And I don't understand why people. We do loooads of fun stuff. Wednesday night was for once a wholly unboozy affair, despite my constant gestures at that dribble of Bacardi that Katherine kindly removed from my sight line. All in all we watched around 7 hours of Bad Girls. 7 hours!! Sometimes I really heart my housemates - *fluff fluff*.

But seriously, Bad Girls is what it's all about. I think it should be added to the house interests list.

And Athens 2004.

I emptied the bin (with Mark - this is Kerry btw) because it stank and had been there for well over a week. I also moved the bin from outside the back gate to the middle of the alley so that it would get emptied for the first time in 2 weeks, although I'm not sure what it was doing by the back door thing anyway. (Btw any plans to get rid of the trolley any time soon, only as a Tesco employee I'd rather not condone the theft...)

Washing up...right...I've done it numerous times and been polite enough not to mention it, however as both Kat and Natalie have witnessed recently it's pissing me off. I'm not here much over weekends, and yet when I come back the work surface is covered with pots and pans that I haven't used, and yet end up washing up. Nick and Kat, your answer to the washing up problem appears to be to get a take-away until the washing up goes away...unfortunately the washing up fairy, i.e. me, has gone on strike and is sick of cleaning up the mess. Yes you did "ALL" the washing up the other day, but none of it was mine, and I don't think any of it was Mark's either, and as Nat hasn't been here that only leaves 2 other people...Plus "all" wasn't exactly all, as someone used one of my red pans to cook something that looks like noodles and it wasn't me, and yet the pan has remained there for the better part of a week now.

I clean the kitchen surfaces on a regular basis and do way more than my fair share of washing up, despite little of it being mine. My parents are coming for me a week tomorrow (Tuesday) and I refuse to let them see this house the way it is. If I have to I will spend Friday and Saturday cleaning it top to bottom, probably alone. So be it. But if ANYONE dares make a mess of it afterwards there will be hell to pay. None of you have seen me angry, and I'd rather you didn't.

Finally, again I mention your doing ALL of the washing up. I recall a time when Kat and Nick sat in the living room whilst I single handedly washed virtually every plate, bowl, pan and piece of cutlery in the kitchen because no one else had done it. I think wiped the surfaces down, cleaned the hob and brushed and mopped the floor and emptied the bin. And did I hear an offer of help in that task? No. Did I hear a single thank you afterwards? No. If you are going to treat me like hired help I regret to inform you that I will start treating myself as such and charge for my services. I think £5 an hour is a perfectly decent rate (I get the same at Tesco) and thus will begin to deduct the amount owed from any money I owe on bills etc.

By the way, is anyone going to pay for the leccy bill and sit down so we can sort out shares payable? Oh, and people still owe me for the last gas bill.

Ps. For cleaning services rendered I believe I am currently owed about £30...

Take two packs of Tesco 8p Noodles
A tin of Heinz Mean Beanz Jalfrezi flavour
Some random chicken type things I found in the freezer
Copious amounts of cheese

You get something that tastes quite similar to the proverbial Fried Egg, Chilli Sauce and Chutney Sandwich (TM)

"It's like a cross between food and bowel surgery."

or as Kat observed:

"It's almost like eating from an actual ashtray!"

Has anybody noticed that the past five entries in this community are solely about alcohol?

D'oh - make that the past six entries!

...that every single tenant of Ashtray Road is *definitely* an alcoholic according to this survey?

Mark - 8
Nat - 7
Nick - 6
Kat - 6
Kerry (the comparative saint)- 3

Should we be worried? Or are students exempt from such surveys?

Dear Ashtray people,

I am forced to bring to your attention that there is no alcohol in the house (except the souma, and to be perfectly honest that stuff frightens me). I am not planning to drink this alcohol, I just think it's rather distressing that we don't have any, much in the same way a small child is distressed when its blanket is rudely bundled into the washing machine and it is left alone in the world and unhappily free of the snuggly comfort of its blanket.

I recommend this situation should be rectified as soon as we have the money to buy some nice stuff, cos I'm not drinking gin/coke/tonic water again.

  • "SomeWHEEEEEEEEERE over the rainbow..."
  • "When you call my name, it's like a polar bear..."

    And I can't remember a single other thing. This entry was brought to you by Coke, tonic water and GIN!

    I did enjoy last night. It was full of candid photographs, drunken-strange-almost-incestuous kissing and sitting on each other. I do think that amount of vodka has altered my brain chemistry for good though.
