Urgh. And I was 25 minutes early because the bus took no time at all, seemingly because everyone took today off.
it's freezing in here this morning because the heating's been off since the 23rd December. Doors open in 20 minutes' time to the public; it's going to the the usual post-christmas apocalpyse..
I'd completely forgotten that I'd actually started to hate my job specifically, rather than just because it's a job, in December. This is a double-whammy.
I came in early to catch up on a couple of weeks emails
Said hi to the one other person in at that time, plugged in laptop, discovered email server had crashed.
I SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN BED :**********(
I am an office workerraarrgghhskgkjgk;m
i can see the planes flying from there right now
hunched over my desk and sulking. how do people roll up smiling and wishing people happy new year? makes me sick / angry.
Yep, that was a good idea. A really good idea.
I'm going to spend today mainlining Haribo.
I drank so much on new year's eve / day I spent the rest of the weekend in my bedroom, watching films and shaking.
A good day, and a nice way to round off the two-week holiday. It's at times like this that I'd love flexitime to be an option.
was very excited to see he was the 80-1 outsider who was the beaten in the final of the world championship by Phil Taylor
instead i'm posting this. take that the man.
I was 25 minutes late because someone had left the light on in the minibus and the driver had to jump start it.
why do people live like this? this is not right! up when it's dark, out into the cold, go sit in an office while their arteries fur from inactivity?? this is not living!!!!
(not happy to be back at work)
Not many people in the office. But I have just booked a boarding trip to Austria so only a month at work before shooshing down the Austrian Alps.
is a fucking pansy-ass part timer.
but y'know, staying in bed was better.
it's the WORLD'S SMALLEST VIOLIN playing THE LEAST SADDEST SONG EVER WRITTEN x
In order to enjoy the insane amount of booze our parents bought
or, as I've just been told, a "babymoon".
never heard it before, hideous.
Now it's going round and round in my head.
BABYMOON BABYMOON BABYMOON
If you say it fast enough it becomes baboon.
Last two years I've had snow boarding holidays. JUST A MONTH UNTIL ANOTHER WEEK OFF.
- a holiday taken with the key aim of conceiving?
- a holiday taken prior to giving birth?
- a holiday taken where your baby is left with your parents for a week?
- what the hell???/?/?/
at some peace and quiet before the little screamer makes its appearance.
"Oh it's like we've never been away"
No, it's very much like I've been away actually. I spent last week watching films all day and drinking and it was wonderful.
"Oh I'm glad to be back, I get bored if I'm at home too long"
Seriously. Pick up a book. Go for a walk. ANYTHING.
I'm in a bad mood and want my holiday back.
An interview on today of all days. I pity all involved in that process. Including me, and I'm only earwigging.
it's been pretty quiet so far other than a lot of happy-new-years greetings.
i'm so sleepy.
I couldn't sleep last night, so I got stoned and listened to Neil Young until 5 in the morning. I am very tired and slightly spaced out. I could sleep standing up.
Perhaps spending two days drinking Guinness, eating barely any food and working on a Dean XI in the pub wasn't adequate preparation for the first day back at work.
I feel like grot.
if even in your fantasies the girls are reluctant.
(the place i'm working at opens at the end of January)
and the guy turned up and said 'right, head office got the dates wrong so we will be starting next monday, all I need is to speak to people working in membership sales - have a good week everyone'
AND i'm on a 'reading week' at uni....sleepy time.
Although I have got a couple of essays to do
sitting in my brother's room, with two TVs (one for PS3, one for Xbox 360) playing Modern Warfare 2 amid an ever growing mountain of cider empties and takeaways and dicking with people on chatroulette until 4am
kill me now.
My boss's suitcase finally showed up after going AWOL following his holiday in New York. Apparently some stain remover he bought in New York has leaked all over his clothes, hence his being nearly 4 hours late picking me up. At least I got to stay in bed for two hours longer.
I came in rather sheepishly today after having lost my work Blackberry on Christmas Eve in a drunken haze. I'd phoned my boss on Boxing Day to tell her and she was cool so that provided at least some relief.
Didn't sleep too well last night, never do after the Xmas break. Feeling rather tired and just keeping the head down, hoping no one bothers me too much. Almost half-way through too.
In life as well as work-wise.
