Okay then, I have some updates.  First of all, due to lack of money, I never went to the spiritualist church thingy in the end, and I decided to save my money for an emergency.  Weekend was practically wasted due to lack of money, but oh well.  Monday didsn't really hold much in the way of accomplishment either, although I did get 30 (out of 35) quid my flatmate owes me, which is a good start.  I also found somewhere to get my digital camera instantly, and for 100 quid plus locally as well, score :D  Linky here.  Tomorrow I'll be calling up the insurance people to see if I can get the monetary value of my old camera, minus the 25 quid excess (45) sent to me as a cheque, meaning I get my camera for 55 quid, with deductions.  I also need to get the ball rolling at UEL with regards to recovering my money, plus I need to go and get the camera, so tomorrow'll be much more active, so may be an early night for me *gasp!*  I also need to top up my Oyster card, although regarding travel, I'll have to be careful come Thursday as there's a Tube strike on, dammit. :|

So yeah, gonna be busy tomorrow for sure, heh.

So yeah, while I'm up writing about 11+ days worth of stuff, I'm going to bring this up to date.  Anyway, I've done my Asda shopping at this point, cost me about 94 quid, between getting stuff to fill up my cupboard and a couple of magazines and DVDs (Aliens quadrology was a steal at 16 quid!).  I ended up being gone for oer 3 hours, but before all that, while I was waiting for my bus, some 14-15 year old kid wanted me to get him cigarettes for his sister, which I constantly said "no" to, but he constantly pestered me, until about 20 minutes later, where he said that I was pissing him off, and that I was fucking him about.  I replied that I wasn't.  He also commented on the look that I gave him at the time, which must have been an intimidating look if he were to comment on it in that capacity!  The fire burns brightly once more in my eyes, it seems... which is most certainly a goood thing.  I did think he was going to go for me at one point (along with his mate, who in fairness, seemed decent enough), but he kinda left me alone after telling me I' be waiting for the bus a while, and that was about 10-15 minutes before my bus came, then yeah shopping.  I also got Advent Children, then got a taxi home.

Not really much else happened... so yeah, that's it till the other entry, which'll be before this one >.>

I decided in the interests of... stuff, I'm moving more recent stuff here, so here's a continuation:

On the camera front, I'm now considering the Fujifilm Finepix F20 (or here) as a strong runner for the camera I'll choose, and so far it fulfills a lot of what I need, which is good.  On Sunday night, I watched Interstella 5555 which is composed of all the videos on Daft Punk's Discovery album, which was pretty damn cool. Finally got to see them all for once.  On Monday night, I had my first saveloy, and it reminded me of a hot dog actually, also started to like spam fritters as well, and I'm also addicted to a drink called Rio, which is mixed tropical fruits, which is only sold in my local chip shop.  Anyway, today I plan on finally tidying my room and doing my laundry, as well as bringing back my battery.  Mum is coming up to London tomorrow, and I am looking at going down to them on Thursday, if I can afford it, so we'll see how that goes.  One thing I should mention as well is that I've been getting cheekier and more confidant as of late, which is good.  I should prolly mention as well that I have finally started to appriciate Madcap's Flaming Duty from Tangerine Dream.  It's also taken me about 5-6 days to write the entry to summarise what happened while I was in Ireland now, go figure.

Mum was supposed to come up Wednesday with my nan and 2 sisters, but she called up at about 8:30am saying that it was going to rain that, although I don't think it has yet, seems sunny!  It ended up raining in the evening though!  They'll be up tomorrow now (minus my nan - who hates London), which provides me with an opportunity to do my laundry this morning, shopping and my room.  Tomorrow I'll get that Fujifilm, seeing as it's the best camera for me in the sub-£100 range, especially with the high ISO rating.

So yeah, it's been 12 days since I posted here, and surprisingly, all things considered, not a hell of a lot has happened, but a fair bit has, if that makes sense at all.  Anyway, I had so much fun getting a ticket, I ended up departing at 08:30 Friday (the 3rd) and arriving at about 18:00 in Dublin, where I went to Tallaght, and got picked up from outside The Square and had a chat with him along the way.  Was supposed to go out with him for some beers, but as soon as my head hit the pillow I was out like a light!  The following morning, I woke up at 830am, watched some TV, decided to go back to bed, then woke up at 11:30, and departed at 12:00, getting a lift from my mum's boyfriend to Tullamore town centre.  I made my way to the station, then got a taxi the rest of the way, seeing as I expected I'd have to work the second I got there.  After I got there, I got stiopped by the security people, where I said hi to Mark, the head security dude and got let in, where I then went to the kitchen to make it known that I had arrived, where I got to meet Megan for the first time, and she gave me a hug, although she didn't floor me like she said she would, although considering many people were in the kitchen, that would be awkward... one thing I forgot to mention is that I was informed by Colom that I was late for my shift, although it was a 10pm-4am shift!  He was just messing with me though, so it's all good.


And that's pretty much happened between the entry ahead of this one, and the one before it where this'll go in between.  Can't remember what else, but I figure it's enough now, isn't it?

So yeah, now I have to decide between three cameras to replace my broken one.  I have a choice between:

Canon Powershot A450 - http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xFS?KW=Canon+Powershot+A450&FN=Digital+Cameras&FD=0&x=0&y=0 or http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/canon_a450.asp
Praktica DCZ6.2 - http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xFS?KW=Praktica+DCZ6.2&FN=Digital+Cameras&FD=0&x=0&y=0 or http://www.bizrate.co.uk/digitalcameras/praktica-dcz6.2--pid418819348/information.html
Praktica DCZ-600 - http://www.dealtime.co.uk/xPF-Praktica-DCZ-600

Unfortunate for me that the DCZ 600 is thin on the ground specs-wise, because it really looks like a decent camera, although without being able to compare all the specs across the board, like the other two, I'm gonna have to see if I can find somewhere that has the specs I need, although I do like the look of the Canon, as it seems to offer a bit more, despite the lower amount of megapixels.  I might compare some of the other Canon models as well to see what they're like, pricewise, as I've got 70 quid I can use from the insurance, then I just have to pay the remainder as excess, so I'm gonna take my time with this.  I also finished off the Die Hard Trilogy this morning, and my laundry's all sorted now.

Anyway, camera search time, innit.

Well, I just called up someone who is going to look at my camera for me, so hopefully I'll be able to get a quote in order to get it repaired, so I'll be heading into West London at some point.  I also need to go to UEL to get money sorted out, as well as the accommodation office to recover my student card, sign a contract and explain the fire extinguisher discharge, so I'll be having a wonderful day out it, seems... I might have to put off buying stuff till next week though, although I do have a Southern Style chicken wrap which'll do for brekkie, yum!

After that I'll need a shower... need to keep in mind too that on Friday I'm again going to Central for BIT2007, and I'm also having a guest over which is cool.  That's really about it at the moment... need to check my bank balance though. >.>

I may need to break into my laundry fund in order to sustain myself for the next couple of weeks, will need to budget methinks... I have 30 quid, well 25 quid from that to last me a couple weeks, and I think I can do it, although I risk going overdrawn by 50 quid.  Anyway, I'll need to get going in a bit...
