what does Thursday hold for you?
i'm off to Latitude this morning. MAKE THE RAIN STOP PLEASE :'(
yeah, that thunderstorm around 11pm last year? due to our first car breaking down just outside of london and tow truck/evening traffic FUN, we ended up pitching our tents in it. THAT WAS SO MUCH FUN.
im listening to radiohead at the moment and reading the internet. I haven't been on the internet for a while. its weird.
im going to buy a new wetsuit later on.
Which should be nice.
I bought tickets for that, not realising I'll be sat in a wet field in Suffolk, ended up selling them to Jennifer. Well jealous.
I really wanted to go to Latitude, have a fab time :)
I'm hoping today wont be as horrible as the rest of the week, that said I have just realised that one project I'm working on in due much sooner than I anticipated. Eeek.
Tonight, going somewhere SECRET that I don't know how to get to and when I get there I have to dial a number for someone to show me the rest of the way. Then have drinks and come home and have some of the cake I baked last night.
he could find fight club. It was really exciting! But then I realised there was a boxing centre down the road called that.
Girlfriend's birthday today ennit. So today is ALL ABOUT HER. Naturally.
I can't see the two year course thing happening soon though, not least because it works in nobody's favour to have even more graduates dumped into the job market within the next few years.
There will be no riots.
+ Los Campesinos! tonight instead
- Will be wretchedly hungover tomorrow
+ Because Month of Sobriety (ish) ENDS TONIGHT HURRAH
I have a virtual meeting at 9am. I'd better make coffee ready for the 'meeting'.
it probably doesn't involve holograms or massive VR headsets or anything like that though does it?
I just have to sit here in the real world and look at my real computer whilst someone talks about boring things on the phone :( :(
He's not having a virtual meeting but I thought you might like him
I wish I had an unusual pet that I could film doing something cute and put it on youtube :(
But the man at the beginning made me feel like I was on an train or plane. He had one of those soothing voices.
just stacked it on the slippery pavement outside, and landed with my entire weight on my knee. I am now typing this through a slight haze of shock and pain. HOWEVER, I have just discovered the local newsagent does lucozade's red and orange in a *can* (the superior form of lucozade), so I'm just about breaking even today.
I'm having a cocktail evening with workies tonight. Not that I can afford it since St Pancras International are MUGGING ME.
That is all.
drove to London. Ouch. Watched Gil Scott Heron. Ouch
Going to read the new Stephen King lying on my sofa now before the drive back.
Hope the festival isn't too wet. Although it's quite sandy up thatter way isn't it. Won't get massively boggy or anything I shouldn't think. Still, not ideal. Have a good one anyway.
So ridiculously excited.
I'm getting picked up in about 90mins. I AM EXCITED. I should probably pack.
hasn't rained for weeks
we're still in the heatwave (32°C)
wish we had some thunder and lightening
I'm sure we could ship some of our rain over.
yeah, it'll probably be here in a day or three wont it?
Read some books, get excited for going back to Bath and Bristol this weekend and seeing that new Tate exhibition on my way. Get annoyed that I'm not going to make it to Converge tomorrow night.
Think I've seen another vacancy I'd quite like, so will be mostly checking that out.
Who is playing Latitude then? Hed (PE)?
what do you do? why are you writing about vultures? I WANT TO DO WHAT YOU DO!
I forgot to update my details so my magazines and stuff are still going to my old house. SORT ME OUT, SHUCKS. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
I'm lazy. What's their number? What's MY number?
I JUST WANT TO SAVE THE BIRDS, SHUCKS. But in quite a lazy way, if poss.
Your address is still:
Lemon Curd Emporium
Won't there? Say there will.
FINE, I'LL RING THEM MYSELF. You're a disgrace.
passes stuff on to other departments. There's something admirable in his style.
I also command the largest Lapwing and Vulture army in the world.
like they do in Alice in Wonderland?
They also all play rickenbackers, specially designed for those with feathers.
The Vultures with bowl cuts started in Disney's Robin Hood.
cos it looks well gay
Rather than the other films noted nearby?
yes, I did.
Alice in Wonderland scares me cos of that horrid walrus eating up all the baby oysters.
Disney's Robin Hood is brilliant.
My head is fuzzy and I think i'm in a parallel universe. NO idea what I'm meant to be doing today and I can't really remember how you make a cup of tea.
I'm on day off. God-awful weather has destroyed a potential day of adventures.
Golf on TV, cups of tea and redrafting a script is the back-up plan.
(despite crazy dreams.) Last night I asked for a curry "indian style". I had to get into a cold bath after eating 1/3 of it.
to watch music videos and laugh at Adam Buxton vocalising youtube comments.
I’m in a good mood this morning – we won our football match 3-1 last night in a performance of last-ditch tackles, physical defending, blinding goalkeeping and suckerpunch goals against a team of young kids with two substitutes. It was very satisfying.
still looking for somehwere to live.
working at Lovebox this weekend.
If anyone hears of any rooms going please get in touch.
maybe a bit showery, not a heatwave but ok-ish.
i would have love to have gone, if only to see belle and sebastian again...
today is much better than yesterday. we're in the midst of an office move and people keep asking be questions about IT despite the fact (a) I'm not the IT guy and (b) I'm not their manager.
tonight: got to start studying for this certificate in money advice I'm taking. :(
uuughghghghg. fucking shite weather.
Had a bat, and had a fairly substantial bowl and not really any pain. Bit tight today but ok on the whole.
I'm worried about Latitude because my boss is going tomorrow and it's basically going to land me with having to turn out something quite important for the weekend
I'm doing job applications, sending off work to agencies and magazines in the blind hope of some work, finishing a cd cover, getting some pieces printed to deliver to a customer in manchester on saturday. my friends coming over to visit tomorrow and we've decided we're having a Lovefeast (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovefeast) with some mates only with less Jesus and more disco.
