Driving ambition

Hey I'm Back

Well school is well and truly underway at the moment and I've found I've actually had to do WORK AT HOME!
What a disasterous thought! quite a lot too what with annoying coursework and that.

That aside other things have been going on too.
Last week I went to teh Steve Fishers house for some drinks. That was quite fun. For a while we played Texas hold-em WITH ARMY MEN!! (currency that is) I started out with a small but effective force but through some luck and skill I had an army which would have put the chinese to shame. The proudest part was when I won Matts beloved Minesweeper dude.
After that I saved the day when we made a much needed trip to the offlicence and I produced my fake ID .
The day after that I with Chris and Nick met up with the random girls that Chris had left his number with. This required a long and slow journey to Lewisham. The whole thing can be summed up in one word as awkward. Not much was said between both parties so we decieded that this wasnt worth bothering with. However One of the girls phoned Chris afterwards and it seemed things are sorted now and maybe we'll be seeing more of these people. I'm fine with that as long as they are more talkative personally because I mean you make an effort and it pisses me off if someone is incapable of trying to continue conversation.
After that the very same day Nick Staines Guy (Reading Chum) and I wandered into the pits of hell (Camberwell) for a party of some girl I didnt know at all. The good thing was it was open house, this struck me as being a bit of a laugh. Unfortuanatly we arrived to find it was cancelled. I was pissed off but it didnt stop me enjoying a free meal on Nicks parents and Half of the Whiskey that Guy had bought along. A bad night was saved.

BIG NEWS!!
I passed my driving theory test! Thats right I'M SEMI QUALIFIED TO DRIVE!
There is actually some semi-interesting anecdotes behind this.
Firstly I had to take the bus to Croydon because the Rents decided to be out. This meant taking a bus past Shirley during the School run. The bus was crowded with bastard Small Chavs! They made loud squeaking noises near the back of the bus. One idiot held down the bus stop button, which pissed off the driver to no end and then when they finally got off they started bashing their hands against the windows. It really makes me wish I had a handy shotgun at times.
Then I arrived in Croydon where I had to wonder for half an hour as I was way too early.
Eventually I got the test underway. During it I thought I had failed when I got penalised on the Hazard Perception test. The bastard thing said I had clicked too many times and would lose my score for that clip. Still though I aced the bastard so thats now that!

A lot is going to happen over the next few weeks. I've got my 18th in about a week which will hail me finally be able to order drinks from pubs with no issues and other such rambuntious japes.
Maybe some film trips and that
I'm also set to return to New York in October for a short family holiday which will yield loads of photos and that. Also John is supposed to be going at the same time so maybe I'll bump into him too.
There be a good few weeks ahead

Summer Summary

Wow I forgot about this.

Never Mind I shall make amends as best as I can with the use of my memory. A lot has taken place since I last posted.

The first Real event of the summer Was france of course, as Has been well documented by others. I shall sum up in a few random words.
Croque Monsuire
SILENCE!
SORTIE! SORTIE!
Beer
Chris in a chefs hat
Aquariums
French People!!!! EVERYWHERE!!!

It was good fun all in all.

The next major event was that I bought a bass guitar. Practice with that continued over the summer. I can play a few things now though not spectacualy

My dad went to have an operation on his nose which saw him out the way for a few days which was fun.

I chilled at some friends houses during this kinda interim period, went to a few parties.

Then Came results day which was quite a nervous time but it was all good
I got A's in English Language and Film
And C's in Psychology and History (which I was giving up anyways)
Then came the event summer had been building up for READING!

This was fantastic. There I went to the front of QOTSA (Queens of the Stoneage) which was quite tiring but hey I saw Josh Homme Up close and got crowd Surfed so all was good. I also saw the Killers, Marilyn Manson, Iron Maiden, The Coral, Incubus, Iggy and the Stooges, The Dropkick Murpheys and the Foo Fighters. Aside from the music a lot went on. I smoked a cigar which I have to say I enjoyed a lot. Chris Devised a new catchphrase; "Judge it!" (or destroy it). On the last night we judged a burger van which was fun as the guy had tried to attack Chris who had been trying to steal a ATM sign. Well we threw things thats about it.
I then made the unwise decision to stay up all night with no sleep, And on a hot day with little going on and walking lots with heavy items makes a hellish scenario, Especially on the london underground.
We also started a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge fire which consisted of tents, chairs, gas canisters (they make a mighty bang, tarps and various other items of camping equipment. Others joined in throwing other such items on we had a huge group of people judging with us, Then the fire brigade ruined our fun. I wont be calling them in future!

Since that I went to Quasar with some others which like jon says is crap. That night also saw a largish party at Chris's house which I got more drunk than usual at. However I managed to keep it all in as usual and didnt pass out so thats another notch on my wall of drunken durability success.

I also went to the BBQ where I judged someones sheep. which was a bit of a laugh.

And today I went back to school which was ok as I have 2 frees before lunch leaving the majority of the day free. I can live with it just fine. Sorry about the vagueness but I really cannot remember a lot of it very clearly but this will do until I have something new to write about.
I've also noticed that these days everyone and his dog seems to have a blog of some sort owing to the MSN spaces and it's a fast growing trend. Those who scorn blogging seem to be turning slowly. HA!

Peace Out Playa's
