Ghost ship.

Today is a foggy day in Eastbourne.  When the fog settles on Eastbourne in really settles.  In the town it's drizzling and misty, but out to sea it's thick fog.  Walking back from my lunchtime mission to Tesco (I needed fake chocolate), I decided to cut across from Seaside Road and walk along the seafront instead.  As I came up pasted the Redoubt (an old Napoleonic fortress which now holds the Sussex Regiment Museum), I saw out of the corner of my eye something on the horizon.  Looking back there she was.  A tall ship.  Full rigged, but looking becalmed.  When I turned to get a better look she was gone.  It happened again about ten minutes later.  I have of course seen tall ships off this coast once or twice before but always on clear days and always in the summer, never in spring.  

Well progress.

I've just discovered an e-mail dated 4 April in my inbox - from Study Group, inviting me to an information session, interview etc this week.  I don't know how I missed it - because that account was near empty when I checked on Saturday.  So I have an interview.  I'm kinda nervous already, but I know I will calm down soon enough.  
Ironicly it arrives the same day as my jobseekers review.  and furthermore I may not be able to sign on on Friday because of being at the interview.  Crazy.
In other news I'm enjoying watching the Indiana Jones trailer far too much. 


Today things just seem to keep going ever so slightly wrong. I don't get why. Maybe it's just one of those days. I hope so.

The Fifth Horseman - Prefab Sprout

You do not have to see me to know that I’m around

Pupils dilate, the anxious heart will pound

If you’ve a problem sleeping, well that’s a danger sign

It means your troubled heart will soon be mine

The Bible mentions four

I tell you there’s one more...

Love is the fifth horseman, love is the fifth horseman

Love is the fifth horseman of the apocalypse

So know that I could catch you at any time I choose

I do not feel the ground beneath my shoes

This stallion I am riding, his pedigree, his pride

Won’t let him rest ’till I am by your side

The Bible mentions four

I’m living proof of more...

Love is the fifth horseman, love is the fifth horseman

Love is the fifth horseman of the apocalypse

The evil cold.

I really want this evil cold to go away.  It's starting to get on my nerves.  I'm also slightly concerned that I'm now getting dizziness.  Strange. 

One of those days

I wrote  a really long entry the other night detailing most of what's been happening this week - however I completely forgot to save it to my data stick.  That about sums up the few days I've been having.  Last night I knocked a drink over *by* my phone - which I thought had avoided the worst of it.  Today it did not work and because its liquid damage its not covered by the warranty (bear in mind I've had this phone one week).  So I had to buy a new phone.  Jane agreed to lend me the money and I'll pay her back when I've been paid.  All in all its been an up and down day...
I'm still not firing on all cylinders healthwise which is a real pain.  I'm not sure what the exact cause is either which doesn't help.  It's more that a lot of small problems have all come together at the same time to create a bigger problem.  I'm going to go see my doctor about the recurrance of my asthma.  I also know I need to see a dentist at some point soon - it will have to wait until after I get a job though because I don't think I can afford to have the work I need done at the moment.  It's really difficult finding a dentist as it is - when you have to have metal work, doubly so.  Hopefully I'll get this job at the Passport Office.

Feb. 18th, 2008

I'm feeling generally scuzzy today.  I know I need to see a dentist fairly soon to get this repair done.  The annoying thing is trying to find an NHS dentist is tough round here, and until I have a job I can't afford to get anything major done.  Hopefully I'll get it sorted soon.  
I'm going for a job with passport office - doing people's first interviews.  It's based in Brighton, which would be good.  
The pay is also great - I might even be able to get enough full time funding before the end of the summer - giving me time to move up there properly, rather than trying to relocate in a weekend like last time.  Anyway running low internet time.  Might be getting broadband at home soon which would be great :)

Highwayman lyrics.

 I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.

I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.

I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I'll always be around..and around and around and
around and around

I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..
