I watched the South Park Movie last night for the first time in years. Still brilliant, FYI.
Going to ask for the exact same cut I have had for about six years now, she's going to hate me.
We went to the opening night of Living Worlds at the museum last night, the buffet was from Gurkha Grill (yummy) and it was really good. I was playing with a fat tailed gecko, he was awesome!
I can't concentrate at all at the moment, any tips?
is to switch off internet access.
and finding cool stuff online. It's just I can't think about what I'm doing at the moment and when it comes to writing it up it feels impossible :(
B vitamins FTW!
I've got an extension for Chrome called StayFocusd that allows you to do all sorts of blocking specific sites. Now I have 4 hours a day where I can't access any websites at all.
My desk has never looked so clean.
as part of my job. YOU KNOW THIS.
it's just generally. Even when I sit isolated in a meeting room with a notepad, I can't get anything done. Guess I'm just having a bad week
all totally self-inflicted from the two previous days' behaviour though. got some weird/upsetting news yesterday and barely slept last night. gotta actually finish my dissertation today, jeez.
I suggest a big slice of cake. And tea. Lots of tea.
You just have to... stop. I think a friend of mine had to print it off in the end to stop me tinkering.
I'm sure it will be fine though!
No, I did not watch South Park last night. Instead I took my parents for a meal beacuse I'm such a good daughter. They paid.
Where did you go for food? I'm out tonight with mates, it's a toss-up between the Real Greek and GBK (two places where we can find vouchers).
Last night I skipped my team's new local radio programme. I listened to a bit this morning, and unexpectedly, it's completely hilarious. There are some real characters on my team who - somewhat unintentionally - just make it funny. I think I have to take part next week.
I predict more irksome kid/parents/MY SWiM LANE japes
I'm very glad I don't have work today. I don't know why I'm up really.
Sunny and warm but not over hot, and not deserted but not crowded - April is a great time to go.
I was wondering if I might be able to pick your brains on some jobs related stuff today. Is it okay to send you a message later?
I managed to limit myself to only put 10 up on Facebook though.
i'm sorry, i don't listen to hip hop
Bring me Bill Gates!
I was supposed to helping my brother-in-law out with his window cleaning round but he stupidly left his stuff at his usual helpers house. There's the extra money I was expecting down the pan. I'm not in a massive need for it, but you know, money.
Me and the Mrs were the only team to get the following question right at the pub quiz last night...
Which make of car is also the name of the Persian god of Light?
Unfortunately we were still 1 point away from a place.
I'm off to a charity quiz tomorrow with a team from work. I'm being held up as some sort of secret weapon. I hope I deliver.
What I did mean to say is that we should have a pub quiz meat. me, you, PO for the celeb questions few others, would be great.
Let's find something and get on it.
I got all kindsa knowledge. Maybe I'll have a rival team.
I watch a lot of telly.
no one wants to take me? FINE! I'll start my own team too.
I'm not tellyist.
ONE OF US, ONE OF US.
but I can't be split in two. Its just not possible. I'm going to have to disappoint one of you.
One lovely DiS team, no splitting into factions, we're not a left wing pressure group.
and said it was to help with celeb stuff, there was a massive feminist outcry.
I am propbably the *last* person you'd put forward for a pop[ular culture round. Just sayin, YOU FUCKING FUCKER ;D
is because TBO did it last time and it led to all those hilarious hi-jinks.
*Tip-toes backwards slowly, leaving her to rest*
Since I only just got in due to being... incapacitated for a good chunk of the early morning, and after a harrowing journey in on a bus with an engine which idled at the resonant frequency of my bowels: I am officially done with Pizza Hut.
Nothing more isolating than having troublesome bowels.
My pants remain mercifully unbeshitted.
I thank you for your concerns during these trying times.
On my way through it for the fourth time within 8 months. Every single season. Im seriously!
Morning you guys, im going through a survey here and there was no work required as it was done by another company. Its says 'Done by Otters' instead of others. lolz @ 9:32am
Thew film is indeed great.
Today I have a meeting with my new boss where I will present a report to her. I imagine it is too long and boring and I'll be told to cut most of it.
I'm currently reading Twilight, it is unintentionally hilarious, though I totally understand why straight women like it.
YOU KILLED KENNY! stuff. Because they turn around episodes so fast, there's a lot of really good, topical satire in it.
There is a part of me that would like to read Twilight. As yet, I have resisted.
I'm feeling chirpier than I have done all week, probably something to do with it being nearly Friday which is my last day before a WEEK OFF, which culminates in my brother's wedding next weekend.
This week's theme of having zero work to do seems to have continued though which is a bit annoying.
Need some non-obvious things to do online to waste time, anyone got any suggestions?
Read the entire wikipedia. Blog about what you are reading.
Eat lots of cake. Blog about the cakes.
Read lots of blogs, blog about the blogs you are reading. Blog about blogging about blogs in a different blog.
and im at shitting work ..... Ball bags
If it's any consolation, I'll be in the same position in exactly two weeks time. It is utterly bobbins.
Mine was on a Saturday this year. I still skived off on the Friday.
My drummer's just said he can't get time off work for touring for the foreseeable future, now stuck with a tricky situation. Really need to play out of town a lot more. Should we replace him? Anyone been in a similar situation?
Takes far too long to programme! Also you're totally at the mercy of a soundman.. though the timing is always 100% tight which gives you a slightly robotic groove which is cool.
and they had a drum machine.
It went well from what I remember.
as I won't be starting my job until Wednesday now due to a delay with paperwork? Eh. I've got to go to the agency today to sign papers and give them my passport n stuff. I'll do that late afternoon and then I can mooch until people finish work then do something fun, hopefully.
Even if you want to get going with it / want the money, you'll spend most of your life working, enjoy having a few days free!
but the thought of now having 4 working days off scares me. I get bored pretty easily and my only solution is SHOPPING!!
I guess i'll just go to the gym - boooorrring.
That means I'm horny and abusive. You've been warned.
was a bit of a surprise in the kitchen this morning.
I'm so sorry :(
I'm going home now
the thing that someone bought for a joke for someones birthday ages that is on his desk
do you think I would hate you any less? DO YOU?
It's a musical! With genuinely catchy songs!
Theres no way i'd watch the film.
UP THERE IS SO MUCH ROOM, WHERE BABIES BURP AND FLOWERS BLOOM
Had book club last night - we discussed THE WARLOCK OF FIRETOP MOUNTAIN. No-one completed it properly, but I made it to the end, defeated the Warlock but didn't have the right keys to open the treasure chest. BALLS.
Also, what should I listen to next?
The Vandals - Hitler Bad, Vandals Good
Warped Tour Comp 2001
Beastie Boys - Ill Communication
Punk O Rama 5
I'm sorry, I just dont trust anything that bleeds for 5 days and doesn't die!
That's the best, as it's got Undeclinable Ambuscade on it.
I was listening to Punk O Rama 4 yesterday. IT'S MY, IT'S MY IT'S MY LIIIIIFFFEEEEE. Oh Agnostic Front. <3
Feeling pretty down on lyf for some reason atm. Need to get out of this god forsaken place. Got work at 12, don't really want to get out of bed. At all.
I keep coming into the morning thread when they're well underway. It's like arriving at a dinner party half way through the main course, but opposite like.
When I look back, I've only had 1.5 small glasses of red wine over that time too. Gosh. I've had very little sleep, but feel ok, considering. I just need to somehow get over my massively grumpy mood. I might take it out on a bodypump class at lunchtime. I'm doing a 5k charity race on Sunday, on absolutely no training, ahahahaha.<--- won't be laughing when she can't walk on tuesday. I'm not even sure where my trainers are, as it's been about 2 months since I ran.
ROCK N ROLL
I missed it. A lot.
And you really don't need it- so long as you're getting around 6 hours sleep a night, a half decent diet, and you're not a total couch potato, then your body's hormones will make it's own 'wake-up' and 'go to sleep' chemiucals for you on their own.
I am not doing this through choice really. well, it's a choice of sorts. Be rather poorly for the rest of your life, or give this up. PAH. (At least it's not chocolate.... oh wait a minute!!!)
itll be so good to have it off me back. i havent as much as masturbated in 5 days.
Make sure to go with someone so you can play on the circular pool table thing. I had no one with me and looked like a loser trying to enjoy it on my own.
every single person got chatted to in this thread apart from me
