It's not often I can be bothered to do these but here we go!

Just wanted to say I got an email from Collection 2000 telling me about their new felt-tipped pen eyeliner and it looked interesting so I decided to give it a go.


Already a fan of collection 2000 thanks to their cheap and cheerful yet quality glitter liners


(on me, who doesn't sweat unless I'm ill or in the tropics they are indistinguishable from MAC's glitter liners, but a LOT cheaper and more colours).

I've never got on with any of the brushes that come with most liquid liners or even using a separate specific brush. I guess I'm cack handed plus as I'm super hairy I have eyelashes growing out of my actual eyelid a few mm up which tends to knock brushes of course and result in splodges. I find pencils to thick and smudgy for the top lid. So I was very curious about the new product.

Anyway, so I think the Collection 2000 one is pretty awesome! and only 2:99!

Only one other company makes pen type liners that I could find, and that was a lethargic dark grey on flesh but the Collection 2000 one is really nice intense proper black and sooo much easier to apply in my hands. The felt tip end allows you to do thick and thin easily much like a calligraphy pen or something. WHY ARE THESE NOT MORE COMMON?

The only problem is, its almost as impossible to remove as the MAC liquidlast stuff. I still have some residual blobs in between my eyelashes 48 hours later as I prefer looking blobby to scrubbing my eyelids too much!! But this is a good thing for dancers as I think it will stand up to sweat etc very well!

Dear ebay user "retrovandalism"

Now is just not the time in my life to fuck with me, I know you don't care about my life, nor do I care about any bullshit excuses that I suspect will be fielded by you

I'm sorry but your excuses are bollocks . . all it takes to refund me is to click one link in paypal. I may have given you the benfit of the doubt and let ebay 'cancel' the transaction (which I am now regretting, I always regret slipping up and having faith in people) that does not mean I canoot use paypal to go after you and also leave you extremely shit negative feedback, which given your feedback only in the 50s will have a big impact.

Just give me my fucking money back its not that hard and will make everyone's lives easier

This situation would never had arisen if you'd taken the effort to package the item properly in the first place.

Funny thing is, although I feel like an ambasador for tea when in the USA (we caused drama in several branches of starbucks by requesting hot tea, even though it was on the damn menu) I'm a very bad brit and make a cuppa in a cold mug with often reboiled water and i swish the bag about with a spoon for a bit before getting impatient and removing it. No 5 min brewing (or 'infusion') here!

My new favourite map features in this video behind eyebrows man.

My phone is due for an upgrade

I am currently using a phone that was a bit dated when I got it 3 years ago and am currently on a cheap as chips £9 a month contract that came with an even shitter phone that has never been opened! I currently spend an additional few quid on overpriced internet checking my gmail every month, although the phone is too crap for me to be able to reply or really use any other web pages - I can just about check tfl for tube disruptions if I am lucky. I want to stay on a contract as I like knowing the phone is there in case of emergencies.

I was looking at the webpage of my network for what is currently availiable (three, its too much hassle to change network for various reasons)

Pretty much the cheapest new contract is £15 a month and in addition to what I am getting at present (100 minutes or texts, I'm not really a big phone person) it has free internet (well 500 MB) and unlimited texts. My current phone is really on its last legs so I'll have to get a new phone anyway. I guess the other alternative is to fork out for a new handset and stay on my cheapskate contract. It's not like i NEED to be close to the internet for the 5% of my life I'm not near a laptop anyway . . . .

Turns out some of the smart phones can be got 'free' on a contract for as little as £19 a month. I'm tempted - I REALLY like the idea of having GPS on my phone (a lot less printing out of googlemaps!!), I'd use the internet a lot more if it was unlimited but I don't need other crap or stupid apps or anything (I have a camera and mp3 players that I'm quite happy with on their own!!).

But something inside me rejects the idea of smart phones as only for pretentious wankers . . . .I'm proud of having a cheap-ass crappy phone (weird because I'm quite up on most other technology . . I guess most other technology helps me avoid/ignore people rather than have to talk to them!!)

I'd most likely get one of the ones running Android and def NOT an iphone . . .

Hmm . . .

I remember the days you had to pay £30 for the most basic of contracts so I guess this all seems resonable, but maybe I'm just naive?

It's my 30th birthday in month.

Looks like work stuff will be ensuring I can't even get a weekend away (escaping somewhere Tropical or Cairo would be first choice), but as its a Saturday I should be able to do something for the day.

My friends are scattered all over the country/world so a big party isn't really an option, neither is it really my thing. I'm not a big drinker anyway really.

Any ideas for something fun and awesome to do in a day?

I don't like the theatre as its full of other noisy smelly mucousy fidgety people. I guess maybe I'd like it if I had my own box!!

I'd quite like the ballet but I assume it has the same figety mucousy/darth vader breath assholes as the theatre.

I'd be quite up for something active (assult course/go ape etc) but then no one would come with me . .

Any ideas?

I haven't made any effort whatsoever since my 24th when I actually had friends in the same city but I feel like my 30th I should try and do something other than sit at home watching TV as normal.

There are workshops with Nawarra that day which I haven't booked but maybe I should as then at least I wouldn't be sat at home.

I was in town anyway so I got me some Sally Hansen Airbrush legs in light glow (Superdrug does slighyl better than boots and sainsburys in that it has light but still no nude). I've tried it on one leg, OK colour for me as my legs a weirdly paler than the rest of me so it evens everything out, but it hasn't done a very convincing job on a fairly minor bruise. We'll see how orange my jeans are after a few hours . . . . .

I was excited to order my Marie Curie T shirt from the Heroines of Science series at Think Geek


The picture looks awesome. I love how it subverts the normal girl t shirt style, first glance you think the swirls are flowers and butterflies and shit, and the woman is probably a fairy or looking at shoes.

Something like this (first thing google found):


But then you look closer and see the swirls are chemical symbols and the woman has a flask. Awesome! Also the colour on the page looks awesome and it looks like a proper babydoll T from the picture.

So I was devastated to discover, that it was in fact on a lethargic pink Bella ‘babydoll’ which is an unflattering box shaped monstrosity made out of that godawful ribbed stuff that goes shapeless with a day.

Something like this


scroll to ‘Berry’. It even looks like crap on the model!!!

To compound the problem, despite me owning several other Bella shirts in Medium (including another one from Think Geek http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/womens/a1ed/ ) the Medium seems to have doubled in size since the last time so its totally unwearable as the shoulder stick out an inch past mine. Humph. Its too much hassle to return it though, plus it was a 3 for 2 offer so I’m not sure I would get any money back. Hump

It’s a shame something that had the potential to be so awesome failed so spectacularly. 

We've just watched the finale of Lost. Still um, something, what can you say? But it hasn't fucked me up anywhere near as much as BSG did.

Just recived my second pair of super-flared jeans. It's my own personal rebellion against the abomination that is skinny jeans :-) , I don't care if I look decades out of date.

I've been looking for a ridiculous fascinator to go with a teal/lilac silk dress for my cousin's wedding.

If I was loaded I would TOTALLY buy this:


However, my budget is sadly more in the £20-30 range (less than £20 they are a bit generic and unimaginative)

Back home in London, been asleep for the last 9 hours and planning to go back to bed soon. As well as the 'overnight flight' that I never sleep anyway, on the stress and worry has caught up I think.

N is still in New York, re-booked for Sat (a week after he was due to fly). Looks like he was lucky to get that, being a mere man with the cheek to be by himself and all . . . . .

Moderately drunken post from friend's aparemtent in NYC

I might be the only northern European delegate for the conference in DC that starts 8am Sat!! Lucky I came out here early. Lucky my poster was made in time for me to bring it myself. Hope thsi ashpocalypsse is over by the time I have to fly home Wednesday evening.

N is meant to fly back to UK Sat pm from JFK . . fingers crossed he doesn't have a hellish time, at the moment all flights cancelled, that's got to impact his flight back on Sat pm (east coast US time).

Dear Virgin Atlantic

"Check in online open 24 - 2 hours before scheduled departure time."

Is about the most unclear way you could have possibly said that! It could mean 22 hours or 26 hours before (seeing as time is going backwards, minus could go back further)

Why not just '22 hours before'?

The bloody paper of doom that has dogged my life for months is finally submitted and I managed not to kill anyone!!! I'm free!!! (for a few weeks, until we get the reviewers comments, which I suspect will be depressing)

Now to get rid of this headache I've had for a week before I go to Washington on Sunday

I just need to type this up to get the frustration out plus now I have something to link to that tells the whole story ;-). It's really boring, hence most of the mind numbing details are behind the cut.

”rant” )
I kind of just want to drop it for my mental health and take the £12 hit I don’t fucking care about the bloody cheap ass jeans anymore, but it’s a matter of principle – I don’t want them to get away with it or for me to look bad to paypal by dropping it!!!


And by the way, ebay seller “boutiqe1express” the word you are looking for is ‘ADVISE’. ‘To advice’ is not a fucking verb.
