Yesterday I went to Blackpool with my mate Andy. We had a stroll around the pier, ate some chips and had a gander around the amusement arcades. There were some interesting things to look at, but by in large it was just tack.

We did visit the Gowrie Museum however, although only one floor was open, which showcased memorabilia from Blackpool's by-gone days, obviously, objects from it's hey day when everyone visited Blackpool for their holiday/s. So that was pretty interesting, although it did feel weird looking back on postcards which would have been avant garde back in the day and now make me feel nostalgic with their drained out pastelles and rather old-style humour.

*Sigh* I don't know, maybe I'm just a product of this so-called 'new generation'. I'd love to be more in touch with the past, I feel really intrigued by it, but I love the feel of the new, if that makes any sense. I like the fact that technology has improved, mobile phones, computer games, and so forth. It's opened up whole worlds, that our predecessors could've only dreamt about. So it's only right we should be grateful (unless the robots take over the world, exterminate every last one of us and procreate to replace every single organism with nothing but wiring and metal).

Speaking of technology, I am going to get my hands on a PSP tomorrow :D yay. For those who don't know what that is, it stands for a Playstation Portable, which is basically a handheld console. I'm sooo excited as many of my favourite computer games I used to play on the playstation, back in the day :p Tekken, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Ridge Racer...all the classics plus more. All of course thanks to my wonderful boyfriend Gary, who bought me one on Tuesday off ebay, much to my surprise. I really can't thank him enough as he didn't need to...I was all prepared to start saving the money myself! So I really must thank him for that, I owe him a lot.

Today I've been busy mainly sorting out my bedroom- my parents have had floor pannelling put in their bedroom so that caused a great deal of upheaval. Resulting in clothes being flung on beds everywhere and so forth. How exciting! haha. So my bed is now facing the right hand side of the wall and other things have been rearranged - and I've taken to throwing out loads of my brother's things into plastic bags so he can take them back to his place, so that I can put my clothes and underwear into my drawers. (no pun intended).

So yes, some very exciting new changes!
