...until roughly 1.30
was planing to take lunch between 12 and 2.30 then go home about 3.30. I didn't expect the MD to be in so that plan has gone right out the Window!!
manchester - the land of a thousand scowls.
the five people in my library using the computers (people don't take out books anymore) seem pretty happy to be here. bastards.
but it was totally fucking pointless us being open last week.
My breakfast danish was at least 2 days old (there was nothing fresh). As for the office itself, It's totally dead. I won't get home til 7 and I've a party to organise, which means cocktail sausages and plastic beakers shall be purchased on the way home. Bah humbug.
I'm HOPING they'll let us leave before 5..
and said there are rumours floating about of a 12pm finish. oh let it be true.
my boss has JUST got in. pffft.
3 hours :(
did job applications go, and that?
I win, but also lose.
got to get the weekly newspaper finished. We go to press in about 20 minutes though so might have to start acting up and getting sent home straight after...
But I don't mind at all. Means I get to save a day off for the future.
in working the 27th, 28th and 29th.
i'm not sure i'd go as far as to say i regretted it, but it's been SO SO BORING.
some years back and it was also a Monday.
I can tell you this, in the city all the food shops basically close because they clearly realise none of their staff are going to be fucked to come in for one day where most people aren't even in work.
It took me most of my lunch hour to find somewhere that was actually open to give me a very shit lunch. I was hungry.
for buying lunch in the first place :D
It's even quieter today than it was on Thursday and Friday. I simply cannot motivate myself to actually work.
not to split my infinitives. I'm just that lazy today.
I'm praying the battery on my mp3 player holds out until 5pm or it's going to get unbearable.
I'm at work unfortunately. Is it actual legal? Been here since 8am and my eyes feel like they're going to bleed. And there's no-one else here which makes it sooooo much more obvious that I should be on holiday too.
I saw this as good as any opportunity to start posting. It's going to be a long, sober day.
I meant ACTUALLY legal. See? Tired.
vodka + squash + water is your friend :D
I'd thought of this before I left the house. I've already necked too much tea and coffee but it's just not doing it for me. Which means when I CAN drink alcohol it will be excessively and irresponsibly. I'm paving the way for another embarrassing NYE. No point fighting it...
forward your work phone to your mobile. then go home. or to the pub.
unless I'm sitting in front of my pc firing off inane emails to people who 'may' check their inbox sporadically today, it's not considered working. I get paid hourly too, so I need to pretend to work in order to drink. Otherwise I'd be out of here...
There are less people here than on Friday which seems wrong to me.
Pah. Here till 5!
And I got no sleep last night, nor the two nights before that, so I'm like a zombie. AWESOME.
and i WON and i GET TO LEAVE AT 2:30!!11
although I may leave at 3:30 myself as I don't think anyone will notice and I did get here early.
i left my sandwiches at home.............
I left my will to live at home.
I opted to stay up til 5am watching 24 instead.
Was it a box set or some channel showing the whole series?
i keep thinking it's a saturday, but im in work. but it's not a saturday. but i am in work.
it's flying by
building a section no-one will use for an internal web system.
i am digital sysiphus!
anyone out in sheffield tonight?
i took the day off :)
i'm working tomorrow though :(
I would of taken tommorow off, I think anyone planning to go out would have done!
have a choice about working tomorrow.
still, today off. yay!
I'm not working tomorrow. That would be so much worse. As for today, I've only got about an hour I reckon then it's hello mr. drink...
I've eaten nothing but Celebrations all day... Some people are playing cricket, surely hometime can't be far away?!?
I suspect if I don't leave within the next fifteen minutes I may cry.
still no sign of being allowed to go before 5 :(
it's so nice. i've cleaned my flat and had a bagel <3
then i can eat bagels and clean my room without feeling too mature.
then work is done...for the year....
