The Chronicles of Quibble
|Sep. 30th, 2005 02:22 pm In Which Louwin Expresses her Feelings with Mildew Screen Cleaner|
Okay dokey, the past couple of weeks have been sort of hard on my family and now everything's getting back to normal in that deathly-dull-daily-routine way.
Mostly all my friends are now in other counties, far away from little broke me and I'm feeling more than just a tad isolated. I'm going to have to get a job soon and actually leave the house or the super-strain of frightening gunk I found hibenating under the shower screen might become my new best friend. I've already had several arguements with it...so far it's winning. Yes, in my permenant at home state I have become house-keeper extrodinaire which is more boring than it has any right to be. I've been scrubbing that damn shower screen for two days and its MOCKING ME!! So yesterday I threw the cleaner at it in a fit of gack?-eurgh!-rage. This backfired spectacularly and ended with me moping the floor whilst trying to control the nashing of my teeth as well as the over-powering smell of bleach.
My little sister just turned 15 on wednesday and this makes me feel uncomfortably old and also itch with the need to buy her a chastity belt before some awful menfolk descend on her. In my head she'll always be 5, which is weird when she borrows my clothes. I'd stop time if that didn't mean I couldn't listen to the radio *sigh*
A couple of weekends ago I went down to visit my friend in Hastings with a lot of other friends from uni so that was lots of fun and we walked a lot, sat around on beaches, had a bbq, saw satan's dog and were cursed by alister crowley. After that i went to visit my old housemate and specialist ever partner in crime, incredible_me. Hung out, watched movies, bummed around and ate out at asda: reliving the student-chic. So actually despite feeling as though life and excitement is passing me by, september hasn't been all bad.
Must go and eat something before my tummy tries to turn in on itself, engulfing my heart and lungs and causing death and a serious crimp in social outings. Paranoia *blinks* it's not pretty folks.

|The Keys to Your Heart|
You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.
You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You'll do anything for love, but you won't fall for it easily.
|You Are 21 Years Old|
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
That's just frightening.
|How You Are In Love|
You take a while to fall in love with someone. Trust takes time.
You tend to give more than take in relationships.
You tend to get very attached when you're with someone. You want to see your love all the time.
You love your partner unconditionally and don't try to make them change.
You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren't loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.
|You Are a Martini|
There's no other way to say it: you're a total lush.
You hold your liquor well, and you hold a lot of it!

Just a quick check-in to give you a link to my other journal, please comment etc: http://www.greatestjournal.com/users/pirate_louwin/
Had another driving lesson today. It's official: the clutch can KISS MY ASS! I can't do it, I cannot drive, there's just no way I will ever be clinically sane and calm on a road where there are other drivers, cars, houses, children playing, pets, roadworks, streetlamps or spanish people.
Saw Sahara last night and it was better than I expected, although a moustache that looks like something slightly bald crawled onto your face and died is never a good look (Matthew McConaughey tate note boyo). Started a really fascinating book (what? I am SO jobhunting...jeez) that little_lottie lent me, finished all the gloomcookie comics, lamented yet another day where I failed to see my ginger-haired piano playing bretheren, ate jacket potato, had several absorbing daydreams and wore red pants over my jeans. Pretty regular stuff as always *sigh* I did have a mild adventure when i put two socks in the machine and they came out as three.
I wish I could bounce, that would be an uber superpower.

I am definately not feeling this unpredictable weather. It does not please me.
Well I've finally come home to rest for a day before journeying forth to Scotland to see the rellys. This month has been bizarrely non-stop, and considering I have little to no invisable overdraft left, this displeases me greatly.
I have been (in the last few weeks) to Manchester, then Colchester, then Hamsterjam, most recently to Newquay (details to follow) and in a few days I will be residing temporarily in Dumbarton (its all in the name my friends).
Manchester was much fun, Hamsterjam was enjoyable and uber fun was had in the company and the crazy hostal with my glorious hetero-lifemate little_lottie and our pimpdaddys Red and G. We were mistaken for hookers, found out that america invented anal sex, tormented (apparently) the boys whilst they were increadibly stoned curtesy of some monstorously powerful brownies, saw bits of gay pride and made friends with the dutch police. This was most pleasant.
Newquay was spent with my cousin and her friends in a truly disgusting boarding house. The carpet was full of trodden in chewing gum and dead crawlie things, the curtain rail was broken, the rungs of the metal bunk bed ladders were all snapped off(promoting some amazing drunk acrobatics come bed time), the shower had two temperatures (skin-blisteringly hot or Antarctica)and no water pressure and the toilet smelled of fish. Despite this, mondo fun and antics was had by all. I, for one, was definately enjoying the surfer dudes, if not the gale-force winds...
I want to be home for a while now, everyone has turned 21 and everyone has run out of money. I still don't have a job. This does not please me.
I do so enjoy having friends.

The only thing I'm going to say about the terrorist actions is that for the entire week i've had a bloody inconveniant time getting anywhere, the one week I had to actually go places. *sigh* Right, that's it, anything else will cause god knows how many arguments.
Went to Maggie's bday partaaay, which was tres coolies, then went to graduation which wasn't. My robes kept falling off, my hat was hot and wonky (yes it was), the speaker went on for about a year about how great he was, there was no air and I hadn't had any lunch. Then I held a fake diploma and got snapped. I even had to pin my hood to my bra, which was a faintly bizarre experience.
Stayed in Colchester and saw some of my favourite menfolk, watched 'War of the Worlds' (not bad i have to say), also watched 'look who's talking' (wohoo!) Then came home. Then went out. My life is such torment.
I am very tried.

For anyone who was connected with the disasters on Thursday: my deepest condolances. It all seems a bit unreal, but I suppose it's stuff like this that throws life into sharp focus.
With this in mind I've decided that I'm going to make a list of things that I love:
The 80's (It wasn't all bad haircuts...)
Soft Rock (in small doses)
Star Signs (it's an air thing)
candyfloss (It's sugar AND it's pink, what's not to love!)
Vampires (who doesn't?)
the feel of grass (the legit kind!)
my glasses (always handy)
Waking up early at the weekend (and going back to sleep. Yay!)
Books (this one is very important)
looking out of windows
Finding a pound in the pocket of your discarded jeans
Long phone calls
The smell of rain
Making strangers laugh (it soughts the quirky from the rigidly sensible)
There are many more things I love, about as much as there is toot in my purse. Today I found a wet wipe and two deutch marks in my zip pocket. I have never been to Germany in my life.
I think I have a gremlin.

I can't find a printer, I can't find a job, I can't find a CD i like, I can't find the hoover...it's a conspiracy!! The world is trying to undermine my stubbornly good mood. How dare it mock my Brave Little Toaster dance?
I'm procrastinating. I'm not sure why but it suits me just fine and long may it continue, altho i've a feeling lack of funds is going to call me to order.
I've got to:
1)Find a job (d'uh)
2)Book driving lessons
3)Stop my head feeling like numb but dangerously precarius cold cotton wool (both extremely odd and disconcerting)
Last night i was distressed (this is putting it mildly), unfortunately that seems to be a state i've been repeatly reduced to throughout the year so far. Who knew 21 would be so mundanely traumatic? *shakes self* ANYWAY...
I had a dream that i was in a park with my friends (i think everyone i ever knew made a guest apperance) and i tried to climb into a tunnel which was suspended off the ground slightly above head height. The tunnel was slooped upwards and inside I slipped and fell out backwards, not able to save myself from falling. I was falling headfirst when i miraculously managed to grasp the lip of the tunnel, righted myself, avoided a jutting piece of metal halfway down and landed lightly on my feet without hurt. I was amazed and pleased with myself and whipped round to see if anyone had seen me but they were all looking the other way and i remember feeling indignant but relieved at the same time. The only person watching was Hulk Hogan (go figure) who winked at me. So that was nice.
I do remember that little_lottie had gone to get an ice cream and incredible_me was too busy looking for something better!

Part Expert Kisser
You're a kissing pro, but it's all about quality and not quantity
You've perfected your kissing technique and can knock anyone's socks off
And you're adaptable, giving each partner what they crave
When it comes down to it, your kisses are truly unforgettable
Part Passionate Kisser
For you, kissing is about all about following your urges
If someone's hot, you'll go in for the kiss - end of story
You can keep any relationship hot with your steamy kisses
A total spark plug - your kisses are bound to get you in trouble
Sean Connery is STILL sexy even when he's a disturbingly Scottish-Spanish-Egyptian dude. There out to be a law. I think there is.
Goddamn chicklit and it's pathetic Bridget Jonesing... Damn it. Damn it to hell. Or Alaska. Or possibly Lewisham.
Could the woman get anymore stupid, could it be any less succesfully feminist, could I be any more bitter? Feed me after midnight and I turn into a militant nerdslut; a frightening and frankly distracting turn of events.

|Jun. 8th, 2005 02:22 pm So now, the end is near....|
It's all over.
Well, sort of. Exams, ER, Desperate Housewives and student loans have all come to a fairly anti-climatic close. Life as i know it just kind of...stopped. And yet it's all remained the same, except instead of that stomach-curdling dread of finality, i'm now empty and completely directionless.
Ah well: going to Alton Towers, manic round of BBQ's (food poisoning ahoy!), summer ball etc etc and therefore have no time to mope. *sigh* I'm going to miss so many people, especially my housemates who were always only a door away, even when we officially weren't really speaking to each other.
We were great friends, we always laughed everyday, we never actually fell out, there was never a love triangle, we respected each others wardrobe choices, we all enjoyed Star Trek. Oh god, where am I ever going to find that level of harmony in my living arrangements again?!
The world awaits in that watch-glancing-foot-tapping way. I'm going to stand on the corner, hanging back with my friends for just a bit longer tho.
I suppose I should get dressed.
