WHY AM I AWAKE
IM SO FUCKING TIRED
what will make this less horrible? tea?
also morning! how are you all today? x
I WAS UP AT 5.
Got a 1 to 1 with the boss today, i'm going to ask for a 100% pay rise.
ask for 200%, then when he/she offers you nothing you can meet in the middle.
I might ask him to make me a partner, and then i'll launch a hostile takeover before giving myslef a 300% pay rise and going into administration.
Which means that we can start calling DiSers horrible names and no-one will ever see.
Apparently Bamnan lifted one leg behind him.
Were there tongues?
I'm good today thanks. I had a nice tea of posh chicken kiev and cheddar mash last night, along with a lovely bottle of red, followed by a posh sponge pudding (a little update for people who were on the edge of their seat waiting to find out which meal deal I went for, I went to tezzers).
I love being in work at this time, no-one else is here, so I don't actually have to DO anything, but everyone knows that I WAS here, so I can go home an hour early.
A girl that I fancy on the train was listening to Weezer this morning. Lovely stuff.
and didn't get to sleep until 4ish and had fucked up dreams and woke up again at 6ish and lay in bed tossing and turning.
when i was working i was getting up at 7.30 and apart from the initial 'urgh this is horrible kill me'feeling i have every morning i'd feel ok by the time i was at work. i generally tend to feel sick in the mornings though. i hate mornings, always have done, always will.
i also hate not getting a good nights sleep and i keep not getting a good nights sleep :(
Maybe you eat your tea too late in the day? Does your chap wake you up when he gets up?
i did an actual chuckle (which is pretty impressive in my current state)
(he was excellent at his job but his last employer are tosspots)
and i was more recently employed than him.
it was a bit too weird to describe and is already fading but phoebe from friends was in it, ha
i bloody love cheesy mash, although i never actually think to add cheese when im making a mash up meal.
i always add it to smash if im having a bowl of that for a snack though. mmm cheeese
I love a good tea :D. I've never had smash though, ever.
i would never use it for a proper dinner though.
I'm a bit "meh" - we're supposed to be hosting a caribbean night tonight but two or possibly four of the people who are supposed to come can't come. And the little'un was in a foul mood this morning (though at least i don't think she's got conjunctivitis).
Still, halfway through the week...
but it's not halfway through the week until lunch time at least.
but today does represent hump-day.
just because you're in australia and already further over the hump than the rest of us - no need to gloat :)
i keep going on about this to anyone who will listen but i am so so so excited about moving out of our crappy current place and into a nice little flat where we can have dinner partys and host theme nights and put on amazing banquets and stuff (nb. this wont be happening for a little while still yet due to previously stated unemployed status but i am still planning things constantly in my head and in a perpetual state of excitement/longing)
i dotn know how coherant im currnetly being, soz
someone else is making something veggie, someone else is doing jerk chicken, and someone else is doing rice and peas (which apparently doesn't contain any peas).
i'll need to think about cocktails too.
it's black beans, which im not particularly fond of, although i do really like the blue dragon black bean sauce.
my steve's planning to make us jerk chicken some time soon, i can't wait!
i haven't had beef stew for ages, i remember when i lived at home whenever mum told us it was stew for dinner i'd tend to think 'meh, rubbish' but it would always actually be delicious.
Both are very nice and totally Carribean.
Mojito (Rum, fresh mint, sugar, soda)
Sangria Criolla (its a punch type drink with rose wine, rum, pineapple juice and some lemon, lime, mango and sugar)
Caipirinha (Cachaca, lime and sugar)
Cuba Libre (easy, rum coke and a little lime, WHEEEY!)
i always pronounce it robluv snic in my head
I'm of central-European origins.
but i have a gullible 4%
oh wait :(
It means I am a lot better at getting to sleep.
only discovered i like the latter recently, as a matter of fact.
i just made myself and steve a cup of tea though, its making me feel a bit more human.
also listening to american footabll, which is nice.
I never sleep properly when I've been drinking and I tend to have very fucked up dreams to boot.
but left pubbed/stoppped drinking before 10.
ate dinner, watched telly, drank water, didn't feel tired.
Me too :(
I feel alright considering. The last two days have dented my confidence somewhat and made me realise that no matter how nice, sweet and generous you are, you will still be treated like shit. I'm more disappointed than upset but oh well! MOVE ON.
i think we've set a date for the cambridge outing, if that's any consolation...
I am very much looking forward to that :)
Cambridge is lovely that time of year too... and (without wanting to tempt fate) we've had really sunny May weather for a few years now.
*Prepares for wettest May on record.
I just want to go punting!
I'll show you the facebook photos. They're really funny, if you weren't there.
i can't imagine anything more miserable than being stuck on a punt in the rain.
there are plenty of nearby pubs to shelter in if it is raining!
keep being nice, sweet and generous, some people will always treat people like shit but dont let it change you, we need good people in the world! ... and some day someone will appreciate you for it and not treat you like shit. urgh sorry i am rubbish at talking/typing today
I suppose its just the way some people are. They're the ones that are losing out because they miss out on being treated nicely and receiving treats and you should always treat others how you would like to be treated.
guess what? yesterday morning i dreamt i lived back at home with my parents and we were looking after a kitten for a family friend and it pretty much fell in love with me and it could jump REALLY high to give me playful nips on my fingers and i kept finding it in my room waiting for cuddles and strokes and it was so great and then i woke up and i didn't have a kitten anymore and my heart broke a little :'(
apart from when you woke up and it wasn't real.
I can't believe I have still NEVER seen a kitten! No one I know has ever had one so I've never had a chance to play with a kitten or see one in real life. This makes me very sad!
Kittens are (predictably) one of my favourite things in the world.
The people who own the princess alice have a baby kitten. He is all black except for a teeny white flash- like mildred hubble's kitty. I played with him after bingo on sunday night. I lay on the floor and covered myself in catnip toys and started rolling about. He shredded my boob and neck but I still love him.
I dreamt last night I had a baby. I was very very relieved when I woke up, but now I feel an odd sense of loss. Odd and spooky. I am pondering the meaning/futility of life.
that is just awful! why dont you get yourself a kitten? i cannot wait to be in a position to have pets!
there used to be this cool metal pub in reading that steve and i would frequent and it had a pubdog and a pubkitten! it was such a tiny little thing (the kitten, the dog was huge!) i remember spending hours playing, it would go crazy when we dangled a straw around it, jumping all over the place trying to catch it :'D
i havent slept since Saturday :(
this always happens. im wrecked today
I've had about 3 hours sleep.
FYI: I haven't read anyone's replies- sorry.
I'm not reading yours.
Fingers crossed it'll be my last one.
But I'll go along with peer pressure...
I'm okay, going to have to blast a lot of work today because tomorrow is a work piss up (awards ceremony, very exciting), and I'm leaving early on Friday to go to Cambridge and have a proper formal meal at my old college with cheese and port and all the trimmings...
I went out and did a pub quiz last night - just me and this girl from work. I asked her if anyone else (ie Greeny) was coming and she said they were all watching the football, so I guess I'm entering my customary straight gay best friend role. I was literally about to ask her what was happening with Greeny, and had literally said "So..." when some fat bitch from the next table turned around and complemented us on our score, then wouldn't shut up chatting.
I hate to have to say this, but
the female lead in this scenario and not the fat bitch.
Though maybe keep the fat bitch as a back up.
I feel very detatched from the whole thing. She's still quite pleasant to spend time with, so I'm oddly content to just go with the flow.
Can someone tell me a joke please?
Now available, the final part of the criminally under-read Bamboo: http://bit.ly/exCCi8
WARNING: CONTAINS SCENES OF POWER VIOLENCE <<< not for faint hearted
0-0 is a fair reflection of the game. Shudderingly aweful.
and my throat. If I attempt to clear my throat there's no end and I sound like a 60-a-day choking to death, which isn't nice for my workmates.
Otherwise I feel absolutely fine.
We won 11 - 4 with only 5 players - one girl during the warm up tripped and banged her elbows but definitely played it up as way more than just a knock to the funny bone. There were tears and she had to get lifted off the ground because she couldn't move. It was amazing that when her boyfriend arrived to take her home (yes she called her boyfriend to come fetch her) she was able to bend her arms and hug and kiss him and then carried her bag in the crook of her one 'sore' elbow. So in my current state of mind I was really irritated. Otherwise, I keep trying to get up for early morning yoga and I keep feeling like crying when I wake up. Not sure whats going on with me.
How's your job going too? Seems like that might be the cause of your woes when you wake up? Or not.
Just call me Dr. Darcy
Finally starting to get into this, getting in early for work thing previously I used to dash in with only a minute to spare.
According to the infographic sean posted awhile back the best way to encourage your body to sleep is to try your hardest to stay awake, I've not tried this as I'm usually knackered around 12 anyway but it could be worth looking into.
Didn't wake up sweating though, so I'm definitely not meo.
got a flat tyre and had to walk about 100 miles to the bike shop cos i left my pump at my brothers. quite annoying. actually very annoying.
missed my brothers gigs cos i'm inept. total bullshit.
got some bullshit work thing after work, that could blatantly be during the day. which is bullshit.
sophia: get a job then you'll sleep better. cheers.
feeling quite despondant today about it all tbh.
i dont want to work in an office again but i can't really afford not to :'(
ps. reply to my email you wanker
I'm going to see the Room at the cinema on Friday - what should I take? Spoons?
Made my second pizza last night (no photos this time) and it was better than my first attempt. Sauce was a bit more punchy and the dough lighter.
Los Campesinos! tonight. At 29, will I be the oldest person there? Think I might be.
Nowhere better to put this, so I'll tell you all here...
Just went down to the self service tills in Tesco to get lunch. Woman in front of me couldn't wait to start eating her rice crackers she was so hungry, even though she hadn't paid yet.
Gets to the till, *unrecognised item in bagging area*.
Who is so hungry/childish, they can't help themselves from eating before they get out of the shop?
Also, woman demolishing rice crackers, must be on a diet, no? She had two packets of jammie dodgers in her hands. I expect they were desert.
Finally, I don't think this was any of you, but if it was, it's time to own up.
yes I would.
and was never topped with 3 different kinds of salami. YUM.
I was in tesco the other day and I hadn't eaten for ages and though I was going to faint so I ripped open a bag of assorted roasted nuts. Some of them fell on the floor. I didn't care and just shoved a load of them in my gob.
It's one thing to eat them (not a very good one) but it meant the machine didn't work.
PEOPLE WHO cause the self-service check-outs to fuck up
I just didn't really want to start ANOTHER people who thread.
It was a fudge Frijj milkshake though. Nom.
i saw a woman devour a Bounty bar whilst in a mini-mart-type store and then present the wrapper to the cashier. she couldn't have been in the shop more than five minutes - i can't see how she couldn't wait! (i can just about see the point if you were doing a massive monthly shop but still...)
She could definately have waited.
