mad men :''(
(i'm only on season 2 so no spoilers please)
in fact, last time i made out with anyone was months ago.
and you know, when they're not making out with someone they're just contemplating the essential hopelessness of it all, and i'm really in no state for that
It's fast becoming one of my very favourite TV shows, right up there with the Sopranos and Breaking Bads of this world
I'm going to be looking out for that now which will detract from how utterly perfect and glamorous she is
almost all of them
that might not even last too long
Heavy man, real heavy.
Sky high debts
- job is in a night club, meaning I have no time to make any friends/ have fun. What do I do?
not having enough of a base/too in debt/being too old to start somewhere else
my father is in the hospital for... some reason. he may be losing his mind. we're not sure yet.
i moved away from London yesterday.
my girlfriend is back at the other end of the country.
(i'm actually in a surprisingly good mood, though. maybe because its new TV season and DEXTER and FRINGE and STARGATE all kick off this month.)
I was halfway through rereading Y: The Last Man and I put all my trades in a box and I don't know which box and I really want to read the next one right now.
Hope you get some good news.
And even then, the only person I talk to is my manager and I can tell he's just calling me and trying really hard to have a non-work conversation with me so I don't leave him for another job.
Its getting me down so very much. I am furiously looking for a new job even though its only been 4 days of loneliness. I don't want to go to work tomorrow.
I'll only talk about cats....!
don't phone me.
how is job hunting going?
Well I've sorted my CV and cover letter and I've applied for a few jobs! I'm just going to keep applying for stuff everyday and hopefully something will come along.
and have no job prospects. or money.
and really don't want to move home.
it's not all bad. she made me lunch today!
before i move to edinburgh next year for university
that's the last thing i need
its not ideal but no rent-WOO!
Right this minute. The kids still want to eat the chicken nuggets after all that
LAZY LAZY SCHMAZY LAZY
and the ministers of our own healing.
Cheer up Goth.
and writing about it on the internet.
like, i don't really like dancing unless COERCED under pain of death. So i watch people dance and see how genuinely gorgeous a surprising amount of the girls are, but then see how they're getting with ugly, leering, rubbish guys, and realise they're probably sort of rubbish, and what i'd really like is to have somewhere quiet where i could stay on the drunk side of tipsy and show off my GREAT conversation skills to a girl or two and thus prove how much more awesome i am than the average guy, and they can prove that they aren't just complementary genitals and tits and we can get a long and fall in love.
BUT THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN COS EVERYONE LIKES CLUBS.
I can't really be fucked with them either. Either just go about getting as fucked as possible in the place or if by some chance a lassie has attached herself to me the remainder of the night is spent basically groping one another.
That's what happens in clubs isn't it?
It's far better in the pub/club beforehand where you can actually talk to a female who has grabbed your attention.
such as clubs ( the knitting/hobby kind) and stuff
Go to parties.
I love going to (good) clubs but would never EVER go there with the express intention of picking up a girlfriend. See also going to the butchers/the library/Iceland.
doesn't really matter anyway, it doesn't really make me 'depressed'(truth be told i don't condone this thread), just cheeses me off a bit y'know? It does mean that i get a bit more sleep (whcih kicks clubbings ass) and also save like a tenner a night.
rather than try to pull and I'm a guy.
So, there's one, and I'm more likely to try to pull at an after-party as I can
a) be heard properly so my 'wit' isn't wasted
b) not have precious dancing time wasted
c) sneak off into a 'spare' room if needs be, thus saving taxi fare.
you could meet someone
who really loves you.
So you go and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home
and you cry
and you want to die
CHEER UP GOTH!
Other than that minor infraction (I have to confess I actually welcome the break, nothing really. I'm a chipper kind of guy
I endorse this holiday and expect Hallmark cards to mark the occasion.
All of those health problems are symptoms of alcohol abuse.
and now when I watch it tonight I'll know the result. I feel like a nerdy Terry Collier.
being asked out on a date by one of my customers who I have never met. He asked me to come to Birmingham and he said he'll take me out. He also asked for my number. This is as good as it gets.
I've never been asked out. How depressing.
I don't know why he thought I may just say "yeah alright then!"
My manager has said I should have gone with him and tried to get him to buy more stuff!
Maybe you should do the asking? Ask someone out!
Generally, I only go on dates with people I have met but I haven't been on a date in 2 years so I don't know what I'd do now if I was single.
As nice as it would be, i don't think i'm ready for the whole dating/relationship thing, unless it's with someone who already knows me fairly well. There's too much awkwardness and not enough self-confidence on my part, which i imagine doesn't make me the ideal partner.
Self-confidence is a bit of an issue if you're looking for someone so maybe you just need to work on that and pluck up the courage to ask someone out. If they say yes then you'll have a big confidence boost!
My job. As I have complained about before. It really does make me so depressed. I come in to work every day and feel like crying for most of it. It's not what I do, it's the people I work with. Honestly they are the worst human beings I have ever known. The most recent mishap was with the cleaning lady. My manager called a meeting with her boss as she was concerned that the cleaning lady just comes into our office and cleans the bins and leaves. It was then told to her that a few weeks ago the cleaning lady was cleaning and went into one of the offices where the big boss and a few of the guys working here were doing mounds of coke and drinking. They apparently wouldn't let her out of the office and tried to force her to do lines. She burst into tears and they let her out. The next morning the big boss told my manager that the cleaning lady was stealing and he doesn't want her going into that office any more. What kind of people do this???
Thats just awful! Some people are such dickheads.
that sounds horrible!
would make a good film tho
Grassing is not something I would normally recommend nor condone, but your boss sounds like a prick of the highest order.
If not police, then hidden camera and blackmail the prick instead.
it's her manager
better than unemployment but Christ, it's so turd
and rewrite them for small business websites for search engine purposes. It's simple enough but the pay is pretty crap and the hours are long. Having said that, I am posting on here on company time so I can't complain too much
in canary wharf area...
and they live, like, a jizillion miles away
Dad still incapacitated from recent major operation, won't be nearing a return to full fitness for at least six weeks
Am going to miss a good number of upcoming gigs/nights out/meetups, mostly in Nottingham, due to transport issues
Have a magazine piece to write by next Tuesday and haven't written a word, or had a solid idea
In fact, quite a bit of stuff I'm doing for my blog or other people that I'm behind on
Trying to book a gig but getting a series of knockbacks and date unavailability from potential headliners
Might have a cold coming
Having trouble sleeping
Video recorder broke last week
aside from the fact that it's progressing very slowly and unlikely to get finished in time, and that never leaving the house is driving me mad, having to read loads of newspaper articles about dead people is depressing.
"I was showing a client and I found the apparently lifeless body of the tenant."
"I had tried to call her but the number never connected."
"I saw a woman lying on her stomach on the floor"
"as if she was asleep."
"I could see her left hand appeared to be blue."
"I could see something was not right about her hand."
"My client checked her hand for a pulse."
"The woman was wearing tights and a silver and white jacket with the hood over her head."
"and [she] was not discovered until Monday."
