ain't using that ol' shit from yesterday.
I've been in work 10 minutes and already hate it.
I'm still ill.
I need to find something fun to do tonight in London. I don't like the responsibility for thinking of dates as mine are always a bit shit. Probably just go for Nandos.
it looks amazing
She didn't say ANYTHING about the food but said that you got to play games on the table. Maybe one day but I need a cheap mid-week date.
That's the place I went to last week, as discussed in the last actual Wednesday morning thread. The food's really good but the service isn't all that.
Quite enjoyed chef cam, though.
It makes me mis XO a bit.
We NEED a group meal. When hyg gets back from holiday, we'll arrange a nice meal like before.
I'm already making a mental shortlist...
I was boring some people a while back about how you could do this with projectors and stuff and they were like whatevs and then I found thils and showed them and still they were unimpressed.
I just had a tea and seem to have gone mental. Excellent.
Have you been cutting down on caffiene? I've started drinking fake coffee, rather than my six espressos. I miss my six espressos.
My Mum made me buy a Lottery ticket last night. I didn't win. I've never known disappointment like it.
I've gone cold turkey on coffee, the odd proper tea but mainly mint tea (which we get at work). I'm rapidly becoming convinced that being permanently hopped up on caffeine was the only thing that made my job even slightly interesting.
You probably won't win the lottery until you sign up for my Super Lucky 10% To Fidel program.
I'm being grumpy. Is this what I'm like on no coffee?! IS THIS THE REAL ME??!
I'm so upset that I didn't win. Mum's response was: Well, you can do it again tonight! She's going to turn me into a gambler.
I don't know what to do today. I'm bored.
sorry to hear you are ill. Sup?
Hmm. I'm afraid i'm boring so don't know what's happening. sorry
It ruined my last weekend so I hope its gone by this weekend.
get well soon
- Nothing to do in work until a quite important meeting later
- Last day in work before Bestival and Australia
- Saw couple have a fistfight on the train yesterday. Also saw a man with a marmoset in his pocket.
- New Beirut album is swell.
because you can 'uneat' it but it's fucking annoying.
I was involved in a fight on the train today (although I wasn't throwing or receiving punches, but instead crouching down shielding a guide dog who had been kicked by an absolute cunt of an excuse for a human being.)
That's genuinely one of the worst things I've ever heard. What an absolute bastard.
accusing her of not actually being blind. Stupid, ignorant arsehole in a rush ot get off his train, basically. Morning commuting brings out the worst in people, so much so that I'm going back to my rule of thumb of not setting foot on public transport until after 9.30am.
YOU CAN SEE IM TRYING TO GET OFF THE TRAIN, GET OUT OF MY WAY!
it's all a bit overwhelming, need to mtfu
lunchtime work 5 a side today, good times
far too much to take in at the moment. Fed up of contracts.
and go sightseeing
might leave the house before then though and go get some delicious falafel at the naschmarkt, and buy some postcards from the musuemsquartier
my parents are coming to visit in a couple of weeks, so i think we'll go then.
and stuff keeps literally falling out of my nose and landing on the desk in front of me. i might get a mcmuffin
but BT connected our telephone today which is nice. INTERNET ORDER.... HO!
So that's where them ho's at...
wish it could be like that every day.
Go to the front of the train at Brighton station...it's less crowded as all the last minute n00bs jump on the back few carriages and crowd it out.
Also found a cheeky little singe seat, which isn't quite wide enough for my shoulders but gives me more personal space/leg room.
Still, commute home means I get home at 8pm and it's already dark then. Went for a run when I got in..along the sea front in 40mph winds. People looked at me like I was a bit weird out running in that weather. Jordan loves this story.
Looks like I may have a spare as my mate has been struck down with a virus.
but getting a new washing machine today :D HAPPY.
Who's going to the Drop on sat btw? Should be a larf.
Should be fun.
And come to the Victoria beforehand too ok thanks seeya.
forget any sense of fiscal responsibility.
The Drop kills me though. I can't do anything the next day.
checked my bank balance the other day and was like D:
The easy way to stop the Drop from killing you is to stay as far away from LLB and JohnM as possible.
so long, sunday. :/
so long, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday...
anything to escape Rob's 'clutches'.
Victoria = gig! gig gig gig!
I spent last night sewing and litening to Belle and Sebastian. I am officially the twee-est person ever. I'm hanging my head in shame, guys.
You need to listen to Slayer and cook a hog roast.
You NEED to.
everyone should do this once a week regardless.
....but i'm vegan.
the way I play to make it to my primary school job is on my bike. which is yellow. and has a basket. I'm gonna get a fuck off dragon tattoo over my WHOLE BODY to compensate
Just kill the animal with your bare hands, gut it with your bare hands, roast it over an open fire you made yourself.
You can chuck it in the bin afterwards or just leave it for the foxes.
There is more to my personality than my job and my bike.
maybe [safetywink] was needed.
In that case, :D
I got The Orange Box yesterday, tonight I shall be playing Portal and Half Life 2.
YOU HAVE SENT ME THE SAME EMAIL THREE TIMES.
STOP SENDING ME EMAILS TELLING ME TO LICK YOUR BALLS.
trying to log in to my computer for 84 minutes now. I should just go home. Proofreading the brochure I wrote, have found 15 things that need correcting so far. I spent most of yesterday choosing photos for it which was extremely fun. Also I might stop going to boxing fitness as the instructor is moving to ITV1(!) and the others are rubbish.
I have to go get my keys for my new house and I hope that my flatmate doesn't give me a tour of my very own house it seems like the type of thing she'd do. Also I hope it isn't shit since I can't remember it. Or where it is.
work is good though
Fuck off Wednesday.
both were real good. Woods kept the horrible vocals to a minimum and just jammed out these amazing instrumental tings, and Kurt Vile was Kurt Vile. then I totally sobered up on the train back to Edinburgh and the bus back to campus, yet somehow ended up until 6am finishing a bottle of Glenn's vodka with a second year and arguing about the state of British politics. good work, me. now I feel horrible.
that you're now going to see all the bands that played there?
You say that like just you asking for it means they'll get banned. Heh.
But if someone just called you a cunt, that's quite rude. But a whole screen full of cunts is more a joke than an insult.
Don't know why I'm guessing, don't actually care
if a man wanders around using phrases like "inboxed you", some folk might say he was even asking for an inbox full of cunts.
anyway, we all knew it was brusma.

PS The Flight Centre are announcing the winner of the Thailand thing soon!! GET BACK ON FB.
get me a ticket yeah?
The sale was disappointing. Miami. No thanks, the Flight Centre.
I wanna go somewhere cheap. I have an embarrassment of holiday left YET AGAIN.
But more the merrier for Thailand
with chintz coming a few days later
Although that's just so I can get more days holiday than I'd normally be able to so not too bothered. I don't care, I just want some sun for cheap at some point in the winter.
Don't give him deets, dude.
um, forget all that up there, fidel ^ it was a typo
whevs, Thailand is totally played out anyhow
you jobless bum
means that I am more capable of going on holiday than any of you douchebags.
AND I would like to point out that I am recieving no benefits whatsoever. HMMPFFF.
I really wish I was one of those people that would start an arguement about something like this. Maybe I'll give it a go. Something to do like.
I look like I've been working in the fields. Mother is NOT impressed.
I don't know why I get a hard time for my 'tan' I am not that tanned at all. You lot are just ridiculously pale. Kentish croc wearers.
Funereal atmosphere at work, really depressing. My underwear is teally uncomfortbale too; feels like it's forcing my stuff into the shape of Noddy's hat. Not a good afternoon all round.
I might be working for Darlow Smithson next week. I'm waiting for a call. I needed to share. And freak out a bit. Here we go.
That is AMAZING news :D x
So excited!! It totally suits my inner geek, too. :D
either way, BIG celebratory dinrks on sunday for the sheer excitement of this :D
She called and left a voicemail...I called here back...and left a voicemail :D
Yes!! It's only temp, but a foot in the door nonetheless!! My friend works for Endemol, it's part of the same company- so if it goes well- this could be very good.
if all goes well jaeger all round at the drop, yeah.
