rock and roll you ate my soul.

Good morning everyone. Zmaga has tagged me with "Good For You, Mate." Thank you!

The rules:
a. mention the giver’s name
b. fill out the following questions
c. name five bloggers who you want to pass the award onto.

quirk: I suck the pips out of grapes, swallow them and then eat the grape, so that I can enjoy it properly. Why the hell would you even buy grapes with pips Dad? Why?

pet peeve: Right now I think I have to say gorgeous celebrities who whinge on about how they were "never the pretty one in high school". We all know you were. You're only reminding us of it by denying it.

favorite song: That is a really hard thing to ask of me. I don't really have a favourite song. Right now I love "I'll Make a Man Out of You" from Mulan. Don't judge what you can't understand, OK?

trend: 's are silly passing things. I am awesome in a way that is beyond trendiness. Conceited? Me? Never.

murder: Ke$ha and I will love you forever. Seriously, that drunken mess excuse for a woman has to go down.

nail color: I don't paint my nails. I'm really bad at it. There's paint everywhere when I try. On the odd occasion that I successfully paint my nails I scratch it off in a day. I just can't resist for some weird unknown reason.
However if I could, I think my answer would be this. Awesome.
Sorry it's all tags here lately, feeling a bit lacking in things to say. I'll do my best to post more regularly from now on (how many times have I said that?). Anyway, I tag: Toongen, Camelgirl, Sanchez, Maly and Sabine. Have fun.

Seven Things...

Catherine tagged me for the 7 things tag. The idea is to write a list of seven things of whatever you're given and then tag it along with a different category. So:
7 things that make me fuzzy inside:
My big green jumper. It feels so comfortable and safe.
Jess and Rory in Gilmore Girls. Shhhh.
"Don't Think Twice It's Alright" by Bob Dylan. A lot of his songs actually.
Good results on tests. Particularly maths tests.
Dancing with friends. Like a crazy person.
Blog readers, followers and comments. Yes, that means YOU.
Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah cover. It's so beautiful.
I now tag the delightful PK. 7 daily rituals.

I just love him. So much.

Everyone must breathe until their dying breath.

How much do you want this suitcase couch? A lot? I thought so.

Today was very relaxing. I had a day off and I did a bit of studying and rather too much TV watching and it was on the whole maybe just exactly what I needed. I'm going to see Regina Spektor very soon and I am so far beyond excited I couldn't even see excited in my rear view mirror. Recently I've been listening to songs off 11:11, one of her really early albums. The songs are so cool and different from her current stuff. Less poppy, more jazzy. You should check out my favourites here, here and here.

I'll just read a book instead.

First day back at school. Oh crap. On the bright side, the holidays went out with a bang. I went to a free music festival with some friends and it was so much fun. We got free polaroids (sooo awesome), danced like crazy and met musos. Hurrah.
I also got to see Hungry Kids of Hungary live there, who I'd never heard before but who my friends are obsessed with. They were really good and we had so much fun dancing even though the crowd was one of the worst ever. So many people just staring motionlessly at the stage. Anyway I highly recommend Hungry Kids of Hungary, so to check them out go here and here.
In other music news, Kate Nash has released a new single: Do-Wah-Doo. I was so excited when I found out. It's quite poppy and cute and I do like it, but I wouldn't say it was one of her best. Check it out anyway. If you don't already know Kate Nash, listen to Foundations, it's my favourite song by her.

Absence Slip

Sorry I've been missing for a while. It's the school holidays and I've been taking a kind of blogger break simultaneously. I'll be back properly when school starts (Monday). Trust me, there's nothing like doing something semi-productive like blogging to distract one from the guilt on doing something actually productive like homework.
I don't have much to say today other than to give you this advice: Don't go to see "The Last Song". Not worth the price of admission even just to laugh at.

P.S. Because you guys are awesome I want to give you an:
