Sick!

About 11pm last night my stomach went crazy and decided to put me in major pain for about an hour and make me do diarrea every 10 mins bad style! At about 12 I threw up pretty good followed by another 2 hours of pain and diarrea then some more throwing up! After that it was just pains and runs til 6:45am when I finally got to sleep! Stoked I got a day off work but it so wasn't worth the pain! Think I ate something dodgy and I've had a few drinks today and am okay so far so maybe at work tommorrow! That's about it, just gunna watch Lost now as I feel to rough to move about and if I sleep now I won't be able to sleep tonight! Yeeeeeeah!

Fart!

Nearly a week without an update, that's terrible! Back from uni, been to the dentist and was charged £15.90 for the privalege of being told my teeth are fine! Suppose it beats them falling out! Worked twice and went to the zoo Monday! Everyone has got so frigging good since I left! Especially Nick who was sending huge 5's like nobody's bussiness and dialled whips! What a badass! Dialed in my new trick a bit too! Ivan is opening up the zoo for us on Friday for a free Christmas session which is awesome! Can't wait! Off to see Anthony now so write tommorrow!

Wet and Wild!

Was awesome! Just 5 of us went being Myself, Laura, Belt, Stu and Matt! Hit up all the slides I think and swam round the tunnel bit underwater which lasted until just the end of my breath! At one point we were on the single rings which has numerous different pools connected by slides going down and I was blocking one of the slides as I had floated over there so some ratty 12 year old starts hitting me in the face with her ring! A few jokes about how her mum likes it rough like that and she went down the next slide. As a show of my masculinity I tipped Belt out of his ring and pushed him down the slide only to look down into the next pool and see this girl punching him in the head whilst he cowered in the corner helpless! We slid down to the rescue and I recieved a punch in the back for my efforts before we managed to escape!
At another point on the same slide I tried to jump straight into my ring and land halfway down a slide however a miscalculation saw me landing halfway down the slide on my bunched fist, it hurt! Still hurts now but it's not broken probably 'cos it's better now!
Just an awesome day of slides and anctics! Got Mat on my shoulders, then I got on Belt's shoulders in the main pool, launching people into the sky and after 5 years finally managed to get kicked out! Usually we get 3 strikes for training slides and stuff and the guard at the bottom changes every time but this time it was the same woman! We had been told off for misbehaving before so we decided to train a slide as we were leaving anyway, we tried stop halfway on the double ring slide but it was too fast to stop in so I went down this one slide and stopped halfway to wait for the Mat, Belt and Stu express and after they hit it was hard to get going again cos the slide was soooo slow! The alarm had been triggered at the top so the woman was waiting at the bottom but we were going so slow we had to push ourselves out! It doesn't sound funny but imagine being first out on a rebelious train down a slide to see Stu come out at snail pace pushing and Belt actually get up and walk out of the bottom, it was so lame it was funny, me and Matt couldn't help ourselves and were in histerics! The woman went ape shit on everyone else (cos she fancied me) and we got kicked out! Banging!
Back to mine for fish and chips and the guided tour of my house and everyone went home!
The end!

Thunder, thunder, thunder, Thundercats, HO!!!!

No post for a while but I've been a busy bee doing coursework and such, given myself a day off to chill out and back onto it tommorrow! After I've handed in my work on Wednesday that's it until the 17th of January when I have one exam! Yeah!
Going out on Monday to celebrate my friend leaving for London and it's fancy dress fil theme! I'm going as Lion-O from Thundercats (even though I don't remember there being a Thundercats film) so expect some mad pictures on Tuesday night or later that week!
Bought Flybikes 'uno', FBM 'Don't buy this', Shitluck 'on the road' and 'Stoked on being Pumped' too the other day! Flybikes is still amazing, Stoked on Being Pumped is pretty cool, some odd music though, Shitluck has some dialed riding but very strange music and slightly bad editing and haven't watched FBM yet!
Made pancakes yesterday too, they were nice!
Guess that's about it, just been doing work mainly. Gunna try finish it tommorrow, in one day! Alllriiight!

The sands of time...

Eyes stinging, watering, closing. A constant battle to stay awake. The bright glare of the screen is too much and hunger is slowly advancing. My fingers ache from the cold of the empty house and from their seemingly endless tapping on the keys in front of me. The tapping of the keys, tap, tap, tap, another minute gone by. Tap, tap, tap, there goes an hour, disappearing forever into the endless spiral of the past. Time slips away and I let it willingly, I wish it on faster, to pass in a blink but I musn't I think. Time is precious, I'm still young, I should be watching the hours fly past as I laugh and race through life. I shouldn't be throwing it away, it shouldn't be like this...should it? I lift my wrist and watch a few precious seconds tick away. To hell with I think and close my eyes...

York video trailer

Got bored of doing essays so I made a little trailer for the York video, it is quite irrelevant and all the clips are of me nearly but it was something to do and I kinda like it! Real trailer being made by Tom and Angus which hopefully won't feature any of my new clips (the Millenium Square line is fine, everyone has seen that)! Well here it is, actually made 3 versions but this is my favourite!

Essays and chick flick moments!

Woke up about 1:15, went to a lecture at 2 about jobs and such. Didn't help at all! Then went to library to do some work, Kathryn rang me for my debit card so she could put money in my bank so went there! Said I'd go to bank with her and on the way checked my balance, overdraft had been extended so didn't need to go to the bank, went to estate agents and paid my house deposit, paid Kathryn £220 back and bought a strawberry Yazoo, mmmmmm......so nice, and £5 credit!
Went home, did work, went to get work of Lucy but all the girls were in the back room and ended up staying around 2 hours before we decided to go to Morrisons for sweets (the whole time I felt like I was in a chick flick just hanging out with girls, kinda like Tom would feel in his halls although I didn't get my nails painted and talk about boys, ha ha), so got a bus, spent £12 on sweets, came back, did essay stuff for a bit, read some of my book and ate way too many sweets! Yay! Trying to watch Fly Bikes Uno on google vids but it won't load! Might try load up Chill Bro or watch one of mine then go to bed!

Positivity!

Done a bit of work now and feel happier! Gunna watch Ghost Rider!

Negativity!

Tired, pissed off, too much work, no money, no fun! Everyone else is going out tonight, I have £5 (found another fiver today), Halifax declined me to upgrade my overdraft and I need to pay a house deposit and my rent on Saturday! Electricity is overdue and so is water and I owe Kathryn £300! Can't wait to go home for Christmas!

Blah, blah, blah!

Wathched Road Fools 13 last night, silly idea 'cos I wanted to ride afterwards! Also watched all 3 4down summer of fun(?) trailers and saw some guy doing a cheat way of doing whiplashes! It was 10:45 so I rushed out for the last bus of the night and went to try said move! Upon leaving the house it was apparent it had rained, it always does when I'm inside, like a ninja, pretty sure it's taking the piss 'cos I never see it, it's just always wet! Did this the night before too! Anyway, turns out it wasn't an easy way at all but proobably harder so I gave up! Got stressed with backwards manuals and wasn't enjoying it so I called it a night! I had missed last bus back so went to Kathryn's but she wasn't in! Had no credit so couldn't ring her and only had £3 so didn't wanna waste it on a pay phone so left a note saying ring me and went back out to ride! Kathryn didn't call until about 1:30am when she got back but I'm glad she didn't, had a right session! Improved my full cabs massively and did a cool line I was pretty impressed with and when she rang I didn't wanna go back but was pretty tired and had a lecture at 9am! Txt Tom to see if he would film the line but still haven't got a reply, I'll try get it on the video though!
Just need to go check my pizza.....right done, good job 'cos it was ready! Mmmmmm....
So, slept at Kat's, lecture at 9am, golden syrup porridge, pot noodle and pringles, another lecture, found my booklet for the essay which is due in next Wednesday which is so lucky, still missing bits though! Need to start that but doing pub quiz in an hour, definately gunna win this time, might google random facts now! I'm only going for the half time snacks of pickled onions, crisps and salted popcorn! Speaking of food I best eat this pizza! Write soon! Need to stop with the exclamation marks!!!!! Don't do it when I write on paper!!!!

Dr Pepper!

Realised I didn't actually mention Dr Pepper! Sorry to all the fans out there, I am also drinking Dr Pepper!

Damp riding, leg hurting, lecturing, pizza and of course, Dr Pepper!

Reet, well got up at about 9:45 to meet Tom at the park and do some filming! It had rained the night before without my knowing and the park was damp! Rode anyway until about 12:30 and gashed my leg twice on the pedal and once on the peg! Nice! Filmed one line but after Tom had left nearly landed something else on the end! Work on it this week!Checked my e-mails and stuff in the library, went to my 3-5 lecture which only lasted and hour! Recently I have only been able to dream of bmx in lectures and not pay attention! This isn't good!
Went home, read some Wilbur Smith which I haven't touched in about a month! Was good, might read some more now or watch Road Fools 13 or both! This all depends if we are doing the pub quiz again though! Have £3.10 to my name and am £1500 overdrawn! Asked for an extention as you know so we shall see about that!
Asked Tom if I could go to Japan with him, he's thinking about it but in 2009! I was hoping to go about June next year!
Ate a relaly nice but 3 day out of date pizza, well, still eating it and then gunna do pub quiz, read or roadfools! Erm....bye!

Awesome weekend!

Went to a party on Friday night and stopped at Tommy C's on the way! He wasn't going and didn't know anyone that was, Polly and Laura both live there and weren't going and Lucy and everyone were supposed to be coming but backed out last minute! I was worried as Tommy C knows most people on the course!
Took me ages and a few phone calls to find the place in the freezing cold and when I did I was immediately asked to pay £2 into the stripper fund then hassled for more, didn't give any more! I walked in and knew nobody which sucked but found Ed, the host who was pretty drunk! I gave him his present, some furry sex dice from pound land which he insisted I play with some guy I never met after he did it with someone else! The dice landed on lick and anywhere and I looked at the guy! He didn't look drunk, I hadn't touched a drop and we stood for some time! Eventually I said "where do you wanna lick me?" and pretended to pull my pants down, an ice breaker and he licked my neck...nice! Ed went to a different room and I was left alone! I stood texting and stuff for about 5 mins when Ed came in and said "That's the best present ever, some girls just had to suck my toes" also...nice! He went upstairs and I saw my chance to escape so I picked up my untouched booze and pretended to go outside on my phone! I never returned and missed the stripper by 20 minutes meaning I had paid £2 to walk to a party in the cold, get my neck licked by some guy I've never met and then leave before the stripper! Awesome! I was set for the weekend!
Early night and the next day I went to view houses at 12! Looked round two houses, none of which I liked! Loved the location of the first and the inside of the second but hated the opposite parts of each! We went back to the estate agents and after a heated discussion opted for the house we looked at on Wednesday! A nice big one 5 mins from the uni, perfect! I have a ground floor bedroom though but just means I don't have to walk far! Nice! This means I have to put a £240 deposit on the house in 7 days from then or we lose the house and everyone else loses the money so I applied to extend my overdraft today to £2750! Not a wise move!
After this I went past the skatepark to some bushes that Billy told me Scott's forks are in! I found a prodder and crawled into the 5 foot high 8 foot long bushes and rumaged for a good 30 mins before emerging into what I thought was an empty path but turned out to be the path of some guy! He jumped and looked at me funny and I just started laughing and said "alright?" He walked away!
I didn't find the forks and later found out from H man that somebody might have already got them, great!
I got a train home but made a stop in York to get Angus' camera and for a little session in the train station! Angus forgot his pegs so the rail was out of order so we headed over the road to this undercover step spot! Was pretty sick and Angus got three sick lines, quite well filmed I think except the light made it blur slightly but that was difficult to avoid! I got a trick I was quite stoked on, Angus wasn't! We were there for an hour and a half before I went to get a train home, awesome session!
Drove to Scott's and after watching Road Fools 10, Ride Parts and the end credits of Road Fools 5 where Robbie Morales does a show with finger bikes we hit the hay and ended up talking til like 2am when we decided we would sleep, finally!
Up at 9am (or there abouts) in hope of getting a train about 10! With it being Sunday they were not so frequent and we missed the one around 10 and had to wait til 11:25! Out of everyone that said they were coming only Waudby showed up! What a suprise!
Anyway it was bone dry everywhere (except a few patches at Hyde) and we stopped first at Millenium Square! There was a fair on taking up the whole place and after an unsuccessful go on the crane game I almost nailed the curved wall to 180 but before I could land it Scott nearly ran over some kid and a woman complained to security and got us kicked off! After a quick stop at these tight transitions in the uni we went to Hyde where Waudby joined us and everyone got a line! Waudby got a few nice lines, Scott got a cool line and a mint trick and I landed something I'd never tried before but seen on a video the previous night! I was stoked!
Then we went to the uni where Waudby did his new signature move before we headed to Playhouse steps, the long way round (thanks Scott)! It was slippy and everyone was tired so no lines went down here! We moved to Brooklyn banks where someone had thoughtfully put in a sub for Waudby to shut down and I was trying a footjam fakie to carve around three for ages before we had to call it 5 mins as we needed to get the train so Scott could play tennis! I got it but watching it back it sucks and was not worth it as it's not going in the video! We rushed to the station as fast as we can and Waudby lost his ticket in his pocket! We got to the station 10 mins early thanks to Scott and he got a text from his dad saying he had cancelled the tennis court 'cos it was too cold or something! Ha ha, all that rushing for nothing! We watched the footage back and parted with Waudby at Garforth! I drove home for some real food (as opposed to uni food) and then caught my train home!
An awesome weekend as I rode both days with my favourite guys and got two lines I was stoked on! Jihad!

Not much to report!

Just bought Family Guy the movie for £7.15 and all the gear to make nachos costing more than that! Went in four shops looking for cheese sauce like they have at the cinema and didn't find any! Just bought tons of cheese which never tastes as good!
One comment on my pictures saying some of them are mint! Not sure if it's sarcastic or not!
That's all, off to eat nachos, watch Family Guy the movie and go to a party! Looking at two houses tommorrow then off to York riding! Write on Monday when I get back!

Late night stuff!

It's 04:21 in the morning! Just watched XXX2 (not a porno), my gay housemate has just got back with a friend and is going "Oh....my....god" over and over but not in a sexual way, like somebody just told him his friend has been bitching about him style! Just posted a load pictures on Streetphire which will probably just get destroyed! Actually have no idea why I posted them, guess it's better than them lying in a file forever! Anyway, they are below (if it works).
Also watched Left/right which is still amazing and I'm hungry but gunna wait til breakfast to save money! Real post later today maybe...night night!

Well photos didnt work! Check them and the following shitty comments here:

Scott's blog?

Woke up the other day, ordered a chiba melt (chicken, bacon, grilled onion and blue cheese) from Sketch's deli down the road sat down and ate it whilst checking Scott's blog! Got some rank pictures of his foot but other than that it's not very good! You know, just a copy of mine, he's even been stealing ideas as he's run out already! I wouldn't reccomend looking but the link is below:

scotttedder.blogspot.com

But if amateur writing skills and worse content than what you are currently reading float your boat then check it out, if not then stick here and have a good time! Pictures soon too! In fact, maybe some now:


Ratty ass night!

Didn't even come with these guys!
Just met them out!
(Tommy C and the gang)









Me and a bouncer then me and Tommy C!







Don't even know that black guy! That chick could't dance for sh*t so I taught her that move! Boomf!
















Wait til I get Kayleigh's camera up (the girls I originally came out with then ditched for these guys once I'd stolen Laura's camera)! Some mad pics on there! Sorry they are so small but hate it when my whole blog page is taken up by pictures! Off for a nicey nicey pizza then off to the cinema by myself (how cool) for NACHOS and a viewing of Planet Terror! Write tommorrow maybe!

When it's too wet to ride I get too drunk to care...

...or so the previous post would suggest but that was a special occasion, my mates Birthday! I can't afford to drink all the time but it was a pretty ratty night! Pictures soon maybe!
Eating pizzas for the next 5 nights and the previous 2 as they were half price in Somerfield! Yeah!
Went out and spent the last of my money to celebrate quitting my job on Sunday with Kathryn by hitting up pizza hut and the cinema! It was between American Gangster, Good Luck Chuck and Planet Terror! Decided we wanted a comedy and didn't know much about Planet Terror so watched Good Luck Chuck! Was pretty good though! Might go watch Planet Terror! Oh by the way, I'm back in action! Haven't been finishing my pizza hut pizzas recently but polished off a share size starter (spin rolls...mmmm) and a large stuffed crust pizza, followed by some nachos in the cinema! Bad ass!
Just been sleeping, going to lectures and not riding cos it's too wet! May have scoped out a new dry spot but it's unlikely, off to check it now! Realised the cage I keep my bike in is possibly big enough for full cabs but I'm in pain for hunger so post later! Off to a party on Friday so look out for that! Gunna write about Scott's blog too!

T: That's not a fucking question, get rid of that question mark right now! YOU C*NT! My God, can't you say C*NT, you queer or something! I've had enough of this shit! (Leaves room mumbling shit)
Well that was it! WTF????

Dr Pepper is soooo nice!

Had a lecture at 2pm today so got a sleep in! Afterwards hit exi 'cos it was the first time it's not been wet all week and stayed til about 5:30-6ish! Pretty cool sesh! Only went to try a few full cabs as I thought it would be slightly damp! Was bone dry but full of ratty kids! Some kid wanted to feebz the big driveway ledge down the steps but was scared so I did feebz, then smith then ice all perfect first try one after another and made him try it! He landed it and was stoked! Tried the ice again just before I left and took like 20 goes but it felt sweet! Love ice picks! Wanna ice the handrail there!
Was doing cross-footers and riding up to the wallride after dropping in to eye up cross footed wallride when some mountain biker with no brakes came blasting at me! As I also had no brakes and was cross footed I couldn't do an awful lot but kinda carved the quarter thinking he would turn but he just blasts into the side of me and wipes me out! Really hurt actually and I'm walking a bit funny now but got back up and iced the ledge!
Got home, ate tea (fit pepperoni pizza) then rented Hostel Part 2 which I reckon will be crap but you get a free back catalouge dvd with all top titles so make sense (2 for the price of one) so also got Anger Management (was between that Alexander, XXX 2, Lady Vengeance and Serenity) so gunna watch those two now and then go to sleep! Working tommorrow, hopefully for the last time!

WTF?

Props 61 is F*CKING BANANAS!!!

Wednesday, 14 November 2007

Oh yeah!

Just finished my essay! It's just within the word count and it's a heap of shit! Wish I'd spent more time on it as this could easily affect my final grade! Got two other courseworks due in soon too! Told myself I'd try hard this year and just boshed this shit out 2 days before the deadline! Needs to be handed in in less than 12 hours! I suck!
Gunna watch some bmx vids now, really wanna watch forward! Might watch Grounded and Left/right is a must! Will that ever get boring? Wanted to watch a roadfools earlier but it's a bit late now!
Also went to Burger King for tea and had an angry whopper! Which reminds me, I was heading heading to Greggs for lunch earlier when I walked past a cafe called Stairway 211 advertising spicy wraps for 85p! I decided if Greggs didn't have my cheesy leek and potato I would go there! Greggs didn't have it so I went to check it out! It's basically a small cafe underground kinda which centers around the notion of Heaven and Hell! The cafe is split into two parts, one being painted black and red with leather chairs representing hell and one painted white with glass tables and white chairs etc representing, you guessed it, Heaven! Also the menu has two sides, the healthy crap like salads and salmon etc being on the Heaven side and the unhealthy stuff like bacon sandwiches and cakes being on the hell side! I opted for a Jalapeno chicken pannini with free Nachos, side salad and coleslaw from the hell side which was nice, a bit on the small side maybe but tasted good! Can't wait to go back tommorrow!
Anyway, I'm tired and need some visual stimulation! Write tommorrow!

Tuesday, 13 November 2007

Christmas is coming!

Just seen a Pringles advert with Christmas stuff on and it got me excited! Only 6 weeks to go!

Indian and essays and drunken bums!

Yesterday (Sunday) was awoken by a faint knocking at my door which turned out to be Mat! Damn youngsters getting up so early! It was cowboy time I think! Lucy came downstairs about 10 and asked me when the last time I’d seen this hour on a Sunday was, Mat said “yesterday....”
The weather looked really nice outside and checking with Angus in York the weather there sucked so a quick gloat and a cheese and onion pasty and we were off to town to ride Exi and street!
Outside it was freezing cold so all that gloating for nothing! We got a bus to town and when we were just about to get to the bikes I asked Mat if he had his bike lock key! NO!! Agh! A quick bus ride back to my house to get it followed by a sub of the day for me and two more pasties for Mat and we were back on the way! Got there, unlocked the bikes and went to ride! It was freezing cold and pretty busy so I just chilled trying full cabs and doing the wallride (which is sooooo sweet) no opposites today though! Managed to get a sweet ice the whole length of this rail and did what felt like a nice toothy down it! Tried it down a ledge and died!
We were probably there for about an hour or two before we got too cold and called it a day, street was off due to the previous nights rain and H man was at Prissick and said it was cold and wet and they were leaving so we just headed home! We stopped at Durham services as Mat was hungry! Only been on the road 15 mins! Walked around the service station about 8 times before I finally decided on a £5.25 wrap with extra chips for a pound! This place was expensive, even for a service station! I did however get a nice free side salad!
Drove Mat home and then headed home myself via Tescos as I was gunna get my dad some Yorkshire fruits or whatever they are to say sorry for taking a dvd he wanted to watch up to uni for 2 months and forgetting it 3 times but it was shut at like 6pm! So much for 24 hours!
Hit up Costcutter in Tad but didn’t have any cash so had to buy over £5 worth of stuff on my card so got my dad some chocolate, my mum and Kathryn some chocolate, bought a strawberry Yazoo, a pepperami wideboy, some salted Nobbys nuts (which I thought were salt and vinegar, gutted) and some Japanese wasabi and soy flavoured almonds (which I thought were peanuts, gutted).
Went to Kat’s for 5 mins then had to dash home for my train, quickly threw everything about in the house (my room is being re-decorated and all my stuff is in the corridor) trying to find my laptop charger, didn’t find it! Jumped on the train home, at my food and did some “work” on the essay I’m supposed to be doing right now and then slept at Kat’s! She wasn’t there but I had the key! Woke up at 9:55am, went to lecture, met Kat and gave her the key, had a deli (bacon, brie and grape), some Pringles and a Dr. Pepper!
Went back to mine for a sleep, had a shower, some tea of chicken curry and rice and 8 veg somosas and 8 onion bajjis! Nice!
Then came to the library, on the way saw Tom who was so drunk he could barely stand up! It’s 8pm!
Read, e-mails, checked other stuff and now gunna do an essay due for Wednesday I still haven’t started! Fun....
Just found out I don’t have a 9am start tomorrow, rather a 3pm, yeah!!! Get in! Ha ha, even better news just came in that I never have a 9am on a Tuesday again! Ye-ha!
Write soon!

Bit bitchy but I tell it like it is!

Hit up Unit 23 today! Very early start at 7am as the plan was to set off about 8 however this didn’t quite go to plan as I told Tom the previous night to leave his phone on all night and sure as hell when I rang it was turned off! Rang around and finally found that Tom had decided to stay up all night doing drugs and had left his phone at home! Idiot! So we didn’t actually leave until after 9am which meant me and Waudby were waiting around for an hour or so! He was pretty moody all day as he was coming down and hadn’t slept and stopped riding about 3 hours before the end and went on to complain that he wanted to leave at 6 as he had to be home to meet Rhiannon even though Waudby wanted to stay til it closed (only fair as we had driven all the way and it wasn’t mine and Waudby’s fault he had done drugs all night)! Anyway much whining and sulking later (even got everyone’s bags for them and brought them to the door) me and Waudby decided we would stay only half an hour in the foam pit and then leave which sent him in a hissy fit but the foam pit closed after 10 mins so we just went home even though I would have liked to stay longer! He even tried to say he wasn’t gunna pay full petrol money as he hadn’t come all the way from York!!! I had a feeling he would say this though so had my reasons ready that I had to drive all the way from York anyway to get him from Newcastle and I have to take my car back tommorrow (I only brought it up to go to Unit), and I payed from York when he took me before no questions asked even though it was the same situation! In short he was a pain in the ass but I did well keeping a smile on my face!

Anyway, thought I’d get the rant out of the way so I can write about the good bits now! Waudby came up and stayed over last night! We hit Exi late (Tom didn’t come for reasons mentioned before) and was a pretty good session! Stayed about two and a half hours and got opposite wall rides dialed in nearly as good as regular and a nice icepick down a ledge, slow and controlled! Waudby was getting mad hight on the box and doing sweet hang 5s! Went home and put Waudby to bed on my sofa before our 7am awakening!

Drive up was pretty ok, wasn’t too tired after I got going and it passed pretty quick!

Had to have the heating on all the way up and was sweating cos Tom had drug chills or whatever but was ok! Listened to the same Rise Against album about 4 times and didnt get bored once!

Unit was cool! Went with the express aim of learning turndowns and couldnt even do them into the foam! I have given up now! Tried a frontflip twice but didnt get far and got some sweet tuck no-handers but did have about 4 days of air time so was easy!

Just chilled, did nothing big and I’m glad I did because I learnt full cabs because of it! Just did ‘em for like 2 hours at the end!

All in all a good day, ate 2 hot dogs and a malteaser slice thing whilst there, looked in the shop but found nothing I liked.....erm.....that’s it really....met some dialed twins, riding wise and personality and Tom even managed to smile once or twice in the park and was ok on the way home once he was feeling better but still not best pleased with him after I made the effort to take him up, especially the petrol beef (he didn’t actually pay me yet either but bought me £4 worth of sweets which is ok, even though he was saying don’t get too many.....agh!) But yeah, Waudby has been cool this weekend and might ride Newcastle tommorrow if the weather holds up!

That’s all for now, I’m knackered, sorry about the beef but it was pretty annoying and this diary is supposed to show how I really feel, you gotta take the good with the bad etc so maybe a nice post coming tommorrow! Noz is funny!

Back on my laptop!

Finally on the internet on here so a few old updates posted below that I did in word!
My earphone wire has been chewed through and now electricutes my ear when I put it in so need some more of them!
Just watched Props 58 which Angus lent me and it's awesome! BMX at it's finest and pretty funny throughout, especially the bit at the start of the shitluck roadtrip and the end credits where they buy a $40 bike! Ha ha!
Followed this up with trying to watch fly bikes uno which is a mint video (think I posted something to this effect a while ago) but it wouldn't buffer past a few mins in so I ordered it from H man!
Then I watched Angus' May web video for like the third time in a month! This video is amazing, really portrays the riding in York (even though I only have one clip) and the lazy music brings out summer, which I miss! Just the antics and the few bails and the laughing in the background remind me of how much fun it is to ride with all the guys down there! Can't wait to go back on Sunday for Robbie's ramp jam! Hope everyone shows up then!
Going up to Glasgow to ride Unit 23 on Saturday which should be good except the fact I have to wake up early and drive all the way up! Much energy drink needed I think!
Well here are the old bits I could find:

Ok, just one, this is to follow "My fish eye isn't fishy enough" further down:

The Witches Hammer is without a doubt THE worst film I have EVER watched! EVER!

Right from the start when it came on with the grainy old film look like one of those romance comedies from when my grandparents were my age I could tell it would be awful! Then I saw the wounds and blood and other such graphics and wanted to turn it off! I gave it the benefit of the doubt but before it was 30 minutes in I felt like stabbing myself in the stomach would be less painful than watching the ‘acting’ (if you can call it that) in this film! At points it looked as though actors forgot their lines and the main vampire, the guy that is supposed to be good couldn’t even show emotion! He just said the lines like he was reading off a script for the first time! Not to mention the fact that throughout I was constantly reminded that the budjet for this film must have been less than my almost full penny jar and every single fight scene was done at two miles an hour and making it very obvious the punches were about 6 foot away! This film can be related to a slow and painful death only much, much worse!

There was however one or possibly two actors that I couldn’t act better than! No joke, I seriously think that and the main character wasn’t one of them! There was also two good characters (who couldn’t act well) but were kinda ok to watch and added a little more to the film, however these were sideline characters that appeared throughout the film and nothing more! It’s sad that these were the best bits of the film!

I’m not kidding when I say I recommend sitting on a 7 foot spike rather than watch this film!

Anyway, Saw 3 was pretty good but it’s 3:53am now so might go to sleep! I had a good idea of not sleeping and just sleeping tommorrow daytime ‘cos it’s wet outside but I might just do both!

Off to Blue Bamboo tommorrow for halloween! Haven’t been there since last year so should be fun! Dance floor is like a sardine can, but in a good way! Write tommorrow maybe!

OK, that's all folks! Probably write on Sunday night next but got an essay in for next Wednesday which I only looked at today so don't get your hopes up!

Thursday!

My poo is green today!

Crappy shit!

I'm tired of all the fucking shit that goes on! I need to take a chill pill for a few days! I mean who really gives a fuck?

Halloweener!

Ha ha! Well, slept most of today due to being so tired! Felt pretty ratty afterwards!
I have made a post before this so pretend this doesn't exist until I post the other one up!
Just got back from Blue Bamboo where I was celebrating Halloween! Small crew though of Me, Kayleigh, Laura and Rosie so that's why I'm back early! That and I have a 9am lecture! I hate it when a word has an a in it and you hit caps lock by mistake and finish the word of in caps and miss the a! Anyway, went out to a place called the ductch and the dutchess or summat next to the other rooms until Lara showed up! Then queued for Digital until we were near the front of the queue and then the girls decided they wanted to go to Blue Bamboo instead so we got a taxi there and the queue was huge! Finally got in, saw Jess Rose briefly and got a little ratty on cheap girly pops! Garlic chips, taxi home and just ate a 47p chicken and bacon sandwich from Somerfield which looked minging si I thought I'd eat it now rather than for lunch tommorrow and it turns out it was nice! Still got 2 15p cornish pasties for lunch tommorrow and a 17p trifle! I love the reduced section!
Probably gunna watch Family Guy now and Left/right which still blows me away every veiwing and then get a few hours sleep before my 9-3 lectures! Yay!
Going home tomorrow which should be good! Looking forward to my own bed!
My stupid housemate is here now, back from work! Just saw my reduced sandwich wrapper on the table and said "bet you any money that sandwich was yours!" Ha ha! Love it!
He says "Joe is holding his willy and thinking of Keeley pouncing on him!" Quite disturbing as I'm the only other person in the room! Agh!
Erm.....riding is cool! Really like the street up here! Especially the Quay side! Tom has been a pussy recently but he text me today saying he has changed and will pull anything I call out for him, I call front filp!
Got free wireless at home so write an update tommorrow! Gunna go get my housemate a tenner for the wireless box! Right, see ya later!

My fish eye isn't fishy enough...

Just a quick update! Went on a solo street mish today and hit a few spots, pretty fun! Then hit the park with Tom Bright and a few locals! Went to my 3-5 lecture, rode again til late, watched some footage at Tom's house and then went for a super size double angry whopper meal with extra angry onions as a side! Was quite nice but was charged 10p for a barbacue sauce!
Went back to Heaton, down the Chillingham arms with people for a bit before walking home via the dvd rental shop! Because of halloween they are doing half price horror films, rented Saw 3 and something crap called the withches sword or summat (it was 50p and you never know unless you try) They both have to be back in 5 hours so I best get cracking! Pretty tired and fully not in the mood for horror! Can't wait!
Rained today a bit too and sold my shoes to Newrick! Bang! Game over!

Bike fixed!

Got up today for my 10am lecture! Talked to Kathryn’s cleaner, much to my dislike! I hate it when people talk to you, like on the metro some crazy woman was talking to me about what her favourite bands were and what gigs she had been to! I don’t care!
So, lecture was ok, went a bit slow!
I’m currently trying to connect to the internet but it won’t let me! I hate technology! I’m “renewing my IP address” doesn’t sound good! Doing this on word by the way!
Anyway, bought myself a bacon, brie and grape sandwich from the deli and got Kathryn a cheese savoury (which is actually really nice). Had a little cat nap (I reckon I was a cat in my previous life) and then took my bike to Dentons to be fixed! I had wrecked my bearings apparently and this is what has been happening to them all (bearings are too small a diameter so break easily) and they were replaced for me by some profile ones! As the guy was “smashing” them out as he described it I walked across the path of a flying bit of metal (seriously like the only bit that flew out I walked right into) which stung a little but I manned it and the job was finished! £8 it cost and it was worth every penny! I love the familiar feeling of pedalling away from Dentons on that straight bit of road, your bike feeling brand new! Ah, can’t beat it! A few power wheelies and 180s later I was back at Kat’s from whence I departed to Mcdonald’s for my tea (couldn’t be bothered to cook) and then home where I finished an essay worth 30% of a module and then rented Die Hard 4 which was pretty good! Just took that back and now doing this before I watch Skavenger and Family Guy before bed! Write tommorrow maybe as we could have wireless (we bought the box, just need to set it all up). Ta-rah!

Work and bad buiscuits!

Don’t you just hate it when you snap a biscuit in half, or what you hope is going to be half and it cheekily snaps into three pieces! Sure the biscuit is laughing but I’m not! It’s annoying and when you dip to small bit it’s so small that the milk hits your finger!
Anyway, crap time at work last night, made £38.50! Should have made about £100 like the other guy I was working with who was doing it for the first time! Was in a horrible mood and just used my free texts last night, texting people when I should have been working and generally being moody!
Anyway, walked to Get Stuffed and met the girls to get a taxi! Asked them if they would wait whilst I got garlic chips but moody Scanlon said no! So I tried to get some on my street but the place didn’t even sell chips (I had been craving these since about 10 and was in a shitty mood) so wasn’t too happy!
Anyway, Lucy and Laura came round and hung out for a bit before Lucy had to go ‘cos Mas was calling her! Then I went to bed, wanted to watch dvds but my laptop was at Kathryn’s so couldn’t!
Was meeting her at 11am today to watch a film and get some food and as the clocks went back that meant an extra hour in bed! However that turned into 4 extra hours and got up about 3pm! Had a cheese and onion pasty, some worchester sauce crisps (I know, where have they been?) and a custard doughnut (which Scott has got me addicted to) for breakfast and by the time I got to Kat’s the only films left on were The Kingdom and Eastern Promises! We went to Franky and Benny’s in the Gate but before I had a convo with Scott about how he has never had a calzone (on the phone due to free minutes) so I’m taking him on a date to Franky and Benny’s on Saturday night to get one! Even got a £5 off voucher! It’s gunna be so romantic! Can’t wait! Anyway, I had a garlic bread pizza with goats cheese and onion for starter ‘cos I’d never tried one and it was pretty nice! Then I had a calzone al pollo and no time for desert ‘cos the film was coming on, good job too ‘cos I couldn’t narrow it down from about 4 desserts! I’m saying ‘cos a lot!
Then watched the film all about Russian Gansters etc and saw Aragon’s shlong quite a lot! Film was interesting but when it said a BBC film I knew it was gunna be a drama type affair (I knew nothing about the film before I went in) but it was ok. Probably belongs on the TV though!
Then walked home and now using Kat’s internet to look at secret videos and do this! I’m really suprised the internet is working, it’s usually really crap and won’t even load a page! Anyway this hurts my arm as I’m lying on the bed! Ouch! See you later!
Also completely stripped my coaster today and greased it but didnt put it back right so it doesnt really fit and stuff! It’s complicated and annoying! Got a free tofee apple with our meal so just ate that! Also had some nachos in the cinema, they are too good! Mmmmmm.....
Listening to Rise Against, they are also too good! Hope some of this made sense, it doesnt to me! Going for real now! Bye x x x x
Actually the internet has stopped working now! This sucks, someone should sort that out! I’ve semi-constructed an angry letter to the manager of Lovaine Halls!

One way ticket to shred city!

That's exactly what Angus came up to Newcastle with the other day! Had an awesome sesh and some kid named Sam tagged along who turned out to be a real laugh! Got kicked off "the penny" after about 3 runs and upon returning an hour later managed 2 runs before the same guy came and shouted at us! Couldn't ride the Sage as there was a VIP inside (not sure who but there were police and stuff and we were told to move) but returned an hour later and got a line I'd been constantly thinking about for days and Angus got a line Tom won't be too stoked on!
Headed back to town as my coaster had fooked up and Angus managed to snap his chain on a low rail! Went to Denton's and got Angus sorted out with a chain, the workshop was closed so didint fix my coaster! Did this cool wallride anyway and re-filmed a fakie line and my coaster hates me for it! Just bought some grease today and gunna manually fix it up! Can't wait! Anyway, now I'm off home to do some work, have some tea and then go to work at 9 until 2am! Yay! Also worked last night which sucks! Well, smell you later!

Shopaholic!

Went into town after my lectures today for a new phone charger and ended up buying a £130 new phone! Yeah! The bad side is I spent all my money except £30 but the plus side is I got a swish new beast, pics later! Just realised I have to pay my water bill and my rent is due in 7 days! Shit!

BIG UPDATE!

Ok, here is the big update you have all been waiting for, haven’t had internet ‘cos we messed up last week!

Anyway I’ve done it with the most recent stuff at the top so you can skip out the old stuff if you want and focus on the here and now. Whatever you decide, enjoy!

Tuesday 23rd of October: Angus was supposed to be coming up tommorrow so I injected myself with an almost lethal quantitiy of steriods and fought 4 starving man eating lions to the death before pounding their carcasses into a comfortable chair and watching Fitlife, The Make and Left/right in quick succession after which I smashed my face through a window and ate the glass followed by pouring Relentless energy drinks into the wounds so as to get to the bloodstream faster and I was just trying to fall asleep whilst punching the wall with both fists and shouting "YEAH, BRING IT OWWWWNN" over and over when he called to say he wasn't coming! Stupid Angus, as well as paying a fortune on the black market for the lions I now have the RSPCA on my back and he isn't even coming, plus my face stings and I'm having an energy drink downer! Anyway, some real news below!


Sunday 21st of October: Pretty tired, didn’t ride much today but got 2 things filmed. Scott got none but was sending bangers all week so I’ll let him off! Just about to watch Family Guy season 6, maybe after some toast...

Friday 19th of October: Mine and Kathryn’s 3.5 year anniversary today! Woke her up at 3:30am because I lost everyone in town and slept at hers! Was up for my 9am lecture which wasn’t fun! Was soooo tired all day! Went riding because I wanted to ride this strange giant plate so met everyone at the park! Tom Bright, the Count, Pud and two others tagged along and we got the police called on us twice! We eventually got to the spot I wanted about 30 mins before I was meeting Kathryn and some guy took one run, fell in a bush and we were kicked off! Didn’t do anything, nothing filmed, very unproductive! Can’t see tommorrow being very productive either with Tom and Scott being hungover and me being this tired! My back kills, have to lower myself into seats and stuff so hopefully a good nights sleep will cure that! Won 2 teddies on the crane machine both with a tenner stuck to them so was good, first one was on my first go too! Came back for Tommy C’s house party and my housemate Jon is going home, moving out he says! So nobody is going to the party and apparently they have all gone to town anyway! Shudda just stayed at Kathryn’s, would have been much easier! Stupid phone!

Wednesday 17th of October: Nearly Halloween! Wow! Think I told someone Halloween only had one l the other day! Haloween! Whoops! Slept at Kat’s last night after she came and watched Meet the Robinson’s at mine! First time she has seen mine since we moved up! Pretty much a month late! Browsed the reduced section of Somerfield and blagged a nice garlic bread to go with the 2 pizzas for a pound I had got! Bargain! Bought some pringles, sweets (Kat bought them) and some Fanta and let the good times roll! Went back to hers and went on the internetbut whilst it was loading (it’s slow) I looked what games she had on her laptop! Played chess and tried to beat the computer, for about an hour! Not even kidding! Didn’t even win! Was only on intermediate aswell! So woke up there and had Frosted Shreddies and Berry Blast for breakfast, mmmm....

9am lecture until 10 (supposed to be 11). Hit up the library to catch up on my notes then had a 12-1! Bit more note catching up and me and Kathryn went to Mcdonalds for a healthy meal! I had a Big Mac meal and an extra Big Mac! We then went to the cinema and watched Resident Evil 3 (bought me some nachos...sooooooo nice) which was pretty ok, not what I was expecting and it made me jump a lot! Then headed back here and did a bit of coursework (have 4 pieces going on) and wrote this! Think that brings us all up to date, try update again soon! Oh, my housemate is a mess, his ironing is piled at the bottom of the bin which has overspilled onto it all, you can’t tell what is what! He has left a pizza covered in choc digestives along with about 10 plates in the dining room and even though he has the biggest room all his stuff has spilled out into the corridoor and into the front room! He sucks! Well that’s it! Bed time for me with a 9am til 3pm tommorrow! AGGGGHHHH!!!!

Sunday 14th of October: Felt like a bit of a bum today getting out of bed at 4:45pm but looking out the window thought “what else would I have done?” Weather is a joke right now and it’s not even winter!

Anyway, had a pizza, messed about and headed to work! Was supposed to be sat about only working on the printer but instead some stupid woman doesn’t turn up so I’m stuck selling key rings and hating it (only ‘cos I’m pissed off) and as a result make about £50, boss is pissed but I’m still borrowing his Jeep on Thurday to take Tom and Scott off roading! Yay!

Anyway, finish at two and ring the girls to share a taxi home and Laura says they all had a big arguement and she is on her own in town! Me and Joey (dude I was working with) go meet her and she is crying and that! So we go for something to eat and a taxi! At this point my housemate rings and says he needs Laura to let him into her house so he can speak to his girlfriend who is threatening to kill herself! We try get a taxi but there is a 40 min wait so we start to walk! I tell him to get a key off Lucy so he does, gets in the house and stuff kicks off! At this point we have got across one bridge and Laura needs a wee so we go into a uni building in search which is where I found this:

















The bat cave!

Then we get a call saying the police are on their way to pick us up as Jon’s girlfriend beat him up then called the cops! So our lift arrives with Jon covered in blood and halfway home some chavs are in the road next to an Ambulance and refuse to move when the cop car beeps, idiots! So copper gets out and a call comes on the radio saying they were beating up the ambulance crew and our guy gets to work on busting one of them (see pics below) and 3 other cars roll up! Eventful night! Then as we get home it turns out that the guy who’s girlfriend beat him up also got beaten up by three guys at the end of our street earlier in the day! Madness! So he’s had a crap day to say the least and I GOT A RIDE HOME IN A COP CAR! YEAH! But we chatted til like 5:20am and the others went to bed but I ain’t tired so went and rented My Super Ex-Girlfriend (ironic I know) and the new Pink Panther (on Kathryn’s recommendation) so I’ll let you know how it goes! Night night x x x x

07:40 – Haven’t slept a wink! It’s light outside and I think there is a party still going on next door! I’m only slightly tired but gunna have a wee and go to bed now!

Saturday: it’s not usual to write about the future, just follewed on from that 80s night! Listening to Green Day, Dookie. It’s still amazing!

Right, Angus is up on Saturday so depending on my alcohol consumption and amout of sleep might be a good day! Only time he is here until after the video so he should be sending bangers!

Then working at 9pm til 2am for a measly £25! YES!!!

Aniversary and party: Mine and Kat’s 3 and a half year on Friday. Does that really count? Not sure but it gives me an excuse to go to Pizza Hut and the cinema! Off to see Stardust (think it’s called that) which looks good then the 11pm bus home to go to Tommy C’s house party! Pretty much everyone off my course going and all my housemates and the girls so should be wild! Can’t wait!

80s night: Girl off my course is having an 80s night out tommorrow (Thursday18th) which should be cool, got my 80s gear ready, deciding whether or not to straighten my hair! Hmmm...

Also tommorrow is when Ride comes out, the one which supposedly has Paris Mosaic in it! Yay!

Also tommorrow..erm...something else special is happening...not sure what though. Oh, yeah, Scott is coming up! Riding a bit of street after my lectures hopefully unless Tom makes up some crazy reason why we must ride the park, damn park rat!

Bad news is that I’m stuck in lectures from 9am until 2pm! How much dos that suck? I know, poor me!

Riding day: Last Monday (15th) went home to pick up some things for my friends 80s night out (see above) and decided to get some clips with Angus and Fakie Dave! Turned into banger city with Angus throwing down moves left right and center and I got a line I was pretty stoked on! Went to film a gap wall ride and a fakie hop and got a new line on a spot I’d never rode before! Stoked! Then hit up Sainsburys for tea where Angus took ages to decide (ha ha) and got a BLT, a chicken salad bagguette, 3 energy drinks and 5 jam doughnuts for £2.11 or something nuts! Zoo was great apart from the kids all over the shop, some of which shred good for young ‘uns! Was trying this 3 fakie line and slammed good a few times! Frank, Waudby, Ryan and Angus got some good lines and Nick went soooo damn high to fakie from quarter to bank and flipped out! The whole Christmas vid is gunna be park with Tom and me probably having a whole bunch of lines at Exi park too! Oh well, can’t wait for it anyway!

Work: Can’t remember if I mentioned this but I have a job at Tiger Tiger taking pictures of people and making them into keyrings. It’s 9pm til 2am on a Saturday and some Mondays and get £25 for it! The money sucks but the job’s ok and I kinda need the money right now! Working this Saturday rather than going out with Angus, gutted!

Rachel’s b-day: Went home for my sisters birthday party a few Saturdays back which was cool ‘cos saw all my family and got some chocolate cake, had to go back up that night for work!

DVD rentals: might have wrote this before but there is a DVD place down the road from me which is free to sign up to and is all automated like a cash point that dispenses DVDs. You select the DVD on the screen and it pops out of a slot! Back catalouge DVDs are £1 for 7 days so heavy session on that recently! Erm...and that’s it, simple as!

Jon’s 21st: Went out for my housemate’s 21st after drinking out of a bucket at our house and just as we were leaving the first bar I bought 5 VKs in a bucket and Jon and his girlfriend wanted to go so I got everyone to help me but Jon’s girlfriend tipped the bucket on Joey (my other housemate) and a fight broke out between Joey and Jon which led to Jon being led away in cuffs and Joey doing a runner. Crazy, but the show must go on, birthday boy or not, so we went and got smashed! Don’t remember too much more of that one!

Back to uni: Upon seeing my lectures I was like What?!? as I have to be in at 10am on Monday and 9am every other day!!! I’m finding it hard but haven’t missed any lectures through my fault yet! Found out I needed to re-apply for my loan and that it would take 6-8 weeks to come, applied and still haven’t got it. I’m screwed! Agh!

Freshers week: Was pretty awesome, didn’t have any lectures or work to do, just a chill week with good times. My mum and dad brought me up to my new house with the help of AA route planner as I had no idea where it was. Didn’t feel brilliant in the car as went to Tad on the Friday for m ‘last night out.’ I was last to move in so got the smallest room but doesn’t bother me ‘cos I’m used to a small room! Unpacked all my stuff including my bike and my mum and dad took me for lunch. Not much out here in the way of sit down places but we decided finally on a little cafe on the corner of the girls’ street. Got myself some chips and gravy and a cheese and onion toastie. Was nice but we sat outside in the cold! My mum and dad then kindly took me shopping for food and was treated to luxuries I can only currently dream about such as brie, pate, sweets etc! After that my mum and dad went home and left me to adapt to my new envirionment. I think I got drunk.

Later in the week hit up the freshers fair for free stuff and returned with several spatulas, fridge magnets and leaflets and not as much food as I’d hoped! Last year they were giving out pot noodles, this year it was like chewing gum and chilli powder. My master plan on stocking up on free stuff for the year was foiled.

Anyway, freshers week was freshers week, got drunk probably too much and spend too much money I don’t have! Fantastic!

BIG UPDATE!

Coming tonight, I promise! Keep your eyes peeled!

Friday, 19 October 2007

Thursday, 18 October 2007

Just to keep you going...

Learnt opposite wall rides out of a quarter today so stoked on that! Tom was taking bitch runs and didn't do it so I thought what the heck, I'll just take a bitch! 2 mins later I was doing clean opposite wall rides right near the top! Yeah!
Really really a big update soon! I've wrote it, just need to take my laptop somewhere with wireless, watch this space!

Friday, 5 October 2007

Anyway, huge update on it's way, I ain't lying! I know I keep saying! Might even do it on the train on the way back up tommorrow...
Also watch out for my new musical talents heading this way soon...

Hold on!

Saturday, 15 September 2007

German!

Shit the bed, my blog is in German! Or the links at least! Aghh!!!

Drunk!

Alright guys! I'm drunk for the first time in a while! It's good, had a good night but know I'm gunna regret it in the morning! I always do! Can never tell if it's worth it! The grass is always greener on the other side!
Cant wait for uni but I'm so financially screwed, £600 overdrawn and spending £127 on bike parts this weekend! Not to mention my first months rent is 2 weeks late and I havent re-applied for my loan so probably won't get one! SHIT!
At least I got a bottom floor room!

Leeds again!

Got on the 11:20 train to Leeds this morning after my coco pops and went riding!
Was a good session, got a new line done (270 to fakie to 90 over a hip to fakie on a quarter to 270 back over) which felt sick (in a good way) and landed my line from yesterday for Tom's camera!
Got home and my new shoes had come, fit perfect too and look lovely! Check the picture below:

Leeds!

Today was ace! Woke up early (which gave me energy for the day) and had the last frosted shreddies! Went to Leeds and picked up my new t-shirts which look ace! Stopped for lunch at Mcdonald's on the way home courtesy of my mum and then Scott txt me asking if I wanted to go to Leeds! I was gunna say no and halfway through the no txt changed it to a yes because wanted to ride Hyde and The wallride! Funny thing is we didnt go to either but sessioned the red hips, the rail duck spot where I got a wallride and a rail duck, the red banks under the bridge where Scott got a 180 to fakie up the bank and then the playhouses where I learnt to 180 up them and then Millenium Square where I got this ace line (video below) where I learnt 2 new "tricks!"
Now I'm gunna have a hot shower, a nice pizza and go and see the woman! Perfect!
Oh, also went to St. James' hospital and pulled some cool mess about moves! Watch out for them soon!

Today!

Today was pretty ok! Slept in til 3, had my favourite cereal (frosted shreddies), and went to the park! Dialed in the transfer and kinda learnt tucked no-handers but don't take my hands off much! More like a tucked let go of the bars!
Then went to Kathryn's for a really nice tea of chicken and potatoes and curried stuff and it was just like a cool buffet type thing!
Then text H man and he was heading to Hastings and said he was at Blyth services which I thought was odd as there is a Blyth in Newcastle but then thought he might have come straight from Scotland or summat! Anyway was hassling him to take me because he is off to do a Bruce Crisman interview and really wanted to go! He was in Blyth down south near Nottingham so that was a no!
Went to see Run, FatBoy, Run which was good! Some bits really funny and all in all a good film!
Had Nachos too! Mmmmmmmmmmmm, I love Nachos!
Then came home and now gunna watch the Bourne Identity!
Might be going to Sue's for lunch tommorrow! Really wanna get drunk! Quite bad! I'm a damn alcoholic, ha ha! Not really. You have to go to meetings to be a real alcoholic!
My brother hurt his back today at football and went to hospital, he's now winging about only eating a Mcdonald's and quarter of an orange today and talking crap which is quite off-putting so will write tommorrow! Still need to do my holiday write up! Can't wait for my shoes to come! Etc...

Chill day!

Had a pretty good day today actually! My Fenton session on my own didn't work as my little sister Rachel and brother Chris came with me but was still a good, but short, session and learnt the spine to box take off transfer after way too long and it is suprisingly easy! Rachel started whining she was bored so took her home and read my book for a while and went on the internet! Was gunna ride to Kathryn's house to pick up some dvds (for exercise) but my mum and dad asked if I wanted to go to Xscape with them and Sophie and Rachel so I did! Picked up the first two Bourne films and the second series of American Dad off Kathryn on the way and then headed to Franky and Bennys. Had a garlic bread and cheese pizza for starters and a calzone al pollo for main! Then hit up Cosmo Golf which was really weird, was winning til the second to last hole which took me 13 goes (unlucky for some, like me...) and lost by loads. We then did quazar, well, just the kids, which was ace 'cos there was only three of us in there! I won, obviously and then we did dodgems and arcade games and my mum beat me at a shooting game! A shooting game!
We then headed home and now I'm gunna watch American Dad all night! Yeah!

Vids and that!

Just watched Fly Bikes, Uno and Dos BMX videos back to back! Uno is really good with an odd bit about crates and how useful they are at the start and this super rad uber slow motion bit at the end which really makes you appreciate how hard some stuff is to do and how knarly some falls are! It’s also got these ace snow bikes which look soooo fun! Might buy this dvd.

Dos wasn’t as good as nothing really sticks out except this cool snake run and these cool toboggans for going down hill, nothing riding wise so I won’t buy this!

Ordered some new shoes today too, hope they have them in stock!

No holiday write up yet, sorry.

Also check out this rad video:

Just going to Fenton park tommorrow by myself to chill out and just ride. No stress, no beef, just me on my bike. Should be good, can’t wait!

Write tommorrow!

Holidays and such!

Just got back from my holiday this morning at 8am and slept until 6:30pm! It was a good holiday and a great chance to relax before heading back to uni! More about this tommorrow when I'm less tired though!
Just finished wading through all my myspace, facebook and hotmail messages and read the new Agenda zine which is really good! They just get better every time and I love the layout on this one too! Gunna check Streetphire then get to bed, riding Fenton tommorrow and then gunna update after that!

Past few days!

Fully just shat my pants! Was trying to type and it was doing numbers and stuff, thought I had a virus but only scanned it last night and then I thought my keyboard was screwed but then realised a new light was on and it turns out my mum had turned on the num lock when she was on it last night! Phew!
Anyway here are the past few days, been slacking:

Wednesday: Woke up, had coco pops and grapes for breakfast (a suprisingly nice combo) and then went to the golf driving range with my brother and hit a bucket each! Pretty fun! Decided to be cool and bomb my car over this little dip in the road but ended up smashing the front end of my car into the ground and causing the cd to stop, so that was pretty fun!
Then kinda messed about and went to Church Fenton skatepark with Tom that night and getting back into doing the spine and hip a bit! That's about all I can remember except I ate two whole bunches of grapes!

Thursday (yesterday): Just bummed about and went to the skatepark for a bit, Gaz and his crew were there and were like 360 that and do the spine etc so I obliged them as much as possible but lack of fluids and the sunshine made me dizzy so I went home do bum about some more! Saw Gavin's (little kid down the street) new puppy which can almost fit in one of my hands and had a little hold etc, pretty cute but don't tell anyone I said that! Tried to watch Bounre Identity which I borrowed off Kathrn's brother whilst he is away but there is no disc, he took it with him as well as the whole first season of My Name is Earl and the second season of American Dad so I have just borrowed a load of boxes, damn!
So I borrowed my sisters laptop and watched Apocalypto which was suprisingly pretty good! I thought it would be wank! Then I slept.

Today: I woke up about 1:30, had coco pops and showered (not at the same time) and went to Tad with my mum. Transfered £150 to her account to pay for the rest of my holiday and then went to Sue's and bought a large cheese and spring onion sandwich, some sour cream and chive crisps (best ones) and an iced tea, pretty much a perfect lunch (minus chocolate brownie which they didn't have) and ate it by the river in the sunshine! Then went to Sainsbury's to buy my dad a birthday cake for tonight and saw Jackass 2 for £5.99 and snapped it up (even though I'm broke). Got to the checkout and had to show my bloody I.D! Agh! On the way back to the car was gunna get a hair cut but we were running late and there was a queue so I'm getting it cut tommorrow! Not short though, just need a bit off for my holiday! Now I'm home and about to watch Jackass 2, which is ace and then go to my Grandma and Grandad's for tea I think and then sleep at Kat's 'cos she is back, yay!

See you later x x x x x x

Well that's about it apart from, I'M NOT WORKING TOMMORROW!!! In fact, today could have been my last day until Christmas (although I have asked for too more cos I need the money) and to top that off it went really quickly!!
Supposed to be riding Fenton with Tom now but he is driving a Merc and it's pretty much dark now so doesnt look good! In a bit!

Time to get fat!

Bit of a bum about day today too! Was woken up at around 1pm when my mum showed her friend my bedroom with me asleep in it! Although before that I woke up momentarily to say happy birthday to my dad, because it is his birthday you see!
So, cleaned and vaced my car and then went to feed Kathryn's cat! It looks like her Gran had been in already but put some food outside anyway!
The watched Mr. Deeds which is much better than I remember and then went to the White Horse for tea as it's my dad's b-day! Had deep fried brie (can't get enough of that stuff, it's soooooo nice) for starter and Chilli con carne for main, suprisingly I was too full for desert but don't really like any of the deserts there anyway!
Then came home and my brother rang to ask me to pick him up, so I did and then came home to watch "Blood Diamond" which I'm gunna do in a sec.
Got work tommorrow which means up early! Work and waking up early both suck!

Peppermint with a twist of berry!

As mentioned before I haven't really done much today! Got dressed at about 5pm when I went to feed Kathryn's cat. Took Sophie and Rachel with me who wouldn't stop picking up the poor cat! Then came home, read my book a bit, listened to music on my new mp3 player whilst resting my eyes before having tea of jacket potatoes, breaded chicken, corn and chips. A bit odd but ok. Also had some really nice warm bread with melted Lurpak! Love that stuff! Might have some toast for supper.
Then watched the Simpson's movie which has just finished! Was okay, expected it to be a bit more funny but on the whole it kinda worked for me!
Now my brother just gave me some peppermint chewing gum with a twist of berry! What the hell is up with that! Oh well, write tommorrow!

Today sucked a bit!

I told Tom last night that I didn't want to go to Interact and still recieved a text this morning asking if I wanted to go! I said no so he decided to invite all the York boys to Fenton and then ring me saying they needed a lift to Interact skatepark! After Frank rang me and asked nicely I decided to go, even though I'm very broke after buying a holiday!
So got up and my mum was like "tidy your room before you go" so I did. Then she wanted my bedding and Chode was constantly ringing me trying to hurry me up even though I wasn't going until 5 minutes previously! I had a shower and put my bedding down and my mum was like "where are the buttons on it?" I said they fell off and she said I had to sew them back on before I could go, all the while all the York guys were giving me shit because they wanted a lift so I just said no and walked out! She is major pissed now!
Anyway sat in the car and was debating whether or not to actually go because I was broke, pissed off and was just being used for a lift even though I didnt want to go but decided I would because I was taking Fakie Dave and he is a nice guy! Got in a little strop and threw my bike and shouted about being used for a lift but Dave and Mat were cool and calmed me down, Scott a bit too! Then I was supposed to follow Tom to the park but he bombed off like usual, can't believe he couldn't even go slow so I could follow! He is a major dick sometimes as he never thinks of anyone but himself!
Anyway, enough ranting for now, he is ok most of the time! So got there and it was shitter than I though as it was pretty busy and the new mini wasnt even built yet, they also didnt serve food which was crap!
Had a good session in the bowl and on the micro and also had a good time watching this KHE pro ride and 720 the volcano and flairs etc but apart from that it was shit like I thought!
On the way home we stopped at Spar and Tom was supposed to show me the way onto the motorway but when Dave was paying for his stuff, well actually just leaving the shop, Tom decided to speed off and leave me so thanks Tom! Real good friend! This resulted in getting major lost and ending up in the shadier parts of Bradford and a 3 hour trip to York! The drive wasn't so bad though as Waudby was suprisingly interesting and not weird and Dave was just being funny and conversations flowed easily and a lot of jokes told so was laughing for most of it! So thanks to Dave and Waudby for being cool!
Left Waudby's after he showed me a really cool design he has done for Counteract and stopped at Mcdonalds where I got a Big Mac meal and some cheese dippers! Them things are good!
Then stopped off to feed Kathryn's cat which finaly showed up covered in sticky buds and ate some tuna! Then drove home and here I am, writing this!
Definatley need to sleep in tommorrow! Plan to watch videos and sleep all day and if I'm woken up by family just gunna go to Kathryn's empty house and do it there!
Well that's all for today, on the whole it sucked but gunna watch American Dad now to make up for it!
Probably write tommorrow but won't be much to write about no doubt!
Oh almost forgot, on the way back from Tad a rabbit ran out under my car but went straight through the middle I think, heard a little bump but it was probably just its head on the exhaust!
Will confirm if it is dead tommorrow when I get back from feeding the cat!
Man I can't wait to go on holiday! Also can't wait to go back to uni! Living with rules sucks!

8 lives left!

Damn rain! Ruined plans to go to Middlebrough tommorrow!
Just listening to my new mp3 player which is actually quite good! Not sure how long the battery lasts but it is really small and light which is perfert for me considering the amount of keys I have in my pockets!
Anyway! Today I went to work until 3pm! Didn't get my break until 2:50 which sucked so ate it quick and walked to Argos for this mp3! Got it fine, no problems and walked to the station and went home! Read my book on the way home "When Angels Weep?" By Wilbur Smith which is pretty good so far! I love Wilbur Smith!
Then met Scott at the station and took him to Tadcaster skatepark for a quick session! Was pretty good actually, no jump box though!
Then Scott was late for tea so took him home then went back to feed Kathryn's cat! It didn't show up again!
After this I watched 3 bmx vids with Scott and Tom before riding Tad in the dark at midnight, it rained 5 minutes after getting there but I got a cool coaster move first!
On the way home I was driving through Ulleskelf when some crazy cat ran out into the road and into my car! I heard an awful thud noise and felt like I hit something so I slammed on the brakes to see if it was dead! Looked in the mirror to see the little bugger getting up and running across the road! That was one lucky cat, probably ran into the side of my door! Or as Tom reckons, it lost one of it's nine lives! If it had died I'm not sure what I would do, probably just thrown it in the bushes!
Also booked a holiday today! Leaving a week on Monday and going to Corfu with Kathryn for 7 days! It's 2 days after she gets back from Spain but she doesn't mind! Should be ace! Got a pool and really close to the beach and town! Only problem being that the flight back is at 2:20am! Damn! Ha ha, nevermind! Means I'm only working next Tuesday and that might be it until Christmas! Yeeeeessssss! Although just spent all my money on the holiday! Ha ha!
Gunna watch American Dad then bed! Don't really wanna ride an indoor park tommorrow! Would rather sleep all day! Well Night night!
Also gunna post this rad picture of Scott at Tad park doing an air tommorrow maybe so watch out for that! So much for writing this like a diary!
That was one lucky cat...

You get 3 years son!

Claimed my free mp3 player today which Mcdonalds gave me for selling them 3 years of my life! Pretty cool little thing although it has to charge for 5 hours before I can play with it! I hate that!
Now I've almost caught up with trends! Maybe I will get an ipod after 5 years...

Daddy's got a brand new bag!

I love it when you don't ride for a few days and then come back and learn something new! In this case it was footjam whips which I have been after for years! Check the video below!
