I would be spiteful and tell her I wouldn’t say that I loved her until she was ready to say it again to me, so she knows how it feels, but I think it would hurt me more than it would her..

Happy Anniversary


A little practice time..

January 14, 2009

Evening all,

I promised to Charl that I wouldn’t blog today, only because I driving to Milton Keynes for some hardcore routine practice time. There’s only 9 days to go, so it’s much needed and was even my idea to go. But because there’s no internet connection down there, I feel compelled to unload my mind onto this. I received my first Uni brief of 2009, it’s due in only 3 weeks and it’s quite labour intensive, but I’m feeling ready, although there’s a lot playing on my mind, hopefully I don’t leave it to the last moment like I did with my research. However despite the brief, I have to put my mind totally into trying to perfect the routine… There’s a lot riding on this shit

I’m keeping this post as short as possible so that I can keep my promise, somewhat, hehe.

Well I think I’ll leave it there, but there’s just one more thing that’s got me wondering. I’m a bit clueless on the WordPress dashboard and all things that’s on it, but I saw the referrers and there was something new and foreign there. I had a new referrer.. “Audacious“, not too sure what that meant (someone went to my blog from clicking on a link from their blog? .. WHAT A NOOB) but I think that’s a good thing.  If it is, thanks “Audacious”, I read your new blog, and I honestly think it’s really cool talking about stuff like that, honestly. (haha curious about what they write about now isn’t it? haha, well click on the link.)

At the chance of someone getting angry at me; you should also click the link at the bottom of my page: “Charldawn”… Ok, too lazy to scroll down? Here it is: Charldawn haha. Visit it, it’s better than mine haha.

Good night, I’ll write about my adventure in Milton Keynes when I get back ok.. Miss you all sob sob sob.

“There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live.”

Good evening,

First day back to Uni earlier, and what best to celebrate it by having an all day critique of our project research we were all required to do, ahem. If you’re a past reader, you’d know that I’ve been stressing for the past, erm, 4 days because I’ve been busting my ass hardcore to at least have something to show at the critique, and allow me to enlighten you on how it went..

Today’s crit couldn’t have went better.. yaheyyy

It started off a bit shaky with me having a mad dash to print off my typeface examples etc. and with the help from Charl I was even able to write about the target market of my chosen business. But as the day went on I was feeling more and more confident of the research I did over the 4 days, especially because of the very good reception Charl got when she went through hers. Although I was a bit nervous because my research was done methodically with lots of writing while other people’s were comprised of lots of pretty pictures and bold colours, I still had a really good crit with my teachers nodding their heads to every word I said to them haha.

On a different note, as I was cleaning up at work at the end of the day, I was hassled by the “annoying couple”. It’s been a while since I last ran into the “annoying couple”, but let me tell you why I find them annoying. Months ago, as I was serving on Bistro, I had an aged lady come up to the till and ask for some hotdogs, I serve her and complete her order, she then looks through the glass at the meatballs we sell..

“Oh are those the Swedish meatballs?” she asks,

“Yes they are” I reply,

“Oh I’ve never tasted them, are they nice?”

Me being the nice guy I am, I give her one for free.. 

“Ohhh they are nice, I’ll buy them next time”.

Maybe a week later, the same annoying lady comes to the Bistro again. And I’m now suffering from some hardcore deja vu because she orders, looks at the meatballs and asks EXACTLY the same thing, emphasizing she’s never tasted the “Swedish meatballs” before. At this point I’m ready to jump over the till and drop kick her, but I play along (because I’m a nice non-drop-kicking kind of guy) and give her a free meatball.. What an annoying little bitch. And her husband, an aged man with long hair and a sweatband, complimented with “Gucci” sunglasses, that he’s wearing.. Who wears sunglasses indoors?! Ok attention seeking guys in clubs etc. But not in Ikea for Gods sake! And what’s with the sweatband? Since when was furniture shopping a perspiring activity?!

Yeah well today as I was cleaning, I see them approach and instantly recognize them, or should I say him with his sweatband and sunglasses, and I know they’re going to start hassling. My premonitions were correct as the annoying husband asks me for hot water for his damn pot-noodle and she’s bothering me for cold water, I ignore her because I’m busy cleaning so she just settles for a sip of her husbands pot-noodle. Shame.

Damn look at the time, I should get my rest, felt like a zombie today. Hope you enjoyed and laughed at my ranting.

One down, one to go..

January 12, 2009

Good morning,

This one’s going to be a very quick post, as you can see it’s coming up to 4 in the morning the deadline is just in a few hours. But because I’m working at Ikea this evening, I have to drive my car there, leave it in the car park, travel to Uni, then run back to work. So in actuality, I should be leaving my house to drive to Ikea at about 7.45 am, leaving me with what seems like seconds of sleep.

I’m just blogging to let you the reader know that I’m done with my winter research for my project, god, I never thought I’d be saying that, but I think if I try and carry on, I’ll just lose my sanity and health because I’m already sleep deprived to the max. So yeah, I managed to get 20 pages of research, and no that’s not font size 72 handwriting and no that’s not one side of writing per page. I’m actually quite pleased with what I’ve got down, not too sure if it’s a pass, but at least I’ve tried my best and actually got something to show my teachers when I get back. But how they mark it is out of my control, maybe if I slipped them a fresh £20 note in my sketchbook I’d get a really good critique, but too bad I’m broke and a fucking joke..

Anyways, one problem down, one more to go..

Time for some much needed and deserved sleep.

Oh wait, I have to wake up and get ready now haha.


“Chuck Norris can sneeze with his eyes open”

Let the countdown begin..

January 11, 2009

Good Morning,

Just taking a quick break from my Uni project, haha yes I too am shocked I’m actually doing it, got quite a few pages done already, but I’m not looking to be finishing anytime soon. Just thought to unwind and discard some of the thoughts cramming my mind, making me unable to think straight, thus making working harder, you catch my drift. Damn even blogging got harder. Anyways, allow me to catch you up from today’s activities, woke up, went to work, travelled home from work, watched TV, started Uni work.. STAYED IN MY WORK UNIFORM!! maybe that’ll make me work harder haha, or maybe distract me from the pungent aroma of chips.. ooo yummy.

Well counting down the days till the deadlines of many important things happen, my Uni project is due in in a few mere hours, and if you think about it, I’ve only got a few hours till my performance, well ok, a few is a bit of an exaggeration, but you get what I mean. ok ok, you’ve probably heard enough of my ranting and raving, I think I won’t talk about it for a while haha.

Oh as you’ve noticed I’ve been blogging quite regularly, I don’t know, find it quite therapeutic noting down what’s eating at my medulla oblongata and I think it helps. Hopefully I don’t fall into old habits, fingers crossed everyone!!

Ok back to work or off to sleep? dilemmas dilemmas, feel like nelly lol. But there is one think I need to do, GET THE FUCK OUTTA MY UNIFORM, the smell’s getting too overpowering.

shoo shoo 🙂

“Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.”

Officially Disowned..

January 9, 2009

Good Afternoon readers,

Currently at Charl’s house, we’ve both got closing shifts at Ikea so we’re going to be finishing really late, quite excited though because this is like the first time since we’ve started working that we’re finally closing together. I can finally assess how fast of a cleaner she is because we’re only allocated 45 minutes to clean, and after that we’re not even paid extra if we go over. Me always closing, I’ve come up with logical and efficient cleaning methods, so I’ll see if Charl will speed up times or just mess everything up for me haha.

Anyways, I’m not blogging because of that, I’m just writing about how I’ve been officially disowned by Charl because I cannot line-dance. Ok, I’m suppose to be a dancer, so I should in essence should know how to line-dance; however, I DON’T CONSIDER IT HIP HOP!! So there. Quite funny how I’ve given so many excuses to try and avoid line-dancing, and even on one instant tried freestyle line-dancing, FAIL. So there, I admit it, I can’t. But maybe I’ll try learn in the future, but for now, let’s try and take care of this project. 3 days to go woooo!!

Happy New Year all,

My apologies for not blogging, although I doubt anyone noticed, but I do have my reasons. My flu has come and gone, then came back and kicked my ass even harder. But I am recovering, I hope, i’m at the stage where I have no more flu symptoms like cold sweats, but I am extremely mucus and phlegm filled. I’m constantly hocking up phlegm and destroying kitchen roll tissues by blowing them up, literally. And now my mucus has evolved into a dark yellowy-orangey mass. Something very foreign and a bit scary to see.

I digress.

I sincerely hope you have had a wonderful new year and enjoyed the celebrations, and fingers crossed, you didn’t spend it sick with work early the next morning; for that is how I spent it. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked my new years, as I do every year, but this year I was dying with the flu, and I had work both new years eve and new years day. Talk about owned!!

I have also been trying to train hard for my upcoming performance with my dance group, the Animaineax’s. Quite funny how the spelling of the name changed so often that some of us didn’t even know how to spell it lol. So yeah, pressure’s building up to the point where if I think about it, I get really nervous, come on now, performance at the indigo2, in the O2 on the 23rd of January, and we haven’t learnt much. Owned, anyone? It’s always down to the line with us guys, it’s our third performance and each time we finished the set with hours to go. But I guess we’re just trying to keep it interesting haha. Additionally, the pictures from the photo shoot I did came through, lemme see if I’m smart enough to post them here.

Along with trying to train hard, I’ve also been trying work hard, uni work that is. But with all my other projects and my life actually, it’s been really hard to get going. After many arguments with Charl; she helped me realize something very important, no matter how much she or anyone else tries to get me to work, I can’t until I feel to do it myself. I don’t mean to do it and I’m not doing it to be difficult, but I’m just really weird like that. If I can see that there is no reward at the end of the tunnel and I personally feel not ready to start, I cannot, no matter how hard I try and force myself. But this has always been the way I worked, I can never just jump into a project just like that, so I’ve trained myself to bang out work at the last minute, and honestly in my opinion, I like working this way because it puts me on my feet and there’s a sense of excitement about it. Now regarding my winter uni project, I only started a few days ago and it’s due in on monday 12th January, yes, four days time. OWNED! Now let the brain busting begin!

But it hasn’t always been bad, I did have some very good shopping days out with Charl. We took advantage of the Christmas sales and because of it, January has been the first month ever that I could not afford my monthly car insurance fee haha.

Well I think I’ll leave it there. I hope this post was good enough to satisfy your needs.

Bood Gye 🙂

Morning all,

Tomorrow is christmas but I haven’t actually been thinking about it because i’ve been a bit preoccupied with the effects of the flu. Been suffering for a few days now and it’s been getting worse but I guess it’s got to get worse before it gets better. I’m not sure what I’m finding hardest to handle, the ridiculously painful sore throat, which is complimented perfectly with a chesty cough, a constant cold feeling while in reality I am able to boil water on my forehead, or even the loss of my appetite and taste, solid foods are a thing of the past for me, and I don’t even enjoy my tea anymore. Sigh, and thats not even the end of it, don’t get me started on things like my constantly running nose, or my phlegm filled mouth, eww. However, don’t get the wrong idea, it’s only the flu, it could be much worse so I guess I’m not complaining.

And i’ve got more good news for you guys, somehow, i’ve hurt myself even more.

Yesterday I spent a very good day with the Mrs; she came to my house and looked after me as I was dying. She made me feel so much better, which was much needed because I had a photo shoot with my dance group later that evening and I wouldn’t of had any chance of surviving if I felt like how I did at the time. However during the photo shoot I aggravated a reoccurring pain in my lower back, a bit worrying because I’m only eighteen and i’ve already got a bad back. Normally it’s just a pain that you could just shrug off, making it more of an annoying feeling; but I must’ve done something really bad because this time it was really really painful and left me walking like an aged little lady, not a good look when your trying to take photos.

To battle the pain of it all, i’ve been nonstop taking flu tablets and painkillers, so I’m a bit jacked up at the moment, it’s made even worse by the lack of food that’s actually inside of me. So all these pills floating around in me has made me feel really weird; I noticed how loud and even quite scary the sound of my kettle boiling is, that’s how messed I am. And I can’t think straight, so this post probably makes no sense at all, but what the hey, there’s always next time to re-fix it.

Anyways I think i’ll lay back down again, been awake since 5:30 am, and I didn’t get home until 1 so I think i’ll catch up on the sleep I missed out on. Hopefully I don’t have that fucking random reoccurring dream since i’ve been sick about cutting denim to the right lengths and dancing… God I have no idea what’s going on hahaha

Bye and Merry Christmas Eve everyone.

A Gr7 Work In Progress

December 22, 2008

Good morning,

Wow, so nostalgic being back and blogging back at wordpress; it’s been about a year now since i’ve blogged so I guess there’s no better time then now. Firstly I have come to terms that my blog may not be as popular as others… damn you charldawn!! So therefore I won’t be put off and disheartened when I don’t receive a significant number of views and ultimately stop blogging. So I am now writing this blog for myself and maybe another regular reader, and that’s that.

Allow me to catch you up from when I last blogged, (does that even make sense?) well I am now a university student in one of the best Graphic Design school’s that’s ever graced good ol’ London Town, I am a very hard working IKEA employee.. ah-haaa, sorry, co-worker as we’re better know as; I’m still dancing with some of the best that life can offer and furthermore… I’m still with the little lady some of you may know as Charldawn. Well of course that’s not all that happened but I think i’ll leave it for another blog.

There’s a few changes in comparison to my old blog, I’m refraining from resorting to Thesaurus.com to spice up my posts, but it’s only the first legitimate post so i’ll probably go against my word and bastardize and rape it, making it seem I am blessed with more IQ points than your average 18 year old design student.

Ok so you may be a bit confused by the somewhat random blog title and title of the post, allow me to enlighten you. During my hiatus from wordpress I have learned some the basics of Internet lingo, and their sometimes hilarious meanings; this language has now seeped into my everyday life with me now calling people n00bs when they’re being stupid. Therefore I thought i’d incorporate it into my blog writing. Regarding the post title “A Gr7 Work In Progress”, the meaning of gr7, according to Urbandictionary.com is: “A little less than gr8 (great) but still better than just good”, therefore I see my post as a gr7 work in progress. While the blog title means that what I aim to write will be clear and easy to understand making it suitable for level 5 vegans to take in and digest. This is because level 5 vegans won’t eat anything that casts a shadow. Additionally, I’m known as Lon, to which I have come to learn stands for: “loser on net”, hence the blog name. Hope this clears things up vegans. 

Well I think i’ll leave it there because it’s 2:54 am and I aim to leave by 10:00 am by the latest for some late christmas shopping. Goodnight, or is it good morning? not too sure so i’ll leave it to you to decide.


Oh by the way, as it’s a new blog, I aim to do something cool and new at the end of each post, and what best to do but write a fact of Chuck Norris at the end of each post?! Here goes..

“If you were to know Chuck Norris’ true name, your mind would collapse upon itself. “
