(I'm too tired to try and work out how to make it sound more Diana Ross)
i was all up for a day of london fun. but the waether is shit, there are holes in all my trainers and i've got a cold.
however, i'll still be seeing stewart lee tonight. i really hope it is good.
and they're GOOD cakes.
I was going to send you some 'get well soon' cupcakes to your work but I won't now! Also, the women was being very stroppy on the phone about same-day delivery. She is based in romford, I mean, for fuck's sake, it's supposed to a recession and you are trying to turn away business you lunatics? *seethe* :D
is that you're not sending me cupcakes :(
so you can continue this personal conversation via text message
I'm due to have a "one-on-one" with my new boss today. He's been here a month and wants to discuss how things are going with everyone. I really don't think it's going to well, I really haven't been form recently (HE SAYS WHILE POSTING ON DIS) :( :( :(
and be a bit more 'cup half full'. It's always hard to adapt to a new boss, and it's also bloody hard to come in and *be* a new boss. He will be as keen as you are to make things better, if you feel things can be improved. What I am basically saying is, turn all criticism back on the newbie. (don't do this)
Work Christmas mean tonight. I've had early nights all week in preparation.
Meal and then Bloomsbury bowling*. Lots of Sambucca.
*I have you to thank for the bowling idea oeuf... everyone thought it was a proper good idea. BUT I'M TAKING ALL THE CREDIT. I mean, thanks :)
For the full set.
(well, I guess it's not exactly career enhancing if you say, "some person off the internet- an internet site I access at work all the time- recommended it")
I've got something going on with my toe. It really hurts to walk on it.
Today is like my friday as I am off tomorrow and monday so a wonderful 4 day weekend ahead. ALSO I just had a nutella bagel and I feel so sick.
did you remember to put some shoes on this morning?
I can't be too sure though
wrap both feet in newspaper. just in case.
Thanks darcy. I'll keep you posted.
got to go to the post office and pay a £1 handling charge for an item that is missing 10p postage...hopefully they'll show me what it is forst before i pay
That and buy a load of stamps for cards, how much is a stamp nowadays?
need the fresh air as the boys have forgotten how to sleep more than 2 hours at a time so between them it's bleuuurgggh all night long
Last night I saw Bob Log III who was amazing. Accordingly I am brutally hungover today, and am using the gift of hot desking to hide from my boss.
At 8:15. I start work at 8:30.
More work stress. Hooray!!!! Definitely a drink at the desk day.
and thought it was Friday. True story.
apparently it's supposed to snow today which I'm really not looking forward to because i have to go out again later.
Also it's the last WEC event ever tonight, sad to see it go ;_; -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2aflRQgwYt0
last night (bloody lawyers). I've also hurt my back. This led to a terrible night's sleep. Now I feel very grumpy.
when i press ctrl+z, meowington's cake opens up in a new tab. what in the world has happened...
my phone isn't letting me send texts or make calls today, and i don't understand why. i've got credit and that. also it's snowing again outside.
it runs across all of the international timezones though, so when I say today, I think I mean today pacific standard time, so i don't reallty know. Either way, I should be free of work nightmare by monday night :D
I need to sleep :/
Im not happy
My head of department brought us champagne for our Controlled Assessment results.
I had to skulk around in the library after school finished long enough to sober up enough to drive home.
Today: watched the test match this morning; going to the littleun's nativity play this afternoon (she is going to be a camel, apparently). Pretty good day, should be.
After taking a smack on the ankle at football last night. My team got a first ever clean sheet, which is rare in a 30 minute 4-a-side league. Team christmas drinks tomorrow!
Work do tonight then off work 'til Wednesday, in order to watch cricket mostly.
Got a big bruise on my back.
how on earth did you get a bruise there playing football?
Shed loads of beer, champers, wine and mojitos means I got in almost 2 hours late today, and I'm definitely flagging.
Got another christmas party tonight, and a third tomorrow night. I'm not gonna be in any kind of fit state come the weekend.
i'm really hungry.
brioche was virtually invented for being combined with egg or custardy stuff

Try getting ANYTHING from a utility company, sky, or other retail delivery company when you try to explain your inconvenience to them.
Because invariably the person you are rude to a) is not really responsible for what has gone wrtong and so feel aggrieved b) it will make them less likley to want to help c) they might think you're a bit common or mogy if you go off on one just becvause your kettle hasn't arrived on time and d) it's just not cricket to be rude to people who are trying to provide a service to you.
tersely polite- good.
Pleasant but firm with a menacing gleam to eye/ edge to voice- perfect
You can get your point across firmly and unequivocally without being a cunt about it :)
Here endeth life lesson #42. (since you missed your bus to class, i thought I'd oblige)
My mum bought a dishwasher that didn't quite fit under the counter, but as she was about to move house didn't mind it sticking out for a couple of weeks. Then the house sale fell through, so she went back in and they offered to meet her half-way with the cost of the next model up (that would've fitted under the counter) which was about £100, picked up the old one and installed the new one all for free.
Great bunch of lads.
This morning I sliced my foot on some glass, unexpectedly showed my boobs to two people and then fainted.
and they moved by themselves!
I know that's what's meant to happen but I've only ever seen it in films and I couldn't stop laughing, even ages after when he was trying to talk serious to me I was giggling until I had tears :)
It was all worth it for the laughs.
and doctor visit. Thank you.
So I thought I'd put a big bunch of toilet roll between my foot and my shoe to absorb the blood. I forgot and when I had to take my shoes off to lie on this bed there was all bits of ripped up toilet roll and fluff everywhere - in my shoes, on my feet, then on the floor and the bed. I didn't explain and kept trying to pick up the bits and stuff them in my pocket.
Hope you're ok. You're such a clumsy wee thing.
