto the course you have to have a degree - I think this is yet another pipe dream gone out the window. LOL

Today was J's birthday at work, he's 30.  Oh my god what a fuss!!  balloons, banners etc.  Then the main boss gave him his pressie in a presentation stylee..  I said to M & P that I do not want that for my 30th and they agreed quite happily.  We'll just go for a drink at lunchtime - providing I'm still there of course LOL.......Who knows what could happen in a year and a bit!!

The only major news here is that some of the city is without water.  They are having to get it from central places.  It's been contaminated since Sunday night.  Apparently they are all gonna get around £10 each - whoopee, £10 isn't gonna go far in today's economy is it??  Luckily I'm ok with my water!!

Well I shall leave you here!!  Sorry if I'm moaning too much on my journal lately - it certainly feels like I am.  To make up for it I shall share a picture of my area that I found on the BBC site earlier..............

ugh valentines day - sorry the radio just mentioned it!!

Well take care everyone...........I shall try and be more positive in my next entry I promise!!  ;-)

Best wishes

Queenonline meetup

Hi Everyone - thought it was about time to share with you what happened on the Queen Online meetup back in November :-)  Enjoy reading!!

Trina and I met around 9.30am (ish) in town to get a bacon sarnie before heading down to the train station. We had a good ol natter and headed down to the station. We were meeting friends on the train and agreed to save a table seat for us all. We did have seats booked but we’d all booked them at separate times so wouldn’t have been sat together. I was panicking because I didn’t think we would be able to save a table seat for that long. Luckily we did and Fairy joined us okay as we’d been waving at her through the window LOL…. The journey went pretty smoothly after that, we all had a good laugh and a natter. After a trip to the buffet car Sarah pulled out her small bottle of vodka and added bits to the tango they had bought. Not one for drinking I asked if I could have some and Trina was a bit shocked, but she joined in. Soon we were getting louder and you have to feel sorry for the rest of the carriage. Luckily we weren’t singing though lol……

Sometime around lunchtime we pulled into Paddington and met Gavin. It was so nice to see these people again. We all went down to the tube station and headed towards Tottenham Court Road, as we were meeting everyone else at the St Giles, which is just around the corner from the Dominion.

When we got there, there was only a small amount of people waiting, Someone got a round of drinks and more vodka was consumed. It was only 2pm and we didn’t have to be at the Dominion until just before 7.30pm. As the afternoon wore on, more drinks were consumed, more people turned up, silliness ensued and a good time was generally had by all. We got to meet lots of people from the online community; it was great to put names to faces finally!!

At some point food was mentioned. We had all been drinking rather a large amount of alcohol and most of us hadn’t eaten since breakfast so Fairy and Funster suggested we get "cheesy" chips. In the end we got 4 bowls shared between about 8 of us, These chips are the most heavenly things I have ever had and said to Trina that if we ever go back to London we have to go for more!!! A big bowl of chips is delivered with cheese on top and bacon bits all sprinkled around - as I said before heaven!! Go taste them for yourself they come highly recommended!! I think I’d managed to have at least, seven, lemonade and vodka’s at St Giles and this doesn’t include the ones on the train. By the time we were due to walk round to We Will Rock You I had a banging headache and at some point I did stop drinking in the hopes it would go away.

We will rock you is a fantastic show, Trina and I have been to see it at least 4/5 times before this one. Never have we been and sat in amongst friends, fellow die hard Queen fans. To say we had fun was a bit of an understatement. We were dancing in the aisles and generally having a good time. (We will rock you online however will tell you that we were rude, loud and ruined it for everyone else in the theatre. This is coming from someone who’s been to see it 35 times!!! My response to that person GET A LIFE!!! Jeez if I’d been to see it that many times I probably would’ve been sat there just trying to enjoy it for a show, not dancing around like I was. Considering the amount of money that is spent for Trina and I to get there and see it, it’s not surprising we are going to enjoy ourselves regardless of what people think grrrrr sorry to go about it!!!) So far as we were concerned the cast were enjoying the fact they were getting a response from us and more often than not came to our side of the stage and were smiling, etc. It’s the first show we’d seen with the latest cast change. I thought everyone did well, but Trina thought differently, but we won’t go into that LOL…… At the end when the cast and the band come to the front of the stage for bows etc, we all noticed Spike Edney was there. Personally I didn’t think he would be as he’d been playing keyboards for the band on the latest tour. Chants of ‘Spikey is a legend’ ensued and his face was a picture lol… he looked so confused as if to say what is going on?? Bless him.

After the show finished and on a high we all piled back to St Giles for more drinking and merriment!! Alessia, Jamie, Sarah, Gavin, Fairy, Funster, Cat , Matt and Andy (the usual gang from the tour), were reunited and it was a great feeling. We also met new people, Qnick (excuse me for using sign on names!!), Charlie, Sam, Andy (aka Vivid), Gordie and his girlfirend, Parky (although we did meet him briefly in Cardiff), Loretta, Fairdandy, Holly, Terry, Maggie Bob and many more!! Vern had been there earlier and it was nice to chat to him. He and Jules had been to shows in Japan and he told me of the nightmares they had faced and also the joys at extra songs being played etc… It was a shame Jules hadn’t made it but hopefully we shall meet up with her again at some point.

The hot topic of conversation at the meet up was of course the American shows and whether we should go or not. At one point Sarah and Gavin were outside and it looked like they were having an argument or something. They weren’t coz when they came back inside they declared that they had just bought tickets to see the band in Saettle (I think!!)

Cat had decided to get a room at the hotel. The original plan was that we stay with Jamie at her flat, but Cat would prefer that if she wanted to go to bed she could. She let us kip down in her room, so we dumped our bags in there and continued on with the festivities. More drink, more laughter and Sarah and some of the others sang Take That songs……grrrrr…….(was never a fan of them!!) Cat went to bed fairly early as she had a banging headache but promised to let us in whenever we went up there.

The bar closed at some point and everyone moved up to the lounge. We all took whatever drink we had left and gathered around the seats. Fairy was falling asleep, Gordie had his laptop and was playing music on it. Loretta said that we could now officially call ourselves the QOL elite That’s impressive considering I hardly ever go there and Trina NEVER goes there!! LOL…. I had drunk far too much wine and was feeling sleepy to by about 12/2 ish I can’t remember which one… I headed up to bed.

Trina told me that the party continued on with people drinking, (apparently there was a vending machine that was giving out alcohol), and games were played. She has even videoed people singing Radio Ga Ga rather drunkenly. When she came upstairs she had been followed by Qnick, 18 year old student, who had no money and didn’t have a clue where he was staying. As Trina and I hadn’t booked the room she said she couldn’t let him in, but being the big softie she was, he followed her in and slept on the floor. Trina disappeared not long after she came in and that scared me!!! Apparently she had gone downstairs to use the loo as she didn’t wanna wake us up. Ha I already was awake!!!

Next morning Qnick left fairly early. Trina, Cat and myself got up and out of the hotel by about 11ish. Trinaand I planned to go stalking, but we tried to find somewhere where we could have some brekkie with Cat. Having walked the length of Oxford Street, and not finding anywhere we made our way to the tube. Cat got off at Victoria and went home. Trina and I continued to stalk. After a fairly long walk, we went back to Paddington and met Fairy. Sarah had caught the earlier train in the vain hope she might get to work but that didn’t happen. The rest of us went into a cafĂ© to have something to eat and sat there until we had to catch the train, We were all very tired but a good time was had by all.

There you go - hope you had a good weekend.

Best wishes

Been Tagged!!

Arrrrgggggghhhhhhh I've been tagged by the lovely Debbie!!  Here's my responses...........

1.You can press a button that will make any one person explode. Anyone??!!  Oooooooo my minds gone into overdrive - I'd rather not say here!! LOL..........

2. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. That would have to be all those silly boy bands and girl bands that call themselves bands when all they do is try to sing and dance.......ugh!!

3. Who would you really like to just punch in the face?: If someone won't listen to my point of view and just assume that they are right without listening to the consquences or whatever.......probably someone like that.

4. What is your favorite cheese? Some kind of mild cheddar lol.......

5. You can only have one kind of sandwich. Mmmm......Either ham and coleslaw on white bread or some kind of chicken tikka filling :-)

6. You have the opportunity to sleep with the movie-celebrity of your choice. We are talking no strings attached sex. Who would it be?  Movie celeb??  Well Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones movies is quite nice :-) but I only really have eyes for one celeb and he's the next answer ;-)

7. You have the opportunity to sleep with the music-celebrity of your choice. Who is it? ROGER TAYLOR *getting all hot and bothered just thinking about it - ooo naughty thoughts* ;-)

8. Now that you've slept with two different people in a row, you seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy crap, a hundred bucks! What do you spend it on?: Well I'd have to get an I pod!!  That would take most of it but if there was any left I have no idea!!  Probably food knowing me LOL...........

9. You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you going? I guess my first choice would be Disney land - I really wanna meet Mickey :-)  *that's my inner child talking* or somewhere in the Carribean, or Montreux to see Freddie's statue!

10. Upon arrival to the aforementioned location, you get off the plane and discover another hundred-dollar bill. Now that you are in the new location, where are you gonna go to spend that?: Oh dear lord I don't know!!  Probably spend it on drinks and a nice meal!!  Or maybe some pampering *snigger*

11. An angel appears out of Heaven and offers you a lifetime supply of the alcoholic beverage of your choice. "Be brand-specific", what is it?: I'm not really much of a drinker but I suppose Vodka wouldn't go a miss as long as they provided me with some lemonade or coke to mix it with ;-)

12. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?: Mmm......Go back to Live Aid and watch Queen's fantastic performance or even their gig at Knebworth in 86 and make sure I'm down near the front.  I'm sure there's something else but I can't think of it!!  *whose rufus by the way??*

13. You discover a beautiful island upon which you may build your own society. You make the rules. What is the first rule you put into place?:   Everyone has to listen to Queen music :-) 

14. You have been given the opportunity to create the half-hour TV show of your own design. What is it called and what's the premise?: oo er!!  I think I'd have my own chat show so I could meet all the famous people - It would be called either 'Jenny's hour' or The stars with Jenny' LOL

15. What is your favorite expletive?: I am not telling you here!!

16. One night you wake up because you heard a noise. You turn on the light to find that you are surrounded by MUMMIES. The mummies dont do anything they just stand there what do you do? Apart from freak out I assume you mean ;-)  Well I would probably ask them what the hell they want??!!

17. Your house is on fire, holy shit! You have just enough time to run in there and grab ONE inanimate object. ONE!!  You are joking..........It would have to my pic of me and rog!  I guess it would've been the drumstick but we don't know where that is :-(  Or the EYE game as that is signed by 3 members.

18. You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What's it gonna be?: Invisibilty :-)  I could go and spy on Roger LOL and see when people are talking about me and then freak them out by moving objects.  *what was I doing eating veg LOL*

19. You got kicked out of the country for being a time-traveling heathen who sleeps with celebrities and has super-powers. But check out this cool stuff... you can move to anywhere else in the world!  Well the country just doesn't appreciate me - thanks a lot for your support people LOL........Anywhere well I'll go back to the carribean island then :-)

20. Thisquestion still counts, even for those of you who are under age. Check it out. You have been eternally banned from every single bar in the world except for ONE:  Fair enough but that's not really a question!!  I don't go to bars so having to choose one is ridiculous.  Although I would have to choose........nope can't remember it's name LOL

21. Hopefully you didn't mention this in the super-powers question.... If you did, then we'll just expand on that. Check it out... Suddenly, you have gained the ability to FLOAT!!! Who's house are you going to float to first, and be like "Dude check it out I can float! Trina's LOL Although she doesn't have any water near her house so how I would get there is a bit of a mystery - or do they mean float as in flying?? Ooooooo confused!!

22. The constant absorption of magical moonbeams mixed with the radioactive vegetables you consumed earlier have given you the ability to resurrect the dead person of your choice. Who is it? Freddie or my grandad :-) 

23. What's your theme song? Don't Stop Me Now :-)

Well that's it - I'm supposed to tag three people but I cannot be bothered so if your reading this and you wanna go, do so and I'll come and read it :-)

Have fun peeps............
