Christ, it's deader than mine, AA's and swipe's mums collectively in here.
Don't tell me you're all off having social lives or drinking cocoa in bed or summat; it won't wash.

For those of you still lucky enough to have two still-functioning parents, which one do you think will be the first to go? And how will you spend the inheritance? I put mine down on a deposit for a flat. Sensible or what?

I don't think it's anything to cheer about, certainly not at such a young age.

Probably my dad, they tend to go early on that side on the family.
Also: inheritance? What's that?
(, Wed 25 Apr 2012, 23:16, Reply)
Certainly not something I'm going to get from my dad, that's fo' sho'.

My dad snuffed it four days before my 16th birthday
I still have some inheritance left but mostly it got frittered away on buying elderly, barely functioning Minis, holidays and putting myself through uni. Given the amount they want for a deposit nowadays I doubt it'll stretch to that but there's enough there for a fucking awesome holiday.

I never knew my dad but my Mum and her civil-partnership-spouse have a nice listed cottage in a village
I'd never live there because it's shit and dull but by the time they cark it it might be more appealing. What a pleasant subject.

I just watched the first episode of Alcatraz knowing it's pretty likely to be cancelled before it gets a second series. I was hoping it'd be shit but it's not so at some point in the future I'll be annoyed and waggling my fists in impotent rage (see also: Firefly, Odyssey 5)

Was it you that was going to go to fabric on a Sunday night?

(, Wed 25 Apr 2012, 23:29, Reply)
Yes! That was me
I went with my eldest son who thought the music was shit. We were basically there to keep dry until the first train back in the morning (the main reason we were in London was for a Sisters of Mercy gig). I had a good dance myself but was probably too pissed to notice the looks of disdain from the beautiful people.

My favourite room is room 2.
Who was playing when you went?
(, Wed 25 Apr 2012, 23:33, Reply)
I'm almost certain there was only one room open that night (on a couple of levels)
..but, as I say, I was a Grand Hotel's worth of sheets to the hurricane. I had a nice wee doze at some mid-point (we were in there for a good 7 hours after a day of doing Monopoly shots) and remember wandering around. I could dance to the music but it seemed a bit dull and repetitive.

What did you make of the gig?
I thought the Roundhouse was an excellent venue.
(, Wed 25 Apr 2012, 23:47, Reply)
We managed to be pretty much front and center
..and it was fantastic. I got into Sisters around the time Floodland came out and never really thought I'd get to see them live but they didn't let me down. The crowd around us were a great bunch, really friendly and chatting away till the music started. Great experience.

It was a good gig.

I reckon Pa McKee is probably about 0.675 functional.
Ma McKee is, at best about 0.387 functional, averaging motor-neuron/coordination/recall/sexual function/aggravation.
So that adds up to 1.062?
Hopefully Ma will pop off soon, she's had enough of hanging around.
Pa is due a heart attack but has always been a cantankerous cunt so will probably keep us waiting.

But I have dazzling taste in shirts as well.
I dabbled with gothism when I was 16, for about 3 months or so.

Still like the Sisters though.

don't most teenagers dabble with gothism at some point or other though?
I mean, unless they're beautiful and popular, that is.

I had my year of very mild gothism.

FUcking crazy thing happened this evening.
About 5 minutes ago I got woken up by the wind, but I was upright and crossed legged and I can't even remember going to bed =/ it was like I was one second on the couch and then suddenly upright in bed.

You'd have to ask her.

Did you guys get back to the North East okay? (I read about the plumbing woes).

Yeah, flight was delayed so it was nearly midnight before we got home, though.
Plumbing woes are still ongoing; although the water's back there seems to be an airlock in the system, so no hot water. Thankfully the shower's working again.
