I just found out off my neighbour that Roberto from Big Brother was in my local on friday night! He was apparently up here for a wedding on saturday and was in the Whitburn Lodge! Marie, my neighbour was talking to him! She said he is self obsessed and smells a bit funky! Her boyfriend was dead excited and wanted his picture taken with him!!! How exciting!!!

Hopefully I will get an interview proper, and they need 600 people by September!!!!

I'm feeling better about this whole job thing already!

Had a good day yesterday. The aerial man came and put an aerial on our roof so we can now get Freeview, then set up the freeview and the TopUpTv. Then I went into Sunderland with Mum and Aunty Maureen (not my real aunty, my mum's best friend!) I saw the most gorgeous weekender bag in Debenhams! It's actually a free gift with a 50ml bottle of J-Lo 'Glow' I MUST have it! I can picture myself walking into the Hilton at Garforth next month with that over my shoulder and pulling my pink mini suitcase! So stylish! Plus it's only £30!

(this pic was taken from eBay, as someone is selling one without the perfume! And the buckle is much more sparkly!

Off to the jobcentre in a few minutes to sign on (I can't believe I would ever be claiming Jobseekers Allowance!) And then off into town again... I WILL come home with that bag!

Now I have finished uni, and I am becoming all grown up and responsible, I felt it was time to sort out my debts.
I am £600 overdrawn in my account, with a £600 debt on a credit card. My overdraft is £1500 and it is interest free for another year. I have £157 in my ISA and £137 debt on my Argos card. I also have 318 pound coins in a tub in my room waiting to go to the bank.

My plan is: Pay off my credit card with my overdraft, so even though I will be £1200 overdrawn, it will be interest free as opposed to paying 19.5% interest on the credit card (bad rate isnt it!!) The only direct debits I will have on my current account now will be £8 per month to Dogs Trust, and there is no way i'll get rid of that!

Pay off the argos card with what is in my ISA, get rid of that card.

Put the 318 pound coins into my ISA, and once I get a job, work at paying off my overdraft!!! It'll take me until my 2 months wages before I will finally be back in the black and only have a £10,000 student loan debt to my name!

I feel better now :)

I think i'm gonna go back to university to do a Masters in Film and Cultural Studies, part-time cos its only 1 or 2 nights a week normal university term times. I'll have to talk to James first cos it costs £560 a year, but i could get a small loan from the bank (my new postgrad account at the bank does me a great deal on loans!)

I'll also need to talk to the course leader, because you generally need a 2:1 or higher to get in, but 2:2s are also considered. I shouldnt worry about talking to her though, cos she likes me, cos i got a 2:1 in chinese cinema which is her module in 3rd year! My dissertation got a 2:1 and some of the modules that are taught on the course relate so much to my dissertation that i think i could do really well... Hmmm... its something to think about, but it could do so much for me, i could teach in universities or i could go on to do an MPhil or a PhD (lol can you imagine me as a Dr!!!)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your own bulletin...along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

Mine was:

"The first recorded Zoon proto-lie was : 'Actually, my grandfather is quite tall,' but eventually they got the hang of it and the office of the tribal Liar was insituted."

The book is 'Equal Rites' which is the third Discworld novel.

I spent over an hour trawling the internet this morning looking for a hotel to book for when we are at leeds festival (we are getting too old for this camping lark... leave it to the young ones who think getting muddy and drunk at a festival is 'cool!' bless them...!)
Anyways, my efforts were fruitful, as we are staying at The Hilton!!!!!

Went to see The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse last night... so funny!!! There was one moment involving Peter Kay and Simon Pegg which had me and James in stiches for about 10 min!!! We were trying to keep quiet which made us laugh even more!!!!

Only 2 days till we go on holiday!!!!
Been checking out the weather forecasts - one site says we are getting rain monday and tuesday then sunny for the rest of the week, another two sites say sunny and another one says overcast on monday then boiling hot...
But they all have high temperatures, so if it rains its still gonna be hot...

i'll just wait till we get there!!!

Saw Star Wars last night... not much of a fan, but was nice to have the loose ends tied up for me!
I did, however, see the trailer for the new Willy Wonka.... It looks amazing!!! And Johnny Depp is gonna make a fantastic Wonka!!! Gene Wilder had complained that Tim Burton had made it too dark, but in my opinon, Willy Wonka is a very dark film anyways, and Burton has only improved it!

Also saw the trailer for the new Herbie film... what have they done to Herbie?? They ruined him!!!! I will not be going to see that...

My new hair!! [14 Jun 2005|02:42pm]
I now have blonde highlights in my hair!
The top is a lovely blonde colour, and the underneath is a gorgeous chocolatey brown (think bourneville chocolate!)

Tell me what you think!!

I'm so bored today. Went into town to get a few last minute bits for our holidays. Got hand cream and hand scrub, and a big bottle of The Sanctuary Body Milk which i love! And a mango and passionflower body spray.

going to see star wars tomorrow night. Getting my hair done in the morning... going blonde on top and darker brown underneath!! Hopefully will have my webcam working so i can take a pic!

Think i might go and wander aimlessly around my room looking for something fun to do...

or I could finish 'The Light Fantastic'. I'm becoming a bit of a Discworld fan these days!
