THIS GIRL IS 22 TODAY AND SHE'S A FACKIN...

NEW BLAZER FROM TOP MAN AND JEDWARD

I HAVE FINALLY BITTEN THE BULLET AND BOUGHT MYSELF A TOPMAN BLAZER. THIS ONE IS PARTICULARLY FIT AND REMINDS ME OF WHAT NUMBER 6 FROM THE PRISONER USED TO WEAR. IT ALSO FULLY PREPARED ME FOR WHAT WAS POSSIBLY THE BEST NIGHT I'VE EVER HAD AT G-A-Y HEAVEN - JEDWARD'S FIRST UK PERFORMANCE SINCE THEIR DEPARTURE FROM X FACTOR (PHOTOS TO FOLLOW). WITH BLAZER, HIGHLIGHTS AND STRATOSPHERIC QUIFF IN TOW, OFF WE WENT TO HEAVEN, WHERE WE SCREAMED LIKE GIRLS, DANCED LIKE DIVAS (DIVA!) AND BOPPED OUR BOOTIES TO BURKE (LIKE BAD BOYS) IN THE RnB ROOM.

RIA BEER - HAIR HITLER


I'D BEEN DEBATING FOR A WHILE ABOUT WHETHER GOING A BIT BLONDER ON TOP, AND WITH THE IMMINENT ARRIVAL OF A CERTAIN RIA BEER (YES, AS IN, THE REAL RIA BEER OF RIABEER BLOGSPOT FAME) DECIDED TO MAKE THE MOST OF THE FACT THAT SHE IS A QUALIFIED BARNETT COLOURER. BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS HAVE BEEN FOILED ONTO MY SCALP. I'M RATHER TAKEN WITH THEM. SHE DEPLOYED AN AVANT -GARDE HAIR DRESSING TECHNIQUE BY HAVING AN ASSISTANT ON HAND TO HAND HER HER FOILS, AND MID DYEING SHE WOULD RANDOMLY STRADDLE ME (I WARNED HER OF POTENTIAL SEXUAL ERUPTIONS - COVER THOSE EYES.)

THANKS GIVING VIRGINS


SO, NOT BEING AMERICAN OR ANYTHING, I'VE NEVER HAD OR EVEN REALLY KNOWN WHAT THANKS GIVING IS. TOUCHARD'S NEWEST ACQUISITION, ALAINA CRYSTAL OF NEW YORK IMPARTED A BIT OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT IT, AND WHAT THE TRADITIONS ARE. IN BETWEEN BEING PISSED ON IN THE RAIN, HAVING TO SORT OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON ON SATURDAY NIGHT, GETTING READY FOR JEDWARD (YES, JEDWARD AT G.A.Y - SEPERATE POST TO FOLLOW) AND GENERAL SATURDAY NIGHT FROUGHTNESS, WE SAT AND GAVE THANKS FOR ALL THINGS AMERICAN. THE DINNER TOOK ABOUT 4 HOURS TO MAKE BUT IT WAS ONE OF THE FITTEST THINGS I'VE EATEN SINCE BEING A STUDENT. AMAZING. AND THERE WERE YUM FACES ALL ROUND.

MEGA LOLZ


THE JOINERS ON WEDNESDAY

ON WEDNESDAY WE TREATED OURSELVES TO A MID WEEK KNEES UP IN THE GEORGE AND DRAGON AND THEN THE JOINERS. WE ARRIVED EARLY TO OUR FAVOURITE GAY HAUNT, WHICH MEANT THERE WERE ALL OF THREE OTHER PEOPLE IN THERE, THE BAR STAFF AND A TERRIFYING LOOKING TRANNY (WELL, I THINK SHE WAS A TRANNY). IT WAS A PEDESTRIAN EVENING AT BEST, BUT THERE WERE SOME NICE PHOTOS TAKEN, INCLUDING THE BEST PICTURE EVER OF STEPH. CAREFUL BOYS, SHE'S A SEXUAL PREDATOR.

EAR FASHION


ASH AND I WENT TO CAMDEN MARKET ON SATURDAY FOR A MOSEY. THEY'VE COMPLETELY CHANGED IT. GONE IS THE GENERAL FEELING OF A SHANTY TOWN TO BE REPLACED WITH ESCALATORS AND LIFTS ALL UNDERCOVER. CYBER DOG IS MORE LIKE A MUSEUM FULL OF ITALIAN TOURISTS. HOWEVER, WE DID STILL GET OURSELVES SOME FETCHING EARWEAR. IN NEEDING TO SPEND OVER £10 TO USE OUR CARDS TO PAY, ASH DECIDED TO BUY THIS WHOPPER OF THING. ITS A BIT LIKE A BRANCH COMING OUT OF HIS EAR.

THE NEW OXFORD STREET CROSSING

THE NEW OXFORD STREET CROSSING WAS UNVEILED A COUPLE OF WEEKS BACK. ME AND ASH WENT DOWN TO CHECK IT OUT YESTERDAY. ITS A BIT CHAOTIC WHEN YOU ALL CROSS AT ONCE. ITS QUITE AN ODD FEELING BEING SURROUNDED BY LOTS OF CARS WHICH ARE BIDING THEIR TIME TO COME STORMING TOWARDS YOU. AND LOTS OF GREEN MEN. EVERYWHERE.

THE CUCKOO IN MY BED THIS MORNING


X FACTOR

MAKEMEAOFFER IS PROUDLY SUPPORTING STACEY. I LIVE WITH SOMEONE WHO WENT TO THEATRE SCHOOL WITH HER, AND ALTHOUGH SHE'S APPARENTLY PUTTING ON THE WAY SHE TALKS A BIT TO MUCH, WE STILL LOVE HER ANYWAY. SHE LOOKED LIKR GOD DURING HER PERFORMANCE OF TAKE THAT'S 'RULE THE WORLD' THE OTHER NIGHT. AND SHE HAS THAT AMAZING UPSIDE DOWN MOUTH. MY NEICE MADE THE ASTUTE COMPARISON BETWEEN STACEY AND ONE OF THE CHICKENS FROM CHICKEN RUN.
NICE.

CARNABY STREET CHRISTMAS LIGHTS - VERDICT

I DON'T CARE WHO SWITCHED THEM ON. WHOEVER THOUGHT A FLOATING PINK REINDEER WAS A GOOD CHRISTMAS DECORATION WAS WRONG. IT LOOKED LIKE GAY PRIDE DONE ON THE CHEAP [WHICH MEANS IT LOOKS REALLY CHEAP.]

BEARD UPDATE

27.11.09

AN UPDATE IS COMING

VERY SOON. I'VE BEEN VERY HERMITISH THIS WEEK.

23.11.09

1:25 SCALE MODEL: ORCHESTRA PIT, COCHRANE THEATRE, HOLBORN

A MUCH BETTER, MORE ACCURATELY TO SCALE MODEL, AND WHOLLY MORE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PIT. THE BLACK RECTANGLE IS THE ACTUAL SPACE THE PERFORMERS WILL PERFORM ON.

TO BE[ARD] OR NOT TO BE[ARD]

I POSTED THIS PICTURE ON FACEBOOK YESTERDAY AND I'VE BEEN TOLD BY SOME PEOPLE TO ABORT WITH THE BEARDED LOOK. I'M FACING A DILEMA. I QUITE LIKE THE ROUGHNESS BUT IS THIS LOOKING MORE 'PUBESCENT TEENAGE BOY ATTEMPTS TO GROW BEARD' RATHER THAN SOMETHING ALTOGETHER BETTER? IS THIS THE WORST FASHION FAUXPAS I'VE MADE SINCE [ADMITEDLY ONLY LAST WEEKS] JEDWARD STYLED BARNETT?

17.11.09

IS THIS THE BEST PHOTO I'VE EVER TAKEN?

THE VIEW FROM MY WINDOW DURING A STORMY NIGHT LAST WEEK, AT ONLY ABOUT 6 O'CLOCK IN THE EVENING. AMAZING.

WHO'S GOT THOSE YUM FACES ON?


SO ON SATURDAY, I PLAYED HOST FOR A COME DINE WITH ME SPECTACULAR. SALMON, LEMON AND BUTTER WERE ON THE MENU WITH ASPARAGUS, PURPLE SPROUTING BROCOLI, MANGE TOUT AND NEW POTATOES WITH HOLLANDAISE. YUM FACES ALL ROUND. CATHERINE SUPPLIED BROWNIES WITH WALNUTS IN. THERE WAS LOTS OF WINE. LOTS AND LOTS OF WINE. AND THEN X FACTOR. NICE.

MIDSUMMER - A COSTUME UPDATE



PRELIMINARY COSTUME ROUGHS FOR THE MIDSUMMER'S PROJECT. THESE HAVE ALREADY BEEN DISCARDED, HOWEVER THEY ARE QUITE NICE. THE COCOON AND STRAIGHT JACKET CONCEPTS REMAIN BUT ARE PROBABLY GOING TO BE JUST WHITE LEOTARDS NOW. STILL, PROGRESS ON THE MIDSUMMER'S PROJECT IS MOVING REALLY FAST NOW AS WE HAVE A COMPLETE DESIGN DEADLINE NEXT TUESDAY FOR PITCHING TO THE COCHRANE TECHNICIANS. I'LL HAVE ALL SORTS OF MIDSUMMER'S THINGS TO POST UP NEXT WEEK. ALL GOING WELL SO FAR THOUGH.

THE MONSTER TRUCK DOWNSTAIRS

IF YOU FREQUENTED TOUCHARD OVER THE WEEKEND, OR INDEED WERE ANYWHERE NEAR CHART STREET IN OLD STREET THIS WEEKEND, YOU WOULD HAVE NOTICED THE MONSTER TRUCK OWNED BY OUR NEIGHBOURS WHICH LOOKED AS THOUGH IT HAD BEEN BATTERED IN MUD. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY HAD DONE EXACTLY WITH THE BEAST BUT IT WAS PROPERLY SOAKED.

YES, EVEN MORE CELEB WATCH!!!

"IF HE INVITES YOU BACK FOR A POOL PARTY, JUST SAY NO." TEXT RESPONSE FROM SISTER ON SEEING MR. BARRYMORE. ONE GOT THE FEELING HE DESPERATELY WANTED BARROWMAN TO POINT HIM OUT TO THE WHOLE AUDIENCE, BUT HE NEVER DID.



KEBAB IN BIN

TAKEN BY MYSELF, HUNGOVER THIS WEEKEND.

LA CAGE ON FRIDAY [TITS WERE SIGNED]



SO, FRIDAY NIGHT, ASH, HIS MUM, HIS AUNT AND I FREQUENT THE PLAYHOUSE ON NORTHUMBERLAND AVENUE AND WATCH LA CAGE AUX FOILES STARRING NONE OTHER THAN MR JOHN BARROWMAN. I WAS STRUCK BY THE OVERAL PRO GAY RIGHTS STANCE IT TOOK, AS I DIDN'T KNOW A THING ABOUT THIS MUSICAL BEFORE I SAW IT. I WAS ALSO SURPRISED BY HOW MUCH I ENJOYED THIS, AND REALISED THAT THERE IS A REASON WHY JOHN BARROWMAN IS ON EVERYTHING - HE'S FUNNY, LOUD, WITTY AND ACTUALLY A BLOODY GOOD SINGER. THE OVERAL STAGING WAS A BIT NAFF ACTUALLY, THOUGH THERE WAS SOME NEAT SET TRANSITIONS WITH A MOVING TABLE. THE COSTUMES WERE THE USUAL SHOW GIRLD TRANNY STUFF.

AT THE END, HE STOOD AT THE DOORS COLLECTING MONEY FOR CHILDREN IN NEED, WHERE ASH'S AUNT AND MOTHER ATTEMPTED TO GRAB HIM IN FOR A SNOG. HE TOLD THEM NO, "I MIGHT GET SWINE FLU. I'VE GOT 8 MORE OF THESE TO DO. RESTRAIN YOURSELVES." AS MY DAD SAID LATER, "HE DOESN'T LIKE WOMEN ANYWAY. IT WAS JUST AN EXSCUSE."

THE GIRL WITH THE BLONDE HAIR GOT HIM TO SIGN HER TITS.

THERE'S AN UPDATE COMING ON

EVENTFUL WEEKEND, JOHN BARROWMAN, DINNER FOR FOUR AND DOCTOR WHO. MAX OUT.

12.11.09

GAGA DOES A MAKEMEAOFFER ?

IT WOULD SEEM AS THOUGH GAGA'S BEEN CHECKING OUT THE BLOG, FOR SHE'S COMPLETELY COPIED ITS A STITCH UPS RED CAPITAL LETTER HEAD STYLE FOR HER NEW SINGLE AND ALBUM COVER. WHAT A MAX OUT BI[A]TCH. ON THE OTHER HAND, CHECK OUT HER AWESOME NEW VID: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACm9yECwSso

ADITHIO NOVIELLO TAKES A GOOD PICTURE


SPIDER

THIS SPIDER DECIDED TO CRAWL UP THE WALL THE OTHER NIGHT. IT MET A STICKY END COURTESY OF ASHLEY'S AMBUSH WITH MY LUNCH BOX LID.

MODEL BOX UPDATE FOR MIDSUMMER PROJECT


MODEL MAYHEM: BEFORE THE THIRD DIRECTORS TUTORIAL TOMORROW (THIRD! ALREADY?!) HE WANTS US TO HAVE A MORE TANGIBLE SENSE OF WHAT HAPPENS IN OUR SCENE. I'VE CONSTRUCTED A 1:25 SCALE MODEL OF THE PIT SPACE AND USED SOME TRACING PAPER IN PLACE OF THE GAUZE. THIS IS SORT OF THE THE EFFECT I WANT TO CREATE OVERAL. I'M NOW IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING SOME SCALE MODEL PEOPLE, WHICH IS SO HARD. I'M NOT ENTIRELY SURE HOW ACCURATE MY MODEL IS AS GETTING INTO THE SPACE WITH SUFFICIENT TIME TO MEASURE IT ACCURATELY HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL DO FOR NOW.

NEW THINGS


I HAVE A NEW COAT COURTESY OF AMERICAN APPAREL WHICH LOOKS A BIT RIDICULOUS, BUT IS SO BLOODY WARM I DON'T CARE. I ALSO HAVE A NEW PAIR OF BOOTIES COURTESY OF TOP MAN. NICE.
