|It's all go here
|Thanks my little possums for the cheering up techniques. There's nothing like a bit of Graeme Smut to make you feel a bit better.
Tomorrow my wee brother is moving out and up to university *sniff sniff etc* And on Friday I'm moving away to France. My big brother started a new job this week. I've been wondering today how my parents are feeling. Like, we're all growing up and getting on in the world - surely it must affect how they view their own lives. It's going to be just them in the house for the first time in twenty two years. I keep thinking about how it's going to take me a while to adjust or how it'll take Graeme and Cammy a while to adjust, but I never really thought about my mum and dad until tonight. My dad gave me a lovely card today and he'd written in it ''Keep in touch''. As if I'd been thinking of not keeping in touch! It's insane. Did he really think that unless he reminded me, I'd forget to write to him or something? I hope they cope by themselves alright. They might have to take up a hobby or something...
We went out for dinner tonight: me, mum, dad and Graeme to the restaurant where my wee brother works. They poisoned my profiterols. I kid you not. Well, alright, the cream was off, but I've never tasted anything as unbelievably skanky in my entire life. It must have been months and months out of date at least. You just can't get the service these days. And they didn't have any Magners. I'm not complaining - it was a nice wee meal and the place was quite quiet so Cammy came and sat with us for a bit. We've been going out a lot more this summer and it's weird to think that we won't be doing it again for a while. Mum says she wants to spend Christmas this year working in a soup kitchen or something equally as charitable and helpful and unlike her. (Kidding mum. Honest.) I actually think it's a really good idea and I'm quite tempted. I get really really really into the whole Christmas Spirit thing at that time of year - it'd be quite nice to spread the love.
So I've spent this week really whoring myself about (not literally, you understand) seeing people before I go. I went shopping with my best mate the other day (like I should be buying any more clothes - my suitcase is full. Although I found that H&M had a whole section dedicated to V-neck jumpers in all different colours and patterns. I LOVE V-necks so I was like a kid in a sweet shop. I tried on nine different ones, but only bought two. (how restrained am I??) They look so incredibly retro and awesome, how could I not?) (I shouldn't be allowed out sometimes.)
I also said bye to the lad that I mentioned before that I quite like. I'm not keen on how weird and sort of insecure and young (?) that I get when I talk/think about him. Damn these men, making me feel things! We've got each other's emails and he added me to MSN so we'll keep in touch. Moving swiftly onwards...
David Mitchell and Robert Webb's new series started tonight. I thought it was awesome, but then again, I think anything those two do is perfect, so I'm biased. It wasn't as good as Peep Show, but then again, it's a whole different format to Peep Show, so it's a bit unfair to make that comparison. Although, I can't understand why watching a 33 year old man wearing a banana costume, doing a manic dance and eating a banana is so funny. It helps a lot, I suppose, that he looks an awful lot like Graeme circa Broaden Your Mind.
The quote of the day today has got to be from tonight's Hamish and Dougal:
''And in the meantime, I'll rub my legs together and start a fire.''
I'm sure you will, Graeme.
