I've got about two hours to do a whole front page. I will probably be on here instead.
How are you?
BAR IS OPEN
a / b
Fucking DiS won't let me log out
On the surface we are going to appear very happy together
The story is a big summer concert in the town has been cancelled due to council budget cuts. THE AXE CUTS DEEP.
I'm sure we could help write a headline
Will Young and Katherine Jenkins did the last couple of years. Why are no councillors answering my calls?
No supports either, for that matter, as big summer concert axed in cost-saving measure
tell us the front page news.
There's a morning thread to do.
(I'm okay, thanks)
how was south africa?
So nice to be in a bit of warmth and have real sun. Did you have a good Christmas?
i feel loads calmer in the new year though.
Vincent got his cast off yesterday but now has some sort of flu so was up all night. Ronnie has got a urine infection, refuses to wee as he knows it is going to hurt. Need to take him to doctors this morning... So, actually quite shit.
Get well soon, Sons of Slicky!
have tried bribing the wee with promises of kinder eggs, darth vader and Toy Story but to no avail
What makes YOU wee? Need to take sample to doc in hour so geting a bit crucial now
take him outside for a few minutes and then back in again
I'll take him outside and pour water over some pebbles from a height whilst trying to catch his pee in a pot and singing TLC...FUNTIMES
if i've had lots of tea and then go out in the cold, it sometimes makes me need a wee.
I remember doing this when I was little. My Mum pretended she was taking me somewhere nice and then took me to the doctors- I ran out screaming abuse at the doctor.
Get well soon little Slickies.
Today the first day of the week for me and should be an easy one really! YAY!
gonna go starbucks at lunch too, white hot chocolate the secret non menu drink for the win!
man i love torrents :)
Despite resorting to sleeping pills, I still woke up at 3am and couldn't get back to sleep. This has been going on for months now and its really starting to bother me.
another thing why I'm a bit naff is that whilst in a tizzy this morning, I noticed that the back of my black work skirt has a big rip in it.....but I didn't have time to change or darn it so i've just worn it to work :(
"darn it" :)
where is the cheeky little scamp?
Then again, anyone who let's a concern for productivity get in the way of posting on DiS maybe doesn't deserve my lamentation.
I feel good for it, although I have a slight cold. Thanks.
It's not a good "thing".
i could come peek at you through the window now when your naked, if I wanted that is ;P
I'm going to stand at the window and wave between the hours of 4 and 6.
Also GOOD LUCK GUESSING THE FLAT.
drove in today because I'm meeting up with an ex-work colleague for a beer and a game of pool. MAGIC. I have loads of brochures to sort out as well.
and I have had two hours sleep
Does your lack of sleep have anything to do with^this?
I swear by it. Can't have you sick for the next few weeks!
as part of the London Mime Festival. I thought mime was silent, there was loads of noise and talking. "GUAPO!" "MAS! MAS!"
It was a bizarre mix of humour (including a frog coming out of the toilet and dancing round the room while the main character was taking a shit) and horror (an escaped monkey brutally murders 2 elderly people by carving their faces off with a knife.
Then I went home and watched Tool Academy. Contrasting cultural highlights
It was ace.
I also found out that I won 2 tickets to the David Byrne documentary and Q+A, which is ace, although it does mean that I won't be able to go to BUG.
Trying to decide if I'm feeling up to going to see Austra tonight at the Old Blue Last.
good work on the tics. i found out they're doing the actual Q+A at the ritzy in brixton tho. shame i actually cant go. quite gutted.
Basically, I have a manager who has a guy in another office who does telesales calls (I've been here for about 7 months, he's been here for 2). For some reason, this telesales guy has taken it upon himself to give me orders on an hourly basis. I've been getting on with my work fine (I know what to do every day) but still this guy feels the need to call me up and tell me what to do all day long EVEN THOUGH I'm already doing it. Its distracting. Also, he's really fucking annoying and I HATE talking to him. Would it be a good idea to send my manager an email just letting him know whats going on and that if anyone needs me to do anything, its best they pop it on an email so a) I remember and b) I'm not distracted every hour and can get on with shit?
He sounds like a bell.
Dear <insert managers name>
Is <telesales guy> my manager now? He calls me up daily and gives me instructions however these are the things I am already doing or dealing with. Can you tell him to stop being a knob cheese?
But seriously, not this^
He'll be fired next week.
but this is the same guy that my manager said he was going to get rid of in January because he comments of everything my manager does...on facebook.
And also - why is your manager friends with him on Facebook?
Why is your co-worker friends with his manager?
Surely his lack of common sense should be a sacking offence.
Fuck him right up.
He has told me I should record my phone calls with my manager after I told him about this conversation when I was interviewing for my office assistant:
Me: This guy was nice. Very quiet though.
Him: You're not having a man working with you.
Me: oh why? Well there was this other girl who I really liked. She.....
Him: What was her body like?
Me: I'm not going to answer that question. She had good comp.....
Him: Did you take a picture?
Me: No, I fucking didn't. She was very well spoke, had worked in an office for 2 years, really nice girl.
Him: Yeah, but what did she look like?
I hung up.
but what did she look like babes?
is kind of worrying...
My brother had laser eye surgery at the weekend. He did not tell me. He lives with our parents and didn't tell them until the day before surgery. He's wierd.
I never did make the pizza at the weekend, but tonight is the night. Gotta buy some flour and chorizo.
PO is out for the count at present, having been struck down by some serious stomach bug action :(. i'm working from home though, so can at least keep an eye. Looks like the same thing that got me at the weekend, and i'm about a foot taller than her, so the poor thing didnt stand a chance.
Will make chicken soup shortly.
Me? Last week was bad times, since on the monday my Grandma passed away. She was 89, and in numerous ways one of the main reasons I did alright in life. So, yeah. And then on the Friday the family pet died as well! Karmic-nuts-kick ahoy! Still, despite all that, and it being an insanely busy week at work, I remain glass half full about the rest of the year - holiday booked and other family healthy. Good.
Ne'er rains but it pours.
and thanks J
I found out at the weekend that my best mate and his wife who I'm also close to had a miscarriage between xmas and new year, which sucked. They seem to be dealing with it OK though.
When they started, they weren't full on trying, and she says at lease she knows what she wants now, and that is to properly try. I hadn't known that they were trying though, so I'm absolutely chuffed for them that they want to be parents.
I like when even the bad things just mean you get some real clarity.
I hope you're keeping your chin up. Give PO a cuddle from me - when she's awake and eating her soup that is. I hope she (and you) feel better soon! x
will see you soon too, i hope :) x
contemplating Japan and New Zealand next December so I can snowboard for a week and then get some SUUUUUUNNNNNSHHHHHHIIIIIINNNNNNNEEEEEE!
I also eekeed out 1000 words or so on a new piece I'm doing.
I even got a lie in today.
gonna start using this ö instead of :O
trying to figure out where the library is to go read fir my essay
turned on my blackberry for the first time in a week and had like a gazillion messages.
booking my holiday to lappland today probably the most exciting thing ever
itäs totally jigglin`
gonna see the northern lights and cuddle the reindeer, gowman. have you seen rare exports? worth checkin out.
My sister was in Reckyavick (can't be arsed trying to spell it) in December and saw the Northern lights a couple of times. She said they're not a patch on Blackpool. (Also, to get cool pictures, you probably need an slr or at least a camera which will let you control the aperture settings).
getting a sorta log cabin with friends and I think just chill out n play some oasis on the guitar-
And you don't see the lights as you do in photos and it happens quite slowly but still very nice. She went to see them twice I think.
so a tautology? Like saying I'm going to my friend's brick terraced house in Salford.
