A response, because I can

I like procrastination.

I has been decided my apparent Emoness is just an unfortunate collision between my punk/goth sensibilitys and a hefty dosage of pirate (hence the love of all things striped). I'm prolly to old to be emo anyways.

But my point is clearly i am a pirate:

Are you a Pirate?

You are Captain Flint. Most cruel and wickedhearted pirate of them all, you are. Indeed, though only a pirate of imagination are ya my lad. (Or lass, as the case may be.)You are a Captain though and as such command power. I was going to say respect but fear is a rather more accurate term. Isn't it, sneaky?

I've been Worried

First off this posting ever day thing has kinda gone to hell, oh well, i have exams to study for and a boring life!!

But the subject of this post is to assauge a fear i have had for a while. Its difficult for me to say this but i was worried i might be *whisper* Emo...

I kno i kno the outrage, but well I do like the pink and black stripes or the red and black stripes, but that can be attributed to my inner pirate, however the more worrying is the bands sneaking on to my playlists, Panic at the disco, fall out boy and most recently and concerningly My Chemical Romance. so i felt something had tobe done.

I did what anyone would do under the circumstances i turned to the internet for self diagnosis. seems there are many quizzes as to whether one is Emo, the results were thus:

Are You Emo?

You are 39% Emo. Ha Ha!

Whiner baby.

Stop your whining and grab a tissue. Suck it up princess. You can do better, don't you think? Oh well.. anyway.. thanks for playing...

How Emo Are You
Quizzes for MySpace

Your EMO Test (How Emo Are You?) Purity Test Results
You answered "yes" to 16 of 50 questions, with a total value of 16 points out of 53, making you 69.8% HAPPINESS pure; that is, you are 69.8% pure in the EMO domain (you have 30.2% EMO in you).
According to the scoring guide, your EMO experience level is: GLUM

You are almost emo. You listen to music with emo lyrics like Linkin Park (crawling in my skin) but haven't really ventured into the acoustic sounds of the true emo audiophile. You might have shaggy hair, but only because you're lazy, not really because you strive for emo-ness.

It would appear I am not emo, this is good.

I still wouldnt let me loose in Hot topic tho...

I like pink

What kind of knitting needles are you?

You are pink aluminum.Retro, straightforward and fun, you love classic things. If they're 99 cents at Goodwill all the better! You are moved by striking colors and tasty morsels, and you like a stitch-n-bitch session in the sun. Just remember, while you're being kitschy cool, don't get too cold. Ice cubes are best kept in your cocktails, baby!

Upon the oddness of my father

My dad decided he wanted to cycle to school, but as this involved buggering big hills (or certain death) he decided against a more traditional style bike and bougth this bad boy:Tis a hybrid, electricy job, which you can either have powered, assisted pedal or just plain pedalling.
Thus he has taken to stoating about on it! In the week and a bit he's had it he's acrued nearly 100miles!

(its actually kinda fun wheeching about on it but shh, i still think he's weird)

I had a copy of winter 06 IK on my bed one day that Katy was visiting, she started flicking as is her ilk and encountered the tweed beret pattern, she declared her desire for such a hat and thus it was:Yarn is leftover New Lanark stuffs from Durrow, isnt she cute as a button.

Sad to say the hat looks far better on her than me, i lack thehair to pull it off...
