The Early summer biking and browsing

After a few weeks of moping and even still not feeling so happy about life, it was a nice turn of events with the weather to go out, although this is just another trip into plymouth, its worth it since well, it might be.

So, after a quickish fap and smile up with what i would dream of wanting in life (tip it involves cute late night mcdonalds trips and cuddles and romance and gluttony everywhere), i ended up getting up and decided to have a luke warmish shower to freshen me up and help me stop sweating, since the weather today is one of those days for the most part. The shower was nice, using lynx excite everywhere then getting soaked and washing myself over.

After that, i ended up having to hoover the lounge again since the kitten who has still not had her first season yet, decided to scatter her litter tray as per usual, which is probably what most indoor cats do anyway. But after that, it was just checking e-mails and getting changed, sure there isn't much else to say here, but all i know is i did apply suncream on as well as start to get packing with what i need. Part of me was tempted to go to my usual swimming spot but i wants a bit longer for a day out, so Plymouth is a better bet.

Then i got my bike out, packed everything up and headed out, since i've been testing the GPS out on the phone, with almost a year since i bought it, it should be able to recorded me better this time.

The journey felt quite smooth, sure i was in a rush in some stages and sure there were some pauses but i managed to get by like last time. But i got there about 11:45 after leaving about 10:15 I got to Drake's Circus with ease then went to the toilet to relax for a short bit and also colden my hands since they felt really clustery and sweaty. Then i make my way to starbucks.

I got to starbucks, since swaggy and pete agreed to meet me here at 12, since pete had lunch from work and james had a break from college from CV writing. But before they arrived, i went into Primark to hope to see if any jeans were on special offer, which there were some for a £5, but i had about 4 pairs so i skipped on buying those then headed back, at that point, pete called just to say they are nearby.
They arrived in decent gear then we decided to walk around and head over to wilko for some clothes hangers, £2 for a pack of 8 were good value, but the wooden ones were better :). After he paid for that, we all were chatting, but it felt like it was time for talking about different things, which is fair enough of a point, more so what we had planned for the summer, which i've not planned anything much on.

Then we wandered down to the Asian Supermarket and it was nice although James said about Rice Milk was quite bad and pete bought some aloe vera drink which is really good for you apparently, Then we walked past a shop a cute friend of mine works in that flavour vapour store and they didn't know of, i had to explain it to them, they maybe didn't care but i didn't see here in there, but i'll eventually see her some day.

We got to the market, looked at the games in the best stall there, then i was told about the best stall that does Jamacian food then we noticed a odd stall that had some marshmallows in chocolate, it turns out it was very similar to teacakes but only £0.50 each, so both of the guys had one and i wasn't really hungry, but i was tempted to buy one for eloise (the girl i mentioned in the vapour store) but its best i didn't even though shes nice to me and i kinda find her attractive but shes with someone so i couldn't do much and she probably wouldn't be my type, sure she loves to eat but high metabolism kind of thing going on i reckon :/.

Then we headed out to get a coffee in Union Rooms before J had to go back to his lesson, which was a decent £1.15 for REFILLABLE coffees until 2pm, which is amazing from a price perspective and addictive if your not careful. Before this, on the way, us 3 saw Keisha, we chatted and some careers advice urban legends then she said "aww, why didn't you buy me a marshmellow".

After we left swaggy to finish his day of college, me and pete walked our way to the barbican, with the weather blazing nicely and other things, it was nice to talk about things, i even said about the sign which said there was a place that girls do kiss o grams and other sexual stuff, which he said about getting a job there, which of course wasnt what i meant lol. but there could of been a chance to get laid that i would else miss out on. But then it was time to part our ways, he had to go back to work but he did say he might plan another BBQ at the house, but he'll let me know either way next week, that might be another night out :)....

Then i wandered into the more scenic area of the Barbican and it turns out that Cap N Jaspers have done most of the refitting and the new area was open, so i looked and had a peek and some cute blonde girl ended up droppng her fish and chips on the floor :(, but that tempted me to get one, so i walked over to the Harbourside Fish & Chips and it was a really good value and quick service, i ended up paying £4.75 for a small fish and chips and a standard size of applause which is some sparking apple juice type drink. After that, i walked to the hoe to eat it, i found my recently nice quiet spot and just tucked in.
The lunch by the sea, Fish & Chips and a small drink for £4.75 in total
Eating that was nice, then i dipped my feet in the water, for some reason, my sandals were making my feet slightly painful and sore, which this did help it, then i slipped on my ass from the seaweed which did make my bum wet, but thats my bad. Then i walked up to the hoe and relaxed for an hour or so, it was peaceful, sure there was this hyperkid and these sort of cute BBWs nearby but nothing much to say here, i did mess about with the GPS on the phone again, its having a better "first time to fix or FTTF" which i like :).

Then i decided to walk about in town, sure i saw some offers, CEX had some ok things and so did maplin, but i was just wondering and pondering, i did check JD but no sandals nor miss blonde cutie chiquita. But i eventually went and bought a cheap AMD Radeon R7 240 for £35, i checked a PC shop near which had a MSI version for £69.99. So i thought i was getting a good deal, but it turns out OSX Mavericks doesn't support it :(. So i have to try to sell that :(.
The graphics card for £35 (actually £34.95)

Then it was more wandering out, i did notice a girl i know and find attractive working in the pasty out. Actually thats not the first time i've done this, moreso when i fell in love with Janine in 2007. But this girl has beautiful smile, lush light ginger hair, seemed shy and just a nice girl to date and spend one on one time with, of course she isn't intrested in me and gives a straight out NO, if i try to want to get to know her a bit better.
That and i went into the the Sweet shop and saw Hostess stuff for £12, i was tempted to buy that but i didn't.
Eventually i'll buy some US food and do a review, but i'm not sure when.

After that, it was time to get home, it was about 4pm and then i got on my bike and made my way back, this time was longer and i did crash but only slightly grazed my knee, maybe its from the seat being too high. That and nearing clearbrook, there was a lot of primary school kids, it was like a mini traffic jam to get around.
Enjoy the route, the GPS was not as good this time :(

Then it was a case of relaxing then a nice tea of a pasty, Potato Wedges and a mix of other things. it was nice and i had a ham & egg sandwich after that too ;). A nice sort of ending to a busy-ish day i would say to be fair.
The meal tonight, a pasty, boiled eggs, ham potato wedges, baked beans, mayo & ketchup
And so that ends my day, its been a quiteish one since most of the afternoon was by myself, but thats not a problem for me since at least i saw some friends, but i know i'm missing people that i know i'll never get to be able to love but i'm hoping to find a way.

its late, i'll see you in another blog.
