    Leeds has more studios than any other place i have been to!
    i have some friends in chapeltown and it seems every street had a studio,mental place.
    I know the place had,or did carry some notoriety but i found it more welcoming than daan sarf where i normally wander.

    I think the closest to me is Maidstone Studios, where they film Trisha. Couple of mates went on it (in the audience) and nearly got kicked out...

    Yes, but sadly she knows I am loaded..... she was working, she said that she needed loads of spending money though! Her friends family don't have much so I helped out, I'm good like that! :cool:

    Tell her no, the line up is shit this year. Many other festivals that are FAR better and cheaper for her to go to. Unless she goes to get drunk off her face like many many other teeny boppers do.

    If Tatty is happy to sponsor for her daughter's friend, I am not too sure what kind of "repayment" he receives.

    ---

    On a side note -- i find that girls can get their dads to get them pretty much whatever they want but the boys on the otherhand dont get treated as much :shadedshu:shadedshu

    my dad bought my sister so many things but yet if i wanted something similar or the same thing I had to go buy it myself.

    it was hard at first living on crappy £5 a week pocket money, but the tables turned when i was old enough to get a job :) spent a year of doing f**cking chores, kissing ass and beggin my dad to give me money to build a new PC (this was before i got a job) and nothing happend and my hands were all dry n wrinkled from all the dishwashing i did. if my sister asked for something, he wouldnt make her wait a more then a year to get it. why should i?

    but thats how that is in this family. Favoritism isa bitch.

    theres so much internal politics in this family. :banghead::banghead: its a very bad place to grow up. theres no real connection between anyone in this family other then blood. we're all strangers here except for dad n sis. but its funny to watch my sister beg when her laptop n pc goes wrong n my dad cant fix it :) then everyone looks at me and im like "wtf ya'll looking at?!" its funny watching my sis rage when i wouldnt repair her laptop/pc.

    its my personal 'no-fly-zone' I'l repair anyones hardware except for hers because shes a bitch and she talks down to everyone and she treats everyone except for her friends like crap -- she even does it to dad but he just accepts it and showers her with more freebies :p

    man, what an easy life

    Not the case in my household, we all get pretty much the same amount: no pocket money :p

    Its not that my parents never give us money, its just that we rarely need them, and if we do, we can just ask them for some. Money for computer? Well, I got my first computer (laptop) when I came here, because they classified computers as a "necessity".

    One thing I noticed in Asian families is that they favour the child with the best grades, perhaps your sister has been getting better grades than you have?

    Trust me - move out at the first oppurtunity. You'll get on with family soooo much better IMO. I can't remember the last time I argued with my family.

    Oh, I don't have any sisters (by blood), that might have something to do with it too...
