I am going to CARDIFF today!
How are YOU?
Hope I don't get kettled
...I don't think it deserves full on capital letters...
Hoping it is brighter than yesterday though, I got slowly wet in the mist of rain that cloaks this pleasant city..
Otherwise I'm powering though OJ, ibuprofen, Innocent 'superfoods' smoothie and vitamin C in a desperate offensive again a bastard sore throat that has the trappings of a bastard cold.
i've been promised well nice weather as well
there was a live mouse in my sisters work boot. Mother laughed at her and tried to shoo the mouse out of the front door, instead it ran towards her, over her feet and behind a bookcase. She began to scream. Dad had a strop and told them off for being 'wimpy girls', the mouse ran at him, he shrieked a bit. I went back to bed.
What's there that I could/should do?
It's raining a lot, but I got to work early enough to get the best mug. I've no idea where it came from but it's massive; it's like drinking a bowl of tea.
i hate when someone takes my mug. I keep my own thermo mug on my desk now.
It says Credit Suisse Asset Management on the side, so I doubt someone's brought it in from home.
went the gym last night, didnt sleep well. I have work to do today buttttt meh to it for an hours or so I'm watching west wing and thinking about a nice showwer.
I was fine twenty minutes, fuck sake
It's just dawned on me that I really don't need to be here anymore. Should I go?
Whoa-oa, the guns of Brixton.
I'm leaving the office for a bit. I expect it in my inbox by my return. There's your task for the morning...
Sorry, I totally forgot! MUST BE A BETTER FRIEND.
That was Paul Simonon.
I looked after the office dog for a bit last night, took him on the bus forgetting he was racist. There were some growls but he kept most of his prejudices to himself.
I'm wearing the same outfit as the girl who sits next to me and the girl who sits behind me :D
How do you have a racist dog?
the same outfit but a boy had it on :(
Then the next day our entire team wore a black and white stripey top and blue jeans.
I have been given a yellow card for 'breach of the confidential clear desk requirement'. 3 strikes and out, more office nonsense.
OH NO! What did you do?
Well I thought I had made quite an effort, unfortunately I think the post it note stuck to my monitor containing various phone numbers is deemed to be 'in breach'. Ho hum...
It might help your cause a little bit :D
I'm actually dreading clearing it when I leave!
I have taken a photo of mine and sent it to the Aon police dept asking what the is problem bruv?
You're coming? Hooray!
I remember in a previous job, an area manager came round after we'd had a big clean up. We were told off for having pens on the counter.
going to see KILLING JOKE later though. lunch date before too, so its not all bad
You lucky bugger.
just remembered i'm interviewing them too, so have to leave early. better crack on with work
he's a total lunatic (in a good way) whereas Geordie is a chain smoking mute.
Starting to panic a bit about tomorrow. Can someone bump the open mic thread, I need to ask some questions. Or I could just PM xylopwn. Hmm.
Im feeling like a big steamy turd with a hat on today! chest pains need to fuck right off or im going to go nuts. I cant take time off work because im trying to look good to get the permanent position.
+ my mum is taking me for dinner later. Im going to order some comfort good. It might involve bacon and mash. mmmm.
Dont know why i said that. Hah! i usually wear one though. I have MILLIONS of hats
Got a really dull meeting this morning and I have to take the MINUTES. Bumhats.
Only record every third relevant word spoken.
Attempt to translate every fifth recorded word into another language.
Draw a picture for every eighth recorded word.
Try to figure out exactly what was said when you get back to your desk.
but phonetically spelt.
Which is a sentence I never thought I'd type.
I have a slightly blocked nose, which is nothing if not annoying.
I hadn't heard much by her besides the thing Kanye interrupted ages ago. Seems like pretty average American pop.
Taylor Swift is brilliant.
I took a load of sleeping pills and slept like a log last night HOWEVER I woke up with a migraine. And a really bad one at that. Its still there and I forgot to bring any paracetomols and being on the PC is going to make it 10x worse but there isn't an awful lot I can do. Everything is pretty rubs at the moment.
On a brighter note, I will be baking a big cake tonight for the open mic night/chintzys birthday. I hope it turns out alright otherwise I will go into a massive strop and probably have a breakdown.
TEA IS NEEDED.
sleeping pills are massively rubbish. you have my sympathies x
and actually do very little to help me sleep.
What cake are you making? I want cake!
I'm drinking Blossom Early Grey, I wish it wasn't limited edition, I love it so <3
I don't normally get a headache after though but I think it may just be where I was up all the night before worrying about work stuffs.
Hmm...the cake! I haven't fully made my mind up yet (and stupid chintzy won't tell me her preference or what she wants!!) but I know I'm gonna make some shortbread too. Ah I love baking. I haven't done it in SO LONG so I am incredibly excited to do it tonight.
I still haven't tried Earl Grey! :( I need to. I really want to go for afternoon tea somewhere. I want mini cakes and sandwiches and tea in cups.
make a chocolate beetroot cake
ARE YOU SAYING YES TO CHOCOLATE BEETROOT CAKE?!
Gimme some options....you've got until 11am.
cucumber cake, made exclusively with mashed up cucumbers and then formed into the shape of a giant cucumber with cucumber candles.
how many layers? I only really bake triple layered cakes. Can I do it with three layers? What is ontop/filling? Chocolate anache? Cream cheese? Buttercream? Chocolate something? If I'm doing a chocolate cake, its gonna have to be really sickly and chocolatey.
One layer seems a bit boring though. I like a big tall cake.
will you be coming to this open mic night? You can try my cake but you can't say anything bad about it.
layer it with chocolate cream with shavings of milk and dark chocolate mixed in in the middle.
She likes almondy stuff and she likes chocolate.
Carrot cake is maybe my favourite cake
Or erm... I like anything almondy, orrrr maple and walnut, orrrr OH I DON'T KNOW. I have to go out. Text me any cakey dramas.
I'll have a mooch about and see. I can do a good carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. I'll do that if you can't think of any other options.
You can't taste the beetroot when its cooked. Its meant to be really nice but I haven't tried one or tried baking one I saw it being made on TV and its meant to cut down the calories in the cake. I'm assuming you put less oil or butter in if you're using beetroot as the juices will make the cake moist.
i'm going to go watch submarine this afternoon - hoping to actually leave the house today.
pom pom pom p-pom
and his dad began going 'pom pom pom pom' and then his mum told him to 'stop pomming'. He then began going 'tum tum te tum' and then she said 'stop tutting'. He then began going 'la de da de da' and she hit him and the car swerved dangerously into oncoming traffic.
my wisdom teeth hurt. gonna go out to get some pain killers and maybe soemthing to eat then probably so my essay and stuff.
going to the library
pub at lunch time; mine's a pint of amusingly titled beer, and a chicken burger.
Made it as far as lucien's venn diagram (which I'm delighted to have had the chance to inspect) but -- fuck me -- how on earth did it make 500+ posts?
stubbornness and twee body image drama.
I'm well. A colleague of mine told me this morning that she thinks my beard makes me look like a lizard.
I feel like that chap off Tool Academy now.
failing pretty bad so far. Friends, eh - tossers
you can have it if you want.
also, did you make a career choice? i forgot to ask you.
On the upside, no more Radio 2.
Is it still morning? Why am I here? Who are you?
This made me laugh a LOT.
