Not Grizzly, Just Bare



Hello. CONFESSION: I am a little drunk. Drunk off my new favourite cocktail [my own creation, gin and elderflower and lemongrass. As my flatmate said: I am such a DICK. But I love gin so much]. And in this state of mine, I have of course become generous, doesn't that happen to all of you? My tips increase exponentially when I'm drinking. Poor bank account.

I have again been neglecting you, but with just cause really. I'm back in Edinburgh, back revising for me resit [yes, I failed an exam, it sucks. Sucks so hard.] and still, even though I'm meant to be revising, I find myself in a whirlwind of activity. Not real activity. More cupcake-baking, regency-romance-novel-reading activity. Ask me about Legionnaire's disease - no idea. Ask me about cupcake flavours/how people acted during the war against Napoleon and I am ON IT. It's sad really. I vow, from now on, to focus more and save my reading for my fabulous Turkey trip. And to stop drinking with friends. Except for tonight. And my The Beach/Thai takeaway night. What? It's thematically appropriate.

I'm also very grateful to Blogs Of Note for featuring me as their June 15th Blog of Note. Hi new followers! Stick with me, and I'll show you new and exciting music/slightly exciting music and erroneous chat. For now, I present a Grizzly Bear showcase.

Childish Gambino ft Grizzly Bear - Bitch Look At Me Now
Grizzly Bear - Deep Blue Sea (Home sessions)
Grizzly Bear - Too Little Too Late (JoJo cover?)

  26. ThirtySeven - My love for gin is like an old friendship. Sometimes it makes me a little maudlin, sometimes I wake up cursing it, but I always go back. Sometimes I cheat on it with JD.

    thomas - I've got a rough recipe over at my food blog, here

    rtlight - Thankyou! That's so sweet, never thought I'd be inspiration to anyone.

    Lana - I've had to swear off drinking until my exam is over - I get nothing done! Blogging is my sole procrastination now.

    SJD - God I LOVE Childish Gambino. His lyrics make me grin at passing stranges. He's perfect running music, although I have a tendency to mouth the lyrics along to it, which isn't brilliant when you're in a public place.
