Jingle All The Way.... [01 Dec 2012|11:00am]
[ mood | Meh ]

....to Shepherd's Bush for 15 days of being a twattish Elf in a shopping centre.

I'm going to have an igloo, a post box and a "live feed" to Santa (a pre recorded DVD that I have a conversation with).

Question is....can i be arsed?

Answer is....no...no I can't.

Once again....think of the money.

Another train... [29 Nov 2012|02:56pm]
[ mood | Lazy ]

So I'm headed to Oxford Circus for another commercial casting.

This time it's for O2. I wonder how long I'll be there this time...20, maybe 30 seconds before they thank me like they just saw the greatest "mobile phone" acting they've ever seen leading to them inevitably giving the job to someone else.

Amazing the shit we actors put up with. If it was any other profession I'd be out of there so fast...that...something...clever and witty would happen...yes.

Then home to tidy the entire flat for Nasha's visit on Saturday. It'll be great to see her with plenty to catch up on but the idea of cleaning the entire flat on my ONE day off isn't thrilling.

Ah well needs must.

Think of the money.

...hmm maybe ill sneak in a game of Fifa first.

Late late late [28 Nov 2012|11:35am]

Ok so this is more of a mini rant than an update.

I'm on a London train - by definition it's a mess, cramped and late for NO REASON!!

I'm sorry but "adverse weather conditions" (referring to a slight rain) in ENGLAND in WINTER....really!?!? Gah!!!

Anyway - yesterday I was in work and decided to read some of my old posts. Hilarity ensued. I can't believe how I used to talk and the extreme range of emotions and made up words! To be fair I was 16 in 2003 when I started...but still.

It's a really nice little time capsule and I'm glad I posted so regularly for a few years. It reminds me of what used to be so important and of my new priorities as a "mature" 25 year old. Very amusing, interesting reading.

So now I'm late for work and still sat on a train.... Good job I'm my own boss today.

Saturday I start being an Elf again.

For old times sake:

You have been Philified...

4 leafed pot of clover at the end of a rainbow... [20 Aug 2010|03:07pm]
[ mood | subdued ]

So here we go again...off to Ireland for the second time on this never ending tour of nonsense.
And i cant be fucked. 10 days away in crappy travel lodges in Belfast, Liverpool and Isle Of Man.

Trying to stay positive but i know how hard it was last time we went away for this long. Need to keep myself busy, not spend too much money and try not to get pissed off with everyone, their silly insecurities and all their bullshit....i promise nothing!

The other night was random. Went out for Adam's birthday and saw desperation like ive never seen before. We ended up at the windmill in picadilly and had some fun, had some dances while Garrett fell in love and 'made a connection' with his stripper. Hilarious and sad all at the same time.

Oh well, i got a dance from an extremely hot girl. Or rather, awesome body, pretty face, weird fake tits that looked like baked potatoes. Oh well, nobody is perfect, right?

Anyway, on the train to Gatwick now so fingers crossed everythinh is on time. Altho, if i miss my flight, do i still have to go?? Hmm....

2 whoppers - whopp?

Watching, waiting.... [17 Aug 2010|08:25am]

...for my train to leave Cannon Street station for Bromley North. Just another in the long line of tour stops.
Seeme like this tour is going on forever...not surprising considering we've now done over 300 shows.

Anyway, a little life update. Graduated Conti, been in and broke from a long term relationship and everything that goes along with it. Fun while it lasted, guttinh when it ended and inevitably better off without it in the end.

So now spending my days on trains, in theatres around the country performing pig manipulation and in my docklands flat wity Garrett, Keegs and usually the lovely Christina - the best non-girlfriend in the world right now.

Lots of fun being had and a lot of patience being exhibited until i finish tour and we'll hopefully be in a position to get it together for real.

Annoying side note - went all the way to Cannon Street to get a train this morning only to have just gone through London Bridge....fail.

Anyway, not much to say..just updating and trying to get back in the habit...just like Whoopi Goldberg.

Wow. [15 Aug 2010|01:26pm]
[ mood | grateful ]

Ok so this is a bit weird...

Updating this for the first time in literally years.
I'm a different person now in all sorts of positive and better ways and its actually making me laugh about some of the trivial things I used to bitch, moan and cry about.
Looks like college and stuff was rough but all I know is I deal with things so much more appropriately now.

I'm now a professional actor, still playing music when I can and generally a very happy person.

So lets try and update this more again - who knows, I might even post lyrics and things that I'm writing while on the Peppa Pig tour of death.

Oh... and I don't talk like a cock anymore with things like 'woozle' and 'howdy doody'... although I guess that doesnt make me a cock it just made me young and a bit silly.

Don't get me wrong - I'm still very much silly and random and energetic - but I'm much more grounded. I know myself much more. I know who I am, what I want and how to deal with people and their nonsense.

It's a little bit sad looking back at some of the posts and seeing just how everything seemed to get on top of me the way it did - it all snowballed - I guess I'd just never had to deal with anything tough until I hit college... so no wonder I crumbled a bit.

But the big positive is that I know had I not had to deal with all that I wouldnt be who I am now - and thats a win. x


Wow [09 Jun 2006|09:49pm]

[ mood | woo terrorvision! ]

Ok so stuffness...

trying to think of anythin i did before Saturday to talk about and get out the way before the main point of this update lol

so yeh cant think of anything so onto the wooooooness

FINALLY got to go see TERRORVISION live!! They split up about 4 years ago and i was gutted that id never get to see them coz they have been one of my fave bands for years and years now... and then they decided to do a 'one week only tour' and omg it was just incredible!! They played everything i woulda hoped for and they were on stage for about 1hr45 and they were just totally supreme... Tony was in wicked voice and was jumping around on the stage the whole time.. so much energy and such an awesome sound.. its just awesome to finally be able to say ive seen them play.. hopefully this gig will spark a permenant reunion.. but i doubt it.. but at least i can also say i went to Terrorvisions last ever gig.. they were absolutely incredible... the crowd was really good aswell.. jumping around like crazy with some wicked pits.. kept gettin thrown all over the place, such a great atmosphere.. and Tony has grown his hair back and therefore doesnt look like a muppet anymore lol so yeh i cant remember their entire setlist altho im gonna be tryin to find one online sometime soon but from what i can remember they played (in no particular order):

American TV
My House
Hide The Dead Girl
If I Was You
Dog Chewed The Handle
Bad Actress
Celebrity Hitlist
Alice Whats The Matter?
Stop The Bus
Pretend Best Friend
What Makes You Tick?
Discotheque Wreck
Still The Rhythm
Some People Say
Dya Wanna Go Faster
Friends And Family
Fists Of Fury...

thats 23 songs and im pretty sure there was a few more... but yeh absolutely incredible.. i dnno how i found the energy to keep goin insane thru the whole gig but just WOW basically lol...

So yeh thats pretty much it.. aint done much today coz ive been suffering from the gig a lil bit.. couldnt speak at all this morning and it took me til about 8pm to be able to hear alright and my neck has been aching like hell from when a fat crowd surfer landed on me lol... but yayness! And Tony was just on TV aswell on the 100 greatest albums... they werent in there but he was one of the commenty ppl which made my all hyper for a lil while..

but yeh thats all i really have to say.. back at college 2morro n stayin til 5 to work in the studio to record some stuff for music tech.. then get to see Lauren 2morro nite which im really lookin forward to her.. aint seen her in a few days n im actually really missing her so yayness!

[ mood | hot ]

Hokay so feelin kinda lame today really..

Didnt really do much yesterday apart from laze around n stuff.. had a piano lesson on the night which went alright n i had learned everything he asked me to but he still didnt seem happy which was strange really coz i did exactly what he asked so that was kinda annoying.

Then today I didnt do much in the morning really but then Anna text me coz we were talkin bout how we should go shopping sometime so she text me coz she was going to Stockton to buy stuff for Jenny's bday so we went shopping n twas cool.. didnt buy anything coz of my lack of money but Anna got lots of stuff n Mike (who drove me) got a couple of shirts n some trousers which was cool. Then went out with Dad n FINALLY got all ma provisional liscense stuff sorted out which means i should be having lessons in two weeks which will be good... need to run down some kids to cheer me up a bit coz im a miserable sod lol

Sounds really sad n lame n everything but i've been thinking alot about Pia again recently.. coz she really was so funky n we got on so great n i did fancy her lots n stuff.. n i was reading my leavers book n her entry n how nice it is n stuff.. i feel like i fancy her again even tho i aint seen her for months... but then Em was texting me n tellin me that she has invited Pia to the college party which would be awesome.. just to see her again would be cool... i dunno im lame.

Really kinda worried bout 2morro.. got ma music AS level exam n i really just dont have a clue.. i really really am going to fail n even tho every1s like 'ur fine coz ur phil n music is ur thing' they really dont kno just how screwed i am... my compositions were pretty shit.. my performance was good.. but i jst dont have a clue bout these essays n im jst gonna let so many ppl down when i fail miserably.. i mean all my family are all proud of the musicness n thats not gonna be good... Mr Mcreddie has worked really hard with me to get ma grades up n stuff so that i'll be ok for future music courses n so has Liz.. and now that im gona fail i feel like ive just wasted all of their time n it aint a good feeling... ARGH!

Anyway yeh
You have been Phillified
