I took part in a Nationwide blog today, and as this is also my blog, I’m going to post it here too. You can take part by clicking here.

I was woken up at around 7’o’clock by my dog barking this morning, my step-dad had come home from work, but he’d forgotten to take some keys so that’s why he was knocking… to be let in. Then my mum came upstairs to get my sister’s iPod Nano out of my room because I had been listening to it the night before. When I was woken up at the more comfortable time of 9’o’clock by my alarm, I went downstairs and was met by the living room furniture where it shouldn’t be. My mum and step-dad were measuring the room to see if the new table they are ordering to be delivered before Christmas will fit… they moved around some furniture so it would, and now I am blogging from that very room, in a place where I have never sat before… so yes, indeed October 17 was a momentous day! At around 1pm I went into Leeds to take back that iPod Nano on my sister’s behalf, as it only turns out the store had sold a pre-owned iPod Nano as brand new to my sister the day before! After that I bought some clothes and a new hat and some gloves, over all I guess I would have spent almost £100 today, which is very unlike me, but that’s good otherwise I would end up owing the bank money and going into overdraft! On the way home I had to go through Victoria Quarters to get back to my car and there was a lot of commotion and a crowd. It turns out Marilyn Manson’s wife was posing for press to promote the 10th Birthday of Harvey Nichols in Leeds.. and later on that night she would be stripping! There was a big glass of champagne, which I assume she’s playing around naked in right about now… Where was I? Yes, when I came home I watched some of my DVD I bought, American Dad, and then I saw on Newsround that there was this website that was collecting blogs for October 17 so I decided to post one myself, since I already have a blog on my own website. Then I watched Neighbours and, afterwards, persuaded my sister to let me film her for my home made horror film I’m in the middle of editing on my computer. In the bit I filmed she was acting as if she’d been locked in the cellar and was banging on the door and then she finds a human skull buried in the cellar! Once I had finished filming her, I came online to check my e-mails, 20 spam ones since the last time I checked them, and speak to some of my friends online. Then, I remembered to post a diary of my day before I forget it all. Tonight I’m going to watch Family Guy before I go to sleep at around 12:30 (early, for me) so I can wake up early and wish my sister a happy Birthay before she goes to school tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
