» Out of my depth

speech day...
In my last year of sixth form, i was persuaded (ie. forced) to play the trumpet in the school prizegiving. Even though I'd been playing for 9 years, i was not used to playing solos in front of 800+ people.

To make matters worse, the head,arranged the programme so that I played right after the 11 year old child prodigy pianist who'd just played in the young musician of the year final. After the little kid's standing ovation, my name was announced, 300 students laughed very loudly, and i'm sure the parents were silently pissing themselves too.

I got up, thought "fuck it" and said to the amassed crowd "how do you follow that?" which got more laughs. I started, fucked up after about 2 minutes through a mixture of nerves, sheer heat of being underneath intense lights in full school uniform (top button done up and everything!), and the considerable amount of dutch courage that my mates had plied me with down the local two hours beforehand. I stopped, turned to the guy accompanying me and said "shall we try that again?" before continuing, dying on my arse and just wanting to get off the stage. Once i finished though, i got the most sympathetically huge round of applause and standing ovation, that it made it seem not so bad (even though it was bloody awful).

For the rest of the year, the nicknames "trumpet boy" and "trumpers" followed me round the school...

» The last thing that made me cry

Whilst watching the incredibles (don't laugh!)
The bit where they're saving Metroville from the Omnidroid and Bob says he's not strong enough to lose his wife and kids again.

It was so well voice acted and animated, it reminded me of just how much I loved my ex-girlfriend, who dumped me for no reason in October after two years, went out with another guy mid-November, and got engaged to him three weeks later. And he looks like a rat. Bitch.

» Guilty Pleasures

Every day without fail
Morning, noon or night, I love running my fingers through my big boy hair down there, and spreading the ones that come out around the floor of my one room student flat. I haven't hoovered since I moved in in September.

» I just don't get it

There's a time and a place...
When i first graced the talk board about six months ago, I noticed but couldn't understand the amount of *bumming* going on, and whilst I thought it was funny, I didn't quite understand when it was appropriate to pop up in a thread and bum away (WTF?). It took a few weeks of random experimentation to realise that on the talk board, bumming is always welcome!

» Claims to Fame

You know the rather spiffingly attractive twins in Snatch (yeah dad, ya told us)
After making a comment to my cousin at a big family party about how i wouldn't mind a threesome with the twins from Snatch, we were later told that they were in fact my aunt's sisters.

Luckily my cousin didn't say anything, but she could have made me her bitch for ever if she'd wanted to be a blackmailing biatch.
