Yet another old Livejournal post

Well, LiveJournal spies, it’s Tuesday night and I’m plonked in front of my PC with a bottle of Lilt, and the updates for today and yesterday 🙂

MONDAY: Business as usual. Didn’t do my essays. Played the Playstation for a bit. On the good side tho, I found out that my mum *will* be going out this weekend, which means I can get Kelly to come visit, which therefore means a-bumpin’ and a-grindin! 😉
If the readers of my journal (Just Dfer as far as I know :P) want, I’ll relay the full details of Friday night’s proceedings, providing they proceed as planned.

TODAY: Half-day at college as usual (yay!), No Francis (double yay!), I sorted out rehersal time for my new band tomorrow (triple yay!), and David Hendrie bought me lunch, seeing as I bought him lunch on Thursday (Foley bless Burger King student vouchers!). Gotta love XL Bacon Double Cheeseburgers. Mmmmmm.

I also bought a MIDI cable for connecting my V-Amp guitar amp modeller/preamp to my PC for advanced patch editing. Thanks to the users of the V-Amp egroups,Ididn’t have to pay for the SoundDiver software too, muahahahha. Oh, and I finally fitted new strings to my Godin SD. The Fender Bullets were getting manky, and I wanted to move up to 10-46s for a fatter tone anyway, so it’s back to the Ernie Ball Super Slinkys, and a nice bright sound for the studio tomorrow, and Delusion’s first jam session.

Well, that’s me for today…Maybe doan up date tomorrow, and one on Friday afternoon.

The beginning

Well, this is my first entry to my journal. Where to begin?

Well, for a start, it’s Sunday, October 7th, 2K1,I’m sitting at my PC in my bedroom while chatting to various peeps on IRC. Today I didn’t do all that much, besides catching up with my friends Ryan and Sharon, who I haven’t seen for a while due to their work schedule.

As for the upcoming week, here’s how I see it going;

MONDAY: Writing essays for college. Possibly doing some home recording with my music gear.
TUESDAY: Half day at college with Francis McDonald, Teenage Fanclub drummer, cardigan wearer, and lecturer. Might nip into glasgow and buy a MIDI cable and perhaps a folder.
WEDNESDAY: Berkley Rehersal Studios in Glasgow. With any luck, me and my band will get an afternoon to rehearse and start to work on stuff.
THURSDAY: Extra-long day at college (out at 8am, home at about 8:45pm. Ack).
FRIDAY: Day off college. Might be meeting a gal off the net, Kelly, who might be staying the night *nudge nudge wink wink*, providing my mum settles things with her boyfriend and goes back to the status quo of leaving the house to me between Friday night and Monday afternoon.
SATURDAY: The Japanese Grand Prix qualifying and probably some other stuff.

So, that’s my week’s hypothesis. I’ll let you all know how it goes 😉
