A woman was curling her eyelashes with a spoon on the tube this morning.
It was fascinating to watch, though.
(I forgot my book)
It'll hurt more.
I meant to make a hilarious joke based around the theme of "Everything I do, I do it for you."
Is it a reference to that song?
Someone is leaving at work today so MASSIVELY going to the pub.
Tonight, I'm MASSIVELY heading to the coast for house warming at friends. Their new house has an inspection pit in the garage :)
Tomorrow, I'm MASSIVELY writing an essay then going to a Halloween party.
Sunday, I'm MASSIVELY walking up Pen Y Ghent in the Yorkshire Dales.
Over and out.
They have an inspection pit in the garage?
And again....hang on, you're MASSIVELY going to the pub? During the day? A WORK DAY? This is just not on.
I am MASSIVELY trying to not go to the pub tonight :D
yeah, quality isn't it. We're hoping he fills it full of ale and ice.
I learnt at his funeral he built the garage himself. Go grandad!
Going to a friend's flat in Wapping tomorrow night to have a low-key house warming. Crashing there, then a Sunday stroll round the "100 objects which made the world" at the British Museum, some sort of lunch, then back home. Next week I'm going to the East India Club for dinner, which will be cool.
I'm working till about 9pm today though - going out on Halloween patrol with the police.
That sounds amazing!
I'm imagining a ghost hunt with the police rather than girls wearing pvc being sick in bins :D
I'm going to leave at the earliest possible opportunity to be honest.
That flour...dangerous business. You be careful out there, Josh.
I could make myself a cake with all the contraband baking goods.
You could've saved me.
feathered with ground almonds
I'll probably just wear all black and get some kind of hat.
On Sunday I think I'm going to go into London to buy this jacket. http://www.merc.com/collection/womans-wear/jackets-coats-womenswear-ss/product/mary-harrington-jacket-women
I have no outfit yet. I am thinking all black and rely on the make-up.
I can see that jacket on you! BUT HAVE YOU GOT A COAT YET?! Because that will not keep you warm, friend.
Its a longish black one with a fur collar. Its nice but a bit smart/girly. I want something for the weekend/to last me til spring!
Off to PETERBOROUGH tomorrow for halloween drinks
Back to ELY on sunday to straighten my hair.
well behind on my monthly quotas at work so have a lot to do today, but despite that am still posting on here. I'm planning to venture to the pub tomorrow afternoon to watch the football and will also be heading down to the Academy to see Swans straight after. Might also treat myself to a fry-up at some point.
VERY unsuccessful thus far.
My car broke yesterday.
he's got tickets, but they'll be a bit more pricey.
I am MASSIVELY not sure what's going on but I MASSIVELY think I'm going to the pub and then possibly MASSIVELY going to Sudbury in Suffolk but I'm not sure yet and then MASSIVELY playing football on Sunday.
I am MASSIVELY hungover.
I really wish you'd forgotten that it was there.
What are you possibly MASSIVELY going to Sudbury for?
There was no way I was forgetting that was there. The bloody things stood out like a beacon.
I've also got a ticket for the Oni Ayhun/Oneohtrixpointnever/Teengirl Fantasy thing at XOYO afterwards. I'm going on my own at the moment. Anyone else heading along.
Then I'm going to Release The Bats on Saturday and playing football on Sunday.
Busy, busy, busy.
They said it would DEFINITELY be today. As such I can't buy my fancy dress stuff so the weekend I've been looking forward to for ages is looking less and less likely to happen.
Thought I was going to a museum/ossuary/underground lake in a cave on Sunday but then realised this was all a dream.
So I made it through the week! Yay me. In other news I had a MASSIVELY massive fight with 02 - 5 weeks with no phone. 5 WEEKS!!! Apparently they sent me a text last week to say I had a phone ready to be delivered, but because I didn't reply they gave it to someone else. A text? A text? I have no phone!?!?!? Anyway I now sharing a phone to make sure I do not miss the next 'text' which apparently will be sent today or Monday. That's pretty much all my news.
A bit medieval that innit?
when you get the new phone with your old number and have
0 missed calls
I had that exact reaction. Zero. Nothing. Zip.
Though I have told everyone I know that I don't have a phone - this is probably why.
Still trying to figure out things and remember the zillion things being explained to me. My poor brain. Otherwise, everyone is really lovely and my team are really lovely. And they are not anywhere close to my old work place - so it's brilliant! And I can walk to work.
SO: Week one down...thoughts?!!
(I still LOVE that you are coming on here)
Week one has been busy. And being the new girl is a bit rubbish. But everyone is so nice. Tonight will be my first after work pub thing...
How are you??? Also - I will finally have a phone next week - though I am during the day on my number so that's pretty good. I will text it to you!
Although my first drinks outing with work resulted in me falling asleep outside my neighbours flat, because I couldn't get in. TAKE HEED.
Yes, yes text me! There is catching up to be had!!
If it's about what I think.
made it into work only 10 mins late though, impressive!
tonight i am going to a good friends party, tomorrow i am going to a harry potter marathon followed by door work at some club and then on sunday i am going to some cake shop for some monster cake fun.
monday i think i have off because the brigade is on strike and we can't use the office.
Tomorrow - larking around during the day followed by mate's huge party action
Sunday - roast followed by huge chilling
It's gonna be huge, children. Huge.
I DON'T CARE ABOUT TAKE THAT TICKETS SO SHUT THE FUCKING FUCK UP YOU BUNCH OF TASTELESS TWATS.
That sums up my day so far.
Weekend: drinks with work people tonight, possible visit to see my parents on Saturday followed by drinks for a mate's birthday. Sunday will be spent pottering around the house in my dressing gown.
I wish I could still wear dressing gowns. They're the thing I miss most of all.
Why on earth would you stop wearing a dressing gown?
I appear to be allergic to dressing gowns. A common allergy, I believe...
Are you allergic to cotton?
I refuse to believe this as dressing gowns are available in different materials and don't contain anything specific to dressing gowns.
It's like saying you're allergic to yellow.
MASSIVELY going to a houseparty for halloween tomorrow. Hoping for a performance from DOOMHENGE, my friend's improv metal band. They are the best thing ever.
I MASSIVELY bought tickets for the Acorn and Rural Alberta Advantage last night for upcoming Manc gigs. I can't make the Phantom Band gig though ARRGGHHH
I *think* we've got tickets. I certainly hope so anyway, I loved them at Salford in the spring.
Anyone want a ticket for RAA at the Deaf Institute on 8th Dec?
I know you can't wait to see me really
Do we already have them?
so might just stay in
tomorrow: pub, footy, pub, footy, pub, where the scene behind the bar looks like this: http://tinyurl.com/2wqakoj
I had a dream about you last night, you were a small Chinese man and you lived in a house made of cheese in the shape of a wedge of cake attached to some kind of palace.
I'm off to the stalker thread now, BYE!
massive, massive bants.
(you must have seen this word bandied about recently on here?)
MASSIVE, MASSIVE BANTS.
I was trying to make a good impression at my new job.
Bought to you via the sick mind of wrightylew.
I had a bacon roll. I had a good review on my project. I now have more work to do than I can possibly contemplate on a Friday. So I'll do my Fantasy Football team. I've listened to the Arcade Fire album again and revised it's rating to a 7/10.
Tonight I'm having drinks with my girlfriend and staying in a posh hotel - for £1! It's almost like a dirty weekend away, but more likely to end with me fawning over having Sky Sports News again on a big telly than anything remotely dirty.
Tomorrow I head to Birmingham for curry at some F Word winning place these folks wanna go to and probably the fecking Bullring.
My thoughts will be with all you footballers on Sunday afternoon.
put some shelves up
orchestrate the play from an advanced midfield position
I left my baps at home :(
Soup and no bap. MASSIVE SAD FACE.
as the ones I was buying (Kingsmill 50/50) were starting to smell and taste like really nasty pear drops towards the end of the week.
That's obviously unacceptable, so now I'm on some own-brand ones and so far they've been up to scratch.
This is possibly the worst post I've ever made, but I've written it so it's staying.
They're kettle chips as well. :(
When I forgot my barm once, I just went and got a pizza to have with the rest of my lunch instead of replacing it.
Tomorrow: Going round a mate’s house
Sunday: making pizzas. Pub quiz.
They do import a load of nice beers from small German breweries though. It’s great. Fingers crossed for some more Weissbier Dunkel!
i went to oktoberfest one time. i drank a bear bigger than my head and got followed home. bants.
or konig pilsener
or any sort of kolsch
then let me know. and look out for schlosser alt
Tomorrow: Might MASSIVELY do some digging.
Sunday Might MASSIVELY go to the enchanted forest.
That's probably not worth it's own thread but I was damn tempted to give it one.
TONIGHT - Watching Der Golem with a live piano/sax accompaniment, followed by some polish lager and then probably the video gaming equivalent of self-flagellation - Super Meat Boy.
TOMORROW - MASSIVELY going out for Halloween as part of a big group all dressed in a Kill Bill theme. Not usually something I'd do but a crazy 88 costume is hell of cheap and should be a good night.
SUNDAY - Girlfriend is in town, we're having a mini-Halloween party featuing Plan 9 From Outer Space, Fiend Without a Face, Attack of the Monster Crabs and other such B-Movie goodness.
Potentially my best weekend in a while.
I spoke to 'Mr Feltch' yesterday.
Just like last year.
I promise not to make fun of your clothes this time.
you will definitely make fun of my clothes and then I'll run from the room crying
Does anyone massively want to go to the pub?
That's not really massive enough is it?
I'M MEETING THEWARN AT THE MUCKY PUP IN ISLINGTON AT 7.30 IF ANYONE IS MASSIVELY (OR LESS THAN MASSIVELY) INTERESTED IN DOING SO.
That concludes this public service announcement.
how effing crowded the Mucky Pup gets on a Friday night aren't you?
If it's that bad, we'll just move to somewhere else. Flexibility Sarah, flexibility.
Probs see ya there.
I an starting to talk like One of Them. Last night I massively went to this amazing party in a place called the fermenting pipe. I've just has bacon dried in maple syrup. I'm now schnooozing through a talk on corporate governance. Quick sauna and then bloody mart lunch. Massively partying downtown tonight. Massively missing some of you lot and massively present buying on Sunday xxx
Yeah I am MASSIVELY having that much fun at work too.
Could you bring me back one of the Due South types? Thanks!
Tomato juice and vodka, complete with a sex + the city troll swizzle stick :D
I'm going to start a Mexican wave. 1200 lawyers with hangovers in a ballroom is not a fun placw to be. I can smell wee.
I AM FEELING SO FUCKING FRIDAY RIGHT NOW!
Come here and feel my FRIIIIIDDDDAAAYYY!
I found a great boozer in Brick Lane the other dweek where a 70 year old dude of a man has an open karaoke night until 1am EVERY week.
Got. To. Be. Done.
You can't beat The Dolphin, surely?
Actually, if Royter is rubbish (xx), this is where I will be heading next Friday.
I am validating this as we speak.
I may well be rubbish. Next SATURDAY I'm playing the Grease megamix on repeat somewhere in Dalston. This will not be rubbish.
where the locals will actually kill you with their eye lasers if you enter their pub? Sounds like it.
how was buldovaniastan?
How was yours?

I'll have a Johnny Depp, please.
Spaghetti Al Pacino.
Unfortunately it was closed so we tried none.
Reason: one or more categories denied helper='WebBlocker.1' details='Adult/Sexually Explicit'
Is it down the South End just after most of the curry house invitation irritants have petered out?
Also in reference to the post above I REALLY miss the dolphin. Haven't been for ages.
Plus: It's open 'til about 5 EVERY week.
I doubt it'd hold all of us, but it was proper ace. Mainly because the guy running it wore a gold sequin jacket and had a voice like Tony Bennett.
Where is The Dolphin then. eh?!?!
I can totally get behind that.
The Dolphin is in Hackney (no, I'm not a twat)
How's about the 19th or 26th of November? I know personally I'm busy every Friday in December with work / Christmas related japes.
26th should be okay.
I think you should do it. Because my Friday thread got 4 replies and yours got 140 odd!
Let me speak to Xylo first, because I don't know when his open mic is and I'd rather not piss on his chips.
Next week: I'm all over it.
(Open mic night? I shall investigate what that's all about then...)
It's a lot of fun.
Could still do a Friday night out, though. Open mic is on a school night and it'd be nice for out of towners to karaoke the fuck out of our faces. Or something.
(I don't think I've got the best face in the world, but I'm kinda attached to it now...)
trying to apply a bit of vibretto (I think) to everything that comes out of his gob?
But it was in my top 5 nights out ever. So... maybe?
on which grounds he probably would be there.
In fact they had a competiton with a bottle of booze to the best of the night.
The bottle I won was a 50ml Smirnoff, much to the landlord's delight. It was obviously funnier giving it to a noob to the night like me.
I am not a great singer, but song choice was vital for me.
House of Fun by Madness. I could not fail.
Be warned, if I'm feeling this Friday on that Friday I will tear the place apart and karaoke the fuck out of everyone's faces.
But I'll give it a go.
be careful what you wish for.
Last time I karaoked the fuck out of a bar the headlines "were 7 dead and 10 injured"
Turn to page 3 to find out.
killing my vibe.
Going to eat MASSIVE pizza and then see my doppelganger, JD Samson/MEN with some guy I know.
MASSIVELY doing sod all because I actually haven't had a day where I've MASSIVELY done sod all and I need to sit down and organise stuff.
Going to a MASSIVELY heavy Halloween psychdoomfest/party, it'll be sweet.
Tripping to London to see the LDN MASSIVE for a week (hi @walkingwithwolves, @Nestor, @michael_w (hopefully) + anyone else I see around)
FRIDAY: Going to see Interpol with my lady. She came to Texas! :D
SATURDAY: Drive to Dallas. NHL Game - Buffalo Sabres at Dallas Stars. Then, drinking all night with friends.
SUNDAY: Dry up breakfast and drive back to houston and then THE WALKING DEAD on TV. :D
Today I exchanged contracts to buy a flat in Peckham.
On Sunday I'm going to see two of the NFL's worst teams kick the ball back and forward, rather than run or throw, at Wembley.
I have a sore neck today, but overall I guess this is a good day!
I just came round and the pain was there.
I think I'd have enjoyed Darcy's hairdresser, but it wouldn't have lasted long with my current no1 cut.
Tonight and then tomorrow - Driving to Washington to go to the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rally tomorrow and my missus works for Comedy Central so we have VIP pases which I hope equals free booze but should be good.
Sunday - Probably recovering from MASSIVE hangover and coming back here
Also bought tickets this morning to see Prince at Madison Sqaure Garden in December so I am very, very excited about that
