Is anyone in the Cambridge area currently after a new room-mate/flat-mate/house-mate? NOT for me or Rich I hasten to add.

One of the guys I know through work (Pete, tall blonde Larper and all round good chap of a geeky and techy persuasion) is shortly being kicked out of his current place as the pub he lives above is being leased to a different owner and he can't stay put.

He comes with an assortment of weapons, is a non-smoker and non-pet owner (unless you count his beard). Anyone interested, or know of anyone who's looking for somewhere / someone, please let me know either on the public unscreened lj post, or comment on the note over on Facebook. He'll have access to both!

Progress and the last week... )

But, it’s nearly done. And therefore, it’s started to hit home – it’s time to get myself emotionally in order.

YOUR help needed... )

Whiney, moaning, emo, teenage angst post over. Oh, and in addition, aimed at no-one in specific remotely. There are a few of you who are exceedingly good and wonderful at suggesting stuff and inviting me over / coming to visit / pinging me randomly on msn / facebooking me etc – you know who you are and it means the world to me. Please don’t stop!

Em x

Help needed - I want to get to Ikea tomorrow (better quality than Argos) as, whislt I know what I want and they deliver, the earliest is 13th May and quite frankly, I'll be in an asylum by that point.

Is anyone able to take me to Ikea (whichever is easiest for you from Cambridge) tomorrow for petrol money and lots of hugs and a meal?

Everything I'm planning on buying is self assembly and flat packed but the bigger the car, the better.

*crosses fingers*

Lift sorted! Yey!!

So my sister's chap Tim (who rocks) is a Death Metaller and is looking for some t-shirts. They're seemingly not easy to get over in Oz. Any of you lot know;


Specifically 1349, Aeon and any silly Metaloclypse....

Tim usually buys from the US of A but was wondering if there were any UK sites. Our google-foo is lacking.

Some of you are, but most of you aren't, aware that [livejournal.com profile] alixandrea, Paul (with no lj) and me are in the planning stages of presenting a Goth night on 209 radio (105fm). We had a meeting tonight (which I'm just in from, and am soaked as the heavens opened on me) to basically swap some tracks around, get a hold on what we all thought it is, or isn't, and generally have a bit of a natter.

It's prompted me to look into a few bands I'd not heard of, always a good thing.

But it's also made me curious and this is where I need your help EVERYONE please.

Name a few tracks that, in your view, come under the 'Goth' umbrella.

Time period, style etc are pretty much irrelevant - and if you don't count yourself as a 'Goth', even better actually. What are your pre-conceptions of a typical Goth track? There is, let me make myself clear, no 'wrong' answer here. I'm curious! :)

If everyone on my friends list (here on lj and over there on facebook) could give me three tracks, that'd be a huge help.

(ino, walking in the rain at night listening to Muse's 'Invincible' is a great way to spend a few minutes, so long as you know there's a warm house and fluffy towel at the end of your stomp!)

So, I like getting letters. But I LOVE writing them. And it's something I've not done much of over the last few months. This has got to be remedied.

Comment with your address (even if I've written to you recently ish - I'm a sod for loosing them / not writing down) and next time in the mood to put pen to paper, you might just get one from me.

Open to everyone on my friends list, though of course, some of you might be more difficult to write to than others but that's half the fun!

NB - Comments are ALWAYS automatically screened on my journal, so don't worry about commenting. Or you could link me to your lj posts which hold such info if you'd prefer.


[Edit] - my address is here (locked post), but if of course I write to you, I'll include it anyway! (Well observed the penguiny one x)

So I know that the more tech savvy of you are going to berate me for still having a hotmail account, but I can't get into the blasted thing. For the past 24 hours at least, each time I try to login I get the following message;

Windows Live Hotmail was not able to sign in to your account at this time. Please try again later.

I've tried accessing from different computers on different networks (ie work and home) to no avail.

I've sent a couple of test emails to see if the account has been closed without my knowledge but so far, they haven't bounced.

I'm well below my space / size limit on my account.

Is anyone else having the same problem and if so, what did you do to resolve it? I've tried the windows online help thingymajig but to be perfectly honest, I'm now more confused than I was to begin with!!!


NB - I NEED to get into my email account to check up on potential job offers etc.

I really do love last.fm. Based on my musical profile it's currently playing me recommendations. Currently I'm listening to Bizet's 'Carmen' - Habanera. And it got me thinking. I usually say I hate opera. But that just isn't true - I love choral pieces and I love lots of 'bits' of opera but knowing very little about it, I'm not sure what to plump for. Another piece I love is Offenbach's 'Les contes d'Hoffmann' - Belle nuit (Barcarolle).

So, for those of you who are far more educated on such things.... help! Recommend something to me, tell me what your favourite piece is and why, and hopefully I'll learn what to disregard and what to go with!

People. About 3 weeks ago, I realised with horror that my Samsung phone wasn't charging. I tried a different charger (which was proved to work on another phone) but no cigar. Being me and useless with technogubbins, I'd stored all of my phone numbers on the phone rather than the sim (and no, I don't ever learn!).

As such, although my number is still the same, I have NO IDEA who most of my old texts are from.

This is my (by now regular) plead for anyone who has my number to text me with their name so I can address the issue. Alternatively, comment.

Link to my details here for those of you who don't have me stored anywhere but would like to. If you can't see it, it's because I don't know you!
[Level - Public]


Why I need you all to comment / text me with your name and number )

Please can you assume I've not got your number (unless you're [livejournal.com profile] devalmont). Text your name to me, or comment (I'll leave them screened). MY number hasn't changed, just the phone!

Mine is here if you've not currently got it - viewable to my lj friends only :P.

If anyone has 2 tickets for Ricky Gervais at the Manchester Apollo going spare, I know someone who'd really like them ([livejournal.com profile] min_ki wanted to get some for her man but they are all sold out now so I turn to you, my lj buddies, in case you've bought surplus).

Clearly she *could* pay stupid amounts for them on ebay but her finances won't stretch to that. She's not actually fussed about venue as long as it isn't too far from Leicester (hence her initial Manchester ideal but anywhere within reason would be good!).

A brief history of why I'm asking for your contact details again! )

So, if you haven't recently given me your number (check on this post, this one, this one or this one) could I have it again please?

As usual, all comments screened. You will only be able to see your own comments on the aforementioned posts and as always, I'll keep your details safe from anyone else unless you tell me differently. I'll add numbers into my phone from the newest post backwards so if on checking, you see an old number up for yourself do tell me.

Hope that makes sense folks!

A few weeks back, [livejournal.com profile] devalmont and myself posted saying we might have a room in our house going spare soon.

Well, that soon has arrived. Our housemate is leaving early November so we need someone to take his place.

The house is just after the railway bridge on Mill Rd, about 15 minutes walk from town and 10 minutes walk from the station. Ideal for the London commute.

We're looking for an individual (it's a double room but the house really couldn't support two couples) who is Goth-friendly, ideally who knows us, and who is sensible but knows how to enjoy themselves. We're both non-smokers but do not prejudice anyone who wishes to smoke outside. We have one occasional visiting cat (who isn't ours!), but other than that no pets, unless you count guitarists.

The rent is £290 a month + bills, and although the room is available from early November there's no huge rush to fill it, if you need to give notice on your current place.

You may or may not be aware that tonight (Wednesday 20th September) is the:

Kreuzdammer 'Shot Down In Flames' EP Launch
Gig Details Here )

Now, it would be fantastic if you could go. You see, [livejournal.com profile] devalmont is dependant on public transport to get him and his guitar safely home.

He will have to leave at 11:20pm rather than party on until 2am unless one of the following happens;

a) Someone can give him a lift home to Cambridge
b) Someone can give him a lift back to their house + crash space
c) Someone near to Camden can give him crash space

If you're able to do any of the above, I know a rather miserable goth that you'd cheer up no end by visiting this post and letting him know you can help.

NB - if you can't see that post, comment here and I'll pass it on!

I feel like a bit of a change. I feel like a bit of inspiration. I feel the need for Dita. So if you know of any Dita Von Teese icons or icon communities, or mood themes, could you please point me in their direction?

Thank you!

Right, I’m now off to do some work. Oh, [livejournal.com profile] huggirl / [livejournal.com profile] t_lab I forgot to look at Gwydir Street this morning. However, the Dr’s wife called and said she had a twin room, not a double, which was free tonight. £25 each including breakfast, call her on 01223 356 615 if you’re interested and haven’t found anywhere else.

And a final mention, just in case you’ve somehow missed it:

Right, I'm in need of more help.

I'm using the S2 system on a paid account - Component layout with a few of my own tweaks. I'm not a programmer and have read the S2 manual but it didn't answer my question.

I'd like to have a picture displayed at the top of my page in 'recent entries' but I can't figure out how. Can anyone tell me how to do it? PLEASE?

Anyone know how to change the background colour of an entry?

My darling [livejournal.com profile] devalmont rather urgently needs a CV printed off. I have no printer. Anyone able to help? I'm heading there tomorrow afternoon and can email it to someone if they're likely to be in town at New Street and are willing to print it off for me. Or tonight if you're local!!
Could you email me conversation logs from MSN? I've just lost them all due to an installation :-(.

Got a song stuck in my head, and I don't know what it's called or who it's by....

You know Silence of the Lambs, where Buffalo Bill is dancing around naked, putting on make-up and then posing in front of the mirror? What IS that track that plays in the background?

I don't have the film so I can't pause the end credits to figure it out. Also, I've tried before but given I've nothing to go on, it's a tad tricky. First person with the right answer, I owe you a drink. :D
