If this week was an emoji...

...it'd be the thumbs up, crossed with what looks like the bubonic plague.

As in, “I’m sweating out of every orifice and disfigured by pus-filled insect bites, but I whined so much during February’s snow that I have no choice but to Brave This Out! Summer’s the BEST! Never end, stultifying heat!!!"


Non-FOMO of the week

As much as I love Britney - and as my Last.fm can attest, I fucking LOVE Britney - there was no way in hell I was ever joining Saturday’s 57,000-strong Brighton-bound throng of fellow homosexualists. 

I had a perfectly pleasant night in instead, thank you for asking. Think the Slumber Party video, minus Tinashe and most of the dry ice. 

Afterwards, my less hermit-prone friend WhatsApp'd: “I think you’d have enjoyed it. Other than the crowds. And queues. And gays.”


Non-sarcastic use for that Phoebe-out-of-Friends GIF of the week

'SAME' of the week

The watermelon in my fridge *sighs, melodramatically*.

Started with such seasonal promise; ended in an overheated, unpalatable, off-colour mush. Some of us are only made for temperatures up to 25ºC. 

AND NO, BOYFRIEND, I WILL NOT STOP BUYING WHOLE WATERMELONS.


Quote of the week

This week I was mostly...

Cloud Atlas (again)

It’s been my go to summer read since 2005, for reasons I can’t quite put my finger on. Androids?

Spyro the Dragon

I’ll confess that the sun may have done something to my brain, and the 1998 PS1 platformer is about all I can handle at the moment.

All Saints, 'After All'

New album Testament is pretty good, but their belated reunion with William Orbit is on a different level entirely. 


More things of weeks

It's been a while. I know I shouldn't have kept you waiting, but I'm here now
