I think I'm about to get a serious promotion.
How's your Thursday going?
I'm having a great Thursday :D
I got paid today (huge fucking sigh of relief).
I had a FOUR course breakfast on the london- Mcr train, and I saw some lambs, which made me think- YES! Lamb curry tonight.
At 3.30 I leave the office to go to Glasgow to have food and wine and sing karaoke with my Glasgow team, who I love and miss so much. Work chat will ensue which, at best, will hopefully see me moved to the London office with a chunky pay rise post haste, and at worst, will put my mind at rest over some work bollocks that's upsetting me.
At approximately 23.45 tonight, I will make my entrance into the parental home where two unsuspecting pugs are going to get lots of hugs. *intones* I will not drink too much and drop the wriggling puppy on its head *intones*
Also, being Thursday, it is sort of the weekend now.
MASSIVE WIN :)
How come everyone is getting payrises in this thread apart from me? :(
I'm going to pretend all night that NO, I'm not singing, and then have 4 wines and take the huff when I can't get a slot and pout and sulk, until the compere takes pity, and then pick 9 minute songs by meatloaf and refuse to cede the microphone to ANYONE.
It would almost be worth the trip into town to witness your 9 min rendition of a meatloaf song. Maybe i could heckle from the back :)
Say you want equity, I dare you. It's time young jedi :D
Scrutinise the books and work out whether it would be better for you to get a payrise through PAYE or whether you should take some shares and pay yourself in dividends. It's sometimes more tax efficient- I'm sure your old boy will know exactly what's the best way to get the cash out. That's Lulu's free tip for the day :)
That's a very grown up way of looking at it. I don't ever really think of anyone on here being grown up :)
good word usage though
I've just come off a video-con call with the client I was with yesterday, who has noticed i'm wearing the same clothes as yesterday AND COMMENTED UPON IT. Cheeky git. So, I had to explain last night's mishap and they all think I'm, super-dedicated lawyer of the year for coming straight into work nevertheless.
This has put thursday down from 9.5 to 8.5. I'm going to get soft shell crab for lunch which will pull it back up to a 9.
back to 9.0
i'm feeling pleased with myself as i sent a snooty email to a highly paid consultant pretty much telling her she's done nothing usefull for the past three weeks and has just presented us with the same information that we gave them to start with.
I was 2 and half hours late into work today due in no small part to getting fucking maroculous last night at the barrowlands for LCD :)
I can't really be arsed today.
where LCD amazing? tell me they were amazing.
They were excellent, fucking love LCD. I would prefer if they didn't end on new york i love you right enough but still a fucking brilliant gig. And murphy was banging on about how much he loves playing the barrowlands which kinda stirred the locals into more rambunctious berhaviour :)
Yacht were also brilliant.
I've been preparing for my homecoming byeating slice sausage with black pudding in the middle. If you've not tried it.... you've just got to man. (but cook it properly- I had some raw stuff on monday which, in conjunction with my hangover, made me vom).
Had to buy a t-shirt due to excessive sweating through THE DANCE! That never happens at gigs. Never.
Will you be trying Crabbies alcoholic ginger beer?
Gotta get me some more of that
You guys wouldn't know real ginger beer if it.. something something.. in your face!
The "Frank's" branded one by the Kopparberg brewery is even sweeter. GROSS.
It's become my local now after my old local got turned into an ice-white sports bar from hell.
to try and get a ticket.
youll only 'lose'/gamble an hour or so of your time for the possibility of seeing them again.
Hmmmmm......although the gf has just reminded me of dinner with her aunt tonight, maybe we could do that early......hmmmmmm *strokes chin in quiet contemplation*
I got the tickets for my birthday in mid feb, so I'm pretty psyched for it. Looking forward to YACHT, too.
To be honest if i don't go tonight i'll just feel like i am missing out, and i hate that :)
+ i just got the most ridiculously epic evils/blank off a guy at work... which rather than annoy me (as it usually would) nearly made me LOL and has left me with a ridiculous big grin on my face.
+ it doesn't look like i have to move now after all.
+ got sushi for lunch which is lush. altho some of it has cream cheese in it (seriously GTFO) but i'm ingeniously drowning it out with wasabi mmm. is there anything else wasabi goes with? i could just squeeze the tube into my mouth i guess...
+ currently in planning stages for an awesome friday night.
i'm messing with his girlfriend, but i'm not... t'was so overly theatrical :D
Wasabi does not go with Kit Kats.
I have a recipe for wasabi ice-cream which I'm going to try out soon.
is seared soy sauce and honey tuna with wasabi mash... you just make mashed potato but slam in some wasabi powder. AWESOME.
i think this is very much a plan.
Strawberries and wasabi icecream is what it's all about.
is it just literally just ice cream, wasabi, and strawberries? it sounds mental:)
Plus girls will think you are some kind of gourmet chef for making it when it is actually a piece of piss.. for the fish, just get really thick tuna steaks, mix up a load of soy sauce and a couple of tablespoons of clear honey, and marinate for at least 15 mins.. make a pan pretty hot (not smoking hot, as the honey will burn), then cook for about 20 seconds on each side (give it an extra second on the edges as well if you want it to look seared all over).
but I think he'd be wary of giving me so much power.
Are you guys still going to EXIT?
The lineup is pretty bad so far.
got paid for the fist time since last September
got my phone reconnected
booked Primavera :D :D :D
Had chorizo soup for lunch!
- Come dine with me tonight. i just bought a waist coat and will be smoking while drinking martinis and eating steak whilst listening to a raft of 1950s jazz.
- got paid today.
- interview yesterday went really well
- sun is shining and it's warm
- new interpol song today
- going to shave my beard off tonight.
and then that will go. it will come back though, don't worry.
but we don't have a bathroom mirror, and, although Stirling is full of hairdressers, it is also full of guys with footballer haircuts :-/
although I think my girlfriend will chop my hair off in my sleep before it gets to afro levels again :'(
Yeah you should have an afro!
I can't find any decent pics of when it was fro'd up to the max unfortunately :(
Although I should have invested in an afro-comb or some hairspray or something, stop it turning into this at the end of every evening :'D
I've got something music equipment-related to ask but i'll set up a separate thread about that.
my thursday has been a bit crap so far - I was due to start an advice outreach at our local council offices but only one client was booked in. The client (rather than turning up at the council) turned up at our offices, waited around for 20 minutes, then was told to go down to the council but never turned up. I was down there for 1 1/2 hours - time thoroughly wasted.
although my egg mayo sandwich was quite tasty.
...give today a score draw.
Whatever happened to 'The Pools Panel'?
Should be a laugh, if nothing else.
