Awesome weekend so far

My weekend started a day early on Friday cos I took the day off so that I'd not have to rush like a blue-arsed tit to get to my plans in the evening. Instead of work, I went clothes shopping with E which whilst fun was again as disappointing as previous attempts as I seem to be some kind of mutant. I ignored the fact that jeans came in leg lengths only designed for giants and bought a pair anyway.

The problem this time came with shirts. Now I recognise that I'm not the most slender of beings, but typically I can get away with buying a shirt in a large. Not so this time. Even XL shirts were tight fitting around the torso/chest and given the sleave length was too long I figured going any larger would be a bad plan. E had better luck though and managed to score a nifty looking dress that I think could be best described as a similar style to combat trousers but in dress form.

The reason for this sudden surge in clothes shopping, was I was going clubbing on Friday night and thought I could do with a new outfit. We met up with lucifermourning, satyrica and midnightschilde in London and headed to his house to dump stuff and have a bite to eat.

Had fun dancing my socks off at the club, although it took a while for things to get going. The music in the main room wasn't too great - too much like white noise or guitar wanking. The other room was soft rock/metal so whilst great to listen to, there were only a few tracks I could dance to. And then the DJ in the main room changed and the music vastly improved. So I got to dance lots in the end.

Got back to satyrica's place pretty easily and then crashed out 'til late morning. Had some breakfast, slumped out on the sofa for a while chatting and then we left satyrica to head back in to town to go our seperate ways. I tried doing a bit of shopping in the TCR area, but loads of places are shut/missing. Like there's no Playin' Games any more. And the Virgin megastore is a building site.

Met up for dinner with lucifermourning. We found this charming little italian restaurant with awesome service on Goodge Street. It's called Mondello - check it out if you're in the area. The reason we were in the area was cos there was a Requiem game. It was pretty quiet, but lots of fun. The new ST is certainly shaping up quite nicely. It's a shame more people don't play either of the London games TBH.

Today has been pretty uneventful. I've watched some telly and slobbed around a lot. At some point I'll get started on catching up on the "30 days" posts I've missed out on doing. But first I think I'm going to have some more pancakes :)

day 19 - disrespecting your parents.

I think every thing I am or do fits the title. I'm a big disappoint me to them and I never do what they consider the right thing. Later this month is their anniversary. My mum and sister are going to church and then visiting my dad's grave afterwards before having lunch. Mum wants me to come over on Saturday and stay the night so I can go to church with them. I've declined cos going to church isn't my thing. But that probably means also not visiting his grave either. Not sure if that is my sort of thing either really. But of course I'm sure my doing this is the wrong thing and disrepectful cos I'm not honouring him the way my mum wants me to. Meh.

day 20 - how important you think education is.

I think that it's vitally important that everyone is given the chance to have the best education possible. I don't think what we have right now does that though. I think that classes are too big and that means that not every kid gets the chance to learn at their own pace. Some kids no doubt learn slower than others. They get left behind in classes and that's going to cause them to get frustrated and make it harder for them to learn. And they'll start playing up and being disruptive which'll have a negative impact on their education and their classmates too.

I can't see that this would get fixed any time soon - especially not with all the cuts being planned. It'd need lots more teachers and small classes. New teachers are always going to be hard to get too, cos certainly my memories of being at school is very off putting to the idea of being a teacher. Hopefully there will be some people who are more brave than I am.
