  1. Hi this is a long shot, does anyone have a DVD copy of the film December Bride? it is an Irish film and for some reason I just cannot get hold of it here, tried LoveFilm with no luck. Thanks T&B Just to add that I dont want to buy this film new as it is expensive - I just need to watch it for an essay I am writing!
  2. It is all down to the individual - I would say out of about ten mates at school who were into dabbling with a bit of light drugs like cannabis, about 2 of them fell by the wayside onto the hard drugs, however most people I know struggle with the lure of the booze! It is booze that we all need to gain a reality check on, so many people I know still drink far too much, get too drunk etc and generally abuse alchohol - Booze is present in alsmost every social situation us adults go to - it is just so omni-present but people are getting terrified over a minority of people using illegal drugs. I don't understand it. I grew up in the IOM where booze became a natural part of life from the age of 14 - and I could honestly say that until about 3 years ago I binge drank at least once a week since the age of about 16. I didnt realise the damage I could do mentally or physically just because it is so acceptable. Infact people think it is hilarious that you "got hammered" and you are often applauded for your behaviour! I know so many people who struggle with alcohol problems and I have seen what evil drink does to "normal" people, often in a short space of time - it is heartbreaking. I treat alcholol with fear now I really do - I see it for what it is and see how seductive it can be - it really is, along with smoking, the biggest addiction out there - sod the illegal drugs, they are minor compared to booze and fags. It amazes me that the perception of this is still not out there.
  3. ahaaaa found it - it was the vampire bit that i just remember enabled a better search - the song is Empire by Sinead O'Connor!! I had it on tape years ago and wanted to download it!
  4. Nah I do like that song though but that's not it, the song I am thinking about has a lyric about England being a vampire???
  5. Hi - I am trying to seek out the name of a tune that I heard years ago - it is a sort of dub track and she is singing on it about England the Colonizer, it also has a bloke from Africa singing on it - it is driving me mad not to be able to find it! It might have been her with the Afro-Celt sound System but I just can't seem to find it - any help?? Thanks
  6. more pics if you're interested:
  7. Got call from boss this morn to not come into work!! So nice on a Monday morn, went outside and realised just how messed up the roads are! I had about 3 inches of snow outside my door! Might not be in work tomorrow either! Aawwwww shame! Here is picture from the mews at the back of my flat..
  8. in bed recovering from food poisoning - totally wiped me out, and head is banging due to a need for re-hydration but still cant keep the re-hydration salts down.
  9. We dont have an official work do - my boss is atheist and is a total bah humbug. We not even allowed decs up in the office, totaly boring. We dont so much get a bottle of wine or some chocolate! We have organised our own xmas do - we going to Dirty Martini (a new york style coctkail bar) and then onto a brasserie in Covent Garden. It has been quite amusing the last couple of weeks seeing all people going to their doos in the city etc, seeing people on train with black ties and ballgowns and then seeing them on the way home, totally pissed! When I was in the IOM recently I had a Xmas dinner at the Miners Tavern - reallly really good, massive portions, freindly service, cosy and warm, just top notch!
  10. If you look on Gumtree sometimes people rent their family homes out?
  11. Hi All Could someone send to me - I can't seem to find it now it has been taken down, please please!! Thanks T&B
  12. I have a room in the Thistle Hotel 4* at Heathrow airport, booked for Sunday 23 November, check in at 2pm and then check out at 12. I no longer need the room, it is a double room, no breakfast included. Hotel has a pool and all the usual facilities, just wondered if any of you were traveling into Heathrow and then out overseas on that date, long shot, but I am selling the room for £50. PM me if you are interested. Cheers T&B
  13. Why not just have one big toilet for everyone, surely the days are gone where men and women have to be segregated!!! It'll be like Ally McBeal won't it! Seriously though, the toilets at Fabric are unisex and ive seen nothing but fun going on in there!! *ahem* Toilets could be the new "speed dating" I work closely with the SU at my work and trust me, they love sinking their teeth into anything that will cause a pain in the arse for the management! I think it is all prob a case of that rather than actually caring about the tiny minority of trans gendered students - it is so transparent! Ah well if it keeps them busy!
