When lovely midnight strolls turn into '101 ways to freak Brigid out'...

So, I decided to go for a walk. Disregarding the obvious lack of light, Andy's warning about the dangerous Hertford canal route, and my overstuffed stomach (a day at a free Excel food event and a brother who orders pizza on your staff discount can do that to you), I set forth into the night....

Follow your gut and hope your feet don't trip you up

One month till D-day. I can barely go five minutes without getting excited about it. Everyone around me is getting sick of my constant 'CouchSurfing, so amazing, staying here and here and there and travelling with this guy and meeting them there and have to see this and that and, have I...

CHAPTER ONE: Because I was bored

My name is of no significance. However, for the sake of this story, I suppose I'd better tell you. It's Brigid. Now, as far as names go, it could have been a lot worse. And it's fairly uncommon too. I share it with a Celtic goddess, a saint and my aunt, so I'm pretty much okay with it. This...

Marco?

And as explorers we set forth into the Wilderness: Joe, armed with his rectangular gadget of magic and wonder, and me, clad in my husky hat and with pockets filled with essential necessities for a night in the wild (cellphone, wallet, camera and torch). Sacrificing a night of leisure and...

Why I should not be allowed access to my laptop after bedtime

Please ignore this post. It is simply a dull ramble about the petty concerns that keep me up at night. How on earth does anyone know what they want to do for the rest of their life? Honestly, I don't even have a clue what I want to do next week. I don't even know what I want to do tomorrow...

Once upon a time in my life

What are these Brits doing to me? 'Let's go to the pub!' 'Do you want a drink?' 'Ooh, try this one.' I've even had beer. BEER. (Although it wasn't quite as awful as I expected.) But anyway, things have been really fun. Couch Surfing is now my religion. I am half-tempted to build a...

The dullest update yet!

'Thank you for calling Domino's Pizza, my name's Brigid, how can I help you?' Wow, the number of times I've said that line! What happened to the upperclass Lussmanns job? Well... let's just say the accumulation of stress, training period (without pay, I'll have you know) and posh customers...

Always look on the bright side of life (or is that too lame?)

After the slightly miserable end to my last post, things have gotten much, much better. To quote Eric Idle, "When life seems jolly rotten, there's something you've forgotten, and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing." Now minus the dancing and singing bit, I haven't had enough drinks...

Being old

Well, I've been quite terrible with these updates, haven't I? But don't think it's because I haven't been doing anything interesting. Quite the opposite, in fact. Since my last post, I've moved into my brother's flat, handed out at least 50 CVs, gone for a massive day hike (which ended with...
