» Vomit Pt2

Main and dessert
Once many moons ago me and a bunch of mates went to an outdoor party. It was excellent but that has nothing to do with the story. Upon arrival my mate announces he isn't feeling too rosey. Immediately wondering off to the side of the road to hurl. First time he puked it was quite clearly bolognaise. Then taking a breather he followed it up with some cake. I had no idea that things could be kept separate that way. Very impressive.

Mr Bodge
I am well known amongst my friends as the king of bodgers. My guitar amp was probably the best though.

When I was in a band in my uni days I was, as you would expect piss poor. However our band needed a guitar amp. 'No problem' says I. A short trip on ebay and 2 speakers and a 300w car amp were heading my way. A battered old cabinet was given to us from the practice studio as well. But how to power such a beast? Car amps are DC and mains is AC. A PC power supply of course! I am still not sure how I did not die/set fire to our house or how I guessed it but I managed to open up the PSU (bad idea guys unless you really know what your doing) solder on some wiring and fix this through to the amp. Voila! To actually get distortion and stuff we used a zoom pedal. It actually worked pretty damn well. And for the piece de' le resistance... I managed to wire in some Christmas lights too. The guys were all scared of it but It did quite a few gigs with us :)

Once the band got a proper amp I move the amp into a bread bin, gave it neons and it gave us a kicking home sound system.

Other bodges include a wooden PC case, the remote club, the two level entertainment system holding all our consoles and two decent tv's and loads and loads of PC bodges :p

Good times

A tale of three counties
For far too long I thought I lived on the border of three counties. 'Berkshire', 'Barkshire' and 'Buckinghamshire'....

» Vomit Pt2

drunkeness, puke and a hoover
One of my past wonderful housemates got terribly drunk one evening and vomited in the lounge. No problem says he, I shall simply hoover the sick up like the responsible person I am.

He then forgot about this until we hoovered about two weeks later. The smell was pretty overpowering... Then when we went to open the hoover up to get the bag out we were met with putride mould that had grown into the shape of the inside of the hoover, so virilant its growth had been.

All round pretty awful....

Think when adding contacts
My ex was visiting her parents in Newcastle, while I was left home alone. Im normally pretty prudish but decided to push the boat out and send some rude texts. Note to all, never list your girlfriends mum next to you girlfiend in your contacts list. Mum was pretty cool with it, ex, not so.
