Well, here we are again. I'm going on holiday on Friday, so today is my Wednesday, sort of.
How's it going?
We *might* be getting people in to start on our kitchen today. But I'm guessing they'll come tomorrow.
Class 9 - 11, going to Leith to see a friend, uni work, gym tonight. Also I'm getting a free graze box which I'm excited about! Anyone had one before? Are they good, or am I just getting my hopes up for a packet of seeds?
Loads of packaging, for what are, essentialy some nuts and seeds. Don't start paying for one, WHATEVER you do?
they're like £3.50 each or something, i'm not a millionaire
with four compartments in, where they put seeds or nuts. They deliver them to your office once a week, with the idea that you will 'graze' at them, like a cow. Complete rip off, something Dragons Den would get behind.
They sound awful. Seeds and nuts taste like pencil shavings, I'll generally only eat them when they're unavoidably combined with something else.
I realised that ATP is quite soon though, and I'm looking forward to that. Also, I get paid just before Zonino, which makes it likely that I'll go to that.
I don't think that I have ever been so tired as I feel right now.
does this make this my friday?
sotd: bang bang bang — mark ronson
I think I'll blow off the remaining 45 mins of the workday.
Where are you going, hip?
what is your preferred shortening of your nick? "hip", "hyg", "gunners", something else?
I've decided that I'm fond of gunners, so I hope you choose that one.
gunners could get confused with Guntrip, I suppose. hip is short and to the point, but hyg seems to sum it up better. I suppose
I'm not particularly fond of my username anymore, but I can't be bothered to change it.
I have the same issue with my real name, it can used and abused horribly.
I've got a couple (literally, they are bf+gf) of friends studying out there until Christmas, so me and another mate are going to go crash on their floor for a very long weekend.
I can only take hand luggage, but this must also include a sleeping bag. Tricky.
I also haven't changed my money yet, and don't know when I'll be able to.
You could wear the sleeping bag onboard, thus giving you a bit more room in the hand luggage
I probably won't, because I'm lazy. Just fill my holdall with the sleeping bag, stuff a few pairs of pants down the side, toothbrush in... somewhere. Job's a good'un.
be sure to go up top of the dumo
so today is my... tuesday
It's going okay - just deciding what needs doing first.
Whatever it may be.
You couldn't afford to go on the bus.
Thefore, he woudln't let you go on the bus.
You're right, that's outrageous.
But I usally save my anger at them for when I'm definitely in the right.
If you don't think that the bus driver was in the right, then you're one of the most selfish people I've come across.
I was buying a 7 pounds pass, and he went batshit mental at me. Then gave me the change that he lied about not having.
I can see his point when its loads of change. TBH I don't see how you can expect him to wait for you though...
if I was on a bus and on my way to work, and i needed to be there on time, and some lad was making the bus late because he couldn't pay for his fare, i'd be pretty pissed off with that lad. even more so if the driver stopped the bus outside the lad's house so he could find the fee.
you're just pissed off because you wanted to do the morning thread and he stopped you from being able to do so :)
- my non stick pan decided to stick ruining my omlette.
- my shelving unit collapsed ruining my nicely displayed books and nicnaks
- my belly hurts ruining my ability to sit at my desk without squirming and writhing like an idiot.
I sat on the train this morning thinking how grey everything looked. So grey.
I am going to move to Hampstead next year. I need more green.
At heart, I'm a country boy, but I do want to live in the city.
I'd probably feel different once I did though.
still worth doing the city life though, for def.
I definitely prefer living in the country
By the pub.
Uni at 11, one interesting lecture and one I find a lot less interesting.
Probably gonna do some work when I get back then play some FM.
Then I'm seeing Wavves tonight in Salford with friends.
Didn't make me gag nearly as much as I thought it was going to. Loved everything involving angry animals... don't want to give too many spoilers. was glad I went to see it though.
Will probably spend most of today in the library once I can be bothered to get moving.
my cold is slowly destroying me. Less Than Jake were AMAZING last night. Zebrahead = not so much. I also missed the train and decided to get a cab from Letchworth back to Biggs. Really need to go back to bed.
They'd mixed it up more in Norwich and Leeds beforehand.

The album with that on is a bit tame compared to the other stuff. I'm well impressed they've played loads from Losing Streak/Hello Rockview.
<3 Pezcore. I CHECK THE TIME! IT'S 4AM
Full tour innit.
Last UK show is in Edinburgh. They've already done Oxford, Norwich, Leeds, Birmingham and obviously London.
Did you see her?
They were cut to pieces on Friday because I was wearing horrid pumps that got soaking wet. They were on the road to recovery but when I looked down this morning, there was a huge blister that had popped and was gushing out some kind of watery gunk. Its realy quite painful and is annoying me a lot because I can't walk and I would like to go to the gym but can't :(
And I am considered tiny.
Hmmm, apart from turning into an utter fucking psychohead.
Who else. Michael J fox?
Hmm. Have you considered a stretching rack?
He's short and a wizard.
You'd probably just magic yourself taller though wouldn't you?
And I'm fucking brilliant.
Just be more like me and you'll be awwwwwwlright.
I think you keep growing for some time up til you're about 20/21/22. I think I stopped growing a while ago though but I quite like my height.
I'm sure there are machines you can buy on the internet if you have that problem too.
Short guys are nice though so I really would worry about it too much.
Damn you 'enter' key.
Otherwise, I have started running. Day three and I feel pretty good considering.
This is just my perception...but I fear it isn't too far off from the truth.
I feel compelled to reassure you that your running will rapidly become much less embarrassing if you stick at it. Promise.
it might actually be the first one i've ever had.
fucking freezing. and wet.
I think they are making a break for it with my socks.
I have cold hands.
cosy hands :)
What else? I was supposed to be having supper with my former nanny tonight but that has fallen through, and so we find ourseleves in the unusual position of having No Plans.
I have a food and wine tasting this afternoon and i get to test out a caviar station, an oyster station and a *drum roll* foie gras station.
I had a dream last night that one of my dogs could communicate to me via a severed eyeball on a stalk. I'm not too sure whose eyeball it was, the focus obviously being on my obvious delight at hearing that black pug likes me better than my sister. As in, she prefers me to my sister, although she probably also likes me more than my sister does too.
I spent all of Friday re-tasting it - but in a good way. Now it's completely gone. I need to have some more. This is unlikely in my near future.
she's bringing ME some home.
whereupon I expect I will stock up for christmas. It's like smooth pate, basically, but something in its richness prompts a massive rush of HAPPY to the brain.
I may have to purchase some.Is it very expensive? When I last went to borough market they had ostrich eggs for sale. I really wanted one but it seemed a bit pointless.
but you can't eat the hugest amount of it in one go anyway! the french market stall at borough will let you try before you buy :)
And spent a stupid amount on I'm not sure what.
it is SO easy to go crazy. Especially after a pint or two of that warm spiced scrumpy. I went really silly on that (as in flashing silly). We should arrange a festive trip!
I sampled far too much cider/wine/ale and everything became more alluring. Not least the Italian man that I was chatting to.
But I couldn't afford any of them, so I bought an awesome pie instead.
I love that place.
There's like a whole shop in Piccadilly dedicated to selling it.
you can just gut fish yourself and get it
it's pretty tasty straight from the belly
It's the wild Black Sea stuff that's banned. The only stuff they're allowed to sell is from farmed sturgeon.
Different countries have different laws about its classifcation. True caviar is I think from the sturgeon, but you can also get slamon or lumpfish caviar. I think in our country you have to say on the packaging (even if just on small print) what kind it is, as teh prices will vary madly. I'm not an expert on caviar at all and couldn't tell the cheap stuff from the sturgeon, so I'm quite looking forward to an education this afternoon.
I just (mistakenly) thought that all strugeon caviar had been banned, and was surprised that it was being openly sold, that's all.
As I say above, it's just the stuff from wild sturgeon that's illegal.
Just wondering what you had meant really, as I'd never heard of any of it being illegal. Interesting!
This was introduced in 2006, but I think that it’s been lifted/relaxed in certain areas with the imposition of quotas, and the expansion of artificially farmed sturgeon and caviar alternatives (eg from salmon) filling in part of the gap, although illegal trading is still a major problem.
And I also had two essays to finish for today. Forcing myself to write about 17th century botany in between throwing up is not one of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had in my life. I still have 1000 words of one of them to write for a 4pm hand in. Ugh.
i presume from tiredness. welcome back, insomnia, old friend
currently trying to write my last short essay before i have to start on the 4ks/3k/8k
Rugby training for the under 8s tag rugby team tonight, in a sports hall that turns the sound of 15 kids into that of an Airbus taking off from 5 yards.
In the meantime work, just seen Mr C from Hollyoaks wander past the office.
no doubt the day will be spent handing over copies of C.O.D.B.O to sweaty paws and listening to a hateful disco compilation. good times.
money though, innit?...yeahboi.
and now it's raining like the clouds just got dumped.
he'd be a terrible boss. imagine the hours you'd have to work!
Unemployed for the third time in a year. I don't know how I'll get through it this time, each time has been the worst periods of my life :(
It also means I can't afford to go to Veronica Falls tonight, massive sad face!
That's rubbish xx
Wavves last night. It was utter fucking shit, and now I don't have any money to go and see Wild Nothing tonight which will probably be great.
