Hellu everyone, I'm Laurie from Manchester (UK) looking to make some interesting new friends on Livejournal who will read my rubbish and whose rubbish I can read in turn! Here's some points about me that might make you either add me or avoid me although why you'd avoid me I'm not sure, I'm probably too nice for my own good, I agree to things then think 'why did I say I'd work a 1495774 hour shift for someone who's on holiday? eek!''

I like...
+ Summer-time. I love it. The whole barbeque and half melting ice lollies from the local rickety Ice Cream van, mooching around filthy pavements and tiny grass verges just because 'it's hot!' and being able to show off cute outfits without a coat/jumper hiding them or worrying about being cold. Yeah. And having my sunroof open and my radio on too loud. That too.

+ My lovely boyfriend Simon. We went through a lot to be together so we appreciate each other a lot. He's very patient, very romantic, very passionate. He loves me easily for who I am, he likes me in the morning when I have no makeup on and fluffy boy-hair. He loves me when I'm cute and trying to steal his attention. He likes me wet, dry, cold, warm, tired, lively, happy, sad and everything in between. I love him a lot.

+ My friends who will feature a lot in my journal. I don't see them a lot maybe once a week but they still feature hugely in my life because we use a lot of chat sites and we're on facebook to each other a lot. There's Mikayla who I've known the longest (19 years, I feel old!) she has her own little boy of three and a fiance that she's marrying next year. There's Mandy  who I've known elven years and who is constantly having a rough patch with her boyfriend who's an idiot and a mummy's boy in my view. She's in her first trimester of pregnancy and I've started looking at baby things for her. There's also Laura who I've known for four years. We didn't get on at first but that's probably because we're both very opinionated. Laura always pulls when we go out together and she's by far the loudest of the three of us. Mandy is the one I speak to most and  Mikayla is the sensible one.

+ I hate my job. I hate it with a passion. If I could afford it, I would tell them where to stick it. River Island is the most horrible place to work on the planet. Even if you have nothing else in common with me except you may have worked here too...add me. There is nothing like a fabulous hate session against River Island. The managers suck, they belittle you, patronise you, demean you and override you in front of customers at every opportunity they get. My journal is a lot of hating my job.

+ I LOVE clothes, fashion, beauty, anything of that ilk. I shop in River Island (fab discount), Topshop, H&M and Primark mainly but everyone always comments that I never seem to wear the same outfit twice. Answer? I don't. I like to mix things up and style them uniquely. Payday for me is about shopping.

+ I'm a bit vintage. I like old films and old books. I like the old attitudes that people had. I quite often say 'Kids today' when I'm not much out of my teens myself. I have a tiny photo album that's full of scraps, pieces of paper, bits of leaves and photos. My scrap book is something I'd like to spend more time on if I could.

+ I love Thai food and sushi. I really want to go to Thailand one day. I'd also like to go to Canada, China, India, Japan, Australia (the outback not the cities) and the Caribbean.

+ FILMS - Labyrinth, The Neverending Story, Practical Magic, Stand By Me, The Goonies, Spirited Away, Conan (Destroyer and Barbarian), Lord of the Rings, Lord of the Flies, Harry Potter.

+ BOOKS - Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Lord of the Flies, Jane Eyre, A Thousand Splendid Suns, The Edge Chronicles.

+ TV - I rarely watch it. But I do watch Bones religiously. I also have all current made episodes of Cold Case and the box set of Quantum Leap. My guility pleasure? Take Me Out with Paddy McGuinness :/

If I had three wishes I would probably waste them on simple things. I would wish for a never ending supply of money and buy all my friends and family things to make them happy and safe. I would wish for some hardworking scientist to find the cure for cancer. I would make University free for everyone who wanted to attend. If you liked anything I said or anything that I am interested in, go ahead and friend me, I'm nice :)
