Hmm emma, i'd like to satisfy your want of gossip but unfortunately there isn't any. Here is what everyone has been up to:

Steve foster: Working on biochemistery ALL THE TIME and eating morrisons pizzas.
Steve Reid: Playing turok (almost completed) and mariokart (holding records on bowser's castle). Spending days on the couch. I just left him at the dry dock where he is celebrating riazz birthday by wearing a guinness hat and 'dancing' to chesney hawks (good to see him on form again). He has also got a job stewarding at the same company as me (god help the punters, we'll kill them all)
Me: I'm in a goth/metal band called trial by terror. Reading a lot of Lawrence (His love was like a fox, a fox of fire in the snow, the snow aflame with fire, fire and snow in the fox fox and snow aflame) Realising I need a 78 average to get a first this term. Ouch!
Lou: being steve's girlfried, going a little mad occasionally, doing incredibly well at english (76, 76 and 66 exam results)
Naomi: Watching foreign films. Being a cultural studies student.

The house has fragmented a bit. There is tension between lou and naomi. Naomi is living with her boyfriend will next year, steve and lou are living together, stevie is probably going to malaysia and I am living with a bunch of peple i just met in the dry dock (possibly). E mail us about your frenchiness.

I was going to request a song I've been listening to a lot recently in the club I'm going to tonight. Unfortunately i think it might be in bad taste now...

Spanish Bombs
(Strummer/Jones)

Spanish songs in Andalucia
The shooting sites in the days of '39
Oh, please, leave the vendanna open
Fredrico Lorca is dead and gone
Bullet holes in the cemetery walls
The black cars of the Guardia Civil
Spanish bombs on the Costa Rica
I'm flying in a DC 10 tonight

CHORUS
Spanish bombs, yo te quiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh mi corazón
Spanish bombs, yo te quiero y finito
Yo te querda, oh mi corazón

Spanish weeks in my disco casino
The freedom fighters died upon the hill
They sang the red flag
They wore the black one
But after they died it was Mockingbird Hill
Back home the buses went up in flashes
The Irish tomb was drenched in blood
Spanish bombs shatter the hotels
My señorita's rose was nipped in the bud

CHORUS

The hillsides ring with "Free the people"
Or can I hear the echo from the days of '39?
With trenches full of poets
The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the other line
Spanish bombs rock the province
I'm hearing music from another time
Spanish bombs on the Costa Brava
I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight
Spanish songs in Andalucia, Mandolina, oh mi corazón
Spanish songs in Granada, oh mi corazón

Back in black

This term I just don't seem to be able to keep my blog up to date. I suppose it's partly because I'm just trundling along at uni with nothing particularily special going on and partly cos I'm just too lazy. Anyway, here is what I'm doing at the moment:

1 Looking for money/jobs/- I have hit the limit of my overdraft and the bank will not expand it, thus rendering me with only nine pounds to my name. I am hoping to start a human guinea pig trial soon to get some cash.

2 Playing mariokart- Far too much mariokart. Blue shell blue shell!

3 Refusing to acknowledge that I'm going to graduate soon- I don't need to look for a house/job, right? It'll sort itself out, won't it?

4 Failing to write songs

5 Eating nutella

6 Being single

7 Looking forward to Morrissey/British sea power gigs.

Anyway, hello to Emma, hope france is good and that you haven't got married or anything without telling me. What are your plans for next year? The flat seems to be fragmenting at the moment so fuck knows where anyone is living. I may go back to liverpool after graduating, it's all up in the air at the moment.
