so i sold some concert tickets on ebay (we had 2 spares). they sold on friday and the gig was this evening. posted them on friday with royal mail guaranteed next day delivery. plus £2 for saturday (thanks for that rm). the woman told me oooh because of this weather there are no guarantees now. which is ridiculous - it snowed for 5 hours one day and it has since ALL MELTED. and may i remark - has there ever been a scottish winter when it wasn’t below freezing quite often? N O . anyway, no guarantees but yea it should be there by tuesday. super. sat, sun, mon come and go. tuesday no word. i msg the buyer - are they there? get a reply - no they are no. shit on a stick. so its 7.30pm. the doors are open, the main band on at 9pm- they live in falkirk like 3/4 hour away. barra says if you have proof of purchase you’ll maybe get in - good enough, the buyers get in a car and leg it, i print off stuarts email history and pages from ticketmaster,ebay and a picture of the tickets (who got sent to their demise at the bottom of postman pats mailbag) and the extra tickety type reference bit. the buyer arrives and at 5 to 9 and i shove this all at her (including a delightful hand scrawled note trying to be persuasive to the bouncers signed and all) and she runs off to the gig…
i just finished wrapping all my christmas presents and i’m too depleted to put a picture up. i haven’t been keeping up with advent re: festive postings either. i blame bowlie 2, it was a blast. i can’t even really remember it all now it went so quickly, but there are a few things that stick out, mostly supernoodles on the floor, giant waves, alex kapranos hat envy, mean candy floss machinees and b&s rehearsing while we wrote postcards with butlin’s “billy bear” on. best festival i’ve ever been to, i’m proud to be too grown up for tents and people pishing a foot from where you are asleep. anyway, those days and driving glasgow to minehead/minehead to glasgow twice in four days has made me a tad lacklustre. i’ll be back though, at least the present wrapping is done. i need some tea now
hi! i looked up posts tagged with LUSH & your post came up. i dont really know much about lush haha so do you know when the 'buy x and get other free stuff' is? i mean, do they run this sale around christmas time?
i don’t know if it’s the same at all the shops because i have a lush obsessed friend who is in England as sometimes doesn’t get it. but, for my lush (buchanan street in Glasgow) they more often than not have the free bag on. one time i went and they didn’t. it’s usually spend £25 or £30 to get it…and then by the time you actually use it all its time for a new free bag :) i guess ask in lush when your in the one near you. you usually get a free face mask and 3 free bath bombs. one time though, i think january or something last year i got a tonne of them cause it was all the christmas products they were shifting got like 15 free products so keep an eye out after christmas.
