everybody knows that no means yes

hey party people, it's been an awkward day until before. had a bit of an argument.
but i have also got lots of new clothes that i haven't posted here yet, so please forgive.
here we go, lots of black pieces i found in dublin:

salut les copains, ca fait un jour bizarre jusqu'ici. j'ai eu une petite querelle. mais j'ai aussi pas mal de nouveaux vêtements que je n'ai jamais montrés ici, alors excusez-moi.
voilà, tout ce que j'ai trouvé à dublin:

all from penneys:
black cardigan, €17
black patent leather jacket, €9
jumper with big sleeves, €11
black skinny fit jean, €13

and a classic tune. not actual classic, just mighty fine.

he let me take him in my hands

Photobucket
oh the guilty feeling.... i enthousiastically got all set and ready to go into uni today but ended up not going and feel a bit meh. what i have been doing instead is feeling a bit ill - i have had an upset stomach since yesterday - and trying to tidy up my place, which is not just my place anymore. and, confidentially, it's very much my mess and not richard's. i'm really messy with the clothes i pull out of my wardrobe all around messiness. don't get me wrong, most of my stuff is all clean and well kept, i'm just no good at convincing myself that a shirt pulled out ought to be an orderly folded shirt again afterwards. plus, i bought quite a few things in dublin yesterday, which i will come to later.
and i also have a bump on my head that has been hurting me all night long on monday - i fell asleep next to my hello kitty cooling pad and other cute things. i'm so moany! i should actually be translating various epistulae morales. the one we're working on at the moment is well ewwww and seneca doesn't leave much room for imagination really. ew. spent half of my tuesday lounging about uni with sharika and a long ass time distracting julia from her work. although, i like to think that even more customers are attracted by the juice and creamy delicacies when i'm around. i bet they walk past and think, oh my, i have to have whatever this hot bitch is having. ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh-ah - illuuusion.
so yeah yesterday i went to dublin with my mummy and richard. i got some classic winnie pooh christmas cards with lots of glitter on them. i looked at the 4 different designs, and while doing so, some of the glitter came off and landed on my desk and my hands which is why i posted that first picture. oh by the way, the first picture usually is my bit of inspiration for the post and for you.
i just realised that the only good thing about posting so rarely is that i have a lot to say then (and a lot to translate, excusez-moi les francaises...). back to the shopping, i spent the rest of my money yesterday in penneys of course. it was pretty much my main purpose of going to dublin. i got a new all black skinny fit jean, a black jumper with big sleeves, a crazy cardigan (that i will get as a christmas present off my nan), a patent leather jacket that stinks, but was only 9 euro. and i got the best underwear ever.
behold various recent outfit fitness:

i will dedicate a different post to the stuff i got in ireland. and i will do the translation soon, i promise.
it's a crime i haven't posted the following song before, as it is a true treasure and my favourite song to listen to on my mp3 at the moment. the futureheads (another liverpudlian band) - hounds of love.

you just stay home and play synthesizers

oh i'm sorry again for the delayness. not only was i busy, no, i had spyware and viruses and all things shit on my computer. gutted. but i seem to have repaired it now. nevertheless, for safety reasons, i am blogging to you from my uni once more. and i would like to thank avira and spybot for helping kill the m*therf*ckers.
thug life is still going strong, some lovely friends look up flats for a possible flat moving in the near future, and jobs for the man. thank you! i hope to move out once my beloved has a job because my current place really is a bit too tiny for 2 people. i'm inner city bound this time.
i surely will miss the irreplacable cuteness and neighbourhood of my flat. but i will keep the whiteness and pastels in the new one big time! and richard will get his own proper corner.
anyways, not much to say apart from the above. oh liar! i had a brilliant presentation on monday, done it once more like a pro. you know me. and its freezing in this pc room. i need love gloves!
look at me on monday and today. in the middle, i forgot to take pictures. i blame the viruses.

I don't think you're ever a 100% in the room

Photobucket
dear readers, chères lectrices,


Photobucket


please excuse the delay, but it's been a very busy week. as i said last time, my boyfriend moved in with me last week, and i really enjoy it so far, as much as i could with all the uni work i had to do as well. handed in my other paper yesterday, what a relief. the work never stops and so i will have to give a presentation on monday, write a handout today, and gradually start working on my new papers. one, i know, will be about german with a mancunian accent, and my object of research is very close to me now!

excusez le retard s'il-vous-plaît, mais c'était une semaine assez chargée. comme j'ai dit la dernière fois, mon mec s'est installé chez moi, et j'adore jusqu'ici, tant que mes devoirs me permettent d'en profiter. j'ai rendu mon autre mini-mémoire, quel soulagement! les devoirs ne s'arrêtent jamais et donc j'ai une présentation à préparer et à faire le lundi, écrire le handout aujourd'hui et me mettre à préparer mes nouveaux mini-mémoires. l'un des deux, je sais, traitera de parler allemand avec un accent mancunien. mon objet de récherche est tout proche maintenant!

however, secretly, i was thinking of my little blog and found the time to take pictures, almost every day. and thanks for still reading!

as much as i love having richard around, it's irritating to be watched while taking outfit-pictures only a pro could capture.

as you can see in the background, my flat has got messier. but it's really alright seeing as i didn't make much space for richard. he is helping me out loads, getting the shopping done, washing the dishes, cooking for me. but he's also counting how many kinder bars i eat. we're loving our thug life though, peace out.

comme vous voyez, mon appartement est beaucoup plus dans un désordre, mais ca va puis que je n'avais pas rangé un gros espace pour richard. il m'aide beaucoup, il fait les courses, il fait la vaselle, il prépare des repas pour moi. mais aussi, il compte combien de barres kinder je mange. on aime cette thug life, peace out.

lastly, my song of the moment. dreamy, leafy, pretty.

ps: bought a new pair of black boots today. they look very much like my other ones, but those are a bit damaged anyway. treating myself, you know. and i will treat rich later with a nigella lawson recipe. tagliatelle and champignons and stuff. i'm a lovely housewife innit.
