For those who don’t know, “Paracetamoxyfrusebendroneomycin” is a song by Amateur Transplants, who also created the fairly well known “London Underground” song. Just thought I’d slip that in there. 🙂
A brief blog from THE smurf here. First, shoutouts… happy birthday yesterday to GoneWacko, who has reached the giddy age of 17. Now, don’t forget, it’s my birthday in 19 days! More on that later. Anyone else I owe shoutouts to? Might as well give the mama smurf a link again too, she might eat me otherwise. Did I mention how intelligent she is? (Compliment quota still exceeded, eh? Oh well, worth a try!)
So, yes, it’s my birthday on Saturday 9th July 2005, and I shall be eighteen years of age. The plan is that around that time I shall be travelling down to the place that is St Andrews to stay with mummy and basically find my way around, watch Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, and do other exciting things. Talking about Star Wars, it’s also possible that I’ll be seeing Episode III on my birthday (yes, the cinema up here is somewhat behind on films compared with… everywhere else in the world, but it’s cheaper than other cinemas too!), which would be somewhat appropriate as I saw Episode II on my 15th birthday, back in 2002, at the Wrexham Odeon. Ah, those were the days… But anyway, I’m generally looking forward to events in July, they should be fun enough. After my birthday, it’s then only a month until the exam results come out, so hopefully they’ll be good!
I got some post today from KGS, saying that I have achieved an award for Young Enterprise, and that I’m invited to the school award ceremony next Thursday. Whether I shall be there, I’m not currently sure, I might be too busy/lazy to go into town to go to school. On the other hands, the boats aren’t that bad that day when it comes to not-having-to-find-stuff-to-do-all-day.
Talking about not-having-to-find-stuff-to-do-all-day, I was in town yesterday for another driving lesson. Had to get up at 6.30am to catch the 7.30am boat, which got in at 9am. My driving lesson was at 11am (so I couldn’t get the midday boat which got in at 1pm, which I normally do – my lesson is usually at 2pm on a Monday or Wednesday). The return boat departed at 4.40pm. Therefore, I had to find things to do from 9am to 11am, and then noon until 4pm, which you might think mightn’t be that hard, but it’s not always that easy, either. I ended up going for walks around the outskirts of town in the morning, exploring roads I hadn’t particularly explored before. Then I had the actual driving lesson, which was interesting, as we managed to get a puncture (the instructor’s fault, not mine, before you say anything :p) and had to change the tyre! Was a bit different, anyway! Then I got some food, which killed half an hour, before heading down to the library for an hour to check e-mail and generally pass more time. I managed to pass time there until around 2pm, when I decided to take a walk along some random roads and ended up at Scapa, a couple of miles out of town. Walked back along the other road, feeling thirsty (I should have taken a drink with me, but didn’t) and hot (it was a fairly nice day), and more time was passed. Bought a paper, went to the ferry waiting room and waited. Caught ferry, went home, and that was about that. Yesterday evening there was a presentation at the local Sanday school by the S3 pupils who went to Malawi last month with the First Minister as a result of them winning the Scottish Schools Africa Challenge. It was quite a nice presentation, but I was rather tired by the end of it having been up since 6am.
Hmm, that ended up being a rather long story, longer than intended. 🙂 And this now shall be the end of the blog of the 21st June 2005!
