It's time for the another round of Celebrities Who Look Like Animals!|
Keira "Trout Pout" Knightley and, well...a trout.

It's my 20th birthday in 2 weeks, and in a truely mature style I'm having a 90s themed birthday party. I've got the starts of my outfit planned, but I still need some help.|
So far I have the following planned:
- a big hat pinned up with a sunflower - a la Blossom
- crimped hair
- stick on earrings
- a long floral dress like Elaine from Seinfeld
- white frilly fold down socks
- ankle/hiking boots
- a bum bag (or a fanny pack, depending on where you come from)
Can you guys think of any other items of clothing that is quintessentially 90s? Bike pants? Leggings? Flannel?

Do you know what would be ironic? Well, ironic mostly in the Alanis Morrisette sense (eg. NOT AT ALL IRONIC).|
If Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had a really, really, ugly child. Here you've got the two best looking people in the world, and wouldn't it be a shame if beauty skipped a generation and they had a gasp-enducing fuglet of a child.
Now isn't that ironic? Don't you think?

Hello my pretties!
Yes, I know it's been a good 10 months since I last updated, and yes, I am sorry for that. The reason for the prolonged absence was thanks to the stupid school server we were on that blocked pretty much every site we went to - including this one.
So I'll try to sum up my whole year in a few paragraphs...
Countries I've now visited:
England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Monaco, Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium and San Marino (where for some reason you can buy rediculously cheap replica weapons...)
Places in England I've frequented:
London, Cambridge, Oxford, Bath, Gloucester (I saw the cathedral where they filmed Chamber of Secrets!), Stone Henge, Devon and Manchester.
Went to the theatre to see:
Little Britain Live
The Lion King
We Will Rock You
Saw the following concerts:
Kings of Leon
The White Stripes
- went to the Harry Potter premiere in London and saw all the actors
- a piolet friend flew me to Belgium for lunch - and his friend came along too...he was Dave Rowntree, the drummer from Blur!
PS: Sorry for the lack of pictures and such. Jetlag + apparent change in LJ tags = shinyless entry...

No, I'm not dead. No,
Irreparable invalid markup ('<a [...] </a>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]
No, I'm not dead. No, <a href="http://www.livejournal.com/users/fire_bad/28959.html"</a>the plane</a> did not crash a-la-Lost. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update. We've had a problem with the IT department at the school, and our access to most things, like Hotmail, have been blocked (cause you know, contacting your family and friends is SOOOOOOO over-rated).
Huzzah for England! It's not as cold as I thought it would be. I was expecting blizzardy type weather, but so far it's just been a bit nipply.
About 90% of my work is involved with the PE deparment, helping out with classes. We also do a bit of IT and Admin work.
Because my mind has turned to mush, here are some random details:
- I'm one of four GAP students - and I'm the only girl
- I'm about a 40 minute drive north of London
- The students have to call me 'Miss', which I'm still getting used to
- In my second week here I had to break up an almost-fist fight
- In the third week, a Year 7 girl passed out in the toilets and I had to carry her unconscious (a-la-The OC) through the hallways
- It seems that every single British boy is called Ollie (Oliver), Charlie, Henry, Harry, Ben or Jack
- English rain is very quiet
- The streets of London are quite filthy. The ground is covered in gum.
- I was going to go to U2, The Killers and Babyshambles concerts, but they sold out almost straight away.
I can't really think of much more to say. I know that's not much at all, but I'm pretty damn tired at the moment and I can't think of anything informative or witty to say.
I hope that all is well with everyone on my friends list. I'll try my best to get in and say hello to you all - but I can't make any promises. Our internet access is quite limited. If there are swear words or "inappropriate" content, the page doesn't come up. Take care everyone.
Keep on trucking.

While trying not to sound like a wank, kids really do say the darndest things. My little brother, Matty, is 4. My mum is trying to pump him full of Christianity, so every now and then he comes out with Jesus references:|
Matty: There are two boys at kindy who are mean, but that's ok because I'm stronger than them. But no one's stronger than me except for Jesus.
Me: Why? Have you given Jesus an arm wrestle?
Ha! Beth - 1. Matty - 0.
Thanks to gift vouchers I now have 2 new CDs!
1. The new self titled album from The Libertines. I've listened to it twice and there are times when their sound reminds me of blur. Most notable songs:
Can't Stand Me Now
Music When the Lights Go Out
2. Aha Shake Heartbreak from Kings Of Leon. Woot woot indeed! This is a great follow up to their debut album Youth and Young Manhood. The best songs are:
King of the Rodeo
Taper Jean Girl
Milk - my favourite one at the moment.
I am going to be jet-lagged up the arse after the 7th. My first flight is 9 hours long followed by a, wait for it, 6 hour wait in the Hong Kong airport. Then, lucky me, I'll enjoy the quick flight from Hong Kong to Frankfurt that will get me there in a speedy 12 hours and 55 minutes. I looked it up, and 'Catwoman' is one of the in-flight movies. Jesus in a biscuit - it's going to be painful.
And of course here is some very important linkage in support of the victims of the tsunami in Southern Asia.

Merry Christmas gentle viewers!
'Tis been a good day with all of the family ( whitetower, ingole, tree_pretty, eijentu).
It's been a long day, so I won't clog up your friend's list with my details. Basically:
- I got many things from my extremely cool family - including a digital camera (with a memory stick) for my trip! Wooot! Woooot I say!
- I ate 'til I couldn't eats no more.
- Now I am tired.
Dear J.K. Rowling,
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!!!!
Have a safe holiday, and such!

Something screwed up with the flights so I'm leaving with Cathy Pacific on the 7th, travelling Brisbane/Hong Kong/Franfurt/London. Woot - an extra 10 or so hours on various planes. Oh well. I can't complain cause I'll be going overseas!!!

Well well my pretties, it has been a while. Altough I've been away from LJ 4 LyKe 4EvA, I don't really have anything of substance to talk about. Bear with me as I attempt to form a post.|
I'm leaving for England in four and a half weeks! Woooooooooooooot!
Huzzah! for the following things:
Prisoner of Azkaban DVD! Guh.
Lost. My sisters and I all have a new show!
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind comes out on DVD soon.
Frou Frou - especially the song Let Go
My new Jan Brady and Emma Watson icons!
Dear Good Charlotte,
In your song Lifestyles of the Rich and the Famous, you sing about how celebrities with lots of money always complaining. You yourselves, are rich and famous yet all you do is bitch and moan about how tough life is. SHUT THE FUCK UP.
PS. Also, a big fuck you to Simple Plan. Your music sucks so much arse. You make my eye twitch. You are the suckiest sucks that ever sucked. Die. Die twice.
I've actuallly managed to pull together a bit of random shite for this entry. Here's something. Ask me a question. If you feel like you should know something about me but don't, ask away!
