(Anyone who really pays attention will know that's also the title from my latest dA journal - but I'm running out of inspiration so meh. And anyway - anyone who didn't know does now. This is roughly the same journal entry - but with a little more detail. And that history homework I reminded myself to do? Boring as watching paint dry. *deep sigh*)
A friend of mine, STIXX, took me to a Circus of Horrors on Thursday night and it was fucking awesome. The line-up started when we went in, even. There were two guys dressed up as vampires, and I want their job!! This is basically the conversation they had with anyone who came in:
Audience Member: *gives ticket*
Vamp: Row H! Follow!
Audience Member: *is led to row H*
Vamp: Sit down!
Audience Member: *sits*
Vamp: *gives ticket back*
Audience Member: Err... thanks.
Vamp: There! *walks off muttering* Twat.
Which had the audience in stiches, they were just so funny! There were two of them, as I think I mentioned before, a skinny one who spoke with a really heavy cockney accent and another one who was a bit older who spoke with a lesser cockney accent than the other. Anyway - there were three lads behind us who looked about ten if that and it was obvious they'd all told their mothers they were sleeping at each other's houses just so they could go, so they were making the most of it. The skinny vamp came over to tell 'em to be quiet, and one of them stuck his fingers up at said vamp, who got pissed by now, nicked the kid's sweets and yelled 'SHARE!' which made STIXX and I howl with laughter as he turned to walk off muttering 'Bastards.'. By now the vamp was practically sitting on the back of my chair so I was looking at his arse as if to say 'Get the hell off me!!' to which STIXX started laughing even more. The vamp then turned round and went 'Is there a problem?' and I went in my best cockney accent (which is really quite pathetic, but it worked) 'Nao, but yer wer sittin' on me 'ed!' - I just got told to face the front. ^^; Which I did, after sticking my finger up at him as he was walking away. Twit. =P But we love him.
There were some really funky acts - a male contortionist who was rolling around (literally) at the start, a female contortionist who was doing some really cool yoga-type-moves, like balancing on her forearms with her feet in front of her head and stuff like that. A guy called Gary Stretch who turned into Batman by clipping his extra-stretchy skin together with bulldog clips chained together (erm, oww?!)! A midget guy who did some really unsanitary things with glowing poles and a hoover... (Use your imagination to it's worst. =P) A girl who did some acrobatics in the air with red ribbons attached to a harness which left the whole hall like (OoO) that. A guy who was on a rope using it as a swing who almost jumped to his death, a guy who limbo-ed under a bar which was on fire held up by two beer bottles which amazed me to no end. They cut the ring-leader type guy in two near the end, and pulled the midget's hands off. ^^ It was really funny 'cos one of the songs near the end was sung by the ring-leader guy and he sung 'First I was afraid...' and a guy in the audience yelled 'I was petrified!', the music stopped and the ring-leader guy yelled 'Oi! I'm the fucker who's been cut in half here!' which left the audience in hysterics.
I got a shirt in the interval which bears the slogan: 'Please Give Blood. Vampires are an endangered species.' Don't you just love it?? ^^
Anyway - enough about that, if you want to find out more here's the website: Circus of Horrors
Any of you paying close attention, or maybe not so much, to my life recently will know I haven't been single, very much not single. Well note the past tense - 'cos I fucking am now.
Friday night most of my friends went to a disco at a local school, but seen as I'd been to the Circus of Horrors the previous night I decided to go home, I was tired (and it meant I didn't have to get the tickets off the school's version of the black market). So, I was picked up an hour earlier than usual, got home, and came on the computer - as I usually do. At exactly 17:27pm (I checked the clock on the comp when the phone was ringing - not knowing who it'd be at this time.) and heard the voice of my girlfriend on the other end of the phone. I can't exactly remember what we said but, in short, it was a very brief conversation and she broke up with me, after five months of devotion it was over in less than 60 seconds. I put the phone down, stunned. Logged off, ran to my room, stayed there for a period of about two minutes, then went and logged back on the computer. If I've ever needed MSN any more in my life please note me when. Luckily enough for me the four most important people to me, Shadow, Surly, Fox and Nikki were all online at that said time - and I got a lot of support from them. I don't know if she's reading this or not so I'm going to keep my current status vague, but I'm getting over it a lot quicker than I thought I would be. Life's too short, and, now I think about it, we were too different. So I'm single again - yay! Although I ain't lookin' yet - Nikki's on about taking me to a gay pride event in June/July with another friend of mine, Jabberz, which should be fun, if you catch my drift. ;)
To get over the initial shock of being dumped, and because I had money to spend and my “mother” had credit cards - I decided to hit the shops for a bit of retail therapy, completely unlike me, I know. o.o’’ After finding the receipt amongst all the crap in the kitchen (near the eggs), I was driven to Currys to explain to the guys I hadn’t in fact broken my mp3 and please-will you-repair-it-*puppy eyes*? They just asked what was wrong and gave me a new one! I was like “o.o’’ … Fwee!” So, now I’ve found my USB cable and charger thingie, (yes, I lost them…) I’ll put all my old music back on it tonight. It’s charging upstairs in my extraordinarily messy room right now, and I’ll probably go check on it when I’ve finished this post. Anyway - shopping and yesterdayness… I got Adobe Photoshop Elements from WHSmiths for £50, umm… a new black (and purry soft) wristband bearing a white Chinese dragon. I know I always said Chinese dragons looked like worms with legs, and they do, but I like this. I don’t even know if it’s a Chinese dragon but whatever he is he’s pretty, and very, very purry soft. Some ‘wrist warmers’ I.e. soft white netting arm things covered in black netting which go up to my elbowsish. Super good thing: They cover my palms. Big yay! (I swear I'm developing an obsession with wrist-thingies.) Err… Oooh I bought the last Savage Garden album I needed to complete my collection: ‘Affirmation’ so now I have them all. (Although one of them isn’t technically mine… I borrowed it off someone who isn’t getting it back for a good long while.) Some black nail varnish and eyeliner (which I proceeded to almost blind myself with… Ow.)
Aaaanyway long story short I got some new stuff and am ready to start life again as a new person. With new stuff. ^^ So yay on my part. I’m a strong kid - life’s a bastard but I’m worse. =P It runs. I stay.
Thanks to all who were there for me. ^^ I love you guys!! (Shadow, Surly, Fox, Nikki, Emma etc.) xxxx
